Ancient Greek Longevity recipe / Παραδοσιακή συνταγή μακροζωίας από την Αρχαιότητα

Here is a very special traditional recipe for wild greens pie, called Kaltsounia from the village of Kremasti located in the Parnonas mountain range in the Lakonia prefecture. Sofia has kindly accepted to reveal her secret recipe for the first time. Sofia is the owner of Kremasti Restaurant located in the village. The wild greens are picked from ancient times from the surrounding mountains during the winter and left to dry away from direct sunlight. They are then served in their homes and in the village Restaurant all year round. Sofia and her family provide all the ingredients used from seed to final serving.

Interviewed by Dr. Matina Chronopoulou N.D., PhD whos family roots are from this village and who hosted Athan Gadanidis and Marilyn Harding by who filmed and produced and translated the video. We are very greateful for the special interest they showed in sharing this knowledge with everyone around the world.

Αυτή είναι μια παραδοσιακή συνταγή της περιοχής του Πάρνωνα για μια τοπική χορτόπιτα του χωριού που αποκαλείται από τους ντόπιους Καλτσούνια.  H συνταγή αυτή είναι ένα από τα πολλά μυστικά μακροβιότητας των κατοίκων της περιοχής. Η Σοφία που είναι ιδιοκτήτης του τοπικού εστιατορίου είχε την ευγένεια να μοιραστεί μαζί μας αυτά τα μυστικά. Τα άγρια χόρτα συλλέγονται από τους αρχαίους χρόνους από τα γύρω βουνά και αποξηραίνονται φυσικά με τοπικές ειδικές μεθόδους. Οι ντόπιοι τα λένε “αρμάδια” και τα χρησιμοποιούνε σε διάφορες συνταγές.

Η Dr. Ματίνα Χρονοπούλου N.D., PhD που κατάγεται από την Κρεμαστή μοιράζεται μαζί με τη Σοφία αυτά τα μυστικά. Η παραγωγή του video έγινε από τον Athan Gadanidis και τη Marilyn Harding.

Matina Chronopoulou talks about the Revival of Natural Medicine

Marilyn Harding was invited to visit the village of Kremasti in the heart of the Hellenic Republic in Lakonia by educator & naturopath Matina Chronopoulou. The native villagers here live to be well over 90 and 100 years old without once having been to a modern doctor.

The remarkable thing about this particular village are the ones that emigrated to far away lands from Australia to California and everywhere in between returning. They are driven by the need to fulfill the promises they made as they departed to one day return and give back to the village they left behind. They are rebuilding their ancestral homes, raising money to improve the infrastructure, roads, water, parks, not for tourism (very little available rooms for rent if any) but to re-build a community and become part of it once again.

William Davis – Wheat: The UNhealthy Whole Grain

The wheat of today is not the wheat of our mothers or grandmothers. Modern wheat is the product of genetic manipulations that have transformed its properties. Modern wheat is now a 2-foot tall, high-yield semi-dwarf strain, different in both appearance and multiple biochemical features from traditional wheat. Introduction of this new strain of wheat was associated with the appearance of a long list of health problems, along with weight gain and diabetes.

According to Dr. Davis, saying goodbye to all things wheat provides outsized and unexpected health benefits, from weight loss, to relief from acid reflux and bowel urgency, to reversal of diabetes, migraine headaches, and learning disabilities in children. Continue reading
