This week on SOTT Talk Radio we’ll be talking to nutritional therapist, speaker and educator Nora Gedgaudas. Widely recognized as an expert on the ‘Paleo Diet’, Nora maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon as both a Board-Certified nutritional consultant and a Board-Certified clinical Neurofeedback Specialist.
Nora is also the author of the best-seller Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life, a book that is changing the way people view their diet and health.
Examining the healthy lives of our pre-agricultural Paleolithic ancestors and contrasting it with the marked decline humanity has undergone in the Agricultural Age, up to and including today’s epidemic ‘diseases of civilization’, Nora’s book shows how our modern grain- and carbohydrate-heavy low-fat diets are a far cry from the high-fat, moderate-protein hunter-gatherer diets we are genetically programmed for.
Applying the latest scientific discoveries to the basic hunter-gatherer diet forged in the last Ice Age, Nora’s message is that a real alternative is available: a holistic, ‘paleo’ lifestyle that is helping thousands of people to break the negative feedback loop of poor diet and poor health.
