"My approach to medicine and healing is quite fundamental. Informed by the tenets of ancient holistic therapeutic traditions, bringing to this wisdom emerging current scientific research, I help my patients to explore their health challenges and design individually-tailored wellness programs to help them to live at their best every day. Modern living can bring with it great complexity, which requires a comprehensive therapeutic approach for managing dis-ease today. The art of the holistic approach is to deliver a treatment solution, which can address a range of often-related health challenges with a simple and sustainable recovery plan. In my consultations I will usually address health fundamentals such as achieving optimal nutrition and hydration, essential daily movement and exercise, enjoyment of social and creative activities, living in a clean and harmonious environment and getting enough restorative sleep. I have always found that integrative teamwork, such as is offered at Genbiome, can deliver far more impressive outcomes than with the care of a single practitioner. Our bodies and minds are exquisitely designed and need to be fastidiously maintained to achieve peak performance. The holistic health consultant can offer you guidance to make the best choices in every moment for your entire wellbeing and sanity."

Please note, Giselle Cooke is available on Thursdays for face-to-face or Telehealth. Fridays are Telehealth only.
