Welcome to the new Oasis Integrative Medicine centre. It is with an exciting sense of new possibilities that Dr Jonathan Turtle has decided to set up, as of the 1st November 2017, the Oasis Integrative Medicine centre at 25 Myahgah Rd in the heart of Mosman.
Dr Turtle is one of Australia’s leading specialists in Integrative medicine, with over 30 years experience. The move to Oasis Integrative Medicine will enable us to provide a broader range of co-ordinated services, including a number of allied health professionals, to work as a truly integrative team practice in order to optimise the path to recovery, health and wellness.
The new practice is in a lovely Federation home located across from the Alan Border Oval, next door to the Mosman Art Gallery and a few doors down from the Fourth Village Providore. There is ample free parking close by in the large council car park at the top of Vista St, and it is a short walk from the Spit Junction public transport hub. There is disabled and stroller access on the side entrance to the rooms and Disabled parking very close on Art Gallery Way.
Integrative Medicine (IM) is a branch of medicine which involves having a very broad and physiological focus, both in the diagnosis as well as in the treatment of disease. It incorporates both western medicine as well as complementary natural medicine, and looks into the influence of individual genetic variability, diet and lifestyle factors, environmental toxic exposure, stress and psychosocial issues together with the natural history of symptoms across all systems within the body.
Treatment approaches utilise diet, lifestyle management, nutritional therapies, bioidentical hormones, and pharmacological medication if and when appropriate.
IM is an approach which is applicable to any medical condition, but the reality is that it is most useful and applicable for managing chronic and complex disease. I have maintained throughout my career a very broad general interest in all areas of health and disease, but I do have special interests in:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Atypical infections including tick born infections such as Borreliosis
- Gut problems, food intolerances, Irritable Bowel Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Hormonal problems, Menopause, Thyroid disease, Adrenal disorders
- Metabolic Syndrome, Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, Obesity management
- Mental Health, Anxiety, Depression, Autism Spectrum, Pyrrole Disorder
- Anti-aging management, Preventative health planning
