EP 51: Dr Susan Oldfield

Why an Interated Approach to Medicine is better. CATEGORYHEALTH

Dr Susan Oldfield hails originally from England and completed her medical training in the UK at UCL medical school, obtaining MBBS.

After this she went on to complete a Diploma in Family Planning as well as a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, whilst completing her GP training and gaining the qualification MRCGP in the UK.

Her family and her decided to move to NZ in 2004. She then obtained GP qualifications in NZ, FRCGP.

Since then Susan has been working as a GP in a busy urban practice in New Plymouth.
She decided to pursue her interest in Integrative Medicine as she feels that combining a conventional approach with a more holistic approach provides clients with the best of both worlds. Because GP consultations are so time-limited, it is difficult to investigate problems in depth. With more time and an integrative approach, Susan is able to add much more to a consultation.
In this interview we discuss why the conventional medicine model wasn't working for her anymore, what an "Integrated Practitioner" means and what she sees coming in the future in the world of medicine, health and wellbeing.

I am getting my mojo back with regards to my health and running after treatment for breast cancer, I connected with Lisa as I was looking for positive influences from people who are long distance runners and understand our mindset. Lisa’s podcasts have been a key factor in getting me out of a negative space where I allowed others limiting beliefs to stop me from following my heart and what I believe is right for me. After 18 months of being in cancer recovery mode I wanted to get out of the cancer mindset and back to achieving goals that had been put aside. Listening to Pushing The Limits has put me onto other great podcasts, and in the process I have learnt so much and am on a pathway to a much better place with my mindset and health. Thanks so much Lisa for doing what you do and always being you.
