Evolving Nutritional Awareness & Evolution of Consciousness 6 y
The integral connections between gut-brain-head centers and evolving consciousness.
October 1, 2023 - ”Building not only of our physical body, but of our subtle bodies as well” -
”Eating is a process by which we introduce materials into our organism that will contribute to the building not only of our physical body, but of our subtle bodies as well. So, it is particularly important to carry out this act – which we repeat every day, several times a day – in a state of peace and harmony. This is why I always stress the importance of meditating for a few minutes before meals. I know that this is not a very widespread habit, and that most people do not even say a prayer: t ... read more
"Evolving" With Dr. Ron Schmid 6 y
"Long before paleo became a popular trend, Ron integrated the teachings of Weston A. Price, D.D.S., Francis Pottenger, M.D., and other nutrition pioneers from the early 20th century, and argued for their ongoing relevance."
Dr. Kaayla Daniel wrote:
Legacy of a Health Warrior
My friend and colleague, Dr. Ron Schmid, died quietly in his sleep Thursday, July 20, 2017, at the age of 71. I want to honor him today by sharing stories of his courage, integrity and the rich legacy he left for all of us in the fields of natural health and nutrition.

Evolving Nutritional Awareness By Eating With Consciousness 6 y
From the Teachings of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov.
July 6, 2022 -
”When you eat ... make a habit of chewing your food at length, because the glands in your mouth then introduce various beneficial elements into it. This action can be compared to a kind of ‘cooking’ that makes the food easier to assimilate. And if you chew your food until it liquefies, only a small amount of waste is left over, and you will benefit from a lot of energy even if you eat very little.
The same laws govern breathing. That is why, when you breathe, you must absorb the air slowly and deeply so that it can reach the base of your lungs in order to fill and expa ... read more
Evolving Nutritional Awareness Through Gene Key Mutation 6 y
The manifestation of physical changes and their impact on the human digestive system.
Since starting the Evolving Nutritional Awareness I’ve discovered affinity with the perspective on diet and nutrition from a Human Design System perspective as well as from the Gene Keys perspective. The Human Design System and Gene Keys inform us that we are in the midst of a genetic mutation that will culminate in 2017. The mutation is taking place in the Solar Plexus Center at Gene Key 55. The following is from the 55th Gene Key presentation by Richard Rudd:
As the human body’s need for salt decreases our digestive system will begin to mutate. This is after all a solar plexus ... read more

Inspired recently with the idea of identifying the ”laws of nutrition” and realize that I have previously identified one of those laws in my post:
”Nutrition Works Well Only When The Food Is Digested!”

A Higher Evolution in Nutritional Awareness 8 y
How living in a consciously co-created environment accelerates the evolution of our "nutritional awareness" and how coupling these two factors will give the next generation an advanced placement in their relationship with the whole web of life.
Past presentations here at this ”Evolving” blog have pointed to the need to see nutrition in the larger context of what is truly nourishing and that by expanding our vision we will see the interdependent systems of nature. I now offer the following vision that embraces nature’s systems for co-creative forms of community.
A Life-Giving Alliance
The potential that farmers and chefs have to be at the ”frontline of well-being” is the living and life-giving foundation of a community vision that I call Cheeta: Culturally Healing ~ Ecologically Enlightening ~ Transformative Arts.

The Continuation of Evolving Nutrition Awareness 10 y
Enjoy Good Digestion with food prepared as medicine and eaten in a sacred way.
Greetings Once Again!
As mentioned before in this blog - digestion is an essential part of all that can make for good nutrition. Your ability to digest your food is arguably the most important contributing factor in your nutrition immediately followed by the quality of the food itself. At some level of awareness the wisdom of this truth is virtually universal as all cultures at least have the equivalent of saying ”Good Digestion” before sharing a meal. That’s because you can’t assimilate what you can’t digest.
If you can’t digest the food you eat then you may be at risk for a certain ... read more
Pottenger's Cats 11 y
Book review by Steve Solomon.
Another recommendation next to Weston A. Price’s ”Nutrition and Physical Degeneration is this book by Francis Pottenger.
”... One of the most valuable things I gleaned from Nutrition and Physical Degeneration occurred because of data that came from another small book called Pottenger’s Cats, also published by the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation. By combining the two books into one understanding I have obtained an ability to see how the human body adapts to inadequate nutrition, especially inadequate mineral nutrition. I suppose that’s why the PPNF keeps Pottenger’s Cats in print an ... read more

”... Fermentation ... has been practiced since before the dawn of history, and has been essential to diets in all parts of the world. Ferments are found in abundance in nearly every culinary tradition, and their cultivation is passed down generation to generation. Immigrants setting out on continent-crossing treks brought with them their sourdough starter or kombucha SCOBY, and passed it down to their grandchildren who passed it down to their grandchildren. Locked inside this relationship to ferments are beautiful generational t ... read more

August 2, 2012 -
Good nutrition comes from nutrient-dense real whole foods, properly grown and that are properly prepared vs. the fractionated, processed, modern foods of commerce. The evidence for this predominately comes from the findings of Weston A. Price and from many others who understand the significance of Price’s findings. Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay, is one of those who knows and highly values what Price gave to humanity.

”The digestive tract of a newborn is believed to be sterile. Exposure to the microorganisms from the mother’s birth canal, the hospital, the home, siblings, and elsewhere, quickly exposes the infant to a wide variety of microbes. However, the types of microbes that are established in the infant’s digestive tract are not left up to chance, but carefully controlled to produce the right proportions of the different organisms necessary for healthy digestive function. The MCFAs(i) in mother’s milk are essential in this process. T ... read more
Be Aware and Avoid Corporate-Controlled Nutritional Paradigm 11 y
Corporate-Inspired Nutrition by Sally Norton, MPH; Richmond, Virginia + The Weston A. Price Foundation's "Shopping Guide".
July 2, 2023 - Crisco
Although the ingredients today appear to have changed (from the original of cotton seed oil) the company still compares it to butter as if their product is better: https://crisco.com/product/all-vegetable-shortening/. They are able to do that only because of the misinformation about traditional animal fats plus propagandizing their displacing products.
All of this underscores the utter failure of public education that (like these food companies) are propagandizing to the detriment of people.

The Effects of Inferior Nutrition Are Virtually Endless! 11 y
"Nutrition" has both a "good side" as well as a really bad side!
Really Good Nutrition supports great health, total well-being including good mental-emotional disposition and natural beauty! Conversely the effects of inferior nutrition are virtually endless! It seems that for a lot of people their complaints along these lines are endless! However, I believe that real relief can be had for many if not most of the complaints. I also believe that complete relief may often require the resolution of an emotional conflict. (See German New Medicine at learninggnm.com)

Soil and Community - The "Matrix" For Good Nutrition! 11 y
Chef Jemichel continues on the theme of identifying what good nutrition is, the vital importance of how food is grown and / or raised as the source for its nutrient-density.
March 10, 2019 - Foods of and/or Through Commerce -
Weston A. Price most probably coined the phrase: ”foods of commerce” (aka ”displacing foods of commerce”) with the publishing of his book: ”Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.” The term refers to all the modern-day processed ”foods” such as white flour, refined sugar, canned milk, etc. and all the products that food manufacturers make with these and similar ingredients. In addition to the obvious loss of nutrients that is immediately consequential to all ”foods of commerce” there are other concerns to consider in regards to any food t ... read more

Among these, the highest levels are found in apples — especially the skins — onions, broccoli, cherries, berries and green tea.
For an especially concentrated source, consider onion skins. They may have 77 times more quercetin than the flesh. While consuming onion skins may be unpalatable, consider sipping on a broth made from onion peels for ... read more

November 12, 2023 - Consider Preparing Your Own Food -
All of us have highly unique digestive systems of various types that require different ways of just how we nourish ourselves, not to even mention the the differences in the foods themselves! From this perspective this writer now feels all the more validated that most people need to have a much closer contact with their food, a large part of which can come by way of preparing one’s own food most largely because of all of the ”energy” that one can imbue into their food through that process. For some people this closer relationship wit ... read more
