Hi! I founded Pulse Holistic Medical Centre. We are a team of holistic doctors and good naturopaths who offer the Sunshine Coast something a little different. We hope to give our patients the very best complementary medicine.
I am a holistic doctor with over 20 years experience on the Sunshine Coast. I am interested in non pharmaceutical treatments to optimise health. This so-called integrative medicine is an eye opening, fascinating and rewarding area. I want to share what I have learned with you. If you are looking for an experienced holistic doctor, one who has a working knowledge of the naturopathic world, I would love to help you.
I am convinced that much illness is a consequence of nutritional deficiency. Many Australians are undernourished, even those who eat well. This is partly because our food is often not nutrient dense, and, unfortunately, Australian soil is typically deficient in essential nutrients.
Might you be zinc, iodine, magnesium, vitamin D, B6, B9, B12, K or omega 3 deficient? Not sure? If so, I can sort that out for you.
Many of us are sick from what we eat or drink. For example, I think most cereal is not healthy food. I think some of us are made sick by our drinking water.
I think prevention, using integrative medicine, is the way to obtain optimal health. As such I will also do my very best to prevent you getting sick, rather than just treat your illness. Take a read if you are interested in avoiding cancer, cardiovascular disease, treating your depression or anxiety.
I will give you the time you deserve.
I am a holistic doctor … an “integrative” or “functional” physician. Good holistic doctors and good naturopaths treat you as the sum of a complex number of “systems.” For example, what happens in your gut is intricately connected to your heart, bones, thyroid and your brain. Too many doctors, and even some specialists, lose touch with this fundamental truth.
There are some people who don’t bother to think about their health. Yet many of them will one day, usually when they are older, be forced to confront an upsetting diagnosis in the local medical centre, A and E department, or hospital. It is then usually too late. Unfortunately, that’s how “the system” works for too many people on the Sunshine Coast at present. Alternatively, it is much wiser to realise your health is not the result of a lottery. We all should manage your own destiny and control our health by using integrative medicine.
If you would like to get the most out of your body and your mind, to live a life that realises your full potential, I would love to help you. I like to think I work well with our good naturopaths Kim Carolan and Danielle Roberts. We can offer you truly holistic complementary medicine… so you don’t become a statistic.
We have set up a new website. This site will grow over time with new information. So please read the blogs…they contain interesting information about complementary medicine. Bear in mind that practitioners often find it difficult to explain everything during consultations, so I hope this information will help get knowledge about complementary medicine out there.
