The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore


Jun 23, 2020

Episode 1652

Jimmy talks about how Dr. Gary Fettke and Pete Evans fight for the nutritional truth in Australia.

“For four years this doctor had the answer for his patients’ illnesses but was prevented from sharing the truth with them.”

– Jimmy Moore

When medical doctors take the Hippocratic oath to “first do no harm,” then you would assume that means they will do anything within their arsenal of knowledge and experience to make their patients better. Unfortunately, though, this doesn’t seem to apply to those doctors who have become educated on the role of nutrition in the health of their patients. And we’re seeing it all over the world right now we are doctors using a dietary approach like keto are being brought before their medical review board to explain what they are doing.

Isn’t this infuriating? I just don’t understand how a doctor promoting a natural health remedy like rating real food is somehow harming their patients in any way whatsoever. Now you and I both know the close ties that mainstream medical doctors have with the pharmaceutical companies that can line their pockets with kickbacks for prescribing drugs. But when are the ethical doctors going to stand up and say enough is enough?

Listen in as Jimmy talks about the tragic story of one such medical doctor who was scrutinized for more than four years simply because three anonymous dietitians didn’t like that he was promoting a low-carb, healthy fat diet for his patients with obesity and diabetes. Dr. Gary Fettke is an orthopedic physician in Tasmania, Australia who is helping his patients keep their limbs with LCHF when mainstream medicine gave up on them. But he was forced to stop talking about nutrition while he was being investigated for a very long time—despite the fact that not one single patient had complained.
