Hi! I’m Ania Wiesak. Nice to meet you!
I spent the majority of my life eating a notch above the standard American diet, treating my body poorly and otherwise not paying much attention to my health…
Until I got sick.
I learned quickly there are a lot of things mainstream medicine fails at. Vague symptoms of fatigue, joint pain, nerve pain, brain fog and blood markers clearly showing inflammation and autoimmune markers didn’t seem to faze the doctors. I wasn’t sick enough for them, but I was struggling to function. They weren’t going to fix me so I finally took my health into my own hands.
I had heard about the paleo diet but never looked into it or thought much of it. I finally read what it actually was (spoiler: it’s not just eating a lot of meat) and it clicked instantly. It just made sense. We’re just animals in nature put into a human zoo of modern living… of course we’re all sick. Genetically we’re not much different than our ancestors and our bodies can’t keep up. I grew up loving nature, leading backpacking trips, hiking whenever I could, thinking from a natural perspective resonated with me. I had “dieted” many times in my life, never more than a month or two, and here I am today eating healthy for 4+ years.
