The Whole Herb: The Most Important Principle of Herbal Medicine Ready Nutrition Official Website Healthy Living, Food Storage, Preparedness, Recipes And More

The more holistic and natural the supplement, the better it will be for you and the better it will enable you to perform. Learn more about the importance of the whole herb with herbal medicines.
One of the problems with supplements overall is the tendency for pharmacological science (commonly referred to as Conventional Medicine) to attempt to isolate each and every chemical in the supplement. Conventional Medicine then bases a supplements efficacy on the individual chemicals and pronounces an edict as to its effectiveness. This edict is based on the results of testing with individual chemicals identified and either extracted from or duplicated (reproduced) in the lab. These actions violate one of the foremost principles of Herbalism and Naturopathic substances:

The whole herb or food is more effective than any of its parts administered individually or in combination.

What this means is that with all herbs (especially those identified as utilitarian for the human body), there are constituent parts that render the herb effective in one or more departments, such as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, diuretic, and so forth. The constituent utilitarian part of that herb is in balance with all of the other constituent parts/component substancesfor that particular plant. The plant is in balance. From a biological perspective and in medical terminology, the plant is maintaining homeostasisthe physiological balance of form and functionwith the amounts of component chemicals and substances in itthat are balanced/counterbalanced by other substances.

Lets take garlic (Allium sativum), for example. Allicin is the substance found in garlic that is productive as an antimicrobial and antibiotic when consumed by humans. That level of allicin in the garlic is also balanced by a host of other chemicals, such as sulfur, for example, in a proportion that maintains homeostasis for the herb. In other words, when you consume the herb, you take in the substance that will benefit you (the allicin) as well as other substances that can b...

Is the CDC More Prepared for This Years Flu Season? And Are You? Ready Nutrition Official Website Healthy Living, Food Storage, Preparedness, Recipes And More

After the 2017 horrific flu season, many are wondering if in fact the CDC is prepared for this year's flu season. Hear the CDC's concerns, know the facts, and learn how to improve your immune system naturally to fight the dreaded flu season.
Its almost that time of year again: the sniffling, aching, coughing, feverish misery that is flu season.

In the United States, flu season occurs during fall and winter. The exact timing and duration of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Flu activity typically peaks between December and February, but activity can last as late as May, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The CDC is pushing hard for everyone to get the flu vaccination, but due to the flawed science behind the egg-based manufacturing process and the 2017-18 botched flu vaccination, many doubt its really worth it. Fortunately, there are things you can do to reduce your risk of contracting the flu, but we will get to that later in this article.

US health officials are trying to get ahead of the flu this year to avoid a tragic recurrence of the 2017-2018 flu season, which the CDC claims led to 900,000 hospitalizations and 80,000 deaths, including 180 children. So many people caught the flu that it was at epidemic levels and some hospitals and pharmacies across the US ran out of antiviral drugs like Tamiflu.

According to a recent article published by Bloomberg, the flu vaccine is expected to be more accurate this season. In the Southern Hemisphere, influenza activity hasnt been too bad so far, which is a good sign for the US and Canada, the article says.

However, it is still too early to predict what things will be like once the virus starts spreading. The onl...


Sourdough Croissants The Weston A. Price Foundation

This recipe incorporates an ancient grain (kamut) as well as unbleached white flour, and the dough is very easy to work with. The end result looks very much like a traditional, yeasty croissant. 


  • 1/2 cup white flour starter
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour starter
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp warm filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 cup whole kamut flour
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1 tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 3/4 pound butter
  • 1 egg


  1. Combine freshly fed starters with warm water, honey, 1/2 cup kamut and 1/2 cup unbleached white flour forming sponge.
  2. Allow sponge to rise, covered until doubled.
  3. Add sifted flours: 1/2 cup kamut and 1 cup unbleached white flour with salt.
  4. Place on surface sprinkled with extra unbleached white flour. Roll into circle, wrap, and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  5. Make butter pack by cutting butter into equal-sized pieces, placing between two pieces of parchment paper, and pounding into a square.
  6. Remove dough from fridge, roll into long triangle, and place butter pack in the middle.
  7. Wrap butter pack in dough, sealing edges.
  8. Roll out dough into long triangle, fold into thirds, wrap, and chill for 45 minutes. This is your first turn.
  9. Repeat the above process 4 more times. On the last time, allow to chill for a few hours to overnight.
  10. Remove dough from fridge, allow to rest for 10-20 minutes. Roll out into long rectangle, about 18x12.
  11. With pizza or pastry cutter, score every 3 inches. Cut each rectangle into two triangles.
  12. Roll into croissants and place onto parchment paper-lined cookie roll sheet.
  13. Brush croissants with egg wash (one egg beaten with 1 tsp water).
  14. Cover and allow to proof until croissants jiggle when you move the pan (this can take awhile).
  15. Preheat oven to 390F.
  16. Brush croissants with egg wash again.
  17. Bake croissants for 12 minutes. Lower heat to 325F and bake for an additional 11 minutes. Remove from heat.
