Introducing Dr. Frank Scott
Dr Frank Scott studied Clinical Pathology, qualified, and specialised in Medical Microbiology at Tygerberg Hospital in the Western Cape. After a lengthy period of working in pathology and assisting in research, he became disillusioned with allopathic medicine which only treated the symptom and not the cause of illness. He decided to further his studies in naturopathic medicine, which treats the cause of illness; not the symptom, and qualified as a Naturopath in 2002. At the same time he studied Iridology through the Felke Institute of Germany and passed the International Masters Examination also in 2002. In 2004 Dr. Scott was allowed to write the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa’s board examination (theory and practical) which he passed and was officially registered as a Naturopath and allowed to get a practice number which is necessary in order for patients to be reimbursed from their medical aid schemes.
His knowledge and passion for clinical medicine, pathology, natural medicine, homeopathy and iridology enable him to administer treatment for all acute and chronic illnesses As he is a registered professional, he is allowed to administer certificates for sick leave to patients.
