Thank you for tuning in for another episode of Life’s Best Medicine. Professor Tim Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 21,000 times in scientific literature and has an H-index of 77. He has won numerous awards over the years and made himself available on many editorial boards. He now devotes a majority of his time to promoting the low carbohydrate high fat diet, especially for those with insulin resistance, and to raising funds for Eat Better South Africa! and research through The Noakes Foundation. He is also the Chief Medical Director of the Nutrition Network, an education, connection and learning platform founded by The Noakes Foundation in partnership with an esteemed team of doctors and scientists.

In this discussion, Dr. Brian and Prof. Tim talk about the nature of healthy scientific progress, lessons from the dietary patterns of primitive people groups, the powerful forces behind the propagation of false nutritional and health information, the growing loss of faith in the medical system, the fight to change the standard of care in medicine, being open to having your mind changed for the sake of truth, the value of being able to approach a scientific problem from a creative mindset, and Prof. Noakes’ current scientific work.

Life’s Best Medicine According to Tim: “There’s no question—it’s my wife. We live for each other because we would hate if one of us died and the other was left behind.”

Thank you for listening. Have a blessed day and stay healthy!
