Dr Kathy Wallace
FRACGP, BMBS BHSc Hons, BA
I am a conventionally trained GP who has an interest in integrative medicine. I have been working in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. I completed my undergraduate studies at University of Adelaide, obtaining a Bachelor of Health Science with Honours in Pathology. After commencing graduate-entry medicine at Flinders University, I joined the RAAF as a medical officer and served 9 years.
I have travelled extensively to Europe, the Middle East, and to a few destinations in North America and Far East Asia, but my true love is Australia. Ever since moving here 27 years and 9 months ago, I have felt I am home.
Presently, my interests have taken a turn into the world of natural and integrative medicine. I enjoy delving into my patients' genetic ancestry in order to determine potential strengths and inherent susceptibilities. I consider preventative medicine important and I strive to obtain the best results for my patients. I believe the intersection between genetics, environment and diet is where health issues can manifest, and this is where targeted supports can make a difference. I have an interest in breast cancer prevention, women and men's health, and all general practice related problems as well.
I believe that we are on a new frontier of individualised genetic medicine and that a 'one-size-fits-all' approach may not be helpful for everyone. I look forward to assisting my patients in attaining better health and being part of a team approach in helping them achieve their goals. I enjoy working with motivated patients and feel encouraged by seeing results with improving health parameters, but I am also aware that at times the straight forward approach to medical and biochemical issues is not enough. I have found that for some patients with chronic challenges we have to delve deeper to find our answers. Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal, provided the necessary biochemical and nutritional supports are made available. It is a great time to be practising medicine as numerous rewarding tests are presently available that provide beneficial answers to conundrums.
Whatever your challenges are, and however long you have been struggling, please take courage in the fact that there are people who care and who wish to come along side you in your quest for excellent health.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
