This past weekend I attended my first conference in the nutrition field. It was quite the experience. I learned a lot and learned that I have a lot more to learn! I would like to share a little bit about the organization that hosted the conference, Weston A. Price Foundation.
Per their website. “The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.”
I have been privileged to study some of their publications through school and have found it very thought provoking. I have incorporated some of the traditions in to our diet already. This is why I decided to go the conference. Oh, and it was in Minneapolis; I didn’t have to travel to another city. They have an annual conference in a different city each year.
The Foundation’s quarterly journal, Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts, is dedicated to exploring the scientific validation of dietary, agricultural and medical traditions throughout the world. It features illuminating and thought-provoking articles on current scientific research; human diets; non-toxic agriculture; and holistic therapies. The journal also serves as a reference for sources of foods that have been conscientiously grown and processed.
The organization has a website which has a huge amount of information available even if you are not a member. Yearly membership is only $40.00 (in the US) which has a few more perks and helps fund the organization. There are chapters all over the world if you want to get involved on a local level.
I encourage you to check out the website, especially if you are searching for information on nutrient-dense foods and nourishing traditional diets.
