Information for your doctor
Our team have supported many patients safely through the diet and have seen great results. That is why we are keen to help many more. Not all doctors are aware of the research on which this program is based or experienced in implementing it. Our doctors are very happy to communicate directly with your usual GP via email to discuss any questions they may have. Additionally, your usual doctor is welcome to access the “Health Professionals” tab in order to learn more about the research as well as practical advice on how to support patients through the diet.

Arranging medical tests
We suggest that you see your own doctor when considering the diet and they should be able to help you arrange appropriate testing. You can print out a letter and summary for professionals on the professionals page . We can recommend a variety of tests, ranging from simple blood tests to more sophisticated tests such as DEXA scanning and ultrasound. We can also provide you with an interpretation of the results in the context of your overall health. For further information please see our Getting Tested page.
