for Total Health and a Longer Life with author Nora T. Gedgaudas, CNS, CNT. " Nora is a warrior for our collective health.  For 2.6 million years humans knew what to eat: animal fat and protein.  On that diet, we grew tall, strong, and disease free.  That primal pattern is still there, laid down like a Labyrinth circling out of our DNA, and Nora is ready to guide us." by Lierre Keith Author of The Vegetarian Myth... Examining the healthy lives of our pre-agricultural Paleolithic ancestors and the marked decline in stature, bone density and dental health as well as increase in birth defects, malnutrition, and disease following the implementation of the agricultural lifestyle, Nora shows how 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, therefore leading to lifelong weight gain, cravings, mood disorders, cognitive problems and "diseases of civilization" such as cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance), heart disease & mental illness.

Applying modern discoveries to basic hunter-gatherer diet, she culls from vast research in evolutionary physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, and chronic and degenerative disease to unveil a holistic lifestyle for true mind body health and longevity. Revealing the primal origins and physiological basis for a highfat, moderate protein, starch free diet and the importance of adequate omega3 intake critical to our brain and nervous system, but sorely lacking in peole's diets. She explains the nutritional problems of grains, gluten, soy, dairy, starchy vegies which natural fats promote health and which (such as canola oil) harm it. The crucial role of Vit D in cancer and disease prevention; importance of saturated fat and cholesterol and how diet affects mental health, memory, cognitive function, hormonal balance. www.HealingArtsPress.com
