What is Naturopathy?
The merging of current evidence-based science with traditional wisdom.
An holistic approach to health, recognising that physical, mental, and spiritual health are interconnected.
Targeting the underlying cause, not just treating the symptoms.
Using diet, lifestyle changes, nutrition and herbal medicine to create a balanced, healthy being.
Helping you understand your own body and take back control of your health.
Your body knows what to do, it has mechanisms in place to work perfectly. It is not your enemy. Any symptom is a sign, so what is your body trying to tell you?
What I can help with
Whilst I treat a large array of health conditions, I am ultimately treating you. Your genetics, your experiences, your lifestyle, your thought patterns, have all contributed to a unique version of you.
Whatever symptoms your current imbalances are presenting as, I create a personalised treatment plan for you.
Some of those symptoms may include:
I started seeing improvements within a matter of weeks with Leila; her work has strengthened my various systems and significantly reduced several ailments. Her education has also given me a sense of autonomy that I appreciate, and her innate understanding and kindness has always made me feel heard and supported - Emily, VIC
What to expect
I'll send you an intake form to complete prior to our meeting where you can upload any previous test results, and list any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
We'll discuss your specific goals for your health. I'll take your case history: current symptoms and your health history. We'll look at all body systems because they're all interconnected. We'll also discuss your current eating and lifestyle habits.
My focus is to find the underlying cause of what is going on for you. When we know where it started, we can address the root issue to make sure it doesn't return.
I particularly recognise the powerful role of emotions and environment in creating either disease or wellness. We look at your causes of mental and physical stress, and any limiting beliefs that might be preventing your healing.
We'll discuss any further investigations that might be indicated. There are a variety of testing options available to help us discover the cause of your symptoms.
You may be able to have some via your GP, I also often use functional pathology testing to look deeper at the workings of the body such as microbiome, digestive function, and hormones. These tests help us identify a more direct route to your wellbeing, saving us time and saving you money.
We'll discuss a manageable treatment strategy, and after the consult I will email you our agreed personalised prescription. This might involve very high quality practitioner-only supplements including evidence-based nutritional and herbal medicine. These are often short term plans to bring your body back to the balance it innately knows.
We also discuss the things you can do to maintain that balance long term - diet therapy and lifestyle changes including mindfulness practices to create coherence in your body.
As a qualified remedial massage therapist and reiki practitioner, I incorporate these tools as needed to provide a greater holistic approach. Reiki is a powerful tool to deepen the healing processes, providing you with a chance to quieten the analytical mind, tune in to your true needs, and deeply relax. I'll teach you how to access this yourself, too.
We'll likely reschedule for 2 - 6 weeks time, depending on what is required for you. Some conditions are quick to resolve, and others need more time and attention. My ultimate goal is that eventually you won't need me anymore!
I keep up to date by doing frequent webinars and seminars. I continually do thorough research on each of my clients to ensure we are on the right path for them.
Sound good? Let's get started.
After every appointment Leila would always send a recap email with my prescription for the weeks ahead so nothing was forgotten - I still go back and refer to them now.
