What is a Holistic or Integrated GP Consultation?

Dr Paula Martin is a GP with a special interest in Mind Body Medicine and Holistic Health.

Dr Paula offers specialised GP consultations. During your consultation Dr Paula will combine her training in Western Medicine and her experience in Mind Body Medicine, to explore your health concern. The consultation involves looking at whole-person strategies that address the underlying factors influencing your health, rather than just treating the symptoms of disease. This integrated approach to health invites you to take an active role in your own heath and wellbeing.

Integrated Medicine believes in the body’s natural ability to support it’s own healing process and come back into balance.

Influenced by the work of Dr Craig Hassid (Monash University), this Consultation explores your health concern in relation to seven pillars of health:
  • Education
  • Stress management
  • Spirituality
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition & Diet
  • Connectivity and self care
  • Environment
