Top Aussie doctor urges controversial chef Pete Evans to seek help

Recently axed My Kitchen Rules judge Pete Evans fired back at claims his mental state has been altered since his firing. The comments came from the president of the Royal Australian College of GPS who spoke to Ben Fordham’s 2GB.

Dr Harry Nespolon said he was “genuinely worried” about the chef, whose ramblings on social media have caused controversy.

Evans has also urged his followers to “manifest their own reality”, which has caused Nespolon to worry, according to The Daily Mail.

“If he really is in trouble, dare I say, he should make an appointment with his GP and I’m really quite serious about that,” Nespolon said.

The doctor was worried about Evan’s recent firing as Evans has recently lost an $800,000 a year contract with Seven.

“It doesn’t matter what he has done in the past, it really is important that we do take care of him and that we reach out to him if there is a problem,” he said.

“He has just lost his job, or he has resigned from his job. That is a very stressful thing to have happened.

“I don’t know Pete Evans, I don’t know his family so this is just pure speculation but it really is one of the oddest things I have ever read.”

However, Evans has since confirmed that he is “extremely happy, content and enjoying life” in a new Facebook post.

He also thanks Nespolon for his “concern for my well-being”.

“I have the most robust health (physical, emotional and spiritual) ever at the age of almost 47 years, and currently do not take any medications/pharmaceuticals,” Evans wrote.

“I send love and light to all the wonderful doctors and health workers out there, that are helping people achieve long term sustainable health.

“I have some wonderful friends that are great integrative/functional medical doctors, so if I ever need any ‘help’, I know who to go and see.”

The comments from the doctor come after Evans shared an Instagram post about what “code words” to look out for on social media in relation to COVID-19.

“Soon you will hear about certain high profile people (celebrities, politicians, executives, elite, billionaires) having CV (coronavirus). Here are some code words to look out for,” it read.

“Self Quarantined = under house arrest either under Federal agent guards or ankle bracelet. Self Quarantined, CV exposure = detained and being questioned by authorities. Tested negative for CV = no confession so they are going to trial after world mass arrest. If convicted their reputation and legacy will be destroyed.

“Tested positive for CV = they confessed and taking a deal, their execution will be out of the public eye. Execution will be portrayed as a suicide or some sort of accidental death. Their reputation and legacy will be preserved.”

The list concluded: “Remember, these people are being arrested for major crimes against humanity. NO PITY.

“Pay very close attention for these code words in the media.”
