Fundamental Health with Paul Saladino, MD

Feb 22, 2021

I’m back from Africa - what a trip it was! 

I got to spend multiple days hunting, eating, living, dancing, and adventuring with the Hadza of Tanzania…

In this week’s podcast episode (Fundamental Health, available at, Apple podcasts, and YouTube), @dranthonygustin and I sat down to answer many of your questions about our trip and share some of our biggest takeaways… 

We discuss how the Hadza eat, what they don’t eat, how healthy they are, how happy they are, salt?, hunting, eating baboon, and a ton more…

I talked about my takeaways from this trip in this week's newsletter - If you didn't get it, you’re missing out! Join the tribe at!
