Alternative Medicine

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”. 1 John 3:1

The above quote is taken directly from the Bible. Unbeknownst to many people, the Bible has quite a bit to say about healing. We really should not find that strange because Jesus actually did so much healing. In fact, the Bible is replete with examples of Jesus healing people who otherwise may not have been healed by any other means.

Interestingly enough the Bible records what we would call alternative medicine.  In fact, the alternative or natural remedies of our day are now considered by many to be second-class medicine. The fact of the matter; however, is that for cases of chronic illness and various other disease processes natural or alternative medicine as, it is called, has proven itself to be very, very effective time and time again.

With that being the case, together with its relatively inexpensive cost, one will wonder why alternative or natural medicine is not more mainstream. Now to be clear, over the past few years it has become more and more mainstream and probably will become more and more mainstream. However, given the extraordinary cost of healthcare in the United States one would think that natural and alternative therapies would have become the norm even in hospitals– to the extent possible.

Monoply Medicine

I was reading an article recently on a subject that I read about in the past, which dealt with the opposition of mainstream medicine to practitioners of alternative medicine. The article was written by Dr. Joseph Mercola. The article is entitled: Chiropractors and Naturopaths- Are They Dangerous?

Dr. Mercola starts out by pointing out that the medical profession has a long history of opposing alternative healing professions. He writes:

“Medicine’s opposition to chiropractic was its strongest under the leadership of Morris Fishbein, Secretary of the American Medical Association from 1924 to 1949, who led a 50-year anti-chiropractic campaign in both professional publications and the public media.”

He goes on to point out how court rulings were handed down  in both 1975 in 1982 that declared learned professions were not exempt from antitrust laws, and that the FTC could also enforce antitrust laws even against medical societies.

These rulings allowed five chiropractors to file “an anti-trust suit against the American Medical Association (AMA) and several other heath care agencies and societies in Federal District Court (known as the Wilkes Case).”

Unbeknownst to most American citizens the chiropractors won this case! The judge found the AMA and others guilty of an illegal conspiracy against the chiropractic profession. This was in 1987. In fact, the judge ordered a permanent injunction against the AMA, and forced them to print the court’s findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Commenting on this decision Dr. Mercola writes, “Even with success of the Wilkes Case and other anti-trust litigation, the AMA continues to this day to wage a campaign against chiropractic. The American Medical Association (AMA) has maintained a decades-long battle against “alternative” healing traditions, dating back to the 1920s and arguably even earlier. The courts eventually ruled in favor of the chiropractors in 1987, finding the AMA guilty of a conspiracy to take down the chiropractic profession, as the above article recounts in detail.”

Dr. Mercola goes on to detail how this warfare against the natural or alternative practitioners continues to this day, only under a different guise. He notes how the AMA is not alone in this conspiracy to crush out natural medicine. He also points out:

  • The American Dental Association (ADA)
  • The American Cancer Society (ACS)
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and
  • The American Psychiatric Association (APA)

He says “… not to mention governmental regulatory agencies; all willing to march toward a common goal—a monopoly on medical care in this country. Together, they form a formidable lobbying force that controls just about every regulatory and legislative body in America.”

In short, in the 1987 court decision the court found that AMA together with other medical societies guilty of attempting to create a medical monopoly. In order to complete and finalize the provisions of this conspiracy the conspirators were found to be involved in the following actions:

Rogue Medicine

The systematic defamation of naturopathic, chiropractic and osteopathic physicians, the publication and distribution of propaganda that was specifically designed to ruin other healthcare professionals reputations, the forcing of MDs to refuse to collaborate with naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic physicians in the co-management of patients, and in denying hospital access to naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic physicians.

Dr. Mercola points out , correctly, that the attack upon the osteopathic physicians since that time has pretty much faded away. However, chiropractic, naturopathic, herbalists, and other legitimate practitioners are the targets of many of the same players that were discussed above. Not only that, they are using many of the same tactics and techniques to suppress and misrepresent, with propaganda, as they did before, and were forbidden to continue doing.

In his article Dr. Mercola pointed out that the AMA (before they removed it from their website) stated on their website in 2006 that they would oppose the licensure and practice of naturopathic physicians. Dr. Mercola writes the following on this point in his article:

Although they quickly removed this from their site, the following is a direct quote from that post, according to Naturopathy Digest:

“RESOLVED, That our American Medical Association work through its Board of Trustees to outline a policy opposing the licensure of naturopaths to practice medicine and report this policy to the House of Delegates no later than the 2006 Interim Meeting. (Directive to Take Action) Fiscal Note: Implement accordingly at estimated staff cost of $10,836.”

Translation: Eliminate the competition.”

Certification Preferred To Licensure

Now as a point of full disclosure, as a trained traditional  naturopath, I prefer certification to licensure. Licensure tends to lead to monopolistic systems, and thus drives up the cost of goods and services. I like the model of the accounting profession. For instance not all Accountants are CPAs, however Accountants the that choose not to be CPAs are not altogether prohibited from practicing their craft. Moreover, CPAs are certified as opposed to being licensed.

There are indeed a number of states that now license naturopathic physicians. Unfortunately however, many of these naturopathic physicians are now seeking to make laws that would hinder other naturopaths, either certified or non-certified from using the word naturopath or the initials-N.D., after their names, or even in some states restricting their rights to practice altogether. This is the exact same monopolistic mentality that they have had to fight against themselves. What is even more ironic is that much of what they know concerning the practice of their profession came from naturopaths who were unlicensed and and who preserved and relayed to them the  healing art of naturopathy. The thrust for licensure as opposed to certification will invariably drive the cost of naturopathic medicine higher. Moreover, unless naturopaths, many who have been practicing for years or even decades, are grandfathered in (in the states that may go that route) the number of available naturopaths would shrink, and of course the price would reflect it. Additionally, the level of service would suffer because the newer naturopaths would not possess the experience nor the hands own knowledge acquired from years of practice by naturopaths who were unlicensed because they were not required to be licensed. Indeed the AMA could not have developed a better weapon themselves to destroy natural medicine then by placing restrictions upon the backs of many experienced and knowledgeable naturopaths, herbalists, and other legitimate natural practitioners.

 

More Allies For the AMA

Dr. Mercola points out further in his article that, “the American Psychiatric Association (APA) joined the battle with a statement that their goal was to “thwart the growing threat of expansion of scope of practice for allied health professionals” and included psychologists on the list of medical practitioners who needed to be “thwarted” (in addition to naturopaths, chiropractors, and midwives). The APA pledged their allegiance to the AMA in assisting them with “coordinating research to help medical specialty societies and state medical associations fight expansions in non-medical scope of practice, and improve information sharing among those groups.”  Continuing he also adds, “Other medical associations have made similar pledges, such as the Minnesota Medical Association and the New York Academy of Family Physicians. They maintain that their position is based on concern for quality of care and patient safety, but the REAL agenda is just an attempt to destroy the competition.” Emphasis Mine

Chiropractor Louis Sportelli says:

“Just look around and you will see clear and compelling evidence that the long-standing war between the AMA and everyone else who does not come under the AMA umbrella is far from over. The names have changed, the venue has changed, but the intent has remained the same: to maintain monopolistic control over the delivery of health care.”

 

If you would understand the high cost of healthcare then you must understand that quote. Anytime a monopoly is set up the managers and controllers of that monopoly can essentially make the prices what they  want them to be because they can effectively shut out all competition.

“We Are The Real Doctors!”

Dr. Mercola writes:

” In 2010, the AMA House of Delegates introduced a resolution regarding scope of practice that contains limitations on who can be considered a legitimate physician, and who can medically diagnose. Specifically, the AMA’s “Definition of a Physician” (H-405.969) contains the following language:

“The AMA affirms that a physician is an individual who has received a ‘Doctor of Medicine’ or a ‘Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine’ degree.”

This is proof, without a doubt, that the AMA as well as individual state medical associations intend to continue doing everything they can to prevent you from accessing natural healthcare.”

Again we see a group of self interested professionals (medical doctors in this case) that had taken it upon themselves to define a legitimate physician. Their definition of a legitimate physician does not include natural practitioners. As a result of their awesome power and influence, gained largely from the sale and or promotion of pharmaceutical drugs that poison millions even to death each year, they then go and influence lawmakers to make laws to restrict the access of the people to choose any modality of treatment that they see fit.

So we conclude by asking the question are chiropractors, naturopaths, and herbalists etc., dangerous quacks?

We saw earlier in this article that the AMA, together with other organizations, had been found guilty in a civil trial of spreading propaganda with the intent and purpose of delegitimizing natural medicine and destroying the reputation of its practitioners. Why would they do such a thing? Because they realize that for the treatment of chronic diseases, which is the bulk of the healthcare cost, legitimate natural medicine is far superior in treating chronic diseases and illnesses than is allopathic-based medicine. So rather than go head-to-head in a free market economy with natural medicine, natural medicine and its practitioners must be demonized and eradicated, because it is a threat to long-term profitability of the medical establishment.

I have only briefly pointed out a few facts in this article, there are many amazing books and videos full to the brim with documented evidence of the monopolistic mindset of the AMA and many of the other medical societies. I suggest that you take the time to research the issue yourself… Your health depends on it!

Tips For Great Organic Gardening

When you have the option, organically grown produce is almost always far superior to the other choices in the grocery store. Why not save your money and grown your own veggies? Read on so you know what it takes to create a thriving organic garden.

If you are looking at creating an endurable organic garden, you should think about keeping some of your property vacant so that wildlife may flourish there. This can be a good area for the types of insects that pollinate plants. It can also be a sanctuary for birds, which will help some plants thrive. This can greatly improve the production of your organic garden.

Create a space perfect for any perennial garden with this easy method. Turn over the soil in your garden so it will be soft and easy to plant before spreading wood chips around your garden. Let this sit for a couple weeks, next dig into it to plant your new plants.

The optimal amount of organic mulch to use in your flower beds is 2-3 inches. Covering the beds with mulch serves multiple purposes; it helps the flowers by retaining moisture and adding nutrients, and it discourages the growth of unwanted plants. This will also give a nice, professional appearance to your garden all year.

Pine needles should not be overlooked as a great source for mulch. Some plants need acidic soil to grow properly, because of their own acid content. For such plants, pine needles function both as a handy mulch and as a soil amendment to lower the pH. Sprinkle the pine needles over your beds. As the needles decompose, they add to the acid level in the soil.

Using coffee grounds as part of your soil mixture in your garden is often advised for healthy plants. Coffee grounds add many nitrogenous nutrients to the soil that will benefit your plants. Usually, nitrogen is limited with a plant, but using coffee grounds, diluted urea, or compost can make your plants grow faster and taller.

Don’t let your organic gardening tasks stack up for very long. Every time you go outside, you should take care of a few things so that you do not have too much work to do when you have the time to go back to your garden. If you put the dog outside, weed a few spots in the garden while your dog goes to the bathroom.

Although organic gardening is often much harder than using chemicals, the reward is much greater. While chemical-based gardening products make bold claims, it is hard to dispute that organic gardening consistently produces superior results.

Consider the climate and season when watering your plants. The amount of water you need depends on when you are doing the watering, whether your water is high-quality and the grade of the soil in your garden. For instance, if you live in a humid climate where it never goes below 30 degrees Celsius, refrain from watering the leaves, as this will inevitably invite leaf fungus. A better method is to water the root system only.

Try growing some organic garlic. Plant individual cloves of garlic in the early spring or fall in moist, well-drained soil. Plant them an inch or two below the soil line with the pointed end facing the sky. Each clove should be around 4 inches from the one beside it. Green garlic shoots can be cut as they grow, and used in place of chives or scallions. The bulbs are ready to harvest when the tops start to turn brown. Dry the bulbs well in the sun for several days to harden the skin. The garlic may then be stored within a cool location tied together in bunches or simply loose.

Stop purchasing pesticide sprayed, genetically modified produce. Use the advice in this article and you can start growing your own organic produce.

Eat Healthier: Tips For Organic Gardening

Posted by NatureDoc | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 03-09-2014

If you invest your time in doing organic gardening properly, the results are obvious. This will show that you love your plants and care about their health. This is an admirable thing. However, you can always find new things to learn about, and improve your skills. The following tips can assist you.

Gardeners who are intrigued by the ideas of organic and sustainable methods should think about designating a portion of their landscape to support native plants and animals. The kind of birds and insects needed for pollination will be naturally present on your property and help with your organic garden.

Just as when outside, plants kept inside need varying degrees of sunlight, which can be harder to obtain from indoors. Almost every type of plant you grow requires ample sunlight, so think about how much natural light you home receives or if you perhaps need to supplement with UV lamps. Otherwise, you could simply use your own lights.

Have your gardening tools near you to minimize the time spent searching for them. Wear pants with multiple pockets or use a toolbox or large bucket. A gardener’s tool belt will allow you to keep your gardening gloves and other tools close by while you are working in your garden.

Space is very important when you plant an organic garden. You can underestimate how much space you need when they are growing. Beyond just the physical space that the plants will need, you should also consider the airflow that the plants will require. Plan your garden accordingly, and make sure the right distance is between the seeds.

When planting seeds in containers, plant the seed roughly three times deeper than the seed’s size. There are exceptions, however. Some types of seeds require more direct sunlight than others, and as such they should not be fully covered. Ageratum and petunias fall into this category. If you are unsure as to whether or not your seeds should be covered or not, try to read the package or find the answer online.

Lightly ruffle your seeds by hand or with cardboard, twice daily in your organic garden. This will sound a bit strange. However, it has been proven to cause plants to grow larger.

If slugs are an issue in your garden, a beer trap can make them go away. Take a glass jar and bury it in your garden so that the top of it is level with the soil. Next, add beer to the jar until it’s about nearly full, with somewhere around an inch of space remaining. The slugs will be drawn to the beer and then drown in the jar.

Mulch is necessary for a healthy soil. The mulch will protect the soil underneath it. It protects the plant roots, keeping the ground cool on a hot summer day. Additionally, moisture will not evaporate from the ground so quick when mulch is applied. It also is helpful in keeping weeds under control.

Gardening can not only be an excellent hobby for consuming time, but is great for saving money and aiding a healthy diet. When you garden organically, you see the entire process from the beginning to the end. The whole process becomes more clear, and you appreciate all the earth offers you.

Just by doing a few things, you can make a garden for perennials. Use a spade to cut and flip over your turf, then cover the new bed with wood chips. After a few weeks, you can cut into the new bed and plant your perennials.

Use a few inches of organic materials to mulch your flowerbed or garden. In addition to adding aesthetic beauty, the mulch will nourish your soil and help it retain water more easily while preventing weeds from growing.

When gardening, know what is available for you to use. Try using organic substitutes for the typical chemical fertilizers. A good organic compost is good for your plants. If you use inorganic products, your soil and drinking water could be contaminated with chemicals.

An organic shade garden is a good choice for any beginner. The good news is that shade gardens are actually low maintenance and fun to enjoy. They will require much less watering, which saves a lot of work and time. Growth is sustained, but weeds will be less of a problem.

As you prepare to plant shrubs and trees in the organic garden, make sure your holes are rough, not smooth. When holes you have dug end up with slick sides due to the shovel you used, it is possible that the roots may not be able to sink into the soil properly.

Be particular when selecting the plants you will include in the organic garden. Many garden plants come in a wide range of varieties, and these varieties can often have quite different care requirements. Different varieties of the same plant might respond differently to the environment you have created in your garden. Research the types of plants that are best suited to the environment and weather conditions where you live.

You know that there are numerous benefits to using compost on organic gardens, but have you ever wondered what it is made up of? It is made from a variety of items, including wood chips, bits of produce, twigs, straw, grass clippings, and leaves, all of which have decomposed into a sort of soil. You can use a compost instead of a commercial fertilizer and save money.

You now have the information you need to start applying these tips to your own organic garden. This is great news! What you have just read can help you get the most from your garden. In fact, it is possible that you came across a trick that you never would have thought of otherwise.

Simple Things All Organic Gardeners Should Know

Posted by NatureDoc | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 27-08-2014

Most people in our society have heard about the benefits of eating organic, or seen organic products in the grocery store. It’s important to know which products are organic and which are not. These items are packaged in a different manner, and they typically cost much more. This article can help you save money by growing organic produce right in your own garden.

Using a solution of aspirin and water can prevent certain plant diseases. Dissolve three aspirin in four gallons of water. You simply have to spray the solution on your plants to assist them in warding off diseases. The spray ought to be applied approximately every three weeks.

It is important to keep the temperature set between 65 and 75 degrees, if you wish to raise plants in the home. The temperature needs to remain warm so they may grow. If you aren’t wanting your house to be this warm in the winter, you can use a heat lamp on the plants.

Have your tools for gardening nearby in order to maximize your efficiency with gardening. Carry your tools in a bucket, or keep them in the pockets of a pair of rugged pants. Keep gloves, small pruning shears, a trowel and any other tools handy in order to increase the quickness of the work that goes into your garden.

Working in the garden doesn’t have to be grueling; learn to work more efficiently. If it takes you thirty minutes to find a needed tool, then you are doing something wrong. Prepare them all ahead of time and have them handy before you need to garden, and then put them back in their place when done. It may be necessary to don a tool belt or cargo pants with extra pockets.

When it’s harvest time, you should utilize a basket that you put laundry in to carry your veggies. A laundry basket will act as a strainer for your produce. You can rinse your produce off while it is in the basket, and the excess water will strain through the holes of your laundry basket.

When you’re making a compost pile, you should use fresh and dried plants to get it started. Green plant material can include old flowers, fruit waste, grass clippings, vegetable waste, and leaves. Dried materials are things like hay, wood shavings, cardboard and paper. Don’t throw charcoal, meat or manure into your compost.

Do you want to kill weeds naturally? You should layer some newspaper to get weeds under control. Without light, there can be no weeds. If you place sheets of newspaper over the weeds, they will die due to a lack of sunlight. The newspapers will break down over a period of time, and will become part of your compost. Put mulch over top to increase the attractiveness of the pile.

Build raised beds with untreated stone, brick or wood. If you use wood, be sure that it is untreated and naturally rot resistant. Cypress, locust and cedar are all great examples of what woods to use when building a raised bed. In a veggie garden, don’t use treated wood since its chemicals can leech into the food crops and soil. If you have already used lumber that is treated, you can line it with plastic or another type of barrier.

An easy to grow plant to grow in your organic garden is garlic. Plant single garlic cloves during the spring or fall seasons in soil that is moist and well drained. Plant your garlic cloves around 1-2 inches into the ground, making sure the end is pointed up and they are four inches from each other. You can use the tops of the garlic shoots instead of scallions or chives. You can harvest the bulbs as the tops begin to turn brown. Dry the bulbs in the sun in order to harden their skin. Garlic can be tied in bunches or left loose, and stored where it will be cool and dry.

Look under the soil as a start! Tomato seedlings with green starts and poor root systems are something to watch out for. Look carefully at these before purchasing them for your garden. The reason is because these particular starts will stay on the seedlings for weeks, which will not allow the seedlings to grow until these starts are gone.

Do some research on botanical insecticides, as they can be effective in controlling pests. These natural insecticides are just as effective as chemicals, sometimes even more so. Natural insecticides do have the disadvantage of a shorter effective period and a quick decline.

When you mulch your garden beds with organic material, make sure it’s about three inches deep. This will add nutrients to your soil, keep it moist, stop the growth of weeds and keep the garden looking beautiful.

Growing your garden at home might not be the most convenient thing for you, but you will save a lot of money and always have the confidence that what you’re eating and feeding your family is as fresh and as healthy as possible. Use the tips you’ve learned here and get started on your garden today.

Learn To Grow Like A Pro: Organic Gardening Advice

Posted by NatureDoc | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 20-08-2014

Successful organic gardening requires the use of some particular methods and techniques. All that is needed from you to have a great organic garden is to learn what they are, and to put them into practice.

Organic gardening is a safe hobby to share with your children. Growing a garden is a great way to teach your children about nature while allowing you to have time to bond with them.

A great way to ensure that your organic garden will do well is to keep a section of your land unspoiled. The natural wildlife will spring up and make for a perfect organic habitat. Your cultivated garden spaces will benefit from the various insects and wildlife that will inhabit and pollinate the undeveloped space.

Easily and quickly prepare your ground for a garden of perennials. Only a garden spade and woods chips are necessary. To prepare the garden, slice out sheets of turf using the spade, and flip the turf upside down. Then, cover the newly turned soil with wood chips, approximately three inches deep. After a few weeks, you may then utilize the area to plant your flowers.

As your seeds sprout, they require less warmth than before. Move your plants further away from your heat source as they grow. Make sure you remember to remove any plastic films that were on the plant containers to repel humidity and warmth. Unless you closely monitor your seedlings, you may not move them in time.

Have some plastic bags on hand that you can put over your gardening shoes if they are muddy. This way, you won’t break momentum by fussing with your shoes, and you’ll be quickly back in the garden to finish your work.

Coffee grounds are a great addition to soil. These coffee grounds have many nitrogenous nutrients that your plants could use. Nitrogen is generally a way to make your plants grow bigger, better and faster.

Try not to let the chores associated to your organic garden build up. If you can’t get out in your garden every day, there are still a number of things you can do to keep things from falling into disarray during your absence. You can pull a few weeds when you take your dog outside.

A great tip when running your own organic garden, is to lightly ruffle your seedlings with your hand or cardboard, around once or twice per day. That may sound like a silly thing to do, but it’s been proven to help plants grow larger than they would otherwise.

If you sell your crops and label them organic, you should get an organic garden certified seal. This can boost sales and tell loyal customers that you’re providing the best to them.

An easy to grow plant to grow in your organic garden is garlic. Plant single garlic cloves during the spring or fall seasons in soil that is moist and well-drained. Space the clove about four inches apart, with the pointy end up and about one or two inches deep. As the garlic shoots grow, you can snip them and use them for cooking. The garlic is ready to be picked when the tops turn brown. Dry the bulbs in the sun in order to harden their skin. Store them somewhere cool, in tied bunches or loose.

You can simply make a newer garden for perennials with a few steps. Lift the top layer of turf with your spade, flip it, then cover the exposed soil with three or more inches of mulch. In a few weeks, try cutting into your new bed and planting some perennials.

When you mulch your garden beds with organic material, make sure it’s about three inches deep. In addition to adding aesthetic beauty, the mulch will nourish your soil and help it retain water more easily while preventing weeds from growing.

Anyone can plant a garden, but only those with the proper knowledge will receive the most out of their crop. Be sure to try out these organic gardening ideas.

Basic Steps For Growing Your Organic Garden

Posted by NatureDoc | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 13-08-2014

There’s a lot more to gardening than most people realize. If you plan on doing it naturally, you probably need to know certain things, such as natural bug-fighting concoctions and the soil’s pH balance. Organic gardening is way harder than traditional gardening for beginners. Be certain you do things the correct way, and get some help from the information offered below.

Young children will love it if you plant strawberries that bear continually, and organic gardens are the perfect place to do it. Children love to snap up these sweet juicy fruits for themselves and will be much more willing to eat other foods you’ve planted as well.

The ambient temperate of a room with live plants should be kept between sixty-five and seventy-five degrees throughout the day. The plants need this temperature in order to effectively grow. If you wish to keep your house cooler than that, you may want to use a heat lamp just for the plants.

When you are cultivating an organic garden inside, you should think about the lighting situation. Ideally, these plants should be kept in a room that offers natural light from a window or glass door. If this is not an option, or you have your heart set on a particular type of plant, consider adding additional growing lights instead.

Preparing the soil for your perennial garden is easy. Simply use a spade or small shovel to get under the grass or turf and flip it over. Then, using wood chips, cover the area to a depth of three or four inches. Let this sit for a couple weeks, next dig into it to plant your new plants.

Once your seeds start sprouting, they do not need as much warmth as they needed before. As your plants grow, you will want to put a little distance between them and heat. You should also remove plastic films that you had on your containers to keep the humidity and warmth out. Check on your seeds periodically to make sure you know when to remove the films.

Pine can make for a great type of mulch. Some plants do better in soil with high acidity as they are highly acidic themselves. Pine needles to line the bed of your garden are easy to find for these kinds of plants. Cover your beds with the needles, as they will decompose and disperse their acid throughout the soil.

Tend your organic garden on a regular schedule. Not everyone has time to tend their gardens every day, but by doing little things whenever you have a chance, you can avoid having things pile up. For example, snatch out a weed or two whenever you pass by the garden, such as when you take your dog out for a potty break.

You may find an old plastic laundry basket ideal for gathering vegetables from your garden. This will be like a strainer for all your produce. If you hose off your produce in the laundry basket, the water will leave the basket through the holes in the sides.

While it’s harder to grow organically than chemically, the rewards are much better. Though the use of chemicals has its own benefits, organic farming is a rewarding experience that ends with natural, healthy produce.

Excessive amounts of water makes it harder for plants to get the nutrients they need from the soil. Before watering your plants outdoors, check to see if there is rain in the forecast. You can skip watering for an entire day if rain is on the way.

One thing that sets organic gardening apart from conventional gardening is that commercial pesticides are not used. While this is great for your loved ones’ health, still check for pests and bugs.

Annually rotate your garden. Planting the same family of plants in the same area over and over can cause disease and fungus to start growing. Those things can wait silently in the soil and attack plants the next year. Changing your planting layout will allow you to avoid costly problems and have large, bountiful plants.

Garlic can be simple to grow organically. Plant some individual garlic cloves into well-drained soil in early spring. Plant each bulb at least four inches from each other. Bury them about two inches in the soil with their pointed end facing up. The green shoots can be used as they grow. Use them in place of scallions or chives. The garlic is ready to be picked when the tops turn brown. Dry the bulbs in the sun in order to harden their skin. Store the cloves in a cool area. They can be tied or left loose.

Now, you shouldn’t get your hopes up and believe that a few tips are going to turn you into an instant professional gardener. However, these tips are a great starting point if you do plan to grow organically. As you implement these tips and hone your skills, you’ll be a professional green-thumb-holder in no time.

You have the desire to set up an organic garden that is nutritious and fresh. What perfect timing! The following article is full of tips you can use to grow amazing organic plants without spending a lot of money.

Easily and quickly prepare your ground for a garden of perennials. Use a spade to dig up some soil, flip the soil over, and finally, sprinkle around 3-4 inches of wood chips on the soil. After a few weeks, dig, then plant your perennials.

Take your seedlings and saplings to a cooler spot once they are established. After growth begins, you can remove plants from any excessive heat sources. This also includes removing any plastic that you had covering the plant or container. Unless you closely monitor your seedlings, you may not move them in time.

Add three inches of mulch to your flower beds. A thick layer of mulch will prevent weeds, reduce watering needs and fertilize your garden. It will also increase the visual appeal of the flower beds.

Don’t let the chores for your organic garden pile up. No matter what your schedule is like, you should be able to fit in small things that will help you avoid having an overwhelming amount of work all at once. Grab a handful of weeds, throw down some mulch, or toss some water on it anytime you walk by.

Killing weeds the natural way? Use several layers of newspapers for weed control. Without light, there can be no weeds. By placing newspaper over them, they will not get light and suffocate. Newspapers also decompose fairly quickly, and mix with your garden soil. You can then add a mulch layer right on top so that it looks more attractive.

Lightly ruffle your seeds by hand or with cardboard, twice daily in your organic garden. It may sound a little odd to do this, but there is actually proven research that shows this helps the plants grow.

It is a good idea to get organic garden certification so as to reaffirm your claims that your products really are organic. This will improve your sales and show your faithful customers that they are getting the best possible food that is grown.

Throughout the year and in different climates, it may be necessary to vary your watering schedule. When watering your plants, consider the time you are watering them, the kind of soil you are using and how good the water is. In a warm and humid climate you should avoid watering the plant itself. Wet leaves promote the growth of leaf fungi. You have to make sure to water the root system.

Overall, a layer of mulch is beneficial for the soil. A couple of inches of mulch will protect what lies beneath it. The soil will stay cool in high heat, preventing damage to the roots. It will also stop the soil from losing it’s moisture in the hot sunlight. This also helps all the weeds you have stay under control, relieving stress from your shoulders.

Too much water may hurt plants since extra water can keep roots from getting the nutrients they need from the soil. Prior to watering your outdoor plants, you should check with weather stations to see if it will be raining later in the day. After reviewing the weather forecast, you can decide whether or not to spend the time and resources watering the garden.

Any form of gardening helps you get in tune with the environment, but organic gardening takes this concept to the next level. This kind of gardening shows you the entire progression of planting from beginning to end.

Rotate your garden at least once a year. Fungus and diseases will appear if you have the same kind of plants in the same place from one year to the next. These kind of enemies to plants can stay underground ready for the next year to cause harm to your plants. Moving the plants to different areas will prevent these invaders from growing on your plants.

Hopefully these tips have helped to prepare you for having an organic garden. No matter how comfortable you felt about the subject, you should be more so now. The tips included here will help you create the most beautiful and abundant organic garden you can, so enjoy!

Great Gardening Advice On Great Organic Gardening

You would like to have a garden that uses organic methods to grow healthy plants. The time to do it is now. Included in this article is advice that can assist you in your gardening endeavors.

Include your children in your efforts to organic gardening. Growing a garden offers a unique learning experience, and you and your child can grow closer while growing healthy food for your family.

If you’re working to build a sustainable organic garden, try leaving a portion of your garden untouched so that the wildlife will be able to thrive. You will see many of the birds and insects that are present will assist in pollination and plant production, helping to create a much better garden.

The ambient temperate of a room with live plants should be kept between sixty-five and seventy-five degrees throughout the day. In order to encourage proper growth, they will need that warmth. If this is a little too warm for your house, grow your organic plants under a heat lamp.

It is simple to prepare your garden for perennial flowers. Simple slice into the soil with a spade, flip the turf, and mulch the area with 3 to 4 inches of wood chips. Allow for at least 10 days to pass, then plant the perennials that you just purchased.

Use about two to three inches of organic material as mulch in all of your flower beds. A thick layer of mulch will prevent weeds, reduce watering needs and fertilize your garden. This also gives your flower beds a more aesthetic aspect.

When you are doing work in your garden, be efficient. Do not spend half an hour looking everywhere for a tool. Take the time to prepare the necessary tools, and then store them in a easily accessed place once you are done gardening. If needed, purchase a tool belt or heavy duty pants with plenty of pockets.

Pine needles should not be overlooked as a great source for mulch. Some plants like acidic soil because they have high acidity. Use pine needles to increase the acid level in your soil if you have plants that require higher acid. Spread the needles over the beds in a layer that is approximately 2-inches deep. Over time, the needles will begin to decay, supplying the soil with acid as they do.

Coffee grounds are a great addition to soil. They contain nitrogenous nutrients which are essential to plant growth. Nitrogen is often the most important nutrient when it comes to plants thriving, and a solid source of nitrogen, like coffee grounds, urea, or compost, can boost growth speed and increase height.

Organize the chores for your organic garden so they do not pile up. Even if you can’t tend to your garden daily, you can do little things to help so that there is not a huge amount of work to be done when you are ready to get back to it. For example, if you are playing in the yard with your child, take a few moments to pull some weeds as well.

Be sure your new compost pile contains roughly the same proportion of dried and green plants. Green plant mulches include everything from fresh grass clippings, to unwanted vegetables, to recently pulled weeds. Dried material includes straw, shredded paper, and cardboard. Your compost pile should never contain meat, ashes or charcoal.

A diversity of materials can be used to construct raised beds. These include brick, stone, and wood. If you choose wood, ensure that it has not been treated with a sealant or other chemicals. Cypress, locust and cedar usually work best. Never use compost from treated woods in a veggie garden; the chemicals can contaminate your food. If your existing garden structure contains treated wood, at least take the time to make a plastic lining beneath the soil.

Certification is important in order to be considered a legitimate organic gardener. This should improve sales and attract customers who are environmentally conscious. A certification will easily communicate to them that they are getting the best products possible.

Water demands from plants will depend on the season and the climate in your area. Other factors that influence how much you need to water include time of day, soil factors and how hard your water is. For instance, in warm and balmy locations, it is important not to water leaves, as doing so tends to foster fungus growth. Water the roots with care.

Hopefully these tips have helped to prepare you for having an organic garden. If you were under the impression you were good at organic gardening before, you should now feel like an expert! The tips included here will help you create the most beautiful and abundant organic garden you can, so enjoy!

Organic Gardening Tips For Every Season Of The Year

Starting and maintaining an organic garden requires a lot of patience, and an affinity for growing plants. Gardening is a hobby which can grow healthy produce that is pesticide free. Although this may sound easier than it is. The advice in this article will give you all you need to start growing your own organic food.

When helping organic plants flourish inside, it is vital to keep in mind how much light is reaching them. If your apartment or home does not receive a huge amount of sunlight, you might want to grow plants that adapt to medium and low light environments instead. If the type of plant does not help, you can always use lights to help.

For your flower beds, organic material should be used as mulch. Two or three inches should be enough. Mulching is the perfect way to lock in moisture, nourish soil, and to keep away weeds. This will also give a nice, professional appearance to your garden all year.

You should always take spacing into account when placing plants in your organic garden. You can underestimate how much space you need when they are growing. Plants need room for physical growth and for the air to circulate within the soil. It is, therefore, important for you to plan accordingly and allow for enough room between your seed rows.

Include both green and dry plant refuse in your compost. “Green” material refers to things like wilted flowers, weeds, leaves from your yard, and grass clippings. Your dried material can be things such as sawdust, paper shreds, wood shavings, straw and cardboard. Don’t include ashes, diseased plants, charcoal meat, or carnivorous animal waste.

A good thing to know when it comes to your organic garden, and running it, is to, a couple times a day, lightly ruffle the seedlings with cardboard or your hand. Even though it sounds strange, it will help plants get bigger.

Brick, stone or untreated wood is great for building raised beds. If you use wood, be sure that it is untreated and naturally rot resistant. Good choices are cedar, locust and cypress. In order to avoid toxic substances from getting into the ground and perhaps into your vegetables, avoid using treated wood to enclose or demarcate different sections of your vegetable garden. You may have previously used treated lumber; if so, you should use a plastic liner to cover it.

Add mulch for healthy soil. The soil can be greatly enhanced by adding a good layer of mulch to it. This protective effect is especially important during the summer, as it protects the roots from the effects of the heat. It greatly reduces water loss, keeping the soil moist with fewer waterings. Mulch is also great for controlling weed growth.

An easy to grow plant to grow in your organic garden is garlic. Garlic cloves may be planted in soil with good drainage in either the spring or fall. Place them about one to two inches deep in the soil, pointed end up, and four inches apart. As your garlic shoots grow, you can cut them and use them instead of scallions or chives. You will know when to harvest the garlic, because the tops will gradually turn brown. Allow the skin to harden by letting your bulbs sit out in the sun. You can then store the bulbs loosely or gathered into bunches in a cool location.

Organic gardening combines hard work, patience and nature. This hobby allows you to use the land and grow delicious food. Being a competent organic gardener can be achieved by simply putting in some effort, and learning a few helpful tips.

Excellent Organic Gardening Ideas To Maximize Your Garden!

An organic garden provides you with a much healthier diet. However, effort is required in order to effectively grow. Are you wondering where to start?

Strawberries are a great plant to grow in any organic garden, especially if you happen to have kids or any strawberry lover in your home. Children love to snap up these sweet juicy fruits for themselves and will be much more willing to eat other foods you’ve planted as well.

Preparing a plot for planting a perennial garden can be done quickly and without difficulty. Simple slice into the soil with a spade, flip the turf, and mulch the area with 3 to 4 inches of wood chips. Let the area have about two weeks, then dig it and plan the new perennials.

It never hurts to keep a few bags around the house to protect your floors from dirty gardening shoes. You will save time and be back in the garden much more quickly by doing this.

One of the most important things to consider when plotting your garden is to make note of your available space. It is easy to underestimate the amount of space that the plants will take up once they start to grow. Plants don’t just need enough space for their physical size; they also need enough space for the air in your garden to circulate properly. Make sure your seeds have a good amount of space between each other for optimal growth.

Try to avoid letting your organic garden chores build up. Even if you’re to busy to focus on your garden’s needs each day, you could do small things that could prevent you from piling up work when you wish to work on your garden. Take the time to do a little weeding or something else that needs to be done each time you have to be outside keeping an eye on your dog, which for some can be several times a day.

Do you want to get rid of weeds in a natural way? You should layer some newspaper to get weeds under control. The main thing that a weed needs to thrive is sunlight. If you place sheets of newspaper over the weeds, they will die due to a lack of sunlight. Newspaper decompose quickly and integrate into the compost. You can then add a mulch layer right on top so that it looks more attractive.

When planting seeds in containers, remember that the depth should be at least three times bigger than the seed. There are some seeds, however, that you should not cover at all, since they need sunlight to germinate. Some typical examples are petunias and ageratum. If you’re not sure, a guide either comes with seeds, or you can find this information online.

If slugs are an issue in your garden, a beer trap can make them go away. Take a glass jar and bury it in your garden so that the top of it is level with the soil. Fill that with beer just under an inch from the top of your jar. The slugs will be attracted to the beer and will end up being trapped within the confines of the jar.

Regulate the amount and timing of watering, to the specific climate and its seasonal variations. The watering depth and temperature depends mainly on the time you water them and the soil they are planted in. For instance, if you are in a warm and humid climate, avoid getting any water on the leaves because this will cause leaf fungus. Instead, keep the root system well-watered.

As you’ve read, organic gardening requires work, effort, and research so that you can grow organic plants. It also holds true, that if you want to see results, you need to keep putting effort into it. By using the above tips, you will have a marvelous organic garden in no time.

In the world of organic gardening, there are plenty of great resources available to both new and experienced organic gardeners alike. There are many e-guides, books, videos, and other resources available. This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good organic gardener become a great organic gardener.

Aspirin water has disease-prevention properties that can protect plants. Try dissolving around one and one half aspirins into around 2 gallons of water for your plants. Spray this mixture onto your plants. Try to apply the mixture to the plants at least once in each three week period.

To keep your houseplants happy during the day, your thermostat should be set anywhere between 65 and 75 degrees. This level of heat is required in order for plants to grow. If you think it would not be comfortable to keep your residence that warm in the winter, consider purchasing a heat lamp to use on the plants.

If you plan to raise organic plants inside, you need to think about how much light they will get. If you want indoor plants, choose specimens that can grow in relatively dark places. If you cannot achieve success merely through plant selection, consider using artificial light sources.

Before planting your favorite perennials, you must first prepare the ground. Only a garden spade and woods chips are necessary. To prepare the garden, slice out sheets of turf using the spade, and flip the turf upside down. Then, cover the newly turned soil with wood chips, approximately three inches deep. Allow for at least 10 days to pass, then plant the perennials that you just purchased.

Cover your muddy shoes with plastic bags. Having these available lets you keep your flow in movement, and helps you return to your gardening fast so you can finish up your day.

Pine can make a great mulch. Some garden plants have a high acidity, and prefer acidic soil. If you have acid loving plants, use pine needles as a mulch. Cover your beds with the needles, as they will decompose and disperse their acid throughout the soil.

When planting your organic garden, spacing is an important thing to keep in mind. You can easily underestimate how much space the plants need until they begin to grow. The plants will inevitably need to unfurl and spread, but they also need the circulation of air from open spaces. If necessary, use a ruler to measure the distance between each plant.

The simple beer trap is still one of the best methods of ridding your organic garden of slugs. Start by burying a wide-mouth jar in the soil, ensuring that the rim of the jar is just at the soil’s surface. Fill the jar with beer within one inch of the top. The beer will attract the slugs and they will be trapped in the jar.

If you’re planning on selling crops to people and labeling them as organic, you will need to receive an organic gardening certification. This will result in generating more sales and creating a loyal customer base.

With the information you just learned, you can start trying different organic methods in your own garden. There is a lot of information to be had and you need to know how to apply it. Utilize the advice in this article to improve the techniques you have been using, and grow a better organic garden.
