Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine
by Ron Schmid, N.D.

(page 1 of 1)    Articles Home

When first published, Dr. Ron's first book was a voice in the wilderness crying out, "Animal foods are good for you!"

     Dr. Ron tells a story about his first day in naturopathic medical school in 1977. The last class of the day was naturopathic philosophy. Surveying the class of thirty mostly vegetarian students, the teacher, Dr. Gordon Hurlburt, a crusty old naturopath who had been in practice for over thirty years, offered the comment, "Most of you people look like you could use a good steak."

     Nine years later, when Dr. Ron wrote Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine, he and Dr. Hurlburt were still in the distinct minority. The years since have seen the pendulum swing toward a renewed understanding of the importance of high quality animal foods in the diet. Thousands of health care professionals and nutritionists have learned about the research of Weston Price, Francis Pottenger, Max Gerson, and others. The work of those pioneers showed beyond any doubt the critical importance of nutrients found only in seafood, and meat and raw dairy products from grass-fed animals.

"If the wholistic movement for drugless therapy, using natural foods eaten by our ancestors has a hero, it surely must be practicing naturopathic physician Dr. Ronald F. Schmid. He has authored an information-packed text employing poetic language and an obvious love of naturopathic science…I anticipate using the book as a reference for decades."

-Dr. Morton Walker, medical journalist,
in The Townsend Letter for Doctors, 1987, #51

     Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine is so valuable because it accurately presents the wisdom of our ancestors. The answers are there for us if we can open our eyes to them.
