Healthy Living Requires Mineral Nutrients, Healthy Food, and Thriving Microbial Communities

This is true for:

environmental health…

soil health…

plant & animal health…

microbiome health…

and even YOUR HEALTH

Most people don’t realize just how much their own health depends on the health of the environments in which our food is grown, prepared, and consumed.  People everywhere are suffering needlessly from nutritional deficits that contribute to chronic disease.  We spend fortunes on health care systems and biomedical research.  We throw money into political campaigns in the hopes that care will become more affordable.  And the search for magic pills that fix cancer, diabetes, heart disease, addictions, mental health issues and all else that ails us is as endless as the quest for money to pay for this search.

But when we really stop to think about it, most of us already know deep down inside that the only lasting solutions to chronic disease are the solutions that come when people:

  • restore the depleted soils on which our food is grown 

  • replace cheap,  synthetic foods with whole foods and nutritional supplements derived from plants grown on healthy soils

  • learn what healthy soils and good nutrition look like, so we can take personal responsibility for our own health and well being.

  • surround ourselves with like minded people who support and encourage healthy living.


We Restore Health From the Ground up by Helping Growers and Consumers Achieve Nutritional Goals

Benefits for growers:  By examining your soil health parameters, we help farmers and gardeners improve crop quality.  For many, our approach helps decrease input costs over time.  Crop value improves because crops will have better flavor and quality.  We can also promote farms to consumers in our network who are seeking access to healthier food.

Benefits for People who Eat: When your body  has access to all of the nutrients needed for healthy living, damaged cells, tissues, and organs can heal.  We help consumers learn to recognize nutritional deficiencies and make better diet and supplementation choices. Through our affiliate network, we can also help you identify cost effective solutions for both conventional and alternative health care needs.

Benefits for the Community: As local growers improve soil health, and local consumers begin eating better food (including more local food), a cascade of benefits to the community follow.  Local environmental quality improves (healthy farm soils produce less run off and help regenerate clean air and water).  As consumer health improves, so does productivity and innovation.  As networks develop around healthy food, a local multiplier effect kicks in, and local communities prosper.

The result: growers see higher profit margins, consumers enjoy healthier, more active, lifestyles, and communities enjoy a cleaner, more prosperous living environment. 

Here are 4 ways we help growers and consumers enjoy the benefits of better nutrition:

  1. We teach workshops and online classes that teach principles of soil health, human nutrition, and functional microbiomes.
  2. We work with growers to restore soil health.
  3. We build networks that link local growers to consumers who are seeking healthier food choices.
  4. We offer nutrition products, garden products, and more through an online affiliate store.

I’m Mary Lucero, PhD and co-founder of End-O-Fite Enterprises LLC.

I’ve made it my mission to apply my experience and expertise to efforts that foster more soil-savvy growers and more health-conscious consumers.

On the pages of this website, you will encounter products and information including:

  • Training  that helps growers manage soil microbes and build soil health.
  • Dietary supplements that support healthy microbiomes, restore mineral nutrients, provide complete nutrition, detoxify cells, reduce oxidative stress, and even restore mitochondrial function.
  • An ongoing dialog, via podcasts and our  blog where I share insights and experiences, technical information, and guest perspectives that promote holistic and microbiome friendly solutions to for building better health from the soil up.
