Organic gardening is on of those things which sound like a little hobby for senior citizens. As far back as I can remember, society would look at organic gardening as something which only hippies or so called tree huggers participated in. However, based on the current economy and food prices, organic gardening is fast becoming one of the best ways to save money and eat healthy. This article will show you the top 3 health benefits of organic gardening.
1) Increased Consumption of Healthy Organic Foods.
Before I first started organic gardening, I did not realize that I was consuming vegetables with weird chemicals included in them. The simple fact of the matter is that organic fruits and vegetables taste much better. Traditionally grown fruits and vegetables are dry and lack flavor because they do not have the trace minerals that are added to the soils in actual organic gardens. Many times dyes and food coloring are added to make these vegetables look better. I tend to find these unhealthy types in my local supermarket. The nice thing about organic gardening is that by the end of the season there is enough fresh harvest to last for a long while. I have easily been able to create a healthy luscious supply of fruits and vegetables.
2) Boost of Self Esteem and Confidence.
One thing I have noticed is that nature provides a euphoric feeling of health and calmness. Even as a medical doctor, I cannot fully explain this phenomenon. With the increase in technology and television programs, it is easy to forget the serenity and peace of nature. Aside from the point, I felt my self esteem and confidence go further. Perhaps it is the fact that I have accomplished a long term task, or even my realization that I can wait for a good harvest. What I can say, is that I have been able to control my emotions better and appreciate my quiet time while gardening.
3) Reduced Exposure to Harmful Pesticides
Throughout my medical career, I have come to understand the devastating long term affects of pesticides. The one thing which boggles my mind is how the media is portraying this thing. I remember seeing a television ad some time ago saying that the pesticides were safe and effective at killing bugs. Plants have been known to produce their own natural 'pesticide' to deal with the onslaught of bugs. Through organic gardening, you have the chance to free yourself from these damaging chemicals as well as preservatives. The soil you will be using is full of rich vitamins and minerals as opposed to whatever they are doing on the other farms for the public. Take a look at many of the scientific studies which have concluded that pesticides are known to cause cancers and other health problems.
