Whilst studying Human Biology at King’s College, Marliese became interested in natural medicine. The QEST Scholarship enabled her to study Homeopathic Medicine full time, in London, and this was followed by a postgraduate course in advanced homeopathy for two years.
Marliese also qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic, and is the first Chiropractor in the 175 year history of the Faculty of Homeopathy to be awarded the MFHom(Chiro). Her passion for health and well-being continued into a variety of different areas, and in 1996 she became one of the first English women to complete the ultra-marathon, Marathon des Sables, a 250km self-sufficient foot race across the Sahara Desert.
Dr Hahnemann, the luminary who developed homeopathy, has been an enduring inspiration. This gentle yet effective system of medicine remains one of the world’s most widely practiced medical systems with around 200 million regular users. It is as relevant today as it ever was; indeed, perhaps more so, as people seek a more natural approach to health and well-being, free from unwanted side-effects.
Marliese now works in a Health Clinic in Dorset, for the NHS; and helps to deliver clinics in developing countries using chiropractic and homeopathy.
