Our first medicine should be Food
by Dr. Pilar Muñoz-Calero.
El Huerto de Lucas was founded to promote good health, but not in the sense of curing an ailment, but a health and wellbeing that comes from the state of plenitude we feel as human beings who are living with all of our faculties activated and alert.
Are we weak when our bodies reject the multitude of potentially toxic substances all around us (in food, water, air…)? Or is it that Nature itself, not in a state of weakness but from being real, that cannot adapt to all of these changes, as we lose a multitude of species each day.
The true weakness may not be nature, that which is forced to adapt to all of these impurities. The true weakness is more likely our human insensitivity and greed. We need a change in consciousness to once again find awareness and common that will lead us to a state of wellbeing.
So do we confuse sensitivity with weakness?
El Huerto de Lucas would like to provoke the thought that it is not “weak” but “strong”, and it is a sensibility in us that can be developed when we “awaken” our senses, to help us better perceive beauty and a true sense of life that can guide our way to health.
To do this, the market offers food without contaminants, clean water and carefully sourced elements so that we can breathe the purest possible air; together with informative campaigns and lectures that look to open a dialogue on today’s best practices… We are a little garden in a tiny corner of Madrid. We are here for those who by necessity live the urban life but who still yearn to be near the natural world.
