Stress, Anxiety, Depressive mood syndrome (Dysphoria), Post Natal Depletion Syndrome (commonly known as post natal depression), Post Traumatic stress disorder, Anger, Irritability, Defiance in children, Pyrrole conditions (mood and behavioural issues in children and adults)
Nervous system health :
Working with the nervous system has so many benefits. Helping your nervous system to calm and balance helps every aspect of your being including digestion. Nervous system issues range from:
Sleep issues, mood issues as above, headaches and migraines, memory and/or co-ordination, dementia and Parkinson’s disease support, support and rebalance of sympathetic and parasympathic nervous system that support digestion, circulation and other systems listed here such as immune health, pain, neuralgia’s – post viral neuralgia, facial neuralgia, head and neck neuralgia.
Circulatory health issues include conditions such as Headaches, Migraines, Dizziness, Vertigo, Varicose veins, Haemorrhoids, Hypertension – high blood pressure, blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
Most people are aware of issues with digestion. The issues range from Constipation, Diarrhoea, Nausea, Vomiting, Bloating, Reflux, Indigestion, Pain and cramping, IBS, IBD, Bacterial and or fungal and can include other GUT parasites.
Advanced accurate blood and stool testing is available from Naturopathic labs and offers wonderful insight into the client’s gut health issues and how we can help. Using this information helps formulate a detailed treatment approach – for all ages.
Since Covid 19 we have been experiencing an unprecedented level of immune challenges, not just with covid but with post viral syndromes. The immune system can either be deficient leaving us open to further attacks from bacteria, virus’ and fungi or can be over-reactive contributing to Autoimmune conditions, such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Thyroid conditions, Psoriasis and other auto-immune issues.
The immune system is challenged by stress and digestive issues as well as the normal things we think about such as virus’ bacteria microbes and fungus’.
We see a wide range of immune conditions including; Ross River and Barmah Forrest Virus, Shingles, Herpes, Wart virus – both vaginally and general body wart virus, colds flu’s fungal infections (internal and on the skin), Strep throats and PANDAS (Paediatric autoimmune neuropsychological disorder) and other Auto immune cases such as Rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease, SLE, (Lupus and Scleroderma), Fibromyalgia, and other conditions that are less well known (see below for additional support relating to Infections in lung, bowel, throat and other body parts).
Aside from the normal things we associate with the lungs and respiratory system such as coughs, colds, flu, Tonsillitis and sinus issues (hay fever and sinus), we also work with more chronic conditions such as, Bronchiolitis, Bronchitis, Asthma, Bronchiectasis, Emphysema support, COPD support, SARS and CoV2 Covid virus. Hay fever is a prevalent issue that underpins sinus issues and working to improve hay fever can significantly improve not just sinus but headaches as well.
Fertility and Pre-Conception care:
Looking at both Male and Female health and parameters to help improve conception and pregnancy outcomes. This also includes Pregnancy and post-natal care.
Women’s Reproductive Hormonal balance:
Both Women’s and Men’s hormone balance can provide a number of challenges.
For Women, pre-menstrual issues and painful and or flooding periods can lead to lack of quality of life as well as being difficult to manage leading into and at the time of the flow. There are many factors that contribute to hormonal balance issues and all these factors are considered in your consultation.
Some of the more common things we deal with in clinic are: PMS, PMDD, Heavy painful periods, Irregular periods, Amenorrhea (absent or no period), PCOS, Fibroids, Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, Menopause, Oestrogen dominance, Post Natal depletion syndrome, Loss of libido, supplementary support for hormonal and other cancers, hormone specialisation and regulation.
Men’s Reproductive Hormonal balance:
Men are less likely to approach a Naturopath for help with their hormone balance which is a shame as there is so much, we can offer to help with the male reproductive system. Conditions such as Erectile dysfunction (ED), Prostate health, Low fertility and sperm count, fatigue and loss of libido and motivation. Weight gain or weight loss can also affect a man’s hormone balance. We also offer hormone testing for both men and women.
Aside from reproductive hormone balance, other hormone issues we see regularly and work with are: Thyroid issues and health, Pituitary issues (even in children), Diabetes – Type 1 and Type 2, Adrenal health – for exhaustion or hyperactivity (tired but wired).
Heart health is an important part of our practice. Aside from working with the more common health complaints of Blood pressure, Cholesterol, Palpitations and Chest pains, we also work with more chronic heart health conditions using a supportive approach alongside your current medical practitioners. Conditions such as Congestive heart failure, Atrial fibrillation and cardiomegaly, blockages of the coronary and carotid arteries. We also offer Nutritional support to compliment pharmaceutical medication. This is useful for all heart conditions.
A very misunderstood condition, chronic fatigue syndrome is now being recognised as a complex multifactorial diagnosis involving the neuromuscular system as well as adrenal gland response. It often occurs after a viral episode, particularly post glandular fever or covid and may have a genetic predisposition. It can also occur more recently in relation to toxicity from a variety of chemicals or toxins, in those who are sensitive or have certain gene patterns. It is also known as Fibromyalgia – a much misunderstood phenomena in medical circles. Can respond well with Natural medicines.

Interpreting your Blood and other Results
Ever wondered why your tests from Dr come back ‘okay’ but you still feel yuk?
We offer a Naturopathic interpretation of medical results looking at your wellness parameters, as well as disease.
Often clients are given told their medical results from the Dr are ‘normal’, but the person still feels tired, run down, not quite right or still has the problem they originally went to see the GP for. When a doctor looks at a blood result, they are looking for an outright disease process. So even if your results are slightly over or under the normal limit you will be given a review of “normal” results.
Also under the current Medicare system, Dr’s are limited in the number and extent of testing they can do without significant justification to the Government. This then means that clients may not get the full testing they need to confirm a diagnosis. Naturopaths are trained to look at more than the ranges of the test result. Looking at a full blood count and reading each parameter can give some very insightful information as to levels of B12/Folate or iron (as an example), even if an iron test has not been done. The same goes for kidney function testing, liver, cholesterol etc
From a Naturopathic viewpoint, we assess blood results from the perspective of achieving wellness. The idea is not to wait until you have a disease to start treatment If your blood test readings (or scan, x-ray or other tests) show a change we look for why that change is occuring so we can understand what might be causing your health issues. With Victoria’s background in Nursing, she is well placed to help interpret your blood results and offer practical, natural solutions.
Victoria also encourages clients to get and to keep copies of all their blood and test results. This way the client becomes the keeper of their own records, and they are able to review these easily if needed.
