In brief: Western & functional

Low carb diet- Western medicine mostly depend on pharmaceuticals for treatment The other reason is by waiting for double blinded research to prove facts take a long time.


When Dr.Atkins came out with his diet Dietitians were severely critical of it. Long term use of PPIs- omeprazole etc can cause
several side effects including osteoporosis. Visit drhoffman.com
