i may be on to something

it all starts with this container
in to it goes anything we can put in
so i looked in there this morning
theres egg shells and coffee grounds and veggies like lettuce caulflower broccoli carrots tomatoes peppers beans peas bread chips swiss chard pea shells avocado seed and peelings and coffee filters etc
now its been sitting there for a few days
when you open the lid it smells a little
theres this juice in the bottom
im sure this is reaming with lots of bacteria

this stuff is dumped into a 5 gallon bucket with about 30 holes in it
that is buried in my garden walkway
i dump all this stuff from my kitchen composter into this bucket
spread at different levels are layers of newspapers
i try to keep it all wet
all through this stuff is lots of wiggling compost worms
eating and pooping
its the worm poop that im after
its the richest compost to use on your garden
i cover it with a concrete block

inside this finished compost forms
which looks just like coffee beans that have been ground to a fine powder

it smells good
im sure it tastes good
i admit
it does taste good
just ask me and ms b
we did a taste test
:) :)

so this is where this story starts
with the compost

it is full of all these good bacteria and fungi that the plants love to have in the soil
put them in the soil and the plant grows better

so it is with humans
we need lots of good bacteria in our gut

things like taking antibiotics and eating the wrong diet and over cleaning things in our house
all this wipes out or changes our normal gut flora or bacteria

each of us have a unique gut bacteria that lives in us

it can determine how healthy we are
inflammatory diseases
it maybe even influences alzheimers

as i go to visit mr h in the nicu
i have to take off my watch and alzheimers bracelet
i try to take off my ring but it wont come off sometimes
i wet my hands
i squirt this stuff with disinfectant on my hands
scrub for several minutes
then rinse if off
then i add a squirt of this disinfectant stuff onto my hands
i looked to see what it has in it
it has chlor hexi mega sgrol sigma delta killer stuff in it
booze i mean ethyl alcohol or ethanol 140 proof

i am sure if you culture my hands and arms that nothing will grow now

i guess thats the way you want it so mr h wont get any viruses or bad germs

its noted here the biggest risks to patients are from the staff and from germs inside the hospital
the real bad ones that are resistant to all our antibiotics live there

so i look at my nails
sometimes i have been working in my garden playing in my soil and my compost
i go home and shower good
i use only good ole regular soap like grandma use to make
i use ivory soap
sometimes when i look at my nails i see some residual compost and garden soil under my nails

dont do it i say
dont do it i say
even though those germs will be good for him
if added to his repertoire of gut flora
i rinse well and move on
without breaking any rules

when you are 3 like ms b is now is about when you have developed your unique gut bacteria
that will help determine your future health

thank goodness ms b got inoculated before her third birthday
it actually started when she was a toddler while visiting the country n
she manged to taste some good compost and garden soil
i felt better after that

dont worry mr h well take care of you
well give you the good germs one day
your sister and i will

i take the time to clean my nails real good
off to hold and visit mr h
knowing he would do better if i broke the rule

it seems that all that cleaning we do at home is not real good for us
its changing up our normal gut flora or bacteria that we should have

a bacteria family is increasing inside of us that is related to eg childhood obesity
some of those chemicals
well they cant be good for you

maybe instead of the 5 second rule we should all change to the alternative
count to 10 real slow rule

we only use soap
regular soap and cleaners with vinegar or ammonia with lemon or lime or orange in them

we dont kill too many germs and we dont kill ourself with all those ingredients we cant spell or pronounce

we now know why farmers and ranchers and their families tend to be so healthy
they have less allergies and less asthma also
