This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Dr Bret Scher, medical director over at Diet Doctor, a very popular low carb internet resource that helps thousands of people optimise their diet to improve their health status. A cardiologist in training, Mikki and Bret talk about how he discovered low carb, the results he sees in his practice and how his low carb approach has changed over the years. They also discuss what ‘evidence based medicine’ actually means, and discuss the important blood markers and tests that you can get to determine your heart health. An awesome conversation, Bret is the podcast host of the Diet Doctor podcast and is brilliant at relaying information in a way everyone understands.   

Dr. Bret Scher is a board certified cardiologist and lipidologist practicing in San Diego and licensed to practice in seven states. He’s the full-time Medical Director, writes medical blogs, reviews guides and news stories for medical accuracy and hosts The Diet Doctor Podcast.

Dr. Scher’s main focus is on preventing and reversing heart disease naturally rather than putting patients on medication and performing surgery. When he started his own preventative wellness center he was introduced to the whole low-carb world. Being a bit skeptical at first, he was soon convinced by the benefits of a low-carb diet.

In Dr. Scher’s many patients suffering from heart disease, he found that there was a big overlap with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. It was all very interrelated. When he started treating his patients who suffered from heart disease with a low-carb diet, he could quickly see signs of improvements or even full reversal in all of these diseases.
Dr. Scher has also obtained specialized certifications in functional medicine, nutrition, personal training, and behavior modification.
He is also the author of the book Your best health ever!, and he has a blog and website at lowcarbcardiologist.com.
