Primal Movers is a vision of the human species performing at its best. It takes an evolutionary perspective on issues relating to the physiological makeup of our bodies and the way they direct our mindset.
As an anthropologist specializing in sporting practice and embodied experience, my aim is holistic, critical and simple: Eliminate the agents of disease and destructive thought from your life, get active, socialize and think longevity.
Activities involve maximizing the quality of movement, food and thought through an adherence to principles often neglected as we succumb to the various !diseases of civilization!. These include not only toxic foodstuffs that line the supermarkets like sugar and refined carbohydrates, but also hidden political agendas of nation states, who are swayed by the lobbying power of pharmacutical and agricultural companies.
The human body is NOT genetically adapted to run on sugar and carbohydrate, and is breaking down because of this. Hospitals are being inundated with stomach, cancer, heart, and stress related illnesses that were not around before the modern Western lifestyle decided that grains, sugars, ignorance and low intensity cardio training became the norm.
Shockingly enough, we are constantly told by brainwashed media and official outlets to continue this path to destruction, and are too apathetic to change course. Those benefitting are those making profit from illness. Who are the wealthiest people in Norway? Not those hard working primary producers hauling the fish out of the sea, or raising animals on pasture. No, the owners of the main grocery chains filling society full of toxins, all at the highest possible profit margins.
Being a primal mover is not meant to be hard. It takes courage to learn what these agents of harm are all about, change our ways, and teach our children to know what health is all about. It means going against the grain, literally.

It is not intended to be followed without proper consultation or thought, only as a guideline for how to get healthy and stay that way. I hope to inspire and provoke, maybe amuse, but take no responsibility for consequences of actions resulting from the implementation of these ideas.
But feeling better from sleeping well and avoiding gluten is hardly a poor consequence of reading my musings.
