Renew Vitality with Paleo this Spring!

Why Paleo?

Before the dawn of the Agricultural Revolution, our ancestors lived a life virtually free of obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, Type 2 Diabetes and autoimmune disease among others. The secret to their health is believed to be their diet known as the Paleolithic diet.

Our upcoming 21 Day Spring Detox will be focused around the Paleo Diet. It is not just a diet but a way of life that revolves around eating whole foods full of veggies, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. By following the Paleo diet, common food allergens such as gluten, dairy and soy are naturally avoided along with processed foods and excess sugar known to compromise the gut and immune system. Avoiding these triggers, in most cases, allows the gut to heal re-establishing the gut barrier which allows the absorption of vitamins and minerals your body needs to function optimally.
