What is integrated medicine?
The defining principles of integrative medicine are:
- All factors that influence health, wellness and disease are taken into consideration,
- including body, mind, spirit and community.
- Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive are used whenever possible.
- Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry driven and open to new
- Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the
- prevention of illness are paramount.
- The care is personalized to best address the individual’s unique conditions, needs and
- circumstances. Practitioners of integrative medicine exemplify its principles and
- commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.
- Providers use all healing sciences to facilitate the body’s innate healing response.
- The patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
How are you able to treat patients via Skype?
Skype enables me to treat patients wherever they may be. I am able to take a thorough medical history whilst listening to the patient’s concerns. This is followed by thorough investigation using both conventional and functional medicine. Once the underlying cause(s) of the problems have been identified I am able to provide a protocol of recommendations, which can include hormonal replacement, nutritional and life-style changes.
Where do you see Medicine moving to in the near future?
The future of medicine looks very exciting.
I can foresee:

- Predictive antibody screening
- More precise diagnosis with the use of advanced technology
- The use of nano robots instead of surgery, and many other similar treatments.
