MY NAME IS PAUL SALADINO, MD
I’m a double board certified MD, host of the Fundamental Health podcast, and author of The Carnivore Code and The Carnivore Code Cookbook.
I believe in questioning our assumptions about health and nutrition, which makes me controversial in modern medicine. I'm much more interested in optimal health than in dogmatic adherence to a mainstream narrative.
I graduated from medical school at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and completed my residency at the University of Washington in Seattle. After residency, I attained a board certification as a Physician Nutrition Specialist.
Throughout my medical training, I came to one very saddening conclusion: our Western medical system isn’t helping people lead richer lives.
Western medicine fails to treat the root cause of chronic illness, and doctors are only taught to treat symptoms with medications, rather than trying to understand the roots of illness.
I firmly believe that nutritional choices lie at the ROOT of so many chronic illnesses that western medicine deems irreversible.
And I also believe that most chronic illnesses are preventable AND reversible.
All of my research has led me to believe that an animal-based diet is the most species-appropriate diet for humans…
And the best way to live a life of optimal health.
The bad news is you live in a zoo...
The good news is the cage doors are open.
- You are human, a member of the species Homo sapiens...
- Your ancestors have walked this earth for hundreds of thousands of years...
- But now your past is being erased.
You are being told that meat and organs are bad for you...
- You are being told to stay indoors and hide from the sun...
- You are being told that you are broken and can only be fixed with pharmaceuticals...
By remembering where we have come from as humans, and embracing a diet and lifestyle that is evolutionarily consistent, you reclaim your birthright to optimal health.
I believe an animal-based diet is the most optimal diet for humans. Read about it here.
