Healing Our Land, Our Bodies, and Our Communities, a presentation by Jerry Brunetti.

Jerry Brunetti works as a soil and crop consultant primarily for livestock farms and ranches, assisting these operations as they transition away from petrochemical inputs towards adopting the practices necessary for organic food production. In addition, he works towards improving crop quality, livestock performance, and animal health that results in human health and other benefits from organic farming. Jerry was an animal science major at North Carolina State University prior to running a cow/calf operation in West Virginia. He also worked as a marketing director, who supervised milk quality at the National Farmers Organization in the Northeast for five years. In 1979, he launched Agri-Dynamics, Inc., his consulting firm, where he still works.

Jerry has been a regular speaker at numerous conferences throughout the United States, Australia, and Europe on topics that include soil fertility, animal nutrition and livestock/ human health. You can do an Internet search on his name and turn up a number of videos, papers, books, transcripts, and CD's.

Jerry was diagnosed with lymphoma and given less than 6 months to live a number of years ago. He did the research and experimented with some obscure alternative and holistic techniques, and managed to heal himself of the cancer. He often speaks to audiences about the relationship of Food as Medicine and Farm as Farmacy.

Jerry bridges natural and scientific understandings of plant and animal ecosystems, such as digestion in soils (decomposition), foods (fermentation) and animal/human gastrointestinal tract health; plant immunity originating from mineral derived pigments (e.g. carotene) called phytoalexins, which in turn contribute to the strength of animal/human immune systems.

Jerrys connect-the-dots systems approach is to assist farmers and ranchers to understand and then implement practices that demonstrate the health of people and communities is linked to healthy land, healthy animals and healthy humans. His DVDs include The Keys to Herd Health, Holistic Veterinary Care with Hugh Karreman, VMD and Cancer, Nutrition and Healing.
