Optimal Health Through Real Food & Nutritional Therapy
Dr. Weston A. Price (1870-1948), a Cleveland dentist, has been called the “Isaac Newton of Nutrition.”

In his search for the causes of dental decay and physical degeneration that he observed in his dental practice, he turned from test tubes and microscopes to unstudied evidence among human beings.

Dr. Price sought the factors responsible for fine teeth among the people who had them: isolated non-industrialized people.

The world became his laboratory.

As he traveled, his findings led him to the belief that crowded, crooked teeth and unattractive appearance were merely a sign of physical degeneration, resulting from what he had suspected: nutritional deficiencies.

Price traveled the world over in order to study isolated human groups, including sequestered villages in Switzerland, Gaelic communities in the Outer Hebrides, Eskimos and Indians of North America, Melanesian and Polynesian South Sea Islanders, African tribes, Australian Aborigines, New Zealand Maori and the Indians of South America.

Wherever he went, Dr. Price found that beautiful straight teeth, freedom from decay, stalwart bodies, resistance to disease and fine characters were typical of primitives on their traditional diets, rich in essential food factors.

Kim Schuette, CN, of the Weston A. Price Foundation, joins Dr. Susanne to share more about the Foundation, as well as how it and its members are carrying on the research and practice of Dr. Price.
