Clinical Focus: Low-carb diets increase your risk of dying—Really? Part 1
August 23, 2018
A new Lancet study purports to demonstrate that popular low-carb diets are unhealthy and dangerous. But the study is rife with errors that call its conclusions into doubt. Plus, it’s contradicted by other previous, even-larger studies. We’ll take a deep-dive on the Lancet study’s methodological flaws, and learn why it’s a disservice to those tens of millions of sufferers of metabolic disorders worldwide, curable through carefully administered low-carb diets. Why, then, is an uncritical press so willing to swallow these conclusions hook-line-and-sinker? Click HERE for part 2.

Patient Empowerment, Part 1
July 24, 2018
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.
