What to expect at your
first consult?

An initial consultation is like a detailed health consultation where you will be asked about your current concerns, health priorities, health history, family history, and your daily nutrition.

Before your appointment, we ask that you prepare a list of all current supplements and medications (names and doses). If you’re unsure, just bring the products.

Typically, we test to investigate and/or uncover the root cause of your health concerns. Your treatment is personalised to your needs and your unique health journey.

Depending on your diagnosis, our holistic care may involve nutritional and lifestyle suggestions, nutritional supplements, and/or herbal medicine that work together to heal from the inside out.

The Adrenocortex hormone profile is a non-invasive saliva test that serves as a reliable marker of stress response and a critical tool for revealing adrenal imbalances. Lifestyle, physical and psychological stresses put constant demands on the adrenal glands. If they become depleted adrenal fatigue or insufficiency may be experienced.

Each person has two adrenal glands both located on top of each of the body’s two kidneys. These glands are important to the body’s endocrine (hormonal) system. Adrenal fatigue is a very common condition in today’s society through the physical and physiological demands we put on our adrenal glands. 

Salivary cortisol testing is an effective non-invasive salivary hormone test that evaluates bioactive levels of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA.

This hormone test (stress test) serves as a critical tool for uncovering:

  • Biochemical imbalances
  • Underlying anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Obesity
  • Dysglycemia,
  • and a host of other clinical conditions that may affect our day-to-day lives.

This hormone test examines 4 saliva samples over a 12-hour period for levels of cortisol and DHEA. 

Test approximate cost $80 + $20 express postage

Frequently Asked Questions

A follow-up consultation is recommended two to four weeks after your initial consultation to review the treatment protocol. Dosages may need to be increased or decreased and reviewed.

Please note from 1 April 2019, as part of the Australian government reforms, unfortunately all health insurers no longer pay benefits towards Naturopathy.

Naturopaths are trained in drug/herb/nutrient interactions and will not recommend supplements which interact with medications. It is essential to disclose all medications and existing supplements during your consultation.

You are welcome to bring a partner or friend if you need support. Please bear in mind I will be asking questions about your symptoms, health history and mental, physical and emotional health. If you need to bring children, please bring something to keep them occupied in the clinic room with you.

This is a common question and it all depends on the person, the severity of the health problem and duration of the illness and symptoms.

Natural therapies and nutritional changes may not always provide instant results as it can take two to four months for the body to turn over a new cycle of stronger, healthier cells.

However, many people notice improvements in energy, digestion, immune responses and reduction in pain after seven days.

Compliance is essential and it’s not just a matter of taking a supplement as a quick fix. Lifestyle and nutritional changes are an essential part of well-being and the healing process.
