Are you new to Naturopathy?
Naturopathy takes a holistic approach to medicine and wellness. This means that as a Naturopath I aim to try and get the full picture of what is really happening within the body in order to get to the underlying causes behind why you may be suffering from health issues.
Principles of Naturopathy
- First do no harm
- Treating the person as a whole
- Addressing the underlying cause
- The healing power of nature
- Health education
- Prevention is key
In clinic I can use various tools to get you back on track such as:
- Herbal medicine
- Clinical nutrition
- Dietary modifications
- Lifestyle modifications
My Approach To Naturopathy
I take an evidence-based approach when devising treatment plans for clients who may have either acute or chronic conditions and I only prescribe products and ingredients that have been researched to be of high quality and therapeutically effective to help my clients reach their health goals.
Individuality is the foundation of Naturopathy
I believe that because everyone is an individual, medicine should be too. This is why every one of my clients are assessed and treated on an individual basis.
The treatment plan that I would put together for you takes into consideration your situation and is specific to you.
Naturopathy also works well alongside other health care arrangements that you may already have, so you can easily grow your team of health professionals who can help support you.
We are all in this together
I firmly believe that by having a network of health practitioners by your side, you’ll be able to smash your health goals out of the park (which is why I named the business Cairns COMPLEMENTARY Health!).
So if you’re currently taking prescription medication, or following another allied health professional’s treatment plan, like pain management for example, I can work alongside your current treatments and I will make sure that there’s no interactions or negative effects with what they prescribe.
I share the same goals as you and your other healthcare professionals – making YOU happier and healthier.
My aim is to provide you with the best quality care and advice.
In order to do that the appointment structure is so we can get as much information as possible and it also allows me time to be able to accurately prescribe dietary and lifestyle changes and supplements if necessary.

Initial consultation (1 hour)
This is basically a fact-finding mission to get as much information around your health and all the aspects that impact it.
I will not only ask you the reason you’ve come, but also ask questions about your other body systems to gain a broader, holistic view of your current health state.
Typically, most people will leave this appointment with some dietary directions, and if necessary, herbal or nutritional supplements.
I may also refer you to have some blood tests to gain a deeper picture of what is going on and address any underlying nutritional deficiencies or hormonal imbalances. This may ideally need to be completed before your second consultation (Report of findings) which will be held 1-2 weeks after your initial appointment.
Second consultation – Report of Findings (30 minutes)
This consultation is held ideally 1-2 weeks following your initial consultation.
At this consultation you will receive your treatment plans that I have put together after going through all the information from your initial, as well as incorporating action plans based on your blood test results (if applicable).
Here you will receive:
- Your treatment plan to help achieve your health goals,
- Your Iridology report and photos of your eyes, as well as
- Any dietary information, lifestyle suggestions and other information that I feel you would benefit from.
We will discuss which steps would be the best for you to take to get you back on track and feeling better and also select the options that you feel would be the most manageable.
Follow up consultations
Follow up appointments time and frequency vary greatly from person to person. Depending on the agreed treatment plans, a person’s financial situation and life in general! – I try to be as flexible as possible to help support you!
