A HOLISTIC APPROACH

Gar is a specialist practitioner in Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA).  HTMA is arguably the most useful forensic tool for:

  • Identifying the root causes of ill-health, injuries that fail to heal correctly and poor performance;

  • Determining a person's nutrient status;

  • Identifying any exposures to toxic elements such as mercury, lead and arsenic;

  • Guiding nutrition and lifestyle-based therapies.

With the assistance of his partner in life, Alofa Kosena, Gary runs a small, private clinic in Wellington and is available for consultations either in person or online, and will also give lectures upon request.​

Gary's academic training through the University of Otago and Medical School is in the following fields:

  • Sports Medicine (post-graduate diploma - allied medical).

  • Physical Education (exercise physiology, biomechanics, coaching theory).

  • Rehabilitation (post-graduate diploma - allied medical).

 

In addition, he has numerous industry qualifications in human nutrition and the practice of using nutrition as medicine.  

Gary is more than walking the talk.  He is the current UCI Masters (65-70 years) Mountain Biking Cross-country World Champion.
