Welcome to our Plant Based Nutrition section at Herbs of Cochise. We wanted to take a minute and simply explain our goals for you as an individual and our overall purpose. Our goal is to help take your personal wellness to the highest level possible. If we don’t know much about the state of health of our society there is one thing of which we can hang our hat. Animal flesh and dairy are potentially the largest contributors to death and disease in the world.
What makes plant based nutrition so unique is that you can meet most of the body’s nutritional needs absent doing damage to the body in the process. The biological make-up of plants along with their micronutrient rich properties make for the ideal fuel for the body. Wherever you may fall short in your diet is where a good quality plant supplement should step in.
The one myth that we’ve all heard about consuming meat is this. If you don’t consume meat you cannot meet your protein needs. The answer to this is quite clear yet indisputable. The most common forms of animals that mankind consumes are primarily vegetarians. Meaning the animals we eat rarely if ever consume other animals or forms of meat. There are of course exceptions to the rule. This is important for one reason and one reason only. If animals such as cows, chickens, turkeys and pigs primarily consume corn, meal, grains, grass, soy and other forms of plants, then they are not gleaning protein from animal sources. Amazingly enough they grow just fine.
What’s even more interesting to know is that ONLY a plant can take nitrogen from the air, break it into tiny particles to make amino acids and transfer that into protein. What we know as meat (aka animal flesh) is nothing more than a culmination of plant protein being properly synthesized. The protein that anyone receives from meat is simply re-purposed plant protein. We’re not disputing that you aren’t getting any protein from animals because you are. But what we are emphatically stating is that the protein that you’re getting can be acquired in a much simpler fashion minus the excessive risks of contracting an ailment. By consuming plants, you get the max for the minimum. Maximum benefits with minimal detriment (illness).
This is not about being associated with a group of individuals because of the nutritional lifestyle that you choose to follow. This is about achieving vitality and maximizing your outputs in all that you do. Whether you consume meat or not it is possible that you may have or currently consume products that contain animal byproducts. This is why it’s imperative to stay aware of what you put in your body. Micronutrient rich Plant Based Nutrition is one of the best ways to promote optimal function within the body.
We prefer what nature produces. This means that we ONLY use plants (herbs) from nature with many of them possessing a proclivity for the male and female reproductive organs (non genitalia). This naturally makes them hormonal balancing. It is important to know that herbs have no side effects and very few contraindications. As always, we still advise that you inform your doctor if you are currently prescribed medications for a medical condition before taking ANY supplements. Herbs are plants. Think of herbs just as you would a banana, an apple, an orange or grapes. They all serve as healthy food for the body. And they are all plants.
