Fred’s complementary and natural medicine journey started more than 10 years ago when he was confronted with a life-threatening illness. Little hope of cure offered by conventional treatment and search for alternatives led to his involvement with natural therapies. Inspired by the success of managing his condition naturally and the desire to improve peoples’ health, Fred developed a passion for natural therapies and completed bachelor degrees in both natural medicine and acupuncture.
Always putting the patient first Fred places emphasis on empowering of patients, actively cooperates with other healthcare professionals and strongly focuses on scientific research to help improve clinical outcomes.
As a qualified acupuncturist, naturopath, herbalist and HemaviewTM practitioner, Fred combines elements of both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Natural Medicine. His acupuncture focus is on pain management and the treatment of musculoskeletal issues. Due to personal circumstances he has a special interest in cancer and supports people through all stages of their cancer journey.
