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


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.
