Early Challenge

Pau’s mother had cancer when she gave birth to him. Paul was in and out of hospitals as a child and into adulthood.

Ah-hah Moment

Paul noticed that when he was on antibiotics it was reducing his running times and it seemed to be getting worse every year. Paul would see doctors and just get more drugs that wouldn’t help him. This led him to pursue alternative types of medicine  such as teas and herbs. This wasn’t as helpful as he thought but later thought that, “these herbs are just like foods so why not just eat food as medicine”. Paul first tried the Paleo Diet which did show some improvements, and led him down the path of using diet as way to improve your health.
