This conversation will be a high-level conversation because I’m not an expert on effective microorganisms. What I have learned, however, is that they are a synergistic solution for many natural and man-made disasters.

Before we talk about disasters, let’s talk about bokashi. The integral part of the bokashi bran mix is the effective microorganisms. Wheat bran, EM1water and molasses if properly combined can be the beginnings of a cookie, cracker or muffin. However, by adding effective microorganisms, you added life and the ability to sustain life.

Creating Effective Microorganisms

I have yet to complete the task of creating my own brew, but folks have done it using rice water (water from washing rice), water, molasses and time.  I’m not so sure I’ll ever create my own EM, but I’ve learned never to say never.

With EM-1, Dr. Teruo Higa has come up with the right combination of microorganisms that works perfectly in bokashi, so I decided to leave the effective microorganism creation to the experts.

Not only has he created the perfect concoction to work in fermenting kitchen wastes, his EM-1 and EM-X helps to mitigate radiation (as in the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster), assist in mold cleanup (as in the Thailand tsunami, and Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana ) and more.  Additionally, EM-1 technology is used in wastewater clean up, rust prevention and to emulsify grease (just a few more uses for effective microorganisms).

EM-1 for Every Day Use

Dr. HigaAside from coming to the rescue on a large scale as mentioned above, effective microorganisms are great for everyday cleaning jobs. From disinfecting and cleaning the bathroom/kitchen to keeping the kitty litter box odor free.

When was the last time you heard of a true solution for removing the funk of a skunk? Yes, with a 1:10 dilution (EM-1:water) you can get rid of the unpleasant skunk smell, so the next time Fido does the tango with a skunk, you don’t have to fret.

The very same product is potent both outside and inside the body. The right combination of effective microorganisms (such as those found in yogurt or sauerkraut) is healthy for the body. By ingesting EM-X you can reduce allergy sensitivity, decontaminate organs, improve your body’s pH and more.

It’s unfortunate that we are so programmed to seek unnatural chemical resolutions to problems before looking at what is already abundantly available in nature.  Thank you, Dr. Higa, for sharing EM-1 with the rest of the world.
