Dr Olivia Lesslar

I am now available for consulting from Gold Coast Hyperthermia clinic at Pacific Private Hospital Southport from 15th June onwards.

I will also be offering adjunctive IV nutrients, photodynamic therapy and whole body hyperthermia therapy.

I will listen to you and try my best to appreciate your health journey and help get you where you want to be. A good therapeutic relationship involves sharing hopes and fears, being realistic and defining and managing expectations. Generally speaking there are no magic pills and quick fixes. What effects real change is mindset, lifestyle and diet modification, judicious use of supplements and medication, and being kind to yourself. Take ownership and understand YOUR health, your body and the pressures you are subjected to.

I approach health from a realistic, whole-body perspective where the patient is a partner in their journey, with as much help and guidance from me as you are comfortable with. My assessments are rigorous, research-dense and fully referenced.

I Practice all aspects of medicine, with an interest in bio-hacking and individualised medicine. That said, because of time constraints and the depth to which I delve with my patients, I cannot practice as your primary care physician/ act in the role of GP. I will consult with you on the premise that you have a GP who is happy to collaborate.

My interests include:
pregnancy and early childhood optimisation
atopy: asthma/ hayfever/ eczema
gut, skin, vaginal microbiome
neurodegenerative diseases
complex chronic conditions like CFS/ME

patients who have lost hope and are tired of adding yet more medications to control symptoms and who would lole to explore treating to cause

Current career appointments:
