|Origins -- the Movie|
Our Roots. Our Planet. Our Future
Tho they did not surprise me with their premise, I did learn much regarding the role our DNA plays in our ability to metabolize the chemicals we introduce to the intricate ecosystem that is our bodies. This gave me a possible explanation for the quirky way my system reacts to certain foods and medicines and leads me to wonder just how much of my mood disorder issues might be alleviated if not cured by change of diet.
I also learned more ways I can regain power of dietary options. And maybe most important of all I was given a boost of hope.
Four years in the making, this documentary consults 24 experts in 19 countries in the fields of medicine, health, anthropology and ecology. They explore the roots of our DNA and the ways in which it has not caught up with the modern world and thus is creating illness, infertility, and ecological and economic devastation.
But it is not just a doomsday alarm. Rather it is a clarion call for concerted action on the part of groups and individuals. They emphasize the power of our dollars as votes for change. The point us in the direction of specific actions we can take in our own lives, homes, and communities to regain control over our health, diet, and our immediate environment.
For a short time they are providing a free viewing of this approximately hour and a half film. Don't miss out.
As an added bonus it is full of beautiful photography of breathtaking landscapes that exudes love and respect for our planet.
