It is so good to see my oat article in the journal. I have since devised a recipe for sourdough oatcakes. They are delicious and I thought you might like to try them. You can find the recipe at ancestralkitchen.com/2023/01/24/ sourdough-oatcakes/.
Many thanks for all you do.
In medical school, we were taught that viruses have some qualities of living things and some qualities of non-living things. This is absurd. Living things have a life force that makes them alive. That’s the definition of “living.”
In humans, it is the soul, which is rational and doesn’t perish. With other creatures, they’re either living (with a life force) or non-living, like a rock. A living thing can be a single-celled creature like an amoeba or a complex creature like a plant or a chicken or an elephant. They all have a life force that returns to the earth when they perish.
Non-living things have no self-activity in themselves. Yet, according to the medical establishment, viruses do things. They attach to a cell. They inject their genetic material and take over the machinery of the cell and then break forth to repeat the process on other cells. If they do things, they’re “living.” However, they have no physical structures that are the signs of a living thing. They are supposedly just a snippet of genetic material in a protein capsule. Even a simple amoeba or a bacterium has parts that serve functions, allowing it to do things, even simple things like respire and take in nutrients and grow. They have things like a nucleus and mitochondria.
A virus has no real “parts” that give it any sign of being a living thing. There is no other such example in nature. Based on all this, they are both living and non-living, an absurdity. Therefore, they don’t exist. Any such particles observed are something else, not what the “doctors” tell us.

HEE HAW FOR HEALTH
We have one of the first and only donkey dairies in the United States, located near Luther, Oklahoma. We started milking donkeys for our daughter when she got an autoimmune disease after a case of strep throat, which attacked her brain. We were one of the few who got a correct diagnosis early. It’s called PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections). The top doctors in the nation said their “best guess was antibiotics every day for the next thirteen years.”
We stubbornly refused to accept this as the answer. We cried a lot, prayed a lot and cried some more. God ended up answering our prayers in an unlikely way, through an unlikely source. . . donkey milk. In other countries and throughout history, donkey milk is well known for its health benefits. Hippocrates was the first to prescribe it, and nuns even used donkeys as wet nurses for orphan babies, but in America it was practically unheard of, made even more difficult to find since the donkey gives only a few ounces of milk a day, and only when there is a healthy baby donkey to share the milk with.
So we did what any desperate parents would do for their child: we bought donkeys. Our little herd began with three American mammoth donkeys. These critically endangered donkeys are the descendants of President George Washington’s first imported French donkeys, royal gifts from the King of France. It was our first president’s dream to create a breed of mule that would be strong enough to work this new land, and for this, he needed a large, strong breed of donkey to sire these mules. When the mule fell out of favor with the advent of the tractor, the need for mammoth donkeys declined, and so did their numbers.
We now provide our raw donkey milk for children and adults who need it for their health, and we were the first to import organic, cruelty-free donkey milk to the USA.
We fought an environmental battle in Oklahoma (regarding toxic biosolids and humanure on farmland) and took a bill to the Capitol in 2022, angering some powerful state representatives in the process. Coincidentally, not long after we had state and federal agents show up at our farm to investigate us based on an “anonymous” phone call and a call from the FDA. Shortly after that, the FDA seized our imported milk and held it for over seven months. We are still battling to bring it back to the USA for families that need it.
Our imported donkey milk is used in a world-renowned program at Southern California Allergy Institute, which helps children who are anaphylactic to foods and heals them from allergies.
We also have a nonprofit, Hee Haw for Health, at our Oklahoma Donkey Dairy, which hosts health events for families dealing with childhood chronic illness and neuro-inflammation. The next event is April 1, 2023. We’d love to have you!
We’ve had multiple news stories about our farm, and we’ve been featured in Southern Living and Garden and Gun. We’d be honored to be a small part of what you’re doing to bring awareness to healthy foods and alternative wellness!
LINEN BED SHEETS
Last year someone wrote in Wise Traditions t hat fl ax l inen b ed s heets blocked radio frequency (RF). So, when my cotton sheets wore out recently, I bought an organic flax linen set from the same source that was recommended. Using a Gigahertz Solutions HF35C microwave analyzer and flip phone that was two and one-half feet away, I tested the sheets seven times, just like the person who recommended the sheets did. The sheets do not block RF. They did not even attenuate RF.
I can only assume that the person who promoted the sheets as blocking RF used a low-quality measuring device. Gigahertz Solutions makes professional quality meters—which aren’t cheap. As an instructive example, search YouTube for my name plus Video Exposé. There you will see a video I did comparing Gigahertz Solutions meters with a cheaper brand. The difference is extraordinary.
The cheap meter in my video is the same brand and model as the one used in the Arizona Department of Health Services’ “smart” meter study. One of my colleagues in the “smart” meter battle met with the bureaucrat in charge beforehand and told her ADHS needed to get Gigahertz Solutions to ensure accuracy. She didn’t listen, and measuring was instead subbed out to the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency, another bureaucracy which, among other things, measures industrial microwave exposures for safety (an example would be to ensure safety at a factory that uses microwaves to fuse rubber soles to shoes). The cheap, basically useless meter in the video is the meter ARRA uses day to day. So, instead of keeping Arizonans safe, they are putting lives at risk by using a cheap meter.
Unfortunately, my video exposé had no effect on any of the bureaucrats or any of the Arizona Corporation Commission commissioners who regulate “smart” meters. But the point here is, if accuracy in measuring microwaves is desired, don’t cheap out.
My friends and I have been discussing why American women are considered “geriatric” when they are expecting a baby at over thirty-five years of age. A WAPF-minded friend of mine was pregnant with her second at age thirty-nine, and it bothered her as she felt treated as though she were old, and they scared her with all kinds of possible outcomes if she didn’t do certain tests. Her baby is a beautiful, healthy Wise Traditions baby.
In Europe you are considered older and they test you more when you are over forty. Yet, we have friends who are in their forties and having babies that are born just fine. We have also joined a co-op where I see many women in their late thirties and early forties (maybe even older) having babies, too.
Is it our modern society that delays women becoming moms because of college and careers? Then she quickly has one baby, maybe two, because the woman is getting old and “needs” to go back to work? Or is it natural to have a baby as long as the mom is healthy, nourished, eating well—no matter the age? My friend told me that she saw or read about these Mexican women having babies still in their fifties. Did we lose the tradition of having babies even at an older age?
We are curious as some women are waking up now from their unnecessary careers and want to have babies but are scared of what the mainstream doctors might tell them.
When a mother is not well-nourished or has had multiple babies too close together, it is true that older pregnancies are riskier—for example, more Down’s syndrome children are born to older mothers—even Weston Price talked about this. But for moms following a Wise Traditions diet and spacing out their children, there should be no risk of having a baby at an older age.
There are three macronutrients: fats, carbs and proteins. When assessing any diet, a red flag is where one of the three is demonized. Just because the establishment demonizes fats doesn’t mean that blanket demonization of carbs is OK.
I would argue that the lowfat as well as no-carb diets are better described as eating disorders. We have now popular dieticians putting people on low- to no-carb diets after finding that it helps those on processed foods to treat diabetes and obesity, and then claiming that carb cravings that result are “food addiction.” You may as well claim that you have oxygen addiction.

SENOMYX IS EVERYWHERE
PepsiCo, which owns Naked, settled a nine-million-dollar lawsuit over their claim that Naked drinks were all natural. They actually were found to have a bunch of nasty chemicals in them including formaldehyde (a neurotoxin, used to embalm dead bodies), fibersol-2 (a soluble GMO corn fiber that acts as a low-calorie bulking agent) and artificial ingredients like calcium pantothenate, which is synthetically produced from
. . . yep, formaldehyde!
Get this: they never recalled the drinks off the shelves. They never reformulated. Wanna know what they did in compliance with the lawsuit? They removed the word “natural” from the label. It’s still the same toxic concoction as before.
So many food brands today contain Senomyx. This product was developed as a flavor enhancer. Like MSG, it is designed to get us addicted to certain “foods,” which will siphon off lots of our money for their companies and
otherwise further their agendas. It comes from cells of aborted babies. I found that Perrier flavored water contains it and even some of the foods in the WAPF 2023 Shopping Guide. “Natural Flavors” is where strange stuff gets hidden. Baby tissue is “natural.” So is snake venom.
All the major food companies are owned by mega-corporations. It seems that they scout for small companies that have become trusted consumer favorites. Then they buy out the smaller companies and make unpublicized changes. A promising start-up like Bragg apple cider vinegar was recently sold to a mega-corporation, and it may be one or more of their products is now adulterated.
What to do? Build your meals from single ingredients rather than anything processed. And always evaluate the products, even those endorsed in the Shopping Guide.

SURVIVING A HOSPITAL VISIT
I want to thank everyone involved with your organization for putting out the most valuable, timely information during this time of weaponized medicine. I’m sending a special message of gratitude to Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Cowan. In particular it was Dr. Kaufman’s instructions on how to handle ourselves if we needed to go to the hospital, which he shared during his recent conference presentation, that helped me navigate the situation I found myself in.
I landed in my local hospital ER this past Saturday night with an excruciatingly painful abdominal hernia that needed repair. Though I have been managing this hernia for over ten years by being careful, recently things have been very fast-paced in my family life, and I neglected it.
Also, a hospital or medical setting was the last place I wanted to end up in. In recent weeks, I had been doing a lot of heavy lifting and just generally overexerted and stressed myself and my body.
I am home recovering. However, I want to let you and Dr. Kaufman know that I followed his instructions to a tee. I declined the PCR test and questioned everything they wanted to put in my body and every procedure. They told me in the ER that I would not be admitted because I was refusing the PCR test. I held my ground. They told me when admitted that I would not be able to go into the operating room if I didn’t have the test. The surgeon said that I was the first in three years to refuse the PCR and that they did not know what to do with me. I kept telling them that I do not give informed consent to the PCR test and nothing more. I let them figure it out and did not acquiesce.
So by the end of Sunday, the doctor said their management had figured it out and they would rush me into the operating room without any special protocols (whatever that meant). They took me into surgery and when I opened my eyes the doctor said I could leave. They did not let me recover overnight but kicked me out like some sort of nuisance.
As my friend from the New Jersey medical freedom community said, I hit the “Matrix of Ignorance” when I arrived in the hospital. I was questioning everything they were doing, every drug, every blood test. I refused all narcotic pain medications. I questioned the need for the IV and what was going into the IV. I allowed IV Tylenol and then a nausea medication after finding out what category of medications they were. I refused repeat blood work the next day. The doctor said my white blood cell count was high. I said after stress and intense pain from the injury, of course it would be high. And he agreed. They said I was being “difficult,” so they needed me out ASAP.
I am glad to be in my home, out of the matrix and recovering. Thank you for all you do and the amazing WAPF community of informed individuals.

Recently I was traveling home from the beach and stopped in my favorite health food store. I grabbed what I thought was a lemon-flavored sparkling water from a refrigerator case, only to discover after I got on the road that it was laced with CBD. Because I had a three-hour drive home and had to cross over the Bay Bridge, I was very alarmed. After unwittingly drinking half the can, I was concerned about impaired driving due to drug effects that the CBD could have. Only because I was bored at a stoplight and read the can more carefully, did the contents jump out at me.
I stopped at a gas station and forced myself to throw up all the contents of my stomach. CBD can convert to THC in the stomach, and CBD is also known to have psychoactive effects. Industry players have complained at an FDA hearing that often CBD-laced products also have THC in them.
Most consumers do not know about the dangers of ingesting cannabis. Common driving impairments of cannabis are tunnel vision, confused time-and-distance judgment, panic and blackouts. Please do your research. Please be careful what you buy nowadays. It could cost you your life.
I did some digging and found that the product launched in November 2020. There are several flavors of these “Beckett’s non-alcoholic ready-to-drink cocktails.” I saw a special display of these beverages at the Reston, Virginia Total Wine store. The label mentions nothing about this being a cannabis-infused drink. The word “terpenes” and “botanically infused” are the only clues. I worked for Parents Opposed to Pot for nearly ten years, and this is the second time I have run into deceptively marketed cannabis at a retail store. This product is being sold at Costco, Walmart and Harris Teeter as well.
A press release on the product leads me to believe the company knows this is a drug and would produce some kind of intoxicating effect, yet I almost purchased it thinking it was a soda of some sort.
This product should not be on the market. What about the unsuspecting mom who serves this to her child, or the former pot addict who relapses after mistaking this for a soda? Or, the person on parole who fails a drug test?
The press release doesn’t even mention cannabis, CBD or THC. The sparkling water can has the lemon artwork and no marijuana leaf pictured at all. Plus, the yellow type on white blends in and almost recedes into the background. I literally had to study the can to find it. It was a quick grab-and-go, and what a shock to drink this drug without knowing it!
Please protect consumers from this predatory industry. It seems they are out to addict people without their knowledge.
FAKE AND REAL
We vote in fake elections. We consume fake news from fake media. We send our kids to fake schools where they get a fake education. We eat fake food and follow fake diets. We have fake pandemics based on fake science, follow fake protection measures from fake health experts who tell us to wear a fake protection device, take a fake test to see whether we are sick, and inject ourselves with fake vaccines to protect ourselves from a fake virus.
And to top this all off, we have doctors who will gladly make us into a fake man or a fake woman.
I think that sums up our current situation. We need the Weston A. Price Foundation more than ever. Nothing but what is real comes from your organization. I appreciate all you do, and it keeps my feet firmly placed on the earth and in reality. Thank you very much!
My article “Stepping out of the Box: Switching to Nutrient-dense Foods Saves Money” was published in Wise Traditions (Winter 2022). I want to update readers on the current costs of nutrient-dense foods. I recently looked back over the meal plan and compared costs since the totals were calculated seven months ago, in July 2022.
I expected all of the prices to increase over the last seven months, but I was shocked to find out that several real food grocery items had held their price or decreased in price. The food items that went down in price over the last seven months were olive oil, onions, cheddar cheese, organic potatoes, celery, raw apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and oatmeal. Brown rice and garlic were the only food items that remained the same price after seven months.
The food category with the biggest increase in price was the organic food category, but the processed food category was a close second. While those of us who cook from scratch have seen price increases in our whole foods, those foods are the same quantity and are not affected by shrink-flation. The processed foods have not only gone up in price but have shrunk in size, which forces families to buy more product, raising the total cost of meals. Below is a chart comparing the prices in July 2022 to the prices in February 2023.
The results were still the same seven months later with the total for 100% processed food meals being higher than purchasing 50% organic ingredients and cooking those same meals from scratch. I hope this letter encourages everyone to keep cooking from scratch and realize not everything is rising with inflation. Whole foods still win!

In recent weeks there have been many hundreds of cases of dogs around Michigan reported to have a mystery “virus” that is claimed to have killed hundreds of dogs, with thousands more affected. This first prompted several county animal control departments to issue warnings. The spokespersons along with a couple of area vets were claiming they were “unvaccinated dogs” but many owners stated theirs were actually vaccinated. While they state most were younger, many claim their dogs up to age five are being hit. We have long heard that smaller and younger people (and those with weaker immune systems) can be more susceptible to wireless. Why would this not be true for animals as well? Having followed all related news and investigating what I could first-hand, I will share what I found.
After much research and taking measurements of the RF radiation in the areas in question (both are saturated with sky-high levels in downtown residential areas). I found that the two main counties, where the cities Clare and Gaylord are located, now have C-band 5G, which was added in recent months. C Band was what made the news in early 2022 as many airlines were concerned about it affecting their systems. I have strongly suspected that there may soon be a new proclaimed “virus” in the north part of Michigan, especially areas near I-75 and 127, the main state highways. My prediction was that it would likely affect the animals first—we have already heard of many birds having new types of flu and such. Now there are young dogs being affected with a similar version of the “dog flu.”
Also, my dog was sick with those symptoms months ago, after I had stayed one night in a hotel while traveling down south in a metro area much larger than the one we live near. The morning that we departed my dog vomited and had bloody stools, which continued for three days. I took her to two different vets on emergency visits but neither could say what was wrong with my otherwise healthy, four-year-old Sheltie. Once back home I sought out a more holistic vet for further testing but there was no definitive finding. She stated that my dog is likely sensitive to the new frequency band. I’m told that Shelties are supposed to be one of the more sensitive breeds.
Many TV networks and newspapers have now covered the dog problem, first locally in Michigan and in recent days nationally. The reports give us a conflicting narrative, which has switched back to blaming some strain of parvovirus—and all dogs must be vaxxed for safety. I have also followed comments from hundreds of people who posted on various Facebook pages for state departments and news media how in recent months their dogs were sick with the same symptoms. Many noted that their dogs were “fully vaxxed” and still had all the symptoms, which the media are not reporting accurately. Also, many stated their dogs recovered (as did mine), but this was not noted in the media. I suspect there are many thousands more who had the same scenarios. While the masses parrot the narrative from the media saying, “get your dogs vaxxed,” a handful on each forum seem to question whether the problem is environmental. Admittedly, most jump to food or water or even chemtrails before they mention invisible RF waves.
The various advocates and researchers with whom I have discussed this in recent days do agree there may be a link. Author of The Invisible Rainbow, Arthur Firstenberg, is one who is looking into it and will likely offer his thoughts in an upcoming newsletter. I believe it to be too much of a coincidence and even more suspect with the media releasing such conflicting statements. It truly does seem like a re-hash of the Covid fiasco, and I suspect the push for pets to be fully vaxxed is just getting started. It is hard for me not to speak out knowing what I know firsthand. My background is detailed on my site below. I was also previously the Michigan Outreach Director for We Are The Evidence, started by RFK Jr’s lead counsel for the Children’s Health Defense “5G Harms” division. I now offer services to investigate health effects for those affectd by ER.

TONGUE TIE REVISITED
Just wanted to share our experience with tongue-tie after reading Merinda Teller’s article on the subject (Fall 2022). The advice of our holistic pediatrician after the birth of our daughter was to wait on a frenotomy for her tongue-tie and observe whether initially there were any issues breastfeeding, and later, speaking. Neither was a problem, so we opted to avoid a tongue release.
However, as our daughter grew, her beautiful, wide palette narrowed. After consulting with a myofunctional therapist, it became clear that the frenulum was not allowing her tongue to raise naturally and apply any pressure to maintain palatal structure. We decided it was best to seek a tongue release, but because she was older, the procedure had to be done under general anesthesia.
In hindsight, a tongue release shortly after birth would have been the path of least resistance to maintain the epigenetic benefit of following a WAPF diet. We have had to resort to orthodontic palatal expansion to undo the years when her tongue did not exert its influence on the architecture of the oral cavity. If parents wish to avoid a tongue release, I would advise them first to document the extent of the tongue-tie (our daughter’s was the most pronounced type) and consult with a myofunctional therapist to ensure that palatal development is unimpeded.

This may seem like a strange request but I have to ask. I am recently pregnant and for personal reasons will likely put my child up for adoption. I am very healthy and am taking great care of myself and this pregnancy. I want to identify a family whose values align with my own (WAPF way of eating, no vaccination, etc.)
If you have suggestions about agencies or otherwise, please send them to WAPF and they will forward them to me. firstname.lastname@example.org.
