The Thinking Moms’ Revolution is thrilled to have Corganic as a Gold Sponsor for our upcoming eConference GMos, Organics and Food Allergies; How To Feed Your Family Without Losing Your Mind.
Dan Corrigan, a founder of Corganic, began researching the relationship between nutrition and health in the 1990s while working as a software engineer in the Detroit, Michigan area, when his health began to nosedive and his father was diagnosed with MS. He served on the leadership team of the very first chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and connected with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who created the GAPS diet and wrote Gut and Psychology Syndrome and will be presenting at our eConference. Dan also trained with Donna Gates, author of The Body Ecology Diet, to become a Body Ecology Coach.
When Dan’s Godson was diagnosed with autism, he was able to provide their family with the tremendous amount of information he had accrued over the years as he brought himself back to optimum health with careful diet and nutritional support, and that child has since recovered!
In 2009 Dan partnered with Karen Myers and Archie Welch to launch Corganic.com “Real Food For Autism,” which features a variety of nourishing fats and products for digestive health. Karen completed nutritional coursework through Hawthorn University, CA. Her focus has been on supporting lower-income families in Michigan who have children on the spectrum. She is also overcoming her own health challenge of Lyme disease with persistence and continued research. Archie connected with Dan and Karen through his late wife, Deidre Currie’s work with WAPF as a chapter leader and conference organizer. Corganic’s founders share a common passion for the research done by Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, two highly respected leaders in human nutrition.
Dan Corrigan describes the founding principle of Corganic, “The key to good health is a good diet. Just as we believe that organic foods are best, we also believe that supplements without unnecessary additives are best.”
Corganic.com is the retail site where their unique line of Organic 3, Inc. digestive supplements are for sale along with the highest quality food and nutrition products, all closely aligned with the GAPS Diet. They began their supplement line around their two pillar products: The Gutpro Probiotic (which we are actually using right now with Nick and like very much) and an extra-virgin cod liver oil, which is the first and only raw fish oil available. It has the exact same nutrient profile as the fish it is derived from.
They are continually adding products, aiming to feature around 50, primarily foods and fats. Corganic is working with Rosita Foods in Norway to bring new handcrafted fish oils to the market, including Ratfish Oil, which has been found to be particularly helpful for children on the autism spectrum.
Corganic carries the best of the best nutrient-dense foods and some very hard to find items. “Some so hard to find, we had to create them ourselves,” says Corrigan.
Scrolling through the Corganic website, I mentioned to Lisa Joyce Goes, a.k.a. “The Rev,” that they carried Duck Fat, which you don’t see everyday. She told me, “Noah is allergic to just about every oil, including coconut! We use duck tallow for cooking and as a carrier for our essential oils.”
Please join us LIVE on October 7th from 10-5pm EST for the eConference. The conference is available to watch for a calendar year after 10/7/14 after you register.
