Natural Ways To Improve HealthView Our Services
Good health is an important part of feeling happy and motivated about life
If you are feeling ongoing:
- Fatigue and pain
- Anti-social behavious
- Inflammation and lack of movement
- Unmotivated and sluggish
- Increased anxiety and nervous tension
- Gut complaints
- Exhausted due to sleep disruptions
Then it is time to break the viscous cycle and get you feeling well again.
One of the underlying principles of naturopathic practice is the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal and attain better health. It can, therefore, be applied to almost all health conditions, acute and chronic, and to aid the prevention of disease.
If you have an existing condition requiring medication, natural remedies can still be beneficial, under professional guidance, to mitigate medication side effects, or used in ad-junction.
If you are ready to take control of your health, want to beat pain and improve the quality of your life then I would love to guide on this journey.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Drug-free pain relief and healing. The healing effects of low level laser therapy are truly remarkable.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries to stimulate cellular repair.
Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up. Light frequencies reduce pain and promote tissue healing. It is painless, safe, non-invasive and has no side effects.
LLLT has an anti-inflammatory and healing effect on inflamed tissue. By improving circulation and increasing cellular repair functions LLLT provides an environment for your body’s own natural healing process to be activated.
To sum up Low Level Laser Therapy
- Provides pain relief by treating the cause and alleviating the symptoms
- Accelerates healing, getting you back in action faster
- Reduces inflammation and swelling, meaning less discomfort after an injury
- Reduces reliance on pharmaceuticals (under medical supervision)
Naturopathy / Herbal Medicine

Nutrition plays an important role in virtually every medical condition. Good nutrition provides the building blocks for health. Assessing your nutritional status using pathology test results, deficiency signs and dietary intake is an important part of your treatment. Correcting nutritional imbalances is fundamental to the prevention and treatment of many common conditions.
Each day our bodies are challenged by excessive production of free radicals caused by our diet, polluted environment and stressful lifestyles.
Careful individualised prescribing is required since all humans are unique in terms of biochemistry, metabolism, anatomy and genetics. Our internal environment differs in gut flora, integrity of the intestinal wall and the immune system. All of these affect our ability to process foods, absorb nutrients and detoxify and expel wastes.
