Paleo, Integrative and Wellness Book list

These are the books which formed the basis of the Paleo Nutrition and Primal Living Course and have supported my own wellness journey. I really love reading and empowering myself with knowledge. Books are a treasure that you can keep and often when you are just starting out you may not understand everything in a book, but when you come back to it maybe a year later it all makes sense. This is the learning journey! I hope this list is a help to you and l have tried to put them into categories but some do overlap.
