Good health is the most important asset we have.
As a Naturopath, I look for the root cause for your health complaint. I work quickly to restore the foundations of health to have you feeling better than ever.
I help people to make lasting changes to improve their health through integrated nutrition and an individual approach to your health.
Your health is an equation of your genetics, lifestyle, environmental exposures and diet. I believe we are bio-individuals so a protocol approach simply does not work for everyone. Which is why I provide a highly individualised service to all my patients.
I help my clients reach their health and wellness goals through identifying and crowding out bad habits that may be compounding or exacerbating a condition. I help my patients to find and create ‘new and good’ habits, correcting pathological conditions through nutritional and herbal medicines, empowering you by providing patient education of human biochemical processes, nutritional analysis, personalised wellbeing strategies and meal planning.
How can a Naturopath help to improve my health?
A Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy is a four year degree. It covers chemistry, biology, microbiology, pathology, medical diagnostics, psychology and counseling, nutritional medicine, dietetics, herbal medicine, sociology and myotherapy.
A Naturopath is trained to look at all the signs and symptoms you present with along with the pathophysiology of how systems work optimally to find the root cause of your health concerns and provide treatment based on mimicking mother nature, to gently persuade the body’s natural mechanisms to start the healing process.
If digestion isn’t functional, we can’t absorb nutrients from our food. I always start here through the use of nutrition, diet plans and menus as well as herbal medicines and nutritional supplements to support detoxification and managing the cravings!
- IBS and IBD
- Bloating, constipation and diarrhoea
- Food intolerance
- Hypochlorhydria and reflux (heartburn)
- Weight management
Stress & Fatigue
Naturopathy uses a holistic approach to re-invigorating the body by supporting it’s immune and nervous system. For clients suffering the impacts of stress and fatigue, a focus is also given to providing the energy and ability to positively handle stress and improve the body’s coping mechanisms. Stress and fatigue are as fundamental to treat as digestive issues.
- Adrenal fatigue
- Insomnia and sleep
- Cognitions and memory
- Hormonal imbalance
Mental health and the gut-brain axis
With the right building blocks, your body systems work correctly. Your brain needs carbohydrates for fuel, amino acids (from protein) for neurotransmitters and healthy fats for cell structure – how do we manage this? Through nutrition and your gut microbiome.
I always look at genetics or ‘epigenetics’, hormonal balance, metabolic cycles, life stage, blood sugar regulation, methylation and detoxification pathways, diet and lifestyle as factors for mental health.
- Autism spectrum
Functional Testing – pathology
By utilising targeted pathology testing I can get to the root cause of your health issues with my technique of thorough patient case taking – my initial appointments are a full hour. I use functional pathology testing diligently and pragmatically in combination with my own line of questioning of your health history.
An example of functional testing is Organic Acids Test (OAT) to discover blockages in your metabolic health, food allergy testing, spot dried urine hormonal testing or a saliva test for ‘stress hormone’ cortisol levels.
We can also get great information on pathogens from a GI360 test or Microbiome testing for an overall view of your gut health including bacteria, yeasts, mould and parasites.
- Hormone testing – reproductive, thyroid, stress
- Metabolic cycles – for energy, sleep,
- Amino Acids
- Gut Health and the Microbiome
- Genetic Testing
- Neurotransmitter production and balance
- Food Allergy Testing
Understanding the impact that environmental toxins can have on your well-being. Georgia can develop a plan with you to detoxify as gently and easily as possible.
- Kidney and genitourinary health
- Liver function
- Skin health
Skin conditions can be sensitive and difficult as they reoccur or flare up. Our skin is like our second liver and skin conditions are often indicative of an underlying imbalance or cause in the body. Georgia is trained to provide support and relief for symptoms while treating you to decrease the rate and severity of re-occurrence.
Naturopaths often see dysregulation of hormonal imbalance, inflammation, mood. We can support you with:
- Post-partum and breastfeeding
Hay fever & Allergies
Through the use of nutrition and herbal medicine, naturopathy can decrease the allergic response and symptoms associated with hay fever and allergies. Using a holistic approach, we can regulate the immune systems response to allergens whether it is pollens/dust or food sensitivities.
