Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. Nicholas Norwitz is a researcher and scientist with expertise and scientific papers published on ketosis, brain aging, neuroscience, heart disease, gastrointestinal health, genetics, bone health, diabetes, and other subjects. He has his PhD from Oxford and is currently working on his MD at Harvard.

In our discussion, we talk about osteoporosis, gut health, anorexia, how LowCarb could potentially be a dietary intervention for treating colitis, the amazing diversity of gut microbiome makeup from individual to individual, the relationship between lifestyle and the likelihood of developing Alzheimers later in life, whether or not living a keto or Low Carb lifestyle could improve your chances of avoiding Alzheimers, how ketosis may be able to reduce inflammation in the brain, how to prevent the breakdown of the blood/brain barrier in the brain, and the non-food, lifestyle factors that contribute to wellness.

Additionally, Nicholas shares a bit about his crazy health journey dealing with osteoporosis and gut problems which he was ultimately able to resolve and/or improve using Low Carb.
