I work as a Naturopath with a special interest in stress, and its relation to digestive and skin issues by helping lower the stress response, improve digestion, skin, and quality of life.
I believe that we have been provided with all that we need in nature to heal. That each person has different physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, and social factors contributing to their health, and its best to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I believe in educating my clients on responsibility of their own health, and how important prevention is to avoid disease.
Based on a wholistic approach, I use a range of assessments including iridology, body signs, blood pressure, nutrient deficiency testing, tongue and nail analysis. Sometimes further testing may be suggested if absolutely necessary, like hormone levels, allergies, or heavy metals for example, and these can be blood, hair, or saliva tests.
Treatment methods are non-invasive using nutrition, herbal medicine, counselling, life-coaching, and lifestyle suggestions.
My personal goal as a Naturopath is to know that I have helped many achieve their health goals. I love seeing improvement in clients with chronic problems like Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), eczema and dermatitis, and improvements from providing individualised cancer support. I like knowing that I have made a real difference in the world by improving quality of life. Ultimately, that everyone I have helped maintains their own health in the long term. The less I see my clients, the more successful I am as a Naturopath!
