The Benefits of High-Fat, Low-Carb Dieting, Part 1
December 17, 2020
"The Case for Keto" by Gary Taubes, the science writer and investigative journalist who’s famous for writing a game-changing 2002 NY Times Magazine article entitled “What if it’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?” The Case for Keto traces the history of diet theories pertaining to obesity, and argues we’ve taken a major wrong turn in our approaches. Instead of following the science, we’ve demonized fat and animal protein, and urged patients to follow a carbohydrate-rich, plant-based diet while exercising to “burn off calories”; this paradigm has failed miserably, with ever-escalating percentages of Americans overweight and developing metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Drawing from research, interviews with hundreds of experts, and his own personal experience, Taubes describes the benefits of high-fat, low-carb dieting. He explains why insulin metabolism is crucial to our understanding of why people can’t mobilize fat and experience hunger on most diet plans. He emphasizes that it is important to distinguish between diabetic ketoacidosis which is a medical emergency and ketosis which is a normal physiologic state. Taubes addresses some of the common stumbling blocks encountered by people undertaking keto diets. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: One of the Worst Treated Conditions in Western Medicine, Part 1
December 3, 2020
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.

ENCORE–Clinical Focus: Low-carb diets increase your risk of dying—Really? Part 1
August 13, 2020
A 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.
