The Salt Fix (CHES)

Why the Experts Got It All Wrong

This course is only for CHES practitioners.

Interesting and easy to read, evidence-based, well-researched, and will likely be a real game changer. Author is a respected cardiovascular research scientist, Pharm.D. at St. Luke’s Mid America Heart Inst., Kansas City, MO. The author points out yet another nutrition misconception that we have been teaching for decades like low fat and low cholesterol, and high carbs. He gives us the research to feel confident in what we say.

As nutritionists, we need to look at the research from the beginning of the low salt recommendation and reevaluate what we tell people.

“Thought-provoking, evidence-based information for anyone interested in improving their health.” Library Journal 

“For decades, doctors and mainstream medicine have recommended lowering your salt intake, but in this well-researched and surprising book, Dr. DiNicolantonio explains why this seemingly well-informed advice is, in fact, wrong.” Robb Wolf, New York Times Bestselling Author
