Now you find yourself here with me, please take a few moments to read on. It might be the start of a journey for us together...
Because, when it comes to cancer, there really could be another way.
I'm sure you have so many demands on your time and energy and there's so much I want to say to you... Perhaps most importantly whatever the circumstances you and your family are facing, there could be another way.
If you are ill with cancer, perhaps you find yourself feeling hopeless, powerless and full of despair. Maybe you have been desperately searching the Internet, looking for a way forward that intuitively feels right to you but instead finding yourself confused and demoralised, unsure of what to believe or who to trust. Somehow the more you think, the more you search, the more panicky you become.
You could stop looking now... you've found someone who could help. Someone who can understand you and what you may be facing. That's because I've been there myself and on more than one occasion. Both my mother and my daughter have survived cancer. I learned all I could, and did all I could, to help them because I knew there had to be a way of supporting their conventional treatment to give them the best possible chance of getting better. Please take a few moments and read on and see if this approach might feel right for you.
I qualified as a medical doctor in 2002 and through professional and personal experience my horizons have broadened and I have evolved my own Integrative Medical Practice
My work with patients centres around simple and natural ways of supporting their conventional medical treatment, with a focus on what they can do to support themselves better.

I wonder what has brought you to visit my website?
Maybe you or someone close to you has just received a diagnosis of cancer. Maybe you are already receiving treatment. Or perhaps you've just been told that your cancer has returned. Maybe you have been told that your conventional prognosis is poor, or perhaps you've been told there is nothing more that can be done .
What if there were other options...
I began pioneering this approach with my mother and daughters illnesses almost 6 years ago. Since 2009 I have been adding my integrative programme to the conventional NHS treatment of adults and also children with cancer.
If you would like to hear first hand about how integrative programmes can support patients you might like to share some of my patient's kindly shared experiences detailed in the kind words section of my site.
My programmes are carefully formulated to compliment and support mainstream cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy. They are safe, without uncomfortable side effects. Simply put they work to gently and effectively maximise well being and aim to strengthen, protect and nurture the body as a whole.
“ First do no harm."
There are many Clinics around the world that use holistic based approaches centring around specialised dietary therapy and natural methods without the use of drugs, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. They report cases of successfully facilitating their cancer patients into remission and beyond. My programme allows you to bring the best of both worlds together, enjoying exactly the same approach that supported my family when we most needed it.
I love this work. It's truly where my heart is and I feel privileged every time I am able to share another person's journey as they choose integrated cancer care.
Reading this is the beginning of an opportunity for you to experience for yourself... Simply put it could be life changing.
My Own Family's Story.
My own learning about cancer treatment has not been purely academic. I was devastated when both my mother and my thirteen month old daughter were diagnosed with cancer. My mother with breast cancer and my daughter with leukaemia. Despite my medical training I found myself plunged into shock and overwhelming confusion.
Exactly six years ago next month my own family's world was turned upside down when we learned that Grace had leukaemia. We were told Grace had about a 50% chance of cure. I remember thinking on that day as I looked at her in her cot seemingly so unaware of how our world seemed to be caving in how can I make sure she's not in the 50% that don't get better? I was both her mother and a doctor. I had to find a formula which i felt could optimise and facilitate her chances of recovery.
Both my mother and daughter received excellent NHS care and me, well simply I read and researched absolutely everything possible that I felt could potentially support their conventional treatment.
I searched with a steadfast determination. There was no better motivation than that which I experienced.
I realised how, contrary to what some people think, the conventional and elements of what's often termed complimentary medicine can be blended with a beautifully effective synergy. Further, I realised how complimentary medicine in some of its forms offered particular therapeutic benefits.
“ Let food be thy medicine , thy medicine shall be thy food.”
I watched many heart warming changes, which supported a period of tremendous growth for us all through cancer and beyond. When I reflect back life wasn't so much on hold anymore. I began to feel a deep sense of trust in our hearts that Grace and my mother would get well.
Despite the poor prognosis my mother was given, her cancer having already spread to her lymphatic system, before she was diagnosed, seven years on she tells me she now feels more healthy than even before she became ill. She is now enjoying a very busy retirement with four grandchildren to enjoy.
My daughter who was given a 'middling chance' of cure is a beautiful, bouncy, vibrant seven year old. She tells me she also wants to be a doctor now! We call her Amazing Grace. She has been an truly inspirational teacher.
We are fortunate that both Grace and my mother responded very well to their conventional chemotherapy treatment and were also able to receive benefit from a supportive complimentary programme.
