“Properly prepared, nutrient-rich, whole foods.” What do these six words mean to you? To us, these are critical words. For over three decades, my wife and I have attempted to live these six words and teach these six words. For in them lies profound wisdom and healing for the nations. A full respect and implementation of these six words can beat breast cancer, expose the GMO lie, and educate the world on food values like fair trade, organic, and sustainable agriculture.
At Common Sense Nutritional Therapy, we have six other words as well, and they are synonymous with the above six: “Health is fragile, handle with food.”
My parents were subject to a new phenomenon in their 20s when I was born in 1952. This new invention was sensational, exciting, and trusted as a source for the latest, greatest news on everything. It was called the television. There, my parents learned that formula was better than breast milk, margarine was better than butter, and a certain cigarette brand was doctor recommended. There, white refined sugar was put forth as a health food, and convenience foods were put forth as better tasting, easier to prepare, and healthier than Mom’s cooking.
Although these things are known to be false now, there is a whole new set of current day “truths” that I believe we will one day see to be just as ludicrous.
So, where can we find the truth? Where can we go for untainted information?
As practitioners who use whole foods and whole food concentrates to move people back to optimal health, we go to the old masters’ works left behind for us to use. The works of people like Dr. Francis Pottenger, Dr. Melvin Page, Dr. Royal Lee, Dr. Weston A. Price, and the like. Definitely look these people up! My wife and I have taught the class “Health is Fragile - Handle with Food” for over twenty years now. You might ask: “How can this address breast cancer, GMOs, and issues like organic, fair trade, and sustainable agriculture?” It’s a legitimate question.
We all vote with our dollars. Every time we buy, we vote. The food providers are watching how we vote. Furthermore, they are polling “we the people” as to why we vote the way we do. If you want to make real change, choose to buy foods that truly support your health. It promotes true sustainable health for you and those you teach. We believe that it is extremely important for you to teach others what you learn, as these types of true solutions are far too absent in current teaching environments. In our class, “Health Is Fragile - Handle With Food,” we teach a broad spectrum of Old World nutritional fundamentals and how to implement them in a modern day glut of “nutritional information,” which is questionable, at best, and downright fraudulent, at worst.
The bottom line is this: we need to return to a nutrient-rich, properly prepared whole food diet that implements age-old, tried and true information that has sustained disease-free groups of people for thousands and thousands of years. It can be done!
