ENCORE: Patient Empowerment, Part 1
July 9, 2020
Dr. William Davis, author of the best-seller “Wheat Belly,” argues for patient empowerment in a new book, “Undoctored: Why Healthcare Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor." Dr. Davis tells the story of his transformation from a successful interventional cardiologist to an outspoken critic of medical orthodoxy; Why does he urge people to eschew not only wheat, but all grain products? What’s wrong with gluten-free baked goods? Why take issue with mainstream nutritionists who urge “moderation”? What’s meant by “undoctoring”? Why has the term “healthcare” become an oxymoron? Why is cholesterol oversold as a predictor of heart risk? Can heart disease be managed without statins? Are coronary stents overdone? Dr. Davis highlights the benefits of a unique probiotic—lactobacillus reuteri—and offers a recipe for a gut-repleting yogurt that restores youthful appearance, strengthens bones, and combats muscle wasting. What role for dietary supplements? For exercise? Why follow Dr. Davis’ call to become an “unpatient”? Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: Challenging Cholesterol Phobia, Part 1
January 21, 2020
Dr. David Diamond, a Ph.D. biologist and Professor of Neuroscience, is an outspoken critic of modern medicine’s obsession with lowering cholesterol. His personal experience reversing his obesity and sky-high triglycerides with a low-carb, high-fat diet led him to challenge low-fat diet orthodoxy. He contends that many of the studies justifying widespread statin use are riven with “statistical deception.” In fact, he argues, high LDL cholesterol is only minimally associated with cardiovascular risk, and is a known survival factor in senior adults. Additionally, the significant side effects of cholesterol-lowering drugs have been minimized. Click HERE for part 2.
