the key to healthWelcome to the world of holistic nutrition. Holistic nutrition not only includes the foods we eat and how we move (exercise/yoga) it involves everything we’re exposed to – thoughts and feelings; substances we breathe, wear and ingest; relationships and energy…all of which can be healthy or toxic.

Because there is so much misinformation out there, this site shares the real truth about what it takes to live well holistically. It relies heavily on the work of a dentist named  Weston A Price who taught of the importance of traditional ways. All the information shared has been critically evaluated for accuracy and objectivity.

Consider this site your health coach because knowledge is power.

Go ahead and explore. You’ll find articles and videos that inform and hopefully make you think. You’ll see that down the page on the right hand side is a list of popular topics. If something interests you, just click on it and you’ll be taken to the article(s) that addresses that issue. Whenever you see something in red print, click on it to further explore that topic, whether it be on this page, or within other posts or pages. I take objective research seriously and make it a point to provide respectable links.
