Getting healthy is like gardening. You have to learn how to
prepare the soil, take the time to nurture and protect yourself.
Do you love to plant your garden each spring but get frustrated
when the harvest does not live up to expectations? Putting in all
those new plants in freshly worked soil is so rewarding. The
spring weather is cool and rain usually comes regularly and the
plants grow beautifully. But then summer comes and suddenly the
garden needs watering, weeding and pest control. Harvests
decrease and plants start suffering if they don't get regular
My gardening pattern has always looked like the above scenario
but I am determined this year is going to be different. I have
made the commitment to learn how to garden as I have learned how
to keep myself healthy. There are three reasons I have been
successful at getting healthy and I am sure if I apply the same
principles to gardening I can have a wonderful harvest.
Three reasons for success in getting healthy:
My gardening success plan:
- Learning all you can about staying healthy and applying that
- Taking the time to nurture your health and get all the nutrition
- Doing what is needed to combat external influences and attacks on
- Learn all I can about the soil and needs of individual plants
- Take the time needed to weed and water my garden
- Protect my plants from severe weather and pest attacks
There is so much information on health and gardening. Much of my
knowledge about natural health and how to get healthy has come
from the health care professionals I know through the network
marketing companies I work with. I have found great value from
having these professionals explain how specific nutritional
products work to help support and heal the body. My health has
improved so much and I can deal in a natural way with almost all
routine illnesses and injuries.
I found a similar source of gardening information at my local Geo
Growers. The staff at Geo Growers is able to guide me as to what
types of soil are best for different plants or gardening styles.
I have a few good natural gardening books but it is nice to be
able to have an experienced person to ask why apple cider vinegar
should be used instead of seaweed or what type soil strawberries
like. Slowly but surely, I am learning.
Taking the time
Finding the time to take care of myself is always a challenge but
applying preventive nutrition has been time well spent. In
addition to my regular support of my digestion with Simplexity
probiotics and enzymes, I also take this form of algae that is the heart of the algae with the cell wall removed to
support my nervous system.
Farming and working with horses keeps me out in the elements and
barn chores sometimes stress my body to the max. I can always
reach for this immune support supplement if I feel a cold coming on or
drink a little extra Xango juice when I am stiff and sore. Extra Coenzyme Q 10 will fix me up if my gums need extra attention
or wheat sprouts and algae if I get too much sun.
I am looking forward to having this same kind of ability to
support my garden during hard times. I am starting with healthy
soil. I have already taken steps to keep the chickens away from
my plants and will use sun and wind screens if needed. Hopefully
we won't have a drought this year but even if we do I plan to
have a wonderful harvest.
