Low Carb Listing Category: DOCTORS
Dr Antti Heikkilä is an orthopaedic surgeon at Eira Hospital in Finland. He is also specialised in trauma surgery. His special interest has always been the back and still is. He realised that surgery is a very bad method to handle back pains as the spine is a whole functional unit. He says the pain originates from the tension of the deep spinal supporting muscles. It´s mainly a psychosomatic phenomenon. Dr Heikkilä also soon became frustrated with all those leg amputations due to diabetes. Twenty years ago, he became involved with nutrition and left surgery. SInce then he has been handling pain patients with his hands and diabetes patients with nutrition. He says low-carb is not a new idea. It was a standard procedure when he graduated early 1970.
