What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathic Medicine supports and allows the body to heal itself with the use of safe, gentle, non-toxic natural medicines. The core principle of Naturopathy is to find and correct the underlying cause of illness. Poor health is not a spontaneous or random event, there is always a cause, and once that is identified and treated, then good health is possible for everyone. I will help you to find the cause of your ill health, and then assist you on your path to wellness.
What Testing Techniques are used?
In my clinic, I use a variety of testing techniques to aquire as much information about your health as possible. I then recommend a personalised treatment programme including diet and lifestyle advice and medicines tailored to your specific needs. I offer you continued support and guidance throughout your programme.
Often, the cause of illness is not obvious, symptoms tell us that there is something not right within the body.
Symptoms are often just “the tip of the iceberg”, and the true cause of illness lays hidden and untreated.
My clinical testing techniques can uncover the true cause of your symptoms or illness.
You will be provided with a personalised health report with a comprehensive health restoration plan to help you to achieve your health goals. This report is yours to keep and will enable you to track your progress over time.
One of the great benefits of the Naturopathic approach, is that it can detect subtle imbalances in your health, BEFORE they become more serious and more difficult to treat.
I use a variety of Naturopathic screening tools to assist in the detection of the following conditions:
A Naturopathic consultation with Denise provides accurate and immediate information about your health, and it takes the “guess work” out of identifying the cause of your health issues.
You will be amazed at what Naturopathic medicine can do for your health.
Iridology has been an important part of my practice for 17 years. Iridology is the study of health through the examination of the eye.
The Iris is one of the most complex structures in the human body, and each Iris has over 28,000 nerve endings. The Iris has a reflex connection to every organ and tissue in the body through the nervous system. Many iridologists believe that disruptions in these connections are recorded in the Iris, and indicate potential health issues in the specific reflex area.
The Iris (the coloured part of the eye) and the Sclera (the white part of the eye), can reveal so much about your health, including your inherited strengths and areas that need to be nurtured and supported. Even personality traits can be seen in the Iris. Iridologists assess variations of colour and structure in the Iris to assess the constitutional strengths of the body. You will discover incredible and accurate information about your health potential.
I use a specialised Canon EOS 1100D Iris camera, that takes wonderful close up photos of your eyes. You get to see your own Iris with all its intricacies on the screen during your consultation. You will receive information and analysis explaining all the signs in your Iris, what they mean, and how you can best support your health for future wellness and happiness.
Blood Type Testing
Over the thousands of years of human evolution, four types of blood have developed. These apparently parallel the migrations and processes of civilisation in human society. The original human blood type of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, known as the O type can be traced back over 40,000 years. The next type to appear was A type, which seems to accompany the rise of agricultural societies in the middle east around 20,000 years ago. Five to ten thousand years later, in the Himalayan highlands, the nomadic herders arose, and with them appears the B type. Finally, only 1000 years ago, the AB type became evident as a result of the tumultuous racial mixing that occurred with the many invasions of that time.
Your blood type determines how your body reacts to the foods you eat……
What makes this clinically relevant is the existence of lectins- abundant and diverse proteins found in the majority of foods. Lectins are surface markers that aid inter-cellular adhesion. For instance, they help bacteria adhere to cell surfaces to facilitate infection and they enable our immune systems to identify and destroy those same organisms. All lectins can react with blood type agglutinogens.
Depending on which lectins a food contains, some foods may be harmful to a person’s physiology, others will be neutral, and yet others may actually be beneficial. Continually eating foods that do not suit your blood type can lead to inflammation, leaky gut syndrome, allergies and weight gain. Consequently, eating foods that are highly beneficial for your blood type can help to reverse many health conditions and also promote weight loss. This is the basis of The Blood Type Diet, developed by Dr. Peter DÁdamo.
Blood type testing is a quick and simple in clinic test. You will receive printed information and advice on the most beneficial foods for your particular blood type.
Try the blood type diets and feel and see the difference!
Heavy Metal Testing
Toxic or heavy metals are now an unfortunate part of our environment. The extra load on the human body is being chronically increased over time, and will contribute to a decrease in the overall state of wellness in every person.
“At least 90% of all chronic diseases can be attributed to environmental pollution. Heavy metals were reported to be the major source for the production of free radicals as well as undermining the internal environment and body chemistry.
Heavy metals reduce the efficacy of medical treatment by up to 60%. There is little hope for antioxidants and mineral supplements, if the body is burdened with heavy metals.”
World Health Organisation (WHO)
Toxic metals such as Aluminium, Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury can cause a variety of health problems including:
Could toxic metals be contributing to your health problems?
My in clinic urine and saliva heavy metal test, can reveal the answer. Find out if heavy metals are causing problems with your health, and discover effective ways to avoid and eliminate them.
Urinary pH test
Subtle changes to the pH of the body can have detrimental effects on your health including bone density, kidney function, pain and inflammation, detoxification and hormonal balance. Urinary pH is an effective indicator of the acid load of the body.
You will discover ways to achieve and maintain good urinary pH levels
Zinc Taste Test
Zinc is vital to the growth and repair of all tissues, the activity of many hormones, and for a healthy immune system. Symptoms and signs of zinc deficiency in people may include slow growth, poor wound healing, hair loss, behavioural and emotional disorders, rashes, diarrhoea and decreased immune function.
Could you be zinc deficient? The zinc taste test provides instant and reliable information about your zinc status.
I offer several effective and popular programs to help you achieve your health goals including:
Some patients require specific pathology tests to reveal the cause of their health condition.
Healthscope Functional Pathology testing and Hair Analysis is conveniently available through this clinic.
All Health Fund Rebates are Available depending on your level of cover.
Don’t wait, make a positive change today. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to live a happier, healthier life….. Denise
