Description:

The foods that baby eats during his first two years will largely determine his health throughout the rest of his life. Nutrient-density is key for giving baby a good start; that means liver and egg yolks, not applesauce and rice cereal. This talk will give practical advice and also provide concerns about exclusive breastfeeding and baby-led weaning.

Sally Fallon Morell is founding president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and founder of A Campaign for Real Milk. Mrs. Fallon Morell lectures extensively around the world on issues of health and nutrition. She is a prolific writer of numerous articles and books and serves as editor of Wise Traditions, the quarterly journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation. In 1996, Mrs. Fallon Morell published the best-selling Nourishing Traditions (with Mary G. Enig, PhD), the cookbook that launched her career in alternative health.

2018 Steering Committee Meeting – In Review

We had our 2018 Steering Committee Meeting in January, and I am happy to say that we got another couple of great people who volunteered to help the Eugene Chapter, WAPF continue to function this year!

We still have a few tasks that were either not claimed or are still under-supported.  So if you would like to help out, please give us some idea where you would like to plug-in.

A few specific tasks that are still under-supported are:

  • Backup Newsletter Editor (who can make sure things go out in a timely manner when I am not able to)
  • Lookup DVD info for Newsletter
  • Host a food workshop at your home
  • Carry materials to and from events
  • Help with set up and clean up at events
  • Make sure we have a meat dish at each potluck
  • Post fliers around town to promote our events

If you would like more information about any of these, just let me know.  I would be happy to meet with any potential volunteers to discuss what you have to offer and how we can use your skills and energy.

See Get Involved! for more examples.

Oh yeah, and let us know what you would like to see the Eugene Chapter do this year.  What topics would you like to see demonstrated? What farms would you like to meet?  What else do you want from this group?  We want to know.

Thanks,

– Lisa

February 23: DVD – Nourish Your Neurons

Nourish Your Neurons: Preventing Alzheimer’s with Good Nutrition

by Amy Berger

I attended this presentation live at the Wise Traditions Conference last year, and really enjoyed it. I thought Amy Berger did an excellent job of explaining Alzheimer’s disease and her recommended treatment.  I recommend this presentation for anyone who wants to understand the brain. – Lisa

Please come around 6:15

Description:

Few illnesses are as frightening and feared as Alzheimer’s disease. It seems to strike indiscriminately and the best conventional medicine has to offer are medications that are largely ineffective at slowing or stopping disease progression. However, the scientific literature is replete with research referring to Alzheimer’s disease as “type 3 diabetes” or “diabetes of the brain,” owing to the fundamental role of impaired glucose metabolism and insulin signaling in the brain. This talk will explore the concept of Alzheimer’s as a “metabolic condition, with a metabolic solution” one based on providing struggling neurons with a powerful alternative fuel source: ketones. This can be accomplished by following a low-carbohydrate, nutrient-dense diet containing the traditional nourishing fats and good quality proteins and vegetables. Berger will cover genetic factors related to risk for Alzheimer’s, the failure of the pharmaceutical paradigm and will provide a blueprint for dietary and lifestyle interventions to improve the lives of those with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones and caregivers.

Amy Berger is a U.S. Air Force veteran, certified nutrition specialist and nutritional therapy practitioner who specializes in using low-carbohydrate nutrition to help people reclaim their vitality through eating delicious foods. She loves showing people that getting and staying well doesn’t require starvation, deprivation or living at the gym. Her motto is, “real people need real food!” She blogs at www.tuitnutrition.com, where she writes about a wide range of health and nutrition-related topics, such as insulin, metabolism, weight loss, thyroid function, and more. She is the author of The Alzheimer’s Antidote: Using a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet to Fight Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Loss, and Cognitive Decline.

Description:

In light of the tremendous rise in birth defects, autism, learning disabilities, autoimmunity and cancer in children living in industrialized nations, especially the U.S., it is imperative that preconception couples take preparation for conception seriously. Mindful conception is just that. It is preparatory, calculating and intentional. Preparatory involves proper gentle detoxification. Calculating considers proper child spacing. Intentional requires optimal nutrition using real food?foods known for their ability to support hormone function and encourage healthy offspring. Join Kim as she shares how to pursue a healthy pregnancy and begin life well for your children.
