Is the diet necessarily meat-laden? What foods are no-no's? What foods are encouraged? How do you measure whether your body is switching from carb-dependency to fat adaptation? Is the diet safe? Does it require professional supervision to implement? Click HERE for part 2.

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.

One of the Worst Treated Conditions in Western Medicine, Part 1
May 15, 2018
Dr. Sarah Myhill is one of Britain’s foremost experts on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), or as it’s sometimes referred to there, Myalgic Encephalitis (ME). In her book, “Sustainable Medicine,” she claims that “CFS is one of the worst treated conditions in Western Medicine.” Patients are sometimes told to just exercise, or undergo psychotherapy, to recover. Myhill vociferously disagrees, asserting: “Its mitochondria, not hypochondria!” She dismisses the notorious PACE study, which had become the standard of care for CFS sufferers with “graded exercise,” as scientific fraud. How do you repair the mitochondria and boost their function? Why is the Paleo-Ketogenic Diet central to recovery? What does the ATP profile test tell us about mitochondrial function? Dr. Myhill’s pioneering studies document objective improvements in patients’ cellular energetics, in addition to subjective reports of symptom amelioration. What are the five basic supplements she recommends? Why are support of thyroid and adrenal function critical? What role for sleep? How do infections undermine mitochondrial efficiency? Why is detoxification so important for some CFS sufferers? How do heat treatments and chelation help? Dr. Myhill continues to campaign for the rights of CFS patients to be properly diagnosed and treated in the face of what she terms “systemic medical abuse.” Click HERE for part 2.
