Ep. 87 Reversing Diabetes with Dr. Brendan Byrne, MD

September 29, 2021

Dr. Byrne’s deep passion is to use the latest science to help people change their behaviors, reverse their chronic illnesses and optimize their health.  He believes that we all need our own wellness practice; something that’s fun and energizes us so we can achieve our peak potential.

Brendan has been a physician and digital pioneer for the past 25 years. Trained at Yale and McGill, he has had a parallel career as an entrepreneur. From his original practice in New Westminster, Brendan created electronic medical record software and built a business that eventually was acquired by TELUS Health and currently serves over 50% of Canadian physicians.  From 2015 to 2018, he served as the Chief Innovation Officer for TELUS Health.  He currently sits on the boards of the
BC Academic Health Sciences Network and the Institute for Precision Therapeutic Nutrition. Brendan is a life-long runner, a former competitive track athlete, who now runs 20-30 miles a week.  He is a late convert to the functional movement and resistance training and does personal training with Innovative Fitness at the Wellness Garage.

On today’s podcast Nicolette and Dr. Bryne talk about all things diabetes. Brendan tells us about his practice, The Wellness Garage, that has a gym space, plant-based café, meditation room and an exam room and how he uses it to help people reverse their chronic diseases. They discuss the challenge of diabetes education and how it’s geared for people on medication, not people who want to get off them. Brendan also teaches us about how we need to move away from processed foods and to whole nutritious and he shares the 4 points on how to reverse diabetes, unravel the loop of the turnstile of fat and insulin, and how lose weight once and for all.
