Dr Charles Wildervanck is a medical doctor with many years of experience in the hospital services (including management), private medicine and as practitioner of Integrative Medicine.
In 1998 a profound experience in his family life led him to search for solutions outside the scope of regular medicine, becoming more and more aware of its limitations.
Further exploring of the principles of holism, as well as of pro-health methods in medicine, quickly lead to Charles’ conviction that a holistic, integral approach is the way forward in medicine.
In 2000 Charles and his wife Jean established Integrative Health in Port Elizabeth, RSA.
There is a strong interface in their work:
In dealing with chronic, life-changing (sometimes life-threatening) diseases Charles became more and more aware of the importance of the mind-body-spirit aspects and the role they play in the “soul journey”.
Jean is a facilitator with a Master’s degree in Mental Health, based on systems (integral) thinking.
Charles and Jean often team up to facilitate wellness at physical, emotional and mental level; see also Future Link Now.
Charles is also an artist and musician. He and Jean have three sons.
