Paul Chek: Dirt Facts… of Nutrition

5 06 2011

Filmed LIVE from the SWIS Symposium, Toronto, November 2005

Delve deep into the fundamentals of the food we eat in this live lecture given by Paul Chek at the SWIS Symposium in Toronto Canada. Paul discusses the VITAL relationship between the soil and the health of plants, animals and humans as we move up the food-chain. For example, did you know that a gram of healthy soil can contain some 600 million microorganisms and tens of thousands of different species of bacteria and fungi? Or that soil microorganisms provide the plant’s primary immune defense. When the microorganism population is disturbed, damaged or imbalanced, the plant suffers increased likelihood of both malnutrition and attack by invasive organisms.

Paul discusses the importance of Mycorrhiza, earthworms and humus, showing how conventional farming has disrupted the natural mechanisms that support healthy soil and healthy plants and how this has affected the health of the animals and humans that eat these plants. Filled with amazing facts and statistics, this lecture will open your eyes to the importance of considering not only what you eat, but where it has come from and how it has been grown.

With his unique, holistic approach to health and athletic performance, Paul brings together seemingly unrelated topics, from soil chemistry to the diets of traditional peoples, showing how these are importance considerations that directly affect those of us living in the western cultures of the 21st century.
