If you need a referral or an answer to an uncomfortable question, having a familiar face behind the stethoscope can significantly improve the quality of your care.
Research shows that primary care (a visit to your family doctor, a consultation with a nurse, advice from a pharmacist) is still the strongest foundation of good health care - and your relationship with your family doctor is a key element of that foundation.

After completing a five-year undergraduate course in Chinese medicine and biomedical science, I joined a Chinese medicine center. In addition to everyday illnesses, I also treated many cancer patients. I used palliative and complementary treatments for side effects and worked in the field of long-term damage prevention. This work inspired me to delve deeper into the field of acupuncture for cancer patients. I wrote an article on this topic for my Master's degree in Chinese Medicine, titled Acupuncture for Complementary Therapy and Cancer Prevention. I hoped to be able to work in the research field, and I took up a position as a research fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Hong Kong. I participated in a controlled trial of acupuncture treatment for insomnia in patients with depression. But even more than theoretical scientific research, I was interested in practical work. So in 2012 I started an internship with a local doctor, a specialist in Yijing/I Ching healing.
In my many years of practice, I have mostly dealt with allergies, migraine, eczema, rhinitis, insomnia, menstrual problems, pregnancy nausea, high blood pressure, gout, pain management, post-stroke care and geriatric conditions. I successfully use a variety of methods and tools in my treatment, such as herbal powders, herbs, acupuncture, moxibustion.
In the winter of 2015, I had the opportunity to start a new chapter in my life in Slovenia. For the first time in my life, I lived in a country where the cold winter snow whitens the landscape; yet I have always been touched and warmed by the warm hearts of the people of Slovenia. It is an honour and a pleasure to be able to help Slovenian patients.

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art of inserting very thin needles into points on the body to activate qi energy. The flow of qi energy can be obstructed by several factors, e.g. emotions, poor diet, too much work, trauma or stress. Acupuncture restores the natural flow of qi energy and brings the body back into overall balance.
Chinese herbal medicine is one of the largest herbal systems in the world with an unbroken tradition dating back to the 3rd century BC.
Herbs consist of leaves, stems, bark, roots or seeds. Each is characterised by its unique effect. When combined in an effective way, they perform a variety of tasks and help the body to regain its overall balance.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, traditionally "healthy" food is very different from the modern recommendations you might see on TV or in magazines. According to Chinese medicine a healthy diet is based on energetic principles and promotes a balance of the body that cleanses itself of toxins, resulting in a well-functioning body that is energised and healthy.
