Unique, sustainable, natural healthcare
Welcome to Health in Harmony and a natural approach to restoring health and wellness
Whether you wish to address an existing health issue or simply improve your quality of life, I can offer an affordable approach to suit your specific needs.
Why Natural Medicine?
Modern-day living, and the unavoidable exposure we have to everyday environmental stressors, create or contribute to an array of health conditions - many of them chronic. These conditions commonly involve a variety of typical symptoms such as:
- Sleep problems
- Digestive disorders
- Lowered immunity - frequent infections
- Hormonal disruption
- Mood swings/depression
- Weight gain
- Skin complaints
- Allergies and food intolerances
- High cholesterol/blood pressure
- Toxicity and liver damage
- Raised blood glucose
Often we take these symptoms for granted and continue to put up with them on a day-to-day basis, or we seek mainstream medical advice and take prescribed medications to manage symptoms. This approach does not address the root cause, and this often results in continued medication use for symptom management.
It doesn’t have to be this way
Using natural and sustainable methods of assessment and treatment, and with your commitment to this natural approach, these symptoms, and many chronic and debilitating health conditions, can be addressed.
As a natural medicine practitioner my approach is simple, straightforward and thorough: I aim to identify the root cause of a complaint and provide appropriate and sustainable treatment, together with tools to enable you to manage and maintain this approach. Optimising health and well-being, and enabling a better quality of life, is the focus and purpose of my work.
Informal discussion, coupled with simple clear questioning about symptoms, past and current health, lifestyle factors and medications, provides thorough information with which I can formulate treatment options to suit your needs.
I treat holistically, believing chronic ill health is attributed in some way to lifestyle factors. We typically encounter many modern day physical, emotional and environmental stressors, which impact negatively on our day-to-day health. Over time this accumulates and illness develops. It is possible to redress this with the correct approach and restore balance and wellness.
My Testing and Treatment Methods
I practice using a variety of treatment modalities and testing methods, focussing on individual client needs to determine the most suitable approach in each case.
In-clinic and other testing methods support health assessment and these usually provide useful data for targeted treatment. Testing services can be arranged prior to the consultation or discussed in-clinic to determine relevance and gain a better understanding of what to expect.
Treatment methods include nutritional medicine, diet and lifestyle tailoring, herbal medicine, homeopathy and homeobotanical formulas. Detoxification and healthy ageing protocols can also form an integral part of your treatment plan. Treatment is always individualised and targeted specifically to client needs. The healing process involves you, the client, as well as myself, with communication and compliance a key part of the process.
My passion for natural medicine and a healthier lifestyle approach was borne out of my own experience of a life-threatening illness in 2001. Odd as it may seem, I am thankful, every day, for that episode of my life and the changes it inspired in me.
My interest in using everyday foods, homeopathy and herbs to improve health and well-being prompted me to learn more and become a qualified practitioner.
I have been using natural medicine in different forms for many years now, and have seen countless people experience positive changes in their health and quality of life.
