Dr Jolanta Paszkiewicz

Holistic doctor Qualifications: B.MedSc., MBBS Tas uni. Background Information: Jolanta is a General Practitioner with over 30 years experience. For the past 15 years she has worked as an integrative holistic medical practitioner in Melbourne, incorporating both orthodox and complementary medicines in the management of her patients. Complementary treatments include dietary and lifestyle advice and may include nutritional supplements ie. vitamins, minerals and herbs. A holistic approach to a patient's health means addressing functional, physical, mental and emotional issues. It is treating the whole person and not just a disease or symptom. Jolanta specialises in treating women's hormonal issues eg. PMS, polycystic ovaries, pre menopause, menopause etc., with the above approach plus the use of bio-identical (human identical) hormone therapy (BHRT). This is an alternative to the conventional HRT. BHRT uses hormones which are derived from the wild yam plant or soy bean oil and have chemical structure that is identical to those produced y the human body, and thus avoiding many of the undesirable side effects of the animal derived or synthetic hormone therapy (HRT). BHRT is available on prescription from a Compounding Pharmacy.
