We give you the opportunity to participate in your health care and be in control of your health. We'll show you practical, easy ways to improve your energy levels, discover blocks  to optimum body function and empower you with the tools to boost your physical and emotional fitness.

What problems do you treat?

You can come to see a Naturopath with a specific problem, like tiredness or poor digestion and get effective help to ease those symptoms.

You may visit a Naturopath because you want to improve your health and learn what foods best suit your body's needs, lose weight, optimise your hormone function, learn how to prevent illness to stay as well and as energetic as possible.

You may find yourself saying "I just don’t feel quite right" or "I know I could feel better than I do." Our Brisbane Naturopaths will help you to understand your body’s signals and become more healthy, inside and out.

What if I’m already seeing a Doctor, Specialist or on medication?

Our Naturopaths are experienced in working with GP’s and Specialists. Regular health checkups and blood tests from your GP will assist our Naturopaths to understand more about your health. Please bring copies of recent blood tests to your consultation. If you are on prescription medication, there are many dietary and herbal options for you that won’t interfere with these medications. We are experienced with drug/ herb interactions and take care to ensure your herbal medicine is safe and effective and won’t interfere with your prescription medications.

Our practice consists of GPs, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists, Osteopaths, Psychologists, Nutritionists and Massage Therapists. We have patient meetings and meet weekly to educate each other about the latest research and treatment methods in our field, to give you the highest standard of care.


What testing can you do?

The best way to understand the cause of dysfunction in the body is to take a comprehensive health history. Your Naturopath will spend an hour with you at your first consultation asking questions about all the systems in your body – this gives us the framework to understand which areas of your body are working well and which areas need help.

Your Naturopath will give you an evaluation of your health, a plan for your treatment and then ask you in which order of priority you would like to treat your health issues.

Tests which may be performed during your consultation: (if needed)

Iridology

Analysis of your eyes, discovering genetic strengths and weaknesses in your organs and body systems.

Zinc status test

Zinc is a mineral essential for health hormone function, metabolism, immune health and the repair of hair, skin and nails.

Lab Testing options:

The following tests can be performed for those who need them. They are sent to accredited pathology laboratories and incur lab test fees.

Food Allergy Testing

Find out which foods are causing irritation to your body with food intolerance testing. A food intolerance is different to an allergy. Food allergies are quick, with obvious reactions such as peanut allergy. Intolerances can irritate the digestive tract and can take a few hours/ days for you to notice the symptoms. This makes them tricky to diagnose, so testing removes the guesswork.

96 Food Test

This test gives you a comprehensive report on your reactions to 96 common foods. Results list if there is no immune reaction or a low, medium or high reaction so you can tell how much the body is affected by each food tested.

Helpful for digestive problems like bloating, constipation, irritable bowel, sinus, hayfever, recurrent colds/ flus, headaches, fluid retention, skin rashes, eczema and general tiredness.

Hormone Testing

Saliva hormone testing is an easy way to test your hormones without blood tests. Hormones tested in the blood are both active hormones ready to be used by your cells and inactive, bound hormones. Blood test readings list active and inactive hormones.

Saliva tests can give you an accurate picture of your active hormones because only the active hormones travel into saliva. So if you’ve been suspecting a hormone imbalance and not felt right about your body then this test may be helpful.

Issues which may be helped by this test: weight gain, infertility, period problems, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, menopause, hormonal headaches, tiredness, mood swings.

Stress Hormone testing ( adrenal fatigue saliva cortisol test)

Test your cortisol and DHEA levels to measure the effect that stress has taken on your body. Melatonin can also be tested for those with insomnia.

 

Client testimonial – lowering cholesterol with healthy diet and herbs

“Having read a lot about diet and healthy lifestyle I had always wanted to seek advice from a Naturopath to reinforce what I already knew and as someone to guide me toward the best possible health now and for the future.

I was spurred on to see a Naturopath by my GP saying that my high cholesterol may have to be controlled by taking prescription medication. A major point of difference between the GP and yourself, is the solution to the problem -   you actually look at the body as a whole, make suggested changes to the diet and by adding supplements etc, see a solution.   You take a  pro active approach, - and a 'it will work attitude.”  And by the way.......my cholesterol has gone down significantly!!" J. Gordon.
