(PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Dr. Garrett Smith, a prominent naturopathic physician and Matt Stone, a well-respected independent health researcher, Amazon bestselling author, and founder of 180DegreeHealth have combined forces to deliver the eye-opening new book Solving The Paleo Equation: Stress, Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep.
Solving The Paleo Equation goes beyond Paleo theory—abandoning the “one-size fits all” mentality— allowing readers to better understand the body to achieve optimal health and physical well-being -in the way DNA intended. Smith and Stone encourage readers to leave the rulebooks behind and focus on the fundamentals that "health seekers" often dangerously ignore:
- Sleep: One simple change in the bedroom could restore normal cortisol rhythm
- Stress: Practices to keep the home and workspaces free from raising adrenaline and sapping your testosterone
- Exercise: Simple, free, reliable ways to self-monitor to avoid burnout and over training, regardless of the type of exercise
- Nutrition: Learn about the four "Anti-Stress S's" and their powerful affects in the body
Stone says: “Solving the Paleo Equation lays out a whole new framework for the Paleo template, encouraging readers to re-connect with the instincts developed as a result of a million years of evolutionary fine-tuning and imploring them to think beyond the scope of yes/no lists that have become so relied upon in today’s movement.”
This book addresses many of the pitfalls that plague the modern health movement and offers new insight on how to identify and avoid these ever-so-common black holes:
Burn Out - Extremes don’t work: Ditch the unsustainable and impractical approaches to nutrition and exercise. Overcome the ravages of adrenal fatigue, low metabolism, dwindling sex drive, and sleep problems—all-too-common consequences of overzealous workout regimes. Rehabilitate from the detrimental “health” protocols you've pursued in the past.
(Mis)Information Overload: Be critical. The recent explosion of health information offers a plethora of information that may or may not be in sync with your overall health needs or goals. Bypass the good and bad food lists – they are simply modern invention, and can interfere with the primal instincts we carry from the Paleo era.
Death by technology? Stop thinking about whether or not ancestors ate legumes and focus attention on spending less time in front of your laptops, cell phones, tablets, television, and less time indoors in general. The recent increase in exposure to electromagnetic frequencies and what it’s doing to overall health is mind blowing. These changes to the modern environment are far more significant than the shift from ‘hunting and gathering’ to an ‘agrarian society’. not convinced? Find plenty of eye-popping information in the book.
(Not so) Fun facts: Drinking too much water. This could be inadvertently lowering metabolic rate. Find out this and much more in Solving the Paleo Equation, the manual on do-it-yourself health enhancement.
"Much like the story of the professor and the jar that he fills with rocks, then pebbles, then sand, this book is intended to help people re-focus their energies towards the truly important, big-payoff items that build and maintain health, rather than obsessing over the trendy minutiae of the moment."- Dr. Garrett Smith
Solving the Paleo Equation: Stress, Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep will available in bookstores on January 28, 2014 and is available online for preorder.
