About Naturvore

Naturvore – (noun) is an omnivore that resists eating manufactured foods. The term also embodies a person who wants to achieve and maintain the most biologically authentic form of their self. Natural eating, or Naturvore eating, is simply a way of life rather than a short-term diet or fad. It is made up of natural foods as they were meant to be eaten, rather than natural ingredients that have been processed in a factory into food products. It includes fruits, vegetables, fermented and cultured foods, fish, naturally raised lean meats and eggs, beans, roots, herbs and spices and healthy fats such as MUFA’s and Omega 3’s.

Nutrient dense and healing to the body, Naturvore eating provides antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, fiber, and so much more. It is also anti-inflammatory, creating homeostasis in your body. There is no counting of points or calories. The plan is easy and satisfying, and can be individualized for your unique needs. You never need to feel deprived or hungry.

Naturvore eating enhances health in the following ways:


carbohydrates, protein, and fats from natural sources


the power of nature into our tissues by consuming the building blocks of life


personal biology and energy harmoniously as nature intended


more farms and orchards, rather than factories by encouraging the purchase of naturally occurring foods


our genetic heritage and the internal milieu of our cells, thereby creating beneficial attributes, within our body


anti-inflammatory, high in anti-oxidants, high in fiber, and high in micronutrients and vitamins


immune system and gut flora


chronic diseases and cancer


gluten, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors, glycemic problems, food addictions, and emotion eating

  • I met Dr Harpe in June of 2014 when he became my new primary care doctor. At this point in my life my health was going into a real downward spiral. I could only walk short distances without being winded. I had back and joint pain so severe I had taken to walking with a cane. Also had arthritis, acid reflux, diverticulitis, heart arrhythmia, borderline high blood pressure, migraine headaches and an autoimmune disorder called Relapsing Polychondritis, which attacks cartilage and connective tissues. Also, I was extremely overweight for not just my height, but for just about any height!
