Stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia

Are you exhausted, overwhelmed with the struggle of every day tasks, tired but wired? These symptoms along with anxiety, depression and nervousness may indicate your nervous system needs some support. Many factors such as poor nutritional status, adrenal fatigue, food intolerances could be to blame. In this day and age it can be hard to lead a completely stress free lifestyle. However I can help you with the use of nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, functional testing and supplementation to ensure you and your body can deal with life stresses and demands.

Pre conception, Fertility, Pregnancy

Preconception, fertility and pregnancy is a passion and specialty of mine. There is no better way to ensure your baby has the best start to life than to prepare your body for it. The time before you fall pregnant and during influences your childs health for the rest of their life.  Going into pregnancy with a healthy body and mind will ensure a much more wonderful experience and may decrease pregnancy related problems such as miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, low birth weight, hemorrhoids and gestational diabetes.

Don’t forget your partner contributes to 50% of the DNA of the baby. I recommend both partners come in for a full consult.

Poor sperm health is a huge contributor to infertility, however naturopathy has much success in boosting the health of the sperm.

If you are having trouble conceiving we will investigate any underlying cause to enhance your ability to conceive. Many of the conditions that can affect fertility such as PCOS, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance benefit from natural medicine.

Hormone Imbalance

Symptoms such as PMT, heavy, irregular, or painful menstruation, acne, mood swings, menopausal symptoms, headaches, and migraines don’t need to be part of your every day life. Natural medicine can help balance your cycle and alleviate many debilitating symptoms.

In many cases it could be useful to do a Urine & Saliva Hormone Test. Urine & Saliva is an accurate way of testing your hormones because it measures the free and active hormone levels. Blood hormones on the other hand are predominantly bound to a protein and rendered inactive. Therefore, blood hormone tests are not as accurate to detect hormonal imbalances.

The Dutch Complete Urine Hormone Test also tests the metabolism of sex and adrenal hormones, giving a more accurate indication of required treatment.

Digestion

You may have heard the saying ‘all disease begins in the gut’. Ensuring proper gut health is always at the forefront of naturopathic treatment. Signs you may have an unhealthy digestion?

• Acid reflux
• Throat and nose issues (clearing throat, runny nose, etc.)
• Gas/bloating
• Inflammation in the body
• Skin disorders
• Negative reactions to food
• Loose stools or constipation

Natural medicine can help with the above and such conditions such as Crohns, ulcerative colitis, candida and IBS.

Food Intolerance Testing

Do you suspect you or your child is reacting to a certain food? Particular symptoms you are experiencing may require you to undertake a hair test to detect any offending foods and preservatives/additives. Environmental and chemical substances also show up, along with adrenal, liver , candida and thyroid imbalances . Your hair is sent away and takes about three weeks for results to come in.

• Acid reflux
• Throat and nose issues (clearing throat, runny nose, etc.)
• Gas/bloating
• Inflammation in the body
• Skin disorders
• Negative reactions to food
• Loose stools or constipation

Natural medicine can help with the above and such conditions such as Crohns, ulcerative colitis, candida and IBS.

Kids Clinic

Conditions I often see in clinic include poor immune system (frequent colds), eczema, recurrent ear infections, reflux, colic, fussy eating, asthma, constant runny noses, constipation. All these conditions plus more is often easily remedied with natural medicine. I would love to help your child feel well and content and the days spent with your child be happy and easy.

Nutritional Advice

Sometimes we just aren’t feeling our best. Sometimes simple dietary tweaks is all that is needed to regain your vitality, increase your energy and have radiant skin. If you are feeling overwhelmed with what you should be eating, have gained or even lost some weight a consultation will help you. Naturopathy doesn’t follow a strict or specific diet. Instead we focus on nourishing and wholesome foods that serve each unique individual.

Every client will come away with dietary support to help them along their health journey.

The use of scientific based functional testing may be recommended to detect and address any underlying causes of your ongoing health concerns. Testing offered through a Naturopath consultation may include:

Food intolerance test
Stool analysis
Urine and salvia hormone testing
Mineral zinc test
Blood test
