Now to give you another little taste of what we will cover in this class:

Are you a victim? Do you think that cancer is just waiting to pounce on you and there’s not a thing you can do about it?

Or are you willing to take personal responsibility for you health?

If you regularly read this newsletter, I suspect you eagerly search for the truth about health and incorporate health-building modalities into your lifestyle. That eagerness is so exciting because there’s so much we can do for ourselves to prevent disease and increase our level of health and vitality.

My search for health began back in the early 1980’s when I was feeling miserable and knew that my training in conventional medicine would not help me get better. In 1984 at a seminar sponsored by the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, I learned some amazing truths about nutrition and wondered why I had not heard it sooner. (After all I had been through 4 years of medical school, internship and continuing medical education.)

Well, maybe I just wouldn’t have accepted this information until my illness sent me looking for answers.

Anyway, this information changed my life and my medical practice, helping me and thousands of my patients. I have shared it with you in various ways through this newsletter over the years, but I haven’t introduced you to Dr. Weston A. Price, the man who travelled all over the world in the 1930’s to find out why people in the modern world were so unhealthy.

As a dentist Dr. Price actually wanted to find out why people had so much tooth decay and gum disease. He suspected that diet had something to do with it, so he decided to study people who still ate their native, “Traditional Diet” instead of the “modern diet”.

So in the 1930’s Dr. Price, DDS set out on his journey, travelling 150,000 miles to visit 12 different cultures on 5 continents, studying the effects of diet on teeth and general health. He began his travels when he was in his 60’s and was still traveling in his 70’s.

His premise: “modern people” were eating too much white flour and sugar and not enough health building foods. Eating wrong kinds of modern food causes tooth decay, general physical degeneration, and facial and dental arch deformities.

He visited and examined many “primitive cultures” around the world. Isolated from “the products of trade” (sugar, white flour, canned food, coffee, etc.) they thrived on their native diet. As long as they ate their native diet, they had healthy teeth (only 1% tooth decay), great physiques, well-formed faces, wide dental arches, no crowding of their teeth. The felt great emotionally, mentally and physically. Since their brains weren’t irritated by the devitalized food, they were happy people who got along well with one another.

But things changed remarkably when they went to live in a city or on a plantation or a ship came by and they adopted the “modern” diet. In these folks Dr. Price saw rampant tooth decay and physical degeneration.

Even worse, parents eating the modern diet gave birth to offspring with narrowed faces, deformed sinuses, narrowed nostrils, narrow jaws, crowded teeth and other physical deformities. If the parents returned to their native diet, their subsequent offspring had the normal facial configurations of their “tribe” and no physical deformities.

The native (no matter what part of the world) diet always included:

Very adequate amounts of unprocessed animal protein, from animals fed by nature


Whole grains

A source of fat-soluble vitamins

A source of vitamin C


The native diet sometimes also included:

Dairy products


Something about messing with the way God made food causes our teeth and gums to degenerate. But more than that, the teeth serve as a window on the rest of the body. Teeth are the first visible indication of degeneration and deformity.
