Dr. Andrea shares the story of how she discovered and ultimately decided to implement the low carb diet in her life.
In this discussion, Drs. Tony and Andrea talk about the power of stress reduction for total health, ‘accidental’ fasting while on a ketogenic diet, how poor metabolic health can have ill effects on the uterus, end organ disease, why excess of insulin production in the body is so often the cause of disease, gynecological problems caused by metabolic disorders for younger and older women, perspectives on why conventional medicine has generally not emphasized lifestyle/dietary intervention as a primary means of treatment, and the role that psychological trauma plays in metabolic disease.
