What is Naturopathy?

mind, body, spirit, soul and you - balance or wellbeing concept - handwriting on colorful sticky notes against grained wood

Naturopathy is a complementary health profession with a focus on holistically treating you as an individual and addressing your health concerns. Sam will take your detailed case history and work towards identifying the underlying cause(s) of your ill health, rather than just treating your symptoms. One of the major philosophies of Naturopathic health care is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Conditions treated

Naturopath’s provide supportive treatment for a wide range of chronic and acute conditions including: fatigue, lack of energy, low mood, poor concentration, sleep issues, coughs, colds, sinus, hayfever, gastrointestinal problems such as IBS, Crohn’s, Fructose malabsorption, GORD, reproductive issues such as PMS, PCOS & endometriosis, weight loss, preconception care, diabetes, hypertension & high cholesterol.

Is it just me Melbourne or does anyone else have their happy tunes playing tonight?

I’ll still be working from home but the ability to move around, grab a meal and go to a few shops in a covid safe way is 💪

Since I can’t go home to Adelaide to visit the restaurant I’m really looking forward to trying the recipes in Parwana the cookbook this weekend.
Seems very much of the Ottolenghi middle eastern vibe if you’re into that with wonderful stories of Afghanistan’s history & culture.

🤞Here’s hoping we in Vic receive some good news today from the Premier.
I've a sense we won't be overly thrilled so I'm thinking about doing some baking later... and the ideas range from decadent melting moments through to healthy oat slice depending on how much TLC we need 🙂

How is everyone travelling!?

This past fortnight

• I've done a Thyrve gut test and I'm half excited half trepidatious to see how the coronadiet has impacted on my gut bugs.
I'm also keen to see how Thyrve’s testing panel compares to other tests. it's certainly cheaper than many available here but the support available with local tests like Microba is A1.

• I've watched David Attenborough’s A Life on our Planet like many other people.
I've been big proponent of the modified Mediterranean diet for a while and now I'm seeking out more regenerative agriculture products to lessen my impact.
It's expensive but hopefully offset by consuming less & enjoying more.
Let you know when my first delivery arrives.

• I’m scrambling to finish a fascinating & insanely in-depth nutrigenomics (the study of the effects of food and food constituents on gene expression) course.
I love that it's independent of any companies test so that I can continue to review raw data v being shackled to one test.
Manuka is in a teach out mode pract friends so unfortunately not available in this in depth mode anymore

• I've been gifted a newer iWatch (thank you so much friends!) and it's sheer lightness (aluminium v stainless steel) and longer battery time has me recording more workouts & getting back on the 🚴🏻‍♀️

•I’ve been listening to Tame Impala’s new album & it's so effortless cool it's easy imaging I'm in a rooftop bar, sans mask (oh it’s a glorious feeling - give it a go!)

Enjoy your Sunday - no matter what 😷

My #covidart collection is growing. Because, home & looking at the walls 😁

This is ’Nothing Lasts’ from Felicity Chiao. She has also described it as ’intrusive thoughts’ which gave it an extra nuance at this time.

It's a reasonably cheap print on Society 6.

Art & aesthetic experience may improve mood and overall wellbeing and here's a nice article on some reasons why
