A New Adventure
I've been a podcast listener for years, long before I found paleo. I live in the mountains where radio reception is poor, so when I discovered I can listen to all my favorite programs (and more), without static, at my convenience, I was thrilled! My commute to work filled with favorite shows like On Being, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, the Diane Rehm Show and more. Then I found paleo, and I added shows like Revolution Health Radio and The Paleo Solution. I've learned so much from those shows, and I still enjoy listening to them. But I noticed something – autoimmune healing comes up only occasionally, because none of those shows are 100% dedicated to this topic. So, I decided to start my own. It's called Phoenix Helix: Dedicated to reversing autoimmune disease through the paleo diet and lifestyle. My goal is to expand on what I share here. I hope you'll tune in and spread the word. Podcast lovers unite!
Will I Still Write For My Blog?
Absolutely! While my husband will tell you I love to talk (what woman doesn't?), writing is my passion. That's not going to go away. I've scheduled the podcast to be a biweekly show, so that I still have time to research articles and share inspiring stories here. Every other week, I'll post a link to the podcast with show notes summarizing the topic. On opposite weeks, you can expect the types of articles you've found here over the past two years. And the Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable will continue to be a weekly event.
The First Show: Healing Stories
I decided to kick the podcast off with personal stories of people who are successfully reversing autoimmune symptoms and reclaiming a beautiful life. For people who know nothing about this lifestyle, those stories show them what's possible. For those of us pursuing this lifestyle, those stories tell us we're not alone. Future episodes will alternate between interviews with experts, panel discussions, and Q&A's on a wide range of topics to help us all live this lifestyle and improve our health. Spoiler alert: look forward to Sarah Ballantyne as my guest for Episode 3.
