Michael and Monica Burgoon have been supporters of the Weston A. Price Foundation for many years. Please visit the Foundation’s website to learn more and to become a member.
Here’s a list of local food resources that reflect the values of Dr. Price as described in detail in his book “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”. We want to connect you to sources for the best foods in our community while supporting local farmers and retailers who offer the quality foods we need to be eating for optimal health and healing. Also, Monica offers nutrition classes at Towers Family Chiropractic that aim to educate while guiding participants in implementation of dietary and lifestyle changes; we use recipes, food tasting, and group support to inspire our students (see our testimonials from graduates of the nutrition classes). Contact our office to sign up for the next class.
Please check back regularly as this list is subject to change. Here is the current food resource list:
