There’s a proverb that goes something like . . .
“Let your food be your medicine and your medicine your food.”
My name’s Peter Hood and for the past 20 years I’ve prepared and cooked food exclusively for children.
I’ve found that over this period lifestyles have changed and with it, eating habits. Today our children face two major obstacles. The first, and not only in the poor countries of the world, is malnutrition. The second – obesity. In both situations there’s a deficiency of vitamins and minerals, anti-oxidants, essential amino and non-essential amino acids that the body so desperately needs.
The Moringa oleifera plant, unknown to many, has incredible potential. I believe that it could help end world malnutrition. I doesn’t say this lightly . . . just look where malnutrition is most prevalent.
Now see where Moringa grows . . .
A dear friend whose desire is to help the suffering children of Zimbabwe, gave me some Moringa, otherwise known as ‘God’s miracle tree’.
I must digress for a moment . . .
After a chance encounter with a Zimbabwean Pastor my friend Kurt,also a Pastor, was invited to go to Zimbabwe and help their poverty stricken community. Kurt and his wife did just that. They packed-up everything and went to Zimbabwe. There they have shown the locals how to grow and farm Moringa and how, if it’s taken daily as a food supplement, improves both their health and quality of life.
Three years on and the once struggling community where the Bihlmaier’s now live, is both vibrant and healthy. Smiling children, a small church school and working farm now form the village’s nucleus.
I was completely blown away. So impressed was I at this, I’ve promised to tell the world about Moringa and what it can do.
Not missionary material myself, I’ll tell the world about Moringa in a different way. I’ll research and write about it.
My goal over the next couple of years, or for as long as I’m allowed, is to make themoringablog the foremost repository of information on the plants Moringa oleifera and Moringa stenopetala. No, I didn’t say suppository though I may need one from time to time.
So join me on a journey of discovery. Together lets strive to improve the quality of health and life of those around us. I can’t do this on my own. I need both your help and input.
The little research I’ve done so far has shown how the Moringa Tree can be used in a variety of ways. Not only for its health benefits which are staggering, but also in agricultural production (as a spray) and in the farming of livestock. (Supplementing the animal’s feed)
In both cases yields were increased.
These are just two of the areas I’d like to explore, but if there are others you’d like me to write about feel free to – Contact Me.
