Today on the show we welcome Diane Capaldi, AKA The Paleo Boss Lady. Diane is a Best of Paleo Magazine award winner for her blog and for her Taking It To The Streets Tour. If you haven’t already heard of her, you are in for a real treat today! Diane has an incredible story. She started a career building tech companies and was a millionaire by age 30. However, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the 80s and in 2001 she became legally disabled, eventually even unable to use her hands. Diane was rapidly running through her savings to try and save herself. Feeling hopeless and even suicidal, she decided to take matters into her own hands after an unexpected and illuminating stint at Burning Man. Diane ended up learning about Dr. Terry Wahls, started researching mitochondria and how to heal a toxic environment. To date, Diane has healed herself to the point where not only is she no longer disabled, she travels the country on her own, driving on her Taking It To The Streets Tour. Here she offers talks, cooking classes and community empowerment through the telling of her story. Diane works to encourage others to reach a level of consciousness, so that they can find their own best health and happiness. This is one of the most inspiring and illuminating episodes we’ve had to date, so take a listen!
