Longevity is Good; Quality is Better!

Statistically, we are living longer in the US today than ever before, but we are developing chronic diseases that significantly interfere with the quality of our golden years. Some of us are in distress and pain for decades before succumbing to these chronic diseases. This is not the way the human body was designed or […]

Have You Eaten the Feather-Shoe?

Asclepias syriaca (common milkweed) is one of the most valuable wild plants for those following a rewilding path.  It offers food, medicine, and relatively strong fibers for those that know how to identify and process this plant.  One of its indigenous names is wiphunakson (pronounced weep-hoo-NAHK-sun), which means “feather-shoe” in Passamaquoddy, a very fitting name for this species’ […]

Low Carb Diet Recommended for…

Yes, it’s come to that: every day brings  a news story about a condition for which a low-carbohydrate diet is the most healthy diet to follow. One such news article this week is really no surprise: low carbohydrate diets recommended for diabetics, types 1 and 2. The summary of the research on ScienceDaily.com goes into quite a […]

Iodine and the Hashimoto’s Controversy

Iodine is an essential nutrient needed for thyroid-hormone synthesis, so it’s understandable that these inferences would be drawn. There are people in the United States that suffer from iodine deficiency because of poor nutrition, and some might […]

Uncovering Adrenal Distress: How to Test for It

If you read my last two posts, The Three Problem Networks of Stress and What is Adrenal Burnout?, you will be starting to get familiar with the three main areas that create problems when we are under constant stress—adrenal distress, leaky gut, and carbohydrate metabolism. Today’s post continues from last week’s and dives into the details of how […]

It’s Just Food. Why is That So Surprising?

There is nothing tricky to the Paleo approach. I often hesitate to call it a diet as that can imply a direct endpoint as well as infer a host of other unattractive, negative associations such as deprivation, restriction for a while, followed by a frustrated binge and then a repeat of the cycle over and […]

What Triggers Autoimmune Disease?

As we age, one third of us will test positive for antibodies to our own tissues. Yet, only a few of us will develop full-blown autoimmune illness. Autoimmune illness is incredibly frustrating as it can drastically reduce a person’s quality of life. It also puts an enormous financial burden on our healthcare system. Because a […]
