Hi everybody, I am working with One Health Clinics, a specialist clinic helping eligible patients across Australia access plant-based therapies.
Patients suffering from certain medical conditions (including epilepsy, chronic pain and cancer-related symptoms) are legally able to be prescribed plant-based therapies if traditional options for treatments have been exhausted.
I am a GP who works in plant medicines as well as Rural locums in GP/ED settings, so my schedule can be variable as I try to help out rural GP clinics and remote EDs that do not have Doctors available.
In the past I have worked in a holistic clinic, as well as mental health, youth health, emergency, rural clincs, and skin cancer clinics.
I cannot prescribe psilocybin.
I am “Brand Agnostic”; though I do prefer Australian GMP companies who have their plants growing in Australian soil. But, not always.
I do not prescribe to ineligible patients, recreational users, nor do I dispense large quantities of repeat scripts. I review my patients regularly as per TGA standards.
I have long 40 min initial consultations to get to know you and find the best treatment option.
I am not affiliated with any company or brand and therefore can prescribe ethically and conscientiously without conflict of interest.
I aim to write low quantitiy products (ie max 3), with low volumes of THC, and will review every 2-3 months, so I wont prescribe 6 months + of scripts. That's how I'm comfortable and if that is not going to suit then go elsewhere.
I am also very tough on particularly males aged <30 and they need to have evidence that they have tried other treatments first. If not, please go elsewhere.
From Mon 13th November, all bookings will go through the new OneHealth Website and will use HotDoc as the software underlying the booking.
New patient appointments last ~ 40 minutes for $199.
Existing Patients can book for a 15 min consult for $80

We delve into the plant's therapeutic potential proposing its ability to reshape neural pathways and challenge patients' self-narratives. The discussion extends to its role in treating PTSD, acknowledging its initial emotional intensity as a pathway to holistic healing.
The episode concludes with a profound exploration of plant medicine's potential in managing pain conditions and alleviating emotional distress.
