ABOUT DR MARNA TURNER

​As a young child Dr Turner was bitten by a tick, but never treated correctly. This led to a long path of misdiagnosis and lots of doctors and tests. She was very sick for very long until she eventually found a doctor who looked for these ignored and forgotten bugs.

After 3 years of intensive treatment she got well, and her passion started. She went to study medicine and graduated from MEDUNSA in 2011. She worked in Worcester and did a lot of emergency centre work at various places. She got her DipPEC(SA) in 2015. During her time in Worcester and with her work in the various emergency rooms, she kept picking up patients who were likely to have these chronic tick-borne infections, but couldn’t get the right treatment. She continued working in the emergency rooms, but after an extensive period she got tired of emergency room politics and opened a small practice that focused on tick-borne infections, Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and other related diseases.

She pursued her passion and interest in this discipline but soon she realised that although patients got better on antibiotics, they did not heal fast enough.

She pursued her passion and interest in this discipline but soon realised that although patients got better on antibiotics, they did not heal fast enough and that there was a missing element. She started to do research, which lead her to other countries that were much more clued up with and familiar with tick-borne diseases. She made direct contact with specialists from Germany and Belgium, and in August 2019 she hosted her first conference in South Africa with international speakers addressing the subject of tick-borne diseases and tropical infections.

A follow-up practical workshop of the conference was a presentation that elaborated on the importance of building the immune system and the upkeep of a healthy intestine.

 

The product range introduced was Nutrined and Researched Nutritionals, a range of products that are specifically designed to build the immune system, decrease the viral and bacterial load and enhance the intestinal absorption. Dr Turner got the opportunity to import Nutrined and Researched Nutritionals’ products.

She saw the value in being able to offer her patients a more comprehensive and extensive treatment. She chose to work with Nutrined because she wanted quality products which she knew was underpinned by scientific research and where the product quality is not compromised. She could also understand the purpose for which the products were developed.

The products were scientifically researched, and she could explain to patients the pharmaceutical purpose and effect of the products.

The products were scientifically researched, and she could explain to patients the pharmaceutical purpose and effect of the products. The combinations of herbs also meant that patients could take fewer different types of medications.

Dr Turner established Turner Medical with the belief that the range of products, now available for her patients as well as medical practitioners, in due course, will help patients to recover and regain their health. Her dream is to establish a specialised clinic in the future.

Dr Turner believes that we all climb mountains but when we eventually reach the top the view is spectacular. She cares for her patients and working with and importing Nutrined products was a natural step in the road to enhancing the recovery of her and other patients with similar conditions.

She might not be able to change the world but as long as she can improve one life at a time, she has already changed that person’s world and that drives her passion.
