W: LowCarbCardiologist.com

As a practicing cardiologist for over 15 years, I have seen where our medical establishment fails to help those who need us most. We are too narrow-minded in our teachings and our practice. That is why I am so thankful I found LCHF and intermittent fasting. With these as additional tools, I have been able to finally reach and help those who I could not before. Now it is my mission to teach these tools to as many people as possible, to help each and everyone of you achieve your best health ever.
