braid HEALTH

Dr Braid is an experienced Rehabilitation Medicine Doctor specialising in Gut-brain health.  

She is passionate about empowering people to take charge of their health and embrace a preventative model of care.

She works with people who want to feel and be healthy from the inside out.

Dr Braid is now practicing from the new Bloomfield Medical Centre.


My purpose is to educate and empower my patients to find individualised practical solutions that improve their quality of life.


Functional medicine is a science-based and patient-centred approach to healthcare that seeks to discover how and why illness occurs.

Instead of disease as the point of focus, Functional Medicine addresses the inter-connecting biochemical, genetic and lifestyle factors that underlie disease and dysfunction.

This approach delivers the ultimate in personalised health care with nutritional medicine and lifestyle modifications as core features.
This specialty has gained significant momentum in the United States and is set to revolutionise our current medical model of health care.
