These sessions are all about uncovering the reasons you don't feel tiptop.
The goal is to have you feeling better than you have in years, resolving the symptoms that interfere with your day to day.
Here, we work together to discover the ‘triggers’ of your health concerns, explore your unique risk factors and determine what changes you can make to improve your health.

This used to be my section on detox, until my learning taught me better. I do not offer detox protocols anymore, the aim is to optimise your body's inherent capacity for healing. The system of Naturopathic healing rests on the principle that the body heals itself, given the right conditions. Just as grazes and cuts heal so can our deeper tissues heal.
The fundamental reason why our bodies struggle to maintain health is due to key nutrient deficiencies; largely due to chemical farming, food processing, chronic stress and misleading and dangerous dietary guidelines.
Using a combination of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis and specific bloods we can assess deficiencies and how they are impacting your bodies ability to "clean house" and maintain health.
It is worth noting that many occupations bring us into contact with pesticides, solvents, heavy metals and chemicals.
These exposures occur across many professions, trades and industries; particularly in rural and farming communities.

I have been seeing Rian for about 4 months and in this short amount of time I no longer catch every cold that is going around. My immune system is functioning better after being affected by typhus and malaria. I am also losing weight...my energy levels are back to when I was 10years younger....I can highly recommend Rian's expertise to anyone with an illness or needs to get back on track - to be their ultimate healthy self. I did not realise I could feel this well.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Why use Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis? (HTMA)
Minerals are the "spark plugs" of life, essential for:
structural support in bones & teeth
maintaining pH & water balance
correct nerve conduction
The Benefits of HTMA
Mineral concentrations in the hair indicate mineral stores in the body.
Hair analysis captures cumulative patterns of mineral usage over time.
HTMA reveals how well your body is coping with stress.

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.
How I work
During a consultation expect to go into the detail. Sure, it's not compulsory but the more I know about what influences your health the more likely we are to find the best solution. A Naturopathic treatment takes a whole person approach, yes, we can improve your symptoms whilst also addressing the underlying cause. During our sessions we will explore the complex interactions between biochemistry, genetics, family history, individual susceptibility, lifestyle, stress, emotional, spiritual and environmental factors. This is usually the best way to achieve profound and lasting results.
As a stand alone medical treatment, the 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 will be different. The natural healing power that we all have (for instance the healing of cuts) can be enhanced, if given the right conditions; and harnessed, to improve, regulate and optimise a range of health issues.
This is both the Art and Science of Naturopathy.
Using an evidence based approach (where the evidence exists) alongside health science, combined with traditional knowledge of healing practices, 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.
In conjunction with specialist laboratories, hair, 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.
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.
