From mul­ti­vi­ta­mins to pre­scrip­tion drugs, North Amer­i­cans seem to be in con­stant pur­suit of bet­ter health. Whether it’s based on a de­sire to main­tain fit­ness lev­els or in search of a rem­edy for a dis­ease, the first line of at­tack for many peo­ple is to reach for a bot­tle of pills. Yet, mount­ing ev­i­dence in­di­cates that per­haps our great­est line of de­fense is found in some­thing much sim­pler – whole foods. Par­adise Fields, an or­ganic farm in Bin­brook, On­tario, is in full agree­ment of this phi­los­o­phy.

The op­er­a­tion grows nu­tri­ent dense or­ganic pro­duce to help peo­ple main­tain op­ti­mal health through their diet. With the motto “healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy peo­ple,” owner Mario Roque has built a farm ded­i­cated to grow­ing the most nu­tri­tious fruits and veg­eta­bles pos­si­ble. A firm be­lief in the body’s abil­ity to heal it­self when pro­vided op­ti­mal nu­tri­tion is at the root of this busi­ness’s mis­sion.

“It is our firm be­lief that al­ter­na­tive ways of healing ex­ist,” ex­plains Roque. “Through nu­tri­tion and life­style, we have per­son­ally wit­nessed the healing of many peo­ple close to us.”

Jas­mine Loft­man, who man­ages mar­ket­ing for Par­adise Fields, is liv­ing proof that a diet com­prised of nu­tri­ent-dense foods can heal even the most dev­as­tat­ing dis­eases. In 2009, she was di­ag­nosed with mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis (MS), and had be­gun to ex­pe­ri­ence its de­bil­i­tat­ing ef­fects.

“I was numb from the neck down and was be­ing fit­ted for a wheel­chair be­cause I couldn’t walk,” ex­plains Loft­man. “I was be­ing pre­scribed steroids, chemo and drugs to deal with MS. But I de­cided to take a dif­fer­ent path than the one my doc­tors rec­om­mended.”

She chose to pur­sue a nu­tri­tion­based reg­i­men to man­age the dis­ease and be­gan a rig­or­ous study of nu­tri­tion which be­gan with an 18-day cleanse re­treat in New Brunswick. Af­ter the eighth day of the re­treat, feel­ing re­turned to her legs. Con­vinced that she was onto some­thing, she and her hus­band and three chil­dren even­tu­ally built a life­style fu­eled by whole or­ganic foods.

Her last MRI to as­sess her dis­ease, in 2013, in­di­cated that all her le­sions had dis­ap­peared. Not even a scar re­mained – some­thing doc­tors had said would be im­pos­si­ble.

“I was told by my neu­rol­o­gist that he found no clin­i­cal find­ings of MS in my body,” says Loft­man. With the dis­ease com­pletely cured, Loft­man now works with Par­adise Fields to help oth­ers rec­og­nize the power of su­per­foods to cre­ate op­ti­mal health for all peo­ple. She has a B.Sc. in orig­i­nal medicine, is a nat­u­ral health coun­sel­lor, and a colon hy­drother­a­pist.

She cau­tions that one need not wait for a dreaded di­ag­no­sis to make the tran­si­tion to a nat­u­ral diet rich in nu­tri­ents. Any per­son will ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits that come with the con­sump­tion of nu­tri­ent dense food. How­ever, not all whole foods are cre­ated equal. This is where Par­adise Fields comes in.

The com­pany’s mis­sion is to pro­duce max­i­mally nu­tri­tious foods to help peo­ple thrive. The only way to meet this goal is by grow­ing crops in soil that is rich in min­er­als. The soil at Par­adise Fields has been nat­u­rally treated to con­tain all 92 of the world’s known min­er­als and trace min­er­als. These are then ab­sorbed into the fruits and veg­eta­bles that are har­vested by Par­adise Fields.

Many will quickly no­tice the Par­adise Fields dif­fer­ence isn’t just in nu­tri­tional value. Its fruits and veg­eta­bles taste sweeter and are more fra­grant.

“The taste of Par­adise Fields’ pro­duce doesn’t even com­pare to what you’ll find in the gro­cery stores,” says Loft­man.

But, don’t take her word for it. She wel­comes any­one to visit the farm to see and taste the dif­fer­ence.

Par­adise Fields sells its fresh pro­duce ev­ery Tuesday noon to 7 p.m. and Sun­day 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Plans are in the works to build a green­house for win­ter grow­ing as well as a 4,500 square foot fa­cil­ity that houses a store, juice and smoothie bar, and cold stor­age.

The long-term vi­sion is to trans­form the prop­erty into a tourist farm des­ti­na­tion that will of­fer cook­ing classes and ed­u­ca­tion on home gar­dens.
