A Little Background on Weston A. Price

Life in all its splendor is Mother Nature obeyed.

- Weston A. Price, DDS

Who is Weston A. Price?

In the 1930s, Dr. Weston A. Price, an American dentist, traveled to isolated parts of the globe to study the health of populations untouched by western civilization. While searching for factors responsible for good dental health in these isolated cultures, he found that overall physical degeneration occurs when we leave behind traditional diets for the Standard American Diet (SAD).

Weston A. Price's Health Nutrition Discoveries

When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated peoples he found that, in comparison to the American diet of his day, they provided at least four times the water-soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat-soluble vitamins, from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish, organ meats, eggs and animal fats— the very cholesterol-rich foods now shunned by the American public as unhealthful.

These healthy traditional peoples knew instinctively what scientists of Dr. Price's day had recently discovered — that the fat-soluble vitamins A and D were vital to health because they acted as catalysts to mineral absorption and protein utilization. Without them, we cannot absorb minerals, no matter how abundant they may be in our food. 

Activator X

Dr. Price discovered an additional fat-soluble nutrient, which he labeled Activator X, that is present in fish livers and shellfish, and organ meats and butter from cows eating rapidly growing green grass in the Spring and Fall. All primitive groups had a source of Activator X, now thought to be vitamin K2, in their diets.

Weston A. Price offerings at Healthy Goods

Dr. Price's findings are still relevant today, and he has inspired many people to return to a "traditional" method of eating for better health. 

Our traditional food offerings are free from refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, white flour, and toxic synthetic additives.
