A moment to say thanks.
As we travel this road to find the answers and the best practices that will produce the quality of food that we need to survive, we need to take time to acknowledge and thank those that paved the road.
The Creator. What an amazing and self-sustaining world we have the privilege in which to live.
Dr. Carey Reams, (d, 1985). An amazing individual that pioneered and created the Biological Ionization theories that explain and teach how mass comes apart, but even more important, how is comes together. His unique understanding and ability to put his ideas into mathematical equations only clarifies the extraordinary mind he had. As applied to health, both in soil and the beings that feed off the food from the soil, Dr. Reams' Biological Ionization approach works.
To His Students. I have to admit that I am a very fortunate person to have had the opportunity to meet and learn from several of the individuals that were his students.
Mr. Steve Westin, (d, 2015) was a geological engineer who understood calcium like no one else. Having said that, he understood most everything like no one else. Spending time with Steve in the class room, at field tours and in the gardens looking at the soil, the plants, and the roots has given his students more understanding about how it all works than any book, lecture or course. Energy can be as complex or as simple as you choose to make it! Steve graciously shared both his wisdom and mostly his patience with all of his students and the world is a better place for his having walked among us.
Dr. Alexander (Sandy) Beddoe, was the note taker for the concepts and principles that Dr. Reams understood and developed. Sandy's ability to understanding and teach the Biological Ionization principles of human health is astounding. I have enjoyed his lectures and the unique approach he presents as he teaches the concepts of Dr. Reams. You can find his books at advancedideals.org. If you ever have opportunity to hear his presentations, the front row is the best seat!
Mr. Glen Rabenburg. Manufacturer of the GSR Calcium line of products. He has been a wonderful mentor, friend and teacher. I have spent many hours with Glen travelling to field walks and presentations. His dedication to understanding how soil, plants, biology and the minerals are involved in the production of nutrient dense food is remarkable. As Glen has often said, "It's just that simple!"
Dr. Elaine Ingham. Peering through a microscope for days on end to better understand how the ecosystem under our feet exists is not something that appeals to me. I have been fortunate to study the work of Dr. Ingham and have attended her lectures and courses. The Soil Foodweb is a brilliant explanation of what is going on in the soil and under the lens of the microscope. Who would think that biology, fungi, nematodes, and protozoa (among a whole multitude of others) can be so much fun!!!
It is an honor to be involved with these individuals and many others that are contributing to the effort to create good food.
