No matter where you are in your journey I am here to help

As a naturopathic practitioner, I have 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 experience digestion issues and you can't lose weight.
  • 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 most of these statements, I can definitely help you.

Feeling unwell or even just a bit off most of the time is not a normal healthy state of being. Even for a busy modern day woman! What it means is your body is trying to tell you something is out of balance. And this is where I come in.

Here's how I can help

Clinical Nutrition

diet

Clinical Nutrition

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, I 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. IBS, Endometriosis, etc.

Laboratory Testing

Laboratory Testing

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. I work alongside 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)

Physical Assessments

Physical Assessments

Often I use several physical assessment techniques in your consultation that help me get to the root cause of your problem. Some of these assessments include:

  • Blood pressure
  • Naturopathic nail & tongue diagnosis
  • Jaw/gait assessment
  • Breathing style & function assessment
  • Postural assessment
  • Circulation assessment
  • Gastrointestinal palpation

Prescriptions

vitamins

Prescriptions

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. I prescribes you these medicines via Vital.ly, an online dispensary. 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.

Practitioner Referrals

Practitioner Referrals

I regularly write 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).

Resource Advice

hiring

Resource Advice

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.

Highly recommend seeing her!

Alexandra has been a huge help with getting my back to feeling like me. Highly recommend seeing her if you aren’t feeling yourself. She is highly professional and knowledgable and passionate about what she does.

She’s one of the best out there

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Alexandra has a kind and caring disposition and a vast knowledge of an array of different health, nutritional, mental, physiological and spiritual afflictions. She always goes above and beyond using her own experiences, those of mentors she’s gathered, her extensive research and years of study. In my opinion for women’s health and supplements she’s one of the best out there. I highly recommend her.

Alex is so ahead of the game in terms of her knowledge regarding all things health! Her understanding of female hormones and reproductive health far exceeds that of any doctor I have ever seen. She also goes above and beyond in terms of time spent ensuring all bases are covered and is so approachable and patient. I wouldn’t want to be in anyone else’s hands. I feel like Alex will really help me get to the bottom of things!

If I had a team of health helpers Alex would be #1

Rating: 5 out of 5.

If I had a team of health helpers Alex would be #1. I booked in to see Alex 12 months ago for some nutritional guidance. I am a woman in my 50’s who loves the outdoor and especially to cycle. I am healthy and eat a balanced diet but was suffering from stomach discomfort and lack of energy.
Alex is an expert in her field who listens and truly cares. She is responsive, helpful, totally inspirational and I loved her balanced approach. 11/10!
