The rapid and persistent degeneration of public and planetary health has metastasized into a global crisis, threatening our very survival.
We are a team of scientists, farmers, activists, artists, physicians, and lawyers that have come together to facilitate and catalyze a global movement and alliance dedicated to regenerating personal and public health. Our work is based on the fundamental principles that food is medicine, and that human health, mental, physical and spiritual, are directly related to societal, environmental, and planetary health.
We call this “collaboratory” Regeneration Health International (RHI), a sister organization to Regeneration International, dedicated to the principles and implementation of regenerative, organic food, farming and land use.
We believe that a global network of Regeneration Health educators, advocates, practitioners, consumers, businesses, and organizations can come together to create a qualitatively more powerful and effective synergy among movements that are currently doing good work, but that are generally working in relative isolation from one another. These include organic and regenerative food and farming networks and organizations, organic food and natural health practitioners, consumers, businesses, and environmental, environmental health, and climate movements.
Regeneration Health on an international and planetary scale, is a long-term, world-changing project. We believe that our first task as RHI is to concentrate on changing the global conversation on health and health care, utilizing and amplifying preexisting voices, media, and institutions, as well as creating new media and educational outlets and platforms. Our goal is to educate and mobilize a crucial mass of civil society and the body politic to understand that healthy, nutrient dense organic food is medicine, and that human health is directly linked to planetary health.
On a local-to-global scale, our focus is to educate and demonstrate the fact, based upon mounting evidence, that modern industrial, Big Pharma medicine, just like industrial agriculture, has failed to regenerate our health. An overemphasis on maximizing corporate profits and treating under the principle of pill for ill medicine, primarily utilizing patented pharmaceutical drugs, ignoring dietary, lifestyle, and environmental factors, has brought us to our present predicament.
The time has come to search out, publicize, and scale-up the best health and health care practices in our communities, local and abroad, highlighting the positive solutions and modalities that are actually preventing and curing sickness and chronic disease, and regenerating public health. By regenerating our health, we mean the following:
• Care for and improve our immune systems and gut microbiome
• Prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer
• Detoxify our bodies
• Exercise, and
• Maintain and elevate our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The goal is that these actions will cumulatively make ourselves, our families, and our communities, healthier, stronger, and more resilient than ever before.
In regard to identifying, publicizing, financing, and scaling-up regenerative best practices, we’re not only referring to the techniques and modalities that work best, but also to the projects, organizations, products, public policies, and financing that have the greatest potential to expand and scale these best practices up so that Regeneration Health International and regenerative practices become the norm, rather than the alternative.
Please join us as we move forward to regenerate our health and the health of the planet.
