Protea Centre - Preventative Health Care
Dr. Anna Da Silva was born and educated in South Africa and has been practicing Family Medicine in Canada for 20 years. She has always had an interest in rheumatology (the study of joints, muscle and auto-immune conditions), metabolic disorders, obesity and the study of nutraceuticals (vitamins & mineral supplements) and their role in promoting overall health especially in patients with chronic mental and physical disorders.
Integrative medicine combines the practice of conventional modern medicine with the study of wellness and health rather than only focusing on disease . It emphasizes and reaffirms the importance of the physician - patient relationship in the healing process and focuses on the whole person. The physician not only uses conventional medical techniques but also other aspects of evidence based non conventional medicine such as herbs or supplements to achieve optimal health.
