Yes, despite all the drama that goes on these days with WAPF, I am grateful the foundation exists.
Promoting knowledge of real food and holistic healing is something this world needs very badly. SAD diets are not sustaining our society and is also quickly increasing the rates of disease. So many people don’t realize that pretty much any ailment they have can be fixed through diet. This includes things like asthma, eczema, ADHD, fibromyalgia, arthritis, PCOS…the list is endless.
I came upon the Weston A. Price Foundation by a glorious accident. My young son, less than 2 at the time, had tooth decay that I was just watching get worse. Our doctor advised that it was more than likely due to his frequent nebulizer use since his teeth were perfect when they came in. She advised me of what I could do (wipe his mouth out with water after his breathing treatments), but it didn’t do much to deter the decay. I wasn’t about to watch his teeth rot right out of his mouth, so I consulted Dr. Google and found his saving grace. I actually tried Dr. Ellie’s tooth care regimen at first, but the results we had were less than stellar, and it actually made his digestive issues worse.
I read through the articles regarding healing teeth, but what I also found was information on healing allergies, asthma, autism, adrenals, etc. etc. etc. When I read about GAPS, I knew it was a perfect fit for my son. I decided on a start date and both of us started the diet cold turkey, leaving the world of grains and sugar behind. What followed was nothing short of amazing. We are still on our journey to optimal health, but had we not found WAPF and GAPS, we would not have come this far.
