here for you
No matter your age, gender or current health status, we will strive to provide you with the best care possible, within our scope of practice. Naturopathy is ideally suited to the treatment of a range of common health conditions. And we specialise in helping those without a diagnosis who just don’t feel well.
Digestive Health including IBS, Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis
‘Gut’ health is hot right now…and rightfully so! The health of your digestive system can impact on every other part of your body. We use food, lifestyle practices, herbs and targeted supplementation to support clients experiencing constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, IBS, infections and autoimmune diseases of the digestive system.
Men’s Health including hormonal health and prostate concerns
Men may be apprehensive or embarrassed to see a naturopath about sexual and reproductive health concerns. We provide compassionate and confidential naturopathic support for men with hormone imbalance, sexual dysfunction, pelvic pain, urinary and renal conditions, and prostate issues including BPH and prostatitis.
Mental health including anxiety and depression
Anxiety and depression are debilitating conditions, and because they are unseen by those around you, it can be difficult to cope with the continuing demands of modern life. Naturopathic treatments including herbal medicines, lifestyle interventions and dietary inclusions are well studied in the management of these conditions.
The naturopathic management of heart disease, stroke and blood vessel diseases places emphasis on prevention using modifiable lifestyle and dietary interventions. Management of existing cardiovascular disease includes herbal and nutritional supplementation to address nutrient and mineral deficiencies, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, and improve stress management.
Chronic Disease Management
Type 2 Diabetes is an increasingly prevalent condition that is significantly influenced by lifestyle factors. A Naturopath motivates patients to modify diet and lifestyle behaviours, manage stress levels, reduce disease complications, and improve quality of life. Many herbs and nutrients can be safely prescribed either alone or in combination with medications.
Autoimmune (AI) disease is incredibly and is becoming increasingly common. There are a multitude of factors that influence the development of AI, . Naturopaths focus on the modifiable risk factors such as stress, digestive system health, along with environemental and dietary exposures, and we support you to worry less about the factors that you can’t control.
Women’s Health including PCOS, PMS and Hypothalamic Amenorrhoea
Symptoms relating to your period can last all month and include heavy flow, breast tenderness, pain, as well as mood and skin changes. Your periods may be too long, too short, or gone altogether. Naturopaths use herbal medicine, nutrients, lifestyle and dietary inclusions or adjustments to balance your hormones.
Renal and urinary health
Conditions of the kidney and urinary system, including infections, cystitis and kidney dysfunctions including stones, significantly impact upon quality of life. Naturopaths consider the many diet and lifestyle factors that impact functioning, and can address many specific symptoms using herbal medicines and specific supplementation.
