CSA : Community Shared Agriculture

The term Community Shared Agriculture was coined in the early 1980s.  These programs run by farmers or a group of farmers are a way to directly connect the producers with the consumers.  In short: people buy “shares” of a farm’s harvest in advance and then receive a portion of the crops as they’re harvested.  Knowing where your food comes from and how it is grown is so important in a world where GMOs and toxic pesticides are common place.   Fisherville’s Finest started their CSA program in the fall of 2011 with only 6 members.  We now have over 40 members and run consecutive 10 week sessions from April until Christmas each year.  We offer 2 box sizes; small for 1 or 2 people and large for a family.  Our members enjoy the various veggies we grow including grape tomatoes, beef tomatoes, English cucumbers, green beans, lettuce, kale, spinach, radicchio, fennel, green onions, celery etc.   We also offer at an extra cost free range eggs and GMO free pasture raised chicken.  We will be starting our next 10 week CSA share program April 2019. If you are interested in getting fresh organically grown produce each week you can contact me at for pricing and to sign up.

Today I thought I would write about one of my favourite things…broccoli sprouts.  When the days are cold and dark and not much else is growing they are one thing that you can grow and have fresh on your kitchen counter all winter long.  With such little effort you can have amazing nutrition to add to your soup, to top a salad or even add to your smoothie.  Broccoli sprouts are part of the cruciferous family and have many phytonutrients the most famously talked about being, sulforaphane.  Sulforaphane is an antioxidant and as such is beneficial in preventing cancer and has also shown benefit in neurological issues such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s as well as ADHD.  This link talks about these 5 star broccoli sprouts    I order my organic broccoli seeds from Mumm’s sprouting.  They have instructions on their website on how to sprout but here it is in a nut shell 1. find a clean mason jar 2. add 3-6 tbsps of the broccoli seeds (depending how much you think you will use) 3. put enough water into the mason jar to cover the seeds and cover the jar with a piece of cheese cloth secured by an elastic 4. let sit overnight 5. drain water off the seeds through the cheese cloth 6. rince with water once daily until sprouts are ready in  3-5 days.  Chat next week.

JANUARY 1 2019

Happy New Year everyone!!!! My New Years Resolution this year is to write a weekly blog post.  So here we go!!!! I’ve spent a bit of time thinking about what these blog posts would be about and finally decided that it will be a little about everything – the goings on of the Canadian Ginger Co. and Fisherville’s Finest, what we are planting, harvesting and our CSA. Also as the time gets closer we will let you know when you can buy our Ontario grown ginger in Longo’s stores in the GTA (we are still pinching ourselves about that development).  I think this blog will also include health updates and info.  For those of you that don’t know I have struggled with my health for the past while and after a few rogue diagnoses I finally was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune condition called Dematomyositis.  I am currently doing well with no medication and keep myself on track with a clean whole food diet.  I do and always will view this illness as a blessing as it has set me on a path of healing and knowledge acquiring that would otherwise not have happened.  I am currently enrolled in and loving a Registered Holistic Nutrition program and am set to graduate summer of 2020.  Having said that, though I read and learn daily I am not a doctor so any info I give in this blog is either something I have read or learned from the school of hard knocks through the journey of this disease. It is not my intent for this blog to start a battlefield of beliefs, therefore I want to add this disclaimer: any health info/insight is only my opinion.   Chat next week

Our CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) Program

Fisherville Greenhouses, Quality Produce Fresh from the Farm


We have been growing the finest grape and beefsteak tomatoes for the past 6 years. In 2010 we started growing a variety of other vegetables and now offer a summer and winter CSA harvest basket program.

Our farm focuses on growing a variety of quality produce with minimal environmental impact.

Nutritionally, fresh local produce is surpassed by nothing else.  Receiving fresh local vegetables on a weekly basis throughout the summer and a biweekly basis throughout the winter enables you to have healthy choices to offer your family year round.

Although we will do our best to provide you with a wide variety of vegetables, farming and weather can be unpredictable especially in winter.  This can on occasion mean that the value of your box may be less than you paid for.  However we will always try to grow more for you than you paid and a bountiful harvest can bring great reward.

A typical biweekly box may include:

  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Fresh cut mixed salad greens
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes*
  • Peppers*
  • Cucumbers*
    *available until December

12 Turmeric Benefits: Superior to Medications?

12 turmeric benefits - Dr. AxeTurmeric (Curcuma longa), the main spice in the Indian dish curry, is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. Turmeric benefits include so many healing properties that currently there are over 10,000 peer-reviewed articles published proving turmeric benefits, especially one of its renowned healing compounds, curcumin.This puts turmeric on top of the list as one of the most frequently mentioned medicinal herbs in all of science. The next most popular studied herbs include garlic, cinnamon, ginseng, ginger and milk thistle.
Turmeric comes from the Curcuma longa plant, which grows in India and other Southeast Asian countries. The dried root of the Curcuma longa plant is ground into the distinctive yellow turmeric powder. There are several chemical compounds found in turmeric, known as curcuminoids. The active substance in turmeric is curcumin.
Of the 10,000+ studies referencing ≈, the most interesting finding is that when it’s compared to conventional medicine, turmeric benefits equal that of many pharmaceutical medications. In fact, a number of studies have even reported that using curcumin is more advantageous than certain prescription drugs.

Areas of Your Health that Curcumin Benefits May Apply?

When examining the research, turmeric benefits go beyond that of these 12 kinds of conditions and treatments:

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Antidepressants (Prozac)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Anticoagulants (Aspirin)
  • Pain killers
  • Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
  • Arthritis medications
  • Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
  • Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
  • Steroids
  • Skin Care
  • Obesity

Now let’s jump deeper into the research on turmeric benefits at potentially reversing specific diseases.

12 Turmeric Benefits that Beat Medications

Although the list is much longer, we’ve selected 12 conditions and their treatments where drugs pale in comparison to turmeric extracts, in potentially reversing disease. As you read this report, keep in mind that one of the most powerful advantages curcumin has over the traditional medical approach is the lack of side effects.

1. Anticoagulants/Antiplatelets

Medical intervention generally includes the following medications to slow and prevent blood clotting:

  • Aspirin
  • Clopidogrel (Plavix)
  • Diclofenac
  • Enoxaparin (Lovenox)
  • Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others)
  • Naproxen
  • Warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

Unfortunately, for people with conditions that are treated by these drugs (i.e. deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), this approach may not always be the wisest decision. Ibuprofen overdose is one such common problem. In addition to common side effects like excessive bleeding and hemorrhage, the risks associated with anticoagulants abound and include everything from back pain to headaches to difficulty breathing. (1)

Turmeric, on the other hand, has relatively no known side effects unless taken in extremely excessive amounts.

Additionally, ever since several groundbreaking studies in the mid-1980s, the curcumin in turmeric has been suggested by researchers as actually being a better option for those with vascular thrombosis. (2)

2. Antidepressants

Although few studies have been conducted on humans, dozens of research trials have proven that turmeric benefits include being especially effective in correcting depression symptoms in laboratory animals.

To address this issue, the journal Phytotherapy Research published the results of an amazing, innovative study this past year.  The study took 60 volunteers diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD), such as manic depression (bipolar disorder), and split the group to determine how patients treated by curcumin fared against fluoxetine (Prozac) and a combination of the two. (3)

Not only was it discovered that all patients tolerated curcumin well, but they discovered curcumin was as effective as Prozac in managing depression.

According to the authors, “This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe therapy for treatment in patients with mild depression.”

3. Anti-inflammatories

Arguably, the most powerful aspect of curcumin is its ability to control inflammation.

The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds and found that aspirin and ibuprofen are least effective, while curcumin is among the most effective anti-inflammatory compounds in the world. (4)

This news should have reached every household in the world after the study was conducted because inflammation puts people at risk for almost every disease process known to man.

Diseases today such as cancer, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, high cholesterol and chronic pain can be the result of inflammation.

The anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin have also been studied as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. At this point, evidence for turmeric’s effects on Alzheimer’s patients is inconclusive; it’s not certain that turmeric can prevent or treat the disease. However, perhaps further research might result in the development of future treatments. (5)

As you will see below in several other articles related to chronic illness, keep this in the back of your mind: Turmeric’s key to disease reversal may be its ability to keep inflammation at bay.

4. Skin Condition Treatments

Turmeric benefits include anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that have proven effective in treating skin conditions. Turmeric benefits for skin include speeding up wound healing; calming the pores to decrease acne and acne scarring; and controlling psoriasis flares. (6) Try my Turmeric Face Mask for Glowing Skin.

Turmeric can stain the skin and it may cause an allergic reaction. Do a patch test by applying a dime-size amount to your forearm. Then wait 24–48 hours to check for any reaction before applying turmeric to your face.

5. Arthritis management

Because curcumin is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing characteristics, a study was conducted on 45 rheumatoid arthritis patients to compare the benefits of curcumin in turmeric to the arthritis drug Diclofenac sodium, which put people at risk of developing leaky gut and heart disease.

The study split these volunteers into three groups: curcumin treatment alone, Diclofenac sodium alone, and a combination of the two. The results of the trial were eye-opening:

The curcumin group showed the highest percentage of improvement in overall [Disease Activity Score] scores and these scores were significantly better than the patients in the diclofenac sodium group. More importantly, curcumin treatment was found to be safe and did not relate with any adverse events. Our study provides the first evidence for the safety and superiority of curcumin treatment in patients with active RA, and highlights the need for future large-scale trials to validate these findings in patients with RA and other arthritic conditions.

Published by Phytotherapy Research in 2012, the results of this study have encouraged more human research to evaluate the amazing effects curcumin-rich plants like turmeric have on people suffering from various different types of arthritis. (7)

6. Cancer treatment

Of all the various topics scientists have tackled in regards to curcumin and disease reversal, cancer (of various types) is one of the most thoroughly researched topics. In the words of global authorities like Cancer Research UK: (8)

A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

A July 2017 study by researchers at Baylor Scott & White Research Institute found that curcumin may even be able to break through chemo-resistance in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), an aggressive form of pancreatic cancer. (9) Doctors commonly face the challenge of patients initially responding to chemotherapeutic drugs and then later developing resistance. Curcumin appears to re-sensitize these patients’ cancer cells to the drugs, although the exact mechanisms of curcumin’s chemo-sensitization remain ambiguous. Study author, Ajay Goel, PhD, director of gastrointestinal research and translational genomics and oncology at Baylor Scott & White Research Institute stated: (10)

Food-based botanicals have the potential to restore a healthier gene expression in patients but without the toxicity of certain drugs.

Bottom line: Turmeric benefits include working incredibly well to help naturally treat cancer as well as breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer. It may also help with chemotherapy resistance in patients with PDAC.

7. Diabetes management

For lowering blood sugar and reversing insulin resistance, there’s arguably no better natural treatment than adding turmeric into your diet.

In 2009, Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications published a study out of Auburn University that explored how supplementing with turmeric can help reverse diabetes. (11) The study discovered that curcumin in turmeric is literally 400 times more potent than Metformin (a common diabetes drug) in activating AMPK which improves insulin sensitivity which can help reverse Type 2 Diabetes.

In addition to correcting the causes of diabetes, curcumin has also been proven to help reverse many of the issues related to insulin resistance and hyperglycemia.

Take, for instance, diabetic neuropathy and retinopathy. One of the most common complications of diabetes is damaged blood vessels, which cause blindness. A study found that supplementing with curcumin can delay this horrible complication of diabetes because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. (12)

8. Obesity

A study published in the journal Biofactors showed that curcumin can help promote weight loss. (13) The researchers found that the anti-inflammatory properties in curcumin were effective at suppressing the inflammatory processes of obesity, therefore helping to reduce obesity and its “adverse health effects.”

9. Gastrointestinal treatments

Oftentimes, people with digestive and stomach complaints become intolerant to medical interventions because the stomach flora is already compromised and drugs can literally tear up the mucosal lining.

An in-depth analysis of all the studies evaluating curcumin’s ability to manage inflammatory bowel disease (IBS, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis) found that many patients were able to stop taking their prescribed corticosteroids because their condition improved so dramatically by taking curcumin! (14)

For many patients with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) corticosteroids reduce their pain symptoms, but damage the intestinal lining over time actually making the condition worse. (15)

However, supplementing with curcumin did not have these side effects and, because of its anti-inflammatory properties, actually helped heal the gut and supported the growth of good bacteria (probiotics).

10. Cholesterol regulators

One of the reasons heart disease is such a problem in the U.S. is that people are developing pre-diabetes (high blood sugar) at an alarming rate.

In turn, diabetics and non-diabetics alike are suffering from a common complication called oxidative stress, which damages the inside of blood vessels. Because of this damage to the arteries, cholesterol begins to build up to patch up the damaged areas, which leads to high levels of LDL cholesterol.

Traditionally, statin drugs (like Lipitor) are widely known to harm the kidneys and liver and cause a number of deadly side effects.  They do bring cholesterol down, but they never address the actual cause, which is oxidative stress that is caused by high blood sugar levels and inflammation.

Thankfully, medical doctors are becoming more and more aware of the dangerous side effects of statin-drugs and prescribing natural alternatives like curcumin and fish oil instead.

A study done by Drugs in R & D found that curcumin was equal to, or more effective than, diabetes medications at reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the treatment of high cholesterol. (16)

Studies like these are leading pharmaceutical companies to try to design a synthetic form of curcumin that, unfortunately, will not work as well as the real thing.

11. Painkillers

One of the more widely accepted properties of curcumin in scientific communities is its ability to manage pain.

Just this past year the European Journal of Pharmacology published research that discovered curcumin naturally activates the opioid system in diabetic rats. Typically manipulated by drugs, this natural process serves as the body’s inherent pain-relieving response. (17)

Not being limited to diabetic pain conditions, an interesting study also published late last year gives us a clue as to the wide array of pain conditions that can be treated by curcumin.

Take, for instance, severe burns. Typically, burn victims are treated with dangerous opioids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories. However, because of its anti-inflammatory benefits, U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research suggests that, curcumin should be used to treat burns instead of these conventional medications. (18)

The trend should be becoming clear at this point. Therapeutic use of turmeric and other curcumin-rich plants are displacing conventional medical treatments and proving it’s a legitimate natural painkiller.

12. Steroids

Lastly, we’ll take a look at how turmeric benefits the many conditions normally treated by corticosteroids, such as:

  • Psoriasis
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Scleroderma
  • Chronic pain              

In a 1999 breakthrough clinical study, it was found that curcumin has the ability to cure chronic inflammation of the eye. (19) Typically this condition was only treated with steroids, but today it’s common for medical doctors who practice functional medicine to prescribe curcumin instead.

What cannot be overstated, however, is that although statistically “comparable” to steroids in managing and reversing chronic disease, “The lack of side effects with curcumin is its greatest advantage compared with corticosteroids,” as stated by the authors in the above study out of K.G. Medical College.

To give you a sense of the amount of suffering alleviated by curcumin, the following is a sample of steroid side effects listed by the UK’s National Health Services (NHS): (20)

  • Acne
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Cataracts
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Diabetes onset
  • Glaucoma
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Increased appetite (oftentimes leading to increased weight)
  • Indigestion
  • Insomnia
  • Kidney and thyroid issues
  • Mood disturbances (including aggression, irritability, and rapid mood swings mimicking bipolar disorder)
  • Muscle weakness
  • Nausea
  • Risk of infection
  • Stunted growth in children
  • Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat)
  • Thinning skin (leading to easy bruising)

Ultimately, when taking into account the large amount of deadly complications these drugs put your body at risk for, it is easy to see how taking therapeutic curcumin is superior to most medicines.

If you have any of the diseases above, you will want to consider this natural approach first. For those of you who aren’t sick, taking turmeric will serve you well as a preventative measure. (21)

Turmeric Side Effects

What are the side effects of turmeric? Some people have reported allergic reactions to turmeric, especially after skin exposure. Typically this is experienced as a mild, itchy rash. In addition, high doses of turmeric have been observed to cause:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Increased risk of bleeding
  • Increased liver function tests
  • Hyperactive gallbladder contractions
  • Hypotension (lowered blood pressure)
  • Uterine contractions in pregnant women
  • Increased menstrual flow

People taking certain medications should also be careful when using turmeric in their food or supplementing with it. Turmeric may interfere with anti-coagulants like aspirin, clopidogrel and warfarin. It also can affect medications such as non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. As with any herb or supplement, use as directed.

If you’re in the position where you must be on prescription medications, don’t discount the need to include ample amounts of fresh, organic turmeric in your diets because it will help reduce the adverse affects of the medicine.

A study that was published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology describes how combining curcumin with prednisolone (a steroid) effectively reduces the side effects of this dangerous medication. (22)

Turmeric Recipes

You may be wondering how to use turmeric. One of my favorite recipes to incorporate turmeric benefits in your diet is turmeric tea “liquid gold.”

Also, consuming turmeric eggs for breakfast and curried carrot soup is an excellent way to get more turmeric in your diet.

Amazingly, anti-arthritic activity and a marked reduction in steroid toxicity was seen when supplementing with curcumin.

At the end of the day, the research speaks for itself and we cannot think of one reason why EVERYONE shouldn’t be taking some form of turmeric every day.

Whether as a supplement or a spice to flavor your food, you will certainly be satisfied with turmeric benefits for your body!

Curcumin/Turmeric Supplements 

So, how do you take turmeric? Along with adding turmeric into your diet, you may also consider taking it or curcumin in supplement form. I personally recommend consuming a CO2 extracted form of turmeric.

Also, according to a study, published in Planta Medica, taking turmeric in combination with black pepper, which contains piperine, improves turmeric absorbability throughout the entire body. They added 20mg of piperine to 2,000mg turmeric, and it increased the bioavailability of turmeric 154 percent! (23)

How Ginger Is Used In Traditional & Modern Medicine

Traditional uses for ginger

Ginger has so many uses that I thought I would devote a blog post to listing them. In addition to its properties as an antifungal, ginger has been shown to be effective against osteoarthritis, motion sickness and morning sickness. It has long been used to improve digestion, treat nausea, and reduce the inflammation that can be associated with a Candida overgrowth. Let’s learn some more about this incredible natural remedy!

Ginger is not actually a plant, but rather the root, more specifically the rhizome, of another plant named Zingiber officinale. It is native to Asia where evidence suggests that it has been in use, both for medicinal and cooking purposes, for over 4,000 years. It is a beige-colored stem that sticks up about 12 inches above ground, and it has a long and narrow green leaves with white and yellow flowers. The active ingredients in ginger, those which give it its medicinal properties, are volatile oils which can represent anywhere from 1% to 3% of the entire weight of the root. Among these active ingredients are shogaols and gingerols.

Traditional Uses For Ginger

Ever since its discovery, ginger has proven to be very useful to Asian and Arabic cultures. It is an ingredient in countless recipes, but has also been used for centuries for its medicinal and antifungal properties. In various cultures, ginger has been used to treat common ailments such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, flu, diarrhea, arthritis, colic, and even painful menstruation.

These medicinal properties have often been exploited through the use of ginger-based drinks. For example, tea made with ginger root is a common, traditional remedy for a cold, while ginger beer and ginger ale are still drunk to help ease indigestion. In Burma, ginger is mixed with another local plant and consumed as a preventative measure against the flu. People in India make a paste out of ginger and apply it to their temples to treat a headache. They also eat it to treat a common cold, and mix it with salt and lemon to use against nausea.

Elsewhere in Asia, ginger is used by Indonesians in a number of remedies designed to treat rheumatism and fatigue, and control poor eating habits. People in the Congo make a juice from ginger mixed with sap from a mango tree and use it to treat a wide variety of conditions. In Nepal, people often use ginger to reduce the symptoms of a cold.

No other country has been more prolific in herbal remedies than China. Here, a simple drink made by mixing ginger in water with brown sugar is used to relieve the symptoms of the common cold. A special omelet made of scrambled eggs and diced ginger root is consumed to treat coughing. A type of dried candy is made using ginger fermented in plum juice, which was also used to treat coughing. Lastly, ginger is also used by the Chinese to treat inflammation and arthritis. Ginger is a safe option to add to your list of anti-Candida foods and integrate into your diet.

Ginger In Medical Research

Ginger has been shown to have several medicinal benefits, although more research is needed in many of these areas. As with many other natural remedies that pharmaceutical companies are unable to patent, there has simply not been enough funding devoted to research on ginger. This means many of the research studies available are from Asian universities, smaller, and sometimes poorly designed.


In a 2001 double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers examined 261 patients who all had osteoarthritis of the knee. (1) They found that the patients who took ginger regularly experienced  significantly less knee pain after 6 weeks. The only side effects exhibited were minor stomach upsets.

Another studies have found that ginger can reduce inflammation in the colon, as well as in various arthritic and musculoskeletal conditions. One recent in vitro study, on cells from patients with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, found that ginger extract reduced the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. (2) In fact, it had a similar effect to that of betamethasone, an anti-inflammatory steroid medication.

Motion sickness

There is research to suggest that ginger is effective at dealing with nausea such as that brought on by motion sickness. One such study, looking specifically at seasickness found that eating 1g of ginger “reduced the tendency to vomiting and cold sweating” among naval cadets. (3)

Morning sickness

Multiple studies among pregnant women have highlighted the potential for ginger to be used for morning sickness. (4) In general, studies have shown a decrease in nausea and instances of vomiting among women who took ginger, as opposed to those who took the placebo. However, it should be noted there is some evidence that ginger may be mutagenic, so it should be used with caution, for no more than a few days in a row, and preferably under the supervision of your healthcare professional.

Since ginger is effective at relieving nausea, it was hoped that it could also be used as a preventative measure to reduce nausea experienced after surgery and other medical procedures. However, in this instance, ginger proved to be no more effective than a placebo.

Future Uses For Ginger

Most of the research into ginger over the past few decades has focused on its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to reduce nausea. These have been confirmed by various research studies into inflammatory conditions like arthritis, and nausea-related conditions like motion sickness and morning sickness. Ginger has been categorized as “generally recognized as safe” by the FDA and is commonly used for the conditions listed above. However, other research studies have suggested that there may be wider uses for ginger.

Several traditional uses for ginger are still being tested, as some of them have shown promising initial results. For example, some cultures have used ginger as preventive medication against heart disease, and preliminary studies suggest that this might indeed be the case. It is possible that ginger might lower cholesterol and prevent blood from clotting. This would, in turn, prevent blood vessels from getting blocked and significantly reduce the chances of a stroke or a heart attack. Even so, more research is necessary in order to determine if ginger is effective or safe for people with heart disease.
