With Ian Willis from Sylva Lining Organics
Ian Willlis, Farmer and Co-founder of Sylva Lining Organics, located in the Northern Rivers of NSW, shares his knowledge and expertise with the team at Garden of Vegan. During their visit to the farm, Ian shared his wisdom when it comes to organic farming, living organically and the future sustainability of both human health and planetary health. In this short video, he explained how important it is to eat clean food for our mental and physical health.
Ian really emphasised the fact that so many people nowadays are constantly feeling run down, exhausted and tired.
We live in a world where we are saturated with multiple distractions and stimuli that are often not natural, taking us away from the present moment. This compacts overtime and can create a toxic overload, resulting in poor physical, mental, emotional and social health.
Add in heavily processed foods that are not alive or thriving with nutrients and you have the perfect cocktail for disaster!
Ian and his partner Sylva truly believe that health starts with what you are putting in your body. It is one of the things we have full control over. The pair take pride and great care in providing their family and local community with clean organic produce, to ensure that they are boosting their health and doing what they can for their bodies, to reduce the stress of everyday life.
Ian and the team at Sylva Lining are constantly allocating their time and energy into sourcing the richest and cleanest solutions to support mother nature and give back to her, rather than just take. Ian believes that in supporting the land and the ecosystem within it, we as humans will also sustain that support for our health and longevity.
We are continually hearing individuals around us, even our dearest relatives talk about how they are feeling run-down, depleted, stressed, lacking energy, no drive and are chronically tired.
From Ian’s perspective, although he does work long hours starting at 3am some days on the farm, he awakens feeling fresh and full of beans, ready to take on another day. Running his business comes with many stressors and feelings of tiredness and exhaustion. He personally attributes his resilience and good health at his age, to the high vibing, high quality, nutrient dense food that he consumes daily, straight from the farm.
This all comes down to what you're putting into your body.
Ian states “It’s ok to get tired, it's ok to be exhausted but it's also ok to bounce back because you're healthy. What a lot of people struggle with is bouncing back.”
