  • Why go to see Geraldine?
  • Who does she treat?
  • Has she seen anyone like me?

Perhaps you can relate to one of the following?

Digestive Problems
A healthy digestive system is the foundation of a healthy body. Bloating, reflux, Crohn’s disease, medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis can all benefit from naturopathic medicine. While alleviating the symptoms we treat and heal the highly complex lining of the digestive tract to ensure lasting results

Food Issues & Intolerance
Do you suspect you or your child has an intolerance to a certain food? Different from a true allergy (such as anaphylaxis from eating shellfish), symptoms of an intolerance are delayed and can take upwards of 24 hours to manifest, making it hard to identify the cause. Your symptoms can often alert an experienced naturopath to the offending foods but it may be that we recommend a hair test to get a list of sensitivities. Chemical and environmental substances will also show up on a hair test.

Kids Clinic
Constant runny nose, ear infections, bad tempers, trouble sleeping, colic, asthma, eczema, autism, ADHD, allergies, and many more problems...

Children respond incredibly well to natural medicines. Changes are often fast and deep-seated, having beneficial effects on physical, mental and emotional levels.
Do you suspect your child has a food allergy or intolerance? A concentration/behaviour problem? A vitamin or mineral deficiency? Everything from Colic and eczema through to ADHD and childhood obesity is treated by Geraldine.

Babies with colic & new mums getting to grips with their new babies, are regular attenders, all happy and achieving positive results after seeing Geraldine.

Teenagers can have complex emotional issues, having to dealing with media and peer pressure and, as parents we are sometimes lost as to how to help, Geraldine has seen many teenagers and "tweens" (10-13) with eating problems, skin troubles, and feelings of low self esteem, this group responds well to Geraldine's practical and no-nonsense approach, they value their time with her as she does with them.

You don’t have to suffer painful, heavy, irregular periods or the emotional roller coaster that can plague those with menstrual problems. Conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis and fibroids can all benefit from a holistic approach. Natural remedies specific to your unique cycle can help balance hormones and make a huge difference to your life.
Unsettling hot flushes, restless nights, poor memory, moodiness/tearfulness and weight gain are all symptoms of menopause. Menopause is of course a natural part of life, but it doesn’t have to be torture! We work with natural remedies to help you and your body through this time.

Men's Health
High blood pressure, gout, hemorrhoids, low sperm count, IBS, Crohn's disease, acne, are just some of the issues that Geraldine has seen in her clinic, please call to discuss your problems and find out if there is a remedy to suit you.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Tissue mineral analysis is a good indicator of the metabolic processes occurring within the cells (intracellular), hair can be collected more quickly and easily than blood, urine or any other tissue, it's more cost effective, and it provides information about substances entering the hair from the blood serum as well as from external sources, hair is invaluable in the assessment of toxic metal levels.
