Dr Murray

Dr Leah Murray has had an interest in Integrative Medicine as early on as during her medical school training at Stellenbosch University. She completed an elective in Integrative Medicine in her 4th year with the founder of Integrative Medicine in South Africa, Dr Bernard Brom.

After completing her MBChB, and a rural community service in the Northern Cape, she spent a year abroad, mostly in India, where she deepened her understanding and intrigue in Eastern philosophies, Yoga and the body-mind-spirit connection.

Her other passion is Emergency Medicine in which she spent 6 years working in state and private hospitals in South Africa, as well as the UK.
During this time she completed various post-graduate courses in Integrative Medicine, one through Stellenbosch University and another by Dr Bernard Brom.

She believes in finding long term solutions to health.

Dr Whiteman

Since graduating from the University of Cape Town, Nicky has practiced at various medical institutions in and around Cape Town, including the New Somerset Hospital, Mowbray Maternity Hospital, the Red Cross Children’s War Memorial Hospital, as well as a community health care centre. During this time she was exposed to a wide variety of medical specialities and conditions. Paediatrics is her passion and as such, she has completed a Diploma in Child Healthcare. Nicky also has an interest in women’s health, HIV medicine and travel medicine. She has completed her HIV Diploma and Travel Medicine Certificate.
