As believers in the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, we (Gena & Johanna) are collaborating on a research project that we hope will illuminate the wonderful outcomes for health experienced by those who follow a traditional diet.
Our project is currently in the form of an online website, so please take a look at:www.growingsuccessstories.org. This project is designed to collect data that can be used for further research and also as a resource for those exploring a traditional diet. We are building an ongoing resource of narratives by real people to help demonstrate the power of healing foods.
We ask that you take the time to share your own story and submit it via our site.
We only need 4 short paragraphs, more if you wish. We want to know what is most important to you, how you first discovered this way of sourcing, preparing and consuming food and what results you’ve seen. Please know that when you submit a story you can choose to keep your name confidential if desired. We are not intending on publishing every story, but archiving all stories into categories, again, to create an ongoing, dynamic collection for future research.
Growing Success Stories welcomes all stories, from mothers, college students, 20 somethings, the middle aged, and the elderly. Photos are requested but not required.
We thank you, from our whole hearts, in advance, for the gracious offering of your time and energy in getting this project off the ground.

A bit about us:
This project began because of a vision that is at the core of Johanna’s current doctoral program with CIIS (California Institute of Integral Studies). As an advanced holistic nurse who has worked in the hospital setting with kids and teens suffering from mental illness, she experienced first hand how little our current medical system recognized the importance of a real food diet and belly health in the recovery of these disorders. Her doctoral work aims to address and explore diet’s role in ensuring healthy growing families.
Gena is the Boston, MA chapter leader and co-collaborator on this project. She first came to WAPF via a friend and has used the GAPS diet to heal her son’s eczema. Gena is a firm believer in the transformative and healing power of high quality food. She is a practicing Nutrition Consultant and food and farming enthusiast in Boston, MA.
