• Insulin and Its Metabolic Effects - Transcription of a talk presented at Designs for Health Institute's BoulderFest Seminar
    This information was ground breaking and way before its time, and to this day this information is still new to the vast majority of doctors in 2011. Dr. Rosedale was one of the first to speak throughout the world detailing the critical importance of insulin to health and disease. The transcription of this talk that a participant had recorded and posted on the internet is now considered a classic on the subject.
  • Protein: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
    Ron Rosedale recommends adequate protein and warns that excess protein is bad for health.

    He gave this talk at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) meeting Oct 31, 2006. They’re medical experts who work to reduce obesity. As part of the 2006 presentations, the ASBP included a special segment that featured low-carb diets, researchers and scientists who are connected to the Nutrition and Metabolism Society. Special thanks to Instatapes for recording this presentation.

    The good, and that’s pretty good, is that we can’t live without it. It is a required nutrient. It’s an essential nutrient. Unlike carbohydrates, which is a nonessential nutrient, which means you don’t have to have any. With carboydrates, you can make whatever you need. With amino acids, you have to take some of them in.
  • Insulin, Leptin and the Control of Aging
    Ron Rosedale says to keep your cells sensitive to leptin, insulin and other hormones for better health.

  • 21st century 'New Kid On the Block
    Normally, leptin's function is to reduce appetite and induce fat burning (among many other functions). That is what high leptin signaling in a brain would do. Low leptin (in the brain) is an indication to eat more and store more fat (to successfully reproduce and to live long enough to do so). However, elevated leptin in a fasting blood sample indicates leptin resistance and likely low leptin signaling to some parts of the brain while other parts of the brain get the full high signal. In other words, some of the brain only hears a whisper while other parts (of the brain and periphery) get screamed at.
  • Burn Fat, Not Sugar to lose weight
    When we talk about what to eat, we must first realize who, or rather what, is eating. In fact, we, ourselves, are not really doing the eating. It is our cells that eat. When we put food in our mouth, that is just a continuation of the transport of food from the farms to the grocery store then into our mouth; the food is then transported to our cells by our bloodstream. It is our cells that really do the eating and that need the fuel and the parts to regenerate themselves. And cells can only eat two kinds of food for fuel. They can eat sugar or they can eat fat, and their health and your health will be determined by the primary fuel that they burn.
  • Cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease
    Cholesterol is not the major culprit in heart disease or any disease. If it becomes oxidized it can irritate/inflame tissues in which it is lodged in, such as the endothelium (lining of the arteries). This would be one of numerous causes of chronic inflammation that can injure the lining of arteries. However, many good fats are easily oxidized such as omega- 3 fatty acids, but it does not mean that you should avoid it at all costs.
  • Diabetes is NOT a disease of blood sugar
    As I have stated previously, and one concept that I would like to make wellknown to save thousands and perhaps millions of lives as soon as possible, is that diabetes is not a disease of blood sugar, but a disease of insulin and perhaps more importantly leptin signaling, and until that concept becomes well-known in the medical community, articles like the one published in this issue will fortunately continue to be published revealing the inadequacy of current conventional medical treatment for chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, and the falsity of their advice about nutrition.
  • Leptin and its essential role in health disease and aging
    The Ob mouse is a strain of mouse that has a genetic mutation that makes it obese and unhealthy. It has been used for many years as a model of obesity to do research on, though the reason that it was obese had eluded scientists. This changed when, in 1994, Jeffrey Friedman discovered that this mouse lacked a previously unknown hormone called leptin, and when it was injected with leptin it became thin, vibrant, and very healthy within weeks. This made headlines around the world, "the cure for obesity found" and pharmaceutical companies started tripping over themselves with trillion dollar signs in their eyes to be the first to genetically manufacture leptin on a large-scale.
  • A retrospective study; Clinical Experience of a Diet Designed to Reduce Aging.
    Ron Rosedale, M.D., Eric C. Westman, M.D., M.H.S., and John P. Konhilas, Ph.D.
    Objective: Aging is associated with elevated levels of glucose, insulin, and triglycerides. Our objective was to assess the effect of a nutritional program designed to reduce these correlates of aging. A nutritional program recommendation originally designed to treat chronic diseases of aging led to weight loss and metabolic changes currently thought to be beneficial in reducing the aging process.
  • Life, Death, Food, and the Disease of Aging. Ron Rosedale, M.D.
    Here is a talk given by Dr. Rosedale well described by the title given at the American Academy of Antiaging Medicine meeting in Orlando, Florida. 2011. Dr. Rosedale describes the powerful connection between the food that we eat, its effects on critical hormones such as insulin and especially leptin, and their effect on disease and the rate of aging.

Patient Case Studies

  • Insulin and Its Metabolic Effects
    First, let‘s talk about a couple of case histories. These are actual patients that I‘ve seen; let‘s start with patient A. This patient saw me one afternoon and said that he had literally just signed himself out of the hospital "AMA," or against medical advice. Like in the movies, he had ripped out his IVs.

Newspaper and media articles

  • Letter to the editor, published in the New York Times regarding the ACCORD study.

  • Rosedale in The Times of India.
    India is leading the world in Diabetes, Dr. Rosedale has spent a great deal of time in India over the last 5 years. He has helped set up health retreats in southern India, and spoke with many strong leaders of India about the need and the ability to change the countries health crisis, and be model for the rest of the world.
  • Times of India, again.
    Dr. Rosedale talked to many organizations and groups about the need to gradually move off medicine.
