These cultures were free of chronic disease, dental decay and mental illness. They were attractive, sturdy, healthy people, generation after generation. Dr. Price’s observation of so-called civilized diet, particularly Western diet of refined carbohydrates, high fructose corn syrup, devitalized fats and oils, takes away from our god- given genetic inheritance of vibrant health and physical perfection.

With this acceptance we can nurture ourselves to create harmony and make adjustments to foster change which will lead to balance vitality, and ultimately healings.
