Digestive Health

Our digestive system, gut, GIT – Gastro-Intestinal Tract, includes everything from the mouth right through to the anus. Considering most of us eat 3 solid meals a day, up to 3 snacks, 1.5ltr of water plus a few coffees with a total of almost 60+ ingredients, it’s not surprising that at one stage or other things haven’t felt quite right.

If however, a digestive complaint is reoccurring maybe it’s time to make an appointment. A tailored treatment plan is easy to follow and implement and you can expect long-lasting positive changes.


Bloating, constipation, diarrhea, bad breath, and stomach pain are not uncommon. At one stage or another, most people have experienced these. Although common when it is occurring often it is unusual and often an indication something is amiss with the digestive system.

Often by taking a thorough case history, looking at your diet and lifestyle choices, it is often quite clear what is going on.  A treatment plan is made for you and improvements are generally quick, with changes occurring in as little as 5 days.


With allergies and intolerances on the rise, it is becoming more and more common in clinic patients having some degree of food intolerance, from the classic wheat and dairy to now fruits, grains and a wide variety of other foods.

By utilising the more current scientific pathology tests, by a simple blood sample, complete food groups can be checked and assessed for the level of intolerance this coupled with a thorough Naturopathy plan to repair the GUT and desensitize an overactive immune system long-lasting changes can be noted.


Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is marked by the abnormal function of the colon; abnormal motility, pain, diarrhea, constipation/hard stools and increased production of mucus. IBS had a large component linked to the brain and serotonin.

Treatment is more than just symptomatic relief of digestive complaints. But also addressing and treating the person holistically. IBS-like many digestive complaints respond well to Naturopathy, herbal and nutritional treatment. With numerous digestive tests available, direct and specific diet changes alongside Naturopathy can give long-lasting positive results.


Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease (IBD) has a strong genetic component with chronic and painful symptoms. Patients can find the disease debilitating to live with, having an enormous impact on their physical and mental health as well as an effect on their social lives. Most patients come into the clinic already heavily medicated. This doesn’t mean Naturopathy can’t help.

Having treated numerous cases of IBD, looking at it from a holistic angle, utilising functional pathology tests and assessing all areas of health, patients have noted huge lasting improvements in quality of life and reduction in symptoms.

  • My heart goes out to all Australians facing devastating fires. If you can help, donate to the Red Cross, RFS or WIRES.
  • What a year, farewell 2019, looking forward to all good things in 2020 🥳 Happy New Year!
  • My poor lungs...! Ugh I’m still sick. 
So the next solution (I forgot all these magical remedies when I’m sick) is 3 or 4 garlic cloves, crushed and infused in oil. Olive or coconut oil will do. 
Rub the oil on the soles of the feet and wrap them up in socks. An oldie but a goodie 🧙🏼‍♀️

  • 🙋🏼‍♀️ my next few weeks. Today’s my last day in the clinic until the New Year. 
It’s been... different to return to work after having a little baby! It’s been stressful - does my brain still work?! Wonderful - being back in my element and helping people. Challenging - getting my work mojo back, sticking to times and pumping milk between clients.

But it’s been so good to be back and helping people get healthy!

I’ll be taking some time off, resting, playing and having family time to return January 13
Looking forward to 2020 ❣️ #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticwellness #balance #naturopath #wellnessclinic #holisticlifestyle #healthmatters #wellnessjourney #mindbodyspirit
  • 🥦🥒🥬🍏🥝🥬🥒
Greens are a great for detoxing, reducing inflammation and supporting healthy digestion. 
Leafy green vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet. Leafy greens including kale, spinach, arugula, and chard are the undeniable superstars of the food world. Low in calories, yet high in fiber, vitamins, and phytonutrients, greens are incredible for your health in more ways than you would even suspect.

Whether in whole food form, smoothies, or organic greens powders, greens have the power to make you look and feel younger, and can even support healthy aging. 🥦Improve Inflammatory Response
Though this may be a no-brainer, I want to re-emphasize how important it is to support a healthy inflammatory response in order to protect yourself from a battery of chronic illnesses. Leafy greens contain antioxidants and polyphenols, the disease-fighting compounds found in plant foods. 🥬Greens are expert detoxifiers, thanks to chlorophyll–the pigment that makes greens…green! Chlorophyll-rich foods such as spirulina, chlorella, parsley, and alfalfa bind to heavy metals and toxins in your blood and carry them out of your body. Chlorophyll also helps cleanse your liver to support your body’s natural ability to detox.  #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holistichealth #healthmatters #acne #clearskin #skin #fitlife #wellness #nutrition #health #acntreatment #skinhealth #iamwellandgood #mindbodygreen #mindfulliving #holisticlifestyle #intuitiveliving #mindbodyspirit #holisticmedicine #naturalhealth #healthyhappylife #greenlifestyle #organiclifestyle #pimple #pimleprevention #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
  • Clay the emergency fix 🚨 for angry breakouts 
Christmas time often equates to later nights, alcohol and diets that are a little off track. It only happens once a year so let’s not feel too guilty. 
But what to do when giant mountainous eruptions break through!?
1) relax
2) ensure you are hydrated 
3) keep up the fiber to get things moving 
4) topical green clay to draw out, reduce inflammation and speed up healing 
5) moisturize with lavender and frankincense in a carrier cream

White clay is all I has :/ Benefits of Green Clay💚
For oily, combination and acne-prone skin, Green Clay is ideal for restoring balance. Green Clay works overtime to soak up the excess oils that clog the pores and lead to acne and imperfections, plus it doubles as a powerful deep cleanser that helps to balance pH levels. One of my favourite qualities of Green Clay is that it stimulates cell regeneration to leave you with a seriously glowing complexion.  #cleanliving #greenlifestyle #healthmatters #healthyhappylife #holistichealth #holisticlifestyle #holisticliving #holisticmedicine #acne #clearskin #skin #pimple #pimleprevention #foodforhealth #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
