Elysia Humphries  :  Naturopath - Nutritionist -  Clinic Founder

elysia_humphries_naturopath_in_brisbane

Elysia has a passion for health care and education. She has 17 years clinical experience working as a Naturopath in Brisbane. She created the Vibe Natural Health clinic with a view to providing clients with results based natural health care, within a friendly and personalised environment.

Her journey towards studying Naturopathy and Nutrition began as a teenager when she had to take months off school due to glandular fever and immune system problems. This came after a period of family stress and this lead her to realise the profound effect that stress can have upon wellbeing. Her family visited both doctors and naturopaths and with a combined treatment plan she recovered her good health and was inspired to study Naturopathy and help others on their journey toward better health.

Elysia is dedicated to health education and has presented health seminars for major corporations such as Telstra, Goodlife Health Clubs, school groups, mothers groups and organisations such as Rotary.  She contributes research and case studies for Australian functional pathology laboratories to help other Practitioners understand how to integrate lab results into treatment plans for clients that work and are "thinking outside the clinical box."  Her regular attendance at seminars and extra training programs keeps her in touch with the latest evidence based treatments and she is experienced at working in a team environment with GPs, Gynaecologists, Obstetricians, Osteopaths, Psychologists, Physiotherapists and other health care professionals.

Elysia believes that education is they key to good health and long term positive change. She will spend time with you, explaining the possible causes behind your symptoms and give you an easy to follow plan to improve your health. Your plan may include: dietary advice and recipes, stress management techniques, pathology testing, herbal medicine and / or nutritional supplements to get your health back on track.

Elysia is a "general practice" naturopath - treating many health conditions, but she has special interest in digestive health, allergy testing, nutrition, hormone health, fertility, sleep and stress management and helping people to boost energy after "burn out."

Elysia was a massage therapist before she became a Naturopath and learnt the importance of keeping the body flexible and moving well. This is why we have a strong focus on massage therapy at Vibe, as massage helps us to nurture the connection between our bodies and minds.

Ananda Mahony - Naturopath - Nutritionist

ananda_mahony_naturopath_brisbaneAs a Naturopath and Nutritionist I enjoy working with a wide range of clients across a varied range of conditions.  I enjoy working as a "general practice Naturopath," plus I have a special interest in treating skin problems and helping people experiencing chronic pain.  My expertise in treating skin conditions came from personally experiencing adult breakouts and chemically sensitive skin in my 20s despite already being a practicing naturopath. So I started by healing my own skin then I have focussed on skin problems with my clients and have successfully helped clients with chronic skin problems for over 10 years.

Over the last 3 years I have also been working extensively with clients experiencing chronic pain. My interest in pain management was born out of frustration that my clients were not getting good results using standard naturopathic and medical approaches, as well as an innate curiosity about what underpinned their pain and how to work more effectively with it. I ended up creating a program that addresses the complicated issues associated with pain and ultimately brings about positive change for many of my clients. Most of my clients arrive by referral – either from other health care professionals or previous clients who have had successful outcomes. Chronic pain is associated with a wide range of conditions including autoimmune conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis), digestive complaints (SIBO, IBS), hormonal conditions (endometriosis), functional issues (migraines, fibromyalgia, vulvodynia, irritable bladder), musculoskeletal problems and neuropathies.

I am passionate about keeping up to date with research and new approaches, and as a senior nutrition lecturer and student supervisor I am able to do this and support new nutritionists on their journey. I also enjoy embracing professional education. I studied Human Nutrition at a post-graduate level at Deakin University and 2 years ago shifted my focus to a Masters in the Science of Pain Management at Sydney University to align more closely with clinical practice.

Ananda can help you with:

Pain related conditions:

  • chronic pain
  • trauma or injury related pain
  • fibromyalgia
  • painful bladder syndrome
  • vulvodynia
  • neuropathy
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • osteoarthritis, gout and arthralgias
  • endometriosis and dysmenorrhoea
  • migraines and headaches

Skin conditions

  • eczema, acne, dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis

Autoimmune conditions

  • psoriasis
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • thyroid conditions - hashimotos, graves and sub-clinical hypothyroid
  • vitilago and hair loss

Mood and energy

  • depression, anxiety, ADHD, stress
  • fatigue, insomnia

Digestion

  • IBS, SIBO, dysbiosis and other digestive related issues
  • Standard and functional pathology testing

I am a member of the following associations:

The Australian Pain Society
International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP)
Naturopathic & Herbalists Association of Australia – an association promoting the registration of Naturopaths


I love food and nutrition however I take a very practical stance. I love to help people with ideas to incorporate local, sustainable and simple whole-foods rather than cutting out food groups unnecessarily. The food I serve at my table is based around these principles and I work with clients in the same way.

On a more personal note the most popular blog I have ever written was about my eyebrows and the process of growing them back after over-plucking (they will never fully recover). I am a nature and animal lover and on weekends can frequently be found in the garden with dirty nails because I can’t find my gloves, my standard poodle, two Bantam chooks and native bees buzzing around. I can successfully grow beautiful flowers but would soon starve if I had to live on produce from my veggie patch!

Evidence Based for your best health:

Evidence based means that the latest research on your condition and the treatment options available for that condition are always taken into account when deciding on your treatment plan.

This means you can rest assured that your condition is researched and you have the best science has to offer in your treatment options.

In order to achieve sustainable and realistic health goals, pathology testing can be a very useful tool, especially in a persistent and chronic health condition. Testing not only assesses key disease markers but can detect, prevent and help give key insights to the cause of your health condition and  treatment options, saving you a lot of time and money by getting your health back on track sooner.

Testing for liver and gut function, the impact of stress on adrenal, thyroid and digestive function, heavy metal levels, food allergies, genetic and MHFTR gene, immune function and autoimmune antibody levels, parasite detection, hormone and lipid levels are just some of the tests offered.
