Anne Wilson is talking with Dr. Mark Donohoe, who graduated from Sydney University in 1980, and opened his medical practice on the Central Coast of New South Wales in 1983, where his patients led him into the fields of Environmental Medicine and Nutritional Medicine.
He has been awarded fellowships from the Australian Society of Environmental Medicine (ASEM), the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), and more recently the Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM).
With over 40 years in practice, Mark has specialised in ME/CFS along with environmental and occupational toxicology, and sensory sensitivities, including multiple chemical sensitivity. He works with his wife, Fiona, at Mosman Integrative Medicine in Sydney, and while he focuses on the causes of illnesses and diseases, Fiona manages the healthcare side of the practice where she and other natural healthcare practitioners provide consultations and classes in yoga, Qi gong, 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 diet and lifestyle that are health-enhancing. This is a fascinating and enlightening conversation about a lifelong commitment to community health and wellbeing.
