Dr. Kaime Hood (TCM)
BHthSc/ BAppSc Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture
GradCert Addiction studies
I have a specific interest in women's health / gynaecological conditions,
digestive disorders, chronic lingering pathogens- also known as 'Gu syndrome' in
Chinese medicine, immune dysfunction, inflammatory conditions, mental health,
PTSD, substance use and addiction support.
My qualifications include a double degree in Health Science and Applied Science
in Chinese Medicine from RMIT University, and a Post Graduate Certificate of
Addiction Studies from the University of Adelaide.
I treat from an integrated TCM framework, incorporating Traditional
Chinese Medicine with functional medicine principles while working closely with
doctors, naturopaths, osteopaths and other allied health practitioners.
I am very passionate about herbal medicine, I use both raw and
powdered Chinese herbal formulas in conjunction with supplementation
where necessary. I prescribe Chinese herbal medicine for most of my patients alongside
acupuncture sessions, this way we tend to get the desired results a lot faster.
My interest in addiction medicine has driven me to further pursue
studies in this field and incorporate this knowledge into my practice.
I am actively involved in the establishment of the not-for-profit organisation
NADA-Australia based on the acu-detox model in the USA, supporting people
managing drug and alcohol dependence or addiction, mental health complaints,
PTSD or acute traumatic events, and general stress disorders.
For further information about this please see the resources section or get in touch with me.
I look forward to seeing you in the clinic and helping you to achieve your health goals.
