Wellness Consultations 


These consults are designed to uncover the ‘drivers’ of your ill health, identify your individual risk factors and have you feeling better than you’ve felt in years. Whether it be chronic pain, blood sugar problems, fatigue, allergies, immune dysfunction, thyroid or menstrual problems;  a series of Well Being Consultations (usually 3 or 4 appointments) will have you well on the way to enjoying a better quality of life.

All consultations can take place in the clinic or online via Skype, phone or Zoom.


Acute Care Consultations 



For when you want a targeted solution at an economic price…

Short and sweet, these consults aim to address a set of acute symptoms without going into your life history. This means that you receive a professional prescription, comprehensive management of your condition and quicker recovery times.


If you’re wanting to avoid antibiotics, paracetomol and your symptoms are lingering or worsening then book an Acute Care Consult next time you or family members are unwell. Common presenting conditions include cold/flu, tummy bugs, urinary tract infections, childhood illnesses, injuries, pre & post surgery plans and amalgam filling removal protocols.





 A Sensible Alternative





Individualised Detoxification



If you suffer fatigue, hormonal issues, gut discomfort or skin problems you will benefit from one of my detox programs.

For maximum effectiveness, a detox program should be tailored and specific to the different toxins being targeted. An individualised detoxification program will usually run for 2-6 weeks, depending on the person, their history and types of toxin exposures and symptom severity. Furthermore, a combination of factors such as toxin exposure, genetic susceptibility and nutritional status determines your ‘vulnerability’ to toxin accumulation.

Following weight loss a comprehensive detox program is recommended as fat loss results in the release of toxins. This has the desired effect of helping to prevent weight loss slowing (plateauing).


Many occupations commonly bring us into contact with pesticides, solvents, heavy metals and chemicals.
These exposures occur across many professsions, trades and industries; particularly in rural and farming communities. Specific targets of detoxification are the gut, liver, heavy metal and chemical burdens.

Relieve yourself of your toxic burden and feel the difference!







Healthy Ageing 

 

 

Matching you with a diet and lifestyle prescription that is designed for you, the individual.

This program is tailored to meet your needs and designed to identify your individual health risks.

Through exploring genetics, lifestyle risk factors, current and/or past occupational exposures, family and personal history, hormonal profile and nutritional status, the Healthy Ageing Program involves identifying your potential risk factors. 

Once identified, underlying causes of poor health are addressed through diet, lifestyle, nutritional repletion and herbal therapeutics. 


A treatment strategy is then developed, determined by the most most appropriate and effective strategy for each individual condition. I will then provide you with the most appropriate dietary, lifestyle and nutritional interventions that are specific to your needs and Healthy Ageing. This approach ensures you remain energetic, vital and productive well into your ‘third age’.



Offering you a blueprint for vitality and longevity.

Functional Medicine



Functional Medicine describes a branch of healthcare that essentially uses dietary and lifestyle strategies to move you from illness to good health.

It is a shift away from the common disease-centred focus of medicine to a patient-centred approach. Functional Medicine addresses you as a whole, not just a set of symptoms.

Often drawing on 'simple' yet profound tools like food, daily activities, stress management and sleep hygiene; the addition of a Functional Medicine approach to your healthcare means that you'll get a unique prescription relevant only to you and more importantly, you'll get the results you are looking for.

In my opinion FM represents the next evolution in medical practice and better addresses the healthcare needs of today's patients. Functional medicine targets the underlying causes of disease, using a unique approach that engages both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.  

Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking for the interactions between genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality in each individual.




Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach


Health Coaching is a process that empowers you to make lasting healthy behaviour change. It helps you to bridge the gap between where you are currently at to where you want to get to. 

A series of sessions are designed to establish your health goals then go about achieving them in a specific, realistic and most importantly, attainable way.

Health Coaching sessions can be done in clinic, on the phone or in virtual meeting rooms like Zoom or Skype. You can consult with me as a Naturopath, Health Coach or both! Contact me here to find out more.

Here is where I did my training. The FMCA is affiliated with the Institute for Functional Medicine who has some of the most pioneering, forward thinking health specialists on it's staff.


Functional Pathology 

 

 
In conjunction with specialist laboratories, saliva, urine, stool and blood is used to investigate biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal conditions. 

Test kits come with easy to follow instructions, with many designed to be carried out in the privacy of your home.
If blood collection is required this can be done through your local collection centre.

These tests can also be utilised to better understand the cause of your health issues and aid an effective and efficient treatment plan. Functional testing can also be utilised to monitor treatment progress and efficacy.





Food Sensitivity Testing

   

Achieve a better quality of life!


Unlike IgE driven allergic reactions that are immediate and thus easily identified, IgG driven food reactions can take hours or days to appear, making them difficult to identify

IgG food sensitivity reactions are the most common type of reaction in both adults and children. Often reversible, they can involve multiple foods. They form immune complexes that travel via the blood stream with symptoms affecting various tissues, organs and body systems.


A simple in-clinic test is used to screen blood for antibodies to a panel of foods. There is no waiting for results as they are available immediately. The most common reactions occur to cow’s milk, eggs, beans, nuts and cereals.






How I work

 

When  sitting with my patients, I am considering more than the presenting symptom. I consider the complex interplay of biochemistry, genetics, family history, individual susceptibility, lifestyle and environmental factors. Without doing so it is difficult to achieve profound and lasting results.



As a standalone medical treatment, the adoption of a Naturopathic approach can be used to identify, target and rectify the causes of many health issues.



No two individuals are alike and so their treatment plans must be unique. The natural intelligence in each body, if given the right conditions, can regulate and optimise health.


This is where both the art and science come into it. Using an evidence based approach (where the evidence exists) alongside medical science, combined with traditional knowledge of the healing arts, my job is to help you identify the optimal conditions for your body so that you can enjoy better health and quality of life! No two prescriptions are ever alike.

I am not alternative; I am complementary. My model of healthcare, when combined with pharmaceutical medications, can greatly improve response to treatment, minimise side effects and enhance quality of life.
