I am interested in working with anyone who has:

  • High levels of inflammation from allergies

  • Inflamed gut due to food intolerances

  • Frequent infections due to low immunity

  • Potential parasitic infections and high oxidative stress

  • Hormone issues involved in weight loss and circadian sleep/wake cycle.

I am also passionate about working with children who have:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

  • Fatigue and problems concentrating

  • Other behavioural problems such as disorders that may have a nutritional or environmental component.

There are usually many options available, and I prefer to try non-drug measures before resorting to the prescription pad. There is usually something that can be done to improve your condition either alongside treatment with medications or before medical drugs become necessary.

There are always supportive measures that can help. 

Usually my patients feel empowered, confident with their plan, positive about the future and that the problem they wanted to solve has been addressed and taken seriously.

I also appreciate signs and symptoms of nutrient deficiency such as low vitamin D levels, zinc, iodine, magnesium, B12 (loss of appetite), essential fatty acid deficiency and sources of inflammation such as food intolerances, gut health and malabsorption.

Iron infusions offer an alternative to months or years of oral iron replacement which causes disbiosis in the gut and can lead to symptoms of cramps, constipation and nausea. IV iron infusion is a much faster way of replacing iron and is most appropriate for those with ongoing losses or very low iron.

I also offer intravenous nutritional services in relaxed and comfortable surroundings:

  • Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C - from the observations of nutritional doctors it seems to stop the progress of a shingles rash instantly and healing begins. This would be an interesting research topic.

  • IV Magnesium & Zinc 

  • IV Glutathione - which is the body's main  antioxidant

  • IV Alpha lipoic acid - an important nutrient for the myelin sheath of neuronal axons

  • B12 injections with methylcobalamin - which is the most effective way of restoring stores of B12 in the spinal cord quickly

  • IV B-Complex - an effective way of quickly restoring b-vitamins including thiamine which those with poor general nutritional status require to maintain neurological function.

  • IV iron

 

Please carefully note: The indications for the administration of an intravenous nutrient include deficiency of that nutrient and cases where there is scientific evidence for effectiveness. If IV nutrients are administered outside these parameters then the patient has to be fully informed in order to consent to this treatment prior to evidence being available and we will take care that this does not impact on other evidence based treatments and that it will not place unnecessary financial burden on that person.

Heavy metals testing for those at risk is also available.

Dr Hemm has a MBBS from University of Tasmania.
