“The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.”  PROVERB

We all want to be healthy, right?  But, what does that really mean?  There’s so much information around that sometimes it’s difficult to know what’s right for you and your body.

As a Doctor with over ten years of medical experience, my definition of health extends far beyond just being the right weight and being free from disease. Good health means being energised, loving life and feeling great in your body. It’s about living your best life.

Too many clients walk into my clinic saying that they are in good general health, yet when I dig deeper they reveal that they are tired, stressed, can’t sleep well and struggle to shift weight.

I want you to know that you don’t have to feel this way!

I combine my Medical training with Lifestyle therapies to treat you as a whole person.  Mind, body and spirit.

My approach rests on three fundamental pillars:  Health, Happiness and Harmony.

Health

I want you to see your health issues as alarm bells, warning signs.

 “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease then what sort of disease a person has”

– Hippocrates

I know about medicine and you know your own body.

Combining our knowledge and working together gives us the chance to get to the root cause, for less unnecessary treatment and more predictable outcomes. I don’t want you to keep coming back, I want to work with to improve your quality of life so you can get on with living it to the fullest!  This is why an increasing number of people in Australia, and all over the world, are turning toward lifestyle medicine.

Lifestyle medicine combines evidence-based medical practice with an understanding of biochemical, environmental, social and behavioural factors. It’s about looking at the patient as a whole person, not just a set of symptoms.

YOU ARE NOT YOUR ILLNESS & IT DOES NOT DEFINE YOU

Happiness

Do you ever feel that you’ve lost your inner sparkle?  Your playful essence?  That your inner candle has been snuffed out, or is fading away?

“A sad soul can kill you quicker than a germ”

– John Steinbeck

I suggest we stop spending too much time probing at depression, and start promoting happiness. The pursuit of happiness is essential in living your best life. Happiness is a choice and a skill.  I want to help you live your happiest life.

Research clearly shows that our bodies are healthier when we are happier. Our muscles are more relaxed; we produce greater amounts of our anti-aging hormone (DHEA) and our happiness hormone (serotonin).  We also produce less stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which can have damaging impacts on our bodies, and affect our moods.

I work with clients to rewire their brains and start to live in a way that’s open, honest and authentic.  Happiness is the cornerstone of both good health and an enlightened life and you my darling deserve both of these things.

Harmony

To find harmony we need to dig deep to find the root causes of a health problem.  I see my role as Doctor to be a partner in your health; to listen to you and share my knowledge with you; but ultimately to empower you.

Everything that happens to you, whether, it be on a physical, emotional or mental level also affects you at a cellular level.

We’re all unique individuals, we’re unnumbered. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to harmonizing

I draw from my medical background as a Doctor, and combine this with lifestyle therapies to enlighten, educate and empower you to take charge of your health.

My harmonizing methods can include:

  • Examining your nutrition
  • Assessing your lifestyle choices
  • Reviewing your environmental exposures
  • Writing exercise prescriptions
  • Using meditation and yin like practices
  • Mindfullness
  • Yoga

I’ll give you the information that puts you in the driver’s seat; empowering you to be your best self and live your best life.

My average consultation time is 60 minutes so that I can truly build up a picture of your health to get to the bottom of what’s concerning you.
