Dr Stefan du Toit has been a family physician in a rural Canada for the last 7 years, and previously practised in South Africa also as a family physician.

He has extensive experience in applying these programs in medical practice. Since 2010, he has run group medical appointments with large numbers of patients. With electronic medical record systems he was able to gather relevant data which changed his perspective of the management of chronic disease. He says many the chronic diseases we see nowadays can be effectively managed by just dietary changes. He says common sense should prevail in the management of patients, but this is unfortunately not always backed up by evidence-based medicine.

Address: Diagnosis Diet,
Dr Georgia Ede is a US-based psychiatrist, nutrition writer, researcher and speaker. She became interested in nutrition eight years ago after discovering a new way of eating that completely reversed a number of perplexing health problems including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Migraines and IBS. She became passionate about the connection between food and every aspect of physical and mental health, and began to read and study nutrition intensively in 2007. This experience led her on a quest to understand why the unorthodox diet that restored health is so different from the diet we are taught is healthy. She now operates a virtual consultation service from her base in Massachusetts.
