I believe that we all have the ability to live a healthy and vital life. As a leader in Functional Medicine, I practice what I call Good Medicine; an appropriate blend of cutting-edge, modern medicine with age-old healing techniques from the East so that together we can create your own personal health care plan. My method is simple – remove what is harmful and add what is beneficial. This integrative approach takes into account your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing.
For almost 40 years, I have guided and helped thousands of patients feel healthier, look great, and increase energy and resiliency to better deal with life’s stresses.

Podcast: Tune into Wellness with Dr. Frank Lipman
The Low Carbohydrate - High Fat Diet
Dr. Frank Lipman talks with fellow South African. Professor Tim Noakes, the author of numerous books and a sports scientist, who has published more than 750 scientific articles.
He initially advocated a high carb diet for athletes in his book “Lore of Running” (1986). But his beliefs evolved over the years when he realized he was wrong and now advocates for a low-carb, high fat diet in his more recent books “The Real Meal Revolution” (2014) and “Lore of Nutrition: Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs” (2017).
Professor Noakes, who single-handedly popularized the low carb diet in South Africa has created The Noakes Foundation to educate low income South Africans about modifying their diet to improve their health.
In the podcast, they discuss the importance of a healthy gut microbiome, the role of diet in managing diabetes and hypertension, and how medications are often not necessary if a healthy diet is adopted.
