Naturopathic Consultations

A naturopathic consultation consists of an initial appointment where I gather information about you and your health history, diet and lifestyle. I then research the information you have given me and work on finding the underlying cause of your health condition. This gives us a treatment plan with what you need to do to help your body heal itself and promote wellness. Treatment options include diet and lifestyle recommendations, nutritional supplementation or herbal remedies where needed. Further testing may be recommended. 

The process

  1. Book an appointment to see Anita

  2. Fill out intake forms and collect the last 12 months of blood test results from your doctor.

  3. Return forms to Anita 

  4. Initial appointment: Bring along any medications and/or supplements you are taking. Allow an hour for me to listen to your story, do some testing such as blood pressure, weight and measurements, zinc taste testing and any other relevant markers of health. We then talk about your treatment expectations and any further testing that may be required.  

  5. Report of findings: We discuss what I have found from the information you have provided and the testing I have conducted, nicely presented in a folder for you to keep. This includes dietary and lifestyle guidelines, treatment plan and recommendations. 

  6. Follow up appointments are weekly to four weekly depending on our plan and your commitment to living your best life.

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

Blood chemistry is a very effective tool for me to screen and identify  imbalances in your body. By using blood test results in their optimal ranges instead of standard lab range, it is an inexpensive way to assess the body for dysfunction in a system before disease occurs. Using the skills required to analyse blood chemistry panels I can provide you with sound recommendations, screen for health issues and monitor changes. 

Nutritional Supplements

Nutritional supplements support the dietary guidelines that form the backbone of good health care. I only recommend high quality and clinically effective products that are often "Practitioner Only" products and support programmes. This ensures that you are getting the correct dose for your treatment. The products I recommend have undergone rigorous testing and are of the highest standard.  

Body Therapies
  • Swedish massage

Massage technique, generally used to help relax the body, uses effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fibre or with the fibres) and vibration/shaking. Massage can be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness and reducing stress. 

  • Lymphatic drainage

A gentle type of massage which encourages the natural drainage of lymph, and carries waste products and excess fluid from the tissues back toward the heart. This technique is done over clothing

Testimonials

 

Hi Anita,

Thank you for you help with greatly improving my son's eczema. Logan is 2 and a half and started getting dry patches on his back which quickly spread to cover most of his back. After trying a range of different creams (which didn't help), I wanted to determine the cause of the ezcema so it could be treated long term. Urine and hair sample tests were easy and painless, and gave a clear idea of what foods to reduce the intake of. I have to admit that I thought it would take a while to see a difference, but within a week his back was clear!

Thank you again
