As a naturopath, my passion is to help my patients become the healthiest and happiest they can be. The foundation of what I do lies in the prevention of disease and the treatment of uncomfortable or often painful conditions through the use of non-invasive organic herbs, flower essences and supplementation.
My clinic (Just For Your Health, based in Rozelle Sydney) is where I make my useful homeopathic remedies, essential oil blends, flower essences and custom made products – all of which you can purchase right here at herbsonlineshop.com.
Below are just some of the reasons my patients come to see me for professional advice when they want to supplement their healing in a safe and natural way. As always, please feel free to get in touch at any time, herbsonlineshop.com offers free advice to help you get your health sorted and your body feeling its best.
Enlisting the help of a naturopath when trying to fall pregnant can help remove some of the guess work and confusion out of a challenging process. During such an exciting time, it’s critical that your levels of vitamins and minerals are met and factors such as stress are limited. Nutritional deficiencies are common during pregnancy, but with the right supplements and nutritional support you can provide your growing bub and yourself with all the nutrients required for a healthy pregnancy. Supplements and herbs such as our gorgeous Raspberry Leaf may help with morning sickness due to the naturally high levels of magnesium, potassium, iron and b-vitamins which can also ease leg cramps and improve quality of sleep.
Symptoms of IBS
As a naturopath, gut health is a key area I focus on with patients, as the gut is the foundation of a healthy body. Symptoms of an unhappy gut include bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, cramping and discomfort. With the help of a naturopath, each of these symptoms can be examined and traced back to their root cause, which means you heal faster. Food intolerance testing is highly recommended when suffering from IBS symptoms. At the Just For Your Health clinic I use the Food Detective Test from Cambridge Nutritional Sciences (you can see a video of this quick and easy testing on my Instagram page @herbsonlineshop). The whole process is non-invasive and takes just 45 minutes.
Through the use of this one test I can determine a patient’s food allergies and intolerances and can immediately implement a custom nutritional plan with the accompaniment of custom herbs, flower essences and supplements to suit the individual and their needs. Unfortunately, treating IBS and concerns like diarrhoea is made a lot harder when trying to figure it out on your own, this is why a professional such as a naturopath can make the process easier and help you heal a lot faster.
Irregular sleeping patterns, fatigue, drowsiness and irritability are just some signs that your sleep needs to be addressed. Along with making sure you’re getting to bed at a reasonable time, enlisting the help of a naturopath can help make adjusting to a new sleep schedule easier. A naturopath can provide an array of herbs and supplements which can help you fall asleep quicker, stay asleep longer and help balance your mood and energy levels throughout the day.
One of our most popular treatments for sleeping concerns is the herbsonlineshop.com Chronic Fatigue Herbal Extract Drops. These herbal extract drops are designed to stabilise the immune system and improve symptoms of chronic fatigue. Made in my clinic with extracts such as Astragalus, Echinacea, Reishi and Withania, they are a powerful addition to any sleep improvement program.
In addition to working on your sleep, a naturopath can address any underlying issues that may arise due to stress. Unfortunately, so many of us suffer from high levels of stress with high levels of cortisol being a major contributor to anxiety and a sense of overwhelm. If you’re finding that you are stressed and your sleep is suffering, a naturopath can help provide your body with key vitamins that will directly improve your symptoms and therefore your quality of life.
