Homemade Butter vs. Store Bought: Return of Nourishing Traditions

nourishing traditions

There is something about the rich, melty, drippy, golden goodness of butter that seems so divine, it should be forbidden- or so goes the modern dietary creed. With a nutritional approach that teaches deprivation as the key to health and beauty, butter has become a deeply feared food and a symbol of frowned-upon indulgence in the Standard American Diet. Yet, what if this incredibly smooth and rich fat was precisely what our craving bodies need for health, for happiness, for life? Combining the most innovative modern medical research and the intuitive wisdom of tradition cultures, it turns out to be true: butter is beautiful! Learn how to make your own raw butter at home and dare to relish in the delightfully satisfying nourishment this simple food has to offer.

DIY Toothsoap Recipe Using Cold Pressed Coconut Oil

94% of Americans claim that they dutifully lather up their pearly whites nightly. We are a nation captivated by mega-watt smiles, collectively spending over $2 billion a year on dental products including toothpaste, mouthwash and dental floss. Yet, despite these efforts towards dental hygiene, reports indicate that 75% of the population suffers from some form of periodontal gum disease. Tooth decay remains the most common chronic disease among children, affecting 59% of those aged 5-17 years. Something just doesn't add up...

Bare Bones: Calcium and Natural Sources of Vitamin A, D & K2


When it comes to calcium more does not mean better. This may come as a shock to the millions of Americans who dubiously gobble down calcium supplements and tactfully wipe off multiple milk-mustaches daily. We are a culture that simply loves calcium- it is our glamorous “superstar” mineral with a name that rolls of the tongue. It has slipped its way into nearly everything from orange juice to glittering sugar-coated chocolate chews. Yet, contrary to the treasured conventional wisdom that calcium can single-handedly build strong bones, recent studies have shown that increasing calcium intake through supplementation has no significant effect on reducing the rate of fractures nor preventing the bone thinning disease osteoporosis. In fact, recent research released in a number of prestigious medical journals is revealing that improper supplementation with calcium is actually correlated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis and heart disease.

The Mystery of X-Factor Butter Oil and Vitamin K2: Solved

Vitamin K2

“People of the past obtained a substance that modern generations do not have” -Weston A. Price

Traveling the world in search of the secrets of optimal health and immunity, Dr. Weston A Price noted a radiant wellness and unmistakable brilliance in the indigenous peoples of cultures unexposed to a modern diet. After a decade of carrying out the most compelling cross-cultural research around the globe, Price conducted groundbreaking research in his laboratory where he was able to pinpoint particular nutrients responsible for this remarkable robust health. It was through this detailed analysis that he isolated a critical unnamed fat-soluble vitamin he called the X-Factor or Activator X. For years people have searched for this mysterious super nutrient, desirous of its health-giving potential. Well, it turns out the X-factor now has a name: it’s vitamin K2.

Keys to Radiant Wellness: Traditional Nutrient Dense Foods

Never before has there been more dietary philosophies and divergent health perspectives clamoring for our attention. From vegetarianism to veganism; from high-carb and low-fat philosophies to the Atkins diet; from the Zone diet to the South Beach diet, everyone seems to have found “the truth” about nutrition. There is, however, one approach that offers a real light in the darkness. “Native nutrition” (our indigenous food wisdom), reintroduced to the West by the breakthrough research of Dr. Weston Price, is an antidote for the confusion! The key is questioning most of the modern “experts” and learning from the example of our healthy ancestors.

Every now and then, a nutrition book is written that is so well researched, grounded in science and makes so much common sense that we are simply compelled to write about it and share it with as many like-minded people. Perfect Health Diet by Paul Jaminet, Ph.D. and Shiu-Ching Jaminet, Ph.D. is such a book.
