Dear Patients,

It is important to me that your medical needs are met with the highest standards of modern western medicine and that you are also given the opportunity to access evidence based integrative therapies. As an Integrative General Practitioner, I am happy to discuss taking a “whole person” approach to your health.

Women’s health and hormone therapy is another area that can often be a challenge to navigate through. It is complex and often multifactorial with significant changes occurring with hormones during the life cycle. I adopt an evidence based and up to date approach in this area and am an antenatal shared care provider with the Mercy Hospital for Women, a member of the Australian Menopause Society and certified with Family Planning Victoria in sexual and Reproductive Health.

Weight management can be an issue for so many and it often stems from hormonal dysregulation and stress. Have you ever considered an integrative approach to weight management?

I have also developed a special interest in medicinal cannabis therapy and travelled internationally to hear from experts in the field. I would love to share with you my experience in this area and help navigate this often challenging therapeutic option.

During a consultation we will delve deep into your health history. We will discuss your timeline and the risks, triggers and current issues which have led to where your health is at this particular point in time. Wherever your health is at, I am happy to meet you at this place and work with you to get to the place you would like to be at.

Regards,Dr Tamara Nation
