Topics covered in the podcast
Resistance in healthcare with keto
Amanda and I start the podcast by talking about some of the resistance we’ve had as nurse practitioners when treating patients. However, that being said, it seems that keto is becoming more widely accepted because of patient’s success. How can anyone argue with good lab values and someone feeling good?
Keto for Type 2 Diabetes
If you have type 2 diabetes, you may want to consider learning how to heal your body with keto. A ketogenic diet will serve you very well if you have high blood sugar and increased insulin requirements. If you or someone you know suffers from type 2 diabetes, consider the keto diet as long as it is okay with a healthcare professional.
In this episode, we also talk about fasting and how it can help treat disease. We also talk about how to deal with hunger during fasting. Overall, fasting is a muscle that takes work to improve over time. Listen to this podcast to learn some great tips.
