"I have been in a Functional Medicine Holistic practice for over 16 years helping patients to fall pregnant and I fully understand how treating the underlying cause is of utmost importance. I had a patient who had been struggling to fall pregnant for four years before consulting me. One of her symptoms was candida. After we cleared the candida she easily had her baby. In fact, her fourth child is a year old now. She conceived the other 3 children very easily".
About Dr Debbie Smith
MY HEALTH STORY
I have spent over 20 years studying and learning to keep up with how to best address your concerns from a functional medicine, eastern medicine and homeopathic approach. I believe this combination is true health-based medicine and will be the future of disease prevention and ensuring excellent health. This is why I chose this field over other healthcare occupations.
I use a blend of modern scientific (latest functional medicine tests) and ancient techniques (acupuncture) to treat patients in a holistic manner. I am consistently studying the latest techniques and findings in the alternative medicine arena, and often provide input to leading health columns, programs and conferences on request. I am qualified as a homeopath with an M.Tech. (Hom.) Cum Laude from the University of Johannesburg.
I am one of only a handful of practitioners with dual qualifications as a Homeopath and Acupuncturist. I advocate a healthy lifestyle and enjoy sport, and activity. I am an avid adventure racer and have completed the Absa Cape Epic (Toughest Mountain bike race over 8 days), Ironman South Africa (3.8km swim, 180km cycle and 42km run) and Comrades Marathon (87km run Ultimate Human Race).
