Holistic Care

Our team believes that we can better care for our patients when healthcare is based on relationships, trust, collaboration and understanding. Personalised medicine views each patient as genetically and biochemically unique. We focus on nurturing the patient, not just addressing the disease. Based on conventional scientific evidence; individualised medicine understands that our health and wellbeing is connected in a complex web of relationships. Through clinical assessments, we get an understanding of your particular underlying issues and apply specific treatment and advice that assists in the body’s natural healing mechanism.

Whether you are experiencing symptoms of fatigue, stress, chronic disease, accelerated aging, recurrent infections, complex neurological or environmental illnesses, infertility, weight gain, poor sleep, depression, digestive symptoms or brain and cognition concerns; the underlying patterns of your body’s dysfunction are treated with established practices of functional, integrative, nutritional and environmental medicine.

We combine in-depth knowledge of neuroplasticity, epigenetics, microbiome and mitochondrial science to understand the pieces of your health puzzle. This may be particularly useful when you have a chronic or complex condition and want to understand how to improve function as well as take further preventive and multi-faceted approaches to optimise your health outcome.

By identifying the root causes in the mechanical, biochemical, physiological, neurological or psycho spiritual levels of your health, we create a treatment plan to help address your chronic conditions and support the improvement of your overall health.

Experience A New Kind of care

Conveniently located in Edgecliff Court (3 minutes’ walk from Edgecliff train station), our medical practice opened its doors to the community in October 2018.

Upon your visit, you’ll discover a purpose-built medical practice, designed to create a modern and healing space. The effect is one of comfort and nurture, not rushed or impersonal.

Tailored programs of care are co-ordinated by our Patient Advocates for those with chronic health conditions. We also support clients with other health concerns and those that are looking to optimise their overall performance or gut-brain health.

Giving back with Next Aid

What is Next Aid?

At Next Practice, we want to create pathways for those who may be facing challenges, providing them with the support and resources they need to succeed. That's why we’ve partnered with UNICEF Australia to support their maternal and neonatal health program in PNG. We call it our Next Aid initiative.

Over the next three years Next Practice have committed to providing funds that improve maternal, newborn and child healthcare, with a focus on contributing to Tetanus-Diphtheria vaccinations, helping children in the region to thrive and fulfil their potential.
