With my goal being to get you well and keep you well, I start with a full assessment of your medical history, current health, diet and lifestyle. Where relevant, pathology testing and a VLA assessment (see below for details) will be utilised.
To ensure you're receiving effective treatment, I will explain everything in detail and ensure your treatment program addresses not only your current symptoms but also the underlying cause. We can then work together to ultimately correct any imbalances and to restore your body to optimal health using safe and effective natural remedies. If necessary, I will work closely with your doctor or other health care practitioner.
Providing you with knowledge and practical skills to make the lasting changes to your diet is essential to well being. Whether you are new to the concept of healthy eating or have been eating a healthy diet for years, I will partner with you to meet you where you are at.
A new and healthier lifestyle may be required, one that is easy to implement, empowers you and takes you on a journey to renewed energy, health and vitality.
So whether you have sought medical care without resolution, or simply prefer a more natural approach and preventative care, I am here to help.
