1. "Efficient exercise: physical culture at the spearhead of healthcare reform" by Keith Norris & Skyler Tanner


    from Ancestral Health Society Added 2,026 8 0

    ABSTRACT: At the turn of the 20th century, Physical Culture was seen as the means to attain and maintain strength, physical wisdom, and vitality throughout a lifetime. Lost in bodybuilding and aerobic subcultures of the 1960's through today, we aim to refocus attention to the original preventative medicine.

        from Ancestral Health Society Added 6,212 24 0

        ABSTRACT: What is the best fitness program for a panther, a wolf or an eagle? The way evolution and nature intend them to: they move naturally and become amazingly fit in the process. Why should it be any different for us? MovNat is a unique physical education and fitness system based on methodically training the full range of our human evolutionarily natural movement aptitudes. The presentation will cover the MovNat rationale, what distinguishes MovNat from conventional fitness and general physical preparation programs, and introduce you to our main training principles.

          from Ancestral Health Society Added 1,079 5 0

          ABSTRACT: Evolutionary Bariatrics is an approach combining evolutionary and ecological concepts through an integrated healthcare team to treat morbidly obese patient populations. This presentation will emphasize how to assist patients in adopting an evolutionary lifestyle to achieve weight loss and to improve health and fitness. Using this model, patients and healthcare providers will be able to identify and assess roadblocks and psychological triggers to problematic eating and to better design interventions to facilitate the necessary lifestyle changes. This presentation will also discuss the role of the psychologist working with obese patient populations and in a multidisciplinary healthcare team.

            from Ancestral Health Society Added 3,472 9 2

            ABSTRACT: Obesity is one of the greatest health challenges of the 21st century, currently affecting nearly one third of US citizens. Obesity was rare in the US as little as 120 years ago, and it remains uncommon in cultures that have not adopted an industrial diet and lifestyle. How did we get where we are today? Learn why cultures as different as the carbohydrate-eating Pima and the fat-eating Inuit remain lean eating a traditional diet, yet rapidly become obese after the introduction of Western industrial food. Unravel the paradox of why low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets can both cause sustained weight loss. Come explore the biology of obesity with me; learn why the industrial diet causes fat gain, and what we can do about it.

                from Ancestral Health Society Added 1,434 6 0

                ABSTRACT: Not everyone on a Paleolithic diet improves to the same extent. Our studies suggest that those people with risk factors for metabolic syndrome (elevated blood pressure, abdominal obesity, high blood sugars, cholesterol and/or triglyceride) improve more than healthier people. And those subjects whose blood pressures change with changes in salt intake seem to be those most likely to benefit.

                  from Ancestral Health Society Added 2,117 6 0

                  ABSTRACT: Paleo is hot, but many people fail to appreciate the true depth and richness of human prehistory. Sadly, the popular mythology of human history is little more than a "caveman" cartoon, a crude caricature of an immensely meaningful period. If we are to learn anything from our past, we must explore its complexity, diversity and nuance. Not only are we "born to run," we are also born to walk, scavenge, observe, cook, gossip, attach, nurture, learn and discover. Popular accounts of the paleo tend to focus on diet, hunting and barefoot running, but survival also depended on sensitivity, navigation, social skills, emotional regulation, bonding and affiliation. By telling the whole story of our paleo experience, we make it meaningful and relevant to our modern health challenges. The past can inform the present, but only if we understand its full depth and breadth. SLIDES: http://www.slideshare.net/ancestralhealth/frank-forencich-exuberant-animal
