I commenced Integrative Medicine practice in Hobart city in 1988. I moved the practice to Fern Tree Tasmania, where I have consulted since 1995.



EMF (Electromagnetic Fields):


I have been consulting with patients suffering harmful symptoms of exposure to EMF emitting devices since 1993. Over the last ten years and especially the last two years, an ever-increasing number of people have consulted me who have symptoms of ill health in relation to exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR).


I have attended numerous conferences on EMF and has consulted and had discussions with leading EMF authorities including Prof Beatrice Golomb USA, Prof Dominique Belpomme France, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe UK, Dr Devra Davis USA, Associate Prof Olle Johansson Sweden, Dr Juliet Williams Scotland.


I have introduced biological markers for Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) testing into Australia as per the research of Professor Domonique Belpomme through an Integrative Pathology laboratory in Melbourne Australia ‘NutriPath’.


2018-2021: I gave community presentations and lectured on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity in the Byron Shire, Perth, Brisbane, Randwick Shire, Cronulla Shire, Sutherland Shire, Mundaring Shire, Glenhaven Shire, SEEN (Safe EMF Education Network) Adelaide and numerous tele-conferences internationally and Australia-wide.





I was an expert witness in the case of McDonald and Comcare 2013. this case is in the public domain (1). Dr McDonald was my first EMF related patient in 1993. The Judge ordered in favour of Dr McDonald. This was a world-wide landmark judgement for a person affected by electromagnetic fields (EMF) in the workplace.


I provided a medico-legal report on my diagnosis of a patient Mr Evans as an expert witness in Evans v NBNCo.Ltd [2021 QDC 227] in Queensland.


I am currently also representing other patients with medico-legal reports  who have suffered Electromagnetic Hyperesensitivity as a result of non-consensual public exposure to radiofrequency emitting devices.


2020: I lectured and presented an EMF Certification Training lecture course of 4 x 4 hour modules to medical  practitioners in South Africa in conjunction with SASIM (South African Society of Integrative Medicine). I lectured on the history and development of EMF exposure, the likely pathological mechanisms, the research on oxidative stress, genotoxic effects, neurological effects, altered neurochemistry, hormones, immunological markers and bio-markers found in Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity patients from exposure within the guidelines. The course was awarded CPD points by South African medical authorities managing GP CPD.


2021: I have been the Chair of TASEMRM (The Australian Society of Electromagnetic Radiation Medicine), comprised of Medical Doctors, Scientists and Legal Practitioners.

TASEMRM provides training in electromagnetic radiation medicine to medical practitioners in Australia and world-wide.





Media presentations Channel 7 ‘The Project’ interview concerning plight of one of my patients who has severe EHS symptoms 2017.


I have attended multiple lectures on EMF related toxicity at yearly US congresses of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. I have attended international EMF conferences in person and on-line and have participated in question sessions. I have studied the literature on the health effects of RF-EMR within the Australian Safety standard guidelines  and international safety guidelines and I am well versed in reference ranges and nomenclature from a clinical medical perspective. I have written multiple medical reports for patients suffering the effects of exposure the radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation.


I confer regularly with medical and scientific colleagues in Australia and internationally. I communicate with my professional international colleagues in science, medicine and law inclusive of Professor Dominque Belpomme, (France) Prof Olle Johansson (Sweden), Prof Beatrice Golomb, (USA) Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe (UK), Dr Sharon Goldberg (USA), Dr Devra Davis (USA), Dr Juliet Williams (Scotland) and the legal team of 5G-ILAN.


I have consulted with many patients who have developed a multitude of symptoms following exposure to devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) over the last 29 years but especially over the last ten years as electromagnetic emitting devices have become more promiscuous in the environment (non-consensually) and in our home and on our person (consensually). Where I used to consult with patients suffering this condition sporadically (one patient every few months) many years ago, I am now consulting with EHS patients on a daily basis and new potential patients are calling for a consultation frequently.
