  • The clinical and practical applications of LCHF and Keto chronic disease

The course is ideal for the General Practitioner, Dietitian/Nutritionist, Allied Health Professional, Coach or driven learner who wants to understand the latest about LCHF and Keto from world experts.

The course usually takes approx 12-15 hours. It consists of 5 x approx 90 minute modules, with each module requiring a further 90 minutes of reading and/or reflective practice.

This course is accredited by the RNZCGP for 15 hours CME, and similarly counts for 15 hours CPD for nurses, physios, and pharmacists.

We built this course because 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. This course shares real-world clinical examples.
