The Virginia Middle Peninsula Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation is a non-profit organization serving the Middle Peninsula of the Tidewater area. Our mission is to create local networks of people to help each other understand the paradigm shift in nutrition -- to nutrient dense, traditionally prepared, sustainable, ecologically grown food -- and to help put people in contact with area farmers who produce such food.
You can restore your health with nutrient dense, traditional foods. Learn the 11 principles observed by Dr. Weston A. Price that were common to all traditional diets throughout the world that produced lifelong good health before modern foods. Discover why our ancestors had no tooth decay, heart disease, diabetes, cancer or mental illness.
You will be very welcome to join us for networking, education, and learning the practical 'how-to' of preparing nutrient dense foods.

In the early 1930s, a Cleveland dentist named Weston A. Price (1870-1948) began a series of unique investigations. For over ten years, he traveled to isolated parts of the globe to study the health of populations untouched by western civilization.
Wherever he went (sequestered villages in Switzerland, Scottish Islands, Eskimos, South Sea Islanders, Peruvian Natives, Australian Aborigines) Dr. Price found that beautiful straight teeth, freedom from decay, good physiques, resistance to disease and fine characters were typical of native groups on their traditional diets, rich in essential nutrients.
Amazingly enough, even though these isolated groups were spread across the globe, they shared the SAME basic food principles.
The discoveries and conclusions of Dr. Price are presented in his classic volume, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. The book contains striking photographs of handsome, healthy primitive people and illustrates in an unforgettable way the physical degeneration that occurs when human groups abandon nourishing traditional diets in favor of modern convenience foods. The more recently published book, Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon validates Dr. Price's discoveries with modern day science as well as recipes for the traditional ways of preparing foods.
Evidence continues to mount linking chronic diseases, including mental and behavioral problems, with modern foods. Yet much nutritional advice today falsely promotes the consumption of processed food and makes us afraid to eat our ancestral foods. Please visit our website to learn more, and then come join us for local support and resources.
Ultimately, health cannot be achieved alone, working through the current food production and distribution infrastructure. Only a community of people and animals working together, physically interacting with each other, can produce true health for everyone. This Chapter is one way of helping to begin the process of forming such a community.
