On today’s show we have the super badass double-sister DJ act Krewella. Apart from being a globetrotting EDM duo, playing huge shows, and having millions of listeners, Yasmin and Jahan are staunch Paleo and health freaks. They recently decided to do their whole current tour Paleo, which we think is quite a feat, and apparently it is going fantastically! We chat to Krewella about exactly how this schedule works, as well as their day-to-day fitness practices. We also dive into some of their family history, lessons they learned from their parents, and their favorite foods growing up. Hearing such amazing stories from such successful artists is massively inspiring to us at Paleo Magazine Radio, and we are sure it will be for you too. These sisters show just how possible it is to commit and follow through on their plans and are a great example of the rewards of this. So let’s get right into it!

On today’s show we host Brian Richards, the founder of Sauna Space, who produce a range of portable infrared light and heat therapy devices. These come in the form of desk lamps and portable tents for use at home. Brian came upon this business after seeking solutions to his own health problems, and found that near infrared light helped solve his insomnia almost immediately. This experience, coupled with the gap in the market that he noticed, prompted him to found the company, and we are very happy to speak to him about his flagship products and what is surely going to be a booming business. During our chat we break down the health benefits of sauna therapy as well as compare inferior and more common instances of these practices. The foundation of heat and light therapy is mirroring the experience of our ancestors, much like a Paleo diet does with food, so this makes a lot of sense to us here at Paleo Magazine. Listen in to hear more!

  • How Brian’s personal struggles with insomnia led to the development of the product.

On today’s show we welcome Raquel Tavares, who has founded Fourth and Heart, a young company making ghee-based products.

Raquel’s company has been growing rapidly, and we chat to her about this as well as her reasons for starting the company and her personal connection to ghee. If you are a food or a cooking nerd and you want to learn more about one of the best fat sources out there, in one of its best forms, this is the episode for you! Listen in to hear all about it.

Today on the show, we welcome Chris Kresser. Chris is a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. He is the author of the New York Times best seller, The Paleo Cure and has just released his brand-new book titled, Unconventional Medicine. More and more people around the world are starting to recognize that the problems we are facing in the current healthcare system are not ones that someone else can fix. Recent statistics suggests that we are going to have a shortage of over 50,000 primary care providers by the year 2025. One in two American's now have chronic disease, 30% of kids now have a chronic disease, and the average amount of time that a patient gets to speak before they're interrupted by the doctor is just twelve seconds! These are just some of the alarming statistics released in Chris’s book, which address the current state of conventional medicine in America today. So what can we do about it? In this episode, we discuss the role of functional medicine and how the move toward this approach is almost inevitable. Chris explains how we can start to implement functional medicine into our lives today and start addressing the root causes of our problems, rather than masking the symptoms. This is an insightful episode for those in a medical field, health activists, and anybody looking for a solution to their personal, long-term health.

  • What inspired Chris to write Unconventional Medicine.  
  • Functional medicine versus conventional medicine.
  • Addressing the symptom rather than the root cause.
  • The three-part framework for addressing chronic disease.
  • Why the medical world needs to address behavior change.
  • Learn more about the tribe in Bolivia living a Paleo lifestyle.
  • Evolutionary biology and its contribution to medicine today.

  • The role of big pharma and insurance in medicine today.
  • Why health insurance does not mean health care.

  • Is functional medicine more cost effective than conventional?
  • Chris explains The Health Care Population Pyramid Medicine.

Today on the show, we welcome Bill Schutt. I hope that you already ate, because today, we are talking about a topic pretty unlike anything we have talked about before on the podcast: Cannibalism. Bill is a zoologist and bestselling author who recently wrote a book titled Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History where he talks about cannibalism across all species, including humans. This isn’t a sensationalist book, but rather a sociological, cultural and anthropological look at the reasons why cannibalism occurs in nature. Bill covers topics such as cannibalism among ancestral humans and Neanderthals, as well as the diseases related to forced cannibalism. When it comes to cannibalism, Bill uses the term “Culture is King” and how that can explain why some cultures consider eating their dead to be a more practical, reasonabl,e and respectful practice than, say, burying them. Cannibalism is something that has fascinated humans for centuries, and Bill is all about de-mystifying it, reiterating that it is all about the lens through which you look at certain behaviors. So put down your fork and have a listen to this fascinating talk that will give you loads of great conversation pieces for your next dinner party. Bon a petit!

  • Cannibalism as maternal care among amphibians.
  • Discover how cannibalism is a part of human history.

  • Diseases related to cannibalism in animals and humans.
  • Causes of scrapie, mad cow disease, and kuru.
  • Did Homosapiens and Neanderthals interbreed?

On today’s episode, we welcome Darryl Edwards, who may arguably be one of the most fun paleo authorities around. Darryl is a speaker, a coach, nutritionist, an author, and the founder of Fitness Explorer Training. You might recognize his Primal Play methodology or perhaps you’ve just seen him piggybacking his friends around at different events. He’s been published in magazines like ELLE, Men’s Fitness, Women’s Health, and he even has a feature in an international documentary called We Love Paleo. Darryl was also recently interviewed for a new book called Born Primal and his goal with Primal Play is to make movement and activity fun and effective. Making individuals healthier and fitter in a way that’s enjoyable, rather than tedious. Although it certainly can be, play doesn’t have to mean silly or superfluous. As you’ll learn in this episode, play can also be an intense workout and help you become faster, fitter and stronger. Darryl’s method is not about rules and incremental improvements, but about moving your body creatively and using your environment to do so. Today, Darryl gives us some tips on how we can start running like a bear, chasing cars, climbing trees and putting play into practice. He also talks about the state of paleo both in London and the U.S and the future of the movement. Take a listen!

Today on the show we welcome Caitlin Allday, the Founder of Paleo University as well as the Director of Content and the organization’s nutrition coach. She is a personal nutrition coaching consultant, she studied nutrition at NYU, completed her dietetic internship at Texas ANM, and she’s also registered dietician and nutritionist. On top of that, she’s also kind of like the Indiana Jones of Paleo! Caitlin has been playing around with the paleo model of evolutionary nutrition in her own life for about a decade, and after working with many clients, she soon realized that the main issue for many people is not the idea of what to eat, it’s knowing how to cook healthy, real food in a way that’s simple, convenient, efficient, and sustainable. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re trying to break long standing habits and form new ones. So Caitlin decided to create this resource, Paleo University, where all the recipes, tutorials, meal plans, grocery lists, and kitchen skill info, is in one place. Making it easier for you to join and contribute to a more accessible community surrounding healthy habits. Today, we talk with Caitlin about her fascinating nutrition journey and what Paleo University offers, and maybe get some tips on how to be healthier, up your kitchen skills, and be more proactive in the kitchen. Take a listen!

Today’s guest is Dr. Norman Robillard, a microbiologist and a researcher who spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry before founding the Digestive Health Institute. Dr. Norm’s goal is to develop holistic treatments for digestive illnesses based on understanding the underlying cause of the disease, rather than just dealing with the symptoms. He has created the Fast Tract Diet, which he’s going to talk about in our interview, and he also has two books out — The Fast Tract Digestion and The Fast Tract Heartburn. Today, we discuss the complexities of gut health; touching on some interesting points around symptoms, treatment, carbs, enzyme supplements, fasting, fats, and why you should chew your food. We also get into some of the not-so-pretty stuff like SIBO, mucus membranes, fecal bacteria, and gas. But it’s all for a good cause and makes for an insightful conversation to help us understand our gut and how we can heal it. Take a listen!

Today we welcome Brian Mackenzie, co-author, together with Dr. Andy Galpin, of a book called Unplugged: Evolve from Technology to Upgrade Your Fitness, Performance, & Consciousness. Brian is a world-renowned strength and conditioning expert and has worked with many high level winning CrossFit games athletes and Olympians. He cofounded XPT Life, a wellness conditioning and recovery program, with Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reese.

Brian’s book, Unplugged, provides a framework for using technology to meet your specific health and performance goals in a more mindful way, while also reconnecting with your own instincts and the world around you. In this episode, we learn more about Brian’s research into breathing and discuss technology addiction, diving with sharks, why technology is never going to replace your soul, and how to balance it back into our lives. Take a listen!

On today’s show we welcome Serenity Heegel and her partner Joe Carr, founders of Serenity Kids, a company that makes portable baby food that’s gluten free, Paleo, and non-GMO in flavors like organic beef with Kale and sweet potato, chicken with peas and carrots, and even uncured bacon with kale and butternut squash. They started Serenity Kids because they wanted only the best for their future baby. They partnered with small, American family farmers to create a delicious baby food that contains meat from animals raised humanely, on pasture, without hormones, antibiotics, or GMO feed. Pastured meats benefit the animal, the family farmers, and the planet. 

The best part is that they're better for your baby because they have a much higher Omega-3s and CLAs than grain-fed meats. At Serenity Kids they blend these meats with high-quality organic vegetables to create balanced, nourishing meals. In this episode Joe and Serenity talk about how they found Paleo, why their product is unique in the baby food market, and they give some tips on the ideal baby food that I certainly didn’t know. 

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How Serenity and Joe’s childhood health issues led them to starting Serenity Kids.
  • Identifying the gap in the market for paleo-friendly baby food.
  • Products launching on Serenity Kids.
  • Their relationship with the farms supplying the ingredients.
  • Breakdown of fats, proteins, carbs and calories in the foods.
  • Deciding what's nutritiously right to feed your baby.
  • The target audience Serenity Kids focuses on.
  • Challenging the cost of baby food.
  • Shelf life stable baby food.
  • Baby food for adults. Can we eat it?
  • We’re discussing future plans for Serenity Kids. 
  • Building good healthy habits at a young age.
  • And much more!

In today’s episode we welcome scientist and author Dr. Anthony G. Jay. Anthony is the President and CEO of AJ Consulting Company and recently wrote an eye opening book titled Estrogeneration: How Estrogenics are Making You Fat, Sick and Infertile. His book explains what estrogenics are, just how pervasive they are in our world today, and, despite the mounting evidence of their many negative effects, just how little is being done to minimize the use of unnecessary and often toxic ingredients in our food, skin care, plastics, and other daily products. 

Often scientific research can be inaccessible to the average human brain, but Anthony writes in such a personable and digestable way. Anthony exposes what is in our coffee, sunscreen, our salmon and critiques the shady politics of scientific research. Although the information in his book might absolutely horrify you, thankfully he offers plenty of actionable steps for us to easily minimize the amount of estrogenics in our daily life. If you are experiencing any type of health issue, suffering from depression, or even infertility — we would highly recommend you take a listen to this illuminating interview!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How Anthony combats the inaccessibility of science in Estrogenics.
  • What is an estrogenic?
  • The health issues tied to having too much estrogen.
  • If it’s natural can it be bad?
  • The link between lavender and man boobs.
  • Why you should avoid cosmetic parabens. 
  • Fat cell production and the estrogenic paradox.
  • Fat for your brain!
  • Money, politics and atrazine.
  • Mold, sunscreen, red dye and “fragrances”: How to avoid harmful estrogenics.
  • Why you might just be drinking birth control.
  • Phthalate is everywhere: Here’s how to void it.
  • The dirty secrets of science.
  • And much more!
