I used to think I had a good diet and was in fine health. Unexplained stomach pains led me to try out a gluten-free diet, and I realized how dependent my diet was on wheat. In the process of looking for more information online, I discovered the Weston A. Price Foundation.
The idea that the rapid changes in the way we feed ourselves since the Industrial Revolution are affecting our health in unforeseen ways made perfect sense to me. Since then, the way I nourish my family has been in a constant state of experimentation and improvement.
I came to realize that my health was actually suffering, but I had simply stopped paying attention to it. I now feel stronger, happier, more in touch with myself, and more alive than at any other point in my adult life. I don’t suffer the embarrassment of frequent acne, diarrhea, and incontinence. I don’t crash at 8PM. I am more patient with my family, more content, and I accomplish more.
I now feel like I have tools that really work to support my family’s health and well-being. Best of all, these tools are sustainable: for my health, for my finances, and for the health of my planet. I love the skills and the knowledge that I’ve acquired: I’m no longer dependent on food and medical industries that I can’t trust. I’m in control of my health.
