Hello! My name is Michelle DeToy and I am the publisher of The Paleo Hippie. Having come of age in the 70’s I am a hippie at heart. Peace, love, living off the land and of course the bohemian fashions still resonates deep in this hippie soul. Seriously, my dream as a young girl was moving to California, joining a commune, going to music festivals and writing poetry. I didn’t do any of those things but hey, there’s still time, right?
My passion for the Paleo lifestyle as with countless others began with a health crisis. I was experiencing severe stomach issues, headaches and fibro pain every day, all day. I was miserable and began my quest to find healing through any means possible. Traditional medicine only offered pharmaceuticals to treat my symptoms so I looked into holistic health. Being a researcher by nature I spent and still spend countless hours researching holistic solutions to common health problems. I will be forever grateful to a girlfriend for introducing me to the paleo diet. Within 30 days of practicing paleo my inflammation had decreased. My stomach issues subsided, my headaches went away as did most of my fibro pain. My experience proved to me that food is the best medicine possible
Although the paleo diet was the single most important lifestyle change I made, all my research into holistic health supports the Paleo lifestyle very well. It is very rare that I use any OTC medicines. My medicine cabinet consists of high quality essential oils, herbs and supplements.
The contents of this website/blog are my legacy, first and foremost to my family and friends. I love you all to the moon and back! Secondly to the friends I haven’t met yet. I pray you find something amidst these pages to encourage, inspire and educate you in becoming the best version of yourself in mind, body and spirit.
In Peace & Health
The Paleo Hippie
