At Health Change we believe the journey of recovery, restoration and re-energising may take time and you will need to invest your time into this journey. We can’t do it without you, nor can we do it for you, but we can empower you with the knowledge of how. Lifestyle changes, nutritional changes, emotional and physical awareness and perhaps the use of supplements to aide your recovery will all help you on your wellness journey with rejuvenation, energy and improved well-being. Integrative medicine is a philosophy of healthcare with a focus on individual patient care and combining the best of conventional western medicine and evidence-based complementary medicine and therapies, lifestyle interventions for the treatment and prevention of disease within current mainstream medical practice.
Integrative Medicine reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, health care professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing. The patient-practitioner relationship is collaborative and supportive, empowering patients to take control of their health and wellbeing. It takes into account the physical, psychological, social and spiritual wellbeing of the person with the aim of using the most appropriate, safe and evidence-based treatments available.
Why Health Change?
Our integrative medical practice will make use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare providers and disciplines to achieve the best health outcome for each individual patient and will implement conventional diagnostic and prescribing approaches alongside innovative screening technologies and nutritional and lifestyle therapy. We will empower patients with a wider range of treatment, screening and prevention options, a collaborative relationship, and an emphasis on preventative medicine.
Integrative general practice focuses not only on alleviating symptoms of illness, but on finding and treating the cause. Patients are encouraged to take control of their health with the full support of the Health Change team to achieve disease control and prevention, fewer trips to the doctor, and better overall health and wellbeing. Personal and professional experiences have influenced Dr. Sally Chapman’s motivation to provide this much needed service in Hobart and Tasmania.
We are living in times of uncertainty in all aspects of life. It will require many changes at all levels for better outcomes to be achieved both personally and globally. It starts with each of us. If change is needed let’s start with our own changes. We all have the capacity to re-establish the paradigms of our wellbeing if we know how.
Change can transform you!
