Director of Wellness & Education
Dr Carel Bredell (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) has in his 35yrs of medical practice built up experience in Integrative Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, Herbal and Homotoxicology therapies, and some alternative methods such as the use of magnetic field and low intensity laser devices. He specifically enjoys functional medicine as it always focuses on finding the underlying ‘Why’ of a condition rather than just treating its symptoms.
Dr Bredell is a director at Canamere as well as a member of Canamere’s Scientific Board. As a cyclist and health activist, his focus is on educating people how to empower their bodies to optimise its own innate healing and sports performance capabilities in new and exciting ways.
As a result of his compassion with people who suffer, he made an observation that many of his patients that visited him for sick-care consultation could, in his opinion, have avoided landing up in front of him if they new how to address their lifestyle. He also came to believe that if patients were stronger and healthier when they contracted disease, that their ability to recover or maintain their health could have been exponentially improved.
Dr Bredell broke away from one-on-one sick-care to find new ways of reaching people to fulfill his vision, and in this process found and joined Canamere's leadership team after he realised what unique and powerful nutritional products were being brought to market by the scientific team.
