How I Grow Medicinal Vegetables that Can Help Heal Disease

Alright this is John Kohler with GrowingYourGreens.com. Today we have another exciting episode for
you. We’re well into fall here and I’m still
getting my fall garden planted out and growing for the season. Got my lettuce bed. You guys probably can’t see it, it’s right
next door. You’ll probably see it in an upcoming shot. I’ve got this bed planted out on this side
and I got like about 5 other beds on the other side of the yard all planted out but today
I’m planted out another huge bed—this bed is approximately 4 feet by about 16 feet
long and so this calls for a lot of plans. My lettuce bed actually has I think about
104 plants in the same size bed. This bed, because I am planting a different
plant or crop, which is all of the—my leafy greens and Brassica family plants, they’re
going to require a little bit different spacing like about 12 inch spacing is what square
foot gardening calls for. I’m doing actually a diamond pattern instead
of a box pattern and I got between 14 inches in one direction and 11 inches in the other
direction so I’m fitting 72 plants in this raised bed. I thought I’d share with you guys, you know,
some of the special fertilizers that I’m putting in to my bed, into my soil to grow
higher quality and the most nutritious crops on the entire planet—but before I do, actually,
I want to share with you guys the plants I’ll be planting in this bed. So I got 3 flats here, I’m only going to probably
use like 2 flats, I’m going to pick and choose of these plants that I might have duplicates
of. But I’m going to go over all the different
kinds with you guys really quick. As you guys know, my channel is called GrowingYourGreens
and it’s called GrowingYourGreens for a reason because especially in the winter time
I want you guys to really focus on the leafy greens. These are the crops that grow really well
and they’re the most nutritious foods in the entire planet. All these plants here are basically anti-cancer
factories, right? They’re sitting out here in the sun, they’re
absorbing the sun rays, right, and they’re producing all these plant metabolites. The plant metabolites is actually what the
plant produces to keep itself healthy to prevent and defend itself from diseases and pests,
the weather and all these kinds of things. But more importantly when you eat the plants
you get those benefits and each one of these different kinds of plants produce little bit
different, you know, witch’s brew of these helpful compounds. Isothyocyanates is just one of these many
compounds. One of the discovered compounds—I’m sure
there’s plenty of other undiscovered ones. My goal everyday is to eat 2 pounds of leafy
greens and I’m easily able to do that in the winter time with all the greens I’m growing
in my garden. So anyways let’s go over the different greens
I’ll be growing this year in my garden here. Heirloom kale, red Russian, I love that guy
a lot. It’s a really good performer. In some areas it will grow year round. I’ve got 12 of those guys. Over here we got some more leafy greens. This is the heirloom kale lacinato also known
as black kale, Tuscan kale, or dino kale. I’ve got a bunch of those guys here. I’ve got like 3 six packs, I don’t know
if I’ll be planting all those guys in here. And I got one six pack of the Georgia collards. Oh, I did want to mention—the dino kale,
that’s also another really good performer. That will grow in the summer here, also the
winter here. So if you only had to pick one kale, I’d
pick the dinosaur kale. It’s like the most resilient one I found. Going over to collard greens, if you had to
pick only one kind of collard greens I’d pick the Georgia collards, they’re more heat
resistant. Actually, I have some that I think I actually
over-summered, because the summers here are quite hot. I’ve had plants go on the entire summer,
Georgia collards. I grow all these for the leafy greens although
these plants will also go to flower and set seed which are also edible. The next category of plants I’m growing, mostly
for the flours but also the greens. The greens on all these guys are all edible. Up next here we got some cheddar cauliflower. I love the cheddar cauliflower a lot. It grows the cauliflower but instead of growing
the white head it grows a brilliant, cheddar cheese colored cauliflower. So it’s like, yellow-orangeish color. Really cool. I want to encourage you guys besides just
eating phytonutrient rich foods like the leafy greens here, you also want to eat highly pigmented
foods. Instead of eating something white, you know,
like a white chocolate—that was a bad example, but I really want you guys to focus on foods
of color, right? There’s new emerging research that has already
come out, has been published, and studies that have yet not to be published and not
to come out yet but the phytonutrients are probably in my opinion one of the most important
nutrients in the food and especially when you’re eating all these refined process foods,
white flower, white sugar, white vinegar, right, all these foods have all these beneficial
pigments processed out of them, and then much of the beneficial properties of the food goes
down the toilet, in my opinion. So that’s why I’m growing some really rich
and colorful foods in my garden to do the exact opposite. This is actually long island brussel sprouts. I don’t generally get the brussel sprouts
here, the brussel sprouts and the stalks everybody always wants but I don’t really care because
those guys actually, I grow for the immature buds. Maybe I grow also in addition, for the leaves. So I don’t care if I don’t get the brussel
sprouts, what I’m used to in the store, all the brussel sprout plant produces is leaves,
copious amounts of leaves that I just eat like collards or kale or cauliflower leaves
or broccoli leaves which all have very similar nutrition for you guys. Of course, next we got some more stuff. We got that cauliflower rainbow mix. So this probably has the white, the cheddar,
and the purple cauliflower in there. Like that a lot. Let’s move this guy over here. And then also I got these guys. We got graffiti cauliflower. Look at the picture on there. This is like a nice purple, rich colored cauliflower
so once again, you know, I want you guys to eat the foods of color. There’s been some special research regarding
purple foods. The research was done with purple carrots. They fed rats purple carrots along with junk
food. And then they fed another set of rats, just
the junk food alone and the rats eating the purple carrots with the junk food either did
not gain weight and/or lost weight, whereas the animals eating the junk food gained the
weight. Now, I’m not saying that you know, eat purple
high antioxidant rich foods like purple carrots and then eat junk food—why even eat the
junk food whatsoever? So ij ust like to eat the deep rich purple
pigemented foods such as purple carrots, purple cauliflower, purple broccoli, blueberries,
blackberries, without the junk food, right, to get the benefits of those guys because
they probably help keep you slim and also help keep you healthy. And over in this bunch we got just the standard
purple cauliflower, so I’m not sure if that’s different from the graffiti variety that you
guys just saw. Of course we got one last six pack here we’re
going to go over really quick. Now I’m also growing the broccoli, right? I think it’s sad how cauliflower and broccoli
are grown for the immature flower buds. That’s what they’re known for. You go to buy broccoli or cauliflower in the
store and you get the immature flower buds that you know are just the flower, that you’re
going to eat. This is sad because people will not use the
leaves of these plants. The leaves of these plants can be eaten just
like a kale or collard green. In some instances, in my opinion, they’re
actually more delicious and sweeter than the kale and collard greens. So as long as these guys are growing, they’re
producing leaves, I can harvest these leaves to put in juices, add to smoothies, make kale
chips or broccoli leaf chips or cauliflower leaf chips or Brussels sprout leaf chips. To me it’s all the same. Like, greens are greens and I want to get
as many of these guys into me as possible and I love the winter time because I can do
just that and also because it’s so cold out, the plant makes additional sugars and
puts them into the leaves so they’re actually sweeter. So if you’re eating kale out of your summer
garden, you’re like, man that kale stuff John, that sucks, it tastes bad, I’m not going to
eat it. Right? Try it again, give it another chance and grow
it in your winter garden when it’s cold because this will make the sugar come out
and they’re going to taste so much better and I’m going to get you to be a lover of
kale, alright. So here we got the broccoli early dividend. Another thing I want to encouraged you guys
to do is to plant different varieties of the crops, right? I’m growing not just like all white cauliflower,
I got graffiti, I got purple, I got cheddar, I got a rainbow mix and the same with the
broccoli. I got the early dividend here, we got another
early dividend because I like my cauliflower like I like my women—early. No, wait, that didn’t make sense. I like the early broccoli so I have some broccoli
leaves sooner rather than later in the season. I got two six packs of those and I got some
English violet broccoli. Never seen this variety before, I’m glad they
have this as a start so I was able to buy it. I do want to say that I’m actually quite lucky
to have the availability of all these plants and all the unique and different varieties
because I know if you only have one nursery or something near you, you go to that nursery,
whatever they got, they got and that’s what you get. So I know some of you guys still buying Bonnie
plants from Home Depot and Lowe’s and all this stuff, I buy those when I don’t have
any other options but I prefer to go to a local nursery where I’ve gotten some of
these or the majority of these plants actually came from CPG plant nursery. If I remember, I’ll post a link down below. They’re in southern California. I basically buy around 500 plants this last
trip and this is the last major bunch that I will be planting out in the garden. I got some stragglers, like two more flats
left. But yeah, I’m glad that they really grow a
wide variety so you guys can have a nice selection of different plants and see which ones do
better, grow better for you and also which ones you like, are tastier for you. This one is actually called the broccolini
aspa brock. So I never grew this before, it’s going
to be fun to see how it does. And of course, along with my purple cauliflower,
I got some purple sprouting broccoli. I really like the foods of color and I want
to really encourage you guys to grow like purple colored foods. They’re the bomb. Alright. I think the last bunch—yeah I think this
is it. I got the broccoli cauliflower romanesco,
this is kind of a mixture between the two. so what’s going to happen is, I’m going
to go ahead and select, two flats of all these, maybe not take out the doubles. And then I’m going to plant like all these
intermixed in this bed here and I’m going to get probably planted out, get a good start
on it, plant a bunch out, and then I’m going to come back at you and show you guys how
I plant these guys and more importantly, the special fertilizer that I use to already take
the high levels of phytonutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals in these plants they
already produce to the next level. So as you guys can see, more than half the
bed planted out in this bed. I got basically five rows, one, two, three,
four, five, they are all offset, so they’re not even, they’re making a diamond pattern. Going down this direction between this plant
and this plant, there’s 14 inches and then going diagonally between plants, there’s
about 11 inches. So I kind of like this spacing, it just kind
of allows me to get more plants in the bed with you know, little bit more space between
them. Normally you would want to space your Brassica
plants every 12 inches or so. I like to kind of put them a little bit closer
so I can get more plants in the same space. In addition as you guys can see there’s
a lot of extra space in between the plants still. I’m going to go in and either probably seed
with some kind of intermediary plant in between while these guys get big so I can easily get—harvest
a radish, for example in between the plants and maybe I might do something like carrots
even, in between, some nice root vegetables in between, to maximize my space. I could put some kind of leafy green down
in the bottom, maybe some kind of minor’s lettuce. Better even, mosh or moshe. I think I’ll do that actually, I love mosh. But anyways, I got that planted out. What I thought I’d do next is actually share
with you guys how I’m planting these guys out… as you guys can see, I got all these
stakes so you know, the first step of clearing this bed—it had peppers in it so I clear
cut them down. I just cut to the stems and left all the root
matter underneath and I leave them there. That’s my new practice now, to encourage
more soil micro-biome and life in the soil. Unless they get in the way when I’m digging
my new planting holes, they stay in the ground and just get to rot in place. Actually, I’ve only ran into a few of them
through this process. That’s kind of cool. It saves me work from having to you know,
pull them up, shake them out, and compost them in my compost bin. They’re just going to go ahead and compost
in the bed where they lay. So as you guys can see, I basically put these
bamboo stakes and I actually do this elaborate setup of making as tying from each end to
the other end and making little sticks to like space out each plant at the appropriate
spacing. And you know it does take some time and this
is a way I’d like to garden, not saying you guys have to do this. I know a lot of you guys plant haphazardly
but I’m really here to produce the most amount of food in the smallest amount of space and
by being more methodical it allows me to do just that. So if you want to see actually that process,
be sure to check the link down below, if I remember, to a link of me planting this exact
bed out of peppers, the same peppers that I’ve clear cut, because I showed you guys
from like a roof shot, like how I plant all this out and the whole process I go through. Any case, once we got all the stakes in I
basically pull out one stake at a time and I basically take a bulb planter. And yes, I know I’m planting transplants,
starts and not bulbs, but I like the bulb planter because it allows me to minimally
disturb the soil. Most of you guys might dig a little shovel
or trowel and dig a little hole or even your hand but I like that this gets in there because
there’s just about the right size hole to plant from my jumbo six packs and everything
and I actually even have some electrical tape on here to denote how deep I need to go so
don’t go too deep. So just put that in there and spin this baby
around, go to my depth, I pull out a nice core fo soil that’s in there and then I
go to a bucket and I just tap it out and it’s empty, ready for the next one. Then I got a hole that’s all ready to be
planted out. So the next thing that I do is actually stock
that hole with more nutrients. The other step that I didn’t mention actually
is all this new layer on the top is all new compost mixture so I mix things like two different
kinds of worm castings, maybe three different kinds of compost, maybe three different kinds
of rock dusts, John and Bob’s soil products, all three different ones that I have, and
then also put in like, oh, some biochar, some insect frass, just a mixture of all the different
things I have laying around and mixed it all up. Top this whole bed off, got some coconut coyer
from the local coconut company, wonder soil. Yeah but anyways, top this all off, and so
that’s what adds fertility to my soil. In addition, all the other compost that’s
all in there that this bed is filled actually with doctor’s earth bagged soil which is
a good high quality product. This product I would recommend if you can’t
find bulk stuff near you. It may be still available at home depot, I
think they might be getting clearance out so it might be good to check your local home
depot and see if the stuff is on final clearance when it’s going to be dirt cheap and I’m
just going to load up if it is because I think they might be discontinuing it, I’m not sure. But anyways, yeah. Top that off. But even then, you know, I want to add further
fertility for my plants, especially my baby transplants as I plant them in so I add a
few things. The first thing is, add some of this stuff. This is the Dr. Earth’s life fertilizer
and this is an all purpose fertilizer. It’s good for fruits, vegetables, flowering
plants, shrubs, ground covers, and even your lawns. And I like that this stuff is actually pelatized. So I have had like the powder Dr. Earth stuff
but I find it gets very dusty very fast so I like basically just to stick my hand in
here and I just take a bunch out and just sprinkle a few bits into each planting hole. Alright? And that adds lots of different nutrients. This is a 5-5-5 fertilizer and lots of different
organic materials to add in but in addition it also contains non plant food ingredients
including many different kinds of beneficial bacteria and more importantly mycorrhizae,
humic acids, kelp, and all kinds of other nutrients for my baby plants to kind of get
them off to the right start. Now besides that stuff I add something else
and I actually have decanned another product which I will talk to you about in another
minute before I come back in this little bucket here which is actually the original one I
got last year and this is a western biotech solutions GTF glucose tolerance factor soil
conditioner—that’s what it says on the label but that’s not what’s in here. This is last year’s label. I’m just reusing a container and encourage
you guys always to reuse instead of recycle. It’s better. So what I do is I empty some soil conditioners
into here and this is what it looks like. It’s basically in saw dust… and I take
one scoop of this stuff and I put it in each hole. And the scoop size I’m using is a level scoop
size of one teaspoon. Now, why this step is important is because
this adds specific amounts of very essential trace materials into the planting hole, into
the soil, for the plants to absorb so that then they could hold onto those plants, digest
these in organic minerals, turn them into organic form so that when I eat the plants,
I could get these very important trace minerals that in my opinion and based on research I’ve
read will help keep me healthy and disease free. And that’s very important because most people
have no clue about this and I’m going to go into a segment at the end of this, even get
more into it, so after I add those two items to the planting hole, I’m ready to plant my
plant start. So what we got here is we got some red Russian
kale. How I’m doing this actually I’m planting in
rows but they’re diagonal rows so it’s going to look really cool. I got all red Russian kale in this side, this
row, got some English violet broccoli in the next row, got their lacinato or Tuscan kale
in the next row, like all the way down so when it’s done it’s going to look really
cool or when it’s growing. So what we’re going to do is we’re going
to go ahead and take one of these little heirloom red Russian kale plants, pop it out of the
cell, got really nice roots in there in the bottom and so what I generally do is I go
ahead and take an empty bucket. This is basically the soil I topped off my
bed with, I enriched it a little bit more, I’ll put this, I’ll go over here, I’ll
just you know, tease out the roots like I’m teasing out the hair, if you’re a girl in
the ‘80s. And we get them kind of hanging out a little
bit and then I put this guys, which is a shaker bottle which is once again also reused. Unscrew it and then I just shake a little
bit of this stuff on there while I’m like over my little bucket that has all my—the
stuff that I topped of the bed with. Once I shake that on there then I’ll go
very carefully to the planting hole, maybe I’ll put a little bit of the stuff in the
bucket in the planting hole and then I’ll drop these guys in there carefully. And then I’ll take my fingers and kind of
go around and take out the airspace because the jumbo six pack size is a little bit smaller
than the bulb planter so we’re kind of making sure all the soil is flushed near the bottom. And then we’re going to finally take like
a handful of this stuff on the top and just spread it on the top. Sometimes I’ll find on Brassica plants like
these guys, they start to pop out, so they can be planted a little bit deeper and that’s
what we did and that’s basically how I planted. Now you’re probably wondering, John, what’s
in this stuff right here? Let me go ahead and show ya. So this is a mixture of several different
items. I think I have like maybe—at least two thirds
of this shaker bottle is this stuff right here. It’s actually known as the mycorrhizae granular
mycorrhiza. So this has different kinds of endo and ecto
mycorrhiza, good for both vegetables and trees and I know what you’re thinking right now—John,
the Brassica family of plants they don’t like colonizing with the mycorrhiza. Well, that may be true but I’m also going
to be growing things in between these plants. Plus I just want them in my soil to hang out
for next time. And also the other thing is, as much as this
is two thirds of this shaker bottle, I got some other things in there, so the remaining
two thirds consist of a few things. Number one, the plant success siable premium
mycorrhiza innoculent with beneficial bacteria, seaweed, and humic acids so that also gets
the remaining one third in here. I think I like that mainly for the beneficial
bacteria. In addition I got the pure protein dry powder. Also part of this. Last two thirds. And of course I got the aqua sap. So I add these additional nutrients to really
give the plants boost so that they don’t have as much shell shock or root shock or
transplant shock once they’re planted back in. iv’e actually already planted all the lettuces
and a whole bunch of other stuff with the same mixture that I’ve been using for years
and I’ve always been tweaking it over the years, this is my latest mixture and they
always do really well. So yeah that’s how I plant them out. I guess next I need to actually plant the
rest of these out. Then we’re going to come back at you, and
let you guys know why this saw dust stuff here, these trace minerals are probably one
of the most important agents of fertility you guys could add to your garden and probably
aren’t. So as you guys can see me, behind me, I’ve
got this raised bed all planted out, 72 plants, took me several hours, that was like today’s
project today, the sun is going down, it’s getting kind of cold. I really dislike when the days get shorter
you know, and the sun goes down earlier. So it just encourages me to get up early,
get outside and do my gardening earlier before it gets too cold in the afternoon. Anyways, I got my gardening done for today. Last thing I got to do for this bit is put
a little fence around it because otherwise my dog gets up in there and digs and leaves
footprints and poops, so, I’ll do that after I shoot this video. But I want the come back at you, and let you
guys know what was that sawdust like powder fertilizer that I was putting in? And I got my new shipment in of that stuff
and what it is, it’s actually called the western biotech soil solutions. It says grow your own mineral supplements,
and this is the master gardener pack soul conditioner. This pack right here isn’t for the faint
of heart, right. This pack is like if you’re serious about
your health and growing high quality food. If you’re not, turn off this video now because
you can continue do your free gardening style, right? I mean I want to tell you guys really quick
why I’m so into gardening and growing food and growing not only just any old food but
the highest quality most nutritious food I possibly can. And that is basically because when I was in
my 20s, I had a life threatening illness known as spinal meningitis. I was hospitalized and my mom stayed by my
side the whole time I was hospitalized. I was taken into an intensive care unit, I
was passed out, I woke up in intensive care with all these IVs stuck inside me and you
know when you’re sick in the hospital, you ask the doctor one question, ehy doc, when
am I going to g et out of here? And he gave me the answer no one wants to
hear, no matter what age you’re at. I was just graduated from college. He said, you might not make it out of here. And I thought about it for a second like… I’m like, whoa, this is not a good situation. I might not make it out of here, he’s like
you have a viral version of the spinal meningitis and there is no medical treatment for you. And that’s not something anyone wants to
hear at any age. You know? And so that like, I was like, wow, this is
messed up, this is the last thing I’m going to see potentially, my life is inside this
hospital and not get to experience life, not to use my college degree to the benefit of
anybody. Or anything, or me, or anything. And so luckily, as you guys know, I made it
out of that situation but I could not stay through the medical system. I could only stay through higher powers and
that’s what I like to say—I was given a second chance and my second chance is in
my opinion, help thy fellow man. Promises, prayed when I was in the hospital
that if I make it out of there, I’m going to be a better person in this life and do
the best I can. So anyways, I made out of that situation and
when I was leaving I said doctor, hey doc, why did I get in this situation in the first
place? Like why was I sick and none of my college
buddies that I was playing broom ball with get sick? And he says, well you have what’s called
compliment immune deficiency which basically—basically, in his words he says you have a chronically
weakened immune system because of your genes. So he blamed it on my genes. And so all I knew after I left is that John,
you need to do something to make your genes stronger so that you don’t get sick again,
you don’t get in the hospital and the doctor is not telling you again in another point,
you might not make it out alive, because that’s not a fun place to be, right? The only thing I wanted when the doctor’s
told me that is I just wanted my health. I didn’t want a million dollars, I didn’t
want a billion dollars, I didn’t want to be president. I didn’t want anything except to have my
health because I almost lost it. And I think it’s really sad in this day
and age that we all take our health for granted. We all take being healthy for granted. I take being healthy for granted. I walk around without stomachaches, without
all these different aches and pains like my brother who is a couple years younger than
me, you know? And it’s only in times when I make a video
and really think about it that I really appreciate the health that I have. But you know the health that I have did not
happen to me haphazardly, right? I’ve been working very judiciously for the
last 21 years now on building my health to the next level. What’s in this box in my opinion can take
your health to the next level no matter where you’re at. So I learned at a young age that your health
is your greatest wealth and it’s not about making money in our world. It’s about having your life and not only
being healthy and living a long life but living a long, healthy productive life that you know,
you’re doing something worthy for worthy goals and making the planet a better place. A lot of people are not making the planet
a better place and so I want to do my part to make this planet better for the future
generations and my kids and their kids and their kids’ kids. So anyways, back to the soil solutions soul
conditioner and why I think this is revolutionary in fertilizers. Let’s go ahead and read the bottom—provide
your soil with proper bio available minerals needed to increase mineral uptake in the plants. So here’s the thing, as you guys know, you
know, I’ve put a lot of different nutrients in my soil, probably more than anybody I know
or have ever met. Whether that’s an overkill or I’m overdoing
it or I need to put that much stuff in—you know that’s up to debate but once again
this is my money, and gardening is my hobby, and I can spend my money however I like. My dad said when I was kid, John you can take
all your money and taking pennies and throw it off the golden gate bridge for all I care,
because he let us kids do with our money what we want. I believe by doing this, I’m making an investment. Not investment into the US treasury or the
Bank of America or anything but investment in my health, which is my greatest wealth
and the most—the thing that I have that is most dear and valuable to me! So I would encourage you guys, you know, to
make your health first and yeah some of these things that I do may cost a little money but
it’s going to grow a higher quality food which means you’re going to be a higher quality
person and you know, literally, in my opinion I’m buying myself out of getting sick in the
future and that is priceless because I don’t want to go through all those pains and all
those things that people go through when they’re really sick and in the hospital with cancer
and cancer is eating their body and I don’t even want to know how painful that can be,
right? And so up till now I’ve added things like
the rock dust and different kinds of rock dust, 5 different kinds of rock dust and different
kinds of rock dust with the trace minerals because I know that trace minerals are super
important. I put in soil humates, I had doctor Joel Wallack,
I’ll put a link below to that video if I remember, you know, who has done all kinds
of research on how important and vital trace minerals are to your health. And unfortunately with top soil degradation,
the standard farming practices of today even organic farming practices, they’re not replacing
the certain trace minerals in the soils like there should be. Furthermore, with soil contamination of certain
trace minerals, other trace minerals may not be absorbed properly and things may not work
in the system. So I try to bring my soil back into balance
and add some of the trace minerals into the soil and that’s what I do with the rock
dust. Rock dust is kind of like a shot gun, right. I shot gun all the different minerals and
I hope that my plants take the minerals they need to be healthy, plus I get to eat that
and be healthy. But still, it’s like playing poker. You’re leaving many things up to chance, right? And I don’t want to leave things up to chance
as much as I’m—you know I have to. I want to really gamble and pull that slot
machine lever when I know I’m going to win. Well how do you know you’re going to win? You can rig it. That’s what this stuff is, the soil conditioner
you know, you’re kind of rigging the system instead of putting in all kinds of rock dust
and hoping that certain trace minerals are uptake and when you eat those you’re going
to get those in you. The soil solution products, what they allow
you to do, they allow you to spoon feed the plants certain minerals that then it converts,
takes up, and then makes it by all available for us. Furthermore, aside from just the minerals
that’s taken up, because a plant may be healthier, it may be producing a different
kind of plant metabolites which are nutrients for us. So what I want to do now is actually open
up this box and show you guys what’s inside. Alright, in this box here, I’ve got some
cool stuff. We’ve got a whole bunch of stuff. We got mainly the soil conditioner pack right
here and in this pack there’s basically a couple bags, maybe I think like six bags
of this fertilizer stuff. And this is the emotional wellbeing formula
soil conditioner. So what this formula is, it’s specifically
formulated with certain trace minerals that has been shown in people to be maybe deficient
if you maybe don’t feel emotionally well, right? So you can flip this over and there’s a
total like list of all the different minerals in there. So there’s like, 36 grams of boron, 225
grams of calcium, 365 grams of magnesium, 360 milligrams of selenium, 3650 milligrams
of lithium, 100 grams of sulfur, and the pine shavings. And so here’s the thing. You’re thinking, John, I could get like you
know, boron from a supplement. Well, number one, the supplement, you know
what you could take boron and other trace mineral supplements, the absorption rate is
very low and that’s not how we’re supposed to get our minerals. We’re not supposed to be taking these mineral
supplements, we’re not supposed to be sucking on copper pennies to get our copper. We want to get copper from the foods we eat
and that’s how we were designed to do it. The problem is, especially if things like
boron which may be deficient in soils across the world is not in the soils, the food that’s
being grown in those soils will not have the boron in it. And so how do we know all these minerals are
really important—well, there’s this book that comes along with this pack. It’s actually minerals and the genetic code,
even if you’re not going to buy this pack, I would encourage you to go on Amazon and
pick up this book so you can learn about how important these trace minerals are if you
don’t believe me. It says that an exposition an analysis of
the doctor standard genetic period chart in the physical, chemical, and biological connection
by Charles Walters. But in here, he goes into all the different
minerals and how they’re important for different conditions and also you know, more importantly,
what specific plants take up these minerals. For example, iodine. Iodine in my opinion is a big deficiency these
days. Most people get it from eating some iodide
salt, but what if you don’t eat iodide salt because it’s that crap table salt that you
cut out your diet—oh, I eat sea salt, John. You’re not going to get enough iodine from
sea salt. Maybe you’re eating sea minerals but other
than that you know, things actually in here, it’s actually bladder wrack, it’s really
high in iodine, pistachios, you know, it’s significantly lower in iodine than the kelp
or bladder wrack. And then even going down from there, soy beans,
red seeder shoots, yeah, anyways. It goes over all the different plants rich
in iodine which is actually significantly lower than the seaweed so I just recommend
seaweed for that. But pistachios could have 51 parts per million
so we’re talking like parts per million the kelp has 54 hundred parts per million. And so the thing is this, we know that pistachios
can absorb the iodine but the problem is if there’s not iodine in the soils the pistachios
ain’t going to have it in there and this can be true for all minerals. So, that’s what this book goes over but
let’s get back to this right here. So you know certain plants will take up certain
trace minerals so you know they make recommendations on this formula. So for this formula, if you want to really
take up boron and get more boron in your diet, you want to grow things like strawberries,
lettuce, tomatoes, and cabbage. If you want to get more calcium, the tomatoes,
cauliflower, and dill will absorb more of the calcium. If you want to get the magnesium uptake, you
want to grow beans, oats, and spinach. If you want to get the selenium, selenium
is a very important trace mineral that I believe many people may be deficient in these days. You want to grow things like milk thistle,
lemongrass, and pumpkin. If you want to get lithium, lithium is an
essential nutrient, we want to grow thyme, beans, and lettuce, and if you want to get
sulfur, very important, cabbage and onions as well as the amazing tropical fruit named
durian will take up a lot of sulfur. I think also garlic, garlic also rich in sulfur. But anyways, that lets you know what plants
to get those trace minerals but then here it has basically the mineral function—boron,
calcium, magnesium, selenium, lithium. I could sit here, read all of it. I might read one for maybe the boron. Boron appears to affect calcium and magnesium
metabolism and membrane function that is essential for efficient absorption of calcium in the
body. It was found by the US Department of Agriculture
to significantly reduce the loss of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus in post-menopausal
women. It may also be helpful for ischemic heart
disease and other forms of cardiovascular disease. Boron deficiencies sign may be related to
the level of vitamin D and possibly other nutrients in the diet. Deficiency systems—osteoporosis and arthritis. So if you are deficient in certain trace minerals
you may be more likely to get diseases—they’ve done a lot of different studies regarding
that. So anyways this one is for the emotional well
being, so if you’re having emotional well being issues this is the one to get. Let’s see here. We’ve also got one for the GTF, glucose
tolerance factor. This is the one I used last year. If you want to learn significantly more than
what I’m talking about, these trace minerals than this episode, be sure to check that link
down below where I interviewed Robert Rissingham regarding these products that he came up with
and how he came up with it and why he came up with it—his parents actually had cancer,
so he had to come up with a way so they could get the very important trace minerals so that
they could overcome their cancer. I guess he wasn’t able to get to one of
his parents but he was able to save the other one as well as his wife’s parents. But this one is the glucose tolerance factor,
I’ve been using this, and this one has chromium, vanadium, molybdenum, zinc, sulfur, and the
pine shavings. You guys are like, try to get pregnant, you
guys can’t, right? Then maybe you want to try this one—fertility
and potency formula. Yeah, I want to be potent, man. You know what I mean by potent—does that
apply for women too? I think it’s mostly men. Chromium, potassium, iodide, calcium, magnese,
selenium, cobalt, sulfur, and pine shavings. Next one, this is the one actually I’ve
been using this year now, planting all my lettuce you can see behind me. With this formula, health and immune sstem
formula, this is probably the most important one for me because I did have an immune compromise,
I want to make sure my immune system is strong and it has the specific trace minerals to
build my immune system. This one has boron, potassium iodide, magnesium
silver, zinc, tin, and sulfur. Got another one here. This is probably the largest killers of Americans
in this day and age and people around the world is heart disease. This is heart, health, and cardiovascular
formula. This has calcium, magnesium, selenium, copper,
and sulfur. Then I got one left in here. This is an important one for many of you guys
maybe getting up there, I think my dad needs to get on this one. This is the memory formula. And this is if you want to enhance your memory,
maybe even things like certain diseases that you may lose your memory when you get older—magnesium,
sulfur, boron, cobalt, selenium, and yttrium. That’s an interesting one. When have you got your yttrium lately? Anyways, each one of these formulas is specifically
designed to support certain conditions so you can actually grow like your own medicine,
literally, your foods, your fruits and your vegetables will uptake these trace minerals
and you’ll get them when you eat the foods that you harvested. Now you might be thinking, john, why is all
this important man and how much is this stuff? Well, I’ll tell you this. With the discount code, GYG, you guys get
30 percent off to buy these guys and these guys ain’t cheap—this whole box, it’ll
set you back a pretty penny. It might be a paycheck or even two for some
of you guys. But each one of these bags after the discount
codes, it’ll be 100 dollars including shipping. But here’s the thing—this one bag of soil
conditioner for the heart health and cardiovascular formula is going to treat one cubic yard so
the rich man’s way to use this is actually to treat a yard, you know, of soil with this
and then put it in your garden and plant in it. Another way if you don’t want to, you know,
mix it into a whole yard is you could actually till it into a 10 by 10 raised bed, 3 inches
deep. You could also do it that way. The way I do it, the rich man’s way, is
spreading it out in your whole garden because you’re not planting in every area of your
garden unless you’re having a forest style garden. The poor man’s way, the way I’m doing it,
is actually ij ust take out one teaspoon of this stuff and then put it in each planting
hole. That’s why these bags are going to last
me for many years to come, and they’ll last. These will not evaporate or go bad or anything
like that. But yeah, that’s this stuff. Definitely really important. I want to exactly show why it’s so important
and why I like using this and this is going to blow your guys’ mind, so let me go ahead
and grab some paperwork. So here’s the thing, fruits and vegetables
and things, they’ll absorb these trace minerals if they’re in the soil. In my opinion, you know, soils are getting
devoid of minerals due to soil degradation due to unsustainable farming practices—yes,
even organic farming is in many cases is degrading the soil because they’re still tilling the
soil. So I like to do the no till method which preserves
some nutrients and then they’re bringing in compost but the compost is grown on last year’s
remnants and whatnot, and if the trace minerals aren’t in there, they’re not going to magically
appear unless you’re getting heavy metal trace minerals from things that are falling out
the sky that I won’t mention what they are because some of you guys believe in it and
some of you guys don’t, but anyways, the foods are deficient inn the minerals and if
you’re eating a mineral deficient diet, you may come down with health conditions. And that’s not fun. And I want to avoid these things and that’s
why I’m doing and adding all these things into my soil. Anyways, here’s a test, right. So this is the health and immune system formula,
the one actually I just used for my—the lettuce bed right over there. This is certified lab testing results for
boron. So boron may be a mineral you’re deficient
in. There’s many implications for boron, I could
read it on the back of the packages. I’ll send in a website for this company. You can read some of the different minerals,
what they do, and how they can enhance their health. The company basically drew in a control bed,
just regular soil. They grew vegetables. And then they added in the same soil blend,
they added their health formula, and then they drew the same vegetables. So here’s for example… they grew formula
grass and if you grew it in the health formula you could eat like one serving a week grass
and if you just grew it in the control soil, you’d have to eat one, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen servings of wheat grass. So you can have significantly more nutrition
in less volume of food. So for broccoli you could get the trace minerals
by eating one head you know, if you added the health formula instead of two heads for
not doing anything. And beans, it’s one serving of beans instead
of 3 servings of beans. So what’s the benefit to this. The benefit to this is actually you could
eat lower calories to get the same amount of trace minerals. So calories for the health formula, you could
eat 140 calories versus 413 calories. So you could eat significantly less calories
and calorie restriction has been the only thing that has been shown—proven to enhance
the longevity so now you can eat less calories but still maintain and get your nutrients. This is jus ton the boron, go onto the next
page where we talk about zinc. Zinc, another important trace mineral. Many friends of mine, whether they’re eating
a plant based diet or not are deficient in zinc. That’s because zinc is disappearing from
the soils and not being supplemented because standard agriculture is focused on 3 main
minerals putting in NPK, and they don’t care about anything else man, and they’re
growing these big giant heads of lettuce and things that taste like nothing that don’t
give you the nutrients that your body really requires to function and don’t get started
if you’re eating processed foods, man. Processed foods, that’s some of the cheapest
stuff you could get and they process a lot of the nutrients out of it. Anyways, for example, zinc… wheat grass
was the same whether they added the zinc or not but for example, the lettuce you know,
you could eat one serving instead of two servings and the calories was 99 versus 104 so that’s
not like a big savings for zinc, you know, with this formula versus the control. The control had good zinc levels in there. But what’s even more fun is when we get
into these guys. This is the silver and the tin. So for example, on silver, for lettuce, you
could either eat one head if you had this mineral formula added to your soil and actually
this is the same one I added to my lettuce bed over there—oh my light came on, it’s
getting dark. Or you could eat eight servings of lettuce
to get the same amount of the trace minerals by using the health formula. And once again, the calorie difference, 140
versus 377, that’s like almost two and a half, three times difference. So on tin, on the health formula, versus the
control you could eat one serving of radishes or you’ll have to eat 52 servings of radishes
grown in control. I don’t know, that’s a lot of radish to
eat, right? My goal these days is to eat the minimum amount
of food and get the maximum amount of nutrients. Not only the trace minerals but also the plant
phytochemical sand phytonutrients and vitamins and minerals. And so that’s literally what this fertilizer
allows me to do, allows me to really maximize the trace minerals so that I don’t have
to buy a supplement that maybe isn’t easily absorbed. Of course this is advanced topic, advanced
credit only if you’re really serious about your health. Maybe you have a condition, maybe you have
diabetes or something, right? You might want to try that glucose tolerance
factor—try it. Right, it’s 100 bucks, right, you guys are
buying insulin or whatever and if it wasn’t covered by insurance, it’d cost well more
than 100 bucks. Like drugs, they’re really expensive. Invested in some fertilizer. It’s going to last you a long time if you
just scoop it out by the teaspoon like I’m doing, right. It’s a good investment. It’s going to last. Maybe you’ll see a difference in your diet. Of course growing high mineral food is not
the answer to all the world’s health challenges, but in my opinion, it’s the part of the
answer. Trace minerals are definitely indicated in
many different disease situations and I have seen diseases get reversed by supplementing
with foods rich in trace minerals. It may just be eating more fruits and vegetables. That may do it for you. It may be adding in things like kelp powders
and seaweed powders and other kinds of plant available trace minerals into you. It might be adding in some of these vegetables
that are grown in the soil solution products to basically up the levels of the certain
trace minerals you need to be healthy, to get rid of your disease conditions. Of course, also, going along with that, I
always want to encourage you guys to eat a healthy diet that’s focused around plants,
right? Eat mostly what you grow in your garden and
other plant foods. And if you got to eat other junk foods and
processed foods and animal foods, eat those in small quantities, right? I don’t really care what you guys eat but
I want you guys to eat a lot of plants, especially the ones you grow in high quality soil and
also when you’re spending a 100 dollars per bag like, I’ve just put in my garden. You’re going to want to eat your food because
you don’t want that very nutritious food to go to waste. I’d love to give my food to my family, my
parents, my brother, my friends that you know, so they can have some high quality food, right,
and maybe they could be healthy because of it. You know, Robert, the owner and CEO of this
company, has research that shows there’s higher uptakes in his products you know that
he’s grown and the fertilizer products that he’s used to grow food is of higher quality. Now here’s the thing—if you don’t want
to invest in a fertilizer which is by far the cheapest way to do this and as time goes
on, since he’s a new company hopefully he’s going to get these products into WalMart one
of these days and it’s going to be super cheap to do it on mass scale—he does all
these batches by hand and stuff, lots of labor, he uses US labor, pays a fair wage up in Wyoming
or wherever he’s at. If you don’t want to buy the fertilizer
and grow out with it, what he has is these guys—he sent me a couple of samples here. He has his wheatgrass powder. So this is wheatgrass powder grown in the
glucose tolerance factory. Basically he took his product, grew wheatgrass
with it, he got the wheatgrass and then he powdered it up and put it in a bottle for
you so you guys could take it. This is the glucose tolerance factor—I guess
he sent me three of those. So this is for people that may have things
like diabetes, this may help them with their blood sugar issues to need less insulin or
maybe even potentially get off it. He has been getting testimonials from people
you know, on just literally changing and adding in some super mineral rich, certain mineral
rich enhanced foods to get better. I think this is really where drugs will go
in the future, instead of taking a drug to cure your diabetes or unfortunately, most
drugs do not cure anything in my opinion. They are a crutch. My dad is on blood pressure lowering medications—it
didn’t just fix him, he has to take that for the rest of his life, against my wishes,
right? Maybe if he grew in the heart health fertilizer,
maybe he’d get off his drugs and not have to keep buying drugs that basically don’t
do anything to fix the problem, they’re a band-aid or a temporary crutch and an to
a full solution whereas I believe these produces—if every drug store sold food. If you could go to the grocery store and buy
food grown in these mineral products, people could have really nutritious food and maybe
we wouldn’t have any diseases in our world today! This is, I think, where we really need to
go. These fertilizer products need to go out to
big industries and people need to start going, especially in the cannabis industry—medicinal
cannabis. Could be grown with some of these trace minerals
to get higher uptakes so that when the users of the cannabis, hopefully they’re juicing
it or using it in its raw state, it’s going to get better results because they’re also
going to get not only the cannabanoids but also higher levels of trace minerals that
have been implicated in certain diseases, right? So the future is great, I’m glad to be living
in this time now, there’s so much new information, technology, and things going on in the world
so that you guys can get healthier one step at a time if you guys want to. And that’s what I simply do. a lot of you guys are going to poopoo this—John
that stuff is too expensive! Fine! You can garden on the cheap, growing your
own food is still better than the store, right? My goal, because I almost lost my life, is
to grow the highest quality food so I don’t end up back at the hospital again and being
out of control. I want to control my ultimate destiny and
my ultimate health and I believe this is a product that can do it for you guys. So if you guys want to learn more about these
products here, you want to visit the website WesternEnvironmentalServices.com, I’ll also
put the links down below this video so you guys can check it out. Also be sure to use the discount code GYG. This is going to be for a limited time only
and that’s going to get you guys 30 percent off these soil conditioners or even if you
don’t want to grow your stuff in the soil conditioners, the cheapest way, this bag,
if you’re just dolling it out a teaspoon at a time with your transplants or even in your
plant starts or when you’re moving into pots or if you’re just growing into pots, you
can put the teaspoon in the plants or around the seed, that’s going to definitely get
some uptake. Another thing I forgot to mention is that
once you treat your soil it’s going to last for 4 years so you don’t have to re-add
this stuff to your soil for another 4 years but if it’s in the bag it’s probably going
to literally last forever. The minerals aren’t going to just evaporate,
so, yes, definitely an investment to make. If you don’t want to use this stuff, of
course a discount code will also work for the different powders that in my opinion are
actually quite expensive. Definitely pays money in this case to buy
the fertilizer products, grow your own food, and actually take your food and dehydrate
it into your own patterns so you could eat it in the winter and in times when you’re
not able to eat the healthiest food out of your own garden. That’s pretty much my episode for today. I didn’t eat lunch because I had to work
through lunch to get this planted, make this video for you guys so I’m going to go in and
eat lunch at dinner time and then I’ll eat dinner later. Anyways if you guys enjoyed this episode,
learning about the trace minerals and the importance of them, I also want to encourage
you guys to go to the website down below to learn about the trace minerals and why they
are so important and also link to a database that talks about mineral deficiencies and
what challenges, the health challenges you may see because of that. I mean, this is new, evolving research and
I believe every place that has like a health facility retreat center that’s growing food
should be using these, especially with people for certain conditions because it’s only
going to in my opinion up the level of healing and success for people around the world. So yeah, anyways, if you enjoyed this episode,
please give me a thumbs up. I’ll try to get out to Robert’s place
and see how he’s growing it, what he’s doing, make a full video there, if I get a
thousand thumbs ups. I’ll go out to his place in Wyoming, hopefully
in the summertime because I’m going to freeze my butt off in the winter. Also make sure to check the links down below
in the description. I have links in the original video I did with
Robert, other videos I talked about in this episode, also the link to the place to buy
the stuff. Also be sure to click that subscribe button
right down below to be notified of my new and upcoming episodes. I have new and upcoming episodes every three
to four days on this channel. You never know where I’m going to pop up,
what you’ll be learning on my YouTube channel. Finally, be sure to check out my past episodes. My past episodes are a wealth of knowledge. I have over 1200 episodes now at this point
teaching you guys all aspects on how to grow the highest quality food on the planet. So once again, my name is John Kohler with
GrowingYourGreens.com. we’ll see you next time. And until then, remember, keep on growing.

  1. Thank you, John, for sharing such a personal part of your story. I had wondered how you came to be such an avid organic gardener, and so passionate about sharing what you know with the world, and now I know. Bless you, sir.

  2. I'm no one, but in my opinion you are making good use of your second chance. I was just telling my spouse earlier today what a good person you are and how your videos encourage me to be a better person. Thank you for taking so much time to help us improve our lives.

  3. Awesome video. You take it to the next level by explaining the need for soil conditioner and telling your own story of survival. You were spared for a reason – to educate and inspire people to grow their own health. My little cousin died suddenly from spinal meningitis in 1960 at age 3 so you were very lucky. As far as the cost of the soil additives, you do point out that you use sparingly and the investment lasts several years so it's worth the effort to make sure you are getting the maximum nutrition from your garden no matter how small. I have bitten into store-bought fruits and vegetables that had no flavor and thrown them out, so I know the quality isn't there. Thank you for your hard work in bringing us this information, and God bless you.

  4. Love your work. You are such an encouragement. My best to you. I am too poor to buy supplements for my soil so I use old peelings and veggie scraps and mix it with the dirt. I got the most amazing black soil out of it and people were asking me where I got it. When I told them it only took me six months to make it they nearly fell over. (Carrrot juice pulp from the juicer) So I grew hundreds of babies from seed in it then had to move but three farms made out like bandits.

  5. Thanks John for Robert's update on the formulas. Last year I had purchased the GTF. Now with the other 5 formulas completed, I just ordered 3 new formulas. Robert was kind to take the time and answered my questions. The benefits of the minerals in one system from the plants has great value and many possibilities for prevention. The 30 per cent and free shipping was very helpful. Thank you John and Robert.

  6. love it keep it up improving lives for the better:) thanks for giving back all the good info subscribe for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I understand that this is a crop, so is cultivated, but what do the scientists add to make a cauliflower purple? Do you have any idea?

  8. God bless you John. I loved this video. I also have a genes problem, mine is with my blood, in that I can and have thrown blood clots into my lungs. With a massive PE in 2010, The Doctors told me with the damage in my lungs they only ever see in an autopsy. And that I am of a 1% that lived. lol I made it in a 1% er club.  I was told if I am unlucky ill get 3 to 5 years and if I am lucky ill get 7 to 10 years to live. After open lung surgery to remove some of the bigger clots in 2012 I am still left with the same condition as before the surgery. Working on year 6 now and take life one day at a time. I too have loved to garden all my life. And still garden but, I am slow and it takes a long time with many breaks to get my planting done. Can you recommend any garden foods for better LUNG health. Thank you, my wife and I love your videos, you are better the any show on TV. Thanks

  9. I cut my pepper plants just above the soil , and some of them start growing back in the spring- and they get huge and productive because they've already got an established root system. The freeze can kill them but a few handfuls of wood chips over that stem can insulate it enough to allow survival into spring.

  10. John, me thinks it is time for you to visit New England / Maine & discover the joys of growing gardens near the sea… Life is waaay too easy for you. :smirk: Love you channel!

  11. You are so lucky.  I live in the biggest little town in Tennessee…. no choices, Bonnie is just about the only things we get…

  12. thank you john you are changing our lives…I almost died ..now when people see me coming they know they are going to hear about something healthy!!!! LUV LUV THIS CHANNEL

  13. Love you John, thank you for all that you do. I'm learning so much about how to do better gardening.
    I am back on raw for a month now. My partner has almost healed his diabetes going vegan but still eating some cooked and trying to fight cravings to stay on raw. lHe is off ALL his diabetes meds now except the thyroid, including a blood thinner he was on due to a clot that went through his lung but luckily did not reach his heart. My partner and I also take the best medicinal herbs to heal our kidneys and adrenals. I have a cyst in my spine so I decided cooked food and sugar was not going to get that out of there although I was swinging back and forth from vegetarian to vegan for a number of years since 2008, but so much of it was cooked. I feel great again and most pain and inflammation gone. I eat only raw fruits and vegetables. Thank you for helping others to know the Truth.
    My partner built greenhouse canopies over my raised beds to keep the chemtrails out of my plants and soil. All I want to get now is a filter for my hose so I can give my plants better water.

  14. Wow John, this ends up being a very deep, from the heart video. Your​ passion as well as emotion are clearly evident.

  15. Dang John you reminded me I STILL want to try "Collard Greens" , traditional , Southern USA style but WITHOUT the pork , man !!! hahahahaha !!!!! .. … I'm going to have to try preparing them on my own. EVEN the restaurant in my town I researched prepares them with pork. … Oh well "Lazy" doesnt get you a preferred result right. ~ Cheers ~ Reverend Shane

  16. Thank you for yet another super informative video! I've been living on homegrown organic food all my life and therefore I'm probably healthy. And although I've never as been sick as you were, I so appreciate my health and put all my money into enhancing the soil I'm growing my food in. Everything you said in this video is true! We live in Spain, maybe I can get the the trace mineral products you mentioned shipped over, but usually it is difficult. So to wrap my comment up: We do NOT use doctors, dentists, vets, hospitals and pharmacies and instead put all the money we can spare into improving our gardening soil. We have no pests on our plants and most of our plants grow to a healthy size, some even more, but I still feel we could do better. Every year. So thank you again for this great video and in an emotional way, it helped me so much, because all my life I was laughed at, bullied and ridiculed because of my healthy lifestyle. Sad also to say that many of those bullies are very sick these day, some even don't live anymore.

  17. 9 months plant based (2 of those months as a full vegan!!) lost 52lbs thus far & loving everything about this lifestyle, just made me a batch of cashew cheese (roasted red pepper,sea salt,roasted garlic & nutritional yeast) YU-MMYYYY!! This TRULY is a healthy,nutrition filled, anti cancer & chronic disease lifestyle!! (Kratom for occasional pain remedies/blown discs in back (no more pain med's /HOPEFULLY EVER AGAIN!!

  18. Glad you made it John, the world would be a poorer place without you. Thank you for sharing that part of your life with us. I can see why you are so into growing your own food and making sure you eat healthy. You have become so much a part of my life since I found your channel. Your videos are a big part of my day, thank you. I have been raising worms and composting for years, after all, you can't keep taking out of the soil without putting something back. I can't keep up with everything you pass on to us but if I need to know anything I can go back to your videos and watch it again to refresh my memory. Thanks again, bless you and good health.

  19. Yes John, thumbs up and you were given a second chance and did not disappoint. Hats off to you and your health. I'm addicted to your videos because you inspire me to eat better plant better to be a healthier me. Thank You and KEEP INSPIRING US 🌱🍃🌺🐚🌻🐝🌍🤗

  20. John is one of those people whom I appreciate the most!!! All the best to him and so many people genuinely love him! I want to buy estate close to forest with huge trees and river, because I believe forest can provide the most valuable materials for the garden. If trees are huge, tall, very healthy and survived numerous years, that means, forest got all the best materials, like twigs, leaves, weeds, and why weeds are so damn strong with the roots deeply spread in soil which makes them impossible to dig out, because like those trees they take all the minerals and trace minerals in nature, broken down by micro organisms, bacterias, fungus, etc. I believe that by collecting materials in the wild nature, making composts like John does, adding coffee grounds, egg shells for calcium (though I never eat eggs myself), leaf mold, worm rich soil and wood chips will provide even richer soil than sold organic solutions and products in bags. Anyway, they are still super, like mycorrhizae, just not better than wild nature…….

  21. CELERY is the only NATURAL STATIN found in our foods….STATINS relax the MUSCLES around the veins and arterties. allowing more blood through………so a stalk a day to lower blood pressure and get off of the man made statins….they prescribe CELERY A SA MEDICINE IN INDIA……

  22. Your channel has veen very inspiring for me. I had a similar life changing health issue. Dr said slow motion suicide is where I was at. Because of you I now juice my fruits and veggies I feel amazing. More energy than I ever got from a redbull or rockstar. I still eat chicken and beef but not as often. I'm basically a vegetarian .i dont like how meat makes me feel. I have almost 2/3 acre and plan on using it all next season. Any tips on bed prep? Thinking eden style of gardening.

  23. Hi John, I am a great fan of your highly informative movies. I'm going trough them one at a time. Thanks!!
    Q: Where did you get the original soil for your 4X16X2? from. Please point me to the movie you explain that part.

  24. Youre a righteous dude John. Your videos are so compact with information. Im gonna make a monument in your honor someday. Thank you for all youve taught me so far. Keep it groovin brother 🙂

  25. I have never ever had ANY luck with broccoli till we moved north to Mohave County AZ. We lived in LaPaz county for 20 years and it just got too hot there. There may have been other factors like the local farms spraying. Anyway , last week I harvested and ate it fresh for the first time ever straight from my garden and harvested 2 of the leaves as well. Cooked within 10 minutes after picking… Wow what a difference from store bought! The flavor was mild and almost tasted like asparagus! Now that I know it does well here as a winter crop I will definitely plant more. It will probably grow in the spring as well and when it goes to seed in the spring our bees will benefit too. My new garden is almost 1 year old now. I built it from the ground up on part of our driveway.

  26. Try eating wild edible plants. I traveled 20 years on horseback and most of the time I was in the wilderness living off the land. I spent a lifetime mastering the use of plants for food and medicine. These plants grow where they are intended, not put there by man. now i've settled down and going to garden. so I'll look into this soil conditioner. The soil where I live is amazing. My house is over 100 years old with old overgrown gardens. lots of worms in the ​deep black soil.

  27. very rich in contented here. I believe the next step would be to take the plants grown in these treated soils for a complete controlled test for the said nutrients.
    he's spot on for plants only being able to uptake what's in the soil. the microbes and bacteria are the key between that allows uptake up these nutrients and minerals. soil science and the human biome are the future of medicine. actually it's been this way from the beginning but it's left out of the scriptures due to corruption and opposing ideals on the topic. like the man who goes to the dr to get over copd but hasn't quit smoking. or the violent replete offender that seeks forgiveness. we are told that we all deserve good health and liberation. to have all the secretes shared and be taught how to implement these ways into our loves. it's just not the way it is. and for good reason. I too once believed this as John did. what he's not telling you is for good reason. be kind, work hard to improve the planet and its inhabitants and you shall be rewarded. it's not enough to say you care. it's not enough to take sides on things that matter to humanity. you have to become a catalyst for change to be given true health and longevity. there are to many people in this world that only take and don't care to help anyone but themselves. may their soils rest in peace… lol
    great work John, God bless. 🙏🏻

  31. Ty for this video. A few yrs ago I started gardening because I do not want cancer again. I need to build my immune system & rid my body of the chemo & radiation that I consumed at 35. One thing I know is that stage 4 cancer is not the way that I want to go. I'm watching your videos in hopes to get more tips from you. Ty again 🙂

  32. Not to burst anyone’s bubble butt boron well just say read it for yourself Amorphous boron is used as a rocket fuel igniter and in pyrotechnic flares. It gives the flares a distinctive green colour. The most important compounds of boron are boric (or boracic) acid, borax (sodium borate) and boric oxide. These can be found in eye drops, mild antiseptics, washing powders and tile glazes.

  42. Dude you're the coolest. No wonder you're so passionate about gardening. I feel the same. I'm wondering if there is a corresponding video where you built those gorgeous beds . I can't tell if they're made of concrete blocks or wood? Love your videos! Thank you.

  43. For broccoli, we also thinly slice and roast the stalk. I got tired of throwing it out, so I found a recipe, and we do that now. Kids and husband scarf them up!

  44. Hi John. You and Terry Wahls have showed me why I have MS and how to regain my health. MS is no fun, it has been a real struggle but my aquaponics will be done later today. plan is to harvest 10 lettuce a day and 1 fish a month. my wicking beds are incredible. I would like to Say thank you, and your welcome for a visit for a salad anytime. give me 6 months. One love. Chris, Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean.

  45. If he really ate those foods as often as he claims then why is he so fat and out of shape in all of his videos 🤔🤔😂

  46. This is how I cured Endometriosis the worst case, the crippling kind. Took my healing plant tinctures, daily CBD & THC intake, eating fresh whole foods, drinking cold press juices, gluten free, soy free, processed food free, and drinking only clean water -including showering with a water shower filter. I cured a disease. I can have children now -ovulating regularly -PAIN FREE. This disease affects more than 200 Million women around the world and the cure is eating a plant based diet. I used to get sick every month including several fevers a year, now i NEVER get sick.
