The Case for Organic Food and Natural Medicine

Don’t panic, eat organic. As OCA, and a growing number of nutritionists, medical practitioners, and healers never tire of pointing out, a major defense, and likely our best defense, against chronic disease (affecting now the majority of U.S. adults and children—four times the rate of 40 years ago), the flu, cancer, heart disease, and even engineered viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, is to cultivate a strong immune system, optimum Vitamin D levels, adequate Omega 6 intake, and a healthy microbiome.

And of course the best way to achieve this desired state is to grow, cook, and consume an organic and regenerative diet of fresh whole foods (everyone) and grass-fed or pastured meat and animal products (if you’re a carnivore). In turn this organic diet needs to be complimented by regular exercise, fresh air, sunshine, adequate sleep, positive thoughts, and natural herbs and dietary supplements.

Of course this organic regimen is easier said than done in an engineered “GloboCap” society based upon labor exploitation, 24/7 internet-programming, consumerism, high rents, student debt, racial and gender discrimination, medical malpractice, and an expanded menu of profit-at-any-cost business practices that pollute our air, water, environment, bodies, and our minds.

Unfortunately, today’s dominant “Big” powers, Big Food, Big Pharma, Big Biotech, Big Chemical, coalescing into what is now Big Brother, aided and abetted by indentured scientists, politician, and the media, have convinced, in fact panicked, a significant segment of the body politic. The GloboCap cabal tells us that organic food is too expensive (since the government refuses to stop subsidizing poison food and farming, and working class wages are kept artificially low); that affordable natural health remedies and off-patent generic drugs are a hoax; that clean air and water are a luxury only available to the affluent; and that your best strategy for survival is to stay away from “disinformation” purveyors such as OCA,, Children’s Health Defense, and the Alliance for Natural Health, and instead to rely upon an expanded menu of pharmaceutical drugs, mandatory rushed-to-market vaccines, gene therapy drugs, mandatory masks, and social distancing. But as political commentator and satirist C.J. Hopkins points out, what we are up against is not just inaccurate information and government incompetence and overreach, but an engineered psychological state of censorship, hopelessness, and fear, a Great Reset, or a Covid Death Cult, if you will. As Hopkins writes:

“Seriously, think about where we are currently, 18 months into our new “reality,” then go back and review how GloboCap blatantly rolled out the New Normal in the Spring of 2020… and the majority of the masses didn’t even blink. They seamlessly transitioned to the new “reality” in which a virus, rather than “white supremacists,” or “Russian agents,” or “Islamic terrorists,” had become the new official enemy. They put away the scripts they had been reciting verbatim from for the previous four years, and the scripts they had been reciting from for the previous 15 years before that, and started frantically jabbering Covid cult-speak like they were auditioning for an over-the-top Orwell parody… Which brings us to the problem of the Covidian cult … how to get through to them, which, make no mistake, we have to do, one way or another, or the New Normal will become our permanent “reality.”

“I [call] the New Normals a “Covidian Cult,” not to gratuitously insult or mock them, but because that is what totalitarianism is … a cult writ large, on a societal scale. Anyone who has tried to get through to them can confirm the accuracy of that analogy. You can show them the facts until you’re blue in the face. It will not make the slightest difference. You think you are having a debate over facts, but you are not. You are threatening their new “reality.” You think you are struggling to get them to think rationally. You are not. What you are is a heretic, an agent of demonic forces, an enemy of all that is “real” and “true.”

Why is it that the United States accepts as “normal” an ever-more deadly epidemic of chronic disease that now affects 145 million people (60% of the population have at least one chronic disease, with 42% suffering from two or more), while spending $3.8 trillion a year on health care, meanwhile chalking up more deaths from medical malpractice and pharma drug side effects, than any other nation in the industrialized world?

Why is it that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been able to trigger hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and premature deaths in the U.S.among the elderly and those in poor health—those suffering from pre-existing, chronic medical comorbidities such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, lung disease, and liver disease?

If you want to look at our deteriorating public health in more depth, check out the recent OCA-recommended book by Dr. Robert Lustig, Metabolic: The Lure and Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine where Lustig masterfully illustrates that  “Chronic diseases are not ‘druggable’, but they are ‘foodable’; processed food isn’t just toxic, it’s addictive; that the war between vegan and keto is a false war — the combatants are on the same side;” and that “Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side.”

Or read best-selling author, Dr. Mark Hyman’s book, Food Fix, where he points out that: “Our diet is the number one cause of death, disability, and suffering in the world. Our food has dramatically transformed over the last 100 years, and even more radically over the last 40 years, as we have eaten a diet of increasingly ultraprocessed foods made from a handful of crops (wheat, corn, soy)… Chronic disease is now the single biggest threat to global economic development. Lifestyle-caused diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer now kill nearly 50 million people a year, more than twice as many as die from infectious disease. Two billion people go to bed overweight and 800 million go to bed hungry in the world today. One in two Americans and one in four teenagers have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

Lobbyists’ influence over policy makers has put corporations, not citizens, at the center of every aspect of our food system, from what and how food is grown to what is manufactured, marketed, and sold. When money rules politics, it results in our current uncoordinated and conflicting food policies, which subsidize and protect and facilitate Big Food’s and Big Ag’s domination of our food system to the detriment of our population and our environment…”

Other recommended reading includes Dr. Stephanie Seneff’s recent book, Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate is Destroying Our Health and the Environment and the new eye-opener by Rupa Marya and Raj Patel called: Inflamed: Deep Medicine and the Anatomy of Injustice.

If you’ve been reading Organic Bytes for the last 18 months (or 24 years) you’re no doubt familiar with our promotion of organic foods and natural health, and our critique of the “official story” on the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19. If not you can read over our back issues here, or if you want to go into depth on COVID-19 and the Great Reset, you can read  my new best-selling book, co-authored by Dr. Joseph Mercola, with a Foreward by Roert F. Kennedy, called The Truth About COVID-19.
