In this episode, we have the wonderful Sally Fallon Morell jo in us from the Weston A Price Foundation. Sally is one of the foremost global leaders in nutrient-dense ancestral living through respecting and returning to our traditional diet, and is driven by a truly noble and caring cause.
Sally is the Founder and President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, that she setup in 1999, as well as a best-selling author. The Weston A Price Foundation is held in high regard by global nutritional leaders, often considered the definitive source of traditional nutritional wisdom. Those who attempt to return full health and human potential back to western societies usually cite the work of this foundation.
The foundation showcases and extends the brilliant one-of-a-kind and unrepeatable work of of Weston A Price, a dentist, who travelled the world observing the contrast in diet and health of indigenous tribes when compared to modern western cultures.
He performed observational studies, nutritional testing, took thousands of pictures of indigenous people, and hypothesised that the departure from traditional nutritional principles was the leading cause to the health issues we were (and are ) seeing. He is most famous for documenting his findings in the his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.
In this interview, Sally introduces us to the key principles of a nutrient dense diet through describing Weston A Price’s observations, talking about the myriad of issues in the modern diet and guidelines, and placing a positive emphasis on our need to embrace saturated fat.
Most of all, Sally argues strongly for the need to take full responsibility as adults on the health of our children, and just how important a nutrient-dense diet is to their development from preconception through to a young adult. This is a heart warming and convincing plea, backed up with logic and science.
