You should have a doctor you consider a learned health partner
Someone you trust
Someone who knows what keto and fasting are
You don’t need a doctor daddy or a medical boss, but you need a health partner
Its not your fault that you got this way, but it is your problem
Like if you meet a drunk driver on the highway, that’s not your fault, but it is your problem
The laws of human nature apply to doctors too:
The law of the instrument, if you have a hammer, every problem is a nail
A doctor’s hammer is his prescription pad
Supplements and real salt make them nervous
A surgeon might want to give you bariatric surgery
The law of remuneration
Doctors have to pay the bottom line, pay the staff, money is important
Doctors might want to make sure you come back
The law of the shortcut
Doctors interrupt, and just give you a prescription
If you make a doctor think, that makes them uncomfortable
If you bring in something from the internet….
A good doctor should be happy that you’re interested in your own health
The law of correlation
When 2 things are tightly correlated, people think that one causes the other
But sometimes this is a coincidence
It happens in medicine all the time
Many nutritional studies show correlation but have nothing in common
Correlation does not mean causation
A big lie is easier to believe than small lie
The cover of time, tom brokaw and tv telling the same lie, means, it must be true, right?
The echo of the lie
Some health advice has changed,
But people still keep telling the old advice.
When you’ve heard the same lie over and over, you eventually believe it
Doctors have to uphold the community of care
They have to give the same advice of all the other doctors out there.
They don’t want to lose their medical license
Doctors never get in trouble for putting patients on statins
For 1000 years, bleeding and using leaches was the standard of care
Lets figure it out! The Fasting Motivation podcast is not medical advice.
