Dr David Unwin 🤩 special Part 1- @lowcarbGP l Ep. #023
What a privilege this interview with Dr David Unwin was to record. The time flew by and after 2 hours talking we had to stop as other diary events were clashing. However I could have listened to Dr Unwin all day long!
Dr David Unwin is a really special person. He is someone who first reflected on his own career and then changed his whole thinking on the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. This has culminated in the remission of many peoples Type 2 Diabetes and saved the NHS £57,000 a year on drug budgets.
David Unwin joins me in this first part of our chat to share his own experiences of health over the last 40 years and how he has seen society change to becoming more ill because of the food we eat. We also discussed evolution and diet, how he had a Damascus like meeting that was the catalyst to a paradigm shift in his practice. We get to also hear the thinking behind how David Unwin helps a patient to help themselves and an insight into the care that he has for his patients. This is a really wonderful conversation and I think you'll get as much out of it as I did.

Dr David Unwin 😃 special Part 2- @lowcarbGP l Ep. #024
Welcome back to part 2 of the Dr David Unwin special podcast episode. Last time we heard how Dr Unwin would approach a conversation with a patient about changing their lifestyle. This time we kick off with a roll-play where I play the patient and Dr David Unwin plays the role of…Dr David Unwin! We also discussed the societal beliefs about exercise to lose weight compared to diet, and how cruel the way that many judge heavy people when in fact they need help. We also roll played how he builds hope in his patients and that they need to be en the full pros of giving up carbs.
I then shared with David Unwin some common addictions and we discussed why it appears to be controversial to say sugar and carbohydrate is addictive. Dr Unwin shared his own food issues with biscuit eating and how moderation is a false term because having an issue food is a real challenge for many of us.

Dr Aseem Malhotra - The 21 Day Immunity plan - when two pandemics collide 🤔 @DrAseemMalhotra l Ep. #027
Here it is, the full length episode with Dr Aseem Malhotra. Aseem has just written and published his book 'The 21 Day Immunity Plan' which is so relevant to the two pandemics hitting the world right now - Covid-19 and Metabolic Syndrome.
We discuss his book, the impact on life expectancy from medicine vs public health reform, why the establishment fights back, Devil's Advocate and your questions.
I loved this conversation and at the end we discussed one of my absolute favourite topics - democracy and what we need to do to protect it.

Graham Phillips, the pharmacist who gave up drugs 🥼💊 @grahamsphillips l Ep. #035
Hello and welcome to this special episode with Graham Phillips, the pharmacist who gave up drugs. I first came across Graham on Twitter and couldn't wait to have him on the show. Graham explained to me the biochemistry of our body and how metabolic syndrome occurs and can lead to the start of type two diabetes.
In this episode he not only explains his journey and how he decided to completely change the way that he looked at our health, but he also realised that in many cases drugs are used to manage and suppress symptoms rather than getting at the root cause of the problem - that being what we eat. He now runs a programme to help others on their journey called Pro Longevity.
