Amazon Cultural Adventures

The Adventure of a Lifetime. Guided Trips Up the Amazon.The Peruvian Amazon is truly one of the great rain forests in the world. We offer a chance to both visit the rainforest and to live with the true guardians of it.

We will travel into the remote part of the Chambria basin to visit the Urarina/Shimaku Indians. Because of their remoteness and limited contact with the outside world, their culture has changed very little over the last hundred years.

During the trip we will visit several villages to learn about their way of liBoating the Amazon River in Perufe. Travel into the rainforest to see their gardens, house building materials and learn about the plants and trees they use for medicinal purposes.

Some afternoons are spent giving out photos from prior trips although in the beginning of my travels to this area, they did not allow photos.

We will spend several hours in each village trading for the crafts they have made. There is always the chance the crew (and you) will have a soccer game with the Urarinas in the late afternoon.  Visit our website for information www.amazonculturaladventures.com

What Does “Organic” Really Mean?

I was standing next to a woman in the supermarket aisle as she was reading the label of a cereal box. She looked up and asked out loud:

“I wonder if buying organic is really worth the price?”

We have all heard that we should read the labels of the groceries we buy, but it can be confusing. What’s the difference between100% organic or just organic?

Did you know that the word “organic” has 4 different meanings depending on the label?

To the woman’s surprise, (she who didn’t know I specialize in helping people with food allergies and digestion), I gave her a quick rundown.

  • 100% organic products contain ONLY certified organic ingredients.
  • “Organic” products must contain at least 95% organic ingredients.
  • “Made with organic products”: At least 70% of ingredients must be organic.
  • Products with less than 70% organic ingredients can list specific organic ingredients on the packaging.

So next time you ponder a label, hopefully that helps clarify what organic really means.

Thanks for reading! If this was helpful, feel free to pass it on.
