Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #43- Do NOT get a flu shot!

Every Fall, like clockwork, the medical clinics and doctors start advertising and pushing for flu shots- even shopping centers and pharmacies are offering them.  Should you get one?

Well, remember a few years ago when the flu shot was recommended only for the elderly and children, especially those with compromised health...

And NOW the YEARLY flu shot is recommended to EVERYONE over 6 months of age!

Let’s see, if everyone in the United States over the age of 6 months gets a flu shot, well that’s a really big profit for the pharmaceutical companies and the medical clinics that administer it, isn’t it?

And there you have the real reason why the flu shot is being promoted- profit!

If you get a chicken pox vaccine, you supposedly become immune for your entire life to chicken pox.  But you are supposed to get a flu vaccine every single year- and that is said to be because the virus mutates, and is slightly different year to year, and this is true...

And it’s also true that the flu vaccine manufacturer has no idea what mutated form the next years virus will take- they just guess!

In addition, the vaccines are loaded with toxic substances such as aluminum, MSG, and even antifreeze!  Who wants that stuff??

And so, bottom line, it is your own body and its innate health that determines whether or not you get the flu, or for that matter any sort of disease.  The very best thing you can do for yourself in terms of protection is to follow some simple tenets of health that have been with us since paleolithic times-

Cut grains and sugars from your diet

Get adequate sleep- 8 hours per night

Consume LOTS of dark green veggies, God made real foods like:
Natural full fat dairy such as grass fed butter, pastured meats, wild caught seafood, coconut milk and natural spices such as cloves, cinnamon, turmeric and ginger

Exercise naturally, with perfectly paleo exercises like pushups, virtual resistance training or transformetrics, barefoot sprinting and other interval training, and other calisthenics

The very best way of incorporating a wonderful, real foods diet high in all of these things is with a Paleo smoothie, made in a Vitamix blender, on a daily basis.  This is a concentrated form of real, complete foods (all the fiber is there in the drink!) that is worlds better than “juicing”, which removes the fiber and concentrates the sugars in the resulting juice.

At there is a link to take you to Vitamix Corporation directly to order your own Vitamix with free shipping.

Save the yearly cost of toxic, worse-than-useless flu vaccines for each and every member of your family and put it towards a tool that will really enhance and build your health, and that of your entire family for decades- get yourself a Vitamix blender and build the health of your body from the inside out.

Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #42 Regrainwash yourself at Paleo Podcast University

How to “go Paleo” - Easily!

Think of “going Paleo” as returning to your roots- because you are!
The so-called Paleo diet is NOT just that of our primeval ancestors, chasing wooly mammoths with spears and flint knives (although it is that as well!) ... it is the diet of our great grandparents, Pa and Ma Ingalls Wilder in the little house in the big woods.  It’s the diet of the cowboys, and the American colonials who revolted from King George in England and set up this great nation.

He ate paleo!
They ate paleo

EVERYONE used to eat paleo!!
It’s the diet of EVERYONE in our past- the Knights of the Middle ages, the Romans, the Greeks, the Sumerians- it goes ALL THE WAY BACK!
They all ate REAL FOOD!  We are the FIRST few generations in HISTORY that have eaten... LARGELY PURE UNADULTERATED CRAP!
Sorry to be so graphic, but the processed stuff we ingest today is hardly worth being called food!

NOT paleo...
Things were not that horribly bad even 40 years ago... by the 1980’s and 1990’s, processed fake food like substances from factories and labs and fast food “engineers” and food flavor chemical “scientists” had reached the point that, through marketing and political lobbying- they got increasingly huge subsidies for modified GRAINS that were not even natural foods anymore!  AND the government and the FDA and the ridiculous Food Pyramid and now My Plate all followed in lockstep, telling us all to _

“Just Eat Lots of this Crap!  Real food is dangerous!  Eat heart healthy GMO grains and plastic margarine, put chemically extracted oils on everything, and drink lots of skimmed (nutritionally barren sugar water) milk- ALL WILL BE WELL!

Well, we’ve by and large followed this rotten advice for 50- 60 years, progressively getting more and more behind the whole idea, reinforced by the AMA and the ADA actually BACKING it...

And, as a nation, and increasingly as a WORLD-


What should we do?

“Go Paleo, young man! (or Woman)!

It may seem overwhelming to overturn a lifetime of brainwashing.

But never fear!  PaleoJay is here!!

The best thing to do is to go to  I will always try to steer you right, my friend...

But, to my mind, PODCASTS are the single best way to “reconfigure your marketing/manipulated brain” back into reality!  Think of them as a way, whilst you are driving, walking, working around the yard or walking, to GET YOUR MIND BACK IN SYNC WITH YOUR ANCESTORS!   Also, to get up to date with the real RESEARCH that is out there, since the powers-that-be only try to hush all of that up-


I will give you here a list of podcasts (and they all have accompanying blogs, as well!), that will give you ample information to REFORMAT YOU MIND from the BIG BROTHER SWILL you have been fed since birth, by the government, Big Ag, Big Pharma, and Big Advertising...

I suggest you just, even if you are now doubtful, just LISTEN to what they all have to say.  Over time, I think you will gradually be convinced, because the SCIENCE all backs up what they say, and your own common sense will evaluate, and realize TRUTH when you hear it.  SO, here are your Podcasts to listen to:   This can be your new “commuting hobby!” (Or other task-oriented activity wherein your mind was previously wasted...)

PaleoJay's Smoothie Cafe #88 The Very Best Type of Exercise EVER!

pjsc podcast  #88 The Very Best Type of Natural Exercise You Can Do!

Something that I have brought up on a regular basis, and actually go into depth on in my eBook Perfectly Paleo Exercise is most perfect type of exercise you can possibly do- it requires NO equipment, can be done anywhere, and allows a maximum contraction and tension throughout the whole range of motion of each muscle in the body from head to toe, and shapes the body symmetrically , and without damaging the discs in the back or risking shoulder or knee damage, which effects are inevitable with weight training!  What is this miracle form of exercise?

It’s what Charles Atlas taught in his famous mail order courses of comic book fame- he called it dynamic tension- it is also called virtual resistance, and transformetrics.

But whatever you call it, it works, it has worked for literally thousands of years in many cultures throughout the world, and it will work for you.

How does it work?  It’s simple once you see and understand it, and it is easily incorporated into your life.  The best way to understand and implement it is to either get my eBook Perfectly Paleo Exercise, and/or go to

This is part of the site of John E. Peterson, and he is the modern day, living personification of Charles Atlas!  Years ago, I found a couple of books of his, and learned of this form of exercise when I was still a busted up, chronically injured weight lifter- it changed my training life entirely, and actually improved and enhanced my physique and overall strength, while simultaneously freeing me from hours of painful training in the gym, and ultimately curing all my chronic injuries that had been caused by those very weights.

If you go to the transformetrics site, you can see the exercises I am talking about, which are really just controlled flexing of each muscle group throughout the full range of motion.

Really!  It is that simple- you just flex, the degree of applied tension is up to you- it can be a mild flex, but what you want to work up to is a powerful flex and tension as you slowly go through the full range of motion- you will feel it, strongly, and if you are used to using weights you will recognize the feeling as exactly the same- but without the damage to joints and cartilage- and actually more intense because the tension is just as strong in the “weak” part of the “lift” as it is in the strong part, and because there is no cheating as in lifting more weight by cheating in form... you know, like curling a heavy bar and rocking back to life more weight than you could with strict form- since the tension is generated internally, BY YOU, the tension (the “weight”) is always just what you make it, no more, no less, and so you can make it IDEAL at each and every part of the “lift”...

And no damage to your precious, God given body!

Not only no damage, but doing these movements will actually rejuvenate, and rebuild your physique from the inside out- where weights actually stress the tendons by chiefly putting the tension on the muscles only, virtual or self-generated resistance put the stress first on the tendons and ligaments, strengthening them first, and then safely passing the stress onto the musculature itself.

This not only develops the physique in the most symmetrical, natural and pleasing way, i.e. without excessive bulk as in a fat butt, bulky thighs, and protruding abdomen so common in heavy weight lifters and conventional bodybuilders, but it actually builds the sort of real world strength that is so important in performing real physical feats in the real world, like actually moving heavy awkward objects, and strength that is applicable in twisting, pounding, and otherwise moving in different planes of motion!

Not just things like, oh, squatting under a heavy bar and straining straight upwards, or lying on a bench, and pushing a heavy bar straight up, or lifting a heavy bar from the ground, straight up as in a deadlift-

How applicable is this sort of “strength” to daily life??

Especially, if while doing the above you are wearing a belt, and knee wraps, (as in the squat)?

Or a bench shirt, and wrist wraps, as in a bench press??

Or, doing a dead lift, wearing a belt, special shoes, and straps to hold the bar???

How strong are you REALLY??  I mean IN THE REAL WORLD?

And so, my friend- come back to the future!

As I so often say, our future is in our past!!

And this form of natural exercise has been with us forever, long before weights, or machines, or P90X, or any other training fad...

And, it is so easily incorporated into your daily life-

It is easy to do in your living room, in front of the television!

Or outside, in nature, amongst a grove of pine trees, as I often do...

Or in a motel room if you are traveling!

And how much time are we talking here??

Really, not that much at all!  The thing is, this form of virtual training is so natural, and physically so satisfying and non- draining, that the tendency is to just do it, and keep on for a while, since it feels so good.

To get good effects, time wise?  15 minutes will do very well!  That is enough time to work the entire body...

The thing is though, you work through the entire body, and are feeling great (not drained or sore or injured at all!), and then you decide to...

Repeat the cycle

And why not?  The muscles are warmed up, you feel great, and you want to increase the tension somewhat on the next cycle or set...

Also, you are in the middle of a movie or whatever program on TV, and you want to continue watching- why not keep going?

At a later stage, after doing this for awhile, you may want to add in some pushups, and some straight legged sit ups and hindu squats in the mix- I mean, as your strength and overall fitness increase, it just starts to feel good to use your muscles as God intended, and to gradually enhance your ability to do so... so you do!

Old aches and pains will diminish- I know mine did!  You will start to add in isometrics and self-resisted exercises- anything to continue building your body via physical culture which is what this whole process is as opposed to bodybuilding, cross fit, olympic lifting, or whatever damaging physical process you have been sucked into...

Virtual resistance, transformetrics, dynamic tension-

Whatever you call it- this natural, physical culturist form of exercise-

The kind that has been with us since pre-biblical times to train the greatest warriors ever, including peaceful warriors- and the greatest physiques such as the models for the statues of the ancient Greeks:

I call it Perfectly Paleo Exercise!

Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #41- Don't eat like a RAT!

Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #41  Don’t eat like a RAT!
I know, that sounds crazy-  you’re thinking

“I don’t eat like a rat!  I eat human food, like sandwiches, pasta, candy... you know, the SAD Standard american diet perhaps, but not food for a rat!”

Well, if you eat those things, especially all forms of grain products, you are eating like a rat.  Rats are actually well suited little grain burners, and can digest grains safely without damage- humans are not grain or sugar burners.  We think we can eat foods unsuited for us just because we have done so for about 10,000 years at the most, and for most of that time in quite small quantities, and from grains that were not genetically altered  to increase production and also incidentally to increase the gluten levels.  Gluten is actually an intestinal irritant to humans, and opens the pathways within our gut linings to autoimmune diseases- those diseases where the body begins fighting itself.  Things like arthritis, diverticulitis, rosacea, eczema, multiple scerosis, psoriasis, type 1 diabetes... the list goes on and on!

Rats, on the other hand, along with most birds, have a unique ability to eat grains, and to thrive on them.  We do NOT. We can pretend to be a rat or a bird, but we are much more like a cow or a pig- they, like us, can also not properly digest grains without harm coming to their gut lining from the grain irritation.  They are fed these grains (and other things like candy wrappers) to stimulate fast fat gain.  This is another result of eating like a rat- you will gain lots of fat, fast when you eat lots of grains like wheat and corn!

To illustrate what grains, in particular GMO grains are doing to our intestines, we have only to look at US livestock- pig intestines nowadays in the U.S. are so damaged by the time of slaughter that they cannot even be used as casings to contain meat!  They rupture because they are so fragile and damaged, and so America is now forced to import our sausage and brat casings from Europe, where GMO’s are outlawed.  This used to be a billion dollar business in the US, and now it’s gone.

And this effect is from the short lifetime of a pig or cow in a CAFO or confined animal feeding operation- what kind of effect do you think it has on us humans, who are exposed to this toxic stuff for decades and decades and decades of life??

If you are one of the 60-70 million in the US that are reported to have severe digestive and/or other autoimmune problems, including autism which is running rampant among our youngsters these days, I would strongly recommend eliminating these grains from your diet!

And it is not only your body that is damaged by GMO grains-GMO grain fed  pigs that were introduced into running a maze (a kind of pig IQ test) did significantly worse that pigs fed a gmo grain free diet.  I think the damage potential from these grains is at LEAST as great upon the mind, as it is upon the body.

So come on back to the “land of milk and honey”- grass fed cattle and dairy, wild local honey, vegetables and fruits- real God made food!

Leave GMO RAT foodland and come to the Paleo Real Food Promised land!

Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #40 Spice up your Smoothie!

PQTD #40  Spice up your Smoothie!
One of the foundation stones of my version of eating Paleo here at Paleo Quick Tip of the Day and at PaleoJay’s Smoothie Cafe is a daily, paleo smoothie whipped up in a Vitamix blender, ideally.  Why is this so important?  Because, even more important than eliminating toxic and processed foods like wheat, sugars, high fructose corn syrup and highly processed foods like orange juice and skimmed milk is to add in all of the nutrient dense foods that you can!

The most efficient, easy, and palatable ways to do this is by making your own Paleo Smoothie- one canister usually lasts my wife and myself for several days, and it supplies more nutrition in those few glasses we consume than all of the other God made, ancestral foods we eat- a paleo smoothie is that nutrient dense!

With that in mind, I am constantly trying to increase that density of superfoods to the maximum- and one of the best ways I’ve found to do that is by adding spices to the smoothie- specifically ginger & turmeric.

These are both super spices, that add in nutritional benefits in exceedingly huge proportions, especially considering the small amount that is needed!
I have ginger and turmeric powders that I buy in larger amounts, and then add into small spice jars above my counter- then, when I make my smoothie, I simply reach up and shake about a teaspoon or so of each into my Vitamix... I also have my kelp, maca, and spirulina powders handy in spice jars for easy access!  It makes smoothie making pretty effortless.

Ginger is not only high in nutrient density, it has anti-inflammatory properties that make is a potent protector against cancer, heart disease, and many lesser ailments like colds, flu, and skin conditions.  Turmeric and maca have much the same properties- all are made from ancient plant roots, and can be ground into a powder that can be easily added to your smoothie and are thus easily assimilated into your diet.

In addition, all of these spicy powders are very helpful in the healing of leaky gut, which is endemic in the modern Western world, and the foundation of most of our modern, degenerative diseases.  This includes obesity, all skin diseases, diabetes, heart problems and cancer, not to mention the many lesser ones like gerd, heartburn, diverticulitis, ulcers, migraines- I mean the list goes on and on of the many curses of living in the modern world!

And, if just by adding in some nutrient dense spices into an already veggie loaded smoothie containing just about all that is needed for healthy human life support and enhancement...

My gosh!  Just spice up your life- get a Vitamix with free shipping, any model you choose, at, pick up some spices and the other ingredients for the Paleo Smoothie, and get going NOW!

It’s not complicated, it’s not hard, and just this one simple step will improve your life, mindset and overall health more than anything.

Essential Oils and the Ancestral, Paleo lifestyle- All together now!

Essential Oils can Cure, Revitalize, and just make you feel GREAT!

I have been using essential oils for quite a while now, particularly to brush my teeth with, and to use on my skin- both with great effect!  Tea tree oil is a favorite for oral health, as are peppermint and almond oils.

 I have recently read a wonderful primer on the subject by Dr. Josh Axe, and want to share it with all of you- Dr. Axe's Essential Oils Guide

I recommend you read this guide, and also to download his free eBooklet on the subject-

AND- download The King's Medicine Cabinet while you are there!Dr. Josh Axe on Essential Oils

This is a free ebook that will serve as a primer on e oils...

These brief guides will tell you all you need to know to get you started into the wonderful, ancestral world of essential oils, from using them therapeutically on your body, to transforming your environment through the use of a diffuser!              

Don't worry, I shall return with more information- but for now, listen to today's PaleoJay's Smoothie Cafe podcast #87- First do no Harm! - and, while you listen, go to Dr. Axe's site and download his guide!



PaleoJay's Smoothie Cave Podcast #87 First, do no harm- AVOID your Medical Doctor!

PJSC First Do no Harm

A famous saying from the founder of Western medicine, Hippocrates, it is meant to be one of the guiding principles of that modern medicine.  Unfortunately, in our time, this guiding principle seems to be largely thrown out the window!  Many thousands die yearly from iatrogenesis, which is a term meaning “Death by Doctor”... in fact, iatrogenesis is now the leading cause of death in the United States of America!

How about that in light of first do no harm?

The Nutrition Institute of America funded an independent review of “government-approved” medicine that was published in 2006. Professors Gary Null and Dorothy Smith, along with doctors Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman and Debora Rasio titled the report “Death by Medicine.”
The researchers found that America’s leading cause of death isn’t heart disease or cancer: its conventional medicine. They found that the iatrogenic death rate in the US (death caused by doctors and/or medical treatments) is 783,936 a year. That’s 84,059 more deaths than those caused by heart disease in 2001 and 230,865 more deaths than those caused by cancer.

A large portion of these deaths are caused by the myriads of side effects from pharmaceutical drugs.  Statins are just one drug that is incredibly overprescribed.  Some of the side effects are muscle wasting, particularly of the heart muscle, severe joint pain, and being much more susceptible to cancer.  Does this sound like the kind of drug that right now about 1/3 of Americans should take?  Well, they are, and new guidelines would make 1/2 of Americans fall under the recommendations for statin prescriptions.

The reason?  The industry makes profits of around 30 Billion dollars per year!!  Strong incentive indeed to ignore the dictum first do no harm!

It is this profit motive that has taken over our medical clinics and hospitals, in fact the entire medical system.  There is blatant overuse of drugs that are loaded with side effects, blatant overuse of medical procedures like x rays and mammograms, and unnecessary surgeries- all ultimately done for increased profits.

The overuse of technology creates a “cascade effect” in treating patients: unnecessary outpatient treatment often leads to more visits, more prescriptions, more hospitalizations and deaths.
X-rays, CT scans, mammograms and other such diagnostics are costly and cumulatively dangerous, yet they are given regularly to soothe patient fears and often lead to unnecessary surgeries.

Also, to underscore the poorly conceived priorities of modern conventional medicine, we only have to look at the food and nutrition provided in a hospital cafeteria: There, you will see the worst possible foods being offered to both medical staff and patients, showing the utter ignorance and disdain nutrition is held in by the medical community.

Probably the most unsafe place to be, the unhealthiest place in the world, is within our modern “health care” institutions, which are actually disease care places, with a focus on disease, not health at all, and an emphasis on treating symptoms of diseases, not the root cause.  Health is not really the end goal they are even looking at!

Your own body is the only thing that can truly heal you, and restore you to health.  And your body doesn’t need drugs to cure itself, your body needs good, nutrient dense foods that supply the raw materials it needs to build your health from the inside out, as it has been doing in nature for millennia.

So, the next time it is recommended to you to go to see the doctor and go through a bunch of expensive tests, say you’ll pass, since first you will DO NO HARM to your health.  And remember the other Hippocratic dictum:

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”

Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #39 Cure your headache or migraine- the paleo way, naturally!

PQTD #39  Cure yourself of Headaches and Migraines forever!

Even if you have suffered from chronic headaches and even migraines for years, it is quite possible to eliminate them, or at the very least minimize them in a completely natural manner.  The key point is to adopt a paleo or ancestral type of diet, eliminating gluten entirely, and sugar as much as possible.  This is the perfect first step, and hopefully you have already done it... if not, this is, as I said the first step.

Primary suspect in this case- GLUTEN!  Bread, pasta, wraps, pizza, donuts, in other words primarily wheat products- your body really doesn’t need them at all, and ever since wheat was genetically altered in the 1960’s and it’s gluten content, particularly certain harmful elements were magnified exponentially. These components of modern wheat gluten are harmful in many ways, including destroying the intestinal vili, and harming the microbes in the gut biome.  Just think of it this way: eating modern wheat products is like pouring acid into your gut lining!

Ironically, ancient versions of wheat, such as Einkorn wheat which is wheat from biblical times, seems to be relatively harmless to the gut, and to our health.  But, given what we’ve just learned, that makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

So, let’s say we’ve eliminated gluten- we have sandwiches made with lettuce wraps instead of modern wheat bread, and otherwise just eat meat, vegetables, a few starches like white rice or ancient grains, and maybe a sweet potato or baked white potato on occasion, along with lots and lots of green vegetables!

The BEST way to incorporate these veggies is by incorporating them in a  paleo type of smoothie as I describe at PaleoJay’s smoothie cafe as the paleo smoothie.  Have one of these smoothies on a daily or near daily basis, and virtually ALL of your nutrient, and micronutrient needs are being met.

And that is another point about headaches- micronutrients are key in preventing deficiencies that supply our brains with what they need.  Good FATS are very, very key, and coconut oil and pastured butter should be included in your daily Paleo smoothie as well.

The last point about headaches and their prevention is stress relief.  The components of this matter include adequate sleep- 8 hours should be the minimum sleep you get per night.  And this should be quality sleep, with total darkness, no TV watching or iPhone viewing in bed before sleep- nothing allowed in the bedroom after bedtime except sleep!

The other matter of stress relief, however, is stress from something otherwise very beneficial- exercise!

Exercise is very crucial in a paleo type of lifestyle, but it should be done within reason; within paleolithic lifestyle principles!  Paleolithic peoples never worked themselves to exhaustion, or to their ultimate limits.  Neither do animals; because if they do, they become PREY.  They are momentarily helpless, and ready for the slaughter.

Same for you- exercise up to 80% or so- well and good.  90% if your life is in danger... NEVER 100%!  Although we live in the modern world, and you won’t be eaten- you will be subject to physical damage, like headaches, muscle strain and damage, and damage to your structure, like spine and tendons.

So there you go: eat well, with high nutrient density, eliminate toxins like modern wheat and soy (another GMO nightmare for your body), nurture your gut health with probiotics like kefir and other fermented foods, sleep long and well, and exercise with intensity, but without insanity...

Enjoy peace, tranquility, long life, and a pain free existence!
