Naturopathy can help



Naturopathy

The healing power of nature is at the core of Naturopathy.

...Naturopathy is an extremely comprehensive way of treating illness, ill-health and disease. Naturopathy looks at the interconnectedness between illness and impaired functioning of the body. Every illness has an underlying cause and Naturopathy aims to find and remove these causes.

...Dietary advice, nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, exercise and lifestyle recommendations are provided to give your body the building blocks for optimal health, wellness and healing. The use of natural medicine has the effect of enhancing your bodys own healing mechanisms and helps to prevent further illness and disease.

...In addition, I also use valuable screening tools such as Live Blood Analysis and Bioimpedance Analysis, DNA Profiling, Hair Mineral Analysis, Iridology, Urinary Indicans testing, ph testing, allergy testing, saliva and urine testing. These tests, in conjunction with functional medicine, help me to gain as much information about how your body is functioning and how well it is dealing with your diet and lifestyle.




Nutrition

Food is medicine

...Diet is a very important part of health care, illness treatment and disease prevention. Nutrient deficiencies can lead to ill-health, as can impaired digestion, chronic inflammation and toxicity in the body.
...Over 70% of all deaths in modern western societies are linked to diet, particularly high levels of fat, sugar and salt. Diabetes, hypoglycaemia, hypertension, heart disease, colon cancer, obesity, angina, atherosclerosis, gallbladder disease, arthritis, kidney disease, liver damage, hyperactivity and migraine can all be to linked to dietary deficiencies and improper nutrition.

...The average western diet is deficient in protein, vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients, essential fatty acids, fibre and water. Conversely it is excessively high in salt, sugar, artificial flavourings, colourings, preservatives, saturated fat and trans fats. This imbalance and the incorrect type of foods can cause faulty development of cells, which in turn can result in the malfunctioning of specific organs and eventually lead to disease.

...Good nutrition helps people to remain healthy. Food is medicine and can be used to treat and prevent illness, disease and degenerative conditions.



Western Herbal Medicine

Mother Nature is the oldest and greatest pharmacist and the source of major and minor health miracles.

...Herbs are a living medicine! They contain many therapeutic compounds that exert a positive physiological effect on the functioning of the human body. Herbs can correct the underlying causes of ill-health while treating the uncomfortable signs and symptoms of illness and disease.

...Herbs have been used as medicine, by all cultures, for many centuries. Herbal medicine has a long, proven history which provides a perfect complementary form of medicine. Herbs are a mini laboratory in themselves and contain therapeutic compounds that we can use for food and medicine. These therapeutic compounds work within the body to promote healing, health and wellness.

...Herbs can be dispensed in teas, tinctures, decoctions, capsules, tablets, oils, creams, ointments and salves. They can be used as preventative medicine to keep you from getting sick and as therapeutic medicine to help you recover from illness.



Functional Medicine

...focuses on biochemical individuality. Laboratory testing and screening tools can pinpoint even slight imbalances in your biochemistry. These imbalances can lead to suboptimal health, chronic illness and degenerative disease.

...Functional pathology tests provide essential information to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and management of health care issues using an wholistic approach to health. Functional pathology testing also allows for the establishment of a baseline result that can be used to monitor your progress and treatment efficacy.

...When necessary I use any of the following tests to gain valuable information about the health and functioning of your body.
  • DNA profiling
  • Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA)
  • Hair Mineral Analysis
  • Blood glucose test
  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Blood type test
  • Breath testing
  • Candida testing
  • Cholesterol test
  • Coeliac test
  • Food Sensitivity test
  • Gastrointestinal Tract testing
  • Helicobacter Pylori testing
  • Hormone testing
  • Lactose Intolerance test
  • Pathology testing
  • Thyroid test
  • Tongue and Nail Diagnosis
  • Urinary pH and Indicans testing
  • Zinc Tally test



What is your DNA telling you?

...Understanding your own unique DNA profile is the single most powerful tool to enhancing your personal health, fitness, energy and vitality. Inherited genes cant be changed but we can change their effect on our health, vitality and ageing.

...Personalised Genetic Profiling analyses 40 genes that directly influence health, fitness and nutrition. Genes tested include markers of cardiovascular health, fat metabolism, inflammation, immunity, bone health, taste, detoxification and cellular defence.

...Personalised genetic profiling allows you to make the right nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices. It helps optimize repair of DNA damage and improves the function of your genes. Importantly, many chronic diseases can be prevented by listening to and acting upon the messages you receive from your DNA.



Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA)

...was originally developed to monitor patients after surgery and gives a valuable insight into your bodys health and its response to diet and lifestyle choices. BIA gives an accurate measure of toxicity, inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration, cellular health and function, cellular ageing, body composition, fat mass, active tissue mass and fluid balance.

...Results of BIA enable nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to be provided that are specific for your health care needs, giving your body the building blocks for optimal health and healing.

...Vitality, Longevity and Healthy Ageing programs can be used in conjunction with BIA to monitor weight management and healthy ageing, improve energy levels, increase muscle tone and fitness and support nutrition and health in the body.



Hair Mineral Analysis (HMA)

...offers an accurate measurement of the concentration of minerals in the body. A small amount of hair is taken from the nape of the neck and analysed. This test provides a reading of the minerals deposited in the cells and interstitial spaces of the hair over a 2-3 month period. This reading correlates to mineral concentrations in the internal organs of the body.

...Hair mineral analysis (HMA) can detect whether there is an excess or deficiency of vital nutrient minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. Conversely, it can also identify over-exposure to toxic metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminium.

...Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses. Conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children can all result from mineral deficiencies and toxic metal accumulations in the body.

...HMA therefore makes it possible to identify and treat a range of nutritional deficiencies well before health problems become serious. Treatment programs can be designed and implemented and follow up hair analyses can be compared with the initial results to learn the effectiveness of the treatment.



Iridology

...is the art and science of analysing the colour and structure of the iris of the eye to gain valuable insight into the health and condition of the body and identify inherent areas of weakness.

... The irides of the eye are made up of thousands of nerve fibres that represent different parts of the body. Signs and markings in the iris can indicate irritations, inflammations and changes in the body tissues. The benefit of Iridology is that often conditions may be indicated and observed in the irides before clinical symptoms appear in the body. Thus treatment can begin before the problem becomes a major illness or disorder.

About Kathryn

My studies in health care began in 1987 when I commenced Nursing. I worked both in paediatric and adult nursing. Paediatric nursing showed me how the body can heal when there is no emotional attachment to a Diagnosis. Children do not know how a person with illness is meant to behave. They go with how they are feeling and look forward to the things in life that make them happy. Thus began my journey into Natural Medicine.

I am happily married and have two young children. I have a keen interest in all things related to health. I regularly attend Natural Medicine conferences and seminars to keep up to date with the latest cutting edge research.

I look forward to finding out how Natural Medicine can help you.
