Growing up, Ben Phelps turned to food to deal with stress, depression, and anxiety. He wanted to get healthy for his family and their future, but he lacked confidence because all of his previous efforts to lose weight resulted in failure. 
 
When Ben discovered the book The Primal Blueprint however, his hope returned as he saw the simple, practical, and primal approach as something he could literally and figuratively sink his teeth into.
 
Eating delicious primal foods and working out with a movement-centered approach, Ben lost over 120 pounds and is now following his dream of competing in mixed martial arts and is even studying to be a personal trainer.

To restore our health, strength and vitality by providing history's healthiest whole food nutrients to the modern world.

We usually start this show talking about our guests, but before we do that, Tony has a story to share, about himself, that you might not know.

It's a story that starts almost twenty years ago, back to the summer of 1998, the summer before Tony started his freshman year of high school. It was only a few weeks before the start of the school year, and, as is often the case, he had to get a physical before he could complete the enrollment process.

"During the exam, the doctor noticed a lump on my throat and after further investigation, it was determined that I had a potentially cancerous cyst on my thyroid gland. I was only 14 at the time, so I really had no idea what was going on but nevertheless it was decided between my doctor and parents that a partial thyroidectomy to remove the half of my thyroid gland that had the cyst on it, was the ideal course of treatment. I don't remember being scared as much as I felt like I was on a ride that I had no control over. The train had left the station and I was a passenger who had no choice but to go on to the next stop.

I remember going into the hospital and being prepped for surgery, getting the anesthesia, and then everything going black. The next thing I knew I was awake, but I couldn't lift my head and everything above my shoulders was in pain. What felt like seconds to me was actually more than five hours, during which the doctors had my throat completely opened up while they debated what to do.

When they initially opened me up, they sampled a piece of the cyst, but it didn't check out with any known cancers. This uncertainty led to fear and this fear led to them deciding that instead of removing half my thyroid gland, they would remove the whole thing. As lab tests would later prove, I did not in fact have cancer, but once your thyroid gland is gone, it doesn't come back and from that moment on my life was dependent on thyroid replacement medication.

The medication I was given is one of the most commonly prescribed medications in America, it goes by the generic name levothyroxine, or the brand name Synthroid. Every six months I would get blood tests, visit my endocrinologist, and get my prescription renewed. They always tested for TSH, thyroid stimulating hormone, a signaling hormone produced by the pituitary gland that supposedly indicates whether you have too little, too much, or just the right amount of thyroid hormone in your body.

As it was, my TSH levels were on a perpetual roller coaster, and my Synthroid dosage was constantly being changed. I had bags under my eyes, would fall asleep in the middle of the day, and never felt really energetic, but my TSH levels were good and so I soldiered on.

I started working out, began to eat healthy, got into the fitness business, and began my career, always assuming that everyone felt the way that I did. But, when I cured my chronic knee pain with barefoot running and resolved years of binge eating with a paleo diet I started to question the conventional wisdom. I started to wonder what was really going on with my thyroid and began to investigate whether or not synthroid was the best way to treat it.

As I looked deeper into the issue, I discovered that there were entire websites, books, and communities of people online who had many of the issues I did. I learned that natural thyroid replacement made from desiccated pig thyroids used to be the gold standard, but when synthetic thyroid, ie synthroid, was discovered and marketed, the pharmaceutical company that made synthroid went on a mission to discredit natural thyroid replacement, convincing doctors that it was unreliable, inconsistent, and unsafe.

With this knowledge, I demanded that my doctor switch me to a modern natural thyroid replacement called Armour thyroid. He wasn't an endocrinologist and didn't really seem to care too much about what I did, so he wrote me the prescription without resistance and I got my natural thryoid hormone.

On Armour thyroid I began to come back to life again. The bags under my eyes began to go away, the mid afternoon crashes disappeared, and I realized that I didn't have to do cardio for hours a day to maintain my weight. 

The realization slowly began to creep into my brain that for all those years I had been a victim and didn't even know it. I wasn't a victim of any single person, doctor, or drug, I was the victim of an entire system that puts profits before people. That's why I was so excited to meet Elle Russ."

Elle found out who Tony was through his work with Paleo Magazine and she reached out to tell us about a book she was working on that dove into the subject of thryoid health, but from a Paleo perspective. She is a thyroid health advocate who had herself suffered from years of medical mismanagement and she too had to learn the hard way.

We had a great conversation about the proper ways to dose natural thryoid hormone the nuances of t3 and t4, and how TSH alone is not a good indicator of thryoid function. We didn't record this conversation, but when Elle's book, the Paleo Thyroid Solution, was finished, we invited her to come on to Paleo Magazine Radio to share her story with you. Little did we realize that she was about to change Tony’s life in a very significant way, but we’ll let you listen to find out how.

We first saw Jamie Lynn Brazie on Instagram. At the time, Tony was editing Paleo Fitness Magazine (all 6 issues are now available in an ebook compendium btw) and we were promoting the #paleofitnessarmy hashtag. We occasionally searched the hashtag to see what people were posting and on this particular day one of Jamie's photos came up.

She was sitting on the beach in the lotus position, and as a lifelong Floridian, Tony immediately recognized the scenery. They both hailed from a similar part of the state, so when it came time to scout for a cover model for our fourth issue, Tony thought it would be cool to feature a local girl.

Jamie and her husband are now living out in the Pacific Northwest, but she is still bringing that Florida sunshine and sharing the message of health out west.

After the Ancestral Health Symposium ended, one of the show organizers, J. Brett Smith approached us and said he had organized an impromptu meeting outside the conference hall and he wanted us to bring the audio recorder because what was about to be said was going to rock the Paleo world. 

Brett assured us that the assembled group represented a rare gathering of thinkers on the subject of plants. Despite the conventional wisdom that we need to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, this group's controversial position is that fruit's and vegetables are overrated, unnecessary, and maybe even toxic!

According to the eclectic group of PhDs, authors, self-experimenters, and more, plants have been engaging in chemical warfare, which of course sounds like dirty tactics until you consider that they lack the ability to scurry away or fight back with tooth and claw like animals do. So, without these things they've had to develop an entire arsenal of insidious chemicals to ward off predators like us.

We've never really questioned the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables but the evidence presented by this panel was compelling and certainly dims the health halo surrounding plant based diets.

Today we're continuing our coverage of the 2016 Ancestral Health Symposium with a conversation with Chris Masterjohn of the Daily Lipid, Darryl Edwards, the Fitness Explorer, and Dr. Terry Wahls, creator of the Wahls protocol.

This interview was originally featured as a Facebook live video on the Ancestral Health Foundation's Facebook page, but we wanted to make sure that you, our dedicated PMR audience, got a chance to listen in as well. And since we weren't about to cut any of these interviewees off, today's show is a bit longer than a typical Paleo Radio Bite, so we'll get right to the chase.

It's not often you get three heavy hitters like this all in one show, and I think you're going to learn a lot from hearing what they have to say. Enjoy.

In our conversation we cover a broad range of questions, like:

  • What is Ancestral health?
  • What's the best dietary sources of vitamin K?
  • And whether or not there are any studies to back up our intuitions about organic produce and grass fed meat.

 Last week on the podcast you heard Tony's 2016 Ancestral Health Symposium talk, "Get Up Stand Up: A brief history of sedentarism and why movement is good medicine," and if you didn't, we encourage you to go back and check it out.

If you did, we hope it motivated you to get up out of your chair, to move around, and to start getting healthier by giving your body more of the movement nutrients that it needs. But, as passionate as we are about exercise, we know that it is only one piece of the Paleo, Ancestral health puzzle.

That's why we were so pleased to be able to attend AHS this year and to see such diversity in the talks and poster presentations which covered everything from mind-controlling microbes to adrenal fatigue, and everything in between. 

We left the conference feeling informed and inspired, but also a little sad because coming home meant leaving the amazing AHS tribe of attendees, presenters, vendors, and volunteers behind. 

We really can't think of a better group of people to spend a weekend with and think it's the people that really make these events so special. And to celebrate those people, we made sure to record conversations with as many of them as we could.

On Today's episode of Paleo Magazine Radio:

  • We share an uber ride from Denver International Airport into Boulder with AHS co-founder Aaron Blaisdell.
  • We dive deep into conversations on the show floor.
  • We stop by the movement sessions
  • We even take some time to appreciate the beautiful scenery in Boulder, Colorado.

Tony just got back from the 2016 Ancestral Health Society symposium and has some great audio for you. 

During the conference, which was held on the beautiful, Rocky Mountain surrounded, University of Colorado Boulder Campus, Tony recorded a Facebook Live conversation with Dr. Terry Wahls, Chris Masterjohn, and Darryl Edwards. He got a one on one interview with the Paleo Mom Dr. Sarah Ballantyne that reveals her latest fitness hack and also listened in as a group of Plant experts called into question one of the bedrock beliefs of Paleo. And, throughout the conference, captured numerous mini-interviews with a diversity of entrepreneurs, academics, and medical specialists that will give you a chance to really experience what it's like at AHS. 

Getting all this audio together is going to require a little bit of editing, so we're going to kick things off with Tony's Ancestral Health Symposium presentation "Get Up, Stand Up: A Brief History of Sedentarism and Why Movement is Good Medicine."

In "Get Up, Stand Up", Tony shares his own personal experience with chronic low back pain, and how it opened his eyes to the dangers of sitting down. If you are interested in finding out the relationship between our movement environment and chronic disease, when chairs were invented, and how sitting might not be the new smoking, but it might be the new McDonald's, stand up, or even better, walk, and give it a listen.

Harrison Levy was a fan of the Paleo lifestyle, and ate, moved, and lived as closely as he could to Paleo principles. However, there was one area of his life that avoided the ancestral health approach.

He was an avid exerciser and would routinely take pre-workout supplements prior to lifting weights. The boost of energy was welcome, but the artificial colors, flavors, and ingredients were not. In a fit of inspiration, Harrison decided that he could do it better, and went to work creating his own, all-natural, paleo friendly pre-workout.

On today's Paleo Radio bite, we talk to Harrison about this initial moment of inspiration, what his original recipe looked like, and how he grew his company with Instagram.

OUR MISSION
To restore our health, strength and vitality by providing history's healthiest whole food nutrients to the modern world.

AncientNutrition.com


Most of us spend our days in front of computers, on the phone, or in our cars, working, stressing, succeeding, and striving all while remaining seated and stationary.

This wouldn't be a problem if our ancestors were a sedentary species like pine trees, but unfortunately for us, our lineage comes from a dynamic group of animals who made their way through the world by employing a broad scope of movement patterns. Squatting, lunging, gripping, hanging, pressing, pulling, twisting, and sprinting, we are meant to be on the move and our biological machinery demands more than just a daily dose of gym time. To truly thrive, we need to reintroduce movement into our daily lives.

Today's show is part one of a two part series dedicated to the idea that movement is more than just exercise and features a conversation with world renowned movement expert Dr. Kelly Starrett.

Best known for his hit Mobility WOD YouTube channel and New York Times best-selling book "Becoming a Supple Leopard", Dr. Starrett has dedicated his life to fixing broken bodies.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

In our conversation we discuss:

  • What it was like to grow up in a mountain town outside of Munich.
  • The "aha" moment of satori he experienced while surfing.
  • His early influences and mentors in the world of CrossFit and Weightlifting.
  • What he learned by studying the movement traditions of martial arts, yoga, and gymnastics.
  • Why we need to stop "fitnessing".
  • How to cultivate physical competence in kids.
  • The problems with physical education and how to fix them.
  • What he thinks about the statement "sitting is the new smoking".
  • How to sit correctly.
  • Transitioning to a standing workstation.
  • How you can join the Mobility WOD movement.

Stephanie Dodier spent fifteen years climbing the corporate ladder and while she projected an image of success on the outside, on the inside, trouble was brewing.

One day, while Stephanie was giving a presentation, an alarming sensation came over her, her heart raced, she felt lightheaded, and she thought she was having a heart attack. Her co-workers rushed her to the hospital and after being thoroughly examined, the prognosis was that she had experienced a panic attack brought on by stress. Instead of talking to her about her diet and lifestyle however, the doctor simply wrote a prescription for anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications and sent her on her way. 

Intuitively, Stephanie knew that this was the wrong approach and in that moment decided to take a different path. The journey that she began on that fateful day has not only resulted in health, it has also reinvigorated Stephanie's spirit, her sense of connection, and ignited her purpose.

On today's show, she tells her story and shares the lessons she learned along the way.

When we found out that we'd be talking to Brad Kearns, former pro triathlete, host of the Primal Endurance Podcast, and co-author of Mark Sisson's new book Primal Endurance, we thought it would be a straightforward conversation about athletic performance, the mechanics of the cardiorespiratory system, and why chronic cardio is a bad idea.

The conversation we actually had was much different, and much more interesting in my opinion, covering a much broader scope of subjects and diving deep into the areas of mindset, intuition, and awareness.

Brad has been working alongside Mark Sisson for many years, but he has his own unique and valuable voice within the Paleo/Primal space. His experience as a professional athlete, a parent, and educator have given him valuable insights into his own mind, and by extension, the human condition as a whole. We really enjoyed this interview and think you will too.

Click Here for the full transcript.

On today's show, we discuss:

  • The art of deciphering media messages about fitness.
  • What we can, and can't learn from gurus.
  • Why success by conventional standards doesn't guarantee happiness.
  • The importance of balance and intuition.
  • Why improving your endurance doesn't necessarily require struggle and suffering.
  • The fat burning benefits of training below your anaerobic threshold.
  • How to do CrossFit right.
  • When you should stop or even skip a workout.

Every once in awhile you come across someone who just has "it", that difficult to quantify quality of energy, enthusiasm, confidence, and presence that makes other people pay attention and take notice.

While at Paleo f(x) this past year we met someone who has "it", teenage Paleo blogger Sadie Radinsky.

She wowed Paleo f(x) founder Michelle Norris, chatted up Robb Wolf, and definitely made a mark on us as well. You might remember her from our 2016 Paleo f(x) wrap up episode, but we wanted to bring her back to tell a little more about her story, her Paleo mission, and to share with you some of the magic that she brings to this world.

So without further ado, Sadie Radinsky of Goodies Against the Grain.

One of Tony's first assignments for Paleo Magazine was to cover the original Paleo f(x) conference and the first person he met in Austin was a fellow Paleo fan named Charissa Talbot.

At the time, Charissa had just taken a job working as a virtual assistant for Diane Sanfilippo, whose Balance Bites blog and 21 Day Sugar Detox program had just started to become a little too much for her to handle on her own.

They became fast friends and spent much of that weekend fanboying and fangirling over the talks, presentations, workshops, and experiences that defined the original Paleo f(x) event.

Fast forward several years later and Tony's still working for Paleo Magazine and Charissa too is still heavily involved in the Paleo community.

Her current role as COO for ThePaleoMom.com involves overseeing an entire team of coaches, writers, editors, and social media specialists. She's Dr. Sarah Ballantyne's right hand woman, working behind the scenes to ensure that all the book projects, blog posts, programs, and podcasts featured on ThePaleoMom.com arrive on time, in shape, and ready to rock.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to interview our friend Charissa and to share her story with all of you.

Click Here for the full transcript.

On today's show, we discuss:

  • Her pre-paleo diet of bagels, cream cheese, beer, and cigarettes.
  • How high intensity exercise helped her cope with a long distance relationship and the death of her brother.
  • The Balanced Bites seminar that changed her life and led to her first job in Paleo.

As you all must know, the past few weeks have been tragic, so much so that the word tragic seems insufficient.

When we check the Facebook news feed we're confronted with such unbelievable violence. Violence against gay nightclub goers, violence against African Americans, violence against police, and we feel compelled to address this rift in our collective consciousness as ignoring it and pretending it doesn't exist or didn't happen seems disrespectful to the deceased, their families, and to society at large.

We realize that this is a podcast largely focused on health, exercise, entrepreneurship, and food, but none of these things exist in a vacuum.

We also realize that it can be tempting to hide ourselves from the world by focusing on the minutia of our lives, whether we drank enough bone broth, ate enough kale, or made ourselves sweat. These things are important, personal health is important, but we are all part of a tribe and right now our tribe is not well.

We don't pretend to have any solutions but do know that as humans we are capable of doing good just as much as we are capable of committing acts of evil and we're certain that there is more good in this world than not.

We think our own words are exhausted at this point, so we're going to play something that feels particularly relevant to the moment we are in today.

What you're about to hear is a speech Robert F. Kennedy gave on April 4, 1968 in Indianapolis Indiana. At the time, he was running for the Democratic presidential nomination and while one his way to what was supposed to be a typical campaign rally, he was given the news that Martin Luther King had been shot and killed.

This was before 24 hour cable news and before the internet, so many of the people assembled did not know what had happened to Dr. King. Kennedy's aides, local officials, and law enforcement were concerned about security and the potential for a riot, but he decided to speak anyway and gave the speech from a podium mounted on the back of a flatbed truck.

When news of Dr. King's death broke, there were riots in over 100 US cities including New York, Chicago, Boston, Detroit, and Baltimore, but Indianapolis was not one of them and it is thought that the speech given by Robert Kennedy was one reason why the city, unlike so many others, remained calm in the aftermath of Dr. King's assassination.

63 days after giving this speech Robert Kennedy was also shot and killed, but his words and the impact that they had on the people who heard them lived on.

Our hope in sharing this speech with you today is that Robert Kennedy's words will live in you as well and that in the face of so much tragedy, evil, and despair, you will choose love, hope, and understanding.

OPTIMAL NUTRITION WITHOUT COMPROMISE

So you’ve read the “The Paleo Diet," "The Primal Blueprint," and “The Paleo Solution” and are ready to dive headfirst into the Paleo lifestyle. You hop in your car, head to the local supermarket, and start looking for Paleo-friendly foods.

If you’re like most people, somewhere between the sugar-infused tomato sauces, CAFO meat, and wheat gluten everything, you throw your hands up in frustration, realizing that while the Paleo concept is simple, shopping Paleo isn’t. Luckily however, you’re not alone, and if there is a positive side to frustration, it’s that it’s a great stimulus for invention.

Jen Reissman, co-founder of OneStopPaleoShop.com, remembers her Paleo-shopping frustration well. She and her co-founder Devon would visit upwards of seven different stores to get everything they needed, and it was after one particularly trying day of shopping that Jen and Devon had an idea. They decided that they would create a website that brought together all sorts of Paleo-friendly products under one roof, a one stop paleo shop if you will, which they also realized was a great name for their business, and so the website onestoppaleoshop.com was born.

Click Here for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Turning her mom's mail order supplement company into an online Paleo superstore.
  • How they decided on their original inventory of products.
  • How they created buzz for their new business with a Paleo Magazine ad.
  • Her favorite Paleo staples.
  • The Paleo treat that her French bulldogs demand each and every day.
  • Her favorite customer testimonials.
  • What the future has in store for their store.

The 2016 Summer Olympics will be held next month in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, and along with the gymnastics, track and field, soccer, boxing, and other sports, there's weightlifting.

But unlike the weightlifting most of us are familiar with, Olympic weightlifting doesn't involve targeting specific muscle groups. There is no biceps curl, bench press, or dip, no leg press, hamstring curl, or seated row.

In Olympic weightlifting there are two moves; the clean and jerk and the snatch, that's it, but despite their superficial simplicity, the clean and jerk and snatch require thousands of hours of practice and the patience of a zen monk to master.

On today's show, Stephanie Gaudreau, Paleo Magazine Radio regular and host of Harder to Kill, breaks down the details of Olympic lifting. Why it is her chosen sport, and why the pursuit of Olympic Lifting mastery is worth it's weight in gold medals even if you're not planning on going to the Olympics.

This week, we had originally planned on featuring an interview with Jen Reissman of One Stop Paleo shop, but we couldn't wait to share what we recorded a couple days ago. It's a conversation with Dr. Andy Galpin, a professor at the Center for Sport Performance at California State University and Director of their Biochemistry and Molecular Exercise Physiology Laboratory.

We met at Paleof(x) while moderating a panel called "Swole by Science". He was a featured panelists that struck us by his ability to take complex physiological processes, like how muscle contractions occur thanks to millions of tiny protein filaments called actin and myosin, and to break them down into an understandable and relatable form.

The plan going into this interview was to get Dr. Andy to reiterate the points he made during the panel discussion, but what we didn't expect is to get into some seriously awesome side conversations.

Click Here for the full transcript

On today's show we discuss:

  • The nature of academia.
  • Why mediocre athletes make great researchers and what it's like to really train superstar pro athletes.
  • What his father and grandfather taught him about extreme responsibility.
  • How to cut through the "smoke and mirrors" of health marketing.
  • The difference between knowledge and wisdom.
  • How he went from being a Paleof(x) skeptic to a full on fan.
  • And, of course, how muscles work, what they're made of, and how to make them bigger.

On last week's episode of Paleo Magazine Radio, we had a great conversation with professional obstacle course racer Hunter McIntyre. We dove deep into Hunter's past and how he overcame difficulties with school and societal expectations to become who he is today. 
 
It was a great conversation full of incredible stories as well as practical takeaways for crushing obstacle course races as well as the hurdles life itself throws your way.
 
At the end of the episode, we mentioned that we would be previewing an episode of Hunter's podcast, the Obstacle Dominator show that he co-hosts with Paleo Magazine Radio alum Ben Greenfield, so that's what you'll be hearing today.
 
The episode you'll be listening to features Hunter and Professional Racing Coach Dennis Welch.
 
They discuss the evolution of Obstacle Racing and how it is now attracting serious athletes and professionals from other sporting domains like Randy Moss and Lance Armstrong, Coach Dennis' favorite training implements and how he cultivates future Hunter McIntyre's by working with youth athletes.

At some point in human history, physical movement became a luxury and gyms opened up to serve exercise to the masses. As our lifestyles got worse, so did our health, and as statistics for obesity rose, some of us continued to dive into the growing exercise industry.
 
Host Tony Federico has been in the fitness industry for ten years and when not podcasting, is the director of a fitness center in Jacksonville Florida serving approximately 500 members and offering a variety of services such as group exercise classes, personal training, massage, free weights, and cardio training equipment. In the past, he coached crossfit and thinks a large part of the crossfit movement is a protest of the traditional fitness model, no pun intended. But going beyond crossfit, there seems to be a growing number of people interested in even more extreme departures from the fitness norm.
 
Obstacle racing, mud running and super spartan events range in size and scope but all advertise how completely dirty you will be when you finish. Far from our sanitary "regular" lives, mud running is a wild romp through physical, mental, and spiritual hurdles.  It totally sucks, but that's the point. Obstacle races take us out of our comfort zone and we pay good money for it. For some participants, this is an occasional catharsis, but for others, it's something more.
 
Today's guest, Hunter McIntyre, is widely considered to be one of the best obstacle course racers in the world. Sponsored by the Spartan Race organization and Reebok, he travels around the world, putting on a display of incredible attitude, confidence, and primal energy wherever races.

On today's show we discuss:

  • Growing up as a wild child, dropping out of college, and training as a lumberjack.
  • Learning about nutrition from Tim Ferris' book the 4-hr body.
  • How he ran his first spartan race, slightly buzzed, in his underwear, and still finished in the top 10 in a field of 8,000.
  • What it took to become a professional obstacle course racer.
  • How he trains to be the best in the world.
  • Why he's now spending his time cross-country skiing across Greenland and running across the Moab desert.

One of the very specific benefits of being Paleo podcasters is that we occasionally receive packages of meat in the mail. For some, this might seem odd, but for us it's about as exciting as christmas day. We tear into the cardboard and foam packaging anticipating what sort of meaty delights are hidden inside and given that Paleo is all about quality grass-fed, sustainably sourced, humanely raised, heritage breed meats we're rarely disappointed but sometimes, there's that rare occasion where we encounter a game changer.

This is what happened after we got a package from The Piggery, a pastured pork collective based out of Ithaca, New York. Their rosemary thyme rubbed pork chops were a revelation, pork unlike any we've ever experienced, more like beef or steak than pork, and after that first bite we had to know how they did it, and after this episode of Paleo Radio bites, you will too.

On today's bite we chat with Piggery owner Brad Marshall who shares some of his secrets to making magical pork products.

When we think of physicians we typically think of doctors in white coats and when we think of medicine, we typically think of prescription pharmaceuticals. 

But this particular form of healthcare, one which predominates in contemporary Western culture, is actually a relatively new phenomenon which only took shape in the past 100 or so years. So before the white coats and before the drugs what did people do when they got sick?

Using the plants, animals, and minerals around them, ancient peoples were remarkably adept at maintaining health and often incorporated physical, mental, and spiritual practices into a holistic way of life. One example of a traditional healthcare system, and one which predates our western medical model by thousands of years, is ayurveda.

Developed by vedic culture of ancient India, Ayurveda, translates literally as "the wisdom of life".  In Ayurveda, health is a vital, energetic, and balanced state of being, rather than just the absence of disease, and ayurvedic practitioners use a variety of diagnostic methods to customize health prescriptions for each patient's individual needs.

Ayurvedic teachings were originally passed from one practitioner to another by apprenticeships and oral traditions, but they were eventually codified around 300 BC in a sacred text known as the Rig Veda.Since then, knowledge of Ayurveda has spawned thousands of books, health retreats, blogs, and beyond. Thanks in large part to it's effectiveness, this ancient health practice has found a home in the modern age.

On today's show, we're joined by Ayurveda expert, Dr. Akil Palanisamy, who is also a Harvard trained physician. His new book, "The Paleovedic Diet", combines the best of Western medicine, ayurveda, and paleo into a complete program that will help readers to burn fat, increase energy, and reverse disease.

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

On today's show we discuss:

  • The three primary body types or doshas of Ayurvedic medicine.
  • How knowing your specific dosha and it's tendencies can help you optimize your diet and exercise routine.
  • Why he thinks that functional medicine is shifting the balance of healthcare back to prevention.
  • The cutting edge benefits of traditional herbs and spices like turmeric, ginger, clove, and black pepper.
  • Actual case studies where his clients have healed chronic health conditions by incorporating Paleovedic principles.

In April 2015 we interviewed Nick Mares, an 18 year old entrepreneur who, along with his brother Justin, had just launched a food startup called Bone Broth's Co. When we last talked to Nick, the company had just secured a contract with a co-packer who could produce bone broth to their exacting standards. It had been a long process, with many ups and downs, and if you want to listen to this episode first, check out Paleo Magazine Radio Episode 81, titled Startup Paleo. 
 
Today we're checking in with Nick to see how far the company has come in the past year. We think you're going to find that it's grown exponentially.

Every four years, the elite athletes from all across the globe gather to compete in the Olympic games. Those 17 days are filled with triumph, tragedy, heartbreak, and exaltation. Some rise, some fall, and all of us are entranced.

Most of us watch the spectacle with a sense of awe, a feeling that we are witnessing feats that are incredible, impossible for mere mortals, but for some, watching the Olympics ignites a deep hunger, a drive, and a purpose.

For every Olympian that competes in the games, there are hundreds, thousands, perhaps even millions more who dedicate themselves each and every day to the goal of competing, of winning, of proving themselves to the world and becoming an Olympic athlete.

Today's guest, Joseph Seaman is one of those hopefuls. Born in the UK, Joe now lives in Austin Texas where he trains and competes in the sport of rowing.

From afar, rowing is a graceful endeavor, with streamlined boats gliding across the water, but if you zoom in closer, you'll see that it is a brutal sport that pushes the body and mind to it's limits.

Click Here for the full transcript

On today's show we discuss:

  • How he was introduced to the sport.
  • What it's like to work a 9 to 5 job while training for the Olympics.
  • The key elements of rowing technique.
  • How eating Paleo has helped fuel his athletic performance.
  • Why rowing is the perfect high-intensity exercise.
  • How you can implement rowing into your routine.

Diana has also been working diligently for the past few years to complete her education as a Registered Dietitian.

Diana persevered through a slew of challenging situations while going through this process, but ultimately prevailed and is now officially a Paleo RD.

On today's show, Diana tells the story of how she made it happen, which Paleo experts encouraged her along the way, and how she plans to change the nutritional world from the inside out.
