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," with a broad focus on health and wellbeing. I have a special interest in treating skin problems, digestive health, hormonal health, pregnancy & fertility, and helping people experiencing chronic pain.  Most of my clients arrive by referral – either from other health care professionals or previous clients who have had successful outcomes.

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 and to do that I had to first balance my hormones. Since then I have focussed on skin and hormonal problems with my clients and have successfully helped clients for over 15 years.

Over the last 5 years I have also been working 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 work with patients to addresses the complicated issues associated with pain and bring about positive change for many. 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, 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.

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!
