Meet our Integrative GPs committed to providing the best level of care that combines a medical and holistic approach to optimal health

Our doctors are expertly trained to know how to involve complementary and allied healthcare to optimise results for their patients.

Dr Oscar Serrallach MBChB, FRACGP
Dr Oscar Serrallach’s patients benefit from his diverse experience and thirst to remain at the cutting edge of wellness medicine. A thirst that led him down the path of studying and practicing functional medicine, whilst addressing the multi factorial aspects of health and well being.
He is a leader in the field of postnatal health and it was through the experience of his own family and the lens of functional medicine that he came to realise the huge impact that nutrition, lifestyle and the environment have on the postnatal period. Oscar has spent the past eight years devoted to the identification and treatment of Postnatal Depletion, which he suspects up to 50% of mothers suffer, to some degree.

Dr Oscar is bringing his knowledge and expertise on Postnatal Depletion and 4th trimester healing to the world with the launch and tour for his new book The Post Natal Depletion Cure in June 2018. Working exclusively with the team at The Health Lodge, Dr Oscar will continue to practice and offer his experience, helping people through Postnatal Depletion.
Oscar has devised a care strategy with our Naturopaths to ensure effective and ongoing care for his current and new patients. Contact us on 02 6685 6445 to enquire about a consultation.
