I've decided to go ahead and share this with the group. This is an ebook version of the Nourishing Traditions book by Sally Fallon, a member and contributor to the Weston Price Foundation. I'm also posting a link to the Amazon listing, so you have the option to view this ebook on your computer and if you like it, you can buy the book version through Amazon. The opening pages go into nutrition and how our diet shapes our body's innate ability to heal itself. There are also numerous recipes and an entire chapter dedicated to bone broth preparations.

Thanks, just read the introduction. She mentions the acid/alkaline thing as well. More so saying not to worry it about though. Does give some helpfull info what to do if it does go out if balance though.
I'm so glad that you are looking at Nourishing Traditions. Eating cultured veggies with meat and fat is highly beneficial and helps the body to use the fat, rather than store it in your liver. I made some cultured cabbage and have been eating it with every meal and it is yuuuummmmyyyy and feels good. Next, I'm going to culture some radishes and ginger and start eating that as well.
BTW, I'm home in Florida living with my parents now. I got here last Thursday, so I'm now healing, eating and resting full time. What a relief!!! Good night, everyone.
Thanks Beth, I feel like giving up right now. I don't have the energy to even face the dishes from last night before I even think of tonight. Don't you feel like flying across the atlantic and culturing some cabbage for me :)
I'm certainly enjoying the componants of the WAPF, GAPs, paleo diet etc as a way to tackle my gut dysbiosis. Lots of different meats and fats feels very nourishing and tasty, despite not too much improvement in symptoms.
A shame my body likes to decline the good stuff like kraut, eggs and dairy (raw, butter, ghee, kefir etc) as these componants seem to have the most nutrition to tackle the gut problem.
Will use this book and recipes as something to aim towards hopefully for the future when my gut has healed a little bit.
I'm glad everyone is getting some use out of this book (I've had over 30 downloads since hosting it yesterday). I've been researching nutrition for 10 years now, shortly after my first crash at age 21, and I wish I had this information back then. I've gone the route of vegan, vegetarian, and now find myself back to omnivore after the previous diets did absolutely nothing to improve my energy and mitigate the stresses imposed by modern living. The contents of the book match my new perception--that anything my great-grandmother wouldn't have recognized as food should not be eaten. We need to all move back towards how our ancestors ate to avoid the plagues of modern societal conventions.
Incorporating light yoga and qigong with meditation has been a helpful adjunct as well, helping me on the days that I feel the lowest. I've also been watching videos by Dr. Bruce Lipton who's core message is that our thoughts affect the body at the cellular level. Disease is more complex than just chalking it up to what we think, but our perceptions shouldn't be discounted, which is why two people can be diagnosed with the same condition and both have different outcomes based upon how it affects their psyche (and ultimately their body at the cellular level).
I found this video interesting from Michael Pollen's recent talk in Great Britain--it appears that this is the next great movement in the realm of nutrition.
