About the presentation
As we tend to our herbal gardens the soil at our feet is teeming with life, microbia of all sorts. Similarly, the human body harbors up to ten times as many microbial cells as human cells.
What are these microbes and what are they doing? What do they tell us about ourselves? From weight loss and cancer, to chronic inflammation and even decision making, these bugs are playing a major role. Let’s take a look inside and see how we can foster a friendly family of bugs and approach wellness from a new perspective.

7/28/16 – Joseph R. Heckman, PhD: “Parallels in the Raw Milk and Organic Agriculture Movements”

On Thursday, 7/28/16, Joseph R. Heckman, Ph.D., will discuss ‘Parallels in the Raw Milk and Organic Agriculture Movements’, at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. It is the featured presentation at the Summer meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation. Doors open at 6:30pm. The presentation begins at 7. Free admission (donations invited). Ample on-site parking lot is accessible from Center St (at the equivalent of 316 Center St, if you’re googling).

About the Presentation

In recent decades a diverse community of dairy farmers, consumers and nutrition advocates has campaigned to secure and expand the right for individuals to produce, sell and consume fresh unpasteurized milk, commonly referred to as “raw milk”.  Their efforts to increase public access to raw milk share important parallels with the emergence of the organic food movement over the past century.  Both the raw milk and organic food movements originated with farmers and consumers who sought to replace industrialized food production and processing practices with more traditional ones.  Both movements equate the preservation of natural integrity in farming and food handling with more wholesome, nutritious food and environmental conservation. Advocates for both movements have had to work diligently to overcome perceptions that the food production and processing practices they endorse are relevant in the modern era, notably with regard to organic agriculture’s productivity and the safety of raw milk.  Finally, the raw milk movement has the potential to economically benefit family farmers much as organic agriculture has proven capable of doing.

4/28/2016 Sarah Hinsch: ‘Achieving an Alkaline Environment Where Disease Can Not Thrive’

On Thursday, 4/28/16,  Sarah Hinsch will discuss ‘Achieving an Alkaline Environment Where Disease Can Not Thrive’, at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. It is the featured presentation at the Spring meeting of the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation. Doors open at 6:30pm. The presentation begins at 7. Free admission (donations invited). Ample on-site parking lot is accessible from Center St (at the equivalent of 316 Center St, if you’re googling).

Sarah Hinsch is the owner and founder of the Lehigh Valley’s own Greenmouth Juice Bar and Café. After a lifetime of eating a diet that starved her body of minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients, thereby creating a very acidic environment in her body, Sarah began to have some health problems. She was inspired back in 2005 to take control of her life and her health by shaking off the information she had learned by growing up in the 1980’s (the “fat free era”) and perusing studies in holistic nutrition, food therapy, and other healing modalities. In December 2013 Sarah became a Certified Health and Wellness Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC. She now owns Greenmouth Juice Café with locations in both Easton and Allentown.

Sarah will be discussing creating and maintaining a proper pH environment in the body by following the 80/20 rule of eating: 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods. She will draw from the expertise of practitioners such as Dr. Rangnor Borg and Gary Taubes as well as touching on some controversial healing modalities for cancer. Sarah will also, of course, discuss the benefits of juicing and how you can use this powerful nutrition tool in your life.

Farmers/producers may bring grass-fed / organic / biodynamic products for sampling or sale – check out their tables before & after the presentation (doors open at 6:30pm, presentation at 7pm). Books & Videos will be available too.

 


1/28/16 GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II

On Thursday, 1/28/16,  the Lehigh Valley Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation will present the work of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride in “GAPS Diet: Healing the Gut, Part II”, at the United Steelworkers Hall, Bethlehem. Doors open at 6:30pm. The presentation begins at 7. Free admission (donations invited). Ample on-site parking lot is accessible from Center St (at the equivalent of 316 Center St, if you’re googling).

This is the second part of our hugely popular presentation on The Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet. In this second DVD, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride will be delving into the diet itself and discussing ways to prepare foods to best heal and seal the gut.

Please note: there will be a brief recap of the Part I presentation so if you were unable to attend the Fall 2015 presentation, fear not, you can still benefit from part II.

     The GAPS Diet has its foundation in the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) created by Dr. Sidney Valentine Haas to heal digestive disorders.  Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride has taken SCD and evolved it further to create a full protocol for healing digestive disorders and subsequent issues.

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride holds a degree in Medicine and Postgraduate degrees in both Neurology and Human Nutrition.  In her clinic in Cambridge she specializes in nutrition for children and adults with behavioral and learning disabilities, and adults with digestive and immune system disorders.

Dr. Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998.  She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults overcome their disabilities and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field. She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute. The results of her work have supported her position on this subject.
