Details: Review “Primal Nutrition presents the principles of healthy traditional diets that continue to work today.” ― From the foreword by Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation “I know of no better introduction to the works of Weston Price, or a better and more thoughtful discourse on traditional diets, than this book.” ― From the foreword by Nora Gedgaudas, CNS, CNT, author of Primal Body,
Primal Mind “Primal Nutrition is a well-researched, comprehensive resource for achieving better health with the use of traditional foods and time-honored methods of preparation. Dr. Schmid clearly explains why understanding and implementing the ancestral dietary principles outlined by Dr. Weston A. Price in his worldwide travels is critical if we are to overcome many of the health challenges of our time.
This essential book is especially useful for anyone who desires to adopt all or part of a ‘paleo diet’ but is confused by its various interpretations.” ― Edward Bennett, president of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation and editor of the Journal of H “In Primal Nutrition, Dr. Ron Schmid has done a superb job of integrating the work of Weston Price, D.D.S., and Francis Pottenger, Jr., M.D., with recent research and a variety of popular diets, such as the macrobiotic diet, the Atkins diet, and the Pritikin diet.
This book will be of great value for all clinicians interested in healing their patients or clients. In my opinion, it should be required reading for all medical students, dental students, nutritionists, chiropractors, naturopaths, dentists, and others in the healing arts. It will also be valuable to anyone interested in improving his or her health. I recommend it without qualification.” ― Michael B. Schachter, M.D., CNS, director of the Schachter Center for Complementary Medicine and cer “Throughout my years of research and teaching food energetics,
I am often asked to recommend books on the subject. Naturally and without hesitation my suggestions include Weston Price’s seminal work, along with Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions, and a few other authors who extol the many benefits of traditional foods. Ron Schmid’s Primal Nutrition is a welcome addition to my list. With so many diet books available we are often confused with which direction to turn, whether it’s for general health maintenance or more personal health issues.
Primal Nutrition is a great book for helping you get past the confusion inherent in making these choices. Schmid has a great respect for all traditional primal foods and knows well their historical role in health and their nutritional benefits. He leaves few stones unturned when it comes to supporting you in making wise and sensible decisions with diet and traditional foods.” ― Steve Gagne, author of Food Energetics:
The Spiritual, Emotional, and Nutritional Power of What We E “Primal Nutrition brings you back to the basics of a good and healthy diet. It is well grounded and invaluable.” ― Christopher Vasey, N.D., author of The Acid–Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health and Natural Remed "Confused about the paleo diet fad? Dr. Ron Schmid, now a retired naturopathic physician, has a broader perspective on what has worked well for traditional cultures for millennia.
He's informed by the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, a dentist who studied indigenous people's good health and disease resistance with their diets of whole, natural foods including meat from wild game and grass-fed domestic animals, seafood, raw-milk dairy products and, to a lesser extent, whole grains.
As Schmid explains, modern diets with processed foods are at odds with ancestral diets. In some traditions, certain nutrient-dense foods such as seafood, liver and raw milk products had a sacred quality with rituals that revolved around them, reinforcing their importance for health and immunity. And yet when indigenous cultures shunned their traditional foods, ill health resulted. Today, the modern diet is so often industrialized.
