Dr Gillies McDavid


Dr McDavid is a fully registered practitioner who has been in private practice for over 22 years. Dr McDavid utilises not only homeopathic remedies but incorporates Unani-Tibb Herbal medicine, Biopuncture (the use of Homeopathic injectable remedies), Nutraceutical and Naturopathic remedies in to day to day practice. All therapies are based on the “whole person” approach whereby the person’s constitution is analysed and taken into account. Dietary advice is also given based on these constitutional analyses.

Dr McDavid also incorporates the use of a Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) machine which allows the analysis of entire body systems via the measuring of electrical resistance levels through acupuncture points on the hands and feet. This allows Dr McDavid to determine imbalances in the body brought on by various causes including, but not limited to, chemical, hormonal, allergic, infectious or even toxic causes. The very sensitive and highly accurate analysis system allows for fastidious diagnosis and subsequent treatment protocols stemming from information gleaned from the MSA system. The MSA assessments are 90 mins long as they are very comprehensive and require in depth scrutiny of the entire body.

All homeopathic treatment protocols are safe and side effect free. Dr McDavid treats patients from young babies through to the elderly and everyone in between. Initial appointments are typically 60 mins long in order to take a comprehensive case history with physical examination where follow up appointments are approximately 30 mins.

Although not contracted into medical aid, patients do receive a prescription / invoice whereby these can be submitted to medical aid for refunds. All scripts are furnished with all relevant ICD 10 codes, procedure and NAPPI codes for medical aid and subsequent refund purposes.
