Naturopath, mother, pharmacist, wife, body boarder, adventure seeker, comedian, camper, gardener….I’m Julie Smethurst and I’m really passionate about guiding people on their path to better health and well being.
Who am I?
Whilst I have a pharmacy background, I’m not interested in just administering you a pill! In fact, it’s why I’ve moved away from pharmacy in recent years, so I can offer clients comprehensive solutions that empower them to look after their own health on many levels – body, mind and spirit. My vision is to provide a holistic solution to your health problems, not a quick fix from a bottle.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-mainstream medicine. There is definitely a place for it. I just prefer to help people via natural means if possible; helping before the presenting symptoms turn into big problems that you can only now manage is key. Diagnosing people and helping them in the early stages of ‘unwell’ can reduce the impact on their long-term health, not to mention our Medicare system!
I deal in wellness, doctors deal with disease.
After 10 stressful years of working long hours as a pharmacist I encountered my own health problems. It gave me a wonderful opportunity to practice the advice I had been giving out for so many years. But it only partially treated the symptoms and didn’t get to the real cause. So I decided to play around with the food I ate, my lifestyle habits and a few supplements. Great results! I wanted to find out more and here I am now….doing what I love and what works!
With the combination of pharmacy and naturopathy I am able to really listen to you and provide you with options, tools, plans and expectations for your needs.
I can help decipher the medical jargon and provide a mixed integrative approach, or deliver a totally natural one. You decide.
So let’s work together to transform any health issues you have. I am passionate about good nutrition and lifestyle. I love to inspire and tailor advice to the individual. I’ll help you feel better emotionally as well as physically and even share some of my tastiest recipes with you!
It makes all the difference in the world to your partner, your children, your parents and most importantly you, if your body and mind are functioning at their best.
