Weston Price showed us that the fundamental cause of disease is inadequate nutrition. In virtually every indigenous culture he visited and studied, from tropical regions to the extreme north, people who were eating entirely according to the traditional wisdom of their ancestors were immune to chronic diseases. Diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, tuberculosis and gastrointestinal problems requiring surgical intervention did not occur until the people began eating "the white man's foods" - sugar, flour, vegetable oils, canned goods and other refined foods. As I began my work as a physician, I used the principles I learned from Dr. Price with my patients. And yet, despite having some understanding of the nutritional principles Dr. Price discovered and elucidated, there is often great difficulty in finding and utilizing a diet that will prevent or reverse chronic diseases.
