No matter where you are in your journey I am here to help
As a naturopathic practitioner, Alex has the time to listen and talk to you about how you’re feeling, how you would like to feel and to investigate the root cause of your health problems.
Is this you?
- Your doctor has told you "everything is fine" or "you're doing everything you can", but you continue to feel unwell or like something's not quite right
- You constantly feel bloated, fatigued and in some sort of pain.
- You eat a healthy diet but still experience health problems.
- You regularly feel anxious, depressed and stressed about your current state of health.
- Your health is stopping you from achieving other goals in life.
- You are looking for real answers as to why you feel the way you do, and a new approach to your health.
If you resonate with any of these statements Alex can definitely help you.
Here's how Alex can help
Clinical nutrition involves the analysis of your diet and nutrient intake. This helps to determine if you have any nutritional deficiencies, dysfunction or pathology that could be contributing to your current health issue. Throughout your treatment, Alex will recommend evidence-based diets and nutrients (in the form of practitioner only supplement therapy) to optimise the function of all major body systems and as integral support to your overall health. This is especially useful when it comes to supporting treatments for specific conditions, e.g. hormone imbalances, Endometriosis, etc.
Laboratory testing is a very effective to find what’s really going on in your body and the fast track to finding the root cause of your health issue. Alex works with your medical professionals, functional and pathology laboratories to request and conduct tests that suit your specific symptom presentation. Common examples of these tests include:
- Blood tests
- Stool analysis
- Breath tests (to check small intestine bacteria)
- Heavy metals analysis
- Nutrient tests
- Hormone salivary panels
- Methylation profiles
- Microbiome analysis
- Allergy/food intolerance tests
- Toxin assessment (mould, heavy metal analysis, etc)
- Genetic profiling (Nutrigenomics)
Alex occasionally uses physical assessment techniques in consultation to help her get to the root cause of your problem. Some of these assessments include blood pressure, nail & tongue diagnosis, circulation and breathing assessment.
Practitioner-only natural medicine prescriptions (supplement therapy) can play an imperative part in your healing process. They not only help you feel better quickly but also give the body a kick start by therapizing its function. Alex prescribes you these medicines via her online dispensary Vital.ly An email is then generated to you so you can login in, register your address and make payment for delivery 1-2 business days later.
Alex regularly writes practitioner referrals and request letters on your behalf to GPs, medical specialists and other relevant allied health practitioners. Please note the time taken to complete these referrals is charged according to the hourly rate (in 15min blocks).
This includes helpful information on a number of subjects including reading lists (diet sheets, info sheets, books), water filtration systems, home environmental assessments/advice (e.g. mould, EMF, etc), meditation & self-development schools, detoxification tools (infrared sauna, colonic hydrotherapy, etc), cooking/food/ shopping resources, and so on.
