NOURISHING TRADITIONAL DIETS
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6
Animal fats, organ meats, properly prepared whole grains, fermented foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why these are vital factors for maintaining good health today. Beginning with a presentation showing Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Ms. Fallon Morell explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets, which conferred beauty, strength and freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods—foods that your family will actually eat—back into your diet, including easy breakfast cereals, soups, sauces, snack foods, fermented condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you.
BRINGING UP BABY
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7
The foods that baby eats during his first two years will largely determine his health throughout the rest of his life. Nutrient density is key for giving baby a good start-that means liver and egg yolks, not applesauce and rice cereal. This talk will give practical advice and also provide concerns about exclusive breastfeeding and baby-led weaning.
THE CONTAGION MYTH
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7
All disease is the result of three causes: malnutrition, toxins, and injury. Microbes (bacteria, fungus, “viruses”) are often present in disease, but they are not the cause. This workshop will include discussion of malaria, the black death, scurvy and pellagra (once considered contagious), leprosy, rabies, childhood illnesses, anthrax, TB, smallpox, polio, Spanish flu and Covid-19.
