Upcoming Talks in 2012


Published on


I’ve got four speaking engagements in 2012 I’d like to let you know about, beginning with one right here in Berkeley on Sunday, February 26th. I’m hoping I get to meet some of you in person at these events.

Three Stone Hearth in Berkeley, CA – Sunday, February 26th from 3-5pm

Topic: What to do – or not do – about high cholesterol

Three Stone Hearth is a community-supported kitchen (CSK) in Berkeley, CA. What the heck is a CSK, you ask? From their website:

Three Stone Hearth is pioneering a new business model: a community-supported, worker-owned cooperative, and a teaching kitchen all in one.

Our work is grounded in shared values of sustainability, community, and health.

Inspired by diverse cuisines, our weekly menus are prepared using the nourishing traditions approach to ensure maximum digestibility and nutrient absorption.

Ordering from us helps reduce your carbon footprint. We pack our foods in re-usable glass containers, compost waste, and purchase from local farms.

Elanne and I order food from them each week, and it’s delicious, nourishing and very convenient for us. We cook a lot, of course, but as anyone running their own business with young kids knows, sometimes it’s just hard to pull off cooking a nice meal at the end of a long day.

It’s like having your own Primal/Paleo chef, except a lot cheaper. If you live in the Bay Area and haven’t checked them out, click here to sign up and place your first order!

I’ll be speaking about cholesterol and heart disease. This is an updated talk focusing on a practical framework for determining whether high cholesterol is a problem for you or not, and if it is, what to do about it.

PaleoFx in Austin, TX – March 14th – 16th

Topic: What to do – or not do – about cholesterol


The PaleoFX Ancestral Momentum – Theory to Practice Symposium fosters collaboration among fitness professionals, healthcare professionals, nutritionists, research scientists and laypersons who approach their respective practices from an evolutionary perspective in order to successfully address modern health challenges through the application of ancestral based theory in practice.

I’m giving a 40-minute talk on my practical framework for determining whether high cholesterol is a problem, and what to do about it. I will also be on a panel discussion exploring the pros and cons of whole foods vs. supplements.

Ancestral Health Symposium in Cambridge, MA – August 9th – 11th

Topic: Iron Behaving Badly: A Protective Mutation Gone Wrong

The Ancestral Health Symposium is the premier conference for scientists, healthcare professionals and laypersons interested in evolutionary health and medicine. If you’ve been around the Paleo/Primal scene for any length of time, I’m certain you’ve heard of it.

I’ll be giving a 40-minute presentation on the under-diagnosed phenomenon of iron overload, and its impact on blood sugar regulation and male reproductive health in particular.

Wise Traditions Conference in Santa Clara, CA – November 9th – 12th

Topic: The gut-brain-skin axis

The Weston A. Price approach to nutrition was my entry point into the world of nutrient-dense food, and I’m a big supporter of their mission and activities. They have invited me to present on a favorite topic of mine, the gut-brain-skin axis. And they were nice enough to host the conference in the Bay Area this year. Hooray!

It looks like registration isn’t active yet, but check back at this page in a few weeks to get signed up.

Okay, that’s it. I hope to see you at one of these events in 2012.

  1. Awesome! I’m looking forward to this. I’m going to Diane Sanfilippo’s practical paleo seminar on Saturday in Santa Rosa so it will be an insightful weekend for sure! Is this the talk that will be broadcast on the Paleo Summit? I just signed up for that too.

  2. Id love to see you come to the northwest, maybe Portland, Oregon perhaps? I live about 30 minutes north of there but would great to see you up here, and I think you and a talk up here would fit right in.

  3. Hooray! I will finally get to meet you in November at the WAPF Conference! It was Sally who finally got me off tofu, and this was my re-entry point – back to omnivorism!

  4. Wow… I’ve been waiting for an event like this to actually happen on the East coast, and now it’s happening down the street from me! Good things come to those who wait.
