Hey there! We’re Anth + Crystal & we’re thrilled to meet you!
What are we all about?
Nutrient dense homegrown wholefoods free from synthetic chemicals
Nourishing & incredibly delicious plant based creations that make you feel incredible…
And the biggie – waking up with a mountain of energy & feeling ready to take on the world… or in other words – having awesome health…& helping you to do the same!
Oh… And our 2 border collies! If they didn’t get a mention we’d be in the doghouse :p
but back to having awesome health…
It actually took us quite some time to figure out that a healthy body isn’t just genetic, or luck of the draw & that we actually have a lot more power over our own health than we ever thought possible…
And that power? It comes from food.
Not just any food though…
Nutrient dense, REAL food.
And we’re not talking about wholemeal bread instead of white bread, or subway instead of macca’s.
Nutrient dense, real food is grown…
& it’s grown in nutrient dense, healthy soil.
UNFORTUNATELY THOUGH, WE DIDN’T ALWAYS UNDERSTAND THAT..
If you wound back the clock 7 years, you’d be greeted by a (more than slightly) chubby looking guy with a suspiciously high number of $1 transactions to his name thanks to Hungry Jacks frozen cokes…
He would also be creating multiple Facebook accounts to try to outsmart the Hungry Jacks Shake & Win App… He certainly had life on a string!
On the arm of that guy would’ve been a pale, extremely underweight young lady, who – when she wasn’t at the doctor’s with another crippling migraine, throat infection or intense bout of the flu – was either sleeping her life away from pure exhaustion, trying to fight through another dizzy spell, panicking from uncontrollable stress & worry, or lathering more chemical laden foundation on her face to cover up those lovely little face sores…
The situation wasn’t pretty… & neither were we!
We felt completely powerless…& after going down every conventional path looking for answers (having no luck & getting worse along the way!) we finally stumbled onto the path of natural health…
& after discovering the life changing powers of organic wholefoods, we’ve never looked back!
The concept that
thriving food = thriving body
had us hooked
So much so that we started learning everything we could about nutrition & the human body… & more so, the role that soil health plays in nutrition.
See, the essential minerals that we rely on for our energy & vitality, for healthy skin & hair, or balancing our hormones…our bodies can’t make them on its own, it must get them from our food.
The thing is…
Our food can’t make them either
it must get them from the soil!
That’s where minerals come from, & that’s when we realised… good health starts in the soil!
But here’s the problem… The mineral levels in Australia’s (& the world’s) soil have dropped significantly over the last century…which not only leads to mineral deficient soil… but mineral deficient food as well!
Could this be linked to the reason why you’ve probably experienced a vitamin or mineral deficiency…
Or why your hair started falling out for no apparent reason…
Or why you wake up tired morning after morning, struggling to face the day…
The answer is yes, it absolutely could!
And it was no different for us.
Determined to get rid of ALL of our symptoms, we started growing our own nutrient dense organic food in our very own homemade mineral packed, microbe rich soil creation.
We wanted to be sure we were providing our bodies with only the best food… And it worked!
Symptoms started disappearing…
Weight started disappearing…
And our energy was through the roof!
Plus as a side bonus, our edible garden (soon to be called a Healthy Patch!) was going bananas
with fresh, mineral packed goodness… minus any hefty maintenance or dying plants!
Not too long after this we became madly obsessed with growing everything & anything we could in
our own soil creation…
3 more Healthy Patches later we had enough leafy greens to feed a small army + multiple boatloads of nourishment to feed our bodies.
Fresh green smoothies, vibrant green juices & superfood salads flooded our bodies daily… & we finally started to understand what real heath felt like.
Now we really did have life on a string! And we knew we had to share this with the world.
Because… well… put shortly… If you’ve never experienced the benefits of growing your own nutrient dense wholefoods before… you’re missing out big time!
Not just because of that beautiful, organic food you
have at arms length…
not just because of that immense joy or that beautiful
calmness you get when harvesting your own nourishment…
but because of that insane new found energy & vitality
your body gets as a result of it!
IT’S OUT OF THIS WORLD… & WE NEED YOU TO EXPERIENCE IT!
But here’s the thing… if you’ve never grown a thing in your life…or maybe you’ve tried a few times before & it didn’t work out too well… it might all seem a little too hard…
This is what planted the seed for The Healthy Patch (we love a good pun!)
A business dedicated to helping everyday health conscious people, even with very little time on their hands, have easy access to the best quality organic foods to nourish their bodies!
What started off as creating World First Certified Organic, nutrient dense edible gardens (AKA Healthy Patches) for the health conscious in & around Melbourne, quickly turned into something much bigger.
And after helping countless people grow their own organic food for optimal health including Paleo Chef Pete Evans, Dr Libby Weaver, Luke Hines, Vegie Head Adele McConnell, Dr Nat Kringoudis & Amy Crawford + having to sadly turn away more & more people because we just physically couldn’t get to them…
We knew it was time to take our message worldwide.
The healthy patch formula was born!
The Healthy Patch Formula is our life changing online 6 week step by step program, designed & created from the ground up, to show you exactly how to start growing your own nutrient dense, healthy food, easily.
