Qualified in Sport Science (Wollongong University 1990) and Naturopathy (Nature Care College Sydney 1997), he will be familiar to many through articles, lectures, representations for and presentations to professional groups, bodies and general public alike.
Darren has trained extensively since 2006 in the Biomedical approach to Autism Spectrum Disorders (MINDD Sydney) and is a MAPS practitioner (US Medical Academy of Paediatric Special Needs); with further specialist training in Genetic Profiling (Fitgenes Certified), Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Electro-medicine (Including PEMF and RIFE therapy), Live Blood Analysis, Mineral Analysis via Spectrophotometry (OligoScan), plus Urine and Saliva Analysis.
The deep insights garnered from putting the pieces of the ASD puzzle together also provides a distinct advantage when dealing with other complex chronic health issues including cancer, chronic fatigue, MS and Lyme disease.
Core Naturopathics Pty Ltd was established in 2011 with business partner and co-director Brett O’Brien ND MNHAA, as a vehicle to facilitate their vision for the future of natural health care in Australia.
Over the last 10 years, Core has developed and implemented a functional medicine approach for chronic disease care and offers clients the option of a unique three month ‘Better Health Management’ package. This concept is offered as a working model for preventative healthcare clinics and Core is purposefully working to see their vision realized and expanded.
As a remedy formulator, Darren has also had the experience of taking a therapeutic product through all facets of development (formulation, production, TGA regulation and marketing) to the international market.
