Julia believes strongly in integrated medicine, the power of traditional medicine coupled with alternative treatments such as acupuncture, hypnotherapy, massage, physiotherapy and reiki. Julia has a Diploma in Accupuncture and is recognised by most insurers for Acupunccture treatment. She also practises Hypnotherapy and self Hypnotherapy.

Julia is also leading the way with Functional Medicine, which is an understanding of the biochemistry of the body, and orthomolecular medicine which combines an understanding of the body’s biochemistry with extremely high doses of vitamin treatment. In particular she has a strong understanding of the orthomolecular treatment of schizophrenia, following the work of Abram Hoffer and maintaining the excellence of this wonderful treatment since his death earlier this year (March 2009) at the age of 91. Abram Hoffer was the father of functional and nutritional medicine and spent his whole life developing this subject at times in the face of great adversity. His dedication and prowess in the field of Orthomolecular Medicine, together with his work with Linus Pauling, (Double Noble Peace Prize Winner) has set the stage for much of Dr Piper’s current work.
