My emphasis is on preventative health-care; as a nurse in the clinical hospital settings for a few decades I saw all too often the extension of life (in years) without any consideration of the quality of that life. I also saw all too often that many patients suffered from preventable conditions and were prescribed numerous medications for these conditions, without any discussion or guidance regarding restoring health with diet and with simple cleansing practises.
I use a number of clinical tools in my consultations including Quadscan, which is a scientifically validated bio-electrical impedance analysis (BIA) device that allows us to assess information from your inner-world: cellular health, hydration levels, body composition and overall health status. The Quadscan is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approved as a medical device.
BIA with the Quadscan is included in all naturopathic consultations and you’ll receive a report of findings with each visit that allows you to monitor your progress – so that you can see how your health is progressing. The findings often validate the clinical signs and symptoms that are experienced, which is really an important supportive tool for my patients that are re-writing and restoring a long history of chronic diseases such as Lyme & Co-infections, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and a myriad of auto-immune conditions, generally it will take time to restore wellness as we unravel the underlying causes and make corrections to body functions.
Overall, I believe in finding out what is the best way forward for all of my patients, I listen to your needs and desires and this is the underpinning priority when a treatment plan is created, along with information from the BIA and our findings from our consultations or further testings. My broad-range of experience is derived from treating patients in both the medical and natural setting.
