If you know anyone in California, or need an excuse to go down there, I highly recommend The Fourfold Path to Healing Conference.  Seven years ago, my friend Katie, and my (then) 5-month-old son and I went to this conference when it was in Vancouver BC.  We had a great time and I am sure you will too.

Below is a note from Sally Fallon Morell about the upcoming Fourfold Healing Conference sponsored by New Trends Publishing.  If you know anyone who would like to attend but cannot for financial reasons, please suggest they call our registrar to arrange for assistance: Paul Frank (304) 724-3006.  We would love to have as many as possible hear these great speakers.

Personally, I have attended and enjoyed this conference greatly.  I could hear all three speakers over and over. I usually take Jaimen’s class and find it very healing and energizing- it is like a retreat.  If you don’t know about him, here is one of his videos that will give you a taste of his work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFEsjGZ5TGg

While centered on the book The Fourfold Path to Healing, the speakers at this conference are constantly promoting WAPF membership and it always turns out to be a beneficial conference for the Foundation.

The Friday evening reception and two days of lectures will be held on the beautiful Queen Mary. Because the number who attend is typically below 300, this is a great opportunity to meet and talk with Tom Cowan, Jaimen McMillan and myself. Many of you have heard me and Tom speak, but if you have not attended Jaimen’s classes you are in for a fascinating, helpful and entertaining experience learning about healing through movement. And, of course, the reception buffet and two meals we serve will be completely WAPF-approved!

Many thanks!

Protecting yourself from Radiaiton

This information comes to us from Thomas Cowan, MD.  Dr. Cowan is one of the founding board members of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a frequent speaker and The Wise Traditions Conferences, and author of The Four Fold Path to Healing.

Between 1932 and 1942, Dr. Francis Pottenger conducted research on how cooked food vs. raw affected cats. In these studies, Pottenger took perfectly healthy cats and kept them healthy on a diet of raw milk, raw meat and cod liver oil.   Then he would alter the diet, for example, substituting pasteurized milk for raw milk, and the health of the cats would progressively deteriorate.

And how many generations did it take to restore the cats to perfect health when they ate the optimal diet?Seven generations – the same timespan that held special significance for Native Americans, who believed that for every important decision, the leaders should imagine the consequences of that decision for those coming seven generations.

Sadly and, right now, tragically, it is clear that our leaders and corporations have not been following this wise dictum.   If they had, we wouldn’t have built nuclear power plants, we wouldn’t have used up much of the stored energy and minerals on our planet, and we wouldn’t have treated our rivers and oceans like sewage dumps.    But we have done those things, and now we are possibly facing yet another grave threat to the health and well being of our planet: the spread of radiation from the destruction of the nuclear-power plant in Japan.

Many people have asked me what, if anything, they should do to prepare for the possibility of increased radiation exposure.   Here are my suggestions, based on my understanding of the research on preventing and treating radiation sickness.  I also want to thank the many people who have written to me to help me sort out the voluminous research on this subject.

First, because there is no clear evidence of current danger that I know of, we should do now only what is safe, inexpensive and otherwise healthy.   This includes our Nourishing Traditions/GAPS diet, with liberal amounts of good fats, broth, lacto-fermented vegetables and greens.   Special foods that have been shown to counteract radiation sickness include naturally fermented miso, beets, kombucha and sea vegetables, such as kombu.   Fermented cod liver oil at the usual dose of ½ teaspoon or 2 capsules is best.   Next, detoxifying baths with a cup of Epsom salts every couple days is an inexpensive aid to boosting magnesium levels, relaxing muscles, and aiding the elimination channels….

by Tom Cowan, MD

Friday, July 23, 2010

Location:
Market of Choice

Upstairs in the Community Room

This is the second part of the DVD we showed in June. This DVD was recorded at the 2009 Wise Traditions Conference.

“An overview of cancer from the perspective of the work of Weston Price. This presentation will include a description of the “true” cause of cancer and explore the shortfalls of conventional diagnosis (including biopsy) and treatment.”Thomas Cowan, MD is a physician in private medical practice in San Francisco, California. He is a frequent lecturer around the country on health and nutrition. His book, The Fourfold Path to Healing, was published in 2004. Dr. Cowan serves on the Board of Directors of The Weston A. Price Foundation. Visit his website at www.fourfoldhealing.com.

Dr. Cowan is a frequent contributor to the Wise Traditions Journal, and if you have never had the opportunity to hear Dr. Cowan speak I highly recommend it. His talks defy easy description, combining medical knowledge and anthroposophy, with an entertaining story-telling style. In this presentation he covers the great questions of what causes cancer, the immune system, the digestive system, the ecological effects of civilization, the future of humanity and much more. Come see for yourself.

Dinner and a Movie:
You are welcome to buy food downstairs in Market of Choice or (shh, don’t tell them I told you this) bring something from home to eat in the room.

RSVP:
We need to have at least 5 people RSVP in order to reserve the space at Market of Choice, and there is a maximum of 25 seats available. So I urge you to RSVP  if you think you will be attending. If your plans change, always feel free to just show up.
