Dr Mark Draper
BSc, MBBS, DA, DRCOG, MFHOM, DINM
After completing a Zoology degree in 1974, Dr Draper qualified in medicine in 1979 from Guy’s Hospital London and for 13 years worked with the health service in hospitals and general practice. For the next 15 years of his medical career he was in complementary private medical practice in Malvern, latterly developing an interest and passion for nutritional medicine.
Dr Draper joined forces with Cytoplan as a medical Advisor in 1998 and left in 2006, returning to General Practice in the Isle of Man. During this time with Cytoplan, Dr Draper’s knowledge of nutritional medicine grew exponentially and he was able to see first-hand the philosophy of the company and the way it shaped products bringing significant benefit to people by improvement in their health and well-being.
Working again in General Practice, Dr Draper has been able to explore the use of nutritional intervention and products in an integrated approach, alongside the mainstream pharmaceutical medicines. He has an active private practice with plans to return to the UK in the near future to become again actively involved in post-graduate nutritional medicine training.
These experiences have strengthened his belief that the ‘Bridging the Nutrition Gap’ approach to correct hidden hunger (type B malnutrition) could be the basis of improved health for the whole family. It impacts on modifying risk or helping to prevent acute recurrent illnesses and chronic degenerative diseases, by focusing attention on correcting the deficiencies due to the changes in lifestyle, diet, and the micronutrients in the food chain.
Dr Draper has been a close ally and friend of Cytoplan over the past 17 years, and strongly believes that an integrated approach to human health, that encompasses the best of pharmaceutical and nutritional advances, will make a significant difference to any individual’s well-being or illness.
