When we lived in New Mexico in the early 90s it was easy to purchase raw organic milk at one of the local health food shops in Santa Fe. My friends Peter and Lilo here in New Zealand have been kind to forward some links on what is going on with raw milk in parts of the U.S. today. Do watch the following video and check out some of the other links.

You may recall I’ve twice interviewed Geoffrey Morell who, together with his wife Sally Fallon is a co-founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation which publishes Sally’s recommended book Nourishing Traditions and a comprehensive quarterly magazine,  Wise Traditions. They are raw milk advocates. Here are links to the two interviews I did with Geoffrey. I encourage you to listen. Geoffrey is an inspiring elder with much wisdom to share.

Rather than running to your doctor when you feel unwell,  first ask: “How can I help myself?” or, even better: “What can I do to help my fellow man?”

Geoffrey Morell

From dairy farmer to energy healer and medical intuitive, Geoffrey Morell has led a full life. Now in his 85th year, he and his wife, Sally Fallon-Morell, recently purchased a farm with the intention of establishing a dairy herd for the production of raw, organic milk. Why would a man in his golden years do such a thing, you might ask? Geoffrey Morell is the co-founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation and raw milk is one of the wonder foods espoused by the foundation. Besides, the man has found a way to tap into the fountain of youth—continue to dream, follow through on your dreams and begin every day with a simple request of the Universe (my paraphrasing): Please bring to me the people and circumstances on this day to allow me best to serve.

Sally Fallon-Morell and Geoffrey Morell

Geoffrey Morell, originally from New Zealand and now living near Washington D.C., was back in our fair land to attend the 100th birthday celebration of his uncle, Owen Maria. More on that in a forthcoming interview and blog. I interviewed Geoffrey last year when he visited to celebrate Owen’s 99th birthday. Longevity must run in the family. His earlier interview can be found here.

In our hour on the air on Voices from the North together this time around he shared several key points:

  • To be a healer requires three things: 1. The need to be receptive; 2. The need to change your way of thinking; 3. The need to change your way of eating. And to be a healer requires the banishment of three words from your emotional vocabulary—ego, jealousy and hate.
  • Geoffrey’s own methods of healing began after many years of meditation. He was then visited in the inner realms by Jesus, Sai Baba and a blonde woman who collectively instructed him.
  • Healers and others coming into contact with the public need to take steps to ground themselves.
  • Approximately one in 20 people that Geoffrey sees have entities attached to them. They come from three sources: 1. Not letting go of loved ones when they die. 2. Using a Ouija board. 3. Some form of voodoo.
  • Rather than running to your doctor when you feel unwell, Geoffrey suggests you first ask: “How can I help myself?” or, even better: “What can I do to help my fellow man?” And ask that all imperfections be removed.
  • Beware of unfermented soy products including baby formula. More on that here.

Anyone who follows my writing and broadcasts knows I’m been a long-term mostly raw food vegetarian/vegan. I don’t like to pigeon-hole myself by belonging to any particular belief structure or system. I tend to agree with Krishnamurti who said there is little freedom in ‘isms’. I recently attended a presentation by vegan friends. They quoted T. Colin Campbell’s interpretation of the China Study, saying there are grave health dangers in consuming dairy products, claiming many people are unable to digest the casein in milk. Campbell claims cancer could be almost be eliminated by avoiding animal products.

Then, along comes the ever-youthful Geoffrey Morell, who claims we should be consuming the nutrient-dense foods of our ancestors including animal broths and raw milk. Who’s right? I leave that one for you to decide. I used to think the world was painted in black and white. I tend to see it in gradients from black to white now, with vivid splashes of colour as well, of course  There are those who claim the Weston A. Price Foundation is based on outdated science. There are others who claim that a vegan lifestyle can leave you bereft of necessary vitamins and minerals. For example Dr. Ben Kim says:

If you are a strict vegan eating mainly whole, unprocessed plant foods, and you are experiencing health challenges, you can probably experience dramatically better health just by adding some organic eggs to your diet. Organic eggs from free range birds and organic butter are two foods that will provide you with essential nutrients that are not abundant or present at all in plant foods and may not conflict with your compassion for animals.

Dr. Kim’s complete article can be found here: http://chetday.com/strictvegandiet.htm  

Every step in each of our journeys is valid. We can all learn from each other and we will find peace when we can truly embrace and love one another, regardless of our beliefs. I wish you all peace and the best of health, John

“The author’s experiments and experiences working with nature simply amaze. . . . Beyond the Search is a treasure trove for those who enjoy planting and reaping as it seems nature intended, with respect for each animal and insect as belonging on the planet and therefore deserving of honour.”

Theresa Sjoquist on Suite 101

Yesterday I had the great privilege of interviewing 84-year-young energy healer and medical intuitive Geoffrey Morell on Voices from the North. Geoffrey is one of the founders of the Weston A. Price Foundation which has over 12,000 members around the world today.

Our interview, which I urge you to listen to, contains plenty of inspiration and food for thought (pun fully intended). Geoffrey takes on one of modern nutrition’s sacred cows—soy. He explains some of the dangers of soy ingestion including risks to fertility, mineral absorption and thyroid problems. He even mentioned the recent trend of feeding prisoners soy. You can read more on this important topic here.

For those of you that don’t already know, Dr. Weston A. Price was a highly respected dentist and nutrition pioneer whose studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples around the world established the parameters of human health.

Members of the Weston A. Price Foundation are entitled to receive the comprehensive 100 page quarterly journal, Wise Traditions. For more information please visit www.westonaprice.org. The magazine contains cutting edge health information and takes a no-holds-barred approach to the many myths foisted on the public by the various health voices in the world today.

Geoffrey says with assurance that we all have the ability to heal ourselves and others. He’d love to see more and more people developing their natural skills in energy healing. In order to be a healer you will have to abolish three things according to Geoffrey—ego, jealousy and hate.

He also would love to see all children entering school taught the following qualities: responsibility, reliability, respect, restitution and recreation. And by recreation he doesn’t mean sitting by a play station or computer playing games. He means healthy outdoor pursuits in contact with other people.

Geoffrey and the Weston A. Price Foundation advocate returning to the diet of our ancestors. I have a couple of questions about this. To eat meat requires so much more farmland and water than to eat fruits and vegetables. The world’s population is vastly larger than it was a few generations ago. Europe requires seven times its land area to produce the meat that it eats today. This implies that their food is grown somewhere else. I’m not convinced this is sustainable.

The other factor to consider is whether the bacon you buy today comes from an organically raised pig living outside as it would have been in the time of our ancestors. Most animals raised for food in North America at present are living in horrible indoor, hormone- and antibiotic-assisted conditions. Once again we have to seriously ask where our food comes from. When we do this we acknowledge our connection with our animal relatives on this planet and our decisions have an ethically based rather than ego (I want) based foundation. Think about that please. 

I’m sure Geoffrey Morell would agree.
