Alongside practising general medicine, I have the following special interests:
Preventive medicine focuses on the health of both the individual and societies. It is a proactive approach to patient care to ensure that any sickness is minimised and detected early so that a patient has the best chance of recovery to optimum health.
Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person in the management and prevention of disease. An holistic health practitioner will look beyond symptoms and will also consider the impact of lifestyle, spiritual, nutritional, emotional, environmental, and physical aspects of life. Significant effort is expended on establishing a clear understanding of the factors that may contribute to a person’s disease state. Illness is not isolated from the patient but rather a manifestation of dysfunction within the whole person.
Ecological Medicine is known better as Functional Medicine in the USA; the differences are minor, apart from the concern for the environment. In the UK and elsewhere it has historically been called AENM – Allergy, Environmental and Nutritional Medicine, after its main components.
