We really are fortunate these days to have some rather unprecedented access to many of the best and brightest minds in nutritional thinking than ever before in human history. Before the Internet went mainstream in the late 1990’s and later spawning daily hubs of invaluable information that combat the conventional wisdom seen in traditional forms of media, your sources for health data came primarily from television, radio, books, magazines and the like. But not anymore! Now we have professional blogs, sophisticated and interactive web sites, YouTube videos and engaging podcasts to help replace the mind-numbed and ever-so-predictable cookie-cutter diet and health stuff we’ve really never had access to before. These are exciting times we live in!
Pandora’s box has now been busted wide open and there’s a whole new world of people, thoughts and ideas being disseminated out there all in an effort to combat the heavily-promoted high-carb, low-fat lie that has kept us mired in chronic disease and obesity for far too long. We truly have a golden opportunity to help re-educate people about what constitutes a “healthy” diet and I’m grateful to be playing a small role in that effort on the blogging and podcasting front. But there are some amazing people involved in organizations like The Weston A. Price Foundation not just in the United States, but around the world spreading the truth about healthy, real food nutrition based on the traditional diets of those who have gone before us. Hearkening back to the days not that long ago before obesity, diabetes and heart disease were all unheard of (it’s hard to believe this is only something that has happened just in the past century of human existence) is a recipe for reversing the negative impact our modern-day diet and lifestyle is having on our general health and well-being.
I didn’t realize there was an active Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter in London, England led by raw milk lover Philip Ridley who cured his lactose intolerance in 2008 by adding this real food to his diet for the first time in his life. It totally rocked his world and made a believer out of him of the importance of consuming real foods in his diet. Although the U.S. version of the Weston A. Price Foundation’s Wise Traditions Conference is coming up next weekend, the UK version of this incredible conference was a smashing success back in March 2011. Best of all, all 14 hours of the event was captured on video and is now available for purchase worldwide on Amazon.com.
So, you wanna know what’s on this 4-disc DVD? Check this out:
You should already be familiar with several of these names from their previous appearances on my podcast (listen to Zoe Harcombe, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Dr. Barry Groves and Dr. Kaayla Daniel). And I’m working on interviewing Dr. Campbell-McBride for my podcast to discuss her unique Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) concept hopefully in early 2012. But this DVD set gives you a TON of fantastic information on important health topics such as gut health, heart disease, obesity, stress, low-carb diets for diabetes, high-fat foods for optimal health, fertility, cancer, foraging for plants, farming, and raw milk. This four-disc set is a fabulous way to spread the message to skeptical friends and family members who would never attend a Wise Traditions conference. Plus, it will strengthen your own knowledge base about what you believe and why you believe it!
To help get this incredible DVD collection into your hands as quickly as possible, Philip Ridley has generously donated THREE of them to give away here on my blog. So let’s have a little bit of fun with it, shall we? Simply leave a comment below telling everyone the lecture you look forward to seeing and hearing the most and why. Also, tell us the health subjects YOU are most interested in learning more about? Since I’m heading out of town on vacation beginning this Sunday, please have your comments posted no later than Friday, November 4, 2011 and I’ll announce the winners on my blog in a post on Saturday.
