How I work as a Naturopath

Naturopathy isn’t just my profession it is what I love and how I like to live.

Being more a realist than a purist, I practice what I preach, and I truly believe that with everything the key is balance! Start your day with a green smoothie and end your week with a glass of your favourite. I take my herbs, exercise, stretch, smile, and enjoy chocolate, yes you can have both! You can have a healthy life that also considers what makes you happy.

One chocolate won’t make you unhealthy and one salad won’t make you healthy

it’s what you do most of the time that matters. I believe people can balance the finer things in life and still live with zest and energy. So, this is what my clients can expect; well-rounded advice and ideas to ensure they can create the healthy life they desire that suits them and fits into their lifestyle.

My aim is to educate, empower, inspire and motivate you.

Treatment doesn’t simply treat the manifestation of a disease and its effects but rather search for the cause and address it. I enable my patients to understand their condition and to choose solutions and take positive actions that add vitality, happiness, and optimal health to their lives and the lives of others.

My story.

Welcome, it’s great you’ve dropped by! My name is Lindsay, and I am a degree qualified Naturopath,  I help women with PCOS have symptom free, pain free, regular periods while maintaining a healthy weight. I help women achieve clear skin from acne or post-pill acne.

So how did I get here?

Graduating in my 20’s I was so focused on everyone else’s health I neglected my own. I had acne occurring on the lower part of my face. Painful cystic acne, some days my skin would be so inflamed I would often put ice packs on my face to calm it down. My periods were MIA, maybe they would come, maybe I wouldn’t see them for six+ months. They were so heavy I would flood through pads and tampons. I worked such big hours I would fuel myself on empty white calories, I was struggling big time to maintain a healthy weight.
I couldn’t break the cycle of breakouts, carbs, weight fluctuations or regulate my period.

My 30th birthday was on the horizon, the time had come to take a deeper look into my health. I was ready to focus on my health. I went to my GP for a check-up, I got my bloods done and an ultrasound. The sonographer casually mentioned my ovaries looked like a bunch of grapes. Pleasant.

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2012. My GP’s solution, the pill, metformin and doxycycline.
No. I am a Naturopath I knew I could support my body back to balance.
So I used my tools to get my health back on track.

I kept a food diary, I kept a period log, I started taking liquid herbs and supplements every dam day. I found an exercise I loved that didn’t feel like a chore. I decluttered my life, work, space and people. I put myself first… you can’t pour from an empty cup. Low and behold I got better, after 6 months I now had a 29-day menstrual cycle. I had pain free periods. I lost 30kg. My skin cleared up. I slept well and I felt happy.

What I learnt
– Health takes time
– Health happens when you are ready
– Health is about balance, mind body and soul
