Whole person health

Food on prescription

Healthcare: The Future, looks at how evidence-based integrative medicine is shaping a whole person approach to good health.

There is so much we don’t know about conventional, and alternative healthcare, that is derived from nature. 

Many pharmaceutical drugs are synthetic versions of medicinal plants, and many therapies are made purely from plants.

Even in the 21st century the World Health Organization (WHO) endorses plants as treatments for serious conditions, and include 43 traditional medicine products in their national essential medicines list. 

These plants, herbs, and spices are used to treat a wide range of diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, sickle cell disease and tropical diseases like malaria.

Doctors, and complementary healthcare professionals give their valuable insights into treating chronic illness and autoimmune disease using many different integrative treatments.

Broadcast begins on 31st August and ends on 02 September 2022.

Hosted in Zanzibar, East Africa. 

The patient is at the centre of all healthcare and deserves the best treatment.

Integrative, whole person, optimum healthcare

Five medical doctors provide insight into why they prefer an integrative approach. 

  • A person’s health can be improved immensely by simple changes in the diet
  • Sick children can do well with natural interventions and good nursing
  • There is a superhighway between the gut and the brain and poor gut health can result in poor mental health
  • How do medical ethics affect an integrative approach, and what is it like for GPs and patients embracing a whole person approach?

Child, teen, and young adult mental health


02 September 2022

Dr Zenobia Storah (MA Oxon, Dip Psych, DClinPsy, CPsychol), UK

Senior clinical psychologist child and adolescent. Clinical Lead for NHS Knowsley Neurodevelopmental Pathway in Liverpool. Runs a busy private practice. Expert witness for the Family and Civil courts. Member of the Health Advisory and Recovery Team (HART). Active member of their Mental Health, Social Care and Education division. Adviser to media outlets, journalists, lawyers, politicians and lobby groups on Covid-19 measures and their effects on children.

Dr Storah's specialisms include children and young people with neurodevelopmental conditions, including autism spectrum disorders and, ADHD, as well as those with learning difficulties. She has extensive experience working with trauma and adopted children and children in care. In her private practice she works with young adults presenting with anxiety disorders, depression, self-harm, and relational difficulties.

The global pandemic response has resulted in a mental health crisis for many children and young people. The measures have exacerbated existing mental health problems and have created new challenges for our young. Dr Zenobia Storah will describe the nature of the trauma they have experienced over the past two and a half years, and which they are still processing. She will lead a session reflecting on the post-pandemic context in which they are attempting to make their recovery and discuss how family, and the systems around children and local and national levels, can work together. The aim is to create a psychologically healthy society in which children can rebuild their lives and thrive.

Sarah Waters, (1st Class BA (Hons) Couns, Dip PC Couns, DDP Level 1&2) UK Psychotherapist. Front Facing Member of the Health Advisory Recovery Team (HART). Steering Group Member of Therapists for Medical Freedom. Registered with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). UK

Sarah Waters is a psychotherapist experienced in working with the effects of abuse, neglect, and childhood trauma. She also specialises in Dyadic Developmental Practice, the family therapy and parenting model. She has written several papers about the adverse effects children and young people have experienced since 2020 and the lack of acknowledgement of this from the therapy and trauma informed community.

The pandemic measures over the past two years have affected billions of children worldwide. Rates of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicide attempts, self-harm and low mood have all increased at a time when mental health services for the young are overstretched or non-existent. However, all is not lost. Sarah will discuss how vital it is that the adults and systems around the young recognise the damage that has been done so they can effectively support children in processing the trauma. Young people need authentic, courageous adult role models to help them develop their self-confidence and regain the psychological safety they need. Equally, they need encouragement to recognise the power of their own spiritual nature to equip them to thrive and flourish in our rapidly changing world.

Dr Jayne Donegan (MBBS, DRCOG, DCH, DFFP, MRCGP, MFHom) UK

Homeopathic practitioner registered with the Homeopathic Medical Association and Homeopathy International. Naturopathic physician registered with the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners. Qualified in medicine at St Mary's Hospital Medical School, University of London.

Sarah Duff (BA Hons Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), Foundation degrees in Teaching and Learning Support. BSc Psychology Accreditations), England, UK

arah Duff has over 20 years’ experience teaching and mentoring in education, including mainstream schools, Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) schools; Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH) residential schools; Further Education and online tuition. Alongside her BA Hons with QTS in Primary Education and Child Development and Learning, Sarah has a foundation degree in Teaching and Learning Support, as well as BSC Psychology accreditations. Mother to two grown individuals and Outreach tutor.

She has many additional certifications that include yoga, meditation, counselling and mental health awareness, better play and nurture work. She has utilised many other intervention programmes such as the Alternative Learning System (ALS), Education, Learning and Skills (ELS), Every Child A Reader (ECAR), speech and language, physiotherapy, phonics, and White Rose Maths, that support and foster learning potential. Sarah has Emotional and Performance Coaching certifications and is an acclaimed Author. She is currently writing her third book, ‘The Onion: Stripping the Layers’.

Sarah is not a conventional teacher. Her lessons go against the grain of sitting at a desk with a sheet of white paper and a pencil. She finds that the best way to engage children is through experiential and practical learning with hands on activities. In short, she has found a way to reach the most closed down of children through inspiring activities and play. She also has a passion for an all-inclusive, free from dogma, educational curriculum. Her dream system includes a balanced input of cognitive and emotional learning.

She will discuss how to help young people rebuild trust in the systems and people around them. Suggest ways to help them feel safe again and suggest practical ways to help combat poor concentration, poor behaviour, raise their focus and learning standards.

He is a member of Pandata, the organisation analysing the costs of the pandemic response, and Collateral Global. He has been speaking out against destructive pandemic policies pursued by governments via presentations and publications since May 2020.
Hugh will outline the educational and developmental damage to children caused by the pandemic measures and give a teacher’s perspective of life in school during the last two years. He will discuss whether the restrictions were necessary and whether the official data supports the use of mask wearing, lockdowns and quarantines. The presentation is designed to facilitate a debate as to whether the benefits of the measures outweighed the harms. In the final section, he will discuss possible mitigations and what alternatives to the current arrangements might look like, and what parents can do to support their children if faced with the same situation again.
