An almost total lack of nutritional education in med school and medicine in general is what led Dr. Michael Klaper to form Moving Medicine Forward to stress the critical role nutrition plays in healing chronic disease.
When given proper nutrition, Dr. Klaper has seen firsthand the body's ability to heal itself, especially from chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases -- which form the majority of ailments and causes of death.
All of these disease states are largely caused by diet and lifestyle and can generally be significantly reduced or eliminated.
Listen as Dr. Klaper joins Dr. Friedman to discuss why nutrition is simultaneously so important -- and oftentimes so confusing. He also shares information on certain diet trends, including the keto diet (which he considers worrisome).
