Integrative Medicine

An integrative or holistic approach focuses on health and well being and attempts to determine the cause or contributing factors of disease or imbalance, rather than just treating the symptoms. The person is assessed as a whole with focus on both mind and body. Addressing and often adjusting nutrition and lifestyle is extremely important as the first steps to health and well-being.

Often, other modalities may be engaged including evidence-based complementary medicine as well as conventional medicine when required.

Using this approach helps the patient understand about how their body works and what it needs to function optimally. It also empowers the patient to take greater control over their health.

Dr Marina McPherson (BMBS, BSci. Biomed, FRACGP) passionately practices Integrative Medicine.

She works with the patient in full partner-ship and will be guided by their preference of treatment options and modalities.

Conditions that may benefit from such an approach include:

–       Gastrointestinal disorders / food intolerances

–       Eczema, asthma

–       Menstrual disorders

–       Menopause

–       Diabetes

–       High blood pressure

–       Fatigue

–       Anxiety / Depression

–       Children’s behavioral difficulties

–       Chronic conditions


“Let food be thy medicine and let medicine by thy food”. ~ Hippocrates
