We are happy to announce that our very own Nell Stephenson will be appearing on the Dr. Oz show tomorrow (4/22/2013) discussing the paleo diet, along with her mentor and friend Dr. Loren Cordain. The title of the show is The Paleo Diet Craze: Does it Work? We aren't sure what to expect, but considering it is on the Dr. Oz show, we are very confident it will be overly dramatic!

Why Nell Went Paleo:
From her profile: In 2004, I contracted a parasite during an Ironman race. I sought medical advice and accepted my prescription for Flagyl right away, but continued to feel worse and worse. After six months, I was at my wits end. I began to research online and, through trial and error, discovered I had developed an intolerance to gluten. Despite having spent six months visiting doctors and specialists (none of whom asked anything about my diet) and going to the E/R on more than one occasion, left to my own devices, I figured it out on my own.
I’d previously always eaten a ‘healthy’ diet with lots of veggies and fruit… as well as plenty of ‘good old’ whole grains, legumes (lots of soy and peanuts when I was vegan for two years!) and organic dairy. I was a ‘fit’ age group athlete on the outside, but on the inside, my GI system seemed to be rapidly progressing from the mildly annoying stomachaches I’d had for years in varying degrees, to suddenly being doubled over in pain after every single snack or meal, for months!
Long story short… I stumbled across The Paleo Diet, read it, and began following it straight away.
I felt better in three days. I wrote to Dr. Cordain to simply thank him for his work and tell him what a gift it had been to me to discover it, and to share with my clients. He wrote back, and the rest is history!
