Dr Price might well be called 'The Charles Darwin of Nutrition'." -The Laryngoscope, 1950.
Weston Price was a Canadian-born dentist. While practicing in the United States, he conducted research on indigenous cultures to find out why they were so healthy and had perfect children, completing a compendium of ancestral wisdom and ground-breaking work in nutrition.
Weston Price, observed the dietary habits of several diverse cultures, including the isolated Lötscher in Switzerland in 1931, Native Americans, Polynesians, Pygmies, and Australian Aboriginals. He saw that they had excellent teeth but, more than that, they enjoyed outstanding general health and vigour, and soon he was travelling the globe cataloguing indigenous people's diets and comparing the health of those who had maintained their ancestral diet and those who had starting consuming modern Western foods.
He observed that various diseases endemic to Western industrial societies of the 1920s and 1930s were rarely present in the indigenous populations he visited, but that as these groups abandoned their ancestral diet and adopted Western diets, they showed increases in typical Western diseases. He concluded that the modern Western diet, and, in particular, sugar, flour, and processed vegetable oils are responsible for these diseases and that Western methods of commercially preparing and storing foods stripped away vitamins and minerals necessary to prevent disease. He published this now famous work in 1939. Travelling the world, observing and recording, like Darwin, he made a revolutionary discovery that is slowly percolating into medical science.
Initially, the medical and scientific communities vigorously rejected this controversial work as lacking scientific precision; nevertheless, research has confirmed his conclusions and modern medical orthodoxy is slowly accepting that lifestyle and diet are a major factor, perhaps the major factor, in the degenerative diseases that have beset the developed world. A plethora of health-promoting diets have sprung from his observations including Paleo, keto, primal blueprint and the ancestral diet movement.
Dr. Henry Harrower, 1883-1953, is known as the father of modern-day endocrinology and established the Harrower Laboratory and Clinic in Glendale, CA.
He researched and was successful in treating illness with Organotherapy, the consumption of various glands in order to treat and rejuvenate glands. He sold his company to a pharmaceutical company in 1940. He was instrumental in establishing the Endocrine Society which now has more than 17,000 members in 120 countries. It is known to be the world’s largest and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. His original thesis and discoveries led to what is now modern-day endocrinology practices.
In 1912 he published the first of many books, Practical Hormone Therapy. It is here where he introduces glandular therapy for adrenal health, liver health, thyroid, heart, brain, pituitary, hypothalamus, reproductive organs and more. It is these original discoveries and applications that we base our line of supplements here at Heritage Glandulars.
We consider Dr. Henry Harrower the best endocrinologist in medical history based on his pioneering research and published discoveries which include:
