Though our social reach is global, we are currently physically active with social work in three major areas of the world including the United Kingdom, Colombia, and the United States.
We are always seeking active members of the community who wish to initiate, support, and/or be part of local efforts in their own cities. Should you be interested in being part of a local team, please contact us here.
ON OPTIMAL HUMAN AND PLANETARY HEALTH
THROUGH THE EDUCATION AND PRACTICE
OF REVERSIVE MEDICINE
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our efforts generate an increase in local and global health, in the local and global economy, in biodiversity, in the protection of the Amazon and other “lungs of the planet and forests”, and in awareness of radical change in our societies.
Donate to Our Community Programs
WHAT WE DO
Gathering communities of 100-500 people at a time through delicious food, education, assistance, and support for the most vulnerable.
EDUCATION & WORKSHOPS
Educating and training vulnerable children and women to increase their self-sustainability and participation in society.
PLANT FOOD DRIVES
Plant-based foods and basic assistance for those in extreme vulnerable conditions such as refugees, homeless, and displaced individuals and families.
We offer a sustainable, delicious and gastronomic 100% WFPB (whole food, plant-based menu without added sugar, oil, or salt) menus. Menus are designed applying the scientific data of optimal human nutrition which provides the three macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbohydrate) and essential micronutrients for the prevention and reversal of chronic degenerative diseases through Reversive Medicine.
Our food is served using biodegradable and plastic-free containers that can be sustainably composted such as plantain or corn leaves, paper, cardboard, bamboo or other natural materials for the prevention of planetary damage, waste, and contamination, as part of Reversive Medicine.
WHY WE DO IT
Sustainability & Food Security
We teach the cultivation of plant foods through available meal ingredients for the creation of communal organic gardens grown on the basics of regenerative agriculture for the benefit of the local population.
We educate communities in regards to waste and its effects on the toxicity of the global environment, as well as the damaging effects of animal agriculture and animal consumption for human and planetary health, planetary degeneration such as global warming, demineralization of soils, and the production of greenhouse gases.
Our work focuses on children and impoverished families, street dwellers, recyclers, immigrants, and other vulnerable individuals throughout communities around the world.
We provide healthful nutrition for the most deprived and vulnerable populations and education on optimal, basic, practical, and economical lifestyle habits for prevention and reversal of chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, dementia, and diabetes among others.
Of the forces that will shape our future as a species, the greatest are our collective behaviors.
HOW WE DO IT
Evidence based human and planetary wellbeing enfascising wholism through a 360 spectrum that includes nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction, meditation, and support systems.
Demystifying optimum health and nutrition for humans, nutrition for pregnancy, children and adolescents, immune defense, and prevention and reversal of chronic degenerative diseases.
Education, technique, and preparation of optimum meals, whole food recipe development, and their impact on the body for humans of all age groups.
Production of non-genetically modified organic crops and whole food in urban areas, as well as composting, waste reduction, and zero waste for entire communities.
WHAT WE ACCOMPLISH
Through a single WFPB meal (based on unprocessed plants, no added oil, sodium, or sugar; vegan, and sustainable) for an average of 500 people, we save:
- 550,000 gallons of water
- 1,500 square feet of forest
- 20,000 pounds of grain
- 500 animal lives
- 10,000 pounds of greenhouse gases
- 18 times less land used (in acres) than someone who consumes products of animal origin or processed products.
#2. Zero Waste
Though every conscious event, we avoid throwing away approximately 465 kilos of garbage for an average of 500 people, and we:
- Avoid the dumping of 500 packages, utensils, cigarettes and bags into the sea that are currently responsible for thousands of deaths of fish and other marine species;
- Reduce the dumping of toxins into the sea, responsible for irreparable damage to marine fauna and water;
- Avoid contamination of landfills;
- Avoid the usage of plastic utensils and materials, foam, and other toxic materials;
- Feed vegetable gardens with organic composting;
- Use the seeds from the meal ingredients to plant herbs, vegetables, trees and fruit plants.
#3. No Oil
Though every conscious event, we avoid using more than 2.6 gallons (10 liters) of oil, which means we:
- Avoid the contamination of more than 2,600 gallons (10,000 liters) of clean water;
- Avoid the treatment of oil in sewage plants. One gallon costs 700 times more than the cost of treating a gallon of wastewater;
- Help reduce the risk of deaths from preventable and cardiovascular diseases;
- Reduce risks of chronic degenerative diseases such as obesity. (In 2014, more than 30% of the world’s population was overweight and 5% of deaths in the world were attributable to obesity.);
- Reduce the global economic impact of obesity estimated at US $ 2.0 billion or 2.8% of world GDP.
#4. No Sugar
Though every conscious event, we avoid the consumption of approximately 44 lbs. (20 kilograms) of sugar. The overall average consumption is approximately 6 oz. (168 grams) of sugar per day per person. In doing so, we help:
- Decrease the death rate due to obesity;
- Decrease the death rate from diabetes, another major cause of death in the world with 1.6 million in 2016;
- Reduce the risk of other health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, dental problems, pancreatic cancer, kidney failure, food addictions, and gout, among others;
- Decrease the development of diabetes and childhood obesity;
- Decrease neurological conditions and endocrine disorders including lack of concentration and learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s, depression, and anxiety;
#5. No Salt
Though every conscious event, we avoid the consumption of more than 70 oz. (2 kilos) of salt. The global population is consuming triple the recommended dietary allowance of salt. This means we help:
- Decrease the rate of cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, renal failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer, arteriosclerosis and increased blood pressure;
- Reduce the number of premature deaths (37 million a year) that could be avoided by 2025 by reducing the amount of salt consumed by 30%;
- Reduce the number of deaths from cardiovascular diseases and diabetes;
- Reduce the causes of cognitive deficit;
- Increase the correct flow of blood to the brain;
- Reduce the exploitation of natural resources for the extraction of minerals on land; less use of water and chemicals.
#6. Sustainable Food
Though every conscious event, we sow organic vegetable gardens with seeds and plants in the local community. This means we help to:
- Increase access to healthy food at no cost to local families;
- Increase the production of vitamin D in the body;
- Improve the health of the local and global community;
- Feed global communities in a sustainable way;
- Improve the local and global economy;
- Empower an unprocessed plant-based diet;
- Increase connection with land, animals and nature;
- Increase biodiversity and natural habitats;
- Increase sustainable urban agriculture;
- Teach children and their families to sow their own food;
- Increase the planting of organic plants, without chemicals, or treatments, or GMOs;
- Feed the earth with organic composting compounds;
- Empower the exchange of seeds and other healthy foods with other members of the community;
- Increase physical activity in a natural environment;
- Empower the connection with the community and family;
- Reduce stress, and increase reflection and meditation;
- Decrease hunger;
- Reduce soil depletion;
- Reduce inorganic and organic waste in landfills;
- Reduce consumerism and the use of plastics and market packages;
- Reduce global warming and greenhouse gases.
