Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion-dollar business? In Switzerland there’s a company which has developed the art to perfection – Nestlé. This company dominates the global business in bottled water.

Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was “the wrong film at the wrong time”. So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.

FMTV | Health and Wellness on Demand

Hi there!

Our journey into health & wellness started about 10 years ago when my father was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, depression & anxiety. He spent 5 years bedridden, on 6 different medications, gained over 50 pounds, and was offered no hope for recovery.

We refused to accept this diagnosis and started studying all we could about nutrition and healing the body naturally. Our research quickly convinced us about the power of real food and the body’s own innate healing capacity.

One big problem we had was that my father didn’t take anything we said seriously, mostly because we were not medical doctors. That’s where the idea for the Food Matters film was born.

After filming experts the world over we took all the footage back to my dad and helped him get off all his meds, change his diet, and turn his life around. Within 3 months he was back to normal, 50 pounds lighter, and running almost daily after 5 years bedridden. The transformation was unbelievable.

We saw first hand that with access to solid information you can invariably make better decisions for your health. We have since dedicated our lives to sharing this lifesaving message with another feature film Hungry For Change, books, apps, foods, websites, articles, and social media with more than 1.5 million followers around the world.

It has been through this personal experience that FMTV was born! A place where we can access and share this vital information!

Now you can watch all your favorite inspiring documentaries, expert interviews and recipe videos in one place and share them with those you love.

Go on, dig into a new documentary and expand your mind… start a juice cleanse… or learn how to make some fermented veggies at home!

“Nutrition saved my father’s life and is the reason Food Matters TV was born. We believe that food is better medicine than drugs, that healthy can taste amazing and that the best nutritionist in the world is you! Read more…’’

The Soil Solution to Climate Change – Film


SustainableWorld

Published on Oct 12, 2014

What If A Solution To Climate Change Was Beneath Your Feet?

Soil is a living universe beneath our feet. As important to our lives as clean air and water, soil also holds a potential solution to the global climate crisis. Increasing numbers of scientists, farmers and ranchers are implementing innovative land use practices that build fertile soil and sequester atmospheric carbon These methods of land management have the potential to provide us with nutritious food, improved human health, cleaner water, and a healthier planet for all.

World wide, most soils are depleted of carbon. The atmosphere contains an excess of carbon in the form of CO2, a climate change causing gas. What if that CO2 could be removed and stored in our carbon-hungry soil through land management practices? Find out how in The Soil Solution.

The Soil Solution to Climate Change was one of thirteen films featured in A Climate of Change Tour sponsored by 350.org, TRUST campaign and Wild and Scenic Film Festival. It has screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Sausalito Film Festival, Awareness Festival, Davis Film Festival, Wild and Scenic Film Tour 2013 and the One Earth Film Festival.

Anything that we do to increase soil fertility could be a step in reversing climate change.
Here’s what you can do:

What Goes Up Must Come Down!- Cover bare soil with plants! Fertile soil is a natural sink for atmospheric carbon; the very same carbon that contributes to climate change. Excess carbon can be pulled out of the atmosphere by photosynthesis and into plants and the soil where it can have a beneficial effect.
Support Farmers and Ranchers Who Treat The Soil Like Gold- Buy from local food producers who increase soil fertility by using climate friendly agricultural methods including no or low-till plowing, cover cropping, composting and organic farming. If you eat meat, buy grass-fed beef from ranchers who practice holistic or rotational grazing methods that mimic the natural patterns found in nature.

If You Grow Your Own Food, Grow Your Own Soil- If you grow food, take care of your soil. Increase soil fertility by avoiding the use of toxic synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides on your garden or lawn. These poisons kill microorganisms that reside in and on the soil. These organisms perform numerous ecosystem services; including providing nutrients for plants, creating soil humus and loam and increasing plant health. The soil is filled with billions of unemployed microorganisms ready and willing to take on the job of providing nutrients to plants and indirectly to you.
Increase Your Skill Set- If you feel hopeless about climate change- it’s time to take action. Learn how to grow food without increasing atmospheric CO2. Take a course in organic gardening or regenerative farming. If you work with animals, learn about the benefits of rotational grazing. Get to know your local soil microbes and the Soil Food Web.

Consumed – Is Our Consumer Culture Leading to Disaster?


Journeyman Pictures

Or for downloads and more information:
http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=62290

Consumerism has become the cornerstone of the post-industrial age. Yet how much do we know about it and what it is doing to us? Using theories of evolutionary psychology to underpin a bold narrative of our times, this film takes a whirlwind tour through the “weird mental illness of consumerism”, showing how our insatiable appetite has driven us into “the jaws of the beast”. Both an apocalyptic and redemptive view of the human condition.
