Peak Human is a curated audio series taking an unbiased look at health & nutrition. With so much conflicting information available, filmmaker and health coach Brian Sanders sifts through the dogma and provides a framework that unifies all nutrition and dietary habits that lead to optimum health.
World renowned doctors, researchers, and journalists are interviewed to find out what is the true human dietary framework that we should all be eating to live well and free of chronic disease.

Alright, we’re back! We got Dr. Zsofia Clemens from Paleomedicina in Hungary. They’re doing groundbreaking stuff over there curing all types of diseases mainstream medicine believes are incurable. And you know what - they use zero medications. Their whole thing is removing patient’s medications one by one. They’ve published a bunch of studies you can link to from their site. Dr. Zsofia is a neurobiologist and clinical researcher specialized in nutrition, nutritional therapy and brain research. Previously she’s been affiliated with the National Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, Budapest and the Neurological Department, University of Pécs, Hungary and have been involved in research related to epilepsy and sleep, electroencephalography, vitamin D and brain MRI. They take a pretty radical approach. It makes sense to me though. If I ever had one of these diseases I’d follow their program as well. Take a listen. Some of it may be a bit controversial. Let me know what you think on the old Instagram machine. I’ll give a quick nod to the things that make this show possible. First and foremost is http://NoseToTail.org where you can get sustainably raised grass finished beef, buffalo, lamb, and high omega 3 pork, and chicken shipped to your door. This is my company so you’re supporting me by ordering and a Texas ranch. My favorite thing this week is definitely the Omega 3 primal pork breakfast sausage. It’s seasoned so perfectly and you don’t even taste all the great pastured liver, kidney, heart, and spleen mixed in giving it all the great nutrition. I posted a stack of these patties I cooked up with some pastured eggs and cheese online the other day to make people jealous. I’m telling you it was something special. Maybe it’s all in my head. Maybe it’s that I know how nutritious it is as I eat each delicious bite. Who knows. Last couple things - we have the Food Lies film on Indiegogo with a bunch of perks. We still need to fund all the awesome graphics we have planned for the film. This will be important to get across all the info. It’s a lot, but it’s so important to spread this message in a way people can understand. So much of the world doesn't know about this information. If you’re listening, you probably do know it. But just think how long it took you to figure it all out. I’m here trying to get every single bit possible across in 95 minutes. It’s not easy.  You can preorder the film on Indiegogo or click through from http://FoodLies.org and you can also help the cause by supporting me on Patreon at http://Patreon.com/peakhuman Kristi has been adding to the extended show notes for supporters there.
