Play • 37 min

In this 3rd episode of The Kurang Manis Podcast, we meet Dr. Pran Yoganathan, a gastroenterologist and hepatologist based in Sydney. A passionate educator, a Mathematician-turned doctor who has lived in Sri Lanka, Africa, New Zealand and Australia, Dr. Pran wants to put the power in his patients' hands and provide them with data so that they can embark on their own journeys of self-healing using the philosophy of “let food be thy medicine”. Harnessing creative technology and 14,400 followers on Instagram @dr_pran_yoganathan, he stresses that his educational memes are not medical advice or recommendations, simply his opinions -- and rather strong science-backed opinions they are too! Find out why Dr. Pran's diet of choice - grass-fed steak and eggs has raised eyebrows and temperatures not just in the oven, but in conversation with peers as well. Ask him about butyrate and you'll get him all fired up and excited! Now, are WE ready to absorb the fact that we're meant to burn fat for energy and not glycogen? Let's save that for perhaps another episode. Joining co-hosts Jasmine Low and Nikki Yeo in this same episode are Dr. Desmond Menon, medical lab scientist featured in Ep. 2 Do Our Genes Predispose us to Diseases of our Parents and Malaysia's "biggest" stand-up comedian Papi Zak.
