Fundamental Health with Paul Saladino, MD

Nov 30, 2021

What is a species appropriate human diet?

In this week’s episode of The Fundamental Health podcast Nick Bare interviews me and we dive deep into many of my nutritional ideas that buck the norm….

Meat and organs are the best foods for humans on the planet…

They don’t cause cancer, and can be raised in ways that nourish the ecosystems and the environment…

Contrary to what we have been told, vegetables are not entirely benign and come with many plant defense chemicals….

For many people, eliminating vegetables (leaves, stems, roots, seeds) improves gut issues, mood, skin issues, sleep, and body composition…

The least toxic part of plants are fruit, the sugars found within these in a food matrix do not cause insulin resistance/ metabolic dysfunction…

Honey is sought around the world and has many benefits…

For those who tolerate dairy, raw milk and cheese are also incredibly nutritious…

Organs, meat, fruit, honey- this is a #carnivoreish diet aka an #animalbased diet.
