Hello! I’m Olivia, a medical practitioner and I am a holistic doctor in part because of the encouragement from my family of medics and allied health professionals.
This does not mean that I have been super healthy though! Who would have thought there could be a gap between medicine and health. We didn’t start embracing nutrition and lifestyle factors until only about 15 years ago, but it’s made a world of difference.
My family’s enthusiasm for education, research and lateral thinking showed me that health is a journey and, in many respects, a mystery- with so much knowledge continually coming to the fore, more questions are generated and sometimes there is conflicting advice… but this excites me!
