"Connecting nutrition, the environment and well-being."

Ancient Sun Nutrition was founded to make a positive contribution to our planet and its inhabitants at a critical juncture in human history. Our company grows out of a simple but revolutionary mandate. We believe that the time has come to bring an end to unnecessary pain and suffering, wherever and whenever possible.

Dis-ease today is rampant at every level of our society. The statistics are mind-numbing and tragic:

1. Heart Disease ……. # 1 cause of death in the US; 725,000 deaths per annum (1999)

2. Cancers of all types……. #2 cause of death in US; 549,838 deaths per annum (1999)

3. Diabetes……………..……#6 cause of death in US; 70,000 deaths per annum (1998)

4. Pneumonia…………………………………………..90,000 deaths per annum (1998)

5. Kidney Disease……………………………………...35,000 deaths per annum (1999)

6. Chronic Liver Disease………………………………25,192 deaths per annum (1998)

7. Alzheimer's disease...#8 cause of death in US; 44,536 deaths per annum (1999)

8. Aids/HIV …………………………………….14,802 deaths per annum (1999)

9. Hepatitis ………………………………………5,000 deaths per annum (1999)

10. Food poisoning……………………………….5,000-9,000 deaths per annum in US

11. Food related Illness, ………………. 76,000,000 cases reported per annum in US

12. Overweight 35% of US Pop and 26% of US pop Obese (Adults only) Total 61% US

13. Influenza……………………………………….1724 deaths per annum (1999)

14. Children under 5 years of age; 783,000 reported cases per annum of Pneumonia

15. Children 5-17 years of age; 883,000 reported cases per annum of Pneumonia

16. Children under 5, 11,000,000 reported cases of acute ear infection per annum

17. Children 5-17, 6,400,000 reported cases of acute ear infection per annum

18. 4% to 6% of US Population estimated to have symptoms of ADD/ADHD

Based upon the above statistics, (which are far from complete), and to place these figures in context: approximately 58,000 Americans lost their lives during 8 years of conflict in Vietnam, yet each and every year in the United States more than 1,564,368 Americans die from largely preventable health conditions, almost 27 times the number who died in the entire Vietnam War. This may give some idea of the actual magnitude of the current health crisis in America.

Yet, the fact is, dis-ease is not the natural condition of the body/mind and is largely a matter of personal choice; conscious or unconscious. ( Not a popular notion in our present health paradigm!) Throughout the 1800's and into the early 1900's, numerous written eyewitness accounts from doctors, dentists, explorers, adventurers, trappers, and scientists, testified to the fact that upon visiting or living with indigenous native peoples, who were still eating the traditional diet and living according to their teachings; what they observed was the amazing absence of chronic degenerative disease, including diabetes, heart disease and cancers.

According to Dr Weston Price, a dentist who spent 20 years living and traveling among indigenous cultures; dental caries (tooth decay) and gum disease were rare or non-existent. Most written accounts from the individuals who were witness to these apparently amazing facts of native life, observed that the indigenous peoples became susceptible to all manner of disease and illness upon leaving their traditional environment and native diet. It was noted that the only remedy or cure for indigenous people who had acquired these modern diseases was to return to their native villages, lifestyle and diet, otherwise in most cases they became much sicker and soon died.

Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote a colleague in London in the early 20th century from Gabon, Africa, to the effect that he was astounded by the fact that he had conducted some 10,000 medical examinations of native peoples of Gabon, finding little or no evidence of diabetes, tumors or heart disease. At that time in England, those conditions were becoming more and more common, especially among the upper classes; though not even statistically close to our current worldwide pandemic.

It is clear from the evidence at hand that Science, Government and our educational institutions have failed miserably to understand the causes or cures of much of today's illness. Millions are dying and suffering unnecessarily from preventable conditions. This is our current National and International dilemma.

Ancient Sun carries a mandate to be a part of a global solution to this urgent and untenable state of affairs. Our strategy is to incorporate and blend traditional foods and traditional wisdom with state of the art marketing and packaging. Our mission is to share the knowledge and ways of life that kept many indigenous people healthy and happy for thousands and thousands of years. This is not to imply that a total return to the traditional ways of life is likely or desirable. It is not going to happen. It is time, however, to understand and apply wherever and whenever practical, the timeless wisdom and knowledge that belonged to many ancient indigenous peoples.
