'The Salerno Strategy' Blog Carries On Low-Carb Living Where Dr. Atkins Left Off
Jimmy Moore
December 29, 2006

The following is a reprint from the blog "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb":

Dr. Salerno wants to continue on the great legacy of Dr. Robert C. Atkins

There's another graduate from the Dr. Robert C. Atkins School of Nutrition I'd like to introduce you to today. His name is Dr. John P. Salerno and he worked directly with the late great one at The Atkins Center For Complementary Medicine beginning in July 2002 until Dr. Atkins' untimely death in 2004. But the indelible impression that was left upon Dr. Salerno is stronger than ever as we approach 2007.

Dr. Salerno started his own holistic clinic imploring changes in diet and nutrition called The Salerno Center For Complementary Medicine where he uses the training he learned from Dr. Atkins to provide the highest quality of healthcare using a low-carb dietary approach along with the right mix of vitamins and minerals, detoxification methods, and all-natural hormone therapy. With 15 years of experience, which includes some teaching at the prestigious Yale Medical School, Dr. Salerno has the credentials and the expertise to provide solid information about livin' la vida low-carb.

That's why I'm thrilled to introduce to you his new blog called The Salerno Strategy. Dr. Salerno helps patients deal with such issues as chronic fatigue, weight loss, depression, anxiety, autism, anti-aging, diabetes, heart problems, toxins in the body, yeast infections, and so much more. And he wants to answer YOUR questions about any of these subjects, especially if you have a difficult question regarding the Atkins/low-carb nutritional approach. Dr. Salerno is an authority on the subject and more than happy to respond directly to your inquiries.

Dr. Salerno has committed his life to helping others learn the truth about how to keep themselves healthy. Just like other Atkins disciples such as Jackie Eberstein, Valerie Berkowitz and her husband Dr. Keith Berkowitz at the Center For Balanced Health, and Dr. Mary C. Vernon, he is still sharing the positive message of livin' la vida low-carb with people who desperately need to heed the lessons of the man who deserves to be praised for what he did to truly revolutionize health and nutrition forever.

If Dr. Atkins were still around today, he would be saddened by the rapid decline in health that's happening in the United States of America and around the world. That's something that gravely concerns Dr. Salerno, too, but he realizes the answer is not just nutritional. Air pollution and environmental toxins are just as damaging to the health of human beings as eating the wrong foods. This was something Dr. Atkins often preached in his practice, Dr. Salerno noted, although he was too often pegged for his low-carb "diet" plan.

Recognizing the obesity epidemic is due in part to those millions of Americans who live on doughnuts, bagels, cheeseburgers, potato chips, pizza, soft drinks and other junk food, Dr. Salerno said this has led to a direct decline in health while doctors attempt to cover up the real cause of the problem with expensive prescription medications. There's no concept of treating these conditions with preventative measures, including changes in diet and physical activity levels. This is an issue South Beach diet author Dr. Arthur Agatston is hammering hard right now as well.

Dr. Salerno said he is excited to have the opportunity to help educate the public about the health benefits of livin' la vida low-carb at his new blog and hopes people will avail themselves of this resource for reliable and trusted information.

"This blog will take and answer many of your questions and provide the latest news on solutions and issues," he said. "And I dedicate it to the memory and pioneering work of my friend and hero, Dr. Robert C. Atkins."

I can think of no greater tribute to the man who has inspired millions to lose weight and get healthy. In fact, I would not have been the 180+ pound low-carb weight loss success had it not been for the Atkins diet. My only regret is that I never had the opportunity to meet Dr. Atkins while he was still alive. But his memory and the amazing work he did to further low-carb living to the masses still lives on in people like Dr. Salerno.
