“We are at the beginning of the ‘Bio-Individual Healthcare Era’ where individuals are cared for based on their unique genetic and biological needs – not just by the long-held ‘medical standard of care’ or polypharmacy.”
“Every day we learn more about the vital and health sustaining role of real foods; human and animal health depends on more than rudimentary chemistry – of calories in or out to maintain or achieve longevity with vitality. Today science is illuminating the Wisdom of Traditional Food Knowledge in detail never dreamed of by our ancestors.”

Our Journey With Food - 2nd Edition!
“Here we are at the top of the food chain and we’re more confused about what to eat than ever before. In Our Journey With Food, Tammera Karr provides us with a glimpse into the past and explains how and why we’ve lost our connection with healthy food. This book is not only a fascinating and fresh look at past culinary traditions, it’s also a wake-up call to get back to the basics — unprocessed, healthful, wholesome foods.”
