Keto and Low Carb Nutrition - The Therapeutic Benefits

Professional Training in Ketogenic Nutrition & Treatment

Poor diet contributes to more disease and death globally than physical inactivity, smoking and alcohol combined. As cardiologist, Dr Aseem Malhorta contends, the roots of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease are firmly embedded in the food environment.
This 1-month online course will arm you with the confidence, knowledge and key practice techniques using the latest science and clinical trials in this field. This is an advanced course for experienced health practitioners.
The low-fat dietary guidelines were based on flawed science when they were introduced 40 years ago. We now know better. Low carbohydrate, healthy fat (LCHF) nutrition and/or ketogenic diets can and do address many of the root cause of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Are you ready to truly make a difference to the health outcomes of your patients or clients?

"My GP practice has been offering a low-carb option since 2013. An unexpected bonus is that we now spend 40,000 pounds less per year on drugs for diabetes alone and with careful medical supervision we have now managed to help 59 patients achieve drug-free diabetes remission".

- Dr David Unwin, FRCGP, RCGP National Champion for Collaborative Care and Support Planning in Obesity and Diabetes, RCGP Clinical Expert in Diabetes, partner Norwood Surgery, Southport UK.
