Welcome to Nourishing Traditions!

Welcome to my Nourishing Traditions blog!

I am looking forward to this opportunity to write about my favorite subject: healthy food! I’ll be doing lots of updates on the science of nutrition, traditional diets, raw milk, meal planning and interesting recipes. I’ll be discussing the need for healthy animal fats in the diet–for everything from cellular energy, to protection against cancer, to an upbeat, happy mood. My new blog also gives me the opportunity to write about other subjects that interest me, including farming and gardening, children, science, music, language and literature (especially Shakespeare). I am looking forward to this new venture, and especially getting your comments and feedback. Coming soon: a series on genuine Southern cooking and a series on fermented foods from around the world–plus my heretical thoughts on feeding babies. Stay tuned!

Sincerely,
Sally Fallon Morell

Dr. Weston A. Price

Dr. Price’s Remedy

Many people have dipped into Dr. Weston Price’s book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration without actually making it to Chapter 22, “A New Vitamin-Like Activator.” There he summarizes his findings about “activator X,” a fat-soluble vitamin he discovered in butter (especially butter from cows eating rapidly growing green grass), fish eggs and the organs and fats of animals.

Telluric Currents

A Different Kind Of Building Biologist, Part III

As I mentioned in Part I of this series, one way the Shielded Healing folks differ from other building biologists is the attention they give to what are called telluric or geopathic currents and magnetic fields from the earth.

A Different Kind Of Building Biologist, Part I

This week we had a consultation with Greg Garrard of Shielded Healing for an assessment of non-native Electro-Magnetic Frequencies (EMF) in our house—and a most interesting day it was!

Purchase directly from a farmer you know

Why You Should Purchase Meat, Eggs, and Dairy Products Directly From A Farmer You Know

Last year the Weston A. Price Foundation launched its 50% Campaign, urging consumers to purchase at least 50 percent of their food directly from farmers and artisan processors. This helps build a local food system, creates food security and ensures prosperity for our farmers. But there are many other reasons to avoid industrial meat and obtain the animal products you need directly from a farmer you know.

Myxomatosis in Wild Rabbits

Myxomatosis

In response to my blog “Is Coronavirus Contagious?” and the book The Contagion Myth, in which my co-author, Tom Cowan, and I have explained that so-called “viruses” are actually helpful exosomes, which do not cause disease, but which the body makes in response to toxins, starvation and injury—in response to these surprising claims, I received a chiding email.

The Contagion Myth - a Fairy Tale??

The Contagion Fairy Tale
by Thomas Cowan, MD and Sally Fallon Morell

Our book, The Contagion Myth, is now available (banned on Amazon but sold on other outlets) and has already generated dozens of comments, many of them challenging our contention that the corona “virus” does not exist and that the illness attributed to this virus is not contagious—one referred to our book as a fairy tale!

Soy and Soy Derivatives to Avoid

State of Illinois Is Poisoning and Starving Prisoners

As many of you know, the problem of toxic soy ingredients in prison diets has concerned the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) for many years. It began in 2003 in the Illinois prisons when Blagojevich became governor. He repaid his political debts to Archer Daniel Midlands (ADM) by eliminating meat from the prison diet and replacing it with soy—soy nuggets, soy patties, soy sausage and even soy flour in the baked goods. Since an Internet search for “soy dangers” immediately brings up the Weston A. Price Foundation, we soon began receiving desperate pleas for help from Illinois prisoners.

The Contagion Myth, by Sally Fallon Morell and Thomas S. Cowan, MD

The Contagion Myth

I’ve had a few enquiries lately about when my next blog will appear—it’s been many weeks since my last one. I’ve been very busy writing a book called The Contagion Myth with my esteemed colleague, Dr. Tom Cowan. The book expands on my last two blogs, “Is Coronavirus Contagious” and “Comets or Contagion,” and on Tom’s webinars.

Comet or Contagion?

Comets or Contagions?

Throughout history, philosophers believed that comets were “harbingers of doom, disease, and death, infecting men with a blood lust to war, contaminating crops, and dispersing disease and plague.”

Is Coronavirus Contagious?

Is Coronavirus Contagious?

This is the sixty-four-thousand-dollar question. The premise that coronavirus is highly contagious and can cause disease provides the justification for putting entire nations on lockdown, destroying the global economy and throwing hundreds of thousands out of work. But is it contagious? Does it even cause disease?

How To Protect Yourself From Coronavirus (Or Any Virus)

With coronavirus dominating the news, we’ve seen a contagion of conspiracy theories—coronavirus is a bio-weapon invented by the Chinese, coronavirus lingers on paper money so governments are going to decree a cashless society, coronavirus has given the Italian and Iranian governments an excuse to crack down on dissidents, coronavirus is caused by 5G, which was rolled out in Wuhan—and outbreaks of worst-case-scenario thinking, like the claim that coronavirus will infect 80 percent of the UK population!

Soybean Oil Consumption

The Scourge of Soybean Oil

Southern Maryland, where I live, used to be a premier tobacco-growing region. Then in the 1980s, as the risks of tobacco smoking became clear, the state of Maryland instituted a tobacco buy-out program. Tobacco farmers received a large payment for ten years in a row to never plant tobacco again. The problem is that what replaced the tobacco was mostly soybeans—a crop that is far more carcinogenic and dangerous than tobacco. Fields-of-lung-cancer became fields-of-every-kind-of-cancer.
