Dr Margo Livingston

Advanced Prescribing Nurse/Immunologist/Natural Medicine

Dr Margo Livingston is an Integrated Medical Consultant with a PhD in Immunology, a Masters in Advanced Nursing, experience in Public Health, Wellbeing & Mental Health Therapy. She has spent her life developing skills in traditional science, nursing, clinical research, alternative medicine/health, personal development, personal training, natural energetic healing (personal and environmental), teaching and lecturing, which has moulded her into a rare, multi-faceted specialist.

Her work enables her to help clients with physical and mental problems to be part of their own healing process, to opt to be treated using traditional "Western" methods or, to be shown how to heal themselves using "Eastern" methods (or, a combination of both) and begin to understand how their body and mind work in harmony to create optimal physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health, happiness and long-term wellbeing. This incorporates mind/body and environmental energetics, personal training and advice on nutrition, including Cannabidiol (CBD) to optimise weight and balance energy production for perfect health.

Dr Margo holds private health consultations to assess, review and diagnose illness, perform medical check ups, including routine blood analysis, urinalysis, blood pressure checks and COVID-19 testing. She has an excellent consultant referral network to guide you to the right specialist should further investigation be warranted.
