Ananda Mahony Naturopath Brisbane

Ananda Mahony; Master of Science in Medicine (Pain Management); Graduate Diploma in Nutrition; Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy)

A naturopath of 20 years Ananda is experienced in all areas of general naturopathic practice. Her treatment approach is highly personalised, working to empower patients on their health journey and achieve lasting positive change. In particular Ananda has a special interest in working with people in persistent pain, or those with complex health issues or skin conditions. 

Ananda is...

A compassionate and caring supporter on your journey to better health.

Ananda will support you with clear explanations and understanding about what is going on for you and she meets you where you are currently at and mapping out the steps to better health. Ananda is a big believer in collaboration and tapping into the solutions patient’s already have within them. If new solutions are required, Ananda will be your coach and cheer leader when making necessary changes.

An avid consumer of research

She is passionate about keeping up to date with research and new approaches and has the skill set to translate science to practical patient centred outcomes. She believes in integrative care approaches, with the patient considering the range of options available, be they medical or naturopathic, lifestyle, and working in with their existing health care team.

Curious and determined

Ananda seeks to connect the dots and understand the driving factors contributing to patient health issues or diagnosed conditions. She uses skilled clinical analysis with a range of standard and functional pathology to help establish causative factors and strongly believes in the medical concept 'When you hear hoof beats, think of horses, not zebras’.

An educator

  • Reinforces key concepts to really make them stick
  • Teaching patients how to manage their own health
  • Supporting students to be the best practitioners they can be

On her own journey to balance and wellness

  • Understanding that by supporting myself, I can better support my patients
  • Practicing what I preach, including moderation
  • Is learning to love exercise and embracing her own growth and development, learning to love and accept where she is at with her own health journey

 

Ananda graduated as a naturopath in 1996 and has gone on to add further qualifications to better support her clinical expertise including post-graduate qualifications in Nutrition and a Masters in Pain Management. In addition to clinical practice, Ananda is a lecturer, teaching and mentoring aspiring naturopaths and nutritionists to become skilled practitioners. She is experienced in all areas of general naturopathic practice with a broad focus on health, education and wellbeing.

Taking a patient-centred and evidence informed approach Ananda’s treatment approach is highly personalised; she meets patients where they are currently at and nurtures, supports and guides patients to achieve lasting positive change. One of Ananda’s favourite moments when working with a patient is to get to the stage in their health journey when she can say, ‘touch base if you need to see me’, knowing they have the tools and strategies to maintain their own health and wellbeing.

Over the last 6 years, Ananda has been working extensively with clients experiencing persistent pain. Her interest in pain management stemmed from the observation that patients 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. Ananda incorporates aspects of pain education, nutrition, naturopathy, lifestyle and self-care, working in with patient’s existing persistent pain health care team.

More recently Ananda has brought together her passion for education and her clinical focus on pain management to bring PainWISE, a pain education program for patients in chronic pain. This program doesn’t just focus on pain medication, instead teaches the neuroscience of pain, which empowers patients to understand and manage their pain more effectively.

Although Ananda has a focus on persistent pain, her first area of special interest was in skin health, working with patients distressed by conditions such as psoriasis, acne, rosacea and eczema. She provides a clear path forward, reducing unnecessary medication and provides strategies for clear skin naturally. Her goal is to help patients be the best versions of themselves and love the skin they are in.

Ananda can help with a wide range of health conditions including autoimmune conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis), stress & fatigue management, digestive complaints, hormonal conditions & fertility, functional issues (migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bladder), musculoskeletal problems and neuropathies. 

 Ananda frequently works with NDIS clients to support nutritional needs.

Ananda uses detailed clinical assessment and examination; diagnostic testing and systems approaches to help establish contributors to disfunction and works with individuals to come up with a personalised treatment approach. She takes the time and care to work in with each client’s healthcare team including their specialists, GP and other health professionals.
