Serious Illness


If you are undergoing medical treatment for serious illness, you may wish to independently support your healing process using evidence-based natural methods. This is the premise of Integrative Medicine, the next level of health care. David Holden has had over 25 years experience in hard-to-treat cases and holistic cancer support; and his team are some of the most highly qualified and experienced in New Zealand.

What we treat

We support patients with diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and many chronic conditions, some of which are not adequately treatable by mainstream healthcare. We are able to do this because we don’t diagnose according to specific diseases, nor do we prescribe disease-specific medicines; we look at you as a whole person and support you at all levels.

How we assess you

We use advanced health assessment tools to look at a wide range of health factors, including live blood analysis, antioxidant levels, and the many markers of premature ageing. We also consider all aspects of lifestyle, including sleep, stress levels, relationships, diet, and activity; because these all play a part in your health.


Treatment plans

Our treatment plans, using evidence-based Naturopathy, are comprehensive, and aim to provide complete physiological  and psychological support. These include:

  • Diet plans to support digestion, detoxification and nourishment.
  • Practitioner-grade* nutraceutical supplements based on clinical evidence.
  • Herbal and homeopathic medicines that are safe and effective.
  • Lifestyle and activity recommendations.
  • Psychological support including counseling, meditation, and HeartMath® stress management.
  • And supporting modalities and practitioners (including medical) suited to your condition.

Our team of practitioners offers a synergistic approach to your health, which serious-illness patients have found extremely helpful for regaining health and quality of life.

*There are different qualities of supplements: cheap “supermarket” types that are full of fillers and low-quality ingredients; medium-grade types found in health food stores; and practitioner-only grades that contain premium therapeutic ingredients used in clinics and hospitals overseas.



As you are aware, in spite of the great benefits of integrative medicine, we are not funded by government. We therefore have to consider your budget, and possible access to health insurance, when formulating your health plan.

We source the best possible products that we have found to work effectively, and provide you access to purchase them direct from suppliers (after a consultation). Our consultation rates are extremely fair in comparison to what medical health professionals earn under funding.

We offer access to FeeFunders, a plan in which you can spread your payments.

Your experience

We offer a professional service that is compassionate, with some of the most experienced practitioners in New Zealand. We do not offer quick fixes, because in all honesty, good health takes a while to regain, especially if you have been suffering for a long time.

Most of our plans take 3 to 6 months or longer, and consist of initial consultation and assessments, achievable programmes, and ongoing reassessment so you can objectively monitor your progress. We help you create a healthy lifestyle at your own pace, for as long as you wish.

When you have regained normal health, you may continue to see us for a Wellness and/or Anti-Ageing Programme to maintain optimal health for life.
