Those of us in the ancestral health community sometimes use terms like evolutionary mismatch and evolutionary medicine, but what are these? What exactly is evolutionary mismatch? What is evolutionary medicine?
Let’s look at what evolutionary medicine is in general, how mismatch fits into this theoretical framework, and how this can help us describe the ancestral health approach.
Location: Framed by Boulder Creek and the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, The University of Colorado at Boulder provides the perfect setting for an ancestral health gathering. With amazing outdoor opportunities, a vibrant food scene, plenty of cultural interest, and easy airport access from anywhere in the US, AHS16 is bound to be even bolder than ever!
With great sadness, we acknowledge the passing of a great ancestral health advocate, Mary Enig, PhD. Our condolences go out to her family, friends, and the Weston A. Price Foundation community. Let us honor her by carrying her message forward to others.
AHS14 goes into full swing this week, bringing ancestral health to the UC Berkeley campus in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. AHS co-founder Brent Pottenger will be busy tending to the fourth incarnation of his vision for an ancestral health gathering, but you can hear him on Danny Lennon’s Sigma Nutrition podcast in the meantime.
Coming into AHS14, we can’t help but wonder what to expect from our distinguished speakers.
We caught a few words with Jamie Scott, aka That Paleo Guy, who is traveling all the way from New Zealand. He told us about his experience with AHS, why he participates, his presentation in Berkeley, the Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand, the low down on the Kiwi ancestral scene, and more.
This August 7-10, please join us for two events in Berkeley, Seth’s old stomping grounds, to celebrate his legacy. We will carry with us Seth’s vibrant spirit, and fond memories of his passion for understanding what it means to be a human being.
For both events, please find directions, transportation and accommodations information here.
The Ancestral Health Symposium brings together people from around the world who view human health and lifestyle choices from evolutionary perspectives. These people value the wisdom embedded in our diverse ancestries as human beings.
