“Low-carb GP” Dr David Unwin, FRCGP, the doctor who is revolutionising the NHS’s treatment of diabetes with nutrition – in many cases reversing the disease – is back by popular demand to share his inspirational experiences at the sharp end of an NHS practice.

Neuroscientist Dr Elisabeth Philipps, PhD, backs up evidence-based research information with experience as an IFM-recognised functional medicine practitioner. Her presentation last year on CBD and gut health provoked the most questions we’ve ever had from a conference audience: she is back with more answers!

Dr. David Unwin, MD, is an award-winning general practitioner (or family doctor) known for pioneering the low-carb approach in his profession in the UK.

In 2016 he won the prestigious NHS Innovator of the Year award for his work with diabetes patients. On top of that, Dr. Unwin is the medical advisor at the popular Low Carb Program and is doing his best to spread knowledge about low carb among doctors, dietitians and nurses.

In 2017/18, his practice saved £57,000 on drugs for type 2 diabetes, hypertension and other conditions by offering patients a dietary alternative to medications.

Recently Dr. Unwin was named the ninth most influential general practitioner in the UK by GP magazine Pulse. Moreover, he is Clinical Expert in Diabetes at Fellowship of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners where he was elected as a Fellow in 2008.

Dr. Unwin has also written several peer-reviewed papers to strengthen the science behind low-carb diets.

The full title and synopsis will be announced shortly.
