“Treating symptoms is like removing the batteries from a smoke alarm and ignoring the fire.” – Dr Mark Hyman.
Is it ever ok to prescribe rice bubbles, white bread and creamed corn to a patient? In this “rant” video, Vicky shares a story of a patient that she’s recently seen who was diagnosed with gastroparesis, a condition that results in delayed gastric emptying. She developed this as a consequence of her chronic uncontrolled diabetes. A low fibre diet is a suitable nutrition strategy for this condition, however there is a much healthier way. Especially in this case where there is an underlying disease (diabetes) that would be made worse with highly processed foods that are predominantly high in carbohydrates. Watch this video to discover why Vicky is so frustrated with the current “health care” model that focuses on treating symptoms and not the individual.
