What is involved once you have completed the initial consultation questionnaire?

After thoroughly going through your answers, either via Skype, Email or Phone, Julie will continue to discuss these with you, identifying where to begin with your treatment plan. This may include a number of supportive elements, ranging from herbal & homeopathic medication, nutrition, dietary changes and counselling, giving you a full explanation of the difference between how pharmaceutical medications work within your body in comparison to herbal and homeopathic medicine, food and food supplements.

If you are having challenges with life circumstances or want to eliminate negative habits, Julie will guide you through making positive changes and organizing coaching and strategies that will best support you.

What naturopathic treatments and protocol is based on – Getting to know you

This gives Julie the much-needed information to make your individual herbal and homeopathic medicine, which will specifically help treat your condition and also the underlying causative factors. Your emotions and life choices can either have a positive or destructive effect on your health. It is vital for you to acknowledge this and it'll work through for you to become completely well. The reason for your intense Initial Questionnaire is to give Julie a complete understanding of your health concerns and underlying causative factors. This is far more accurate than any test that will be given.

Why tests aren’t accurate? Let’s take the allergy test, for example. Whatever it is that you may be allergic too, it will not be just one thing or one food. It might be a myriad of things, such as chemicals, that have built up in your body and that your body is reacting to. Over the years, I have found that the best way to tackle this is by following a detoxification process and building up your immune system. This is far more effective, both in the short term and long term, than the process of testing, as there are too many variables.

Optimal Health and Healing are the Prime Focus in Naturopathic Medicine!

For optimal health and healing, it is vital to have consideration of YOU as a person: Not as some labelled health condition. Labelling is so BAD, because there are just so many variables with every condition that there can NEVER be just one treatment fits all. Also, there may be several variable factors to consider as the best way to support your body back to health.

As your body heals from your initial symptoms, it is necessary to alter treatments and to look into how you can improve lifestyle habits, stress, anxiety, and nutrition. The foods that you are eating can heal any emotional pain or trauma.

This is what is known as the holistic practice of natural medicine. Therapies and treatments are very focused on individually prescribed herbal and/or homoeopathic medicine due to the fact that you are unique as are the cause or causes of your health concerns. For example: Hypertension (high blood pressure) may have a variety of base causative factors such as: Stress, hormone changes, diet, lack of exercise or mobility, and these are just a couple of examples. These would need to be treated differently.

The best diagnosis is achieved with by talking and the questions that you have answered in your initial questionnaire. Also bodily signs, tongue and nails give accurate indications to inner health problems that are occurring.

Mindful Nutrition – Making the Food You Eat, Your Best Friend and Not Your Worst Enemy.

Nutrition is the foundational building block to your health. It is important to know if your diet is nutritionally balanced. Know if each food suits your needs and if you are digesting your food properly. If your digestion is poor, then you will not be absorbing the nutrients effectively from the foods that you are eating. Therefore, even taking nutritional supplements will not help you until your digestive issues are solved.

  • Is it allergic reactions to certain foods or is it the chemicals that are being added to foods? Is tampering with whole foods causing allergic reactions? Food allergies can also be caused by a suppressed immune system. This all needs to be taken into consideration and cannot be successfully detected, even with food allergy testing.
  • Changing the food you eat to improve your health and prevent disease: Over the years I found that the best way of helping my clients to become well is by supporting them with improvement in the foods they eat each and every day. This is empowering you to take charge of your health and life. It doesn't add any extra cost to your budget because each person has to eat, therefore it is just changing the food that you spend your money on to eat. Once people become focused on buying healthy food, they lose interest and find that they don’t want to spend their money on unhealthy foods.

Life coaching and cognitive counselling – Finding balance in life and the courage to do the things you want to do. This can be rather tricky – getting the mind and body to work in unison to bring about balance, optimal health and fulfilling your life’s dreams. This is my core desire for you.

There can be underlying emotional, traumatic circumstances that are causative triggers to your health problems. By bringing together balance and harmony to your mind and nervous system. This will support your body physically and mentally with healing. Allowing you to have the strength and commitment needed to bring about your healthy life changes.

Medication Identification and Effects

A major part of my role as a Naturopathic Practitioner is having an in-depth knowledge of the various medications and their side effects. These side effects cause an imbalance and sometimes damage to other areas of your body. It is important that when working through your health concerns to verify any of the symptoms and causative factors in relation to the medication that you are taking. 

It is also important before prescribing any herbal or nutritional support to understand any interactions that may occur due to the medication that you are taking.

Herbal and Homoeopathic Dispensary

Herbal and homoeopathic medicine still provide the most successful support to healing your body. I have an extensive herbal and homeopathic dispensary, your specific herbal and/or homeopathic formulas are made and dispensed at the time of your consultation.

All herbal and homoeopathic medicines and supplements that I prescribe are Australian sourced and manufactured for their efficacy and safety.

They are manufactured with the best quality assurance under pharmaceutical standards throughout the world.
