Larissa McBride is a naturopath and clinical nutritionist.
Larissa challenges her patients to adopt an integrative approach to their health and wellbeing. Larissa utilises the following modalities:
Clinical nutrition: All of the functions and structures of the body rely upon nutrition. Food is medicine. It is as simple as that. Therapeutic foods are utilised to heal and restore the body to health.
Nutritional supplementation: Some people require additional nutrients for normal functioning of their bodily processes. Different stages or circumstances of life (e.g. pregnancy, sport, illness) demand greater levels of nutrients for optimal functioning.
Herbal medicine: Herbal medicine involves the use of medicinal plants. Herbal medicine may be administered in the form of extraction in tincture or diffusion in herbal tea.
Lifestyle advice: Naturopathy is wholistic medicine. This means that every aspect of your life is important. Lifestyle factors critical for better health include sleep/rest, stress reduction activities, creative outlets, connection with human beings, energy work (yoga, Qigong, tai chi), spiritual practice (meditation, prayer, gratitude) and exercise.
