Meet Kerrie

As individuals we notice that our responses to similar situations and environments are different from the person next to us - even within our own families. 

 

We respond differently to cold and flu seasons, we react differently to stressful situations, our physical and emotional responses to ill-health are different, we crave and reject different foods and experiences. We manage our lives differently and our coping mechanisms for dealing with our external and internal worlds are different. 

 

With this in mind, my naturopathic approach seeks to understand all the factors influencing an individual's health from their personal & family medical histories to their current lifestyle demands, nutrition and daily environments. 

Whether a health concern is acute or chronic, medically diagnosed or a seemingly random collection of symptoms, my passion as a qualified naturopath is working closely with my clients to create the best path forward as they pursue their desired health outcomes.

"Let food be thy medicine

and medicine be thy food"

How can Naturopathy help me?

Naturopathy is based on the principle that the body has the intrinsic ability to heal itself.

In every moment of every day our bodies are striving to keep us at our optimal health and function.  For many reasons, this capacity can become overwhelmed allowing ill-health to take hold.  The naturopathic approach seeks to support our inbuilt capacity to heal by working with the body's natural processes to restore health.

Naturopathy is a practice that in today's context can draw from the learnings of modern science, however its strength comes from coupling this scientific evidence with the well-established traditional practices and empirical knowledge of medicine from its earliest origins.
 
As a result, naturopathic medicine is able to utiilise a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic systems to assist clients who may simply want a better sense of well-being through to those experiencing greater shifts from good health.
