As Founder and Director of 'Life Clinic Hirudotherapy & Healing Pty Ltd Australia and President of International Leech Therapy Institute of Associates c/o LCHH, NSW, Australia, it's my pleasure to welcome you to Life Clinic Hirudotherapy & Healing.

I refer to areas of my profession as 'Tools for Life' and Leech Therapy is an amazing 'Tool' available to all of us as a natural gift of nature. With over 40 years of experience treating numerous health ailments, I recognise the importance of making myself available to overseas patients who are unable to visit my clinics for leech therapy treatment due to their threatening health situations. I feel privileged to have helped many people in difficult situations, including saving diabetic patients who face amputation. My ability to visit overseas patients has been due to the quick response and dedication of my staff, who coordinate my working schedule.

The most frequent ailments I treat with medicinal leech therapy are listed on this website. Other ailments not currently listed include Strokes, symptoms of Parkinson's disease, Prostate issues, RSI and sleeping disorders.

I'm passionate about sharing my knowledge of Medicinal Leech Therapy and provide education through my Leech Therapy Courses, which includes information of Health Benefits that can impact people's lives as discussed throughout my website and blog and many media interviews.

I'm committed to my Vision of introducing and teaching people around the world about all areas of Medicinal Leech Therapy and the many health benefits.

I hope the information provided in my website gives you a greater understanding of these amazing creatures.  Please don't hesitate to email my staff at Head Office, who are only too happy to answer any questions you may have.

I'm aware many people are fearful of leeches for a variety of reasons.  Some, because they have experienced leeches attaching themselves to their feet and legs without permission whilst walking through small streams and rivers and others who have heard stories about slimy worm-like creatures!  Either way, it's only through understanding the background and health benefits that leeches provide, that we can truly appreciate the amazing assistance they can offer our health.

Let's first ask ourselves 'how much do we know about our bodies?'  After all, we don't know what's going to happen to us in the next ten minutes, ten weeks or ten years!  We live day by day enjoying life and all that's involved, whether it's coping with work pressures, relationships, family life, taking time out on holiday, enjoying financial gain as well as facing debt......or anything else you can think of, it's pretty straightforward - most of us lead busy lives and simply take our bodies for granted.

No, this isn't about selling life or health insurance!  This is about asking ourselves how much thought do we give in understanding what's naturally available to help us enjoy a healthy and long life.

Unfortunately, most of us are aware of someone who has suffered a stroke or heart attack and it would be easy to presume these problems only occur in the later part of people's lives, but sadly that's not always the case.  Cardiovascular and vascular disease for instance, is the number one cause of death in many countries and we are all aware that good diet and exercise helps reduce this risk and of course there are people like myself that have a high risk passed down through family genes, but not many people are aware that leech therapy is also a natural way of 'preventative' treatment.

Like many people, I had absolutely no idea I had cardiovascular disease, let alone an 'advanced' stage of the disease, which would normally be observed in someone at least 20 years older than myself!  Without doubt, I was incredibly fortunate surviving four heart attacks in one day before surgeons found many of my arteries had serious narrowings or complete occlusion.

Through my years of experience in leech therapy and as a specialist in this area, I achieved incredible results using Leech Therapy to treat my carotid arteries, left subclavian artery and general well-being.  I believe it's important we give our blood a 'cleanse' as leeches have been used for this type of natural treatment for thousands of years.

I have provided photos of blood expressed from leeches from various treatments throughout my website.  The lighter red, clear blood is healthy, whereas the thick dark blood indicates a problem, usually showing 'bits and pieces' - colestral and clots.  Nothing in western medicine is known to dissolve plaque, as my interventional cardiologist stated in an article provided to the 'Sydney Morning Herald' [view press releases] but tests proved that after leech therapy, my blockages had been cleared.

Here at Life Clinic Hirudotherapy & Healing, we use experience known from the past to bring health and wellbeing to the future, using leech therapy.

Generally speaking, as long as we feel well, we don't always focus on our health or consider preventative treatment. With increased numbers of deaths caused by vascular and cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, Leech Therapy is the most natural treatment available and worth considering.

Leeches have been used in medicine for over 2,000 years and to fully understand why leech therapy works in such a wide range of applications, it's important to appreciate that the therapeutic activity of leech therapy is not based on a single mechanism of action, but on a combination of multiple effects. The leech is equipped with an extremely sensitive nervous system, which it uses to inspect the host and the host's blood.

Several hospitals throughout New Zealand, Australia and other countries use the recognised and extraordinary benefits of leeches in Plastic Surgery, Wound Healing and Microsurgery.
