LifeXMed International Clinic is the first of its kind health centre modeled on the best in the world German, UK, North American, Mexican and Asian Integrative Medicine health and cancer clinics, and dedicated specifically to the extension of life span and the enhancement of quality of life.
This is achieved by adopting a multidisciplinary, holistic, medical–complementary health approach to disease prevention, management and anti-ageing therapy.
The team is headed by Dr Steven Gunn (MB.ChB.BSc.CVIT.) an Integrative Medicine Physician and General Practitioner and Mr Hugo Minnaar (B.Tech Clin Tech (Critical Care), FCCS, Cert ANA, BLS, ACLS, Tacmed & ITLS) a Critical Care Technologist and Emergency Medicine expert, who have a combined experience of more than 40 years in general medicine and emergency medicine. Dr Gunn and Mr Minnaar are supported by and work in association with a wide range of multi-disciplined, medical, allied medical, integrative health and emergency medicine and technical experts and networks.
The advice and treatment offered at LifeXMed is professional and multi-disciplinary, and may be conducted in tandem or parallel with conventional medical treatment (e.g. surgery, chemo, radiation or hormone therapy) and complementary or integrative medicine.
If the patient requests not to undergo conventional medical treatment, but chooses instead (with informed consent) to use an integrative or alternative health treatment program, LifeXMed offers such programs.
Our approach to cancer management is the same as our approach to all diseases, that is, holistic and multi-disciplined.
It is imperative that the patient consults a medical doctor at LifeXMed or elsewhere e.g. surgeon / oncologist and undergoes the necessary medical investigations to determine the nature, location, type and staging of their disease (e.g. blood tests, scans and biopsies). Once all the necessary tests and investigations have been completed, the healthcare consultant at LifeXMed prepares a treatment protocol especially designed for the patient. (Personalized Program)
If the patient has already consulted a medical specialist, or undergone surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy, then the patient will be required to bring all the relevant information with them to LifeXMed International Clinic. This applies to other medical disorders as well e.g. Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Auto-Immune Diseases, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, HIV/AIDS etc.
