Stronger Medicine is an ongoing exploration of what goes toward a life characterised by independence, autonomy, strength, and staying out of hospital for as long as possible. This is my passion project. Nothing for sale. I’d love for you to join in on the Stronger Medicine project.
Hi, I’m Julian.
I work as a doctor in the NHS, currently aiming for speciality training and a career in Emergency Medicine.
Whilst I work in the most acute part of the hospital environment, my goal and hope for this website is to do my best to keep us out of hospital.
Amongst other health mishaps I’ve encountered through life, I’m also a type 1 diabetic. Although my insulin medication is what keeps me alive, I really strongly believe that my efforts to do the basics consistently are what allow me to thrive (even if I’m never 100% consistent); trying to eat well, manage fatigue, physically train, and so on.
In fact, I strongly believe that, apart from medical emergencies, what we can do for ourselves is very often more powerful than any medicine. And can also delay the onset of any medical emergency until way down the line. Thankfully the evidence supporting my belief in this continues to build and build.
Before medicine, I studied Chinese language for four years at University, also working and studying in China for more than 2 years in total.
