South African-born Dr Simon Johnson is a knee and shoulder orthopaedic surgeon in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand who actively promotes low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) diets to his patients to boost health and prevent disease. Dr Johnson has limited his practice to knee and shoulder surgery because he believes that a limited scope of practice is the best way to deliver repeatable high-quality service. His special interests lie in uni-compartmental (or partial) knee replacements and arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery and nutrition as a powerful preventative measure. He recognises the role that obesity plays in his patients and says that the condition often precludes being able to operate on them. He believes that official dietary guidelines need a complete overhaul because people want to follow rules and comply. “Even if the rules are wrong and onsensical, they will still follow them – and that applies to doctors, too,” he says. As an active member of the New Zealand Orthopaedic Training Committee, he participates regularly in the education and training of orthopaedic registrars. Dr Johnson graduated as a medical doctor from the University of the Witwatersrand Wits university where also specialised in orthopaedic surgery and later completed his training training in England. He worked with Read more [...]

Dr Carlos E Moreyra is an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at Jackson Hospital in Marianna, Florida. In his hospital practice, Dr Moreyra sees a variety of common orthopaedic conditions, such as fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee and hip arthritis, shoulder and knee injuries, overuse and sports-related injuries. He sees common injuries in children as well. He regularly discusses dietary and lifestyle changes to address chronic health issues that are not orthopaedic in nature but that have orthopaedic implications. Dr Moreyra says that much of orthopaedics consists of addressing the end result of chronic disease but without much counselling and education on addressing the root cause. He spends significant time addressing root causes of chronic disease, in the hopes of helping patients improve their health not just simply addressing their symptoms. Where controversy exists in management of care, he follows sound clinical judgment and best-available evidence. He offers surgery only where there is a clinical indication for it. When both non-operative and operative solutions are reasonable treatment options for the patient, he presents and discusses both. His goals for patients are for them to get better and improve the quality and longevity of their lives, whether that requires surgery or Read more [...]

Cape Town specialist physician Dr Hassina Kaje runs a medical practice based on “understanding the patient who has the disease within the context of the disease that the patient has”. Dr Kajee also sees healthy patients wanting to prevent disease. She counsels patients on lifestyle, including diet, nutrition and fasting, based on low-carb, high-healthy-fat (LCHF) therapies, as well as stress management, sleep hygiene, relationships and exercise. In short, she counsels her patients on healthy living and ageing well. She changed her medical practice after becoming dissatisfied with the conventional model of “palliative”, chronic disease medicine while she was running the High Care Unit of a prominent Cape Town tertiary hospital. At that time, she came to realise that a well-formulated LCHF diet was a key factor in reversing diabetes and chronic disease. Dr Kajee resigned from hospital work after trying to implement LCHF and becoming overwhelmed by the many acute and acute on chronic medical cases that made her unable to make a substantial difference. She now practises medicine more in line with her personal understanding of integrative chronic disease and obesity reversal practice. Dr Kajee sits on the board of directors of the Noakes Foundation and is co-founder and Read more [...]

Dr Rimas V Janušonis is a family medicine physician in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the US and uses low-carb diet therapies in his practice at ThedaCare Physicians-Oshkosh. Dr Janušonis speaks from personal experience of the benefit. He struggled with his weight throughout his life, aggravated by the stress of medical school and residency. He had tried the conventional advice to “eat less and move more” that “is routinely taught as gospel truth” in his profession without success. After routine lab work showed that he had developed metabolic syndrome, that was the “wake-up call he needed” to change his lifestyle and eating habits. He did further reading and research and fully implemented carbohydrate restriction. His metabolic syndrome resolved, he lost weight and has kept it off. It’s still work in progress, he says, but at least he knows he will be around to see his kids (and grandkids) grow up. Results have been so good and sustainable that he felt rejuvenated in his desire to help patients lose weight, improve their health and cardiovascular status, better control their diabetes and even put it into remission.
