Acupuncturist Mackay Rippey Looks At Health From A Low-Carb Vantage Point

Filed under: Health — @ February 2, 2009

Mackay Rippey is an acupuncturist who understands low-carb nutrition well

Like chiropractors, the acupuncture profession has long been thought of as quackery by the mainstream medical community. But many of the most influential members of the alternative, natural health movement are on the cutting-edge of nutrition and health and today we are honored to have one with us for an interview on my podcast.

In Episode 224 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear directly from Mackay Rippey who has a personal vested interest in the subject of diet and health. Although the education he received was rooted in conventional wisdom regarding diet, Mackay acknowledges that times have changed from the ancient Chinese philosophy and thus must adjust to modern-day society. He discusses how our house lights fool our bodies into thinking it is summertime which then effects our sleep leading to adverse changes in stress hormones like cortisol as well as how we got stuck with disgustingly unhealthy vegetable oils mass marketed as Crisco. WHEW! Tune in today to see how livin’ la vida low-carb works into this grand health equation.
