[INTERVIEW] An interview with Dr Louise Phillips with Susan Birch, The Health Detective

I thoroughly enjoyed talking with Dr Louise Phillips today.

We have a lot in common with our desire to provide high-quality nutrition education that makes a difference in people’s lives.

I’m delighted to share Dr Phillips’s work. She has developed a unique tool for GPs, specialists and nutrition educators to use in their practice. As a busy GP, Senior Lecturer with the University of Queensland and Supervisor of registrars, she’s in an ideal position to understand the needs of her colleagues and their patients.

GPs frequently face criticism, including from me. Dr Phillips and I discuss several challenges they encounter within time-limited practices, adhering to best practice guidelines for drug prescription and limited testing resources. It’s a complex situation. Dr Phillips’ Low Carb Scripts tool provides an exceptional resource, enabling GPs to seamlessly integrate evidence-based, low-carb nutrition into their practices. The tool features ready-to-use videos, comprehensive handouts, and other resources, simplifying the process for patients to comprehend and adhere to. Additionally, it offers guidelines for the de-prescription of diabetes medications.

I talk with Dr Phillips about the transformations she observes in her patients’ health and discuss how a low-carb approach helps in weight loss and managing chronic diseases.

I’m eager to assist Dr Phillips in sharing this valuable resource as widely as possible. I hope you will support this effort by subscribing, liking, and sharing this video with friends, colleagues, and family, and I encourage you to share it with your GP as well. Numerous doctors, now considered thought leaders in the low-carb community, embarked on this path when patients shared their journeys. After experiencing personal improvements in weight and health, these doctors pursued specific training in this field. The more we engage with GPs and specialists on this topic, the wider the knowledge will spread, benefiting an increasing number of people.
