At first glance, the concepts behind ‘paleo’ and ‘Ayurveda’ might seem completely at odds. Ayurveda is all about eating vegan and ‘typing’ and paleo is all about dogma and eating meat, right?

Not according to, Dr. Akil Palanisamy, a Harvard trained physician and author of the new book ‘The Paleovedic Diet’, one that draws from the strengths of each to create something unique. By personalizing paleo concepts by type and emphasizing vegetables in a paleo framework, you can get the best of both worlds.

This diet has been particularly successful for the treating of autoimmune disease which is a particular focus for Functional Forum in 2016. Dr Palanisamy is also the host of an upcoming event on Evolutionary Medicine at UCSF with other Functional Forum favorites like Chris Kresser.  Check out IHH-UCSF Symposium on the Paleo Approach and Evolutionary Medicine here!
