Gillian Szollos

I am a health policy, promotion and education consultant who uses a ketogenic diet to control my epileptic seizures. My knowledge and passion have helped many others  optimise their ketogenic diets to achieve their individual goals.  I am privileged to be able to interview people from all over the world who use ketogenic diets therapeutically and share their stories. My writing and public speaking engagements serve as opportunities to build community and share successes while drawing attention to the therapeutic possibilities of a ketogenic diet to change lives and in many cases, save them. 

I have completed Professional  Training in LCHF/Ketogenic Nutrition and Treatment   through the Noakes Foundation and I am a member of the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition
