What is the Western A Price Foundation?

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Hi All

As many of you know I have been a follower of the work of Western A Price for a number of years now. I have recently established a chapter of the Western A.Price Foundation (WAPF) in Manchester, England. This chapter aims to promote his ideas and teachings in the local area. So I thought a bit of background on the WAPF would not go a miss.

The WAPF is a nonprofit, charity that was founded in 1999. It’s aim is to promote the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples and thier diets and how this related to thier health. Dr. Price’s research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health for many generations when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.

The Western A.Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring these 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 nutritional information, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and plain English labeling, and nurturing therapies.

Current goals include the establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy in baby foods.

The Foundation seeks to establish a laboratory to test nutrient content of foods, particularly butter produced under various conditions; to conduct research into the “X Factor,” discovered by Dr. Price; and to determine the effects of traditional preparation methods on nutrient content and availability in whole foods.

The Foundation is headed up by the great Sally Fellon (Nourishing Traditions Fame), and has a large number of great people involved. Fingers crossed you will be hearing more from them in our interview series in the coming weeks.

For more info look at the site, or join up as a member and help support this great organisation.

Alternatively for more information on the work of The Western A.Price Foundation in Manchester give us a call on 0161 610 0354.

Have a happy, healthy day!

Natural Food Finder Review

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

We all have those rare moments when we come across a site that really changes your life, it does not happen oftern but last week I had that pleaseure.  The site I am talking about is Natural Food Finder, this is a UK based listings site that helps shoppers look for the very best orgainc products out there on the market.

The man behind this site is no stranger to me, he is called Ben Pratt and has a long history working to improve the levels of nutrition with in the UK.  HE has had a long association with and is a Chaper Leader for the Western A.Price Foundation.  To find out more look out for an interview with Ben in a couple of weeks.

Lets get down to the site itself, it is split into four main sections.  Each of which we have detailed below:-

Food Finder- This is a great service that lists various brands of organic and wholefood produce.  This can be a great shopping tool, each category has products split into Avoid, AVerage, Good and Best, to allow the user to make informed choices about the nutritional value of what they are buying.  I have found that this site works well on any web enabled mobile phone, making it a great shopping companion.

The Food Finder is much more that just a list, it is packe full of information on all the different types of food that it covers.  The only way that we are going to make better nutritional choices in our lives is through education, the more we know about what we eat and how it acts within our bodies the better choices we can make.  This site provides just the right amount of knowedge, nt too deep to overface the average consumer, but detailed enough so you understand the facts.

Blog – The site also has a very well read blog, the blog covers all areas of food, nutrition and wellbeing.

Shop –The Natural Food FInder shop is the place to buy som eof the best suppliments in the UK.  IF you would like suppliments that work to improve you health and happiness then this is the place to start your search.

Help Centre – The help centre is an awsome idea, it is a place where site visitors can get loads of information on health, nutrition and wellbeing.  This section has articles, an avoid list, and a very useful foroum.  If you have a question this is the place to head first!

Overall the site is very well organised, packed full of great information, and most importantly updated on a regular information.  This site has definately made it into my most used bookmarks list!

If you are into your health, wellbeing and overall happiness then this is a site to look at, and not onlythat bookmark and use!

Well done Ben and the team at Natural Food Finder!

Natural Food Finder Conference at Sheepdove Organic Farm

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Hi All,

Organic-NFF1

There is an awesome conference going on that is aimed at all those who have an interest in nutrition and health. Lets face it that should be all of us! We really need to make an effort to support these types of events as they are few and far between here in the UK, although we are slowly catching up! This event and some of the information carried in it can truly be life changing.

The conference is the brain child of Ben Pratt, of Natural Food Finder (look out for the up coming site review and an interview with the great man himself), it aims to bring to light some of the truths behind diet, nutrition and wellbeing.

The conference is called Natural Food and Nutrition for Modern Diseases and will be held on the 24th September 2010, so not long left now get yourselves booked on, I am sure a conference of this caliber will sell out fast!

Ben had gathered an awesome range of speakers, these include:-
– Ben Pratt – Author / Founder Natural Food Finder – Topic: OBESITY
– Barry Groves – Author, Topic: FATS – Weightloss
– Sir Julian Rose – Organic pioneer and author, Topic: GMO and Organic Farming
– Dr Natasha Campbell McBride – Presenter, Author. Topic: Heart Disease
– Pete Cohen – GMTV weightloss guru presenter, Topic: Making the change and moving forward.

In line with the content of the day the event will be held at Sheepdrove Organic Farm, Lambourn, Berkshire.

Have a look at Natural Food Finder for more information.
