The whole secret sauce of Farmer's Footprint is going to be to
tell the narrative of healing at every level. We cannot extract the
human health story from the planetary story anymore. It's so
intermixed; you literally cannot create human health if we don't
solve these agricultural systemic issues. In the same way, we can't
solve the agricultural problems unless we come to understand the
value of human life and start to reallocate the valuation of food
correctly. It's really a failure to understand the value of life
that's leading to the human behaviors that are driving the
agricultural decisions that we're making. - Zach Bush

ION*Gut Health is a
gut-strengthening, brain-boosting mineral supplement sourced from
60-million-year-old soil that naturally supports microbiome
balance. The active ingredient, Terrahydrite®, has been shown to
support the integrity of tight junctions in the gut lining, even in
the face of damage from toxins such as glyphosate.
ION*Gut Health goes beyond other supplements to support your
wellbeing at a foundational level. By laying that foundation with
ION*Gut Health, you aren’t just supplementing; you're
Keeping Your Gut Healthy
It’s a critical barrier to keep strong so that a vibrant
microbiome can flourish. Good health depends entirely on gut health
because a lot more than digestion happens in the gut. It’s also
where proper immune system function begins and the majority of our
neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, are created.
Say yes to ION*Gut
Health and you are saying yes to optimal gut-brain
connectivity and feel-good transmissions, protection from the
toxins we face every day in our air, water, and food, immune
function, digestive wellness, and supported gluten tolerance.

Power Quotes From The
How We Are Failing One Another
"We are failing to see the value of human life and so we behave
as we do. So, of course, all of our mistakes are coming out of the
failure of that Golden Rule. If we really loved ourselves then we
would treat our neighbors so much more differently. Sadly, whether
farmer, physician, patient, chemical company CEO or commodities and
crop owner, we're not loving ourselves and so in the end,
FarmersFootprint.us is a story about us. It's a story about if we
don't start looking at each other's eyes and acknowledging the
miracle of life that's within each of us, then we're going to keep
making mistakes. There's no scientist that's going to prove our way
out of this; it is a fault of valuation and that valuation isn't of
a crop or of a soil - it's of the human standing on that soil."
- Zach Bush MD
If Children's Health Is So Important...
"If children's health is so important, then why does school food
look like school food? If children are important than why does
their school look like it does; why does it look like a jail so
much of the time? Why do we sequester them away from nature 8 hours
a day instead of putting them in nature 8 hours a day? If children
are really valuable souls in exquisitely miraculous bodies, why
would anybody give them a Coke? Why would anybody hand them a
high-fructose corn syrup-laden anything? Why would anybody put them
in an environment where they can't connect to the fresh air but one
with mold and old HVAC systems and then traffic them Grade D meat
that's dying at the time of harvest?" - Zach Bush
Solving The Crisis For Human & Planetary Health
"If your farm is inundated with weeds and pests, then it's
because your rate of repair within that plant system has dissolved,
the biophotonic energy within your soil has been depleted but if we
regenerate the biophotonic energy within the soil i.e. the
relationship between the sun, soil, and plant, with resilience and
energy, then we're going to get to this point of extraordinary
explosive delivery of health and vitality. The soil will become so
vibrant that the plants that grow in it are so resistant to any
problems and the weeds that have been terrorizing for two
generations are gone within a single season because you've created
a biodiverse, biophotonic energy within that soil system. When we
talk about organic vs regenerative organic, what we're really
looking at is the vitality of life between sun and soil and how can
you integrate carbon cycling at all of those levels to speed up the
vitality of life within that system. If you do that, not only do
you solve for human health crisis but also planetary health
crisis." - Zach Bush MD
