The Weston A. Price Foundation was founded in 1999 to publish the research stuffs of Dr. Weston Price. It is a nonprofit tax-exempt charity. Dr. Weston A. Price was a Cleveland dentist who is introduced as ‘Isaac Newton of Nutrition’.
Dr. A. Price traveled all over the world to study isolated human groups. He studied on the inhabitants of Switzerland, Gaelic communities, African tribes, Eskimos and Indians of North America, Australian Aborigines, Melanesian and Polynesian South Sea Islanders, New Zealand Maori and the Indians of South America. In a word, the entire world turned into his laboratory.
After a long research, Dr. Price realized the real causes of dental decay and physical degeneration, resulting from nutritional deficiencies. In his research conclusion, Dr. Price stated that humans achieve perfect physical form as well as perfect health generation after generation merely while they take foods including right nutrient and the essential fat-soluble activators originated only from animal fats.
The main goal of the Weston A. Price Foundation is restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet that should be achieved through proper education, research and activism. In order to reach at the goal the foundation does support following activities:
- Provide accurate nutrition instructions
- Organic and biodynamic farming
- Pasture-feeding of livestock
- Community-supported farms
- Honest and informative labeling
- Organized parenting and nurturing therapies
The Dr. Weston A. Price Foundation is trying to establish a laboratory to test nutrient content of foods, to do research on ‘X Factor’ and to find out the effects of typical preparation methods on nutrient stuff and availability in whole foods. The foundation believes that modern science and technology can jointly promote our environment and human health at significant level. The foundation publishes a quarterly journal namely ‘Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts’. The journal explores the scientific validation of nutritional, agricultural and medical traditions across the world. It is a mega store of articles containing latest scientific research information and output, accurate human diets, secured agriculture and holistic therapies.
Weston A. Price provides evidence that the people who use natural diets having adequate nutrient stuffs stay better rather than the people take processed foods. Many nutritionists and diet experts believe that saturated fats are great for physical forming but grains, pasteurized or formatted foods and excess carbs are bad.
The Weston A. Price Foundation has been researching and tutoring people about proper nutrition. Like many diet specialists, the foundation has been encouraging people to change their nutritional approach. As its recommendation, if we underestimate taking diets closer to the paleo diet, we might face severe nutrition and health problems and we will have to pay for it.
In general, diets containing several types of animal products are used in high quantity but surprisingly no plant-based or vegetarian diets are there. People who live entirely on plants remain healthy and extremely fit. In many regions of Asia, people eat lots of rice, beans and leaf products that mean natural foods and thus they maintain healthy life.
Properly prepared dairy in fermented produce from Grass fed cows is highly valued in many natural cultures. Milk coming from grass-fed animals makes for a completely different food than what we typically find in grocery stores. That milk is high in essential nutrients for our body contains saturated fat, high level of carotenes, butyric acid and vitamin K2.
Dr. Price suggested some foods such as fish, eggs, bone marrow, cod liver oil and raw milk. All of these foods contain high saturated fat and several fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, D and K2. These vitamins are also helpful to stimulate other vitamins and thus help necessary body processes. In addition, these vitamins work conjointly to make strong bones, articulations as well as cavity-free teeth. In a word, the above-mentioned vitamins are very important for pregnant women, nursing women as well as growing kids.
