Wellness EQ is a 3-month, step-by-step online programme that Dr van Rensburg developed to teach people what a healthy diet is from a metabolic perspective. The programme includes delicious recipes from natural ingredients, self-monitoring tools, weekly e-mail support as well as one-to-one online chats. Dr Van Rensburg is also author of Eat Well or Die Slowly published in August 2020. After medical school, she worked as a university consultant and researcher for 16 years before joining the pharmaceutical industry in a global position. During this phase of her career, she became acutely aware that the medical profession focused primarily on treating disease symptoms through prescribing medication rather than finding preventative solutions. She began researching preventative medicine. She became aware of misconceptions and misinformation regarding human nutrition in the mainstream media and medical community as important driving forces in increasing modern day lifestyle diseases. With this information, she and her business partner developed a healthy eating programme and tested it on ourselves and close associates over a period of several months.  Wellness EQ Programme is the result of their Read more [...]

    Cape Town specialist physician Dr Hassina Kaje runs a medical practice based on “understanding the patient who has the disease within the context of the disease that the patient has”. Dr Kajee also sees healthy patients wanting to prevent disease. She counsels patients on lifestyle, including diet, nutrition and fasting, based on low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) therapies, as well as stress management, sleep hygiene, relationships and exercise. In short, she counsels her patients on healthy living and ageing well. She changed her medical practice after becoming dissatisfied with the conventional model of “palliative”, chronic disease medicine while she was running the High Care Unit of a prominent Cape Town tertiary hospital. At that time, she came to realise that a well-formulated LCHF diet was a key factor in reversing diabetes and chronic disease. Dr Kajee resigned from hospital work after trying to implement LCHF and becoming overwhelmed by the many acute and acute on chronic medical cases that made her unable to make a substantial difference. She now practises medicine more in line with her personal understanding of integrative chronic disease and obesity reversal practice. Dr Kajee sits on the board of directors of the Noakes Foundation and is co-founder and Read more [...]

    Dr Rimas V Janušonis is a family medicine physician in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the US and uses low-carb diet therapies in his practice at ThedaCare Physicians-Oshkosh. Dr Janušonis speaks from personal experience of the benefit. He struggled with his weight throughout his life, aggravated by the stress of medical school and residency. He had tried the conventional advice to  “eat less and move more” that “is routinely taught as gospel truth” in his profession without success. After routine lab work showed that he had developed metabolic syndrome, that was the “wake-up call he needed” to change his lifestyle and eating habits. He did further reading and research and fully implemented carbohydrate restriction. His metabolic syndrome resolved, he lost weight and has kept it off. It’s still work in progress, he says, but at least he knows he will be around to see his kids (and grandkids) grow up. Results have been so good and sustainable that he felt rejuvenated in his desire to help patients lose weight, improve their health and cardiovascular status, better control their diabetes and even put it into remission.

    Canadian Isabelle Couture is a low-carb, keto coach at Ceto-Solutions, based in Quebec. For most of her life, Isabelle followed “expert” advice to be slim and healthy, both on the nutritional and athletic side. Despite all her efforts, she became morbidly obese and severely depressed. In 2017, with her scientific background in microbiology and immunology, she decided to do her own research into optimum nutrition for health and weight loss. She came across compelling scientific evidence for benefits of low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) and ketogenic diets and changed her eating habits to go with the evidence. She quickly lost weight, has maintained the weight loss, weaned herself off all drugs and no longer has symptoms of depression. Her goal now is to help others who want to regain control of their lives and health, one meal at a time. Isabelle trained as a low-carb, keto coach at Ceto-solutions, affiliated with Dr Evelyne Bourdua-Roy.
