TCR and Keto Nutrition have long been considered a new science. After years of tireless work and collaboration, the pioneering TCR global community has changed this perception, by clarifying and demonstrating the diet’s potential to change the face of health and the nature of healthcare, worldwide. As the world leader in online TCR trainings, NN has trained thousands of medical and allied healthcare practitioners from around the world. NN trainings have focused on how to integrate TCR into practitioners existing practices, but the leaders of NN felt that more had to be done, specifically in the field of integrating TCR into medical education.
“No longer will there be ANY excuse for any medical professional not to know that low-carbohydrate diet is most studied and most effective diet on planet for reversing and preventing the chronic illnesses that occur in those with insulin resistance who choose to eat low-fat diets.” – Professor Tim Noakes.
