Our Story: "From Dying to Thriving”Conscious Planet was founded by Charles Holmes and Wind Walrath after over a 25 years of searching and striving for the youthful health they had given up. They experienced an abundance of personal health challenges that seemed terribly daunting, but after passionately studying with some of the worlds top food and nutrition experts, and doing the work required, they both overcame what most would describe as life threatening disease symptoms, and now have a clear understanding of what it takes to go from dying to thriving! With a holistic nutritional program, Charles managed to overcome debilitating allergies, digestive disorders, IBS and an ulcerated/bleeding colon that the doctors only solution was a colostomy (removal of damaged large intestine). He met Wind a few years later and together helped her overcome breast cancer by similar natural methods. It was then they realized the amazing self healing abilities of the body, and they developed the skills to help others overcome disease symptoms. Twenty years later Charles and Wind are healthier than ever! Our History with Hemp: In the year 2000, after years of searching for the ultimate food source for the human body, Charles and his father Ken discovered hemp seeds to be the optimal protein and good fat source. The Holmes family became pioneers in the hemp industry and produced the first hemp seed protein powder among other food products like hemp milk. The more they work with hemp, the more appreciation they gain for this super plant! Charles was heavily involved in the health food industry for over a decade which offered him inside information to all the suppliers, formulations and experts in the field. Mostly what he discovered was not truth about health and wellness, but marketing! Discouraged with the reception he received to deliver a complete rejuvenative product line and eating program to people through health food stores, he pulled some of the products from the shelves realizing this was not the ideal venue for optimal health. The family’s first company, Living Harvest was left to sell mainstream food items like hemp milk, hemp yogurt and hemp ice cream. To fill the massive void that he found in health food stores, Conscious Planet was birthed. After selling the company Living Harvest, his family formed Hempco Canada. Hempco is the world’s most trusted and respected pioneer, innovator and provider of value added hemp seed foods as a major food source for humans and animals. The mission of Hempco is the leading capable manufacturer, supplier and educator serving our customers with the finest quality hemp seed food products in the world. Our pH Balancing Diet: Through attending many of the top health retreat centers Charles and Wind realized the highest health information and programs were similar in their approach, but no one had made it "do it yourself” yet. The CORE (Complete Optimal Regenerative Environment) Pro-Terrain Nutritional Program and 3 month Vision Quest (no sugar, pH balancing diet) makes optimal health simple and affordable. Even though it is the most difficult program, it creates the best long term results in all areas of life. Health can be reduced to these four simple activities: 1) Replenish the bodies natural resources for digestion, nutrient utilization, and waste removal and build up the immune system 2) Clean the body of all the built up toxins from food, environment and medications, and kill off the pathogenic bacteria to stop the pleomorphic/composting process. 3) Feed the body a pH balancing diet to stop feeding the pathogens! 4) Regenerate and maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit through the CORE - Pro-terrain Nutritional Program and Conscious Planet product supplementation. Our Nine Year Track Record: After 9 years with a solid track record, thousands of Conscious Planet members have now benefited from the products, information and programs offered! People with fatigue, diabetes, obesity, hormone problems, cancer, mental health issues, and many other disease symptoms have all found positive results as they plugged into the Conscious Planet program and have removed the mystery of the cause of disease. They have the ability to help pay it forward to the ones they love and even become a Wellness Consultant profit sharing partner with us if they choose. Our Mission: Our mission at Conscious Planet is to support you to fuel your highest performance in all aspects of life. Whether you are a busy parent, creative entrepreneur, professional athlete, spiritual seeker, having health problems or just simply tired of feeling drained all the time, we are committed to helping you reclaim your youthful energy levels, vibrancy, strength, mental and physical health through our premier products, enlightening education, and our food and profit sharing opportunity. Why Our Hemp Seeds are Better than Organic We've created a new growing standard called SAFE: Sustainable Agronomic Food Essentials. SAFE: Sustainable Agronomic Food Essentials - Vertical Integration and Accountable Food Production – Soil to Shelf "Bio-Dynamic” or "Balanced System” is known as higher than organic standards. The commitment is to growing the finest food possible in harmony with the land. This is difficult to achieve on large farms with large equipment producing mass amounts of food. SAFE Steps: 1. Soil is tested for nutrient levels, defined and classified determining the soil/crop inputs to enhance nutrient balancing and yields. 2. The soil ecosystem is adjusted with fulvic acids, humic acids, enzymes and probiotics with other natural fertilizer concentrates (similar to chelated nutrient supplementation for people) to provide optimal mineral and soil "workers” that is designed to build soil and match the selected plant variety naturally lowering: water requirements, other plant competition and environmental stress factors. 3. Seed selection – choosing best germination and root development for the climate zone and soil conditions. Provides correlations for optimal relationships with soils and seed genetic characteristics. Both thus create: superior nutrient levels, consistent growth and increased yield. 4. Food will be harvested at its ideal ripeness according to most appropriate lunar and solar cycles. 5. Food storage and treatment includes Hydroxyl (similar to ozone) seed, grain and nut treatment that reduces peroxide levels and removes negative bacteria in food thereby prolonging shelf life naturally. Modern Crop Production and SAFE Description: Why SAFE? In Canada, USA, Europe and other countries of the world there now exists two recognized distinctive systems or methodologies of crop production, but we've created a third! 1. Conventional: This is the modern day method of crop production that has evolved through the years. The producers have embraced this methodology of crop production in the anticipation of increased productions and profit. This methodology is 100% dependent upon GMO’s, chemical fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides of all descriptions. The long term accumulative effect of this methodology of crop production is: 1.) Loss of natural soil fertility 2.) Declining nutritional quality of food stuff 3.) Toxic residual chemicals in the food chain that are connected to health issues such as cancer. 4.) Input costs are increasing and along with that is the financial risk of crop production. Additionally, since the advent of GMO’s and glysophate, the detrimental effects of their continuous use is now being evidenced and connected to crop production issues. A simple statement of fact is that the modern day conventional system has some serious issues both short and long term. 2. Certified Organic: This is the other system of crop production that started because many people had and have health concerns about the nutritional quality of and residual contaminants in our food chain. It is only logical that everyone would want to eat high quality nutritional food that does not contain any residual contaminants use in crop production. In addition to that many producers who were not "organic” were facing financial hardship in the conventional system and decided to go organic as a necessity for financial survival. Unfortunately, this system of crop production also has some issues. For example, how does a producer grow a high quality nutritional foodstuff in a depleted, degraded or low fertility soil? The obvious answer is you can’t! Yet most organic producers are trying to grow a quality crop in soils that lack natural fertility This is happening because the present certifying agencies and the utopian concepts do not permit the use of conventional NPKS and trace elements products that supply the essential nutrients needed to improve production and quality. The solution to many of the crop production issues is the SAFE approach to crop production. 3. The SAFE Solution: The SAFE program can be described as a blended common sense approach to crop production. The SAFE program adheres to the best parts of organic standards. It does not allow the use of xenobiotic substances (foreign to nature); no GMO’s, pesticides or man-made chemicals in crop production. SAFE does allow for the use of moderate amounts of concentrated conventional fertilizers to supplement the essential nutritional needs to meet crop demands with specific www.bioagronics.com products such as fulvic and humic acids, probiotics and enzyme active ingredients. This is proven to reduce weeds, soil compaction and salinity and increase fertilizer efficiency thereby attracting more living organisms for a healthy vigorous crop that is more resistant to disease and has improved crop yields of 10-30% in the first year. This common sense approach utilizes inputs that will improve soil fertility and crop production without the reliance of toxic chemicals that may have residue issues or other side effects. This means safer and healthier nutrient dense food for us.
