Adam Kavanagh Bio and Background:

Kavanagh was a coal miner for many years, operating heavy machinery. However, after nearly eight years of shift work, poor diet, and life stresses, he faced a health crisis.

Struggling with anxiety and depression, Adam discovered alternative healing methods. He adopted the caveman diet (also known as the paleo diet) and focused on getting back to basics.

His childhood memories of spending time in nature—fishing, catching yabbies (crustaceans), and exploring the bush—inspired him to reconnect with the outdoors.

Adam’s health improved significantly, and he decided to leave the mining industry. He embarked on a journey of adventure and survival.
