Ideally the food we eat is grown on healthy soil rich in bacteria and fungi that is absorbed through our green leafy vegetables. These bacteria and fungi are integral to our digestion, our hormonal balance, and to every system that supports our day-to-day functions. Proper communication within these systems is what dictates our mood, our immunity, our quality of life, and so much more.
In their developing years, while children's bodies are still adapting and learning to defend itself against external environmental stressors, they are less equipped to cleanse their bodies of toxic overload unlike adults.

The top priority for every kitchen should be to keep all surfaces clean. Doing so deters small outdoor bugs, insects, flies, and even rodents, from making their way in to your house and having a go at unseen bits of food that may have inadvertently made its way under your toaster.
Spending time in nature, walking in the woods, hiking in mountains, swimming in large bodies of water, even gardening, are all crucial activities that support our immune health as well. By immersing ourselves in as many diverse environments as we can, we train our bodies to adapt to a multitude of microbes that live in these natural settings.
