He has professional affiliations with the Department of Chemical Pathology for the purpose of studying the impact of various genetic risk factors and finding practical ways to use this information to improve quality of life. He has a special interest in Mental Health, Multiple Sclerosis and Breast Cancer. He has committed the last 7 years of his professional and personal life to study the spiritual and emotional roots of disease and to find ways to model the interconnections between biological, psychological and spiritual problems.
At his medical practice in Cape Town he provides offers consultations to people who are interested in addressing all aspects of their health - spiritually, psychologically and biologically. The materials posted on this website are the product of this experience gained over many years. They were developed specifically to assist Health Professionals to navigate the many challenges in providing truly wholesome help. Unless the spiritual, psychological and biological barriers to health and wholeness are addressed, the results are frequently unsuccessful, temporary and often very costly to maintain.
Dr Cronjé is not a clinical psychologist, psychiatrist nor an ordained pastor. He is God-fearing Believer who endeavours to follow a patient-centered, Biblical and scientific and approach in the professional services he provides.
