A Journey into Complementary Medicine with Dr Macintosh

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

Hey there! My name is Dr Macintosh, and I am a registered Homeopath and Acupuncturist based in Edenvale, South Africa. I've always had an intense desire to help others, which is what led me to pursue a career in complementary medicine.

The Journey of Dr. Macintosh: From Sports to Complementary Medicine

Dr Macintosh's journey began in sports, where I obtained a BCom in Sport Management and applied it to martial arts training. Today, I teach Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, and Self-defense to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle and find balance in mind, body, and spirit.

Understanding the Power of Complementary Medicine

As I progressed in my martial arts journey, I found myself wanting to do more for people, especially when they became sick or injured. This is what motivated me to pursue a 6-year Master's degree in Homeopathy. I've always found complementary medicine to be effective in providing relief for many conditions while minimizing adverse effects from medication.

Once qualified and practicing, I was presented with the opportunity to continue my learning in Chinese Medicine Acupuncture. I was thrilled, as I had always wanted to study acupuncture since it aligned with the philosophies I teach in martial arts. I completed a 2-year postgraduate diploma in Acupuncture, and I now find myself fully prepared and able to assist all those who come through my doors.

That's why I decided to start this blog. I want to help educate people on the benefits of complementary medicine and empower them to make better choices regarding their health and well-being. Remember, knowledge is power, and we all have the power to take control of our health.
