We are a small scale independent organic mixed market garden based at Gear Farm, St Martin on the Lizard Peninsula in West Cornwall and we produce a wide range of herbs, salad leaves and vegetables for local health food stores, farm shops, gastropubs, hotels, restaurants, box schemes and holiday accommodation. All our produce is grown without the use of insecticides, fungicides and chemical fertilizer and our entire process of production is accredited by the Biodynamic Agricultural Association of Great Britain. The great flavour of our produce comes from growing varieties which taste the best rather than perform well in terms of uniformity, yield or shelf life and we grow them in a well maintained healthy soil enriched with lots of natural fertility, liquid seaweed extracts and mineral rich comfrey juice.

Exotic Herbs Which May Help Contol And Help Reverse Diabetes…

We do not recommend ever utilizing herbs for medicinal purposes without discussing them with your doctor. Creative Health Institutes twenty-one day diabetes reversal program is based in our belief that a living body needs living food and when it is supplied a variety of living foods it will respond and heal itself.  We considered, it wise for you to refer to your family doctor before proceeding to enter into any treatments.

Bitter Gourd appears to have a very positive affect on keeping sugar spikes down and insulin levels stable. Many diabetics consume bitter gourd as a regularly as part of their diet. Bitter gourd is also been shown to have many other  health benefits.

Bitter gourd is a tropical vegetable, which is cultivated mainly in the Asian and African countries. It is also known by the name of ‘Karela’ and has a rough, warty skin. As the name suggests, the vegetable is bitter in taste and has a skin that is dark green in color.

Diabetics usually consume bitter gourd in the form of a powder or juice, but it is also used in traditional Asian dishes. The standard protocol is to consume bitter gourd first thing in the morning.  Many diabetics sprinkle bitter gourd on their first meal of the day. While others feel its better to consume it alone, or if in a powder form mix it with warm water and drink it.

Butea Leaves, is another amazing herb from India.  Though the tree has many other healing properties it isthe leaf when boiled, that releases  the phytochemicals which almost immediately reduce blood sugar. The picture that should have been here (sorry)  shows the flowering of the pods on the tree. Each pod has a seed that when dried and powered becomes a very powerful worm and parasite remover.  In Ayurveda medicine the leaf a also chewed.

 Cinnamonis such an amazing herb and of all the exotic herbs its most familiar to North Americana.  What is not generally known is that cinnamon is antiviral and  is  strong stimulator of insulin activity and is very beneficial in the treatment of diabetes and many other health challenges which require the reduction of viral pathogens and the regulation of blood sugar. It helps to keep the blood sugar in check and has been shown to be more powerful than turmeric, cloves or bay leaves.  Like most herbs the bark and twigs of the cinnamon tree has many other uses in helping our bodies to overcome health challenges.

Curry Leaves, is being shown to be a major player in the reversal of diabetes. Researchers from the department of pharmacy at King’s College London say they have found scientific justification for the use of alternative medicine.  Scientists believe that the Indian curry leaf  may contain phyto-chemicals which slow down the rate of starch-to-glucose breakdown in people with diabetes. The tree’s leaves could have the ability to control the amount of glucose entering the bloodstream. Chewing on ten fully grown leave every morning is believed to help with the lowering blood sugar and to help the pancreas to regulate insulin. chewing curry leaves is also said to help with weight loss. Its is estimated that 80% of the baby boomers are overweight and that many of them are suffering from the effects of type 2 diabetes. 

Fenugreek is easy to grow right in your kitchen and had the ability to control glucose metabolis and at the same time it  has a strong modulating effect on blood lipid levels which may substantially reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. Most diabetics, have lipid imbalances, Fenugreek has demonstrated to have the remarkable ability to lower cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL levels while raising HDL levels (good cholesterol) .

Fenugreek Seeds can be consumed in man different ways and forms. Some people eat the spouts and seeds raw before retiring while others put them in with juices and drinks. You can also purchase the powdered form. Another way to get the benefits of fenugreek is to soak the seeds in the water overnight and drink them along with the water the next morning. 

Indian Gooseberry a middle-sized tree and is indigenous to India. The berry can only be harvested about 3 months of the year. The berry is high in Vitamin C helps in controlling diabetes. The juice of the Indian Gooseberry can be added to bitter gourd and with a small amount of honey as a carrier, this combination is  thought to be an excellent way to diabetes since it provides nutrients for the pancreas, helping to release insulin.

Even though there is little to worry about when taking these natural herbs, they still might have interaction with whatever medication you are taking. It is better to be safe than sorry. This list of exotic herbs is not an exhaustive one and there are many more that are believed to have a great affect on diabetes.  I am planning on discussing them in the near future, any help or information from our readers as to what they have found would be greatly appreciated.

Dehydrating – 8 Fun And Delicious Recipes

Here at Creative Health Institute we love to make great recipes in our dehydrators, but we always keep in mind that the majority of the food that Dr. Ann Wigmore believed we should be eating consists of sprouts, fresh leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, wild edibles and of course wheatgrass…

Basic Rules of Dehydrating


1. Choose fresh, high quality produce.

2. Produce should be carefully washed and prepared.

3. Remember to turn dehydrator no higher than 110 degrees as this is when damage to enzymes begin and at 120 degrees there are no living enzymes left.

4. Dry until food reaches desired consistency or doneness.

5. Store in a cool, dry, dark place and

6.  Some dried foods can be reconstituted (raisins, figs, other dried fruits and some vegetables) by soaking 5-6 hours or overnight. The soak water from fruits can be used to add sweetness to foods you are preparing.

7. Use dehydrated foods or reconstituted foods as snacks, in main dishes, cereals, salads or sauces.

8. Layer foods close but do not let touch

 Why Dehydrate?

 1. Nutritionally superior to dried foods that you would purchase from stores pr off the internet.  Much of the dehydrated food on the market have lower vitamin, mineral, enzyme and fiber content, due to being dried in high temperatures.

      1. No preservatives/chemicals are necessary.

2.  Flavor and color are maintained.

3.  Dried food keeps well.

4. Dried food uses less storage space.

5.  It is a perfect survival food.

6   Dried food is convenient and tasty.

7   Dehydrating food is an economically sound practice.

8. Takes advantage of bulk prices.

9.  Preserves oversupply of leftovers, produce, etc. (Use leftover energy soup as a

    base for crackers.)

10. Dry seasonal foods for off-season use.

 Dehydration Recipes

Food dehydration is a process of slowly heating foods at a low temperature so as not to destroy the enzymes and the nutrients. Food dehydrators come in a variety of sizes.

A very helpful way to eat while traveling is to keep dried foods on hand.  Bananas are good dried — just cut them into thin pieces and put in the dehydrator. They can be dried at the same time as the grain crisp.

Another good snack is dried zucchini squash. The zucchini only needs to be sliced ¼ inch to ½ inch thick. You may also make many different types of “candies and cookies”.  They can be kept in a plastic bag and served as fortification against the temptation to eat unhealthy foods while traveling.

Seasonings can also be dried: onions, parsley, scallions and any herb which has been grown in your garden. Any fresh vegetables lying unused in your refrigerator can be sliced and put into the dehydrator at the same time as your grain crisps. For reasons of economy, utilize all the space the dehydrator offers.

The most important thing to remember is not to set your dehydrator above 110 degrees, 105 is optimal.  Temperatures above 110 degrees begin to damage the enzymes and at 120 degrees the enzymes are destroyed. 

To conserve food you can dehydrate leftovers.

 Banana Pecan Cookies

8 bananas

1 1/2 cups pecans, ground or chopped fine

3 Tbs. raw carob powder

Honey to taste (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream. Use a potato masher so some small chunks are left. This will make the cookie thicker. Add other ingredients and mix well. Spoon small amounts onto the dehydrator sheets and mash down. These will need to dehydrate for about 24 hours.

Sun Garden Burgers

3 T ground flax – see Note below

6 T water

1 cup carrot pulp – See Note below

1 cup sunflower seeds, ground

½ cup finely minced celery

6 T finely minced onion

2 T finely minced red pepper

1 t parsley

2 t coconut liquid aminos ( You can use Braggs or raw soy in place of the coconut aminos)

In a blender, combine the ground flax seeds and water, blending thoroughly.  Immediately pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside. Rinse the blender container before the mixture left in it hardens and becomes difficult to wash out.

In a medium-sized bowl, thoroughly mix the carrot pulp, sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper and liquid aminos.  Add the flax seed mixture and mix thoroughly.  If necessary, add more water so the mixture can be formed into patties.  Form into six ½ inch thick patties.  Dehydrate for 4 – 8 hours, leave them in the sun until warm or place them in a warm oven for 10 – 15 minutes. 

NOTE:  To grind flax seeds, place them in an electric coffee grinder and grind until powdered.  To make carrot pulp, put carrots through a heavy-duty juicer, using a juicing screen.  Use the pulp in the recipe.  Drink the juice, or reserve it for another use.

Protein Cookies

The following recipes can be made with whatever sprouted nuts or seed-cheese you have on hand.

 – Nut Crunches

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc. – whatever is on hand), saving a few to chop dry. Blend the nuts with rejuvelac and add a similar amount of bananas to make a smooth batter. Blend in the reserved dry, chopped nuts. Drop by spoon onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready. Tasty combinations suggested are Walnut/Banana and Almond/Banana. Experiment and enjoy!

(You may use sunflower seed-cheese as a substitute for the soaked nuts, however in addition to the banana you can add soaked prunes for improved flavor).

– Chewy Protein Treats

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc – whatever is on hand) and blend with rejuvelac. Add prunes and banana to the blender after nuts and rejuvelac are well blended. A good proportion is 1/2 quantity of nuts and 1/4 each of prune and banana. Drop by spoon onto dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready.

VARIATION – Same as above only use 1/2 quantity of nuts with the appropriate amount of rejuvelac and instead use 1/4 quantity of apple and 1/4 quantity of soaked dates. As above, drop by spoon and dehydrate until ready.

 Grain Crisps (bread replacements)

Use grains such as wheat, rye, kamut or spelt. For variety, add vegetables and/or herbs and spices. To sweeten, blend sprouted grain with banana and rejuvelac. Experiment!

1.         SOAK seeds for 12 hours. 

2.         SPROUT seeds for 2 days.

3.         BLEND with water or rejuvelac.

4.         POUR onto teflex dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 110 degrees for 24 hours or

            longer, depending on the thickness..

6.         STORE in plastic containers (airtight not necessary). These will keep for several weeks.

Banana Sunflower Treats

8-10 Bananas

2-3 cups soaked sprouted sunflower seeds

A touch of cinnamon (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream, leaving some small chunks for a heavy texture. Chop the sunflower seeds using a blender or a food processor. If you use the blender you will need to use enough rejuvelac or water to mix.  The blender will give you a finer texture. Spoon small amounts of the mixture onto dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until ready.

Mexican Flax Crackers

6 cups flaxseeds, soaked 4 – 6 hours in 5 ½ cups water

4 medium tomatoes, blended

1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

½ cup coconut amino acids

2 T lemon juice

2 t chili powder

2 t dried cilantro

1 t garlic powder

½ onion, chopped

½ t cayenne

Mix all ingredients well and adjust seasonings.  Keep the mixture moist and loose for spreading.  Spread mixture as thin as possible (approximately ¼ inch thick) on dehydrator trays with teflex sheets.  Keeping hands wet will help in the spreading.  Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5 – 6 hours, flip crackers over and remove the teflex sheets.  Continue dehydrating for 4 – 5 hours or until the crackers are completely dry.

Corn Chips

 6 ears non sweet corn, remove from cob

½ yellow onion

2 cups sprouted sunflower seeds, soaked 6 hours and rinsed

¼ cup water

1 ½ T coconut  liquid aminos

1 t kelp powder

Process corn and onion in a food processor, using the “s” blade.  Stop and scrape the sides;  blend until smooth. Add sprouted sunflower seeds and process until the mixture is well blended and the consistency of a batter.  Add some water if the batter is too thick.  Add Braggs and kelp; mix well. Using a teaspoon, scoop batter onto the teflex sheet of a dehydrator tray.  Flatten with a knife into a flat round surface about 1/8” thick and 1 1/2” wide.  Dehydrate at 105 for 12 hours, then remove teflex sheet and turn chips over.  Continue dehydrating for 10 – 12 hours, or until desired crispness is obtained.

A Closer Look At The Wild Edibles Found On The Grounds Of Chi

The following list contains just some of the more than 30 wonderful wild edibles found on the ground of Creative Health Institute. Many of these wild edibles are used by the staff, students and guests to make wonderful energy soups, in the tradition of Dr. Ann Wigmore.  We have weekly classes where we teach you how to identify and use wild edibles as foods and for medicinal purposes. When picking wild edible plants it is crucial that you can properly identify them. Many of them are similar in appearance to poisonous plants.

Wonderful Easy To Identify Wild Edibles

How To Peserve Food & Enzymes From Your Summer Garden…

Its nearing the end of summer in the northern hemisphere and it time to store our fruits, vegetables and berries which we have collected from our summer gardens. What we are going to share with you will not necessarily prove popular with some in the raw food community, but we believe in good science an therefore we have to speak out, as the health of 0ur family and friends is much more important to us than raw food dogma.

We therefore  suggest freezing as much locally grown organic raw vegetables, fruits and berries as possible, unless you have access t this level of fresh living  nutrition year around.

The freezing process will cause the enzymes to become inactive thereby preserving the nutritional values. Testing shows there will be a reduction in the enzymatic action of some of the enzymes but the freezing will not denature all the enzymes, like cooking does.  Scientist estimate only 10%-30%. of the enzymes are denatured in the freezing process.produce hauling  truck We feel you will be much better off eating fresh, frozen, organically grown produce, rather than having to purchase food that has not been left to ripen on the vine . The grocery stores are also selling food which has traveled across the country, or has been flown in from halfway around the world, so the food source is sometimes unknown and with the loss of water volume much of the vitamins and phyto-nutrients have been reduced.

Once fruits, vegetables or berries are cut from the vine ,their nutrient source, they begin to immediately looses nutrients. A piece of produce two weeks enzyme deathold may have lost 50% of its nutritional value.

Our bodies need real food that is nutritionally dense, whether raw and untouched or frozen. The choice is your and we honor your choices.prehistoric man

Cooking food was the way early man preserved it. There was no refrigeration or dehydration. To keep there food from rotting they had to stop the enzymatic processes and that’s why when we cook our food the enzymes begin to decrease. This decrease starts between 104 and 106 degrees and by the time the temperature reaches 120 degrees all the enzymes are destroyed.

Cooking food also diminishes the oxygen levels, destroying the foods ability to bring life giving oxygen to our cells.  An easy way to remember the best temperature to cook you foods is “105 stay alive”.

If you are in the area we would love you to stop by and visit the garden here at Creative Health Institute. Dr. Ann Wigmore loved the gardens here at the institute and we have many unpublished pictures of her in the garden and on the grounds picking more than 30 varieties of wild edibles.

Remember raw food is amazing and nutritious, but raw living food is what you need to be eating to experience the highest level of health.Wishing you  healthiest life ever.
