What do you consider an optimal level for vitamin B12?
Hi Dr Frances, my daughter suffers from hay fever on and off over the summer period. over the counter medication doesn't seem to help much. I also used to suffer when I was younger. I found with cutting out dairy & too much gluten seemed to do the trick. I have mentioned this to her but she said its too hard to cut out dairy as she doesn't like the alternative that much and it is more expensive, she eats gluten free bread and keeps sugar free most of the time. Is there anything else that would help her at all. (she is 24 and has an 8 mth old baby so it makes life difficult for her the only thing that helps is to lie down which isn;t very practical. Thanks Merry Xmas
Hi, Is your new book out ?

Dr Frances is a doctor of wellness specialising in investigative medicine. Dr Frances is a public speaker, health expert, motivator and media personality.

Dr Frances Pitsilis is a doctor of wellness specialising in investigative medicine. Dr Frances Pitsilis looks at the bigger picture – through her GP and holistic approach, she focuses on fixing the core problem, rather than masking the symptoms with modern medicine alone. “When applying integrated medicine I take the best of everything I know. I take the best out of drug-based therapy, the best out of diet and use natural therapies that are evidence-based, researched and safe,” says Dr Frances. Shortly after launching her career in general medicine more than 25 years ago, Dr Frances developed an interest in stress as she realised the majority of illnesses are related to it. About 12 - 15 years into her general practice life the interest in stress became personal when Dr Frances twice experienced and recovered from burnout. She decided to combine her study of stress with her interest in communications and achieved qualifications in occupational medicine and training in professional speaking. Her other qualifications include Nutritional Medicine and a Diploma of Obstetrics. Dr Frances is also a Fellow of the Royal NZ College of GP’s. During 2009 /2010 Dr Frances completed international qualifications in Preventative and Regenerative Medicine. Within her career Dr Frances has also held several positions of responsibility within her profession including serving on the local branch of the NZ Medical Association and being a Chairperson of the local after hour’s medical service. Dr Frances’ medical practice now involves second opinion and consulting work on stress, pain, fatigue, and complex conditions including hormonal and shift work-related problems. She takes a holistic approach and uses evidence-based natural and complementary therapies and lifestyle interventions where appropriate. Despite her busy work life, Dr Frances enjoys educating the public about stress and life management and holistic health through her speaking, training and media work. Dr Frances is a public speaker, health expert, motivator and media personality. This year, Dr Frances will be a regular personality feature as part of a new medical series on TVNZ. Dr Frances also currently writes for the beauty industry. In the past, Dr Frances has been the EasyMix Radio Doctor, a weekly resident health expert on TVNZ’s Breakfast as well as the regular ‘ask the doctor’ session on Kerre’s Café, on Sunday mornings Newstalk ZB radio.

[07/06/20]   Someone has enquired about the cost of intravenous Vitamin C. If a person is new to our clinic, they need to have a one hour consultation with our nurse which is supervise by me - this is $150. After that, and for existing patients the cost for the intravenous infusion is $299 - this includes 25 grams vitamin C, B complex and magnesium. Dr Frances

2019 THE CAFE MEDICINAL CANNABIS

Dr Frances and Debbie our Integrative Medicine Pharmacist are trained in prescribing Cannabis products

At present, they can prescribe CBD solution for anxiety, pain and sleep. It takes a few days to obtain the solution via your community pharmacist.. Also its not subsidised. However, new brands are coming onto the market and we expect to be able to access products with THC combined with the CBD that will work better for sleep and neuropathic pain in the future. These combination products will be legal if the November referendum result is YES to legalising Cannabis.

Dr Frances has already seen very good results with the ability of the CBD treatment to help people withdraw from drugs that have high addiction rates and have side effects. See here for Dr Frances' video about the subject.... https://hubs.ly/H0s85pq0

Many countries are legalising Marijuana and there is also CBD oil being prescribed therapeutically. What do we have now and what is in store in New Zealand? ...

To encourage our clients to have their IV VITAMIN C treatment in a more efficient manner, we offer a cheaper price for the vitamin C, if its during a facial treatment that lasts an hour or longer e.g. Laser Genesis, Titan, photo facial, Vampire Facial. If this July trial goes well, we may keep it going.

TruSculpt 3D Body

I've been thinking about middle age spread...... Everyone knows that you need to exercise, keep your diet healthy ( including lots of coloured veggies in season) , get help with all your nutritional imbalances and hormone imbalances Etc. Also keep good control of any of your health problems like blood pressure and diabetes. Discover whether you have a slow thyroid too.

But in the end, I have noticed that in all our clinic 'before" photos, everyone seems to get more fat around their trunk and the skin sags....

I don't meant the Visceral fat around your organs which is quite dangerous and is associated with diabetes, heart disease, stroke and dementia - that is a different scenario and requires a specific approach.

I mean you can just notice the rolls over your jeans and that you no longer feel comfortable in your clothes. If you are well, and not seriously overweight and wish to tackle this scenario, consider truSculpt at the cosmetic clinic associated with me. We now have a weekly payment scheme that starts at $23 per week.

For this month, Skinfresh has a special - do two areas ( you pay a bit more per week) and get a FREE Laser Genesis facial worth $500 !

you can have a FREE consultation to discuss this with one of our nurses.

[04/15/20]   Because we have a " New Normal" coming, here are some attitudes you can take to help you adapt to change that is beyond your control...
Find a way to accept the changes - perhaps find meaning e.g. they are to save many lives
Look for benefits - often " when one door closes another door opens"
Go into problem solving mode - make a list , be practical, and solve them one by one
Keep things in perspective - be grateful for what you have ," count your blessings"
Focus on the positive - new ways of doing things, new people, new ideas, new....
Look forward with excitement and curiosity to what life will bring
Possibly become defiant - " what doesn't kill me will make me stronger"
Remember to be kind to yourself, not just to others, and be patient - things will settle
Generally with any adversity and change " this too will pass" and people come out the other end better and stronger.

If you or anyone you know is worrying excessively, is fearful or getting bogged down with negative emotions, stay in touch with us or your Family Doctor. You can also call or text the mental health number 1737 for 24 hour per day FREE counselling.
