I haven't been able to find a paleo-friendly doctor here in Hawaii and would like to see someone while I am in LA for the ancestral health symposium. Can anyone recommend to me a doctor? I will probably get bloodwork done here so I can bring him/her the results and figure out my health (likely liver) problems and why I can't lose fat despite being paleo for 2 years and low-carb for 3 1/2 years. I know about the low carb doctors website but would first like to see if anyone can recommend first hand. I have put off buying my plane ticket so I can accommodate to a doctors appt and would like to buy my ticket this weekend. Thank you!
This is too late to help you Danielle, but perhaps it can be of use to any future people searching for this answer.

He is Hayley's grandfather, and is totally in tune with the Paleo lifestyle (he wrote the introduction to our paleo cookbook). Anyone who is looking for a forward thinking doctor with knowledge of Paleo, he is your guy!
I would suggest a chiropractor, though he's definitely not a typical chiropractor. He specializes in putting people's sacrum in alignment and I can absolutely attest to the difference in overall health (mood, sleep, digestion, going to the bathroom, overall vibrance) when I'm in and when I'm out of alignment. He's also been a long time paleo practitioner who is very knowledgeable with blood tests, etc.

I'd also love to know if anyone has seen Dr. Susser or any other paleo-oriented docs in the L.A. area! There are a few listed on the Paleo Physicians Network but most are chiropractors and I'm looking for a practitioner who can incorporate medical (stool, blood) testing as well.
