Event Details

We are very excited to welcome Sarah Ballantyne, PhD to South Central Pennsylvania for our annual fall event. Sarah has overcome multiple autoimmune and other disease and weight issues with a WAP-friendly Paleo diet. Her book documenting and thoroughly explaing how a modified Paleo diet can help anyone heal from a wide variety of illnesses and diseases, The Paleo Approach, has recently made the New York Times Best Sellers List!NYT Best Seller, The Paleo Approach by Sarah Ballantyne

As a medical bio-physicist, she is passionate about scientific literacy and about distilling scientific concepts into straightforward and accessible explanations. Sarah is deeply interested in understanding how the foods we eat interact with our gut barriers, immune systems, and hormones to influence health. Her curiosity goes further than just understanding diet and she is also deeply interested in lifestyle factors like sleep, stress and activity. Sarah believes that the true rationale for this way of eating and living stems, not from evolutionary biology (although that is a great place to start for forming hypotheses), but the thousands of scientific articles that each evaluate one small piece to the picture of how diet and lifestyle contribute to health and longevity.

In addition to Sarah, Maureen Diaz will present A Survey of Food Preservation Methods, an overview showing the pro's, con's, and how-to's of all methods of preserving our food from harvest to table.

Bob Swaim, a retired math teacher from Coopersburg, PA is coming to delight, educate, and entertain the young and young-at-heart with some of his vast collection of Human Powered Machines. Known affectionatly as, "Bob the Bike Man", Bob motivates and engages his audience with a powerful message of perseverance, hard work, and overcoming obstacles to move towards a healthier and more vibrant life while delighting his audience with his interesting, and often amusing, contraptions!

The Little Sisters Band of Buchanan Valley will be providing further enjoyment and entertainment as they sing and play a variety of bluegrass and gospel music which has made them local favorites.

Lunch is your choice: Oylers will prepare their grass-fed & finished beef cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and apple-infused sauerkraut, all available for purchase along with their fresh-pressed cider. We also will have a pot luck for those who wish to participate.

Additionally, we have many local, organic & sustainable foods & lifestyle vendors including Wild for Salmon!, while Oylers Market will be open to peruse a wide variety of organic and local products including their own apple products, meats, and local raw milk.

Northern Shenandoah Valley chapters of the Weston A. Price Foundation

This seminar is a joint effort of several NW VA chapters of the Weston A. Price Foundation, collectively known as the Northern Shenandoah Valley WAPF. We are made up of several long-time, dedicated Weston A. Price Foundation chapter leaders and members whose goal is to help educate the public as to sound nutritional principles, while advocating for safe, sustainable farms and the farm-to-consumer connections which are vital to our health and welfare. We also strive to connect holistic practioners with health care conusmers who are searching for integrity, freedom, and sound healing protocols within the "alternative" health care paradigm.
