Located in beautiful Malibu, California, The Primal Blueprint Luxury Retreat is designed to catapult you into your new Primal lifestyle. In two full days and three nights we will walk you through your Primal transformation. By immersing you in real world scenarios, guiding you step-by-step through Primal eating, exercise, and lifestyle strategies, you will leave the weekend with a complete arsenal of knowledge to immediately and seamlessly integrate this philosophy into your life. Make a commitment to going Primal for a 2013 New Year’s resolution. What better place to make it happen than in Malibu with Mark Sisson and his two leading fitness expert employees, Adam and Vanessa Lambert!

Hosted in one of Malibu’s most exquisite estates (see photo slideshow below), your luxury weekend will be something you will always remember. Just a short walk from the beach, nestled at the foot of a scenic canyon, our villa serves as the gateway to some of the best hiking trails in Malibu. This retreat is limited to 12 attendees and is primarily designed for couples, as we are limited to only 6 bedrooms and each room must be double occupancy. Each couple will have their own bedroom and bathroom for the utmost privacy during the weekend. If you are intent upon attending the retreat solo, we will make efforts to get you sharing a room with another single guest of the same sex.Email to discuss this option. If we have a potential match, we will and connect you and your prospective roommate so you can feel totally comfortable prior to your trip. Furthermore, your weekend comes equipped with a private chef and two dedicated coaches. Your coaches, Adam and Vanessa Lambert, will stay with you the entire weekend and will be your primary point of contact throughout.

Mark Sisson will join in for two evening meals and discussion time. This is your opportunity to have dinner and chat with the man responsible for the Primal movement.

Paleo Diet Challenges & Solutions IV from Chris Kresser

DECON1

Please read part Ipart II and part III of this series if you haven’t already.

The final challenge to adopting a Paleo diet is impaired detox capacity. If you can’t detox properly, even the healthiest Paleo diet won’t be enough to resolve your symptoms.

The liver is the main organ of detoxification. It’s primary job is to convert toxins — most of which are fat-soluble — into water soluble compounds that can then be excreted. But there’s so much more to detoxification than the liver.

The list of symptoms caused by impaired detox capacity is nearly endless, but in my work with patients I’ve observed the following common patterns:

  • Hormone imbalances (especially in women). Defects in detoxification cause hormones to become partially metabolized, blocking the action of active hormones and throwing off natural feedback mechanisms.
  • Skin breakouts and rashes. The skin is the largest organ in the body, and the most likely to be affected by detox issues.
  • Energy problems. One important aspect of detoxification, called methylation, plays a key role in cellular energy production.
  • Depression and mood disorders. Methylation is also crucial for proper neurotransmitter synthesis.
  • Brain fog and cognitive decline. Proper methylation is required for the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that profoundly affects mental clarity.

As you can see, there’s not much that goes on in the body that doesn’t depend on healthy detoxification. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that your liver is functioning as efficiently as possible.
