  • A GP’s experience with managing chronic disease
  • Nutritional Ketosis
  • The debate around LCHF and Keto
  • The clinical and practical applications of LCHF and Keto chronic disease

The course is ideal for general practitioners, dietitians and nutritionists, allied health professionals, coaches or driven learners who want to understand the latest about LCHF and Keto from world experts.

The course usually takes approximately 12-15 hours to complete. It consists of 5x approximately 90-minute modules, with each module requiring a further 90 minutes of reading and reflective practice.

This course is accredited by the RNZCGP for 15 hours CME, and similarly counts for 15 hours CPD for nurses, physios, and pharmacists.

We built this course because when low-fat dietary guidelines were introduced 40 years ago, they were based on flawed science. Now we know better. Low carbohydrate healthy fat (LCHF) nutrition and Ketogenic diets can and do address many of the root cause of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. This course shares real-world clinical examples.
