Our aim is to provide better health for the whole family, and Ada is passionate about assisting her clients to regain, achieve and maintain their good health and well being goals. Promoting better life style, diet changes & exercise. Educating and encouraging healthy living habits, as well as correcting health issues clients present with.
At the initial consultation Ada will take a comprehensive health history, family history and any prescription medication will be carefully noted. She will go over diet, work issues, assess stress levels, sleeping habits & energy levels. Ada then uses tools such as pulse & tongue diagnosis, nail diagnosis and Iridology to gather some more health information, before she sits with the client to work their individual 'return to health' program. Ada uses herbal & nutritional medication , detoxification and weight loss programmes, some homeopathic drops, Bach & flower essences or body work as well as diet & lifestyle changes to assist the client achieve their health goals.
People from all walks of life, and all ages come to the clinic. From babies, toddlers & children to mature and old age, and though she treats many people for chronic diseases, she also sees many clients for preventative health, flu, colds, overseas trip health maintenance & winter health maintenance.
The medications Ada uses help to stimulate the innate healing response with minimum intervention, while maximising vitality and health. The medications are gentle on the body, and great care is taken to avoid any possible interaction with prescription medications. Ada will usually meet the client for repeat consultations after 2 - 4 weeks, though in acute conditions usually after 4 - 7 days.
Most conditions respond well to natural therapies and life style changes, and while treatment of chronic conditions is sometimes slow, acute problem's response to treatment can be very fast.
Ada believes that our health is the result of the interaction between our body, mind, emotions and our environment, be it physical (diet, work,chemical exposure, lack of exercise, drink, smoking,lack of sleep etc.), emotional ( lack of joy, happiness & love, or too much anger, grief, hate etc.), mental (stress, depression, worry) or spiritual. When the interaction becomes toxic, disease will follow. Once we identify the source of toxicity and remove it, health and well being will follow.
