Perfect Supplements enjoyed our weekend sponsoring the Weston A. Price (WAPF) Regional Conference in Massachusetts. We received a wealth of information and some of the best food around! As co-leader of my WAPF local chapter (Southern RI), one of the highlights of the weekend was attending the chapter leader breakfast with Sally Fallon (president of WAPF). I felt delighted to network with other chapter leaders in my region; we’ve already started planning educational events and sharing resources.

Curing Chronic Disease
The speakers at the WAPF conferences are always interesting and informative. At the northeast regional, I learned about insulin resistance (Richard Maurer, ND, author of The Blood Code), curing autism and other childhood illnesses, and using homeopathic cell salts to alleviate everyday health issues, such as the common cold (Tanya Renner, at Teleosis Homeopathic Collaborative).
Curing chronic illness, with proper nutrition and removal of toxins in your environment, is a common theme at WAPF conferences. Beth Lambert, M.A., author of A Compromised Generation, shared her experience,
…that children can recover from chronic illnesses, including autism, by altering their environmental influences and by stepping outside of the traditional western medical paradigm.”
Families interested in learning more about curing childhood illnesses, including autism, ADHD, allergies, asthma, learning or behavioral disorders, diabetes, can visit Epidemic Answers, Beth Lambert is on the board. Other speakers at the regional conference included Hilary Boynton and Mary Brackett, authors of The Heal Your Gut Cookbook, a cookbook based on the healing diet principles outlined in Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s, MD, famous book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome.
At the 2013 international show, I had the opportunity to learn about alternative remedies for heart disease and cancer from Dr. Tom Cowan, author of The Fourfold Path to Healing. I highly recommend his website and book for more information about healing chronic illnesses. There is a search box at the bottom of his webpage.
My favorite vendors at the regional conference were the two Amish farms from PA, Meadow Ridge and Miller’s Organic. Their products are out. of. this. world! I stocked up on homemade mayonnaise, beet kvass, golden butter, crispy nuts and my ultimate find… goat cheddar! Love, love, love this stuff. You can contact the farms directly to find out about co-ops in your area, or to have products delivered.
