What aspects of ancestral health are you interested in?

* Optimal nutrition based on ancestral wisdom, legit modern science & learning to listen to my own bodies needs * Food & water quality, food sourcing & locality (including growing & raising my own) * Holistic, alternative and do-no-harm approaches to healing & supporting the body * Play & exercise that builds energy * Being outdoors in nature (grounding/earthing, Vitamin D, cause its awesome, etc) * Proper sleep, honoring circadian rhythms (a definite work-in-progress for this girl!) * Barefoot & minimal footwear * Truly natural body care & cleaning products * Creating a community/village/tribe of awesome people * Striving for balance in my daily life * Mental & emotional health, meditation, being in the moment * Proper fertility preparation & natural/empowered childbirth & parenting

How do you incorporate ancestral health in to your life today?

I eat a primal/WAP/Gluten-free diet. I support my local farmer at the Farmer's Market & recently split an 1/8th share of 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef with my sister. I just got some Vivobarefoot ballet flats that I can wear to work & I haven't worn a conventional shoe since. I love them! I try to get outside and go barefoot whenever I can. I have a wonderful naturopathic doctor who helps me take charge of my health. I use all homemade or completely natural body care products and cleaning products. I live in Vancouver (fluoridated water :/) so I use a Berkey filter for my drinking and cooking water.

What types of events would you like to attend with our group?

* Social/Play * Educational/learning * Primal food events! * Outdoor activities and fitness * Cooking & DIY body care & cleaning classes I'm sure there is more... :) * Gardening & growing/raising food Pretty much most things!


Hi everyone! I am a creative soul with an analytical streak; excited to find a community of people who have a similar outlook on life, health, food and fun!
