This is a VERY loaded podcast in which we talk about combining minimally invasive surgical and medical care with nutrition to Carrie's journey with Type 1 Diabetes and her decision to pursue a plant-based ketogenic diet and then discuss the viability of plant based diets when it comes to achieving dietary and therapeutic goals.
Bio: Dr. Carrie Diulus is one of just a handful of board certified female orthopedic spine surgeons in the United States. She practices “patient-centered” medicine rather than the traditional “disease-centered” model. She starts by identifying all of the factors that influence a patient’s health. This understanding is then combined with state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgical and medical care including complementary and nutritional approaches to develop an individualized program for each patient’s unique needs.
