"Evolving" With Dr. Ron Schmid 41 d
"Long before paleo became a popular trend, Ron integrated the teachings of Weston A. Price, D.D.S., Francis Pottenger, M.D., and other nutrition pioneers from the early 20th century, and argued for their ongoing relevance."
Dr. Kaayla Daniel wrote:
Legacy of a Health Warrior
My friend and colleague, Dr. Ron Schmid, died quietly in his sleep Thursday, July 20, 2017, at the age of 71. I want to honor him today by sharing stories of his courage, integrity and the rich legacy he left for all of us in the fields of natural health and nutrition.

Thank you Kaayla!
This is absolutely the best shared tribute I’ve ever read!
The closest I came to connecting with Dr. Ron was via ordering his products. I had written him a couple months ago but never go ... read more
Evolving Nutritional Awareness By Eating With Consciousness 5 mon
From the Teachings of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov.
October 3, 2017 -
Continued words of wisdom regarding the way we eat our food and how that affects digestion.
”When you eat, you should make the habit of chewing food for a while so that the salivary glands have time to do their work, for saliva contains various chemical substances that participate in digestion. Their action can be compared to a kind of cooking that makes the assimilation of food easier. So, if we masticate food until it liquefies, only a small amount of waste is left over, and we benefit from a lot of energies, even by eating a little.” - Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Evolving Nutritional Awareness Through Gene Key Mutation 10 mon
The manifestation of physical changes and their impact on the human digestive system.
Since starting the Evolving Nutritional Awareness I’ve discovered affinity with the perspective on diet and nutrition from a Human Design System perspective as well as from the Gene Keys perspective. The Human Design System and Gene Keys inform us that we are in the midst of a genetic mutation that will culminate in 2017. The mutation is taking place in the Solar Plexus Center at Gene Key 55. The following is from the 55th Gene Key presentation by Richard Rudd:
As the human body’s need for salt decreases our digestive system will begin to mutate. This is after all a solar plexus ... read more
"Evolving" With Biodynamic Agriculture 19 mon
A most promising source for our "Evolving Nutritional Awareness"!
The lion’s share of my own ”evolving nutritional awareness” can be most objectively be referenced (yet not exclusively) to Biodynamic Agriculture. My recognition of the right alignment that I have with the book Nourishing Traditions (by Sally Fallon) likewise includes eight references to Biodynamic Agriculture/foods. The Wise Traditions Journal that is published quarterly by The Weston A. Price Foundation not only includes a number of ”wise food traditions” but those of farming as well.
In traditional agricultural-based societies what may now appear as possibly three separate arenas of ... read more
Glyphosate and Gluten Intolerance 19 mon
The Scientist Who Found Gluten Sensitivity Now Says it Doesn’t Exist
Is Monsanto’s glyphosate the true cause of sensitivity to glutenous foods?
Although I don’t count this article as a perfect reference in support of ”evolving nutritional awareness” it most definitely is related as it is an excellent introduction to the impact that pesticides can have on our digestion.

The Laws of Nourishing Nutrition for Humans 19 mon
The most wise of nourishing traditions that have been very largely documented by Weston A. Price.
Inspired recently with the idea of identifying the ”laws of nutrition” and realize that I have previously identified one of those laws in my post:
”Nutrition Works Well Only When The Food Is Digested!”
the 6th -
”Law, not confusion, is the dominating principle in the universe.”
I’m reminded of the book ”Are You Confused” by Paavo Airola from the mid 70’s. I’m amazed that after forty years that there still are people who are confused about certain real foods - like raw milk!
Knowing that confusion has continued in the realm of nutrition it might be a good idea t ... read more

A Higher Evolution in Nutritional Awareness 29 mon
How living in a consciously co-created environment accelerates the evolution of our "nutritional awareness" and how coupling these two factors will give the next generation an advanced placement in their relationship with the whole web of life.
Past presentations here at this ”Evolving” blog have pointed to the need to see nutrition in the larger context of what is truly nourishing and that by expanding our vision we will see the interdependent systems of nature. I now offer the following vision that embraces nature’s systems for co-creative forms of community.
A Life-Giving Alliance
The potential that farmers and chefs have to be at the ”frontline of well-being” is the living and life-giving foundation of a community vision that I call Cheeta: Culturally Healing ~ Ecologically Enlightening ~ Transformative Arts.

The Continuation of Evolving Nutrition Awareness 4 y
Enjoy Good Digestion with food prepared as medicine and eaten in a sacred way.
Greetings Once Again!
As mentioned before in this blog - digestion is an essential part of all that can make for good nutrition. Your ability to digest your food is arguably the most important contributing factor in your nutrition immediately followed by the quality of the food itself. At some level of awareness the wisdom of this truth is virtually universal as all cultures at least have the equivalent of saying ”Good Digestion” before sharing a meal. That’s because you can’t assimilate what you can’t digest.
If you can’t digest the food you eat then you may be at risk for a certain ... read more
Pottenger's Cats 5 y
Book review by Steve Solomon.
Another recommendation next to Weston A. Price’s ”Nutrition and Physical Degeneration is this book by Francis Pottenger.
”... One of the most valuable things I gleaned from Nutrition and Physical Degeneration occurred because of data that came from another small book called Pottenger’s Cats, also published by the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation. By combining the two books into one understanding I have obtained an ability to see how the human body adapts to inadequate nutrition, especially inadequate mineral nutrition. I suppose that’s why the PPNF keeps Pottenger’s Cats in print an ... read more
Nutrition Works Well Only When The Food Is Digested! 5 y
Part 8 in a continuing series on what is good nutrition.
From a number of perspectives it appears that ”It doesn’t matter what we eat; it only matters what we digest.”
Not so long after the idea was presented to me that ”a peanut butter and jelly sandwich has all the nutrition that we need” I was introduced to the work of Adelle Davis through a member (or two) in my local Church. The idea of ”you are what you eat” came along at that same time. Regardless of the credibility issues of Adelle Davis, I had initially ignited my ”evolving nutrition awareness” with a sincere lust for the truth of what makes for good nutrition and that passi ... read more
Good Nutrition Prevents and Cures Tooth Decay 5 y
Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay, is one of those who knows and highly values what Price gave to the world.
Good nutrition comes from nutrient-dense real whole foods, properly grown and that are properly prepared vs. the fractionated, processed, modern foods of commerce. The evidence for this predominately comes from the findings of Weston A. Price and from many others who understand the significance of Price’s findings. Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay, is one of those who knows and highly values what Price gave to humanity.

The Effects of Inferior Nutrition Are Virtually Endless! 5 y
"Nutrition" has both a "good side" as well as a really bad side!
Really Good Nutrition supports great health, total well-being including good mental-emotional disposition and natural beauty! Conversely the effects of inferior nutrition are virtually endless! It seems that for a lot of people their complaints along these lines are endless! However, I believe that real relief can be had for many if not most of the complaints. I also believe that complete relief may often require the resolution of an emotional conflict. (See German New Medicine at learninggnm.com)

Soil and Community - The "Matrix" For Good Nutrition! 5 y
Chef Jemichel continues on the theme of identifying what good nutrition is, the vital importance of how food is grown and / or raised as the source for its nutrient-density.
A greater whole and more complete nutrition is revealed within a larger context than the one presented by modern-day conventional science of nutrition, if only we have the eyes to see it.
The bedrock foundation of nutrition is based on how food is grown and raised. The full reality and impact of this direct relationship between real food and where it comes from is not included in the conventional courses in nutrition (and consequently not taught to medical students or any of the conventional health fields where it could be most instructional to those who need the instruction - just as ... read more

What Is "Good Nutrition"? 5 y
Chef Jem launches this blog with some personal history regarding his life-long pursuit in understanding what makes for good nutrition and asks "What actually nourishes?"
Prior to starting ”Evolving Nutrition Awareness” as a blog I had built another blog: ”Chef Jemichel by chef jem” to support ”... The Recovery of Our Food Sovereignty in America”. Since then I’ve realized the need for (yet) another blog that is more focused on the subject matter of Nutrition and all that truly nourishes. It is my sincere hope that I can give general information, practical knowledge and personal wisdom regarding ”Nutrition” - especially in support of the greater evolution of nutritional awareness. To accomplish this greater ”mission” I make ref ... read more
