The Natural State with Dr. Anthony Gustin

Feb 10, 2020

Would you be surprised to hear a cardiologist prescribing low-carb and keto diets to his patients?

Dr. Bret Scher, a board-certified cardiologist known as the Low-Carb Cardiologist, definitely received his share of skepticism in the medical field for this.

But, here’s the thing, Dr. Scher started out prescribing the low-fat, high-carb diet he was taught throughout medical school to his patients.

And it didn’t work.

His patients weren’t making improvements despite his and their best efforts.

Dr. Scher knew there had to be a better way and eventually, his research led him to keto.

You may be thinking that he’d be the last person promoting a low-carb, high-fat diet, but he found incredible results personally and in his patients, especially his most challenging ones.

You’ll hear more about this, along with the other lifestyle therapies he’s prescribing.

Dr. Scher also shares what to do about high cholesterol on keto, other blood markers to consider, and his experience prescribing time-restricted eating.

Dr. Scher is board certified in adult cardiovascular disease, adult echocardiography, and nuclear cardiology.

He’s also held prior certifications as a NASM certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, as well as in functional medicine and behavior modification.

When you check out this episode, you’ll learn about the research behind using keto and low-carb diets to improve heart health and so much more.
