Sharpen your pencils and get ready to learn. The first ever Paleo Summit is taking place February 26 – March 3. What is the Paleo Summit? It is a series of presentations given on-line over the course of several days. Presented by Sean Croxton of Undergroundwellness.com, this summit is filled with presentations by some of the best known Paleo diet experts.
The theme of this years summit (I am making a broad assumption that there will more in the future) is:
Is the Paleo Diet the Answer?
Or is it Just Another Fad?
24 researchers, doctors, and diet experts turn back the clock to unearth ancestral solutions for our modern health scourge. The answers are ancient history…but certainly not extinct.

ancestral health will be:
