If you aren't feeling your best but can't seem to put your finger on what's wrong (or what's not right!), you may be among the millions of people accepting life at a sub-standard level of health.
Do any of these common symptoms sound familiar?
You lack energy, motivation and enthusiasm most days;
You regularly have headaches or dull body pain;
You often feel uncomfortable after eating;
Your libido has gone missing, and it's affecting your relationship;
PMS and mood swings ruin your life for one week each month;
Diets and exercise don't seem to help you to lose weight,
You often feel anxious or depressed without reason or have trouble sleeping,
You are super health conscious but can't seem to fall pregnant,
You have been to see your GP, who has referred you to a specialist who has done all the tests, yet the blood tests all say there is nothing wrong...
The great news is: you are not alone and it doesn't have to be that way.
The common scenarios outlined above is actually where naturopathic medicine shines. While initially hesitant, many of my clients are always delighted that very quickly they feel at ease and a simple consultation with me has been able to reveal and help remove the obstacles that stand between them and their own wellbeing in a way they have never seen before.
Here are some short videos from real clients after their first couple of sessions with me :
- Alissandra is a mum juggling parenting and running her own consulting business with fatigue and chronic pain that was getting in the way of her success. She was excited to know that there was a path out of chaos and overwhelm with easy to follow family meal planning and relieving herbal and nutritional prescriptions
- Listen as Marc, who has dealt with chronic gut health issues and physical discomforts for many years and no stranger to naturopathic medicine, talks about his experience and finally finding balance on a level he has not encountered before
To achieve optimum health of body, mind and spirit, allow me to draw upon a variety of modalities to design for you a tailored, individualised wellness plan incorporating nutrition, remedial massage, herbal medicine, energetic healing, Flower Essences and breathwork.
Functional Pathology Testing may be ordered to get to the source of what may be ailing you. This may require blood, saliva, stool or hair samples to be sent to a lab and analysed to show levels of hormones, cholesterol, blood glucose, bacteria, enzymes, nutrients, minerals, heavy metals, genetic profiles, food intolerances and immunological factors. These results can show us what is happening inside your body at a cellular level and, though available for them to use, are different to the tests that most GPs prescribe routinely.
Naturopathy is excellent for anyone with an acute condition (such as cold or flu or inflammation sports injury or accident) with a chronic condition (such as chron's disease, IBS, hayfever, arthritis or psoriasis). For those in remission from cancer, undergoing IVF or planning an unavoidable surgery, Naturopathy may provide symptomatic relief from medication side effects and can get you back on the road to recovery better and fitter than ever before. There is no health condition that natural medicine can not support !
Doctors and medical visits can be time consuming, and poor health can affect your self-confidence, your mood and motivation.
Why limit your ability to be, do and have the kind of life you really want ?
We all can all agree that a personal trainer can help you get great physical results from exercise. Similarly, as a health coach and mentor, my role is to guide and motivate you to achieve your health goals by helping you stay accountable to small achievable changes to your diet and lifestyle. This can positively reduce the number of prescription medications you may have to take, reduce sick days, and speed up recovery from illness and surgery.
Your time is valuable, use it wisely !
