About - Jayne Sharpham
Hi, I'm Jayne. I have worked in the natural health field for over 15 years as a qualified naturopath and also in health food management roles and in pharmacy. I am a qualified naturopath, western herbalist and nutritionist. I completed my studies in May 2006 in Brisbane, QLD. Having moved back to Tamworth, I love the rural lifestyle and am proud to be helping those with their natural health care needs in this area.
I am available 4 days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Fridays) for appointments at 120 Bridge Street, West Tamworth. Health fund rebates are available for my consults as well as onsite HICAPS and EFTPOS. I am an ANTA registered therapist.
A wide variety of good quality supplements and herbal medicines are available from the clinic.
I have a passion for natural health and would love to help you achieve a greater sense of wellbeing. My special areas of interest are pyrrole disorder, mental health such as treating depression and anxiety, fatique, adrenal burnout and digestion. I do offer referrals for pathology testing. I look forward to meeting with you in the clinic.

What does a consultation involve and what is the cost?
As part of your consultation we sit down and go right through your health history, diet and lifestyle, what you have tried, what hasn't worked etc. I offer zinc testing, and also analysis of the tongue and nails. I use other health screening tools to to give you more insight into your health. I also do body composition analysis with a full report.
I can also offer Hair Mineral Analysis testing, hormone profile testing, referral for bowel parasite testing, pryolles testing and MTHFR testing if needed. During the consult we can chat about achieving results for you - this may be with diet, supplements and lifestyle changes or a combo of all of these.
