Growing up with a dad suffering from severe paranoid szchizophrenia I have an empathetic and understanding approach towards the complexeties surrounding mental and physical wellbeing. Watching a loved one slowly getting sicker, I knew there had to be a better answer to our fragmented healthcare system. My passion of natural medicine grew supporting my family’s health and those around me looking for a more holistic approach to their lifestyle.
About Naturopathy, Functional Nutrition & Energetic Healing
Registered Naturopaths are qualified health professionals that place a focus on science based natural medicine without ignoring the wisdom of our body's lived experiences. Qualified naturopaths require ongoing continuing professional education and are governed by an ethical code to ensure a high level of intregrity is practiced.
Naturopathy is best described as using natural based interventions that emphasizes preventive care. Consultations are based around striving to understand your specific needs and personalizing every step of your experience.
Naturopathy encompasses a variety of treatment methods including:
- Herbal Medicine
- Supplements for bio-individualised nutrition
- Lifestyle advice to build a more loving way of living
- Homoeopathic medicine
In addition, the use of functional nutrition incorporates food as preventative medicine; as a readily accessible natural way to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, and diabetes; to promote optimal weight; to support memory and mental wellbeing; and to enhance overall wellbeing. Special diets may be recommended for particular therapeutic purpose and are tailored to each person's genetic makeup, biochemistry, symptoms, and individual lifestyles.
My approach is to support the body functionally through applying the principles of naturopathy and nutrition. And because "everything is energy" as Albert Einstein so famously said, we need to consider our bodies energetically and how life impacts our health. Looking at life energetically empowers one to understand their own body and identify unique to you, the true cause of illness and disease. ~The key to living life energetically is to swim like a fish in the sea and not get wet!
