In 1903, DR Thomas A Addison said “The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease”.
More than a century later, the opposite is happening. There is a global decline in morbidity and mortality due to Communicable Diseases, and an increase in the burden of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). We are facing the biggest epidemic of preventable NCDs in human history.
In 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 2/3 of all diseases will be lifestyle diseases. The global epidemic of Obesity, Diabetes Mellitus, Cardiovascular Disease, hypertension, cancer, etc. is related to dietary guidelines.
The fact that diabetes Type-2 is reversible is no longer debatable. Some cancers and refractory epilepsy respond to diet better than any other known treatment modality.
This book takes you through my personal journey to Diabetes Type-2 Reversal, the results of a low-carbohydrate high-fat diet (LCHF) Observational Study, the myths, the various clinical applications, challenges in implementation, Anesthetic considerations, medico-legal aspects, economic impacts, and the future of the LCHF diets.
