Become A Patient!

On today’s show, Dr. Ben interviews Sally Fallon-Morell, founder and president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and author of several different books. Sally shares part of her story of how she came to being so passionate about nutritional truth.  Sally touches on how disastrous the current dietary guidelines are and how we arrived here. She shares the nutrition claims of several different fats – both healthy and not. World War II was a pivotal point in our history. Before, we were the healthiest people group in the world. Afterwards, we are now one of the unhealthiest. There are several factors, including money, that are at play here. Sally and Dr. Ben discuss cholesterol, brain health, gut health, growing kids, autism, ADD, ADHD, anxiety, and depression. They specifically touch on how the fats and good bacteria that we eat create “feel good” chemicals and combat depression naturally. Sally explains who Weston A. Price was and what his work involved. She and Dr. Ben discuss where he travelled, how important organ meats were in the cultures he studied, how he found no vegetarian or vegan people groups, and how the structure of the mouth is dependent upon the nutrient density of the diet. Sally gives an abundance of information on raw milk – it’s history and it’s nutrition. Sally finishes by speaking about grains.
