In 1932, a year after Dr. Weston Price began his studies on healthy, non-industrialized peoples, New York City hosted the Third Eugenics Conference. Eugenics promoted the “directed evolution of man” made possible by a global scientific and medical dictatorship, which proposed to improve the lot of mankind by making “better” people, rather than resolving the conditions that led to poverty and ill health.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As I have learned through experience, when you start the day with adequate protein and plenty of good fats, your blood sugar remains stable throughout the morning, your brain stays sharp and focused, you won’t doze off and you’re unlikely to think about snacking. Here’s a few of the nutrient-dense breakfasts that keep me going for a good six hours until lunchtime.
My colleague Pam Schoenfeld, MS, recently put me onto an eye-opening article on vitamin A. Titled “Tissue Changes Following Deprivation of Fat-Soluble A Vitamin,” by S. Burt Wolbach, MD and Percy R. Howe, MD, the article was published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine in 1925.
I’ve been involved in the field of nutrition and alternative remedies since the 1970s, and I keep a collection of crazy statements I’ve heard through the years. These include:
With the Covid vaccination program now in shambles, officials are focusing their fear porn on the measles, as evidenced by a December 27, 2022 front page article appearing in the Washington Post.
Modern technocrats have found lots of ways to ruin our food—like rapid heating of milk to 160 or even 230 degrees, zapping with microwaves, irradiating with radioactive materials, spray drying at high temperatures, extruding at high temperatures and pressures and embalming with sugar. Now a new technology has come on the scene: ultra-high pressure applied to a variety of foods for humans, pets and babies.
I’ve been involved in the field of nutrition and health for many years, and I’ve seen various weird diets come and go. The weirdest ones tend to attract fanatical adherents who carry on with the eating program even when their health declines. Here are a few of the worst.
The Europeans are way ahead of us in the art of making offal taste good, with many varieties of sausage containing liver and other organ meats, blood pudding, pate and terrines. But America does have one folk food that makes it easy to enjoy organ meats: scrapple.
Chocolate is all the rage these days, consumed by the health conscious as well as junk food junkies, because everybody “knows” that chocolate is good for you. In fact, fantastic claims for chocolate’s medicinal powers have accompanied its spread—from an exclusive beverage for the Aztec elite to sugary snack for the masses—right up to the present day.
Many years ago, I visited a holistic doctor seeking help for my allergies, mysterious skin rashes and fatigue. I filled out a dietary questionnaire which he read carefully. Then he looked me straight in the eyes and pronounced: “I cannot help you unless you give up coffee.”
Physicians and researchers have debated the cause of tuberculosis (TB) for centuries. In Book 1, Of the Epidemics (410-400 BCE) Hippocrates describes the cause of TB as a “weakness of the lung,” a view shared by the dentist Weston A. Price.
The remedy for epidemics, according to the physician Rudolf Virchow–considered the father of modern pathology–is prosperity, education and liberty. The “remedy” for the current epidemic of Covid-19, imposed by governments throughout the world, is policies that create poverty, ignorance and submission.
We know that excess carbs like sugar and white flour can make us gain weight, but there are other culprits lurking in the food supply.
Our friendly building biologist, Greg Garrard of Shielded Healing, was here recently doing a checkup on our house, and we had an interesting discussion about magnetic fields. These days, people are focused on high-frequency radiation from wireless Internet technology, but strong magnetic fields are also a problem and are actually harder to shield.
In my last blog, I mentioned the movie Medicating Normal, in which a woman given sleeping pills becomes terribly addicted; yet, we have easy and nonaddictive ways to combat insomnia. There are four that come readily to mind; they are inexpensive and can be practiced at home or while traveling (often when we most have trouble getting to sleep).
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.
In this post, we’ll talk about reducing non-native electric currents and magnetic fields in the house and office.
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!
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.
