    Thanks Elaine for sharing so much – it was an education with the very best of motives: the survival of this planets life forms which would include ourselves – the highest benevolence. So please let me share something with you. Our gut microbiome changes its population according to what food we eat and it seems that eating meat and consuming dairy encourages the dominance of "the bad guys". Bad in that the immune system is seriously compromised at our first line of defense – in the gut itself – when consumed regularly. It leads to the occurring of a plethora of auto-immune diseases. There are of course only three major food types: carbohydrates, protein and fats. As a species we are evolved to seek our energy from carbohydrates; there are next to none in animals. Although we can derive energy from protein (amino acids), an emergency contingency only, this happens by anaerobic metabolisation. The process of ketosis releases so much toxin that if pursued as a preferred method of energy provisioning will be responsible for causing ill-health and eventually organ failure. Its not so much the amount that you eat but that it be proportioned, roughly, around the numbers 80.10.10 (80% carbohydrate) and that your diet not include any animal proteins or fats (they are responsible for causing the major killer diseases). The best nutritionists are biochemists (like T. Colin Campbell – seek him out). Once again a big thank you to the Conscious Society and Elaine for broadcasting their conversation.

    great vid , would love to find the list of low growing perennials for Australia that she mentioned @ 41:25 though , there is a list on the US SFI site but not on the SFI Australia site , anyone seen the Australian list/research or is it like most things here , you pay then you know , open source is a bit of a foreign language in Oz

    This video make me very happy about my, no till backyard garden. I have never had formal training but having learnt through observation and intuition from a young age, i observed my parents and i observed how the plants responded. Plants have a language too, they communicate through 'predictable response", they tell you exactly how they are doing and what you are doing right or wrong. Adding chemicals has never felt right so i didnt do it, Iv always added life to my garden, all sorts of life that is beneficial to growth of all organisms in the soil. I'm just the delivery man, the rest of the living things that make use of my garden are the TRUE workers, my garden is like a HUGE multi-cellular organism (thats the way i think of it anyway) and its systems are all in tip top condition 😀 No chemicals needed or wanted.

    Phil and Elaine, thank you for the video. I am new to gardening and I'm trying to understand it all. What books or sources do you recommend in building a balanced soil mixture? Right now I am testing my first raised garden and I am experimenting with sifted native soil, fruit/vegetable food scraps, cow manure, ground leaves and straw. There is a lot of conflicting advice out there so I decided to start on my own and test however in order to test I need to find reliable ways to test my soil over the course of my project. Any advice or if you could point me in the right direction that would be nice.
