In this episode Nick and Ben are talking with Nora Gedgaudas, a board-certified nutritional consultant and clinical neurofeedback specialist with more than 20-years of highly successful clinical experience.
She is also an internationally acclaimed ketogenic and ancestrally based nutrition specialist who has dedicated her career to addressing “diseases of civilization” – such as metabolic disorders, autoimmune-related issues, cancer, mood disorders, and cognitive decline – by striving to answer the following question: Do the keys to our healthier future live in our primal past—and how do we best apply this to the uniquely challenging world we live in today? Nora is the bestselling author of Primal Body, Primal Mind and Primal Fat Burner as well as Rethinking Fatigue (a cutting edge, revolutionary approach to adrenal health).
As the very first thought leader within the ancestral health community to write extensively about low-carbohydrate, higher-fat ketogenic approaches to health, Nora uniquely connects the dots between evolutionary biology, physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutritional science, autoimmunity/other immune dysfunction and chronic/degenerative disease, mind-body health, anti-aging and longevity. Nora believes that ancestral roots and modern science can effectively combine to create a more optimized, Primalgenic® nutritional approach to health and well-being designed to empower and restore the health of those living in our modern world.
Nora additionally serves on the board of the 67-year-old and much venerated Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, active in Indigenous outreach.
Nora lives in Portland, Oregon where she spends her time writing, researching and educating; as well as providing advanced nutritional consultation to practitioners and other clients; in addition to speaking internationally. She was recently featured in the popular documentary, ’The Magic Pill’, viewable on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
