Different People, Different Diets

Vegan? Paleo? Ornish or Atkins? Some nutritional experts say that all humans should follow a high meat, high animal fat diet; others, one emphasizing plant foods; still others, a more balanced “Mediterranean” type diet. Not only can these conflicting opinions lead to confusion among those trying to improve their health, many end up on a diet that just isn’t right for them. In this lecture, Dr. Isaacs will review the work of such pioneers as Dr. Weston Price, who showed that traditional groups of humans thrived on many different types of diets; Dr. Francis Pottenger, who demonstrated the effect of nutrients on the nervous system; and Dr. William Donald Kelley, who synthesized the work of these researchers into a coherent plan of individualized dietary and supplement prescriptions. During this presentation you will learn: - Different people have different dietary needs - Different people may need different amounts of supplements such as magnesium, potassium and calcium - The importance of listening to your body if a particular diet, especially an extreme one, does not feel right.
