Testimonial: Jumping For The First Time In Years!

 

"Darryl: My self concept about my fitness was altered. Because of you. Inclusivity is one of my deepest held values and always was; way before my body was affected with this dis-ease. I can see that you bring that to your work and I deeply appreciate that."

This was one of the highlights of my time at Paleo f(x) - during my Primal Play session helping Steph focus on what she could do, not on what she couldn't. Watching her jump was an incredible moment and I am happy I left no one behind. Steph has multiple sclerosis (MS).

It's amazing how much we take for granted, falsely idolising those who have 'amazing' movement skills which can lead to underestimating and not appreciating what we ourselves can do.

I love what I do and I hope to spread the "joy of movement" (that we should all experience) to as many people as possible. Thanks for listening.

The Wahls Foundation - Fundraiser at Paleo f(x)

Going to Paleo f(x) this year and want to support a good cause?

As you may or may not know the Board of Directors of The Wahls Foundation is sponsoring a luncheon fundraiser during PaleoFX in Austin this year to raise funds for Dr. Wahls much needed research. Specifically continued work on frozen blood samples she has of patients that have completed her clinical trials.

This research is so needed to validate with science what many of us are already experiencing living a Paleo lifestyle. Dr. Wahls performs all of her studies on humans making costs considerably high. In addition, the National MS Society continues to refuse her valuable funds to support this research making the effort to raise funds extending outside of traditional channels.

Your support is needed to help Dr. Wahls continue her work publishing research findings regarding the power of food, movement and mindfulness following Paleo principles to heal many from autoimmune disorders and much more.

There are a limited number of spaces hoping to keep it intimate for those to really have time to talk with Dr. Wahls.

Maybe consider joining as your contribution is a tax-deductible donation minus the cost of the food. Thank you for your time and consideration on behalf of the BOD of The Wahls Foundation.
