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.

That precontemplation moment where you commit to going for a walk after your cuppa tea (because there is no combining tea drinking & mask-wearing atm 😕) and matching part of your ’outside hour’ to the sun peeking through the clouds.

Vitamin D isn't just an immune system nutrient - it can also influence mood, as does exercise. Win, win & win.

How are you Melbourne and Victoria?
Lockdown is experienced differently by many people, but second time around we collectively seem on the spectrum of a little weary, frustrated, sad, scared, accepting - a roller coaster of emotions.

Rather than waiting for ’pressers’ & our daily Covid count, use your online platforms for a source of good vibes - connect with your family, friends, coworkers - particularly the quiet one's. Maybe organise a time to chat while you walk - some of *the best* conversations are had this way.

I’m also precontemplating lockdown lunch time consults - 30min checkin & bite sized health tips. Because most of us only have the headspace for small changes right now - but they can deliver great benefit.

It sounds cheesy I know but I do believe we can do this Victoria - together 😀

Enjoy Monday. Stay well.

Good morning! Happy Friday.

How is everyone in Stage 3 iso in Melbourne & surrounds?

I was one of the many people Covid tested last week & waiting for the test (negative) with the added isolation layer was tough, I really feel for those who are infected and quarantining.

That experience made me approach this week completely differently.

Starting with a morning brain break, a walk around the block at lunch, and committing to getting on the bike trainer & zwifting a bit straight after work. Even threw in some online pump classses 💪🏋️‍♀️

Exercise, better boundaries & having some friends as accountability buddies really did make an amazing difference.

And here we are at Friday. Hope you all have a great day.
And if you’re struggling - reach out to a friend, family member or professional ❤️

LOL. Rice cooking diatribe 😂

We’ve chatted here before about our preferred rice cooking method. I'm steam/absorption method (for most meals but there are exceptions) v the one shown in this video. I think we’ve turned the corner though 💪 ’you can cook it your way’

The description of too wet rice + then adding more water to remove the starch sums up the rice I grew up with. Ok for a rice salad but not a curry. I don't have a rice cooker anymore but Uncle Roger has me wanting one. Just because.

Not at all keen on MSG but the metal spoon on the fry pan bit caused me heart pain 😳 😂
