Dr Ray Mullen

M.B.B.S, Dip R.A.C.O.G, FRACGP, Cert Integrative Medicine

I am a general medical practitioner with additional qualifications is integrative medicine. This means I work with best available medical evidence in both medical and complementary approaches to health such as nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle interventions. My approach is helpful for patients, who want to understand more about their health from an integrative perspective, and how to make changes that are both beneficial to the body and satisfying in relationships.

Integrative approaches are particularly useful in dealing with fatigue and exhaustion syndromes, hormone imbalances, auto-immune diseases, allergies and fibromyalgia. It can provide adjunctive care in recovering from major illness and cancers.

I consider the impact of environmental and emotional stress on your body and it’s impact on aging. I believe the positive health benefits of joy and connection are an important part of your recovery. Your readiness to change is discussed and you are welcome to bring questions.

Your first visit with me is 50 minutes. This allows me time to review your health information and get to know you with enough time for a physical and lifestyle examination, medical diagnosis and development of a treatment plan. If you are healthy and you not on medication I encourage you to see me annually to review your health. I use this time to get to know you in good health, look proactively at your lifestyle, environmental and emotional factors. It’s also a good opportunity for you to ask questions and become more proactively involved in your health.

I may recommend investigations not covered by Medicare that provide a profile of your gut health and/or hormone status. Your treatment may then involve a careful monitoring and adjustments to specific combinations of nutritional supplementation, bio-identical hormone replacement, and your attention to lifestyle changes that can restore your body’s capacity to heal itself.

Allow 30 minutes for acupuncture treatments, and schedule sessions in advance. Allow quiet time afterwards to maximise benefits and tell me when you notice lasting changes.

I teach yoga and meditation as a self-reflection and healing practice. I also believe it is valuable complementary form of exercise for strength and flexibility in addition to your normal exercise program.
