About me

Location New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand
Introduction I was a conventional medical doctor, trained in Belgium and specialized in General, Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery in Alberta, Canada. One day, suddenly my back gave up for no reason and I could not move. I had to call a friend acupuncturist. Within a few minutes he had me moving and almost pain-free. My first child was then born. At 6 months he started the cycle of otitis, antibiotics, diarrhea.... I brought my son to a homeopath. With a few powders, all problems disappeared and he was never seriously ill for the next 18 years. I started studying Homeopathy. I also studied Phytotherapy (Herbalism), TCM, Nutrition, Homeobotanical Medicine, Reiki, Flower Remedies and many others. I moved with the family to South Africa, then to Israel. By the end of 2000 I was so fed up with the conventional system that I decided it was time to be totally honest and quit the quackery. So I slammed the door and resigned from the NHS. A few months later I moved to New Zealand.
