Insulin resistance and metabolic inflammation
Insulin has been talked about a lot lately. Mainly when it comes to trendy diets like keto. “You don’t want to spike your insulin so you better cut out your carbs” I’ve heard it all before. I was personally educated by one of the leading international researchers in ketogenic diets, Jeff Volek. When you are presented with research that has positive outcomes by someone who is a Dr and Professor at a University then it’s important to listen.

What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a distinct and complete system of health care.
Six foundational principles underpin the practice of naturopathy:

* First do no harm,

* Treat the whole person,
* Education and Prevention.
These six principles are kept in mind when a I take your case, develop a treatment plan and offer maintenance for long term good health.

My case-taking through your appointments often uncovers dis-ease long before it has become a diagnosable pathology. I treat both acute and chronic conditions for all ages.
Naturopaths have many answers for common conditions including mental health, gut health, women's health. I use a variety of modalities in my practice. These may include: herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, dietary and lifestyle advice. Testing may also be required.
