Dietary Counseling Tantrums

I am a Family Practice Physician.  I spent eleven years of my life training to become a physician certified in Family Medicine.  But, I found this wasn’t enough.  I struggled to treat the “diseases of civilization” that arise from society, our Western diet and lifestyle.

I, also, specialize in dietary weight/obesity management and low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets.  I actually spent an additional three years obtaining specialized training and board certification in this field.   When you add all the training and my years of experience in practice together, I’ve spent over 25 years perfecting this art of medicine.

Because of this training, I have been very blessed that people from all over the world travel to Surprise, Arizona, to see me for weight management, dietary advise, and counseling on the diseases of civilization.  I’ve been amazed that simple changes in diet halt and reverse obesity, arthritis, diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.  The list goes on and on …

But I find a disturbing mindset pervasive through the community and the nation:

Kidney stones are really just gout’s wicked step-child and both are usually found in the insulin resistant patient.  Learn why as we spend a short 10 minutes talking about how both types of kidney stones are formed and why.   Uric acid stones & calcium oxalate stones are siblings with different mechanisms of formation but, oh, how they love hanging out in your kidney.
