I love the work I do. I am a nutrition nutter and believe “food is medicine” hence my love of naturopathy. Using kinesiology, I use muscle testing to access the brain’s central nervous system to find why, where, and what the cause of the presenting issue is. I then use this information to identify what is needed to restore balance.
As a Naturopath, I tailor a treatment plan based on the person as a whole using scientific and traditional evidence when prescribing the healing qualities of herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, and lifestyle advice along with flower essence therapy.
As a Sports Kinesiologist I integrate orthopaedics, sports medicine, exercise science, nutrition and complementary medicine.
Using this model, we deal with emotions, biochemistry and energetic imbalances that can have negative influences upon our physiology, health and performance. As a result, I am able to look beyond the superficial layers of the injury, illness, performance issue, muscle imbalance or pain and find the underlying cause to your problem and then address it using specific techniques to give you the best outcomes.
Using Functional Medicine, instead of looking for and treating health problems as isolated diseases, I treat individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions, using techniques like Advanced Diagnostic Laboratory Testing, hair tissue mineral analysis, blood pathology, stool, urine, saliva samples and Genetic DNA profiling.
Taking into account what we now know about genetics, epigenetics, and nutrigenomics, I look at how external factors are impacting your health. These include your sleep, the foods you eat, where you live, plastics and toxins in general, as well as ageing and exercise. We may look at genetic polimorphisms or Singular Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) – This is where your genetic code may have a variance in the DNA strand. Some SNPs include MTHFR, COMT, MAO, PEMT and GST. We can test your genes for these SNPs and give you advice on how to best help you reach and/or maintain complete wellness.
