USING NATURE TO REBALANCE AND HEAL
How is natural medicine different?
The human body is remarkably designed. It has the ability to heal and rebalance itself if given the proper tools and environment. Naturopaths seek to help the body to heal itself, by identifying imbalances and barriers to healing, and correcting these using natural, low side-effect treatments like dietary modification, nutritional supplementation and herbal medicine. Unlike some other forms of medicine, the goal of naturopathy is to identify and treat the cause of the health problem, rather than just ameliorating the presenting symptoms, and to make changes that enable a true restoration of health that improves quality of life.
Private Health Provider Status
'Thanks' to the federal government's private health insurance reforms, from April 1, health funds are no longer able to provide cover for a range of natural therapies, including naturopathy. This decision is undergoing a review, but for the time being, naturopathy is not covered.
Thankfully, I also have separate qualifications in nutrition, and this is a service that some health funds will provide cover for. Check your policy with your fund, but you may be able to get cover through HBF, Medibank Private, AHM, NIB and a few other minor funds.

Happy new year!
I am back to consulting again, and I am taking appointments for Wednesdays and Saturday mornings from my home clinic (55 Oakover Way, Gosnells). Thank you to all of my clients who have patiently waited for me to be ready to get return to work. If you have any health complaints that I can help you with, I'd love to hear from you :)
Maternity leave 2018 and return to work plans
1st July 2018
On the 22nd June, little Zemirah
Eve joined our family. She is
absolutely beautiful and I'm
loving having the time off to
look after her and my other two
As a result I am taking the rest
of 2018 off as maternity leave.
At this stage the plan is to return to work at the beginning of 2019, assuming everyone is well. I'm happy to continue to supply supplements to my existing clients, but for consultations, or for new patients seeking help, I highly recommend my colleague, Helen Maynier (0421 465 499).
Looking forward to being able to help you all next year!
