Paul Saladino Advice

Advice you can trust

Most diets are lying to you. They’re not as good for you as they say. That’s a bummer because you are what you eat. So if you’re not feeling your best, the foods you’re eating are likely to blame.

As a functional medicine practitioner, Paul knows firsthand the remarkable impact of cutting out the junk foods, and even plant-based foods, and replacing them all with high-quality animal products. A growing number of people on the carnivore diet report improved mental, decreased joint pain, resolution of autoimmune disease, and better skin health. Join them.

What My Clients Say



My health problems (gut, autoimmune, fatigue) took a serious turn for the worse. After working with Dr. Paul, things have totally turned around! Read his posts. He’s constantly going through research and furthering his education on his own time and was able to provide me options when conventional (and even some naturopathic) doctors had no idea what to do with me.



I worked with Dr. Saladino for issues with low energy and depression, and since implementing his recommendations, I have seen significant improvements. I used to come home after work too tired and unmotivated to make dinner and catch up with my wife, but that’s not the case anymore. I have more energy for my physically demanding job of routesetting and more motivation for my climbing. I feel much more myself.



Paul doesn’t provide a belief system (paleo, vegan, keto, etc) but instead, uses blood work and genetic testing to find out what YOU specifically need. He can look at your biochemistry, and tell you what you need to do to make your vehicle of a body to perform like a Porsche instead of a Civic. Give him a call, take a look under the hood. Your viewpoint on nutrition will never be the same, I promise you.



After hearing Dr. Saladino on several podcasts, I decided to set up an online consultation with him. He is extremely familiar with the literature and is a great myth debunker. He’s made sure that I had a complete understanding of my labs and has put me at ease where some (lipid) values were elevated as he’s looked at the totality of my results rather than focusing in on only the elevated Total and LDL Cholesterol numbers. He’s made suggestions to help me tweak my “nose to tail” 90+ percent meat based diet. At 68 years of age, I feel the best I have in the last thirty years, reversing metabolic syndrome and losing 65 pounds. Deciding to work with him has been one of the best moves I’ve made to improve my health.
