The Meat Medic
Optimising physical and mental health through species-appropriate diet, nutrition and lifestyle.
Welcome to The Meat Medic Podcast. I'm your host Dr Suresh Khirwadkar.
I'm a GP and Lifestyle Physician and I'm a practicing carnivore. I've had great success myself and with patients by following a carnivore diet, and want to spread the word about how to achieve optimal health through diet, nutrition and lifestyle changes.
All of the information is thoroughly researched by myself, as well as drawing on over 10 years of experience and training. I am a Specialist GP as well as a Board Certified Lifestyle Physician, and I have quite extensive training in nutrition having studies with ASLM, IBLM, ACNEM and Diet Doctor.
I work extensively with low carb, keto and carnivore nutrition in my usual practice, and it use to help people with a vast array of issues.
My focus is on holistic care, preferring to avoid medication prescriptions where possible and instead utilizing lifestyle interventions.
My real passion though is helping people to help themselves. I'm a huge believer in educating my patients and empowering them to prevent and treat chronic diseases themselves. My goal is to get to the point where my patients never actually need me.
Then my job is done.
A bit more about me
I'm a Specialist GP and Board Certified Lifestyle Physician (IBLM).
I've had great success myself and with patients by following a carnivore diet, and I want to spread the word about how to achieve optimal health through diet, nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Born and raised in the UK, I did my training there and I've been practicing for over 12 years.
I currently hold FRACGP, MRCGP, BSc (HONS), MBChB, Board Cert Life Med (IBLM).
I am passionate about providing education for my patients, and I'm very excited to offer my online courses and eBooks so that you can learn how to improve your own health.
I perform all aspects of General Practice, but my special interest areas including Lifestyle Medicine, Functional Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Skin Cancer, Psychology and Mental Health and Weight Loss Medicine.
I'm passionate and committed to delivering world class, excellent primary care to my patients and I'm always looking for more ways to help my patients to improve their health and prevent and treat their medical conditions, without drugs where possible.
What makes me different? Unfortunately many of the patients I see feel fobbed off by their usual doctor, or they simply don't spend long enough with them to really explore their issues and help them to tackle their problems without just resorting to medications. It is often said that doctors are too quick to reach for medications - well this is often true. I try to help my patients through long appointments, holistic care, and proper lifestyle interventions and mental health support, not just reaching for the prescription pad.
My real passion though is getting my patients to the point where they just don't need me any more. I believe that healthcare should be just that - healthcare, not sickcare.
Then my job is done.
