Graduate of the University of Manchester 1988 and post graduate fellowship of the Australasian College of Physicians in 2000 and a specialist in Geriatric Medicine. I have published mainly in allopathic medicine in the areas of osteoporosis, delirium and other general medical topics. I became interested in spirituality in health as the current allopathic medical approach fails to address the spiritual origin of medical symptoms and ultimately disease.
