Currently, there is a war going on. Actually, scratch that. Currently, there are wars going on, and one is none other than the battle to bring down our food supply even more. You may have heard about the recent threat to our organic food supply. If not, basically, the USDA’s regulations on its organic labeling process has changed.
What this means is that the USDA has lowered its standards on organics. What this means for you, if you buy and eat organic foods, is that you cannot be so sure you are getting 100% organic. This not only diminishes your confidence in the organic food label – that USDA organic sticker or seal you see on produce and packages, it also means more work on your part.
So if you happen to be a busy mom with two kids, one with autism, and another with food allergies, and you’re trying to be a wife, and still find time for yourself, this can be very infuriating. This obscurity makes buying organic foods that much more daunting and frustrating, considering already, the overwhelming responsibility you have when it comes to making vast amount of food choices to meet your family’s diversified needs, and at the same time, you doing your best to maintain your own level of sanity.
Before you start pulling your hair out and lament over what the world is coming to, here is what you can do in the realm of energy medicine to help protect you and your family and keep them safe.
3 Reasons to Muscle Test Your Foods
- Learning to test your foods protects you from potential negative food reactions. Did you know that farmers are still allowed to use natural pesticide and synthetic chemical in their farming process as long as they are on the list approved by the USDA National Organic Standards Board (NOSB)? Even if a product is labeled organic, it is unknown what goes on during the process from farm-to-table. As cliché as it sounds, it is better to be safe than sorry.
- Learning to test your foods allows you to check which ones are healthy for you. Would you have more ease knowing that the foods you choose to buy and eat are safe before they land in your grocery cart? And eventually end up in your stomach? With the new USDA change, the rules make it harder to remove an ‘approved’ material from the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances. In addition, non-organic and synthetic ingredients used won’t be disclosed on the food label, either, thereby obscuring you from knowing what substances might be in the organic foods you buy. Knowing this one tool can help make buying organic a little bit less convoluted and trying.
- Learning to test your foods protects you and your family from food poisoning. Foods can have man-made and biological contaminants on them such as chemicals, molds, parasites, bacteria, and viruses that the physical eye cannot detect. Even more importantly is that what you don’t know can hurt you especially if the approved man-made chemical happens to be a genetically engineered vaccine allowed in organic livestock (see Organic Consumers Association’s article here for more on what other “synthetic substances” are allowed). So regardless of where you are in the world, whether you are out at a restaurant or traveling abroad, knowing this one life-saving technique can mean the difference between life and death, and in the case of food poisoning, having diarrhea and vomiting, and not having diarrhea and vomiting.
As you can see, in our world today, it isn’t enough just to arm yourself with information and vote with your dollars anymore. Learning how to test your foods is one of the best weapons you can win in this political food war. Learning to self-test gives you access to your body’s wisdom so that you can look out for number one: you. And, of course your family, too!
