Dr Chapman enjoys providing Integrative HealthCare to her patients, that is based on each patient’s unique biochemistry. The gut is often a focus of her treatment approach, as is adrenal and thyroid health, and hormone imbalances/rebalancing.
Dr Chapman endeavours to educate and empower her patients, and involve them in all of the decisions surrounding their treatments. She uses a blend of complementary medicines/supplements, nutrients, bio-identical hormones, and pharmaceuticals where needed.
Often treatment involves dietary changes and significant effort on the part of the patient. Dr Chapman advises re various dietary modalities, personalised for each individual, and works in conjunction with naturopaths, nutritionists or dieticians as needed. She is there to guide you on the journey and is passionately committed to the vitalistic and holistic approach to your health.
“Receding to the cause rather than proceeding to the treatment “ enables the patient to achieve a greater prospect of achieving Wellness and Ease, rather than continuing with “Dis-ease”.
“My approach to my patients wellbeing is to reverse the process of degeneration, decrease toxicity, and to encourage function in the body rather than dysfunction. My ultimate goal is for each person to be able to enjoy life to the full in every way possible”.
