B Soc Sci (Hons) UCT, Dip Natural Medicine (UK) is a Natural Health and SCIO (Scientific Consciousness Interface Operations System) Biofeedback Practitioner. Maud is passionate about functional medicine and has spent the last 12 years studying and researching the impact of food and lifestyle choices on individuals health.
Maud started her career in new business development working for Richard Branson at Virgin Management (UK). She then returned to S.A. to start a family. It was during this time of raising her 3 children that she began looking at functional medicine as an alternative to traditional medicine in maintaining her families optimum health and wellbeing.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease. Using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership it is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centred focus of medical practice to a more patient-centred approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
The SCIO (Scientific Consciousness Interface Operations System) is a universal electrophysiological biofeedback system. It coordinates a complex electro-modal, biofeedback program with computer software in order to gather bioenergetic information of a client’s subconscious. The information is gathered from the body through electrodes in head straps providing an accurate and precise picture of the clients general status. This information is selected and listed by the SCIO in order of the highest reaction and the stressors are analysed in the course of a stress management session. These combine to form a universal electrophysiological biofeedback system for the detection of stress and reduction of stress, and the treatment of muscular re-education from injury, muscle weakness or dystonia, pain (TENS [transcutaneous electro nerval stimulation]), trauma/wound healing, charge stability imbalance, redox potential and electrophysiological reactivity.
