I sat down with Dr. Adele Hite to talk about the imminent launch of the nonprofit Society for Metabolic Health Practitioners (SMHP). She has been instrumental in helping us to get to this point. Back in 2018 she worked with the panel of advisors that we put together to oversee the development of the Clinical Guidelines for therapeutic carbohydrate restriction. We published them on our LowCarbUSA® site at our Seattle event in May, 2019 and they have been embraced by the community. However it was never really the ideal home for these guidelines and through numerous discussions with Dr. Tro Kalayjian, it became clear that what we really needed was a dedicated nonprofit entity for practitioners. So I went off and established a nonprofit called the SMHP and put a Board of Directors in place and built a website and by the time this podcast airs, we will be live at https://metabolicpractitioners.org/.
You can help is to get this going by engaging on the website and an social media:

We have now introduced tiers for Loyal Patrons to get early access to podcast episodes as well as really cool bonus material. The work we do to put on these educational events, build the community and develop and maintain the Clinical Guidelines we have published is not sustainable without your support. Please consider being a part of the solution and contributing to changing the world with us by becoming a Patron. Even the smallest contribution helps!
