Dr Hale’s Approach

Thorough Medical Assessments

Dr Hale’s private practice focuses on:

  • Midlife Women’s Health – menstrual disorders and menopausal issues
  • Undiagnosed and chronic gut disorders (not inflammatory bowel disease)
  • Chronic infections, recurrent infections, and long COVID
  • Mycotoxin illness, mast cell disorders
  • Cognitive decline

Using her decades of clinical experience and expertise, Dr Hale is renowned for her ability to efficiently identify the swiftest investigation strategy needed to get to the bottom of your health/medical issues.

She has also become expert at identifying a single or a multitude of contributing/aggravating factors underlying your symptoms or illness.

Even if a disease or illness is not yet present, her comprehensive assessment will present an ideal opportunity to learn about where you are not in optimal health and how you can take steps to realise optimal health and reduce or reverse the evolution to disease or illness in future”.

Dr Hale recognises and understands the existence of optimal health and the fact that there is nearly always HEALTH before there is DISEASE. Through her additional Functional Medicine training, Dr Hale has become adept at interpreting patient symptoms, and teasing out important clues that the symptoms are giving about the patients’ health/disease process. In this way, she can devise truly patient-centred management strategies that are aimed at slowing or even preventing the progression to illness or disease.

Dr Hale has also become expert in sorting through the multiple aspects of the physical body (gut, metabolism, and the immune, circulatory and neurological systems), mental/emotional health and the environment (diet and surrounds) and clarifying how each are contributing to unexplained symptoms or illness. In this way, Dr Hale has become an expert in putting the ‘whole picture’ of the patient together, interpreting investigation results and devising personalised management programs directed at reducing the triggers and perpetuators of symptoms/illness.
