Im interested in your organic nutrition. My daughter, caitlin price is getting ready to make organic baby formula to use as suppliment in emergencies but still is breastfeeding her three month old daughter. Please let me know about anything organic eating including.magazines, recipes, how to make baby formula, baby food etc.
Naomi Aldort says
This is a late reply, but may be useful for other parents. The best “emergency” baby food is mother’s milk self-expressed. It can be frozen and available for any unlikely situation. If for some reason this is not possible, raw goat milk is the closest to mother’s milk.
For the most part a breastfeeding mother is always with her baby and so such emergency is very unlikely. A three months old should, ideally, be exclusively breastfed and in arms. Natural societies, and, happily, many of today’s mothers breastfeed for a few years which is best of the child’s emotional, physiological and cognitive development.
I am the author of Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves. In my teaching I address all issues from both, emotional, behavioral causes and food related. I hope this little post is helpful to someone with a baby or a toddler.
And always have a husband b4 having a baby.
Bonnie Stonehouse says
Excellent advice Joe….
Some folks don’t understand just how all consuming; and how much care and work is required when you decide to have a baby….alot just fall in love with the idea of having a baby without thinking it through at all….it’s like alot of women don’t actually realize that a baby is not a doll you can simply throw into your toy box when you don’t feel like “playing” with it and would rather go out partying with friends who don’t have children.
Having a child is a 24/7 responsibility.
It’s sad how many children are physically and psychologically abused by their impatient, immature, alot of times poorly educated and very young mother’s. Even when you wait and are married, more mature and more prepared with great jobs, although yes, rewarding – being a parent is still challenging and very hard work .
Always always ALWAYS……consider the consequences to your actions….think it though…..so, look before you leep, still waters run deep, and there won’t always be someone there to pull you out!
Right, and just any ole husband will do.
You think that young mothers are uneducated, physically and emotionally abusive? Far out. You sound really un-wise.
Don’t ever sleep with anyone you wouldn’t marry and be happy to have for your children’s parent.
Using alot repeatedly is annoying. While ideally, yes, have a husband before a child, is sound advice and God designed, sadly things don’t always go that way. Judging others does not help.
That is not always how things work out.
Idealism is idealism , realism is this moment and the joy you find in it.
I heard husbands are toxic? Anyone else getting along just fine without one?
How many husbands did you try to come to this conclusion?
Yeah !! I thought I had a husband but he was thinking something else ! Doesn’t always work out the way you plan it !
While I agree, no husband is better than an abusive husband. Sometimes the eye don’t show their true face until it’s too late, even though you‘ve been together for year before.
It is important to understand that some mothers really cannot breastfeed. My milk didn’t come in after my second child as I hemorrhage so badly that I needed to have a blood transfusion of 5pints. I did try from the start for about 4-6weeks however I realised my son needed to go on the bottle. I wish I had known at that time that goats milk would have been a better option than formula!.. thank you for your post

Looking for more information on eating natural & right!
Joy Carlton says
I have been told that I am gluten sensitive. Will I still be able to follow this nourishing plan? I have, in the past soaked my grains and nuts but recently stopped because my integrative health doctor recommended I avoid gluten.
Madam Bam says
Hi Joy, I am gluten intolerant as well, so I avoid: wheat, barley, spelt, oats and rye and their derivatives (often in sauces like soy sauce, vinegars). I find that quinoa, rice, millet are good substitutes for grains, and good bread can be made from rice flour, coconut or other nut flour, and tapioca starch or potato starch. You can eat all kinds of nuts as they don’t have any gluten in them – just soak them first to activate the nutrients and to remove the phytic acid. You can use genuine tamari sauce or apple cider vinegar instead of soy sauce and other vinegars. Be well!
Paula Anthis says
Rice is also a grain and has about 5% protein that can also affect gluten sensitive people like me. No Grain, No Pain by Dr Peter Osborne gives a full explanation and listing of the grains and grain proteins that are causing an inflammatory epidemic in America. He said my horrendous headache would be gone after 3 grain free day… and it was gone along with intense vertigo and vomiting episodes about every three weeks although I was already gluten free. Gluten being the protein in wheat. The other grains can be very problematic if already sensitized to wheat gluten. Wild Rice is a seed, not a grain! Yea!
My naturopathic doctor told me that the arsenic contained in rice is what is giving me eczema.
How do you soak nuts ?

I have Hashimotos..an autoimmune disease, and have recently been watching webinars from HEALTHTALKSONLINE.COM. THEIR NEXT ONE STARTS fEB 29TH FOR A FEW DAYS. THEY ARE FREE AND VERY INFORMATIVE. ABOUT THE MICROBIOME,9GUT GOOD AND BAD BACTERIA BALANCE ETC, GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, THE NEED TO AVOID GLUTEN, AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES THE BRAIN-GUT AXIS (CONNECTION), THYROID ETC tHE DIET IN THIS HERE WEBSITE IS SIMILAR TO THE pALEO DIET, WHICH I’M PARTIALLY PRACTISING. i HAVE ALSO BEEN WORKING PARTIALLY FROM dR kHARRAZIAN’S BOOK, “WHY DO I STILL HAVE THYROID SYMPTOMS WHEN MY LAB TESTS ARE NORMAL” AND HIS WEBSITE DRKNEWS.COM. He writes a lot about gluten and autoimmune diseases, especially Hashimotos. His diet is no grains, (Dr Perlmutter, brain specialist, also says no grains at all, as they all may act as gluten and cause harm) and Dr K says no nuts, legumes starchy foods, sugars, and pasture raised meat, wild fish (I dont eat fish anymore, especially from the radioactive Pacific Ocean) nor seaweed from the Pacific. cHECK OUT THESE mICROBIOME SUMMIT ONLINE. jUST START BY GOING TO HEALTHTALKSONLINE.COM AND SIGN UP FOR EMAIL NOTIFIATIONS AND FREE HEALTH WEBINARS ON VARIOUS HEALTH SUMMITS ONLINE. THEY ARE EXCELLENT.
Yes I bought and have been watching Dr. Izabella Wentz’ The Thyroid Secret ( Dr. Kharazian is interviewed be her on there). This series is helping me so much. She interviews 30some functional med docs on there and it is eye opening.! I have had Hashis for 11 yrs and thought I knew so much but have learned even more with this. Her books are great too. But then I found today How to Heal Autoimmune Diseaee in 30 Days- It is calling for a PLANT BASED quite Vegan diet to cure it. What does any one think of this compared to Paleo style? I am a bit confused. I am going to The Kellman ( Dr. Raphael Kellman) Center for 1 st time and will ask and will keep all posted.
I used Dr. Wentz’s book and completely eliminated my Hashi’s antibodies in less than 3 months. It was not vegetarian, and I did not keep it perfectly. I feel 20 years younger! Good luck!
A plant based diet is not surprisingly the cure for most of todays preventable diseases. I personally think its crazy that so many people are confused on which diet, how long they should diet, what they should eliminate, etc. A PLANT BASED DIET IS SO EASY: eat food, real food, whole food. Keep adding in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and grains all the time, variety! Our family of 4 (2 children ages 8 and 10) have committed to a vegan diet a year ago and our children have not gotten sick t all! We all feel great and feel good about how we are making the best choices for our environment. Read Comfortable Unaware and you’ll get it. Good luck!
oops, typo: the book is Comfortably Unaware…
Abby Jane says
Hi Wendy, just something to think about – I used to work in a holistic adult and pediatric dental office in CA. It was very noticeable that after a few years of being on a vegan diet that children had a lot of problems with their teeth, much more than non-vegan or even vegetarian children of similar backgrounds. The adults had problems too such as excessive cavities, weakened jaw bones and gum issues. Our health history records indicated that older vegan women sometimes developed osteoporosis at a younger age than would normally be seen in a vulnerable population (i.e. family history markers). This tended to correspond with the women being past menopause and having been vegans for more than 10 years. I know there was a study being done on all this, but I don’t know if the results are available as of yet on-line. One of the dentists I worked with thought the teeth problems were partly because people (especially young adults) on low protein diets tend to eat more sugar and sticky starches to control hunger, but it was an opinion and not a study.
Jaxon Basra says
Promote your plant-based diet somewhere else.
Knock yourself out Wendy. There are plenty of Vegan sites for you to hang out in.
I’ll stick to fresh meat, poultry, eggs seafood. Minimal carbohydrates if any.
Absolutely NO grains, fruits (except berries and avocados), nuts, sugars or high carbohydrate, starchy stuff, seeds, grains, vegetable oils. Simple. Never felt better.
I was very gluten intolerant until I started fermenting my grains. But in addition, I always use cracked, coarse, whole or at best meal ground. Flour ground is the worse. Also, in bread, I use no ingredients except 100% rye, salt and water and sourdough made of rye. I enjoy this stuff without any guts or inflammation issues at all. I also use stone ground oats, after having soaked them in a T of yogurt overnight and cooked. Besides oats and rye, I have not tried others. I am scottish and swiss, so I am sticking to what is working. I also only eat about a loaf over 1 or 2 weeks, so I don’t eat alot of it. Overall, I keep my carbs under 150g. I started out on Keto, and eventually moved to WPFD as I reached a plateau I didn’t want to lose weight anymore, and wanted to add more nutrients that keto required you to take suppliments for, which I didn’t agree with and grains provide all those missing nutrients, as do wild greens.
You’ve hit the nail on the head. It’s not gluten that is really the problem, it’s commercial flours that have been processed to be shelf stable. Real whole grain flour is not shelf stable so you cannot buy it at any store. You must grind it at home from the wheat berry the day you plan to use it to make bread. Another problem with commercial wheat products is glyophosate (round up), it is sprayed on the wheat crop right before harvest to desiccated (dry up) the wheat so you get a better harvest (for this reason only buy organic wheat berries). It’s the same kind of scenario with meat and dairy, the grass-fed meat and grass-fed raw dairy (Real Food) is a completely different product than the confinement, grain, pork tallow and chicken poop fed (literally) beef and dairy cow products! It matters what we eat, but it also matters what our food eats!
Avoid gluten. Once your body is adapted to this way of eating, you might be surprised to find out, that you can enjoy it again.
I want to be certified in nutrition or go through a program, and this is the direction I am wanting to go, can you recommend something that can be done long distance that follows these concepts?
Tim Boyd says
Check this link – http://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/what-should-i-do-to-be-a-nutritionist/
Jane Kraft says
have you looked at the Nutritional Therapy Association? I thoroughly enjoyed the program, and it is totally in line with Weston Price guidelines.
Lesley Neeley says
I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and followed that up with a program from Holistic MBA, an effective business training for holistic entrepreneurs.
Good Luck! The world needs health counselors!
Live Better and Love Live
I am trying to find a diet like the one above to begin with my family. I have two sons ages, 9 and 11. Both have seasonal allergies and both take inhaled steroids. One son was diagnosed with eog. Eosnophillic Gasteritits.
How much of this food and when and any suggestions on how to begin. My kids love crap…
We train our taste buds what to eat. Once they do not have the crap available & get into eating nutritiously, those taste buds can change, though I was a strong willed kid once. Make it a family affair … even choosing the veggies, going to a farm to see how they are grown & the goats & chickens, develop a wicking bed to grow food if possible, teach them to help you prepare & eat as family. Train those kids … don’t let them to go down the wrong path early on .. they will so appreciate what you did for them .. maybe later. There are youtubes of kids making smoothies & other healthy food … let them see what other kids are doing & help it become “normal” and fun.
To defeat allergies of a certain region, eat the local honey. My family moved to a place and got 2 beehives to help pollinate the fruit trees we had. My mother has really strong allergies, and claritin and others have stopped being effective, making her bedridden for weeks. We also had to keep all windows/doors closed with air filter on full blast.
But as soon as she had some of the honey from our beehives that all stopped. Until she went travelling.
Justin Roy Olson says
Having severe anxiety and now being told I had high cholesterol I am always anxious when it comes to deciding what to eat. I have made a rule only to eat meat, eggs, cheese, milk raw of course, grass fed butter from kerrygold, nutiva coconut oil, purified water reverse osmosis, nuts, seeds, beans, oats soaked when I can, veggies and fruits. fruits maybe 1-4 servings daily. I had a cholesterol total score of 241 LDL of 128 HDL of 104 VLDL of 9 and triglycerides of only 43 I have worried alot about this but am trying not to any advice? Anyone?
Bryan Campbell says
High LDL isn’t necessarily a problem; you need to know your LDL particle size. Small, dense particles are more likely to oxidize and cause damage than larger, buoyant ones. Eating cholesterol and (usually) saturated fat actually results in larger particle size, which studies show may actually protect against CVD rather than cause it. Exercise and losing weight also reduce small, dense LDL. Excess carbohydrates on the other hand may increase triglycerides and lower HDL, exactly the opposite of what you want.
Some tests for LDL particle size include the LDL-S3 GGE Test from Berkeley Heart Lab which will give you your average particle size – http://bhlinc.com – and the VAP Test which will analyze 21 different lipoprotein subfractions, including dominant LDL size – http://thevaptest.com. Many doctors won’t know what you’re talking about if you mention particle size.
K. Haugh says
I am not a medical professional, but from what I understand from numerous hours of research, your numbers seem fine. Your total cholesterol is not high (except to uninformed health professionals who think everyone’s total cholesterol should be under 200, or even 180, perish the thought!) Doctors are being told by pharmaceutical companies what our cholesterol levels should be, because they want to sell statin drugs. Read about the dangers of that right here on the Weston Price website. HDL below 40 is considered an independent risk factor for heart disease and your HDL is really good at 104. Another way Dr’s calculate your cardiovascular risk factor is to take your total cholesterol number and divide it by your HDL. For you, that would be 241 divided by 104, which is 2.3. It should be under 5 and anything under 3.5 is very good, so no worries there. Your Dr. should know that, and if he wants to make a big deal about your total cholesterol, I would look for a different Dr! Triglycerides of 43 is also very good. As Bryan Campbell commented, particle size is important, but based on your diet and your numbers I am sure you would have large buoyant ones, but if it is worrying you, have it tested.
Personally, my numbers are similar to yours: total 244, LDL 129, HDL 101, trig 68 and my particles are pattern A – the large desirable ones! My husband and I eat the same foods you do and his total cholesterol went up when we started eating the Weston Price way (we had previously been eating a low-fat diet) but his HDL went way up too, and lowered his cardiovascular disease risk. So, don’t worry, because that is not good for you!
Bryan Campbell says
Good points, I neglected to comment on Justin’s existing markers (which probably didn’t do much for his anxiety, my apologies). Triglycerides below 50 and HDL above 125 are outstanding numbers, and I would be shocked if his particle size was an issue as these numbers reflect somebody who’s doing everything right. Keep up the good work Justin!
Katie Star says
This is not medical advice but look into milk thistle. It helped my anxiety disappear in 2 weeks. Cheers.
Is rabbit not recommended? I can find no reference to it.
Tim Boyd says
We don’t recommend rabbit by itself – too much lean protein. Protein needs to be balanced with sufficient fat.
I have a daughter in law that has cystic fibrosis and is in the process of getting on the transplant list. I’m trying to get her to try kefir made from raw dairy. What are your thoughts on raw dairy for cf patients. Does it cause mucus, as cf produces excess mucus in the lungs and she doesn’t need that. I’ve heard that raw milk doesn’t produce mucus.
We don’t suggest bunny by itself – too much trim proteins. Protein needs to be healthy with adequate fat.
I am so sad to find out my daughter has 9 cavities and a root canal is “needed”. I feel like such a bad parent for allowing this to happen. I cried in the dentist office after finding out this horrible news and them saying she will need to be put to sleep while worked on. Lord knows that was my worst fear to hear! I wanna change my and my families life by eating healthier and to try to avoid cavities and I’m really praying that I find the perfect cure for her cavities to avoid the surgery on her. It saddens me that my husband isn’t on board and doesn’t support this natural healing of teeth. He is still brain washed unfortunately and he doesn’t pay enough attention to hear the details and pointers I give. Lack of support really sucks, but I am hoping with the research I do and perhaps a reply from many others, will push me to go to the right path. I have no clue what most of the things on the list are, but will google as much as possible. My question is, do you know if it’s safe to give cod liver oil and butter oil to a 2yr old and where would I find organic food? There’s a whole food store about an hour from me, but they’re so expensive!
I don’t know anything about healing of cavities but surely eating the wrong things increases their likelihood and severity.
I hope you got a second opinion on your daughter’s cavities. Too many dentists are in the business of calling any anomaly they can identify a cavity. Most aren’t. My college son went to the wrong place and they recommended two root canals he did not need.
I also had a dentist tell me that I needed 8 fillings. He was a con man. I had only had one filling in my 38 years by that time. How to go to needing 8 fillings just randomly. I found out later from a dental assistant, that had previously worked in his practice, he did that kind of stuff all the time! Of course I left that practice pronto!
Oil pull with coconut oil, it may help. It’s helped me significantly improve a cavity that previously definitely needed work.
Here is a link to a story about how two people, inspired by another personal success, healed their cavities.
Root Canals present their own challenges and complications. I heavily suggest you research them further before you make a decision. Can you see a visible abscess on the tooth? or on an x-ray of the tooth?
It’s so late to ask, but I have the same problem with root canal. Visible abscess on the teeth and x-ray picture, that shows a problem there. Can it be healed?
Sometimes weak teeth are caused by thyroid or gluten issues. Check for an underlying issue
Does anyone know how to cook chicken livers>
I blended my chicken liver a tad bit and then mixed it in a bowl with grass-fed ground beef and made cheese burgers of it. Add avacado on the cheese burgers and they’re delicious!!
I just fry it in the pan with some olive oil and this is delish! Don’t overcook though , it will not be tender. You can cover with lid.
Why do people fry things with olive oil? Olive oil is NOT suitable for high temp cooking PERIOD. Its best if it’s organic and expeller pressed and eaten as it is.
Use lard or ghee for frying anything.
Hi Marie, I have very low iron where I am always going to the ER. What helps me is cooking chicken liver is one of them beside smoothing with spinach, and kale including other fruits all together.
How to cook the chicken liver. Put in frying pan with very little water. When cooked you add in onion with some butter this help kill that smell. You could leave it like that, or you could add curry and other good seasoning you like. It’s good iron for me, and its really good……..
ESTELLE OGUS says

Is it ok to eat brocoli, cabbage and keale?
ESTELLE OGUS says
iF YOU HAVE HYPOTHYROIDISM YOU SHOULD NOT EAT THESE RAW, AS THEY ARE GOITROGENS..INTERFERE WITH THYROID HORMONE AND COULD MAKE YOU MORE HYPOTHYROID. iF THEY ARE COOKED IT DE-ACTIVATES THE GOITROGENS. SAME FOR BRUSSELS SPROUTS, BOK CHOY, CAULIFLOWER AND A FEW OTHER VEGGIES.sAME FOR SOY OR SOY PRODUCTS, UNLESS THEY ARE FERMENTED.
Hi Julie! I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter. 🙁 My son was told he would have to get surgery too. Although he still has a cavity, we have switched dentists. We were going to a pediatric dentist and honestly it was a money maker. we go to a family dentist now, and they will not do surgery on kids.
I would recommend going to a health food store in your area for cod liver oil…you can get cod liver oil with butter oil in it. It is expensive, just to warn you. my son took it great w/ applesauce. I will say, though, that it made him extremely tired, so we had to discontinue use. 🙁
i would also recommend going to farmers markets, or if you live near an amish community you can buy grass fed meats from them many times. this is what we do. Aldi also has a great assortment of organic food. I would say too to buy healthy what you can afford. Pinterest has some great tips on washing your veggies when you cant afford organic. Dont stress about it.
Also, dont try to change everything overnight—give your husband some grace and gradually change some things. for example, maybe change a snack, or 1-2 dinners. Not everything in a week. 🙂 I hope this helps you in some way.
Coconut oil is good, too and can be found at Walmart or Target.
Look for some good butter (many grocery stores carry grass-fed…it freezes well), some good meat (doesnt have to be organic) and do your best.
I also recommend praying—God can do all things that we can’t. 🙂
HTH! Blessings to you! 🙂
Thank you so much Kimberly! A friend told me of Krogers, which does have a great selection, but only one lane worth of organic food. I will definitely try Aldi 🙂
I love how Krogers produce lasts a lot longer than walmarts, not sure if it’s due to not having all the poison that walmarts produce is soaked with. I found a meat processing plant and it’s very expensive when comparing prices with walmarts meat. 1lb of grass-fed ground beef is $7.99 and walmarts is $3/lb. We are so use to eating out, fast food and dine in restaurants, so I just say if we can spend $50/day eating out, we can afford the healthier food for our daughters sake! I’ve been finding that cooking at home is actually fun and not so intimidating. Thank you again Kim <3
You may want to look at Doug Simon’s website: http://www.Barefoot Dentistry.com. He is a traditional medicine man. Saw him on the Home Medicine Summit put on by Marjory Wildcraft of the Grow Network. He has a method to grow enamel and heal cavities. Check it out. God bless your daughter and you.
John Lincoln says
This is a great list. It can be pretty hard to do all of these things, but I will sure try!
Justin Roy Olson says
Hi guys, It has been a very rough couple months for me; between moving and stress from health anxiety and OCD. I decided to tell that old doctor of mine to stick his statins where the sun don’t shine. I am back to eating at least 3 1/3 to 5 tablespoons coconut oil daily (I BELIEVE THIS IS WHY MY HDL IS 104) 100% grass fed organic beef or organic chicken at least 16 or more ounces daily. I am not taking at least 1 teaspoon of Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil…. and fermented cod liver oil and butter oil when I can. I am also eating about 2 pastured eggs daily. I probably eat tons and tons of saturated fat and cholesterol but no one has told me I need to limit it to any amount. I don’t know why I freaked out so bad after being vegan and switching to a WAPF diet knowing my cholesterol would increase. I still am going though bad health anxiety and OCD; like checking my pulse and blood pressure non stop thousands of times a day. I am unhappy unless it is 65 or below for my heart rate and 100/60 or lower for my blood pressure. I thank all of you for your help and wisdom. I’m very sad to hear about Mary Enig today 🙁
Janira B. says
Good for you in your transition from vegan eating. I found that reflexology has helped with my anxiety. A simple exercise on my wrist has done wonders.
Here’s the link of the exercise : http://www.chinese-holistic-health-exercises.com/reflexology-for-anxiety.html
Try to take the fermented cod liver oil daily and upping the dose.
My weight causes anxiety, so I threw away my scale. Maybe giving the blood pressure cuff to a friend to hold for you might help with constantly taking it.
Hang in there, I’ve been there. Some of that anxiety comes from what the misinformed doctors have told you. Keep your head up. Give it to God. Quit checking your pulse & BP. Trust me just quit it- I used to be that person & it doesn’t help. Good luck & since switching from a vegetarian diet you may be dealing with a copper imbalance or some other real imbalance that’s contributing to your anxiety. God bless you ❤️
Justin I realise this post is quite old. I hope you are doing well. The anxiety is something I suffered until I learners to meditate properly along with checking out of the matrix. We got rid of tv , Facebook and any other mental stimulant. Wasn’t long before the wife and I regained clarity and started enjoying life again along with our over all health improving. Modern American society is a literal killer of our health and humanity. Peace to you
My 14 year old son just had his braces off after about 6 weeks of having them on because he developed popping noises in his jaw. I’m terrified of tmjd. Are palate expanders safe for preventing tmjd? Thanks!
Justin – I had 2 little mercury silver amalgam fillings in one tooth. Replacing with composite fillings reduced my thoughts running at night even though very tired. Composite doesn’t last as long though. It felt like my head was going to pieces before versus more relaxed and calmer afterwards.
Mercury is extremely toxic with so many health and mental problems that people are not being told. You can do a search on why dentists do not tell their clients this.
Cure tooth Decay – Ramiel Nagel goes into more detail or a goggle search on health improvements through amalgam removals will be faster start.
Electrodiagnostic machines for testing should be used to remove the worst meridian blocking filling first with rubber dams, Air suction etc to prevent mercury filings from being reabsorbed.
Muscle testing Electrodiagnostic machines should be used to check for the more biocompatible replacement considered with expected life of the replacement. I have had composite molars last 3 to 4 years and went to porcelain caps with steel underlay that is a compromise.
Some people go to Mexico Or SA to reduce costs.
For mothers facing fillings for their children, please educate yourself on amalgam fillings and the ingredients of vaccinations.

E P says
I agree w/ALMOST everything in Dr. Price’s diet, except for the following two things:
1. He doesn’t seem to emphasize the importance of ORGANIC [“natural” (which also means “whole” btw) is NOT the same as “organic”].
2. He should ADD that, if one ISN’T able to eat correctly ALL his/her life, to the point of congesting one’s lymphatic system and liver…then at THAT POINT, eating FATS OF ANY KIND is VERY BAD. (You MUST clean out your lymph system and liver FIRST, BEFORE you continue to eat ANY TYPE OF FAT!)
If anyone disagrees w/either of these things, PLEASE tell me why (PLEASE give me your reasoning).

I don’t necessarily disagree with what you are saying but I think point #1 needs a little clarification. The term organic as it is usually used when referring to food today did not exist when Dr. Price was alive. Also, a lot of local food today may be as good or better than organic but not labeled organic because the producer can’t afford the expense.
Um, Dr. Price can’t “ADD” anything as he is no longer alive. This study was done in the 40’s and therefore the term organic didn’t exist!
E P says
I understand what you’re saying…food pre-World War II WAS mostly organic, and I ALSO AGREE w/what you said regarding organic labeling of food (it’s PATHETIC)! >:(
Desperate Mom: Both of my children have high BMI’s. I am tearfully and desperately trying to find a solution for me and my boys. I have tried many things but it is getting worse. Dairy/no dairy bread/no bread sugar from fruit/no sugar from fruit wheat bread oats/no wheat bread oats low fat/high fat….the list goes on. I am confused and overwhelmed on what exactly I can feed myself and my children. I am a meal planner,I make meal menus so any meals that I don’t have to grow, raise, or harvest in my own yard would be helpful. Encouragement would be wonderful. Blessings

Your CAPS Lock seems to be stuck
So after quickly browsing this site. i ASK WHAT SHOULD OUR DIET INCLUDE
Brouiller Nikolaij says
First off, thank you for your work and website. A mine of information indeed.
As to my question, this might sound silly but: HOW MUCH should one eat? How does one determine the amount of food we must consume?
I understand basic recommendations such as about 1grm of protein per lean kg of bodyweight, but as to the amounts of fats, “some” carbohydrates.. I would be grateful for an explanation.
(I am assuming you do not count calories. I don’t, as I find it rather useless, given our biological nature – unless one is eating refined sugars, that only provide energy and near naught else)
Just wondering what anyone thinks of potential health issues due to titanium plates and/or screws for surgical procedures or implants.
I’ve benn following this diet for for a couple years and it’s completely changed my life. I recommend it everyone. It healed my tooth decay. Thank you!
My daughter is 10yrs old. She started complaining about pain in her breasts.
What diet help me to slow down the process of getting puberty.help me
I noticed that it is stated in #16 “Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel.” I have read that you should only use stainless that is magnetic because it won’t have nickel in it which can leach into foods. Also, has the WAP Foundation looked into traditional clay cookware? I have one clay pot made from bentonite clay and it cooks amazingly well. I was wondering if the foundation has looked into the safety of these items. Here is the website I purchased from.http://miriamsearthencookware.com/
I noticed after cooking this way i.e. homemade bone broths, drying my own nuts and seeds and spices, that my electricity and grocery costs increased significantly…something to keep im mind when considering this dietary approach. One wonders whether it may be more economical and conveneint to use store bought organic gelatin & supplements.
“5. Use animal fats, such as lard, tallow, egg yolks, cream and butter liberally.”
What kind of cream, exactly? There’s so many kinds—half, single, whipped, whipping, double, clotted… then there’s sterilized and not sterilized, which I’m guessing is the same as pasteurization?
You could try, grassfed creme d’Isigny-Ste-Mere, AOP.
You should avoid any animal based protein and eat only A whole food diet.
Bonnie Stonehouse says
You absolutely want to eat animal fats(that have been grass fed) they are highest in nutrients! What do you think your brain is made from?
Our hunter/gatherer ancestors ate this way organic and unprocessed – there was no cancer or diabetes or autoimmune disease nor any of the diseaes that are now so prolithic in so called modern society today
So you’re telling me that eating a lot of fat is healthy?
Abbe Adams says
I’m at a stand still….. Please Please Help!!! My 9 year old son is the last of eight children (over 20 years time) that my body clearly did not supply his with the proper nutrients necessary for his teeth. By the time he was 6 months old and crawling with four front teeth, we noticed there was no enamel on his teeth. By the time he was 9-months old and crawling and slipping to hit his mouth on the floor, his teeth were chipped and literally rotting out of his mouth. I studied Dr. Weston A Price, read his book, and many other pro-WAPrice I could get my hands on. We have been eating clean and just as listed on the above list for the past 6 years. Grass fed beef, buffalo, chicken, eggs. Raw, unpasteurized milk these the last 2 months, (which my 9yo rarely drank milk before as it was), but raw butter for the past three years. I make quality veggie shakes, use organic veggies and fruits, little to no grains. After another trip for cleaning at the dentist, he still has a mouthful of cavities (4 permanent molars, plus 5 baby teeth). I have spent tons of money purchasing the fermented cod liver oil/butter oil from Green Pastures for my four children at home who all have cavities. However, I realized that there is no recommended quantity to take of the capsules to reverse dental cavities. So, I had my younger children taking two capsules of these, plus use perfect oils as taught by Dr. Price. I’ve recently begun having them drink 1/4 tsp pink/himalayan/hawaiian salt in water to up their mineral absorption. I understand we are what we are assimilate, and am curious what I’m missing to heal his cavities! I’m desperate. My family support system is waning wildly as each dental cleaning reveals more and more cavities. Please HELP!!!
Cathy Rooks says
Maybe check for hidden food allergy/intolerance (including
cow’s milk) that may be interfering with mineral absorption.
Abbe Adams says
Please add this to the above….. We use stevia, honey, or grade B maple syrup in sparse amounts. I brush his teeth myself this last year, and use floss. I do not understand that I’m doing all the things listed on Dr. Price’s health regime and he still winds up with cavities that are not healed. There are way too many positive testimonies of children and adults with major tooth decay that have been reversed. I want to be among them. What else can I do for his diet? Thank you.
Abbe Adams says
I’m looking for a natural dentist to take my family to that actually believes and practices these things. Our dentist only knows to drill and fill and I’m not satisfied with that, yet I do not want my sons teeth to continue deteriorating til they fall out.
Alexandra van der Meij says
How much vitamines and minerals do you advice for severe artritis patients? I’m 83 years old and have artritis for more than 40 years.
Thanks for the reply,
Alexandra van der Meij
Please dont get me wrong I am just wondering are you all living in America and if so how is it you have access to all these organics and farm grazed animal products and wild caught fishes and so on. I mean what kind of budget would a family of 5 has to cater to their family nutritional needs. This is sad to say but unless you live on an island in the Carribean are a farmer in America or filthy rich I cant see how you will be able to keep with such dietary demands. Good luck to all the fortunate rich people of the world or the lucky ones who can eat that way.
Vincent Villalobos says
I’m new to the site and wondered where I might be able to get a listing of ranchers in my area who deal in grass fed meats. Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks!
Ed Brancheau says
I found this list to be very helpful and I’m going to try a lot of the suggestions. First up, I going to start using filtered water while I cook.
Julian Laub says
It would be wise to put the commentary field up front and sort them in reverse order.
Now, I am not clear about the damage carbohydrates do to the teeth, so what it the weston price perspective on potatoes?
Especially in regards to tooth helth.
What about bread from sprouted wheat flours (non sourdough)? We have Zero access to a reputable raw dairy (without extensive travel time). Our Whole Foods (50 mins away) carries grass fed cream top dairy (organic valley brand) will that be ok??
Zero chocolate? Even dark and midnight dark (72+%)?
Anna Cesnjevar says
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans is the Nation’s go-to source for nutrition advice. Published every 5 years for public health professionals, each edition of the Dietary Guidelines reflects the current body of nutrition science. These recommendations help Americans make healthy food and beverage choices and serve as the foundation for vital nutrition policies and programs across the United States.
Deniz Olmez says
Diffucult but possible “Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel” is the best part
Any suggestions of what to replace the meat with for a vegetarian? I’m a vegetarian for multiple reasons including the fact that I strongly dislike the taste and texture of it. I started eating eggs regularly, I take fish oil supplements, and I have dairy sometimes but it’s the typical pasteurized stuff.
Maureen Diaz says
Leah, there really is not replacement for meat. We would suggest your need for meat may be minimal, particularly if you are not bearing children or in a period of growth. However, at least a small amount of meat in the diet is beneficial. Perhaps meat stock made into stew would suffice for you. Pastured eggs are a fantastic food. There is a wide variety of difference between various fish oil supplements and it would be best if you take a look at the processing and nutrient content. We recommend several including Green Pastures Blue Ice fermented cod live oil, Dropi, and Premiere brands. Pasteurized dairy is not recommended really at all, other than for cooking (and then only pastured & organic). Some raw, pastured dairy in the form of cheese, yogurt, and some fresh is the best of any and very helpful for most.
Cool info about Dietary Guidelines and how you cook and what you use is very important thanks for your healthy info . Thanks
Peter Brittain says
Wonderful advice here with this list. I think in relation to wild fish v farm raised fish that wild, fresh fish taste much better too!
Sandy wenger says

Actually I am sick and tiered from these dentist doing drilling and cleaning on all visits. I’m looking for a natural dentist to take my family to that actually believes and practices these things. Our dentist only knows to drill and fill and I’m not satisfied with that, yet I do not want my sons teeth to continue deteriorating til they fall out.
Kody A Kryzanowski says
Hi there, I don’t know if this question was answered in the comments above or not, I’m wondering if healthy animal fats along with starchy carbohydrates will help metabolize those carbohydrates?
I currently have candida overgrowth and the dietary guidelines provided by the Weston A Price foundation have been working wonderfully for me, the main thing that confuses me is what to pair with starchy carbohydrates…

Martin Dow says
Hi Jill you did a great job this dietitian plan is simply amazing and soon iam going to start working on it let see howit gose.
discovered Weston price around a month ago, feeling amazing so far transitioning into this diet/lifestyle.
I work in a trades environment (boilermaking) as a small woman and am limited to a cooler bag with freezer bricks, would anyone have any recommendations on lunch ideas that are really filling and full of nutrients?
(so far I’m thinking steamed broccoli and cauliflower with organic grass-fed ghee butter, and eggs scrambled with salmon as a lunch idea but I’m worried if I use fresh cooked salmon the night before that it won’t stay cold enough to be good by lunchtime and I want to avoid food poisoning.
I’ve used canned wild-caught salmon in the past and know it lasts but I’m worried canned salmon isn’t the greatest idea in the long run (heavy metals).
Also wondering if sweet potato is okay to eat if prepped correctly?
I have a fast metabolism and have learnt through this diet that by eating nutritious foods (fish, eggs, grass fed meat) that I’m full for longer but with only 2 small lunch breaks at work I’m hoping to find good lunch ideas and keep myself healthy with such a physically demanding job and limitations to no fridge at work.
I’m in subtropical Australia with temperatures getting over 35 degrees in summer (coming into spring now).
thankyou in advance for any advice.
Terry Wedler says
Thank you for all the great information in this website.,
I just found out about this Westin Price way of eating. I have osteoporosis and I think this eating plan will help. I am very concerned though with making sure I get enough of the bone building nutrients. I am also concerned about how all vegetables seem to have oxalis acid and beans and nuts have phytates. I learned about steaming the vegetables and sprouting and soaking the phytates out.
I have a lot of questions. I would like to talk to a Weston Price nutritionist. If you could give me some names I would really appreciate it.
Thank you so much.

Love the idea, had never thought about “intermittent” fasting. I used to fast once a year for 3-4 days or so, just water. Kind of stopped doing that and meanwhile gained weight and got unhealthier. This site is a great motivator and offers alternatives that are flexible enough that anyone can do it. It’s a lot harder for me to fast 3-4 days once a year than incorporating fasting into my everyday life a little at a time. I’m now doing the 12-hour daily fast, eating 8am to 8pm. I want to lose weight and build up to the 16-hour fast, eating 10am-6pm or 11-7pm. I’m a vegetarian. I usually buy my @ https://kinvegan.com/ or https://ocimer.com , but so some of the recipes don’t work for me, but others sound delicious and simple to make. Great advice and recommendations westonaprice Thank you very much !!!🙏🏻
Clases de meditación online I think that apart from a delicious homemade diet and fresh food, we must add the ingredient of Consciousness through mindfulness when we sit down to eat, when we are conscious at the time of eating, we take better advantage of food, we absorb more nutrients and we build a better autoimmune system. One of my favorite places to learn mindfuleating is http://www.hoymedito.com. The Spanish language meditation classes are wonderful, now I eat more slowly, with less anxiety and enjoy my moments of good food. Thank you
Nice article here! I take cod-liver oil daily and started taking it since I was a child. I always have wholemeal food…they are best for your overall health and gut!
