The wolf and the warrior
When you domesticate a wolf you take away their strength and resilience. It weakens the animal and subjects it to degeneration that it would not have experienced otherwise in its wild environment and expressing its normal behaviours dictated by the laws of nature.
The exact same thing occurs when you take species of wild plants and domesticate them to fit the needs of a modern society. Like the wolf, wild plant's job is to survive in harsh environments and as a result, they develop incredible strength and resilience. The wolf can bite, wild plants cannot so their evolutionary defence mechanism is to develop toxic compounds to protect against prey. As we have spoken about many times on this page, some of those plant based chemicals in small doses have a tonic or medicinal properties and when used correctly have tremendous benefits on the body.
When you domesticate a wolf you take away their wildness properties, when you domesticate wild plants you do the same process, resulting in the loss of the bitter flavours which are the phytochemicals and medicine we have thrived of for hundreds of thousands of years.
Little research has been done on the effects of generations living of highly domesticated food so that call is for yourself to make. However, there has been much research done on the health of domesticating other species with the effects being very obvious.
To be a warrior you need the right information and the correct use wild plants are perhaps the most important foundation of our performance and survival. If conventional foods don't contain the vitamins and minerals, phytochemical's and stress-activated nutrients we need to thrive off, then we do what every other highly successful animal does, we adapt, overcome and find our own.
A proven warrior is at all times clean, courteous and master of himself." Wapasha, Sioux Chief
