My name is Adrienne and I’m so grateful to call Northern California my home. I’m a Southern California transplant and wouldn’t have it any other way. I have been working in the medical field in some form or fashion for the past 9 years. I have been a nurse for the past 5 years, and have done all sorts of nursing in my short time; from psychiatric, to emergent, to surgical, to dialysis and lots of other things in-between. You name it, I’ve probably done it. I discovered my passion for health and nutrition about 2 years ago after having my own series of ups and downs and mentioning it to a friend. She mentioned the Paleo diet and it peeked my interest. After doing some research and watching Tom Naughton’s movie Fat Head I was sold and jumped in with both feet!
My goal for this blog is to educate the masses about the ways of primal/real food health, while still benefiting and using the amazing progression of modern medicine. First and foremost, I’m not here to demonize modern medicine. It has truly changed the world for the better, but with that it has become grossly misused and abused by big pharma, big business and the shadiness that goes on in the political world. No one can refute the amazing achievements modern medicine has made; irradicating deadly diseases, bringing people back from the brink of death or curing cancers, but a primal diet and lifestyle can most certainly live harmoniously with modern medicine. Each one has it place and should be incorporated.
I’ll share with you all that I know, feel passionate about and see on a daily basis. New research, lifestyle hacks, things you can do at home to promote health and wellness and what some of the tough questions you should be asking at your next visit to the doctors. Again, thank you so much for joining me on this quest for truth and happiness…
