You can join up by going to the Weston A Price Foundation site and clicking on “become a member” – If you have any problems processing your membership, get in touch with us and we can process it for you.


What activities does the Wellington Chapter organise?

Some chapters organise regular meetings, but our experience has been that Wellington members are more interested in information than in getting together.This might be a good thing to change, so if you are keen on organising anything please get in touch and we will be happy to put the word out.

 Many of the WAPF related interests that we involved with are also our full time job, and we are sometimes rushing to keep up with them all, so we tend to streamline our activities to some extent. 

On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays we send out parcels to customers all over NZ from our business Nature Foods including WAPF related foods such as cod liver oil, coconut oil, and probiotics

On Wednesdays we are a pick point for Alt Energy Farm Co-op milk and have hundreds of litres of raw milk dropped off in our porch, along with a lot of free range eggs.

 On Thursdays we are a pick point for Wairarapa Eco Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and have organic fruit and vegetables dropped off in our porch

 Deb sees clients for personal health consultations and uses a range of modalities including whole food (WAPF) nutrition, GAPS and other therapeutic diets, EFT, Kinesiology, Reiki and Allergy Antidotes. 

We regularly organise bulk purchases of a range of whole food products, including orders from suppliers such as www.havocpork.co.nz  and  www.happypet.co.nz

How can I remineralise my teeth? 

First, go to the website of Ramiel Nagel, author of “Cure Tooth Decay”, which will give you enough information to get started. If you need serious help, it would be well worth getting his book.

To give a very brief summary, tooth decay isn’t caused by sugar coating our teeth, but rather by imbalances in our body chemistry.

So to heal tooth decay, some of the basic requirements are:

A nutrient dense, whole foods, Weston A Price type diet, including:

Bone broths & marrow

Cod liver oil

Butter oil, or lots of good butter

Good quality animal foods, including some raw

Fermented foods

(Some people need further specific help to normalise their hormones and body chemistry)

A fluoride free, glycerine free tooth cleaner

The last one is important because glycerine coats your teeth, so that they can’t remineralise. Unfortunately, virtually all toothpastes contain glycerine. Other alternatives such as tooth powder are hard to find in NZ. Baking soda is another option. We have several fluoride free, glycerine free tooth pastes available:

http://www.frot.co.nz/nature/other_items.htm

We are often asked questions about dental health, and knowing this is vast and complex subject, to be honest we have until now mainly just referred people to other sources.

But recently the subject has really taken off, more people know about dental cover ups like root canals and fluoride, and are aware that like most mainstream nutrition advice, most mainstream dentistry advice is a dangerous bunch of lies.

So we have put together some good information on a new “dental health” webpage:

http://www.frot.co.nz/wapf/dental.health.htm


What Farmer’s Markets are there in Wellington?

Hill Street Farmers’ Market. The market takes place every Saturday, from 8.30am until 12.30pm in the carpark of the Cathedral of St Paul in Hill Street, Thorndon.

Victoria Street Farmers’ Market, with around 35 stalls, takes place at its location in the Victoria Street car park every Sunday through the year, apart from Christmas Day.

It runs from 4 am through to around 2.30 pm and can be accessed from Victoria, Vivian or Willis Streets.

Saturdays:

Farmers’ Market in Paraparaumu (at Lindale)

Tawa Lions Saturday Market.

Sundays:

Harbourside Market

Do you have organic meat available? 

Finding good quality meat locally is often a bit tricky. In the past we have organised some home kill meat deliveries, but storage and delivery has been difficult. Although we do have four freezers and nine chili bins, they are often all in use, and meat pick ups have to go very smoothly or it can all get a bit messy.  

At this point we don’t have any local meat suppliers, and we usually buy our own meat from Common Sense Organics or Moore Wilsons.

We do get quite a few enquiries, so if you know of any good potential local or mail order suppliers please keep us posted. What we are particularly looking for is meat from animals raised on high quality organic pasture.

We sell several types of pure gelatin through Nature Foods

http://www.frot.co.nz/nature/other_foods.htm#gelatin

The red Great Lakes one needs to be dissolved in hot water and is a traditional gelatin as used in soups and jellies. The green one (Collagen Hydrolysate) dissolves in cold and is mainly used in smoothies. (The std red gelatin is available in either beef or pork)

Where can I buy sauerkraut (fermented veges)? 

 There are now several excellent varieties available at Common Sense Organics, so we have generally moved away from holding any stock ourselves.

And Pure Pantry which is available in: Traditional, Classic Caraway, Beetroot Ginger, Cauli Curry, and Hot Chilli Salsa

Where can I get a Caspian Sea Yoghurt starter?

  Deb was interviewed on National Radio about how to make Caspian Sea Yoghurt (Sat 30 June 2012)

 The show was “This Way Up” with Simon Morton.

 You can hear it online here:

www.radionz.co.nz

 This generated a lot of interest in yoghurt starters, and we have people asking where they can get some.

 If you’re in Wellington, you can get it from us.

 It’s $5 for starter and instructions. 

 We can courier it out if necessary for an extra $6, but its best if you can pick it up so it’s not out of the fridge too long.

 You can pick it up from here most times during next week; just ring us beforehand so we know when to expect you. 934 6366

 If you’re not in Wellington, first try contacting your local chapter

Which types of plastic are safe for food and water storage?

Plastic products are commonly marked with a number enclosed by the recycling symbol, which is typically found on the bottom of the product. This symbol is used to identify the plastic and recyclability of the product. In general plastic products marked with the numbers 2, 4 and 5 are the safer choices. Avoid 3 and 6 and 7

http://www.babygreenthumb.com/p-122-safe-plastic-numbers-guide.aspx


What type of stools are best?

The ideal stool types are 4 or 5. Types 1, 2 and 3 = hard or impacted stools. Type 4 and 5 = normal or optimal. Type 6 = loose stool, subnormal, or suboptimal, and type 7 = diarrhea.

Where can I find out about Vitamin C Megadose Therapy?

A book that provides an excellent introduction is “Vitamin C the Real Story” by Steve Hickey and Andrew Saul

It’s available here:

www.fishpond.co.nz

Another excellent book is “Primal Panacea” by Thomas Levy – it’s quite hard to find in NZ but is available from here:

www.pathfinder.co.nz

Unfortunately Weston A Price died in 1948, prior to much of the research on Vit C therapy, and it’s not an area that the foundation has researched, so there are no links on the main foundation website.

More information is available here:

www.vitaminc.co.nz

Good quality Vitamin C is available in NZ:

 

Liposomal Gel

www.naturefoods.co.nz

www.nzlf.org

www.johnappleton.co.nz

Liquid

Micro Liposomal Vitamin C is also now available in NZ.

This is more convenient to take than the regular liposmal vitamin C – a liquid rather than a gel, but it is also more expensive.

http://www.frot.co.nz/nature/vitamins_minerals.htm

https://www.pachealth.co.nz/Products/Detail.aspx?id=9844

Powder

Powder – this is good quality nice tasting orange flavoured powder, but powder is only really suitable for small maintenance doses of up to 1- 4 grams per day – for mega dosing take Liposamal Vit C.

www.naturopath.co.nz


Where can I buy copies of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine? 

If you are unable to find copies of this brilliant magazine your local book shop, you can order it or subscribe to it here – www.naturalmedicine.net.nz 

We highly recommend this NZ magazine and consider it the best health magazine in the world.


Where can I buy lard?

Havoc Prime Pork Products www.havocpork.co.nz sell lard, made on their own premises from their own pigs.

This is available by order at Commonsense Organics


 

What is your position on vaccinations?  

We strongly recommend rejecting and avoiding ALL vaccinations, especially for babies and children, and we have the backing of the Weston A Price Foundation on this.  westonaprice.org/vaccinations

Because this is a highly emotive and controversial subject, we have previously tended to avoid getting into much public debate about it. But in 2015 the vaccine industry propaganda became even more aggressive, so we now take a more public stand on this important issue.

Our own webpage about vaccinations is here:

Where can I find out about SCENAR therapy?

To have a session of this highly effective therapy, or to learn to do it yourself, we recommend seeing Pip Martin

Where can I buy raw goats milk in the Wellington area?

Contact Louise Hammond – louise.hammond@xtra.co.nz 

She is in Te Horo. Milk is $6 litre pick up or $7 delivered to the Wellington drop off points.  


Can you recommend a good dentist in the Wellington area?

About 20 years ago when I learned about the dangers of mercury amalgam fillings (like many people who grew up going to schools with NZ dental nurses I had a mouth full of small mercury fillings that were unnecessary in the first place) I was recommended a dentist called Peter Scott.

He is an exceptionally good dentist and we recommend him highly. He’s not a specialist “alternative” dentist, but just does what he’s asked to do, efficiently. He has a lot of customers having mercury fillings removed, and for smaller repairs we find we can get away with no anesthetic because he is quick and knows what he is doing.

How can I get clean safe water to drink?

Unfortunately the mains water in Wellington is toxic, like much of the water in NZ, so you need a filtration system to make it safer even for showering or bathing in, let alone drinking. It certainly has fluoride, and chlorine in it, as well as brown slime from time to time, and probably other toxic contaminants.

Most tap water in NZ is toxic because it contains fluoride, chlorine, aluminium (alum), and in some cases (where there are old water pipes) asbestos as well

It’s not just drinking the tap water that’s a problem – bathing and showering in it can lead to fluoride and chlorine absorption.

A good household carbon filter will take out chlorine, asbestos, and aluminium, but it will not take out fluoride. This requires a more expensive filtration system (around NZ$3000-$5000) to sort out your entire household water supply for bathing and showering. Water that has gone through full filtration systems has no minerals left in it, so is not a good source of drinking water.

Reverse osmosis filters and distillers are cheaper, and can get most of the fluoride out just for drinking, but they remove the good minerals too, and this causes other problems in the long term.

If you are unable to obtain drinking water free from a good source, and have to buy bottled water, keep in mind that some bottled water is just tap water that’s been filtered to get rid of the chlorine taste, while some bottled spring water is good quality. Some of the world’s best bottled water comes from NZ: www.antipodes.co.nz

In Wellington, bulk clean drinking water is freely available directly from the Petone Aquifer fountain, and the Dowse Art Gallery taps in Lower Hutt, and in small amounts from the Moore Wilson’s fountain in Tory St.

Petone Aquifer fountain:

Dowse Art Gallery taps, Lower Hutt:

IMG_0643b

Moore Wilson’s fountain:

IMG_4732

To get clean water for washing in (which is actually more important than the drinking water because we absorb far more fluoride from showering in it than we do from drinking it) two whole house filters are needed, such as a fluoride master for the fluoride and a carbon filter for the chlorine and other contaminants.

www.watersco.co.nz/fluoridemaster

It’s also a good idea to use a pre-filter to take out the brown slime before it clogs the main filters – there is a lot of brown slime and seeing it collect in a filter can be quite an eye opener! – The pre filter cartridges generally need replacing every 2-3 months.

Sorry to say that, it’s a nasty and expensive surprise, but fluoride is far more dangerous than most people in NZ realise.

For more info see our page about fluoride:

www.frot.co.nz/wapf/fluoride.htm

We recommend reading Dr Jerry Tennant’s book “Healing is Voltage”

www.amazon.com/Healing-Voltage

Also download his free newsletter “hypothyroidism” for a good explanation of what fluoride is really doing.

www.tennantinstitute.com


Is it possible to be a vegetarian while following WAPF guidelines?

The foundation recommends eating a full range of animal based foods including meats and bone broths, so the short answer is NO.

Some people work around this by including dairy products and fish. This can work reasonably well, but it is not true vegetarianism.

It comes as a surprise to some vegetarians to learn that many WAPF members are ex-vegetarians.

For more info see these links:

www.westonaprice.org/vegetarianism-and-plant-foods/myths-of-vegetarianism

www.westonaprice.org/vegetarianism-and-plant-foods/not-to-go-vegetarian


Where can I buy raw cheeses?

Aroha Organic Goat Cheese is Certified Organic, GE free and was the first Cheese Co in NZ certified by MPI to produce raw milk cheese. Hand crafted on the farm from their own goat milk.

www.organicgoatcheese.co.nz

Imported French cheeses are available from the LeMarche shop in Thorndon Wellington, and they sell online too

www.lemarche.co.nz

It is entirely possible to obtain NZ made raw cheeses which are every bit as good as the French ones and a lot cheaper, but we are not officially allowed to advertise or sell them


 

What is the best diet for cats?

Raw meat, raw fish, no cooked foods, no diary, and especially, no cat biscuits. One large meal per day. Organic. No supermarket “pet foods”

No vaccinations and minimal chemical flea treatments.

For more information see:

Eden-Lea Ragdoll Cats

Super Maines

Where is a good place to buy a vegetable juicer?

Pure Wellbeing has a huge range of information online about juicers, and is also an excellent place to buy one. We have found the Oscar juicers to be very good.

Health Products also have a great range – we recommend the Lexsun Mark II

If you would like us to price any juicers for you, we can supply them through Nature Foods


Where can I buy 10L water storage containers that are good quality plastic?

Most of the ones for sale in the shops make the water taste of plastic. The best ones we have found are WILLOW 10L WATER CARRY CANS (WW6084) – we used to mail order them from Willow in Auckland, but sometimes Supercheap Auto have them for $23.75 each which is a good deal – they are good water containers, ideal for filling up at Lower Hutt (perfect height too). Although they are made in Australia, they can be hard to find in NZ.

Where can I buy high quality Cod Liver Oil in NZ?

We sell Green Pastures fermented CLO through our food business Nature Foods (samples of all the flavours and varieties are available)

We also sell NutraPro extra virgin CLO through our food business Nature Foods (samples of all the flavours and varieties are available)

Where can I buy organic butter in Wellington?

It comes in 25kg blocks from the wholesaler, so we usually buy it from Commonsense Organics, and leave cutting it up to them (for the amount of work involved in cutting it up into useable sized chunks it’s well worth it) But note that this is butter made from pasteurised milk. At this time we don’t know of anyone selling raw organic butter.

Also available from Commonsense Organics is “Organic Times” butter – it tastes nicer and contains sea salt which is a good nutrient

www.organictimes.com.au

We sell NutraPro Butter Oil through our food business Nature Foods (samples are available)


Where can I buy organic fruit and veges in Wellington?

We recommend Commonsense Organics – they have five Wellington branches

Wairarapa Eco Farms – Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) – wefs.co.nz

Urban Harvest have an amazing website – they are an online shop with home delivery

There is a local box scheme here – www.organicboxes.co.nz


Do you have a Facebook Page?

Yes: WAPF Wellington Chapter on Facebook

To use the page you will need to have a Facebook account. Some people are understandably reluctant to sign up for Facebook. It’s a huge personal info database, and yes, it’s certainly recording all the information you supply it with.

But you can set up a Facebook account without using any real personal info, and using a pseudonym you can use Facebook without revealing much. 

Probably the only truly efficient way to use Facebook is to avoid using it altogether, but failing that, set time limits on your FB use and stick to them! Facebook can be set up to display an interesting news feed, but it’s not easy and requires a very selective choice of likes, unlikes, and blocks.

We are not fans of Facebook, and our posts are very intermittent – we hope to get things moving along more on Steemit, which we are very enthusiastic about and keen to see replace Facebook.

Ian’s Steemit account is here, and Deb’s is here. We will soon start posting new WAPF material on Steemit.


 Where is the online copy of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration?

Weston A Price’s book is available here
