Biographical Info Ron has run his own General Practice in a regional city in Australia (Townsville, Queensland) for over 30 years. His special interest areas include: Management of Chronic Disease, Skin cancer surgery, Preventative Medicine and Practice Management. He has seen the rise of chronic disease in his community over a long period of time. On reflection, Ron notes that having seen many (failed and expensive) public health programmes come and go that focus on diet, lifestyle change and exercise, the problem continues to grow exponentially. The number of patients with co-morbidities and polypharmacy alarmed him. He comments that we seem to be at a crisis point. Gastric surgery is touted as the only solution. A drastic approach to what should be a preventable problem. After reading around the scientific basis for the LCHF lifestyle, it seemed that this could be the new approach that may help stem the tide. Consequently, Ron has undertaken to educate himself further in this field and offers this to patients he thinks would benefit from it and, to help prevent the development of disease in the currently healthy.
