Threefold Nutrition 8 y
An introduction to a small scale model of an integrated food systems for most city folk to consider.

Time Now for Rethinking The Flu Virus! 8 y
Chef Jem's perspective regarding what the flu viruses are essentially all about
Just sent this to the Biodynamic Yahoo group:
This is the list that I think may be most receptive to possibly rethinking about the flu virus.
For well over thirty years I have considered ”colds” to simply be the body’s way to cleanse. I have found that when I have managed my diet and allowed for intentional cleanses that I do not ”catch” colds (even though many around me may be ”catching” colds). I am convinced that ”colds” are not contagious. I think the same about the flu. I believe the flu is simply the body’s means for an advance cleanse. Since I don’t suffer ”c ... read more

a pedagogy that views the child as a whole incarnating soul with certain age-appropriate needs. The camp would begin with Waldorf children and possibly welcome all children (regardless of their educational orientation) however I would let the founding parents deter ... read more

Amazing! Is History Repeating Itself? 8 y
Americans very urgently need to know where "Acts of Congress" pertain to. Proposed legislation appears to be an attack against organic and small farming nation-wide; however according to Fundamental Law do "Acts of Congress" truly have that power?

The following is an excerpt from pages 293 to 295 of ”Nutrition and Physical Degeneration” by Weston A. Price
(Chapter 16) Primitive Control of Caries
”In my clinical work I have sought for extreme cases of active tooth decay in order to test the primitive wisdom. Many of these cases have been furnished by members of the dental profession in other cities and states. By the simple procedure of studying the nutrition of the individual, obtaining a sample of saliva for analysis, seeing Xrays of the individual’s teeth and supporting bone, and getting a history of the systemic overload ... read more
