“I believe Doctors and Naturopaths can work together to create the best health outcomes for all patients. Nutritional support during medical treatments and medically diagnosed health issues is an effective way to speed recovery and support the body through the process back to health.”
Yes, I can help you with that…
The first question I’m usually asked is, “I’ve just been told I’ve got (insert here, whatever health challenge you’re currently managing). Can you help?” The answer is usually, yes. And here is why.
Naturopathy is a broad spectrum healing profession and I have been specifically trained in managing disease using nutrition, herbs, and homeopathy. I have also undertaken additional training in pharmacology and biochemistry to better understand the interaction of many pharmaceutical drugs with the disease process, and what effect introducing natural remedies is likely to have.
If you are currently managing any of the following, I can help.
General digestive complaints, as well as the more acute concerns of ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel disease (IBS)
Mood disorders (anxiety, depression, seasonal depression )
Chronic pain, arthritis, injury or inflammation
Eczema and other skin complaints
Respiratory issues including bronchitis, asthma, sinus, glue ear
Chronic or acute infections
I can also help with
Fertility concerns (male and female)
What you can expect
People often refer to me as the bridge between two worlds; the connection between mainstream medicine and natural therapies. That’s probably because I’m best known for making treatment choices for each of my patients based on current, cutting edge research, guided by nearly 20 years of experience, as well as a wee sprinkle of intuition.
I am also a balancing point between science and Spirit. True health resides in coming in to honest relationship with Self. I draw on my training and experience as a Reiki Master to interweave this important aspect into your personalised treatment plan.
If you are looking for alternative solutions to your current health challenge, but aren’t sure how naturopathy can best meet your needs, consider these points.
When I work with you, you are:
In control of your own health choices
Are provided with balanced alternatives
Treated as a whole person, (not a disease), and all aspects of your life (as many as you want to divulge, at least) are accounted for in your treatment plan
If you are under the care of a medical doctor your treatment plan will support and integrate with the work you are already doing
Why I work
As a born and bred Territorian, I understand the importance of continuity of care. And that is part of the reason I moved from the Hospitality industry into the profession of Naturopathy, and returned from interstate to practise here, in the Territory.
As a qualified Naturopath I am equipped to deliver solid health guidance, education and support not only to my family, but to my community. Darwin is my home and I am committed to giving back on a long-term basis.
In the continuum of health care available from mainstream to alternative, I sit roughly in the middle. I see my role as almost like a natural therapies general practitioner.
It often takes a significant health issue to arise before we make the connection between quality of life and illness. For true healing to occur, we need to find a dynamic balance between all aspects of ourselves: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
My passion is to equip you with the best possible healing tools suited to your personal needs. To integrate healing at all levels of you, and within your personal world. I firmly believe that with the right combination of nutrition, herbs, homeopathy and mind-body approaches, such as meditation, you can reclaim and maintain improved health.
