- The Continuation of Evolving Nutrition Awareness 5 mon
Greetings Once Again!
As mentioned before in this blog - digestion is an essential part of all that can make for good nutrition. The knowledge of this truth is virtually universal as all cultures have the equivalent of saying ”Good Digestion” before sharing a meal. That’s because you can’t assimilate what you can’t digest. All the above is on the health side of good digestion. On the other side - what you don’t digest may not only be a burden on your body, it might also become a source of inflammation which can be the physical ground for ”disease”. Therefor - I encourage you to conside ... read more

- Pottenger's Cats 12 mon
Another recommendation next to Weston A. Price’s ”Nutrition and Physical Degeneration is this book by Francis Pottenger.
”... One of the most valuable things I gleaned from Nutrition and Physical Degeneration occurred because of data that came from another small book called Pottenger’s Cats, also published by the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation. By combining the two books into one understanding I have obtained an ability to see how the human body adapts to inadequate nutrition, especially inadequate mineral nutrition. I suppose that’s why the PPNF keeps Pottenger’s Cats in print an ... read more

- Nutrition Is Good Only If It Is Digestible! 16 mon
”It doesn’t matter what we eat; it only matters what we digest.”:
Not so long after the idea was presented to me that ”a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has all the nutrition that we need” I got introduced to the work of Adelle Davis through a member (or two) in my local Church. The idea of ”you are what you eat” came along at that same time and regardless of the credibility issues of Adelle Davis (1), what I had was a sincere lust for the tr ... read more

- Good Nutrition Prevents and Cures Tooth Decay 16 mon
Good nutrition comes from nutrient-dense real whole foods, properly grown and that are properly prepared vs. the fractionated, processed, modern foods of commerce. The evidence for this predominately comes from the findings of Weston A. Price and from many others who understand the significance of Price’s findings. Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay, is one of those who knows and highly values what Price gave to the world. Here is one example of this:

What are the ”facts of the origin and development of” the words: nutrition and nourish?
”nourish (v.) ...

- Avoid Corporate-Controlled Nutrition Including Organic Food! 17 mon
”... I decided to study nutrition in college ... and earned a degree in nutrition from an Ivy League University in the late 1980s. ... Here are the major take-home messages that really left an impression on me: 1) polar bear liver will kill you because of its high vitamin A content; 2) fat-soluble vitamins are dangerous; 3) sugar consumption has no ill effects, except for dental caries; and 4) dietary fat is the principal cause of cancer, heart disease, and just about every thing else. The major message: avoid fat at all costs and eat more carbs. Remember too: avoid vitamin pills and polar ... read more

- The Effects of Inferior Nutrition Are Virtually Endless! 19 mon
Really Good Nutrition supports great health, total well-being including good mental-emotional disposition and natural beauty! Conversely the effects of inferior nutrition are virtually endless! It seems that for a lot of people their complaints along these lines are endless! However, I believe that real relief can be had for many if not most of the complaints. I also believe that complete relief may often require the resolution of an emotional conflict. (See German New Medicine at learninggnm.com)
One area that can be specifically addressed is food allergies. It is now very common to ... read more

- A Larger Context For Good Nutrition 19 mon
There is a context wherein really good nutrition exists that is larger than just the science of nutrition. That larger context includes virtually everything else beyond what the public school system has taught us about ”nutrition”.
For instance - nutrient-density (first introduced at this blog site in my most recent blog post) is largely based on how food is grown and / or raised. We can possibly call that the ”agricultural factor”. However, not every agricultural site provides nutrient-dense foods. All of the agricultural practices that are used in the food production process largely d ... read more

- Nutrient-Dense Foods - A Foundation of Good Nutrition 19 mon
”Nutrient density” is the first criteria (IMO) regarding a dietary foundation for good nutrition.
It also identifies the over all criteria of what Dr. Weston A. Price discovered in the various diets among all the groups of people he had visited.
Update July 4th, 2012 -
”... the only way for humans, with their limited ability to take in food, to properly nourish themselves is to eat mostly nutrient-dense foods; and the emerging science of biochemistry confirmed the dietary habits of primitive peoples by revealing just which foods best me ... read more

- What Is Good Nutrition? 20 mon
Since ”Chef Jem by chef jem” was created to support ”... The Recovery of Our Food Sovereignty in America” I’ve just realized the need for (yet) another blog and this time focused more on the subject matter of nutrition. It is my sincere hope that I can give whatever general information, practical knowledge and personal wisdom that I can regarding nutrition and especially in support of the evolutionary process that I am observing in terms of nutritional awareness.
My own awareness of nutrition and it’s importance in my life became more prominent in my consciousness when ... read more
