Paleo Magazine Radio

Today we are so happy to welcome posture specialist and Rolfer Sukie Baxter onto the show. Sukie discovered Rolfing while she was in college and talks about how it changed her life forever by helping her flexibility, posture, injuries, and the comfort level in her body. It even lifted her mood and anxiety levels. Sukie’s main message today is that when it comes to dealing with pain, posture, and proper body alignment, it's not about having a rigidly straight body every minute of the day. Rather, we should become more aware of bio-individuality, the fact that we’re dealing with different...

After dealing with ongoing sprinting injuries for many years, Steven’s friend recommended running barefoot.

What began as a community content platform based on Lillian’s ‘food is medicine’ background, turned into the wonder that Further Food is today. What makes...

In this episode we welcome Doug Smith, one of the co-founders of Paleo Pro. Doug is here to share his story and tell us all about his journey in health, entrepreneurship and how an accident in Kurdistan kickstarted the founding of this company and his most recent drive for physical and dietary consciousness. We hear about his earlier company, True Nutrition, how this paved the way for the supplement-based Paleo Pro and some of the founding principles of the company. Doug gives us a great look into his philosophy on supplements, health and diet in general, preferring a good healthy diet over massive amounts of supplements and making the argument for how supplements can help immensely in certain circumstances. We also discuss the usage of the term Paleo and how certain communities and terms can alienate customers through heavy usage of technical or specific jargon. Doug believes in a personalized and conscious approach to diet, something that he thinks is overlooked all too often. We get into the nitty gritty of Paleo Pro, some of the staple and bestselling products and also some new things to get excited about.
