As many of you know, PrimalKind is my own personal recipe for the ultimate nutritionally complete superfood smoothie & PrimalKind is more than just a business to me, it is my personal passion project. However I wanted to share a little more of my personal background with all our PrimalKind friends & followers, to help explain why we’re Sorry We’re Closed Temporarily.
I really like the concept of nutritionally complete meals, however as I learnt more about nutrition I found myself aligning with the science behind Paleo & Keto nutrition, especially with the science supporting a whole range of health benefits, from reversing the symptoms of type 2 diabetes (or in my case reversing the symptoms of pre-diabetes), to the latest studies highlighting how following a healthy keto diet can help improve longevity & health span (aka living healthier for longer), through to helping with a whole range of medical benefits (& this is normally where the story ends, however not today).
One of the main medical benefits for me following a Paleo / Keto diet is the studies with cancer. This will come as a surprise to many of the people around me, but in 2015 I was actually diagnosed with cancer & had it surgically removed. I actually find it very hard to talk about my own experience with cancer, even with people close to me, so I guess I will have a lot of explaining to do, but I think I’m ready to talk about it now.
I have learnt from my experience & this has been one of the main driving factors for myself studying nutrition. I secretly like to think of PrimalKind as my own kind of Breaking Bad story, however instead of creating Heisenberg’s blue ice, after I was diagnosed with cancer I wanted to create the ultimate nutritionally complete smoothie. Initially for my own health, but it has quickly become popular with the truly health conscious & nutritionally educated customers, from Bio-hackers, to Nutritionists, to Surgeons & many others, & this has helped me grow an organic business that I’m truly proud of.
However I will now have to take a back seat with PrimalKind & re-focus my attention on my own health. I haven’t been feeling 100% for a little while now & I’ve just put this down to my busy life, working a full time job & running PrimalKind after hours (which has pretty much become a full time job itself). However after a recent check-up with my doctor, I have now been diagnosed with a type of colon cancer (a different type of cancer than I had previously). I have now started going through the process to have it removed, however it has become clear that I will need to spend a lot more time getting my health back on-track.
Unfortunately this means I will need to temporarily pause both my full time job & PrimalKind, to focus on getting better & to take the necessary time required to adjust to my new lifestyle. However I’m positive this will be one of my driving factors for getting better as soon as possible, so I can get back to my passion project of creating PrimalKind.
I would truly like to thank everyone for their support to date & understanding through this temporary time in my life. I hope to be back on top of my health & back to running PrimalKind as soon as possible, & I’ll be sure to let you all know once everything is back to normal again.
PS I still have a little PrimalKind for Him in stock, please email me if you’d like to get them? Thanks.
