What is Integrated Medicine?


Integrated medicine is based on the partnership between doctor and patient who are co-creators in the journey of health. It honours the whole person and the inextricable connection between body, mind, and heart. It is a methodology that honours and supports the body’s self-healing ability and draws on the wisdom of ancient traditions and healing methodologies which are informed by evidence.

What you can expect from an integrative consultation?


We look at the immediate health concern in the context of all other physical and emotional symptoms, unique body type, and life circumstances.  Relief of symptoms is provided in a way that is least invasive and as natural as possible. This may involve the use of herbal or nutritional supplements, neuromuscular stimulation techniques, breathwork, and mindfulness training. Western medicine is prescribed if absolutely necessary. Relevant blood tests or other investigations are ordered as appropriate. A long term strategy is then designed to maintain and support optimum health and a more conscious lifestyle.

Modalities and Therapies

Herbal and nutritional medicine

I work with Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, vitamins, minerals and homeopathic remedies to treat symptoms and correct physiological imbalances. The supplement regime is tailored to suit your individual needs.

Neuromuscular stimulation technique

This is a powerful technique that involves needling and bio puncture with homeopathic remedies into specific energy points and trigger points. It is highly effective for treating muscle spasm, chronic backache, and headaches. It also stimulates the body’s own healing capability and is often used to treat allergies, sinusitis, IBS, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and depression.

BodyTalk

Bodytalk is at the cutting edge of Quantum medicine. It is a safe and gentle energy healing modality that uses muscle testing and specific protocols to communicate the body’s innate wisdom. Imbalances and specific issues that are a priority are brought up and worked on through a tapping technique that supports the body to heal itself.

Breathwork

Breath awareness and conscious breathing is the absolute foundation in the management of health, stress, and energy. It is part of the essential skill set that is required for peak performance, as well as being a powerful methodology for healing and self-awareness. Breathwork sessions will help you build a set of breathing techniques that can be applied in every aspect of your life.

Mindfulness training

Mindfulness is the ability to be aware of, and respond to, your physical, emotional and mental experience without reacting to it from a place of old habits and patterns. Mindful living is an imperative for us to support out health and live more consciously. More and more research is now being done to show the role of mindfulness in medicine. Mindfulness practice has a direct influence on the functioning of the immune system and on the adrenal axis. In the sessions you will be supported to integrate mindfulness into your everyday life.

Integrated lifestyle coaching

This is an intuitive and engaging coaching process based on the understanding of the mindbody connection, the principles of Ayurveda, and universal spiritual principles. Illness and major  life changes are opportunity to grow and expand, so in these session we create the space to explore the deeper aspects of yourself to live a more conscious and authentic life.

Each session last between 45 -60 minutes and can be claimed back from Medical Aid.
