  • Profile

    Dr Stefanus “Stef” Snyman is a South African occupational medicine practitioner in Somerset West. Dr Snyman’s passion is to help reverse insulin resistance (IR) in the workplace and the risk it poses to employee health, functioning and productivity. He is an experienced advisor to companies to help address these and other risks in the workplace.He works in an interprofessional team to solve complex problems related to IR and other non-communicable diseases using a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach. The foundation of his team’s approach is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle to reduce and even wean persons off chronic medications and to optimise supplementation and exercise. The team collaborates with a pharmacologist, physiotherapist, psychologist, clinical pastoral counsellor and occupational therapist.
    Dr Snyman also heads an international team developing a state-of-the-art mobile app, called I Can Function, to help reverse insulin resistance. He believes that this innovation will “totally revolutionise the way patients are managed by giving the power back to them to navigate islands of care and to utilise cutting edge technology to get support”.
    Anyone with conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, burnout and depression is welcome to contact him. He consults at workplaces or via Zoom or Skype, after which his interprofessional team will co-design a holistic plan based on the individual’s needs.
