The Paleo Summit - Day 7

The Paleo Summit is winding down. On this second to last day of the event there are three more educational and informative presentations.Today’s interviews start off with Dr. Cate Shanahan, author of the books “Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food” and “Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide to Healthy Eating“. Then we have Keith Norris, speaking about the connection between health and fitness. Lastly Sean interviews Dr. Daniel Chong about Earthing.


Dr. Cate Shanahan – The Paleo Diet vs. Top-Selling Drugs: Who Wins?

Dr. Cate compares the Paleo Diet to taking prescription drugs for treating three common medical conditions — osteoporosis, heart disease, and behavioral problems. The winner may surprise you.

  • Drugs as the lesser alternative to food
  • What’s wrong with just taking a pill?
  • What are the side-effects of osteoporosis drugs? (This is serious! OMG!)
  • Important information about vitamin D and calcium!
  • What about dairy?
  • What about cholesterol pills?
  • Brain development, prescription drugs and diet.

Wow! What you will learn in this presentation is quite shocking. It was to me! If you are taking or know anyone taking osteoporosis drugs you have to listen to this one. You will be blown away!


Keith Norris – Health versus Performance

Can you be fit and unhealthy? Muscular strength and cardiovascular endurance are not always signs of health. Keith Norris explains why achieving peak performance should not be at the expense of optimal health.

  • What does health versus performance mean?
  • Are health and performance synonymous?
  • Do you need time and skills to be healthy?
  • Is it unhealthy to train for performance?
  • What are the classic signs of over-training?
  • Epigenetics? How much impact does it have?

I am not athletic by any stretch of the imagination, but I found this interview to be fascinating. It all comes down to listening to our bodies. Highly recommended!


Dr. Daniel Chong – Beyond the Paleo Diet: Earthing as an Essential Nutrient

Paleolithic man walked barefoot and slept on the ground. However, in our modern insulated world, we seldom come in contact with the Earth’s surface. Does connecting to the Earth have a healing effect on the body? Dr. Chong explains the known and proven benefits of Earthing.

  • What is earthing or grounding?
  • How does earthing connect to the Paleo diet?
  • What happens when we earth?
  • What are some of the health benefits of earthing?
  • Why is earthing important in the modern world we live in?
  • What clinical successes has Dr. Chong seen?

This was a riveting interview. Who

knew that NOT touching the earth could be detrimental? This is a MUST listen to interview!

So, what has Sean scheduled for the final day of the Paleo Summit?
