Modern medicine is lying to you. Discover the true science behind chronic diseases—and implement an actionable plan to restore your health and longevity once and for all.

For the first time in history, chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity plague our population on a global scale. From a seasoned physician, this paradigm-shifting book comprehensively explains the linked cause and exposes the misconceptions prevalent in modern medicine.

In Lies I Taught in Medical School, Robert Lufkin, MD, explains that metabolic dysfunction is the common underlying cause of most chronic diseases that has been overlooked for decades, providing the tools needed to prevent and reverse them in ourselves. He draws on expansive, peer-reviewed evidence, proving that standard medical recommendations are killing us.

Over the course of 12 illustrated chapters, Lies I Taught in Medical School chronicles how Dr. Lufkin reversed four chronic diseases in himself and expertly supplies the strategies needed to:
  • Reduce chronic disease risk factors, such as inflammation and insulin resistance
  • Stabilize mental health via nutrition and lifestyle
  • Improve diet and metabolism
  • Treat obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular and other common chronic diseases
  • Get off unnecessary medications, including many diabetes and hypertension drugs

What’s more, Dr. Lufkin offers practical advice to show how lifestyle factors such as nutrition, sleep, exercise, and stress management can target the fundamental cause of chronic diseases. Lies I Taught in Medical School is a revolutionary and holistic guide that will help you take control of your health—before it’s too late.

He exposes the outdated truths in medicine with courage and clarity, urging a much-needed shift in how we view health and disease. His critique of conventional medical practices, especially regarding chronic diseases, is not only eye-opening but also empowering.”

“Standard of care medicine is outdated, often barbaric, and, based on recent revelations, in some cases even fraudulent . . . Dr. Robert Lufkin has the fortitude to reconsider everything he learned about medicine and pursue the new model—something I wish every caring physician would do. I recommend this book highly for anyone interested in what real medicine can achieve.”

—Paul Oakenfold, music producer, DJ, and health enthusiast
“Dr. Lufkin’s Lies I Taught in Medical School is a provocative and insightful assessment of many paradigms in the medical field that are failing to improve the health of far too many people. If you are struggling with your weight, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or any other condition linked to metabolism, this book is a must-read.”
Christopher M. Palmer, MD, assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of Brain Energy
“Dr. Robert Lufkin exposes defective energy metabolism as the common pathophysiological mechanism underlying the majority of chronic diseases that afflict people living in Western societies . . .
