Author Information

I am a New Zealand registered nurse and nutritionist (Grad Cert Sci: nutrition, Massey Univ). I am a Certified Zone Instructor, and have worked teaching Zone diet principles to hundreds of clients over the last 10 years. More recently after finding that eating Paleo food choices was the "icing on the cake" health wise, I have become a Paleo enthusiast and teacher. Follow me on twitter @juliannejtaylor

Ancestral Health Symposium: lots of useful links

I’ve started writing a couple of posts. I’m particularly interested as a nutritionist, in the application of some of the science I heard at ancestral nutrition.
In the meantime, I’ve been jumping all over the internet / blogging world getting trapped into reading one fascinating post after another, most from the amazing smart folks who were either at the symposium or presenting at it.
I’m a bit of an information gatherer by nature, and I like to pull stuff together so I’ve got it in one place. So I’ve done a bit of ‘pulling it all together’ of links for AHS presenters. Things like their blogs, published books and articles, pubmed links and the videos & slides from AHS. (Not finished yet, but here is the start – I’ll plug away at this over the next few days)

Here goes:

It all happened on the 5th and 6th of August 2011 at the beautiful campus of  UCLA. 600 hundred participants from around the world, around 50 speakers, and 16 poster presentations.

    No love for Keith and I? I made a joke about everyone listening to Le Corre bang on about nature instead of visiting us but I didn’t expect it to carry this far!

        I’m just playing around, though a ;) would have been helpful! Maybe you’re trying to keep the blog PG, which would explain our talk being excluded.

    Thank you. The more information the better. I recently found the problem of candida is another productive avenue of inquiry.

    Great links!
    Here are some great ones on gluten, albeit it is addressing autism but the talks have far wider applications.
    Cheers,
