If you really want to know why the Paleo lifestyle works so well in combating chronic disease, reversing the aging process, and turning everyday people into fat burning beasts, you'll inevitably encounter a concept called Evolutionary Mismatch. An evolutionary mismatch occurs when our body, a collection of trillions of cells beautifully programmed by millions of years of evolution, encounters something completely unexpected and descends into chaos. In the past evolutionary mismatches arose from natural events, cataclysms like super volcanoes and asteroid impacts, as well as cyclical climate changes, but these mismatches ultimately spurned new evolutions and adaptations. Unfortunately for us modern humans, the radical technological and societal changes that we have initiated have transformed our world, and have changed so many things so quickly that our bodies just can't keep up, and evolutionary mismatches abound.
Eating processed food like substances instead of whole foods is a mismatch. Sitting down all day staring at a computer screen instead of experiencing dynamic movement within mother nature is a mismatch. Replacing our intimate tribal relationships of community and family with text messages is an evolutionary mismatch, and as the process of evolution and natural selection runs its course, millions of us suffer and die from chronic disease and millions more live in states of dis-health. But all hope is not lost Paleo Nation, as someone listening to this podcast and living the Paleo lifestyle, you are part of the solution, and now more than ever, there are resources at your disposal that can help you manage the evolutionary mismatches in your life.
There are books, blogs, podcasts, and even events dedicated to the practice of ancestral health. Today we'll be talking to two proponents to the ancestral health model. J. Brett Smith and Aaron Blaisdell. Both of these guys are so passionate about the subject that they've dedicated countless hours towards organizing one of the premier Paleo events of the year. The Ancestral Health Symposium.
