Do our patients with chronic diseases really need more pharmacotherapy? Or can we empower them to take back control of their health, reverse their chronic disease and enjoy a medication-free life?
Ruth is a GP in Devon with a passion for helping her patients to regain control of their health through lifestyle changes.
Her team is helping their patients reverse type 2 diabetes and prediabetes and lose excess weight. Many have also seen improvements in other symptoms including IBS, acid reflux, joint pains, mental health and sleep apnoea.
They are demonstrating that the right lifestyle approach can be more effective than medication, and without the risk of side effects and serious complications, not to mention the financial burden to the NHS.
The team's impressive clinical outcomes and prescription savings offer hope that the NHS does not need to be overwhelmed by the epidemic of obesity and poor metabolic health.
