We have a genetic blueprint and there does appear to be a
species-appropriate diet for humans. What can we take from these
ancestral narratives about what that diet might be? If you look at
indigenous groups today, they eat animal meat, animal organs, and
seasonal fruit but plants as fall back foods for survival in times
of scarcity. That's completely different from the non-supportive
narratives that we've been told today about red meat. There's no
real evidence that red meat is bad for us and why would it be? Why
would these animal meat and organs that we have been eating for our
entire evolution as hominoids be bad for us? That's completely
evolutionarily inconsistent. - Dr. Paul

supports the body’s production of beneficial enzymes through redox
signaling (cellular communication).
Those beneficial enzymes support the tight junctions (the seals
between cells) in our gut lining – the barrier protecting us from
toxic substances like glyphosate and gluten while allowing the
entry of beneficial nutrients.
Keeping Your Gut Healthy
It’s a critical barrier to keep strong so that a vibrant
microbiome can flourish. Good health depends entirely on gut health
because a lot more than digestion happens in the gut. It’s also
where proper immune system function begins and the majority of our
neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, are created.
Say yes to ION*Gut
Health and you are saying yes to optimal gut-brain
connectivity and feel-good transmissions, protection from the
toxins we face every day in our air, water, and food, immune
function, digestive wellness, and supported gluten tolerance.

Power Quotes From The
How Will You Use Food To Embody Health?
"We as humans really need to make an intentional choice about
what our highest quality of life is and then we can live into that
however we decide to embody it. If someone listening to this really
believes that their highest quality of life is feeling good,
thinking clearly, good body composition, good libido, muscle tone,
good sleep, emotional stability, then we need to make choices that
support that. Those choices may not always be the same
entertainment choices in regards to food that we're used to making.
It’s up to us to decide what we want out of this life. What do you
want out of this health? Are you going to use food as
entertainment, to deal with stress, to get you through moments
where you’re bored or uncomfortable or anxious, or are you going to
try and use food to embody, create, and manifest this highest level
of health that you can in your body?" - Dr. Paul
The Myths About Meat & Plants
“Red meat and organs, eating ‘nose to tail,’ is something that’s
been a part of the human diet for millions of years. It has shaped
us as humans, it’s a central part of who we are, and if we don’t do
that, we will not obtain optimal health. Eating those foods,
well-raised, is integral to our optimal health as humans. It’s
always been part of our evolutionary blueprint. Plants do exist on
a toxicity spectrum and if we’re struggling, I want to give people
tools to understand which ones are the most toxic, least toxic, and
then how to leverage that so that they can find their optimal
health and solve that quality of life equation for the best answer
for them.” - Dr. Paul Saladino
Healing The Gut-Brain Connection
"A lot of our mental environment is determined by our biology.
I've worked with a lot of people with psychiatric issues and a lot
of these underlying issues whether it's anxiety, depression, etc.
they're based on some degree of neuroinflammation. There is some
irritation, some activation of the immune system in the brain and
that can absolutely be connected with issues in the gut. If we have
problems, if we have irritants to the gut caused by plant toxins,
inadequate nutrients, or excess linoleic acid that can be
transmitted to the brain through the immune system.Changing our
diet and focusing on eating nose to tail seems complicated because
we're undoing our conditioning in 2020 but it's not necessarily
complicated from an evolutionary perspective. If we can understand
and return to what the natural state is for humans, we can heal not
just the body but the gut-brain connection as well." - Dr.
