Q & A

Q: Why Cod liver oil?
A: Our most important super-food!
Once a standard supplement in traditional European societies, cod liver oil provided fat-soluble vitamins A and D, which Dr. Price found present in the diet of primitives in amounts ten times higher than the typical American diet of his day.
Dr. Price found that cod liver oil combined with butter oil produced excellent results.
Your diet should include both good quality organice butter and cod liver oil.

Q: Why Raw Milk?
A: Animal fats (raw milk, cream and butter) are essential
Our bodies require nutrient-dense animal food, especially animal fats, to be healthy generation after generation.
Our cells, bones, brain, heart, lungs, kidneys and reproductive organs all require the nutrients found uniquely in animal fats to function properly.

Q: Why Kombucha?
A: Kombucha tea [pronounced kom-BOO-cha] tastes somewhat like a sparkling apple cider and is said to enhance the immune system.
It is a traditional fermented beverage used in many cultures to promote wellbeing.

Q: What is Wise Traditions?
A: Wise Traditions is the Weston A Price Foundation's informative quarterly journal.
It is filled with timely articles on nutrition, foods, fats and holistic therapies. It has health updates and book reviews, plus educational materials for holistic health professionals.
Membership to the Weston A Price Foundation includes the Wise Traditions quarterly journal.

About Our Chapter

The Local Chapter

We are a local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation that is composed of people who share a common interest in nutrient dense food and the nutritional principals of the Weston A. Price Foundation. We come from many different backgrounds, and include self-described “recovering vegetarians”, former sugar addicts, and survivors of the Standard American Diet.

For my family, our focus on foods extends beyond the meals we cook at home and beyond the support of local and regional farmers, to supporting a broader movement. For the past several years, my family has belonged to the Weston A Price Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to restoring the place of nutrient-dense, traditional foods to our diets through research, education and activism.

What is a Chapter leader?

Our mission is to EDUCATE the local community on the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation, including TRADITIONAL FOOD preparation, nutrient-dense foods, and sustainable agriculture.

Our guide to learning about traditional foods and applying proper food preparation techniques is Nourishing Traditions; "The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats", by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig PhD.

To learn more about the Weston A. Price Foundation, please visit: www.westonaprice.org

The work of the chapter leader is on a voluntary basis and and eventually we'll bring in viable speakers to keep us informed about the on-going issues in farming, health and organic topics. 

What Chapter leaders do

As chapter leaders for the Weston A Price Foundation, our main purpose is to connect you with good, wholesome, properly-raised/grown foods to nourish you and your family.

  • 1. Help you find locally-grown organic and biodynamic vegetables, fruits and grains; and milk products, butter, eggs, chicken and meat from pasture-fed animals.
  • 2. Maintain a list of local health care practitioners who support the Foundation's teachings regarding diet and health
  • 3. Represent the Foundation at local conferences and fairs.
  • 4. Organize social gatherings, such as support groups and pot luck dinners, to present the Weston A. Price Foundation philosophy and materials.
  • 5. Present seminars, workshops and/or cooking classes featuring speakers from the Weston A. Price Foundation, or local speakers who support the Foundation's goals and philosophy.
  • 6. Represent the Weston A. Price Foundation philosophy and goals to local media governments and lawmakers.
  • 7. Lobby for the elimination of laws that restrict access to locally produced and processed food (such as pasteurization laws) or that limit health freedoms in any way.
  • 8. Publish a simple newsletter containing information and announcements for local chapter members
  • 9. Work with schools to provide curriculum materials and training for classes in human development and home economics.
  • 10. Help the Foundation find outlets for the sale of its quarterly magazine.

We highly encourage you to connect DIRECTLY with local farmers so that you can ask them questions or even tour the farm yourself. Join a food co-op, or buy a share in a CSA (Community Shared Agriculture). These are simple and powerful ways to support farmers who are producing healthy and sustainable products. Farmers’ markets can also be a good way to connect with farm-fresh, local meats, fruits/vegetables and eggs.

Oil Pulling, Wonderful Therapy

I recommend it as a simple, inexpensive way to do some detoxifying at a slow and manageable pace. It makes your teeth whiter almost immediately, and also the eyes become clearer and brighter. The proponents of oil pulling, which comes from India and Ayurvedic medicine, attribute many healing benefits to the practice. This is a good introductory website.

The Weston A Price Foundation challenges politically correct nutrition and the diet dictocrats, promoting wise traditions in food, farming and the healing arts.

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson (1778)

Life in all its splendor is Mother Nature obeyed. – Weston A. Price, DDS

"The myriad of health problems plaguing modern society result from weaknesses in the body’s physiological foundations brought on by poor nutrition...understand and reverse the tragic and unsuspected effects of the modern diet..." — The Nutritional Therapy Association

"When you gradually add in nutrient-rich foods, you simply stop feeling cravings. You run out of space in your belly for the old junk. Instead of craving, you feel full, fulfilled, and content." Kathy Freston
