ONLINE CLASS WITH SALLY FALLON MORELL starts Tuesday, July 17th at 7:00 pm
I could not let this opportunity pass without doing something BIG about it.  This is the first time Sally Fallon Morell has offered her NOURISHING TRADITIONAL DIETS in an online format.  In the past you had to attend one of her speaking engagements.  
I have purchased the course ($150.00) and it will be shown at 6710 Professional Parkway, Sarasota, 23240 in suite 201 (map below).  It is a 7 week class presented every Tuesday at 7:30 to 9:00.  Look at the course outline below and come to all 7 or pick and choose the ones that really interest you for $5.00 per person per class.
No need to RSVP, I have a very large room reserved.

I can't wait to see this presentation again...I have seen it 3 times in the past and I always come away with something new and useful.  This is the real deal on food ways and I hope you will take advantage this opportunity for yourself and your family.

Course Description:An intensive seven part live lecture series broadcast weekly.
Animal fats, properly prepared whole grains, enzyme-enriched foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why you need these foods too. Beginning with a presentation of Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Sally explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets that conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods--foods that your family will actually eat--back into your diet including easy breakfast cereals, soups, snack foods, high enzyme condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you!
Learn about:
  • Butter, the number one health food

  • Dangers of modern soy foods and soy infant formula
  • The conspiracy to promote vegetable oils and hydrogenated fats

  • Old fashioned foods that give limitless energy and vibrant health
  • The unfortunate consequences of modern farming methods
An articulate communicator, Sally Fallon Morell blends culinary expertise with a finely honed capacity to cut through to the truth about our eating habits and their consequences. Her full-spectrum nutritional cookbook, Nourishing Traditions (visit www.newtrendspublishing.com), shows through research and recipes how the wise food choices and preparation methods of isolated traditional cultures promoted vigorous good health, longevity and freedom from dental problems and mental disorders. She serves as the founding president of the Weston A. Price Foundation (www.westonaprice.org) and founder of A Campaign for Real Milk (www.realmilk.com).

Why we are seeing so much about good bacteria

The news and TV ads are loaded these days with talk about "good bacteria".  Take Activa for a week and feel better is a popular claim.  I am thrilled to see good bacteria, or gut flora sneaking into the mainstream.  Modern medicines, antibiotics, toxins all play a role in compromising the delicate balance of good and bad bacteria in our guts (when I say GUT I mean the part of our bodies starting with our mouth and ending with our anus).  But, as is often the case, mainstream media has oversimplified the significance, the role and the importance of a properly balanced gut.

But, it is still a step in the right direction.  For those of you who want to know more about the gut's influence on our health, here is a super article with Just the facts, Ma'am.

Read on and tell me what you think.  What are you doing to increase the health of your gut, and in turn, your overall health?  http://loveyourbelly.com/resources/gut.html
