He has completed his advanced fellowship in anti-aging, functional and regenerative medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (FAARM). He is the only doctor in Africa to have attained these qualifications.

Dr Golding has completed a certification in chelation therapies with ACAM (American College for Advancements in Medicine) and is also a member of their organisation. He has completed a masters qualification in medical sciences with a concentration on metabolic and nutritional medicine with the university of south florida. He has also completed a 6 module fellowship program in integrative cancer treatments in the USA in August 2010. He has also completed a certification course in nutrigenomics (NUGO in Europe). This particular certification is a 4 module course on nutrigenomics, polymorphisms, proteomics and metabolomics.

Prior to completing his fellowship as a specialist physician, he was awarded the Akromed prize for the best student in Psychiatry, the Horrace Wells medal for the best student in Anaesthetics, and the Maybaker prize for the best progress in Pharmacology as an undergraduate student.

Dr Carel-Piet van Eeden

Ph.D. – Holistic Life Counseling

Carel-Piet van Eeden started his journey in integrative and energy medicine in 2001 through Shiatsu and Reiki.  He continued on to become an Independent Reiki Master and has been teaching this form of energy medicine since 2005.  Being the eternal student, he has been adding to his repertoire of modalities ever since.

This has culminated in qualifications and courses in, among others:

  • Core Regeneration
  • BodyTalk
  • Karuna Reiki
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming

Dr van Eeden completed his Ph.D and qualified in Holistic Life Counselling in December 2012 through the University of Sedona.  He is currently pursuing an MBAM through the same University.

After experiencing the trauma of cancer first-hand, Carel-Piet decided to leave his corporate position as legal business analyst and focus on the field of integrative medicine.  Together with Dr. Craige Golding, he works in the Golding Institute to provide evidence based integrative solutions and training for healthcare providers and patients alike.

As a practitioner, Dr. van Eeden focuses on a wide array of challenges people face.  Because of his diverse training, the challenges addressed in sessions are many and include:

  • Lifestyle management
  • Genetic testing
  • Emotional counseling
  • Mindfulness
  • Life Coaching

As an Integrative Coach, Carel-Piet has a passion for studying and accessing the brilliance of the mind and bringing that into everyday life with the people who come to see him for sessions.  Each session is seen as a journey into finding the best version of what a person can be, through whichever modality of grouping thereof.
