Do You Want to Become an Expert in Darwinian/Evolutionary Medicine?

Darwinian/evolutionary medicine is a fascinating and emerging discipline. Over the past couple of decades, more and more people, including many scientists and health practitioners, have started to recognize that our current health-care system is bleeding and diseased; a malady has taken hold at its roots. Some of these observant individuals make the case that the […]

Ask Eirik: Does Intermittent Fasting Work as Well for Women as for Men?

Today I received an e-mail from Cain Credicott, Co-Owner/Editor in Chief at Paleo Magazine. He contacted me because one of his editors had a question about an article on Intermittent Fasting (IF) I handed in a short while ago and that they’re now preparing to publish. I thought the editor’s question was a great one, […]

Can Worms Cure Disease? 17 Questions With Dr. William Parker

Quite recently I was contacted by Donna Beales, a researcher and proponent of Darwinian medicine. She told me she was looking for like-minded people who would be interested in spearheading projects related to Darwinian/evolutionary medicine and biome reconstitution.

Saturated Fat: The Madness Has to Stop

These days, it seems like rarely a day goes by when you don’t see articles about saturated fat appearing in the mainstream press.

Stop Bombarding Your Gut With Probiotics

One of the biggest diet mistakes I’ve ever made was to take in large quantities of probiotics (in the form of fermented foods and supplements) on a daily basis. This behaviour harmed my microbiome and undermined my health. Unlike what a lot of people seem to believe, probiotics – microorganisms that are believed to provide […]

Follow Me on Instagram

At long last, I’ve created an Instagram account! (Link: https://www.instagram.com/eirikgarns/) One of the reasons I decided to do so is that I want to connect with you – the readers of this blog – and give you a window into my life. I’m probably not going to update my profile very often; at least not […]

Your Skin Microbiome is Under Attack

The human gut microbiome has received a lot of attention lately. These days, news articles and studies on probiotics, prebiotics, gut bacteria, and other similar topics are published all the time. Scientists, bloggers, and journalists have also started paying attention to microbial communities associated with other organs, such as the skin, lungs, and vagina; however, […]

Rest in Peace, Staffan Lindeberg

I was shocked and saddened to hear that Staffan Lindeberg (MD, PhD) recently passed away. Staffan was one of the leading scientists in the Paleo/ancestral health field and helped spearhead the research on evolutionary nutrition. I consider him to be one of the founding fathers of the ancestral health movement. I never had the pleasure […]

How Paleo Could Revolutionize Medicine
