Cardiologist and low-carb weight loss instructor Dr. Lowell Gerber is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
Just a few short years ago, Dr. Lowell Gerber was still mired in conventional wisdom regarding the role nutrition plays in health, especially heart health. But something kept bothering him about a treatment that seemed too heavily focused on prescribing more and more drug therapies like statins and less interested in getting to the root causes of the issue to begin with. That's when he came across the work of a fellow physician from Lawrence, Kansas named Dr. Mary Vernon and her Innovative Metabolic Solutions program teaching medical professionals about the basics of using carbohydrate-restriction therapeutically with patients to help them with obesity, diabetes and many other chronic diseases. Dr. Gerber has been a sponge soaking in all of this information and has rekindled his passion and love for making patients healthier than ever before. Jimmy discusses all of the changes that have happened since Dr. Gerber found livin' la vida low-carb in past few years and what his big plans are to continue educating others about this healthy nutritional approach!
