How I discovered ancestral health:
A friend of mine, Catherine Shanahan, MD, an author of Deep Nutrition, Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food and Food Rules, a Doctor’s Guide to Healthy Eating, invited me to attend Ancestral Health Symposium in Boston, MA in 2012. This was a very invigorating experience and made sense for me in many ways reflecting on the way I was raised in Ukraine. I have been seeking collaboration with like-minded people around the world ever since and was one of the co-founders of PAH.
