Dr Christa Richter | Holistic Medical Doctor

I trained as a Medical Doctor at the University of Pretoria and finished my MBChB degree in 2003.

Loving to travel, I grabbed the opportunity to work as a family physician, registrar, and ER doctor in different places: from all over South Africa to a few Guinness-drinking table-dancing Irish villages.

The grand idea of optimizing health as a way of treating disease triggered my interest in lifestyle medicine, which I define as a return to the science of wellbeing. I took up further distance studies with the University of Functional Medicine based in the US, as well as some conferences with the Institute of Functional Medicine. I love applying these principles to treat each individual patient as a case study; and each illness as a partnered journey to a better outcome.

My interest lies in chronic disease, weight issues, hormonal & thyroid problems, and all sorts. I like to help patients who have vague complaints, those who prefer a more natural approach, and those who feel like just giving up. My hope is that young healthy people will become aware of the unlimited power of preventative medicine.

At clinics like ours, we can design a tailor - made plan to prevent disease, instead of waiting until people are older to treat illness, when it may be much more difficult to do so. I am deeply happy to be part of this holistic team.
