I myself use the paleo diet quite strictly and it has helped me hugely. However, I am not a believer in a ‘one size fits all’ approach – experience shows clearly that different people need different diets.

Primal/Paleo living is how we were designed to live. It is so simple and obvious. Living it in our culture is the challenge as there are so many temptations, distractions and naysayers. Success is the strongest motivator, and we encourage everyone to give it a try for two to four weeks and see for themselves.

While I do not believe in a “one diet fits all” approach, I have seen many patients feel better by following ancestral and traditional principles of eating, sleeping, and moving. My work closely follows principles outlined in the GAPS diet, SCD diet, and the Weston A. Price Foundation…
