Food as a remedy

Join us for our OSFD Odyssey and FRE2SH talks on Thursday March 23rd at 16.00 CET on zoom. Please register here for free to attend.

We are a living manifestation of nature and as such everything in nature happens through us.

Jean-Paul Close (Sustainocracy)

We are continuously being challenged to develop natural, lasting and evolutionary resilience through illnesses such as the flu or the corona virus. Other species such as bacteria, mosquitos, fungi, etc. use us as their own source of nutrition, especially when we are weakened and sick. Other of such species interact with us very positively. In fact our inner world is an ecosystem on itself with various millions of species interacting.

In order to build up and sustain our resilience individually and collectively as a species we need to use our consciousness and self-awareness to keep balance with our inner and outer environment. And this living environment is full of remedies for us to benefit from. Our pharmaceutical industries are entirely based on the wisdom of nature. A wisdom that is available to us directly through herbs, balanced diets, engagement with nature, self-awareness, etc. 


Maartje Kreike

Founder of Natuurlijk Maartje. She got her diploma in Orthomolecular food knowledge. She runs an educational food forest in the city of Eindhoven in the Netherlands where she develops workshops and training for groups, including schoolchildren. Maartje promotes a healthy lifestyle and food awareness to keep the doctor away. She believes in natural remedies through knowledge of herbs and natural food rather than medication.

Marcela Correia

Marcela and her team in Brasil started to experiment with fermentation for non alcoholic drinks. These probiotic drinks are slowly fermented with yeast and bacteria. They have a very good effect on our internal wellness. Their drinks are called Kombuchá and available in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo.

Our FRE2SH network for regenerative food initiatives has now its own website and blog.

Within Sustainocracy we share our sustainable existence by attending a set of essential values. These values cannot be seen as commodities, they are too important for that. They necessarily have to be addressed at the level of responsibility, engagement, awareness and commitment, with respectful collaboration with our natural environment. For over a decade now we experimented with our food community in Eindhoven (Netherlands). The covid period of lockdowns got us to reach out internationally to see what was happening in the rest of the world. We came across beautiful projects, initiatives, insights, etc. Together with the Online School of Food Design we decided to create a training environment for all people who wished to become active in this field.

The FRE2SH site: https://fre2sh.blog/

As we built up our network and got acquainted with the expertise that we could share with the world the FRE2SH developed into a community platform in which the training was embedded but also Masterclasses for regional development, field visits, open dialogues among the members, a video sharing environment, etc. The first website is just a start. Even the logo has been modernized. Enjoy the inspiration and feel free to share it among your own network. Hopefully FRE2SH develops into a mainstream movement, a real time economy according the principles of 4 x WIN and Sustainocracy and the environment for Health Valley´s to deploy across the world.

Podcast about 2022 and preview of 2023 from the perspective of our shared responsibilities for our essential values for sustainable human evolution.

With gratitude to Rara Radio in Eindhoven and all our partners in the diversity of clusters of attention within Sustainocracy we could make this podcast about our progress in 2022 and initiatives for 2023.
