The connection between the Ketogenic Diet and the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) has fascinated me. Dr. Rho supports that connection in this very informative interview. Sit back and relax while Dr. Rho tells you how you can improve your health by diet.
Dr. Rho’s Elevator Pitch: The primary lesson from the ketogenic diet is that a simple alteration in the type of foods we eat is the basis for preventing disease, treating disease and is something that can be done pragmatically without billions of dollars and the decades needed for drug development. Fats are not bad. Through the unfounded philosophy that fats are bad, we have created a health problem throughout the world.
Dr. Rho attended Cumming School of Medicine at University of Calgary. He is Professor of the Departments of Paediatrics, Clinical Neurosciences, Physiology and Pharmacology and Section Chief, Paediatric Neurology, Alberta Children’s Hospital.
