Gary Fettke is an orthopedic surgeon practicing in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. Although his specialty is surgery, Gary believes it is much better to help people avoid surgery by taking preventive lifestyle measures. He was “a fat kid” and developed numerous health issues as an adult including an aggressive eyesight-threatening pituitary tumor. After years of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, he embarked on an LCHF (Low-Carb Healthy Fat) diet which halted tumor progression, allowing him to stop chemotherapy entirely. Gary is the only physician in the world to have been formally banned from advising patients to reduce sugar intake.
Under threat of losing his medical license, he publicly challenged the Australian Health Practitioner’s Regulation Agency ruling, saying “Once you see the benefits of LCHF, you cannot unsee them.” In a landmark decision in September 2018, after years of investigation, the AHPRA reversed its opinion and issued Dr. Fettke a formal apology. Dr. Fettke speaks internationally on the role of refined carbohydrates and polyunsaturated oils in the development of inflammation, diabetes, cancer, and other modern diseases, and is the author of Inversion: One Man’s Answer for World Peace and Global Health.
