Hasic has produced an excellent guide on the dynamics of the Paleo Diet. The author encourages us to eat healthful food like the cavepeople did 10,000 years ago. Such things as grains and gluten are out while fruits, veggies and nuts are very much in.
The author addresses the benefits of high intensity training and kettle ball exercises which emphasize torque training and range of motion. These exercises in particular may help to preclude excess calcium from hardening and interfering with range of motion.
Hasic recommends supplements as well. Examples include Ca., Mg., Zn., K and CoQ 10 to mention just a few. Light therapy is praised for managing depression. Dietary control and sustained exercise is even beneficial for maintaining testosterone levels which plummet with advancing age.
The book emphasizes that sleep is important, as well as exercise and leading a smoke-free existence. There is a good section which explains how to soak bone for over a day to compose a gel which benefits arthritic and musculoskeletal issues. Dieters should go chemical-free in their food choices. In addition, low sugar and starch fights candida.
There are a number of healthful food choices like jicama, radish, onion, celery, kohrabi, cabbage, turnip, parsnip, brocolli, cauliflower, cucumber, peas, bok choy, beets, arugula and asparagus.
Overall, Hasic's book on the Paleo Diet is packed with good information backed up by many references from scientific sources at the end of the book. The Paleo Diet protocols can have a substantial economic benefit by keeping people healthy so that they will utilize medical facilities less frequently. This book and others like it make a substantial contribution by showing people how to eat so that medical issues can be managed more optimally in the first case. The ultimate goal for medical delivery systems should be health maintenance and well being rather than disease management alone.
