Naturopathy

Naturopathy is all about creating an internal balance, improving the elimination systems to release toxins from the body, strengthening body systems such as the immune system while incorporating strategies to reduce stress and support the nervous system.

I use a variation of supportive strategies such as nutritional assessment and dietary adjustments, practitioner range vitamin & mineral supplementation, detoxification programs, herbal remedies and lifestyle recommendations.

Naturopathic Treatment can help to Improve and Manage the following Conditions & Systems:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Diabetes
  • Cold & Flu
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Women’s Health Concerns
  • Reproductive Health
  • Pregnancy Support
  • Gut Health
  • Liver Function
  • Many many more!

As a registered practitioner with Healthscope Functional Pathology,  I’m able to refer clients for specific tests and investigations. Some tests may be useful in establishing imbalances, provide a tool for early intervention and management, establish baseline levels prior to treatment programs and monitor patient progress.

Hair mineral analysis can detect whether there is an excess or deficiency of vital minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc and iron.

Optimal Nutritional Evaluation is designed to evaluate an individual’s overall nutritional status and assess the functional need for vitamins and minerals.
