It’s a big day here at Mark’s Daily Apple! Today I am pleased to introduce The Primal Advantage metabolic consulting program. Finally, you can engage one-on-one with a respected medical expert aligned with Primal principles to fine tune your metabolic function. The Primal Advantage is overseen by Dr. Cate Shanahan, a family practice physician from Napa, CA, one of the leading MD’s in the ancestral health community, popular PrimalCon presenter, and author (with her husband Luke) of two extremely popular books, Deep Nutrition and Food Rules.
I’ve realized a pressing need for Primal Blueprint to offer such 1:1 professional consulting for many years, due to the high volume of email questions I receive on matters of health and even medical conditions at Mark’s Daily Apple. Don’t get me wrong – I love fielding reader questions in my weekly Dear Mark column. However, a significant percentage of my reader questions relate to medical matters that are not appropriate for me to answer. Turning to a “regular” doctor for support when you are committed to Primal living but struggling with certain health issues, confused about risk factors, or second-guessing your prescription drug regimen, can often be highly problematic. Particularly when it comes to the link between nutrition and health, your doctor is unlikely to be qualified to offer sensible guidance.
