Primal Docs was created in 2011 by Chris Armstrong. Chris was also responsible for the creation of the Celiac Handbook Website back in 2004 and is a tireless advocate for any and all things gluten-free (and grain-free).
As a natural progression of his gluten-free lifestyle, he finally decided to take the plunge into a primal/paleo lifestyle and cut out all grains, legumes, refined sugar, and processed seed oils. Both the physical and emotional benefits of this way of life were noticeable very quickly and any desire to go back to his old way of life were eliminated almost immediately.
