    Mind blown! You have to read this book!

    I have just finished listening to Dr. Jason Fung’s newest book, The Cancer Code, just released five days ago on Nov 10. This is book three of his Wellness Code series, following The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code. Dr. Fung is a nephrologist (kidney specialist) in the Toronto area who has deeply analytical mind for unravelling medical mysteries. He looks way past the surface of symptoms and diagnostic test results and delves deep into the root causes of disease, particularly the “chronic diseases of civilization” that are ravaging us now, but were relatively uncommon before the last hundred years or so. He has turned his attention this time to…

Ask me how I know… I have been listening to a podcast called Peak Human and just finished Part 45- a discussion with Dr. Miki Ben-Dor PhD from Israel, about “Humans Eating Fatty Meat for All of History”. It was a fascinating look at the evidence for our ancestral eating pattern being that of a high level carnivore. This is real biological science, not conjecture or…

    Deep-diving into the Research

    There has been an exciting development in my mission to get the word out about the power of using a ketogenic diet and fasting to impact on cancer treatment and side effects of chemotherapy. I have been approached to be a lecturer for an online learning program aimed at health professionals, such as doctors, dietitians and pharmacists. It is beyond exciting to be listed as part of the faculty of a program like this, with a potentially worldwide reach to get my message out there. More details will be forthcoming in the next couple of months… I have been asked to share my story and the research that led me…
