A word from “Chris”
Health and disease prevention has been a lifelong passion of mine. After working in hospitals and later in general practice for many years dealing with human suffering, I wanted to dig deeper.
Rather than wait for a disease to manifest, I began to research how the patient’s body could be treated and nourished to help avoid disease triggers in the first place. This led to me discovering integrative medicine, now more than 25 years ago.
During that time, I travelled the world taking my studies beyond my medical degree. I studied acupuncture, dermatology, naturopathy, nutrition, herbal medicine, anti-aging, functional and environmental medicine to mention a few.
Integrative medicine is a modality that resonated well with me.
It’s about treating a person in their wholeness – not just about alleviating the symptoms, but identifying imbalances and using a number of disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Since retiring from general practice, my focus is now on integrative medicine as well as my other passion. Dermatology and non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
Whilst most of us want some tweaks to our external features and quickly, we find with many of our clients, that in order to achieve long-lasting results, attention needs to focus on what’s happening internally.
The skin is not only our protective barrier to the environment but many times a mirror to our internal health.
Acne and virtually all other common skin pathologies like psoriasis, eczema, are caused by internal conditions.
With over thirty-five years of experience I tailor your personal health care to suit your special needs and budget, using a blend of the latest technologies, Western, Environmental, Herbal, Nutritional and Lifestyle Medicine.
