What inspired you to become a naturopath, and how did your journey lead you to Santos Organics?
I was really unwell in year 12. I was told my only option was to go home, drink water and rest. It was really disheartening so I started seeing a naturopath. I learnt so much about how to support my body. I became a naturopath because I wanted to pass this knowledge on to others.
What are your credentials, and how long have you been practicing naturopathy?
I have a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy). I've been practicing for 8 years.
Which modalities do you use in your practice?
The modalities I draw on in my practice include:
- Herbal medicine
- Clinical nutrition
- Sports nutrition
- Flower essences
- Food as medicine
What areas of naturopathy do you specialise in, and how do you apply your expertise to support well-being?
I specialise in stress, anxiety, fatigue, burn out and mental health. Come say hi when you're having a rough day. I think it's important to understand the multitude of layers contributing to an individual's well-being. I look at environment, sleep quality, emotional well-being, diet, and nutritional deficiencies and requirements.
