Praise and reviews for Nora Gedgaudas and her book, Primal Body Primal Mind
In my opinion, Primal Body, Primal Mind is the best book so far ever done on the Paleolithic diet.
Nora Gedgaudas has loaded Primal Body, Primal Mind with the information and resources essential for anyone who hopes to survive the 21st century in mental and physical health.
If you want to really know about how your brain and body work, read this book!
Nora Gedgaudas is a warrior fighting 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. This book is fabulous.
One of the best books I have read dealing with nutrition and lifestyle for optimal health.
There have been very few times in the last several years where I’ve read a book about nutrition that captured my interest and held it, Nora did. Her book should be required reading for everyone interested in proper dieting and nutrition. Not only is the book informative, but it’s written in a way to hold your interest and educate you without the normal pain of nutritional text. Her analysis and information regarding Paleo is a life changing event that will improve your health and change your lifestyle. A MUST read!!
These days, hormones are a hot topic. In primal body, primal mind, Gedgaudas focuses on those hormones that are commonly unbalanced and problematic to the American population, contributing to symptoms such as weight gain, low energy, poor mood, and even premature aging. In clear and simple terms Nora describes the root of these problems and outline solutions that are effective and easy to apply. This is the book you want to read.
I wish to compliment you on your well researched, excellent book Primal Body, Primal Mind. It is the first one in this field I have come across that discusses the work of both Dr. Mary Enig and the Weston A. Price Foundation and Dr. Gerald Pollack. Congratulations. I admire the work that you are doing in this field.
I see truth in Nora’s teaching over and over. I recommend her book and website to all my recovering autoimmune clients. The best testimonials I have for this work come from the ones who resisted the diet and tried other methods first. When they embrace this and begin healing, they kick themselves for wasting so much time. They are also walking advertisements for “the proof is in the primal pudding.”
I consider Nora’s work to be the definitive statement on the nutritional needs of the brain. It is required reading for all of my patients and for anyone with an interest in maintaining their own vitality throughout their life.
