Nutritional advice is a fundamental part of my neurosurgical practice. In conjunction with providing advanced neurosurgical techniques to patients with neurological diseases, I optimize simple foundational health imperatives to eliminate root causes of disease, improving patient outcomes. The major barrier to patients' understanding of sound nutrition is our industrialised, modern world. A phenomenal problem relates to the emergence of advice and dependence of society on carbohydrates, in particular fructose as an energy source. This is simply and effectively resolved by education about low-carbohydrate and healthy fat dietary lifestyle which progressively evolves into nutritional ketosis, restoring metabolic health and insulin sensitivity.
