Dr Greg Emerson has a unique perspective on health and adaptation to our ever changing world. On one hand he is a senior emergency medicine specialist, a diving medicine physician and an internationally renowned consultant in integrative medicine. On the other hand he is a passionate permaculture farmer living a sustainable lifestyle and a wilderness survival enthusiast. He lives and works at the exciting crossroads where scientific evidence and evolutionary knowledge merge.
A long personal battle with illness led him on a profound exploration of healing processes and the prevention of illness. He reappraised both his medical focus and the way he approached health care delivery.
He is an active member of ILADS, the Wilderness Medical Society and the International Association of Ozone in Healthcare and a Fellow of both the Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine and the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine.
He is one of the founding members of the Australian Chronic Infectious Disease Society- a group of physicians who specialise in the treatment of chronic stealth infections including mycoplasma pneumoniae, Lyme disease and its co-infections, parasites and mould. He is an active member of the New Zealand Soil and Health Association working to address the problems caused by industrial agriculture, pesticides and genetic engineering.
He has trained in wilderness survival and traditional foods with both Australian Special Forces (SAS) personnel and the Apache in Arizona and he now teaches wilderness survival skills, energy biohacking techniques, resilience training, wild food foraging and traditional food preparation skills in the mountains and lakes around Queenstown and Wanaka in the South Island of New Zealand.
He is passionate about sustainability, self-sufficiency, neo-aboriginal life ways, wilderness survival and wild food foraging.
He believes in the intrinsic ability of the body to heal itself if the underlying cause of the illness is addressed. His practice revolves around identifying the sub-clinical defects common to all degenerative diseases.
He is a proud father hoping to leave the world a better place for his children by being a part of the revolution aiming to lead the human race onto a brighter, more optimistic, more sustainable future.
