As a Naturopath I look at the underlying reasons as to why you may be in a place of compromised health.
The focus is on supporting the underlying organs and systems through diet, lifestyle, herbs, nutrients, Australian Bush Flower Essences and education, to help bring you back into a place of balance, “homeostasis”. If the presenting condition has symptomology that is acute and needs relief, that is certainly given priority.
The body has an innate ability to heal itself, we need to give it good whole food and nutrients, along with lifestyle interventions to allow it to do this, while supporting you as a whole “holistic” being.
My initial consult is 60-75 minutes, this is because I take the time to listen and hear “your story”. I ask many questions; this enables me to put together an individualised treatment plan for you. I really want to get to know how you arrived at this place of imbalance, this allows me to best support and empower you on the path to wellness. I also include some diagnostics like looking at your pupils, fingernails, tongue and take your blood pressure, along with any recent laboratory testing. Together these all become ‘pieces of the puzzle’ and give incredible insight into what is happening and has happened prior to now.
I am available for consults at Nadja’s Family Acupuncture Clinic in Eumundi on Thursday & Saturday mornings from 8 am to 1 pm and in Gympie by appointment. I offer consults via Skype or phone call and can also do home consults.
If you have any questions or would like a consult I would love to connect with you.
