About our Doctor


Hi and Welcome to the World Without Wine “Ask Dr Marinda” page!

I am a GP with a special interest in allergies. I completed a diploma in Allergology at the College of
Medicine of South Africa as well as a Certificate in Allergology at University of Southampton.

I am passionate about holistic patient care and the relationship between chemical and other external
substances and our bodies’ reaction to them. I also have an interest in alcohol addiction and related
health problems.

On the personal side I am the proud mom of two boys and keep fit by running.

I am delighted to be part of the World Without Wine team and hope to help many people to achieve a happier
and healthier lifestyle via this website.

Please send me your alcohol-related medical questions by filling in the form at the bottom of the page
– thank you.
