From April 27 to 29th, we attended the Paleo F/X conference in Austin, Texas. The “holistic lifestyle immersion event” covered everything health and wellness, from nutrition and fitness to sustainability and self-improvement. We sat through some inspiring keynote presentations, mastermind panels, and cooking demonstrations, all the while picking the minds of the wellness community's most esteemed authors, bloggers, activists, biohackers, chefs, and others related to the paleo lifestyle.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Mercola, founder of DrMercola.com, a reliable source of health articles, optimal wellness products, medical news, and free natural newsletter; JJ Virgin, who is a certified nutrition specialist, certified health and fitness instructor who started a website for nutrition advice, programs, podcasts, blogs, and more to help visitors take back their health, and dial into their diet, and master their mindset; Dr. Perlmutter, a renowned neurologist whose expertise includes gluten issues, brain health & nutrition, and preventing neuro-degenerative disorders; Mark Sission of wellness portal Marks Daily Apple; and Dennis McKenna, an American ethnopharmacologist, research pharmacognosist, lecturer, and author.
Meanwhile, we met with some of the brightest minds, thought leaders and amazing brands in the wellness and paleo movement.
