We focus on natural alternatives for healing using prescribed targeted herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, wholefood eating plans, exercise, and lifestyle changes. We offer you an entirely new approach to regaining and maintaining wellness - instead of being the ambulance at the end of the road, we focus on preventive medicine. One on One Practitioners Consultations offer you the best chance of tackling a health condition or maximising your health and vitality. 


Your Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation the Practitioner will obtain your medical history, perform a complete physical exam, provide nutritional and dietary recommendations, recommend laboratory testing, and provide you with the outline of a health plan. 

Before Your First Visit

Prior to your scheduled visit we ask you to complete the comprehensive health assessment form provided. The form is about 7 pages and we ask patients to allocate one hour to thoroughly complete this form. The information you provide helps us properly assess your health requirements. The form acts as a skeleton for the detailed history that will be obtained from you during your initial visit. If required please bring copies of labwork or imaging to be reviewed.

WELLNESS FAQ'S

What is the Naturopathic philosophy?

The focus of the naturopathic philosophy is to uncover the fundamental cause of a disease, dysfunction, or symptom; bring the body into balance, support its ability to heal, and sustain the conditions required for optimal health to thrive in.

What is Herbal Medicine?

Herbal medicine (or phytotherapy) has been widely used for centuries and today is prescribed by thousands of naturopaths, herbalists and doctors worldwide. Herbal medicines are made from specific plants and plant extracts. Herbal medicine prescribed by a qualified practitioner can support the health of the whole body may be used to assist the functioning of a number of vital systems in the body including the digestive, respiratory, immune, detoxification and nervous systems.

I buy supplements from a store, what advantages are there in seeing a qualified Naturopath?

People believe that by taking supplements they are enhancing their health. The media is always trying to convince you that you need this great new product. But are you really taking what is best for you? This one size fits all philosophy doesn’t work as we are all unique. By visiting a Qualified Naturopath & Registered Medical Herbalist you are professionally prescribed what is right for you and you only. The “practitioner only” strength and range of supplements means you are assured of both quality and efficacy of what you are putting into your body. Ultimately, you will be benefiting both your pocket and your health.
