Who am I?
My name is Joanne McCormack and I am a freelance family doctor in Warrington, Cheshire, UK. For 23 years I worked in mainly one practice but now I work across several practices as a GP.
As medical students we never learned much about nutrition, and were taught that a balanced diet was all anyone could do to be in good health. In 2014 I listened to a radio programme which changed my personal and professional view on this, and that of many of my patients. Of course, my studies went way beyond this one programme and have continued to this day. Following this I gradually learned about a new, different way of eating which involved eating real, nutrient dense, unprocessed food. It can be varied according to your food preferences, current health, medical conditions and medications,so read on and see what you think.
All I have done with my food is given up the starches and sugars that are found in processed foods, and cut down those in natural foods. Now I live a healthy, happy life and I want to share this way of living with others. You can do this too, if you like what you see and choose to do so. Just read the site through and think about it before you start. Most Warrington GPs and nurses are aware of what I do (and many refer people to me), so do tell them about it when you see them. I do find many people come back months later feeling better, and on a reduced list of medication, or maybe none. Just so that you know I am not alone, I am one of a group of 12 founder doctors nationally of the charity known as the Public Health Collaboration. The Public Health Collaboration and an international study group numbering 350 people.
