Prof. Tim Noakes: my inspiration and bearer of the torch!
After I was released from the hospital, I decided to make my own research and find out the reason for my stroke. Before I knew anything else, I stumbled upon the videos of the deposition of Prof. Tim Noakes.
I was so interested and the information was so clear that I ran a 'marathon' of the trial and watched all the episodes (82 videos - YES! 82 videos! Watch it here) twice. I wanted to understand. I wanted to get it clear. His words opened for me a door to a new world where I learned about metabolic syndrome, ketones, ketosis, intermittent fasting, and how wrong I was by religiously following the 'healthy low fat' diet. He opened for me the door towards healing. I am forever thankful to him, and I actually created this website so I can share with other people like me, who are desperately searching for a hint, a clue and a way to heal from a terrible and horrible brain event such as a stroke.
