What we're about

People who meet here are dedicated to living a quality life, for health and happiness.

Join us and you'll see that we're passionate about a variety of ways to enrich our lives, share our wisdom and cultivate a community of like-minded folks. Although this Meetup group is local, its content is connected to the web in a variety of ways.

Many of us follow a neo-paleo lifestyle, which includes key aspects of many dietary styles based on the ancestral diet, Bulletproof Diet, ketogenic diet and others. Strategies include:

• reliance on low-carb vegetables as a dietary mainstay,

• nutrient-dense foods (not just mineral density in vegetables),

• dietary variability (intermittent and partial fasting, seasonal eating, rotation),

• food as therapy (diet as first principle for wellbeing),

• and conscious food choices (avoiding ruts and autopilot, bypassing cravings).

Conscious food choices also involve:

• unprocessed, unrefined, "natural" foods,

• low carb, low glycemic, anti-insulin-resistance foods,

• clean foods (free of antibiotics, mycotoxins, added hormones, pesticides),

• sustainability (local, organic, biodynamic soil, regional, mixed use),

• ancestral strains (pre-GMO and pre-cultivation vegetables and grains),

• to grain or not to grain (avoidance, rotation, or selective),

• and to milk or not to milk (dairy choices, raw, cultured, etc).
Steve's areas of interest and expertise are:

• self-care modalities (being your own primary-care expert),

• biohacking and quantified-self technologies (fun with gadgets and science),

• aging (mechanisms of aging, and how to age gracefully),

• neurodegerative diseases (Alzheimer's reversal and prevention),

• the FDA (the 23andme situation is just the latest),

• supplements (vitamins, minerals, nutrients, amino acids, etc.).

• metabolism (the "dance" of the body's molecules), and

• the body-brain-mind connection (spiritual health).

Events may include:

• themed potlucks

• outings (hikes),
• lectures, classes, study groups,

• evenings with authors, speakers, film makers, etc.

We'll post our own events, and those of others (for-profit and non-profit).

Self-Care Working Group

Location visible to members

This will be a ZOOM-only (virtual) meeting.

Let me apologize for Meetup in installing an "online event" option that crashes whenever a Zoom URL is added. This meeting is going to be on Zoom despite what Meetup may say. The full details are in the "directions" below.

Let me also apoplogize for not updating this invitation in July. July was the first session of a 16-session Zoom series, and the Meetup notice was for the previous Jan-Jun series. This is the correct invite.

Self-care technologies. Figuring out stuff for yourself. What you can learn before or after you resort to expensive medical testing. Normally, $20 per meeting in my den with a limit of 14 people, but Zooming, it'll be a love offering (Paypal [masked], after the session) with a limit of 98 people. Practitioners, welcome. Topics will include lifestyle, nutrition, supplements, diet, sleep, biohacking, self-empowerment and whatever questions you bring. last session, lots of questions about viral infection. Typically the third Sunday of the month.

This is intended to be a working group, where progress over time is part of the process. However, there is no requirement for implementation. You can listen for informational purposes only, if that is what you wish.
