Dr. Edward Osborne

Dr. Edward Osborne is a specialist general practitioner with an interest in integrative medicine. He has been living on the Sunshine Coast for 13 years. He has extensive experience both in hospital medicine and general practice, in various contexts around Australia.

Through these experiences Dr. Osborne has come to consider that one of his first duties as a health practitioner is to identify the first causes behind a patient’s symptoms. He also considers that utilizing natural therapies, including dietary changes, vitamins, minerals, herbs and physical therapies is an excellent first port of call with regards to building up a solid base of health, from which to tackle any chronic health situation.

This holistic approach appears to be much needed in terms of true health restoration. For some patients this may also mean addressing emotional blocks, belief systems, and other parts of their being as well.
