People assume that because they've got a family history of breast cancer or even if they've got the gene mutation that causes breast cancer, that that means they'll get breast cancer. That is so not true. I call it the "GABHAG" hypothesis. It's one I made up. I might make a hashtag actually. It basically stands for "Go Away Bad, Hello Awesome Genes". We can GABHAG our genes, and turn off those pesky bad genes, and we can turn on our good genes using all the techniques and tools that you and I teach our patients. So it's not a death sentence. And actually when I do my public talks, that's the main thing that people say to me... it's that. "Oh my goodness, you gave me hope. Because my Mum had breast cancer and I thought I was going to get breast cancer." It's not true. Only about 5-7% of diseases are caused by true gene inheritance. The rest are all nutrition and lifestyle or environmental

Dr Tracy Chandler | Integrative Medicine GP & Director of Wellness

Tracy completed a Biochemistry degree and then her primary medical training in England. This gave her a more in-depth knowledge of the human body than most Doctors are required to know. She then worked as a GP before doing further post-graduate training in Sports and Integrative (Wellness) Medicine and Nutrition. Her decision to specialise in Integrative Medicine partly evolved through her increasing awareness of the impact of nutrition and environment on her own personal and her patient’s health and well-being. Whilst working and raising her family she became unwell and experienced the frustration of conventional medicine not being able to provide a solution for her healing. It was then she discovered the power of Integrative (Functional) Medicine. This combines the best of conventional and complementary medicine and biochemistry to treat the root cause of poor health.
