The Weston A. Price Foundation for Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts

Dr. Weston A. Price was a dentist and researcher who traveled around the world to find the healthiest people on the planet, and study what they were eating. The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the knowledge of what a healthy human diet really looks like through education, research, and activism.

Dr. Price studied native tribes in Canada and Florida, Islanders in the South Seas, Australian Aborigines, Maoris in New Zealand, Peruvian and Amazonian indigenous people, Eskimos, and African tribesmen. He found that all the diets had some things in common:

  • Bone Broth
  • Pasture-Fed Livestock and Traditional Fats
  • Nutrient-Dense Foods, especially Vitamins A and D
  • Some salt, including sea salt
  • Lacto-Fermentation of seeds, grain and legumes
  • NO refined foods, such as white flour or white sugar
  • When dairy was present, they used Real Raw Milk, not pasteurized

Dr. Weston A. Price found that the foods that helped to keep all the different cultures healthy were whole natural foods, such as meat with its fat, organ meats, fish, insects, whole milk products, whole grains, vegetables and fruit. They did not consume anything made with white sugar, refined flour or rancid vegetable oils. Dr. Price discovered that there were sacred foods that were collected and prepared to ensure strong minds, bodies and spirits and in every one of the healthy groups there was a nutrient which was common in their diets that acted as an activator for the other nutrients. He called this nutrient Factor X and it is found in fish eggs, shellfish and butter from cows grazing on rapidly growing green grass in spring and fall. Weston Price’s research revealed that high-vitamin butter oil was almost magical, especially when combined with cod liver oil. Dr. Price used this combination of high vitamin butter and cod liver oil to successfully treat conditions such as osteoporosis, tooth decay, arthritis and rickets. This combination of Factor X in High Vitamin Butter oil combined with fermented cod liver oil was the pinnacle of Dr. Price’s work.
