About Us

Who is your Health Professional?

My name is Dr Ulla Gerich-McGregor, a Fellow of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine (FAFRM), which is part of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.

Prior to arriving in Australia in 2002 I worked as a specialist doctor in Switzerland and Germany. Originally qualifying in Germany and Switzerland as Fellow (Specialist) in Orthopaedic Surgery, other degrees include Emergency Medicine and Sports Medicine.

With a background as an orthopaedic surgeon for over 10 years, my patients benefit greatly from my additional experience as a Rehabilitation Specialist and in Pain Management.

Looking for a different and additional approach to help patients to prevent diseases, finding the root-cause of disease rather than just treating symptoms, I trained in Functional Medicine since 2019 with ACNEM (Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine) in Australia.

Being a doctor for over 30 years and treating thousands of patients, I noticed the close connection between body, mind and spirit. Physical and emotional trauma often manifests itself as a health condition or chronic disease many years later. Just addressing the physical symptoms is often not working and a holistic approach looking at patient’s life, health, relationships and environmental history is very important to find the root cause and to offer a comprehensive, holistic and individual treatment plan.

My own journey to Functional Medicine.

My own health journey started as being diagnosed with a neurological autoimmune disease, requiring four-weekly infusions for ten years; together with the prognosis that one day the therapy most likely will not work resulting in disabling paralyses and pain. I was interested and keen to learn more about an involving new specialty of FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE and its promising results and research evidence being able to successfully diagnose and treat different conditions and chronic health issues in a holistic way.

My new knowledge and expertise have given me evidence-based tools to establish root cause and an individualised treatment program for each of my patients and for myself. A holistic treatment program allowed me after six months to stop infusion treatments and two years later I am still symptom and pain free. I am healthier, fitter and enjoying life more than ten years ago.
