“You are what you eat” is a term that has been used for years to encourage us to consider the quality of food we consume. Our bodies are divinely designed exceptional machines that can do more than we can imagine…including being amazing filters. The rise of chemicals in our everyday life and in food has increased exponentially in the last few decades. We were not designed for this and can only filter so much. This is why Eden, and so many others, are practicing and advocating natural, organic, whole food living by feeding your body what it so desperately wants and avoiding, as much as possible, what it doesn’t. This is healthy living, and the Weston A. Price Foundation is based on principles that have been the foundations of health for centuries. 

“The [Weston A. Price] 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 accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants” (About the Foundation - The Weston A. Price Foundation (westonaprice.org)). 

Dr. Weston A. Price, who lived from 1870 to 1948, was a dentist in Cleveland, OH who traveled the world studying tooth decay in villages from the Eskimos and Native Americans to African tribes, Switzerland, and more. He was on a quest to study the causes of dental decay and physical degeneration that he was noticing in his dental practices. In his travels and studies he found that dental decay and deformed dental arches with crowded, crooked teeth were a major sign of physical degeneration, that he believed was caused by nutritional deficiencies. He also found that certain tribes and villages with a traditional diet rich in foods with essential vitamins and minerals had beautiful teeth, without decay, as well as a strong resistance to disease and other  characteristics of good health. 

“When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated peoples he found that, in comparison to the American diet of his day, they provided at least four times the water-soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat-soluble vitamins, from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish, organ meats, eggs and animal fats—the very cholesterol-rich foods now shunned by the American public as unhealthful. These healthy traditional peoples knew instinctively what scientists of Dr. Price’s day had recently discovered—that these fat-soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, were vital to health because they acted as catalysts to mineral absorption and protein utilization. Without them, we cannot absorb minerals, no matter how abundant they may be in our food. Dr. Price discovered an additional fat-soluble nutrient, which he labeled Activator X, that is present in fish livers and shellfish, and organ meats and butter from cows eating rapidly growing green grass in the spring and fall. All indigenous groups had a source of Activator X, now thought to be vitamin K2, in their diets” ( Timeless Principles of Healthy Traditional Diets - The Weston A. Price Foundation (westonaprice.org)…click this link to learn even more, including the 11 characteristic/principles of a traditions diets – a fabulous resource). 

Today’s modern American diet is leading us down a detrimental path and we at Eden believe it’s time for that to change! Contrary to what we’ve been told, our bodies need good healthy fats, pasture-raised meats, bone broths full of gelatin for a healthy gut, whole organic fruits and vegetables not laden with glyphosate, cultured raw cheese and milk with the probiotics and enzymes you need to digest dairy, plus soaked/fermented nuts to be able to properly digest them and add life-giving probiotics (see this article). Our ancestors can testify, and many who have adopted these principles can attest to the benefits of this way of life. It’s not a diet…it is a lifestyle change to live the way we were intended to live! Back to Bible basics! 

With the Eden Grow Tower we have combined modern technology with ancient traditions to deliver you a product that emulates God’s amazing creation.

"The symmetry and the symphony of nature - that’s why we call the company Eden, and that’s why we call it the Genesis system - we are not trying to change nature, what we’re trying to do is understand how nature functions because it is a perfect system. Understanding that fact, and utilizing high tech together with ancient grow techniques, and bringing all of that together is what’s going to allow us to create these super-functioning systems that can outperform while still working inside of nature"- Bart Womack, CEO Eden Grow Systems. 

We love that Weston A. Price feels the same…

“The board, staff and membership of the Weston A. Price Foundation stand united in the belief that modern technology should be harnessed as a servant to the wise and nurturing traditions of our ancestors rather than used as a force destructive to the environment and human health; and that science and knowledge can validate those traditions” (About the Foundation - The Weston A. Price Foundation (westonaprice.org)). 

It’s not about going back to the caveman lifestyle. It’s about taking lessons learned and applying them to our everyday lives and continuing to improve. The world we live in is fast-paced and most of us don’t have the time or resources to hunt for all our meat, raise all our pastured meats, milk our cows every day for raw milk, or even have a garden to raise our own organic produce. This is where community and technology can lend a helping hand. The Weston A. Price Foundation is a fabulous resource where you can find farmers/growers near you (The Weston A Price Foundation) to get these powerhouse foods…you might be surprised how close they are! Technology like our Eden Grow Tower can help automate growing your own organic produce all while using ancient traditions, like hydroponics and aquaponics (currently in testing). There are so many ways to adopt these principles and make them do-able and realistic in your life for the ultimate health of you, your family and future generations!
