THP 020: UK Doctor Awarded Prize For LCHF Work While Australian Doctor Is Silenced, What Is Going On?

940_joanne2

Dr. Joanne McCormack was recently awarded the prestigious Royal College of General Practitioners Mersey Faculty prize for her work helping people with obesity and diabetes using a Low Carb approach. She has teamed up with other colleagues and founded a charity called the Public Health Collaboration with the main aim of helping educate other medical professionals and the public about the option of adopting a LCHF lifestyle.

It is rather ironic that Australian doctor Gary Fettke was silenced from recommending a LCHF approach to his patients and at the same time a UK doctor was awarded…

In this conversation we discuss what’s it’s been like for Dr. McCormack as a practicing GP in the UK promoting what could be seen as fringe medicine.
