Brisbane Naturopath and Clinical Nutritionist
(MTech (HOM), Adv Dip (Nat, Nut))
My Purpose is to Help You through Natural Medicine
As soon as I face my first patient of the day and the communication starts flowing between us, and I start gathering information about the case, I feel that I'm doing what I'm meant to do in my professional life. I have witnessed so much positive change and success with the use of natural medicine and the modalities I've studied. This drives my passion for helping and educating others. When I work with you, it's a partnership, as we journey together on your pathway to improving your health and wellbeing with the choices you make, so you can live the life you truly desire.
Why Natural Medicine?
My passion for healing and helping people with health-related issues was stirred at an early age through my grandmother’s love for natural medicine. My grandmother had a store on their farm in rural South Africa to aid local families and farmworkers with their common ailments. As a child, my parents would take me to a naturopath/homeopath who took particular care in explaining how the body can heal itself and how assisting and promoting this natural healing process was the basis of naturopathy.
Supporting the body to heal itself and optimising your health so that you can have a quality and healthy longevity/healthspan, has always resonated with me.
Becoming a Qualified Naturopath
I completed my Master's Degree in Health Science (Homeopathy). My extensive clinical practice started after my graduation in 1999 when I started a small practice that gradually built up over 12 years to become a successful business. I was able to practice as a primary care physician in South Africa which helped me to gain valuable insight and experience with a range of diseases, from common ailments to more complicated multi-faceted conditions, where I would also collaborate or provide referrals to specialist physicians if necessary.
Committed to being at the forefront of Natural Medicine
In addition to my Master's degree qualifications, I continued my further education and have qualifications in Iridology (NDip Irid, Germany), Compounding and Dispensing, and Integrative Medicine (South African Integrated Medicine Fellowship). I've also completed my Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy, Nutrition, and Herbal Medicine in Australia.
My Commitment to You
I take a detailed case history during our consultation to form a holistic view of your lifestyle, diet and exercise. The presented ailments, goals and gathered facts are then assessed to develop a suitable and effective treatment plan. Further exploration, whether it is scientific testing or in-depth research will guide me to get to the root cause of your concern. Treating the root cause is ultimately the most sensible and efficient way to optimal health.
