Pre-registration recommended. Most hunter-gatherer peoples experience natural and biologically appropriate oscillations in their sleep patterns, activity, and nutrient intake with the change of the seasons. A circa-annual rhythm is deeply entwined with our genetic heritage, and we believe that the nearly complete modern departure from that seasonal pattern has contributed to the decline of human health in the industrial age. Furthermore, it is our view that seasonally mismatched nutrition, activity, and sleep patterns can erode long-term health, even if each individual component is technically “Paleo” or ancestrally appropriate. We discuss our Seasonal Model for Health in both "corrective" and "optimal" phases.
