Gary Collins: Yeah, we’re going to be talking about a little bit of permaculture today. I think it’s good for my followers and listeners. Jack has kind of an interesting background as well, as how he got into what he does. And if you could Jack, could you just briefly explain The Survival Podcast and what you do?
A little about the Nutritional Therapy Association:
With diet and related heath concerns in the headlines throughout the US, The Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.® (NTA) has been conducting classes in holistic nutrition since 2001. NTA has over 1500 graduates representing 48 states and 2 Canadian provinces.
NTA’s Nutritional Therapists address nutrition from a holistic perspective. As the “food pyramid” continues to crumble, NTA’s training offers a clear alternative to the highly-processed, grain-based, low fat, high sugar nightmare that is the official diet of modern America.
The Nutritional Therapy Association is founded on the beliefs of such nutritional pioneering greats as Weston A. Price and Dr. Francis A. Pottenger (refer to the Price Pottenger Nutrition Foundation www.ppnf.org), considered two of the greatest scientific minds ever to research nutrition, food supplies and their effects on modern society.
In today’s difficult economy, everyday folks seeking a health-and-energy boost may be hesitant to purchase “expensive” vitamins and supplements from “upscale” stores and distribution outlets. Instead, honest folks turn to Internet sites such as Amazon and eBay to purchase vitamins on the cheap for themselves and their kids. I urge you not to do this!
Recently I interviewed Paul Greives of Primal Pastures located in Temecula, California. I’m a big fan of Primal Pastures and what they are doing in the sustainable farming movement. They are currently trying to raise $40,000 using a Kickstart funding program to grow their farm and purchase more animals.

As most of you know, I’m an experimenter and always working towards optimal health. With that being said, recently I decided to try a grand experiment during a friend’s bachelor party getaway weekend. Now get your mind out of the gutter; it’s not one of those types of experiments. Sorry to disappoint some of you but this experiment does not involve strippers, large amounts of drugs or a tiger!
Prior to leaving for my friend’s bachelor party, I had gone shopping to bring some healthy foods along in an attempt to eat somewhat healthy and not “go off the rails” with my Primal eating habits. But later I would change this thought process….
I did pack my healthy traveling foods, such as macadamia nuts, organic jerky, and some almond butter. I have to give myself an “A” for my thought process and effort. I highly recommend my Primal/Paleo followers to pack and take these foods with them when they travel or have a busy schedule.
