Nutritional depletions created by the modern diet often manifest as typical symptoms of aging. How many do you have: achiness or stiff joints, low energy, brain fog, forgetfulness or poor concentration, sleep problems, trouble regulating blood pressure, inability to maintain a healthy weight, poor body temperature regulation, low immune function, delayed recovery from exercise, injury or illness…or any of the ‘-itis’ conditions (arthritis, tendonitis, gastritis, diverticulitis, bursitis, etc).Read More
Leaky Gut Syndrome (also known as intestinal permeability) is a major contributor to ill health and chronic conditions. Leaky gut occurs when the digestive tract develops gaps between intestinal cells. Once holes are present, this normally selective membrane can no longer regulate which particles are absorbed into the body. Foreign particles can freely enter the blood stream and cause inflammation and damage anywhere in the human body. Additionally, these intruders force the immune system into overdrive…draining energy, depleting nutrient resources and creating unintended health consequences.
Even Hippocrates said it: “All disease begins in the gut.”Read More
Quality sleep is so elusive that millions of people do not remember the last time they had a full night of uninterrupted slumber. Unfortunately, our modern environment and uninformed behavior choices are to blame. Sleep is a hormonally-driven cycle, highly sensitive to multiple stimuli such as stress, environmental factors and dietary triggers (including modern foods, additives, caffeine or alcohol). The Paleo Lifestyle inspires time-honored behaviors to foster the sleep cycle on all levels.Read More
As many know, the modern lifestyle induces all sorts of stress – both obvious stressors such as traffic jams, paying bills or relationship changes…and inconspicuous ones such as sensational news, poor food choices and even holding grudges. The Paleo Diet soothes internal, physical stress. Not only does this reduce the body’s overall stress load, it also enhances the capability to handle stressors of modern life.Read More
Science now proves cholesterol and saturated fats do not cause heart disease! Arterial plaques occur under a specific set of circumstances: the presence of oxidized fats and oxidized cholesterol within inflamed arteries. The Paleo Diet eliminates sources of these dangerous oxidized versions of fats and cholesterol, reduces inflammation through the whole body, plus provides vital heart-health nutrients to support the heart and arteries.Read More
Bone weakness can be a manifestation of inadequate or absence of critical bone nutrients, absorption interference or insufficient skeletal use (sedentary lifestyle). Bone loss conditions include osteoporosis, osteopenia, poor dental health, loss of height over time, bone pain, or stiffness in muscles and joints. Bone health is not as simple as supplementing extra calcium…have you ever noticed levels of osteoporosis continue to rise despite high rates of calcium supplementation?Read More
