Weston A. Price Foundation

The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including traditional nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies.

The work of foundation is based on the findings of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated non industrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. About 80 years ago, researcher Weston Price, D.D.S., observed a high degree of immunity among native cultures as he traveled to places like Africa, New Zealand, and the Andes Mountains. The indigenous cultures were virtually free of tuberculosis, cancer, dental disease, and arthritis. Price also noticed that the two strengths these peoples had in common were a diet of whole, unprocessed foods, and an active lifestyle. Scientific research has since confirmed Price's observations: proper immune function relies on good nutrition, physical activity and emotional health.

George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation

Macrobiotics is the practical application of the natural laws of change. The term comes from the Greek; "macro" - means great, and "bios" - means life. It is a tool that allows one to learn to live within the natural order of life, the constantly changing nature of all things.

 Macrobiotics as it is known today is the result of the tireless work and vision of George Ohsawa (1893-1966)
