Journey to a new health paradigmn
Aloha! We are Journey to Good Health Cafe LLC. Founded by Samuel Kuo and Chef Pablo & Emilee, we believe that full healing and transformation is achieved through tapping into the regenerative power of the land. We look to the source of all life, the land, which nurtures all life with health, wealth, and abundance.
While we live in a country of affluence, we are seeing a decline in health. Some look to pills or nutritional supplements to boost their immune system. However, many forget that it is the land that nourishes all life forms, not pills. Unsustainable agricultural practices waste away the precious nutrients and minerals in the soil, which is the original nutritional supplement for all life forms. It is only healthy soil that produce resilient, vibrant produce that can truly nourish life. Therefore, we support local farmers who practice sustainability. They provide us the best healing foods for our farm-to-table operation. And in turn, you can experience the healing power of food raised with love.
Come join us on a journey to a new health paradigm. Support local farmers, breathe and exhale joy and love, be a good steward of the planet, and be the change that you want to see!
Samuel Kuo is a driven individual passionate to make a change in environmental and food sustainability. Samuel found his calling after having reversed his own health condition of arthritis through natural food medicine in Japan. In further pursuance of his passion, Samuel left Japan to work at the Tree of a Life US Rejuvenation Retreat Center, an alternative treatment facility in the United States for treating diabetes, where he found his talent as a gardener and a plant-based chef. Samuel seeks to implement what he has learned about holistic, integrative healing as the model at Journey to Good Health Cafe LLC.
Long term Goals
Integrative, Demonstration Garden
3% of proceeds go towards raising funds to nurturing a demonstrative, community garden. The garden serves both an educational and functional purposes. We would like to demonstrate the magic of natural farming which has low labor cost, low resource cost, but high yield and long-term sustainability, It is a model that is simple to replicate and something that anybody can take home to their backyard. Moreover, people can sign up for seasonal volunteer positions to learn about sustainable agriculture. In exchange, the interns help us to maintain and harvest produce. We will also feature garden tours which will highlight practical means to environmental problems, such as carbon emission, global desertification, and global climate change. This project will demonstrate the highlights of sustainable agriculture and its positive impact on the environment while providing fresh produce for our farm to table operations.
Holistic Health Institution
Full healing and transformation involves healing on three levels: mind, body, and spirit. Journey Cafe seeks to create the Holistic Healing Institution, or an educational urban retreat/conference/summit center with the cafe being at the heart of operations. Here, you will only find a host of natural alternative treatments to fight cancer, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses. We will feature guest speakers that are expert in the subjects of sustainability in permaculture as well as plant-based nutrition healing and sustainability, and partnering with local yoga instructors, body work therapists, naturopaths, herbalists, and psychiatric counselors, to provide a circle of holistic healing services that heal wholly - mind, body, and soul. By doing so, we are able to create local, urban holistic healing programs that are affordable, personalized, and convenient.
Let's take this amazing concept of full holistic transformation and healing and take it to a global level. By reverberating holistic, integrative healing on not just a local level, but a global level, we are hoping to fight against unsustainable practices that fuel the rapid spread of desertification, which leads to global climate change and food scarcity. Can you imagine healing on a planetary level? Let's be good stewards of the planet and bring "Eden" back to our gardens and farms. Come join us and be part of the journey to a new health paradigm!
