Ancestral Health Symposium 2012: At a Glance

After missing my flight yesterday morning from too much post AHS shenanigans and flying surrounded by 6 sugar fueled children (shoot me), I slept a grand total of 14 hour. Here’s a quick smattering of thoughts:

  • Evolution, evolution, and more evolution – it’s kind of a big deal
  • But…since the US still has a MAJOR issue with evolution, Mat “The Kraken” Lalonde, and others, set up a framework for evaluating food choice that comes to the same conclusion
  • There are a ton of regulatory hurdles to practicing an ancestral diet (i.e. raw milk bans, heritage pork bans, limitations on farm-consumer sales, etc.)
  • Grassfed beef, may have limitations that keep if from being the paleo holy sacred cow
  • Lack of movement sessions was a mistake
  • More awesome vendors this year, need more vendors next year
  • Panel discussions were more mini talks by multiple people, need topics of discussion and moderators
  • The “Great Carb Debate” is still in full swing
  • Too few attendees in the room for panel on reclaiming health in the Latino community, these folks have the answer
  • Food choices (catered lunch/food vendors) were outstanding
  • Business cards and name tags are out, twitter handles are in
  • Where were all the talks on gut flora and the microbiome?
  • Beautiful attendees, everyone was vibrant and healthy
  • No coughing or sneezing in the audience, not once
  • Sustainable farm dinner was the highlight of the entire symposium
  • Stop reading, go directly to US Wellness and buy the bacon, its that good

Expect a more through writeup as the chicken scratch gets turned into the written word, that and I consume a copious amount of Bullet Proof Coffee
