About the cacao: The Integrity Cacao Story

It all started back in August of 2012. I was working at a local healthfood store and two things were happening:

 

1. I noticed many customers could not eat anything packaged because it all had soy, gluten, peanuts, or some other common allergen. I thought, wow these folks need something clean to enjoy.

 

2. I could not afford to buy the raw chocolate in the store at that time, so I started making my own. After experimenting and sharing my concoctions, the feedback was so beautiful I decided to pursue cacao as a business; to share quality, clean products made with love, to show my daughter how rewarding it is to be an entrepreneur, and to set a new purity standard for gourmet food. All the chocolates are free from any binders, alteratives, waxes, or preservatives of any kind.

 

This is how it all began, and 6 years later we are expanding and sharing our passion for cacao both as a health food and a pleasurable, mindful indulgence. Yes, you can have chocolate and feel great about it! The new paradigm of health is allowance over deprivation. There is a reason the body craves different foods. Go for the high quality stuff; food is medicine after all.

I chose Integrity because this mission is serious. It is an oath to purity of sourcing, ingredients used, and manufacturing practices producing the desired nutritional benefit. It is consumer education, sharing the immense abilities we have to heal our bodies and minds through proper nourishment. It is honoring the healing powers of foods and formulating chocolates  with innovation and maximized health benefits on a biochemistry level. Integrity is deep, and represents our commitment as a business and a culture.  We all can invest in our health and longevity with quality foods.

Ingredient Quality

Absolutely zero compromises for ingredient quality is our motto.

We sweeten with organic grade A robust maple syrup from Bascom family farms. Each piece of chocolate has 2 grams of sugar.

Our cacao is sourced from the Longevity Warehouse. This Fair Trade cacao is the revered species Arriba Nacional, and it is not grown on a barren lot like typical CM cacao. This cacao is literally harvested from the jungle in Ecuador where the locals have to ride donkeys on the treacherous terrain, swatting at wasps while they pick the pods. It’s truly nature made, and the workers are paid fairly, which is so critical to having a quality company.

No synthetics! Our flavors are organic essential oils without solvents, organic dehydrated fruits, organic floral waters, or organic, non-irradiated spices.

No soy.

No GMOS.

No gluten.

No additives or preservatives.

Mission Statement

It is our mission to change lives through good chocolate. From the sourcing of ingredients to meticulous manufacturing practices that maximize nutritional value,  to it melting in your mouth and elevating your life experience, it is an invitation for soulular activation.

Integrity is our code, and represents our commitment to the planet as a business and a culture. We are honored to be stewards for lightworkers, starseeds, and Gaia, igniting and aligning human potential through superfood alchemy since 2012. Many blessings!

 

In gratitude,

Meet the Maker: Merissa's health history

Merissa has been consumed with her passion for the human potential, esoteric quantum physics and alternative healing since a small child.

Her insatiable thirst to explore all subjects related to health, healing, our inherent human potential, the essence of consciousness, Earth-based indigenous traditions, archaeology/biology/chemistry and longevity began with her early introduction to alternative medicine as a little girl. She experienced several serious auto-immune disorders, the treatment of which opened her awareness to many forms of alternative medicine including acupuncture, TCM, naturopathic/allopathic remedies, herbalism, reiki, Ayurveda, Yoga, prayer, sound healing and gem therapy.

During her first near-death experience, she received a transmission while in the hospital and learned the root causes of illness being emotional in nature through her own health-related issues. She also received, or remembered (??), her assignment or mission in this life, which was of service. At age 8 she realized that her path was to help teach people how to both acquire and maintain their empowerment and thus optimum health through living an illumined lifestyle. That health and our quality of life is a choice, and we need to explore the potential of our bodies to heal. The body is a highly intelligent design intricately connected to our belief system and quality of thoughts/emotions.  The body mind spirit connection is more profound than is currently widely accepted. Spontaneous healing is highly possible. This wisdom stems from many traditional branches of mysticism on a global scale including ancient technology systems and tools that are now becoming more socially acceptable as we collectively remember. 

Merissa enthusiastically shares her wisdom of Ayurvedic philosophy, energetic alignment, and diet/lifestyle practices to help people take their health into their own hands. She combines her Ayurvedic education with traditional Hawaiian Huna, Shipibo cosmology, Western/Vedic/Mayan astrology, esoteric quantum physics, Kundalini and shamanic/Earth practices from all over the world, enabling her clients to de-program from old/artificial identities to experience an expansion of perception and self-awareness through their own conscious allowance/creation to actively engage in heart-centered living.

This knowledge has been condensed into Integrity Cacao as a high vibe food, an initiation to allow for an elevated perspective and more fulfilled life experience. Let’s birth a new world of consciously sustainable practices, from lifestyle, to business and commerce.
