My Girl Sally!

Just caught this video on Sally Fallon Morell's visit to the UK.  For those who are not aware, Sally is the founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of the public on traditional diet principles rediscovered by Dr. Weston A. Price.  

Dr. Price wrote his book back in the 1930's during a time when non-modernized people, not yet exposed to modern foods, still existed.  He studied them to find answers to why their health was so robust; they had no tooth decay, their jaws had room for all the teeth (no braces), they were free of degenerative diseases, and they were...happy!  Yes, they were free of depression, ADD, ADHD, and every other capital letter we can gather together to explain our newest fun malfunction of the human psyche.

I have been studying the invaluable information of Dr. Price and Sally for several years now, but I always pick up something new when I give a listen to one of Sally's lectures.  I hope you feel the same after listening....and I encourage you to do just that.  It may be the best hour you've spent in your life!

Well, I have enjoyed the first page of your blog very much. YOu ought to be writing books...or are you? You have a very appealing way with your writing. I feel like you are talking directly to me...something I rarely feel on other blogs.
Anyway...before you think it weird that a stranger be so gushy...I will stop commenting.

I will follow your blog and look forward to more in the future.
All I need to do yet before going to bed in to listen and watch this video.

Hey Tracy! So excited to read a comment. Was getting lonely out here. Glad to make you feel included in this awareness that I love to share. Glad to meet you and will be thinking of your comments when I write! Keep in touch.

I was so enjoying the vimeo you posted on healthy eating by Sally Fallon, but help! It wouldn't go to the end. Only about 2/3 of the video would load. Do you know where I can see the whole thing? This was so good and eye opening. I have bought the nourishing traditions book and am excited and oh so overwhelmed. How did you do it? Or did you always know to eat and live this way?

Thanks so much for replying to my comments.
I'll be reading more of your blog tonight. I hope I will learn a bit about how you go about eating this way.

Hi Tracy, Sorry about the video. I believe I embedded that from Kimberly Hartke site. Try her at www.hartkeisonline.com. I'm sorry, it was awhile ago, and I get things from many different sources. You can also try youtube for many items on Sally Fallon. Also, www.westonaprice.org has many links and great info on all the subjects I blog about.
As for following the diet, I went cold turkey! I'm crazy like that. I threw away every processed food (even all the so called "health food") I had in one felll swoop. I do eat compromise foods, and when visiting others or on vacation or away from home, we make many concessions.
It really becomes second nature when you get used to it. I buy many foods at a local health food store, other things like the raw milk, raw cheeses, raw butter, raw cream, pastured eggs, grass-fed meats and eggs all from a co op that I joined through a local naturopathic doctor. It's costly, extra work, and, at times, quite an effort; however, it is an effort, I think, that will affect more than just this generation, if you get my drift. And, also, we began this great effort about 3 1/2 years ago. To be honest, it was the loss of a pregnancy that shook me up enough to question many things....including my diet. I love and feed three wonderful children, and feel that they are worth every effort and every cost! So glad to read there are others just like me. Great love!
