I have just completed construction on a massive pharmaceutical factory in my own back yard. I'm not making this up. This is absolutely true. Right now, this factory is turning out pharmaceuticals that prevent prostate cancer, nervous system degeneration, birth defects and Alzheimer's disease. There is one that helps lower bad cholesterol and one that protects the eye from macular degeneration. I have a pharmaceutical that is antibacterial, antifungal and excellent for skin. I have another that's antibacterial and antifungal and is an excellent first-aid product. I've got one that increases the oxygenation of blood cells in the blood stream and another that reduces the stickiness of blood platelets to help prevent strokes and heart attacks. I have a pharmaceutical that prevents the buildup of plaque in the arteries. I have all these pharmaceuticals -- including one that helps regulate blood sugar -- in my back yard right now. Best of all, these pharmaceuticals have no negative side effects.

Self-constructing pharmaceuticals

You might wonder how I got the permit to build a pharmaceutical factory in my own back yard or how I got the money to do it, because you would think these are fairly expensive to build, especially when you are producing multiple lines of pharmaceuticals. How did I get the money to do this? How did I get the materials do to it? Well, I've got to tell you that I took some shortcuts. In fact, all the materials I needed for this entire factory fit in one pocket.

That's right. I took these materials out of my pocket. I buried them in the dirt, and I added some water. Pretty soon, this pharmaceutical factory began constructing itself. I was utterly amazed. Each and every day, I went out into my back yard and watched it, and this factory began to erect its own infrastructure.

It began to build solar panels and started collecting energy from the sun and using that to power itself. It built a system of water reclamation, and it began pulling water out of the ground and recycling that for its own use. It built its own simple nervous system, so it can communicate and make sure it building itself according to the right blueprints.

Then it began pulling molecules out of the air. This is absolutely true. This whole factory began grabbing carbon molecules right out of the air and combining them with certain elements pulled out of the ground. With the energy provided by the solar rays, it could actually build physical structures. These were built rather quickly and required no effort on my part whatsoever. After simply waiting 90 or 120 days, depending on the pharmaceutical, I could go out there and just pick them with my bar hands, then ingest their medicine to experience the healing benefits. And that's exactly what I have been doing.

Today I picked myself some pharmaceuticals that other people call blueberries, which lower bad cholesterol even better than statin drugs and without any negative side effects. I also harvested some corn silk, which is a great pharmaceutical, and I boiled it in some water and drank the tea. This corn silk tea destroys kidney stones.

What's really amazing about this pharmaceutical factory is that it is the same factory that nature has been building for literally millions of years on planet Earth. It's a factory that each and every person can construct on their own with the help of nature, through the miracle of seeds and a little bit of sunlight, air, water and nutrients. This is all it takes to produce these amazing pharmaceuticals that have well-documented, positive health effects on the human body. If you're just trying to treat a symptom, you can use these pharmaceuticals to treat that system. If you want to have a long, healthy life, free of symptoms and disease, then you can use these pharmaceuticals on a daily basis to prevent chronic disease.

Grow your own medicine right in your back yard

Now why do I call them pharmaceuticals, when I am obviously talking about foods and herbs? Because this is what the term "pharmaceutical" originally meant -- medicine from plants. The history of medicine on this planet is actually based in botany (the study of plants).

One hundred years ago, any good doctor would have studied botany, and he or she would have understood the medicinal uses of plants. He or she would have been taught how to use plants, not only to treat symptoms of disease, but also to prevent chronic disease. It was Hippocrates who said, "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." This is what I am talking about when I say I grow my own medicine in my back yard. Frankly, these are the only pharmaceuticals we ever need.

We do not need any synthesized drugs on this planet. We really don't. Sometimes they can serve a purpose for an acute symptom, and there are cases where pain management certainly is convenient. But what we see in conventional medicine today are dangerous pharmaceuticals that essentially hijack the body's chemistry. These are not really useful, in my opinion, except for generating obscene profits for drug companies.

These are just toxic drugs, synthesized drugs, built in very expensive, man-made pharmaceutical factories designed primarily to make money. That's really what they're all about. In fact, some of these companies even go so far as to invent their own diseases, just to sell people drugs. These include diseases like Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, which allows drug companies to sell more mind-altering chemicals to children. These drug companies can create a new disease out of thin air, and come up with some synthesized chemicals that people will buy and use for years and years while generating tremendous profits for the company.

However, the reality of all of this is that we can grow our own pharmaceuticals, our own medicines and our own foods. If we don't have time to grow them, we can acquire them at the grocery store. The grocery store can be a place of great disease, or great healing, depending on what you buy. If you spend most of your time in the fresh produce section of the grocery store, or the natural foods section, then it can be a place of tremendous healing. You can find foods and herbs there that not only treat many chronic diseases, but also prevent them.

I've already mentioned some of these healing foods, like corn silk. Most people buy corn and then throw away the corn silk, thinking, "Oh well, that's not going to be any good. It's just garbage. I'll throw it away." Keep it instead, and boil the corn silk and drink that tea. That's what American Indians did. They knew how to use plants medicinally, whether they were plants from the desert, plains, forest or mountains. They knew what plants to look for in their local region and how to use them to encourage a healing response.

Start your own garden for the freshest, healthiest pharmaceuticals possible

I encourage you to learn more about how you can grow your own pharmaceuticals. I'm a huge proponent of gardening. I believe if we can get foods right off the vine, then they can impart tremendous health benefits to us, above and beyond just buying fresh foods at the grocery store.

Unfortunately, a lot of things about groceries are quite deceptive. For example, I've seen tomatoes sold, attached to a part of the vine, that say "vine-ripened tomatoes." Well, this sounds healthy, but, in reality, they are not ripened on the vine. They are picked green. Exposing them to ethylene gas ripens them and turns them red when they are ready to be put out on the store shelves. Ethylene gas is used to ripen tomatoes, bananas and other fruits and vegetables, so grocery stores can be quite deceptive, and often fruits and vegetables aren't really fresh. If you buy a peach, for example, it is usually as hard as a rock. That's not how peaches are in the real world, fresh off the tree.

I realize that a lot of people live in apartments, and they don't necessarily have a plot of land, but there are some foods, such as culinary herbs, that you can grow in pots on the windowsill. This is not ideal, but it can get you by. However, if you do have a yard -- even a small yard -- or even if you live in the desert or in the high mountains in a very cold climate, you can grow something, and I encourage you to experiment. You can, with a pocketful of seeds, grow your own pharmaceutical factory that will produce these nutrients for you, day after day, year after year, at little or no cost.

It truly astounds me that people will pay money for pharmaceuticals when they can grow them at practically no cost. The ones you grow won't kill you, by the way, which is what many synthesized pharmaceuticals will do. We've seen how many people are killed each year by prescription drugs. We know they cause heart attacks, strokes, mental confusion, muscle pain, muscle-wasting disease and birth defects. There is a very long list of scary disorders, diseases and events caused by prescription drugs, but fresh produce will cause none of those.

In fact, fresh fruits and vegetables will prevent and even help reverse most chronic diseases. Foods will nourish your body, yet they are medicinal at the same time. All of the berries -- including blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, blackberries and strawberries -- are powerful medicines, especially the small, potent berries like blueberries and cranberries. They are packed with antioxidants and other vital nutrients that can help prevent and even reverse chronic disease in the human body.

Now, as a proponent of gardening, I am always looking for ways to make gardening easier. I've experimented with hydroponic, aeroponic and self-watering growth systems. None of these systems are very easy to use yet, and they can involve a lot of up-front cost, but stick around, because I think there are some interesting improvements in gardening technology coming down the line. Soon, we will see some new products that make it more simple and convenient for people to grow their own foods, right in their own kitchens.

In today's busy world, the easier we can make growing foods, the more people will get involved. Most people are busy. You've got a job, and maybe kids, too. You've got this 12-hour day of work, and then maybe another four to six hours of family obligations, and you just don't have time to sit around in the dirt and do a bunch of gardening, weed pulling, soil analysis and watering. If we could make it really easy, then people would be able to grow their own foods and medicines with much greater convenience.

Western medicine doesn't understand back yard pharmaceuticals

Now, some people in organized medicine -- and certainly those in the pharmaceutical world -- think that growing your own medicines is ludicrous. They don't even believe that foods have anything to do with health. That's how far behind they are.

The idea that people can grow their own foods in order to treat or prevent disease is completely foreign to Western medical authorities. Even those who acknowledge that berries, seeds and plants contain certain vital nutrients with active chemical constituents might say, "Well, those aren't standardized, so how do you know how much you're getting? You can't eat that in doses. You don't know how much is in there. You have to standardize all the herbs. You have to extract everything and standardize it. Otherwise, you don't know what you're dealing with." I completely disagree.

Standardizing herbs, foods and vital nutrients is foolish. It is losing out on all of the wisdom of nature. In nature, plants are naturally varied. One orange does not have the same exact vitamin C content as another orange, even if they're from the same tree. Two different berries from the same berry plant have a different chemical makeup. In nature, things are varied, and the way we are supposed to interact with nature is to eat a varied diet.

This is a protection mechanism. It makes sure that we don't get too much of one particular phytonutrient, mineral or phytochemical while simultaneously we get a broad spectrum of everything we need. That's balanced. We don't have to be precise about every phytonutrient. We just have to trust in nature and trust in the fact that we are supposed to eat berries, roots, vegetables, nuts and seeds. All we have to do is trust in the process of being a human being that developed in harmony with nature.

We evolved in this natural environment and these are the foods that have been available to our ancestors for hundreds of thousands of years. They didn't have to be standardized; no one went up to an orange tree and found the nutrition facts labeled and said, "How much vitamin C, calories, sugars, carbohydrates and fiber does this orange have?" They just pulled it off the tree and ate it, and that's essentially all you need to do for balanced nutrition. Trust in nature.

Your body was designed to survive and thrive in the natural environment; otherwise, you wouldn't even exist today. You wouldn't be here. Nature knows best. Modern medicine has only been around for maybe 50 years, depending how you define "modern." It's just a blink of an eye in the scope of human history and human evolution. We are advanced beings, and we evolved through a system of natural foods, natural energy sources and highly nutritious substances in our environment that we are supposed to ingest. The closest that you can get to that today is by growing your own foods (building your own pharmaceutical factory) in your back yard.

Cheap, commercially-available pharmaceutical factories

What's really fun about all of this is that you can go to practically any home store out there -- Home Depot, Target or Lowe's -- and buy these miniature pharmaceutical factories in envelopes, so all you do is add water and they build themselves. It's really amazing; for just a couple of dollars, you can buy a handful of tiny little pharmaceutical factories, and inside each one, they have their own blueprints for how to build themselves and when to erect the solar panels (which are the leaves, of course).

They know what to do, when to do it and how to produce pharmaceuticals. They know how to convert all the nutrients into medicines. They do that, and they don't charge you a patent royalty. That's right; you can grow them and benefit from them and take these medicines, and these plants don't ask you for any money. Nature doesn't require a down payment. You don't have to file with your health insurance company to be reimbursed for eating berries. Nature gives to you freely, unlike organized medicine, which wants something from you -- usually your money.

Invoke nature. Go out and get yourself some pharmaceutical factories. Add some water. Watch them grow. Become skilled in the art of growing nature's pharmaceutical factories. Get to know these plants and understand how they grow and what their life cycles are like. Learn how seasons and soil nutrients affect them. Grow one in some sand and another in dark rich soil, and look at the difference. This will teach you some important things.

We can learn a lot about our own health by watching these plants grow and thrive. Plants are highly complex living systems and, in my opinion, quite miraculous. In fact, they are very impressive and humbling to me. I'm far more impressed by what a single carrot seed can do than what an entire multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company can do. That entire company cannot recreate what's in that one carrot, from that tiny seed, barely larger than a piece of dust.

That one seed has all the wisdom of millions of years built into it. It has its own blueprint. It knows how to live in balance and harmony with the environment and how to produce these human foods. That is all contained in that one tiny seed, and you can unleash it by just tossing it in the ground and watering it from time to time. That's amazing to me. That's humbling because there is no knowledge out there in the scientific world that approaches the knowledge and wisdom of nature.

We think we know a lot in science today. We think modern medicine has conquered some diseases. We think we are really smart. Yet we know nothing compared to the wisdom of nature. It's time to be humble. It's time to invoke these pharmaceutical factories provided by nature, grow these foods, nourish our bodies and then stick around a while and see what else we can learn from nature.

I guarantee there are some very important and eye-opening lessons that nature will teach you if you are willing to stick around and listen to it. The very idea of having a garden and doing some basic gardening is highly educational all by itself. I recommend it to everyone. And besides, you can tell your neighbors that you're building a pharmaceutical factory in your back yard.
