Our Philosophy

In a world of medical specialists, we believe your health requires an holistic approach addressing multiple aspects of patient wellness including nutrition, regular exercise, relaxation, and healing of painful, unresolved emotions among many others.

Compass Lifestyle Clinics provides comprehensive advice in an environment where doctors and allied health professionals such as psychologists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and physiotherapists can work together to help patients achieve optimum health and function to the best of their ability.
As part of holistic health, we are supportive of medicinal cannabis, and our goal is to integrate this important therapeutic agent into modern medicine to be used together with other modalities of healing.

Cannabis should be used judiciously and responsibly in a proper clinical setting so possible side effects can be minimised and therapeutic outcomes optimised.

We put patients first. As every patient is unique, they also require different modalities of healing to ensure they are treated for their individual needs. Patients deserve to be guided by an empathetic and knowledgeable doctor.

Providing high standards of care and guiding patients on their road to better health is our ultimate goal.

We're here to help

We’ve seen first hand the process a patient must go through to pursue cannabis as a viable treatment plan. We work with doctors and Licensed Producers so that you can access the cannabis you need.

MEET THE TEAM

Dr Teresa Towpik

Chief Medical Officer

Dr Towpik has been a General Practitioner in Australia since 1993 and an advocate of medicinal cannabis since the law was amended and cannabis was legalised for medicinal use. Since then she has been studying the therapeutic properties of cannabis, how it works in the human body and the potential applications in General Practice, especially in the management of chronic debilitating pain.

In 2016, Dr Towpik founded MediHuanna, an organisation that provides science-based medicinal cannabis education for Health Professionals. Dr Towpik sees cannabis as a therapeutic agent that has huge potential in General Practice. Her goal is to change the stigma of cannabis through education, enabling it to be seen as an important medicine that should be integrated into modern medicine.

An innovator in physician education, he focuses on the therapeutic properties of cannabis and its applications as a medicine. He co-founded MediHuanna, an organisation that provides science-based medicinal cannabis education for Health Professionals. Cannabis is not just one plant medicine but hundreds of medicines in one plant, it is not a panacea for every illness but rather a medicine that needs to be integrated into modern medicine. In response to a need for training, he has developed an educational platform with Dr Towpik and the MediHuanna team that provides physicians with the necessary skills to safely prescribe cannabis in a clinical setting.
