It's sad, but practising outside of the conventional medicine model can land you in hot water. Even though patients really want this kind of care, not everyone is the system is happy about...

Dr Nijole Lloyd is not your typical, practice inside the box type GP. Before she even graduated she was fortunate to be introduced and mentored by doctors who were practising in an integrative way, and this shaped the way she has practised from the very beginning of her career as a doctor.

Nijole currently works at Integrative Health Solutions in Adelaide, Australia. This medical centre at the time of this recording has 6 Integrative Doctors and 17 Allied Health professionals covering an extensive range of therapies.

Dr Lloyd offers a wide range of treatments including; bio-identical hormone therapy, anti-aging medicine, prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma & stem cell therapy, detoxification/chelation therapy, nutritional medicine, intravenous therapies and she is currently studying functional medicine in great depth.
