Let the Food Be Thy Medicine

Last week I felt the symptoms of cold was developing so I took a proactive approach by stepping up my water intake to keep mucus line moist and about 50ml of freshly squeezed organic pure calamansi juice on empty stomach which is excellent Vitamin C. (Pure calamansi increases alkalinity of the body. If you put water or honey in it becomes acidic) then after 30 minutes I drank half a cup of probiotic.  Did you know that the live cultures of good bacteria fights the growth of disease causing bacteria? (And if you are under antibiotic medication, increasing your intake of probiotic restores your inner eco-system as antibiotic destroys the healthy flora in the gut).

For breakfast I ate a bowl of oats  which is great source of zinc with banana and raisins. The I spiced up my hot drink with organic ginger and honey (spicy food clears congestion and soothes itchy throats). My late Mom always gave us quick natural relief from her old chicken soup recipe which I ate and sprinkled with a good amount of crushed garlic. Garlic is antiviral and antibacterial. I also did a bit of yoga to stretch torso and bring energy to head (decongest sinuses) and open up respiratory tract.  Plus a good exposure to the morning sun gives you a shot of  natural Vitamin D. In no time at all, the entire virus was flushed out of my system naturally!

Our very own local milk

img830Here are the facts:

  • 98% of all milk in the Philippines is imported and only 2% goes to our local Filipino farmers. This milk is sourced and bottled by women farmers in Bulacan whose only link to market is through us and others who support them. But this is not the main reason why you should drink carabao’s milk  but because carabao’s milk has 58% more calcium, 40% more protein,   43% less cholesterol than regular milk!
  • The higher calcium content is excellent in preventing hypertension, maintaining bone health and teeth and controlling obesity.
  • The taste is so pure and fresh, and guaranteed with no hormones and antibiotics compared with those milks in cans and cartons in your grocery shops which are added of sugar and contain chemicals and medicines that were transferred to the milk which contributes to obesity and other diseases.

This is available 2x a week, Wed and Sat at TheVillageGreenShop in the following sizes:

  • 500 ml – P 150.00
  • 750 ml – P225.00
  • 1 litre – P 250.00

We also sell cow’s milk from  local breed.

Quick update from TheVillageGreenShop

  • We are currently experiencing an increase in subscription which we are grateful about.
  • The customers of TheVillageGreenShop are composed of subscribers – 1/3 are “long-time avid organic eaters” – they are also looking to switch to 100% organic and low-impact lifestyle. We fill their food basket each week – from rice to spices.   A third group is partly organic and another third is experimental – they are new converts who are looking to see the difference and impact of eating organic food.
  • We have added a few items in our weekly basket.  Check them out here https://thevillagegreenshop.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/new-items-at-thevillagegreenshop/

Some of you might be shifting gradually to 100% organic not only in food but also in personal products. We are glad we discovered Human Heart Nature.  Please check them out here www.humanheartnature.com. They have values and mission that is quite similar to us so we are happy to work with them and bring their items to TheVillageGreenShop.

We have switched to 100% natural and chemical free shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body wash, soap, facial cream, etc. Each week we retire a commercial brand and replace them with an organic personal product that contains NO SLS/SLES, ALS/ALES, PEGS, parabens, phthalates, silicones and other harmful chemicals! You can place your order with us at the following details:
