I hold three undergraduate Bachelor of Health Science degrees in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and a postgraduate Masters in Public Health. I was awarded by my college for being the first triple-degree CAM graduate in Australia. I am currently a postgraduate researcher Ph.D. student.
Previously, I worked in public health as an acupuncturist at the Northern Hospital, Melbourne, where I conducted a world-first trial entitled 'A Prospective, Randomised Control Trial of Acupuncture for Select Common Conditions within the Emergency Department', and in Box Hill Hospital’s Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Unit. I also worked as a sports nutritionist and acupuncturist for an Australian rules football team. Additionally, I conducted a pilot study entitled, 'Determining the effect of a homeopathic medium potency of calcium on the bone density of women as measured by bone ultrasonometry: a pilot study comprising one year'. My Masters dissertation was entitled ‘Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Plant-derived Antimicrobials in WHO Priority Pathogens’.
I work as a CAM consultant whereby I offer online consultations, have an extensive herbal dispensary, and supply herbal tonics globally. I treat diseases whereby the biomedical route has been exhausted, such as when antibiotics are no longer effective. I specialise in herbal medicine and scalp acupuncture for stroke and neurodegenerative diseases. I am a health researcher and writer and present, moderate, and chair international CAM conferences on topics focusing on health promotion and disease prevention. I have a particular interest in the bioaccumulation of toxic chemicals and persistent organic pollutants, and in their biotransformation by the human liver.
As a mother who has raised my children without antibiotics, there is not a childhood infectious disease I have not seen, nor cannot treat, using natural medicine.
