“I believe lifestyle and nutrition are always the bedrock upon which all chronic medical management should be founded”

Great news for the LCHF | Banting revolution

Professor Tim Noakes testifying before the HPCSA.

“Professor Tim Noakes was being used by the Health Professions Council of SA (HPCSA) as a “guinea pig” to test waters on guidelines for the conduct of health professionals on social media, which did not exist.”
