Even in Cows: A Diet Designed by Nature Reduces Health Problems

(NewsTarget) An organic dairy farm in Vermont found a way to bring down their vet bills and raise cows with fewer health problems. The answer was simple enough; they started feeding the animals grasses, flax and alfalfa - or essentially what amounts to a more natural diet for the animals. It's a diet they could consume while grazing in the pasture.

Just as important, they left out of the cow's diets the formerly feed soy and corn meal, or foods that are artificial in a cow's diet by nature's design. Corn and soy are not foods a cow would naturally consume in quantity while grazing in a pasture.

In just a few months, the cows belched significantly less methane gas and while this may seem minor, burping cows are actually a major contributor to greenhouse gases. It turns out that cow, pig and sheep belches represent the largest source of methane pollution in the U.S. and burped gases from these animals represent a full 2 percent of all the U.S. emissions that affect climate change.

After their diet was altered, the cows developed fewer foot problems, which are serious problems in farm animals, and had no stomach problems. The combination of which brought down the vet bills and in all likelihood, decreased the number of drugs the animals were given - drugs that are typically passed on secondhand to the consumers of milk.

Stonyfield Farm farmer, Kristen Dellert, seemed surprised that problems disappeared from the animals and was quoted by the Associated Press saying, "I just figured a cow was a cow and they were going to do whatever they were going to do in terms of cow things for gas."

It's actually very similar to how too many people think about human health.

The average consumer thinks that health problems are somehow natural and normal for humans and are a product of our genes, age, or luck. It doesn't occur to them that these problems may be much more directly related to the foods we consume on a regular basis - as most of what people eat is unnatural for the human species, by nature's design. Of course, it doesn't help that mainstream health care providers all too often echo this message, while handing out things like lollipops to children.

Now, there's a call on the government's steps to regulate emissions from these animals. But perhaps we're looking at the problem in the wrong way.

Perhaps the solution is not to measure and regulate the emissions of these animals, but to insist that they are fed in a way that's consistent with their natural diet by nature's design. When you recall that Mad Cow disease was created by aberrations to the cow's natural diet as well, to do anything less begins to look a bit foolish.

While we're on the topic, to do the same for human population wouldn't be such a bad idea. Most of the population would be just as surprised as the Stonyfield farmer at the problems of the body that would disappear, and the ones that would simply not appear, if we consistently ate diets consistent with nature's design, and eliminated what was not.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
