This is a full day seminar on the role of fat-soluble vitamins (e.g., A, D, and K) in human health. The presentation covers what modern science reveals about why the food practices of many non-industrialized cultures have supported vibrant health. Directly relevant to those interested in nutrition for healing, participants will learn to analyze claims about fats and disease, to identify superior sources of fat-soluble vitamins, and to assess and amend soils for improved nutrition.
Session I: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science
Learn the approach Weston A. Price used in the early 20th century to study the causes of physical degeneration seen in modern society and the vibrant health of many non-industrialized cultures. Explore traditions of food selection and soil health found within the accumulated wisdom of many of these resiliently healthy groups, and the key role of fat-soluble vitamins. Understand the broad-based support these vitamins offer the body, the wide range of diseases they protect against, and the wide range of functions they sustain.
