Today we have developed a number of ways to stay healthy enjoying modern life, there are health supplements, food supplements, health equipments that use advanced modern health care technology, yet somewhere we feel that they are not complete, they are lacking somewhere else we wouldn’t have required any further research on the subject, there was need to develop new health supplements which were better and more effective then there earlier versions.
In last few years, we have somewhere realized the importance of nature, that is why we have added a new word in health dictionaries called “organic” which only means 100% natural, something which grows naturally, which is free from unnecessary human interaction. Sometimes it even seems ridiculous that when we have had natural products we blindly used technology to make them look good, feel good, changed characteristics to suit our requirements and now when almost all products are using this modern technology we feel have somewhere realized that natural products i.e. organic products are better even best, they may or may not look good, taste good but they were worked excellently with our body system, its functions, its optimum functioning.
Are Organic Foods, Herbs, Vegetable & Fruits Viable Options Today
Are We Really Getting Enough Supply of Healthy Organic Products to Meet Present Market Demand
Today we see that demand for organic products is rising, there carry a cost which is much higher then the same products without the organic tag. We can see that today market is flooded with a number of organic food supplements, fruits and vegetables etc. Are we really getting enough organic products in this supply of organic tagged supplements or we have developed a new market for fake products.
We must understand that production is limited in organic farming, even the crop takes more time to get ready, then there are a number of other problems which are inherent, some of which can only be handled using solutions provided by modern science. Yet, we find that on one hand we are still misusing technology to interfere with the nature i.e., we are overusing chemical fertilizers, pesticides, insecticide to get more output and on the other we are looking for safe, natural alternatives which we believe carry best solutions for our modern health concerns.
May be we’ve realized, the importance of organic fruits and vegetables, if we have money we can buy any quantity from the markets, but the question is can we really grow enough organic fruits, vegetables and herbs to meet present market demand without actually compromising anywhere.
Today we see that almost everyone from modern health care system is advocating the tremendous benefits of fruits and vegetables, even natural home based remedies require pure natural products and it is also well known that today it is not feasible/possible to feed everyone with organic food as there is not enough land and other resources available for farming.
What Is The Solution in these Conditions to Stay Healthy Naturally
We cannot change everything as things that are working around us are not working independently but inter-dependently, so in order to change the one, we have to change the other and thus we won’t be able to change anything as it will be confusing. It is better to do something in the right direction which can help us to reach somewhere near the solution. The best solution for those who have some time and space, is to start “organic gardening” in the space around there home or they can plant some trees around there house or anywhere where there is some space for one or more plants or trees or even in small pots in a garden.
This will help in many ways, first it will benefit those who live a sedentary life to do something actively, second it will also release some mental stress as our mind gets absorbed in other tasks which aren’t today part of our modern lifestyle, third we can use organic waste of our home as manure in these plants, fourth it will add a tiny bit of greenery, will provide a bit of clean breathing air and if everyone of us tries to do something then we’ll definitely help improve health and genuine organic supply.
Anyway this article isn’t against anyone, it is just a honest opinion, which each one of us who are looking for alternative ways to stay healthy and fit should should understand, staying healthy isn’t a state of isolation from surroundings, its a state of enjoying a healthy surrounding in tune with the nature, which is only possible when we not only look for ways to improve our own health but also think about our planet, our surrounding, nature.

Organic Vs Non Organic : Learn how organic is natural i.e. it supports the whole ecosystem, when we didn’t had this modern farming technology, everything used to be organic. Learn more at National Geographic’s article titled “Organic Vegetables Vs. Non Organic Vegetables” under Green Living.
Research on Benefits of Organic Foods : This is a news article published in online edition of FoxNew. I’ll like to quote some text related to modifying DNA in genetically modified foods using a unnatural processes (processes that do not take place naturally in this order or way).
“By definition, the DNA of genetically modified organisms has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally, according to the World Health Organization. Food producers cite the advantages of genetic modification as increased crop protection, disease resistance, and herbicide tolerance. I don’t know about you, but the idea of putting anything unnaturally altered into my body because it makes life easier for conventional food producers is not terribly appealing.”
