In this week’s video, I talk to you in depth about the importance of regular consumption of Traditional Fats and Sacred Foods. The nonindustrialized cultures studied by Dr. Weston A. Price during his travels around the world in the 1920’s and 1930’s greatly revered these foods and great care was given to provide them for pregnant women and growing children to ensure the robustness and health of future generations.
While sometimes primitive, these cultures were most definitely not stupid as sometimes portrayed. They knew that these sacred foods held the key to the survival of their culture through effortless reproduction, strong children, and protection from infectious and degenerative disease.
The bottom line is that you will not achieve your best health without regular and liberal consumption of these foods. You may do many other things right: grind your own flour, eat only organic produce and clean meats, consume unprocessed grassfed milk, avoid pharmaceutical drugs/processed foods and even eat fermented foods and still be plagued with degenerative illness.
The fat soluble vitamins A, D, and K – also known as Activator X are found in high concentrations in the sacred foods. Taking supplements of these vitamins in isolation does not achieve the same effect and confers a false sense of security that health is being maintained when in fact, it is slipping away slowly but surely.
If you do not include these traditional fats and sacred foods in your diet now, find ways to incorporate them immediately. No other single change to your diet and lifestyle will give you the same benefits!
