Re: The Ketogenic Diet: A Neurologist’s Warning

No sources cited. No evidence presented. Just an opinion on a plant based website. I'm unswayed.

Denver area practitioner suggestions/recommendations?

I'm asking for my sister who is looking for a functional medicine doctor in the Denver area. Bredesen training or similar philosophy highly preferred.

Thanks in advance!
