‘As an Integrative GP, my focus is disease prevention, and on assisting my patients achieve and maintain optimal health.’
– Dr Vinesh Singh | Ryde Natural Health Clinic
What is an Integrative GP?
The aim of an Integrative GP is to assist you to achieve and then maintain optimal health. Optimal health is about more than simply the covering-over of symptoms, it’s about identifying the root causes of poor health and then taking steps to address those root causes.
Integrative general practice can still utilise all of the tried and trusted methods that are currently used by mainstream GP’s but as well as doing this it also aims to take a look at the bigger picture of a patient’s health- considering all aspects of your lifestyle including sleep, stress levels, activity levels, nutrition, supplementation, mental health and other environmental factors. Through a combination of genomic testing, functional testing, as well as conventional western medical tests, Dr Vinesh Singh can guide you along the path from sickness to lasting health.
