My belief is that the body has the inherent ability –the vitality- not only to heal itself and restore health but also to ward off disease. As your Naturopath, my role is to identify and remove agents blocking the healing process, bolster your healing capacity, and support you in achieving your health and wellness goals.
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of classical medicine. The origins of which date back to the times when physicians studied the process of health as well as the process of disease. It was a time when people understood the healing ability of their own body.
The core philosophy of naturopathy is that treatment must be individualised and that the treatment be designed to treat the whole person not just the symptoms. The ultimata goal is to do no harm.
Nutritional & Metabolic Profiling – Nutritional Therapy
Health begins and ends at the cellular level. Through the use of Nutritional Therapy it is possible to provide the body with the building blocks for life. These building blocks provide the body with the means by which it can not only repair the damage caused through oxidative stress but also help to reverse and repair degenerative disease. Nutritional therapy is used to treat conditions such as Headaches, Candida, Stress, Colds and Flu, Skin Problems, Musculoskeletal deficiency, Nutritional deficiencies and more.
Nutritional & Metabolic profiling has been used in agriculture since the 1970’s to improve the health of livestock. Having now developed a sophisticated Nutritional and Metabolic Profiling for use with people, I can identify the presence or absence of oxidative stress and nutritional and metabolic imbalances. These imbalances if left unchecked may lead to serious health concerns or may be the cause of your existing health challenges.
Nutritional and Metabolic Profiling offers a truly personalized approach to your healthcare

We interpret your iris signs to establish how your body is working, what your genetic inheritance dictates and what natural medicines may be the most appropriate to enhance your health.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
Preliminary concepts in cranial work were first put forward in the early 1900s by Osteopathic Physician William Sutherland who theorized that the Central Nervous System and its associated structures were in a state of constant motion.
In the 1970’s Dr John Upledger observed a movement in the Dura Mater the membrane that encompasses the Brain and Spinal Cord. Dr Upledger then launched a series of scientific studies at the Michigan State University that eventually proved there is movement in both the Cranium and the Dura Mater.
It was through this work that Dr Upledger devised a model for modifying the system through Hands-on therapy, establishing the scientific basis of Cranial Sacral Balancing used today.
Although there have been several variants of CranioSacral therapy developed in recent years, it is widely accepted that the Upledger methods are still the most effective which is why I chose to train with the Upledger Institute
