What is Naturopathy?

I am a Bachelor qualified Naturopath who specialises in Metabolic Inflammation which includes gut health, thyroid, liver and immune health. Conditions such as hypothyroidism, fatty liver, high cholesterol, diabetes, anxiety, depression & irritable bowel conditions. I help my patients by improving their symptoms while working on repairing the underlying cause. Patients experience amazing results which are seen in their blood tests with improved thyroid markers, cholesterol, and liver markers.  As well as the relief from improved gastrointestinal symptoms like the ones that mean you need to know where every single toilet is before you go anywhere.

With over 20 years experience in working with children and teenagers it is only natural that I also incorporated Children's Health. I understand children. I understand their body language, their behavioural patterns, and their health conditions especially fussy eating.

I have worked as a Group Leader, an Early Childhood Teacher, a Director and an Operations Manager. I have built and restructured many childcare centres to turn them into amazing educational centres rather than just babysitting places. I love being able to combine my knowledge of children with my knowledge and experience in natural medicine.

In addition to my experience with children and teenagers I also have a lot of extensive experience in teaching parents and educators with understanding the behaviours of children and teenagers. I have given many seminars regarding this to parents as well as teaching other educators and departments within Qld Health to improve their teaching skills and knowledge of children.

My education includes two degrees, one in teaching and one in Health Science to become a Naturopath. I believe passionately in what I do and that I can help many families and I have over 20 years experience doing this.
