"As a GP I love consulting. I love the close relationship I form with clients, but I have become frustrated by failing to address prevention and by managing treatable conditions rather than aiming for cure. I have spent many years asking do I actually make a difference? 3 years ago, with many others, we have grown “Reverse T2 Diabetes Taupo”. This community group has met weekly and learned together how to reverse T2 Diabetes and other aspects of metabolic syndrome. As a consequence, over 115 Taupo community members have reversed their diabetes. There are over 2500 people on the face book page.

Since learning about the power of Low Carb/Healthy Fat, Ketogenic Diets and fasting, I truly feel like a healer. After learning about the coach approach, with clients setting their own goals, I feel that I can walk beside clients supporting them on their healing journey. My “Why” is to make a difference as a healer and to contribute to the creation of healthier communities. I now feel that we have the tools to do this. “Reversal NZ” is the result of letting a movement grow organically over the last 3 years.

We are now linking with other clinicians and coaches to make formal programs available to many more people. As a clinician I feel invigorated and excited for the future. With powerful and effective tools, I feel I can reach my potential as a healer. To be a doctor is an honour and a privilege. I feel that I have found my place in the world and that feels extraordinary.
