About this Speaker
Dr Mark Donohoe is one of Australia’s best-known practitioners of Integrative Medicine. He graduated from Sydney University 1980, and after starting a family, began practice on the Central Coast New South Wales in 1983. The patients of his new practice led him into the fields of Environmental Medicine and Nutritional Medicine, and he was awarded fellowships from the Australian Society of Environmental Medicine (ASEM), the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), and more recently the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM).
Over his 37 years in medical practice, Mark has specialised in the fields of chronic fatigue syndrome, environmental and occupational toxicology, and central sensory sensitivities including multiple chemical sensitivity and electro-hypersensitivity. He has numerous publications in the medical literature to his name, and has been active for decades in the education of doctors and complementary health practitioners.He does not shrink from the occasional political battle such as the attempts of the Medical Board of Australia last year to curtail the majority of Integrative Medicine practices in this country.
Mark works with his wife, Fiona, at Mosman Integrative Medicine in Sydney. While he looks after the patients seeking the causes of their illnesses and diseases, Fiona heads up the healthcare side of the practice with natural healthcare practitioners and classes in yoga, Qigong, pregnancy yoga, meditation, mindfulness and movement.
Mark and Fiona work together with an underlying philosophy that health in all its forms is the best prevention of disease, and that most disease is best managed by clean air, clean food, clean water and a commitment to a lifestyle that is joyful, challenging and health enhancing.
