Dr. Jim LaValle says "we are way over-medicated" as a society
Sometimes I feel like there are two parallel universes going on simultaneously. The first one is full of traditionally-trained doctors who feel like the best first answer to any health problem is a prescription drug. The second one is full of naturopathic physicians who embrace the nutritional therapies for dealing with just about any concern about health. Both exist, but can both be the very best method for treating disease?
In Episode 142 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," we speak with Dr. Jim LaValle who is a pharmacist, nutritionist, and natural medicine doctor who chooses to treat his patients through dietary changes that involve a low-carb lifestyle change (not a diet, as you will hear him repeat over and over again). What a refreshing voice of sanity in an increasingly insane world! You're gonna get excited about livin' la vida low-carb anew as you listen to Dr. LaValle in today's podcast.
