WHAT IS HOLISTIC MEDICINE? 🌿 To treat people holistically means to treat the individual, rather than the disease. In this sense, we validate the patient’s perception of their health. What if someone has had every known medical investigation, yet no abnormality is reported? Does this mean it is all ‘in their head’? Well, no it does not! From a holistic perspective there may be no disease, but something is wrong. Medicine usually sees health as an absence of disease & defines illness in terms of discernible & diagnosed disease states. Holism sees health as the sense of positive wellness alongside an absence of disease, making a further distinction between being unwell & having a disease. A disease is a condition which is defined by reproducible signs (abnormal pathology) but illness is a subjective sense of disharmony which may or may not be related to disease. Organs may not be functioning optimally, but as yet are not diseased, with testing falling within normal ranges. This is where the Naturopath steps in, taking a full case history to identify body systems that require support & nurturing in order to prevent disease onset. TRUST YOUR GUT INSTINCTS- IF YOU FEEL ‘NOT QUITE RIGHT’, THERE IS PROBABLY A GOOD REASON! #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #gcgib #goldcoasthealth #mumsandbubs #healthyfamily #naturalhealth #healthyalternative #preventativehealth #livinghealthy #harvestinghealth #goldcoastsmallbusiness #gcwomeninbusiness #herbalmedicine #holisticnutrition #iridology #wellnesscoaching #healthjourney #oftheearth #naturallyconnected #mytribe #healfromwithin #takebackyourpower #makeapromise #healthandwellbeing #listentoyourbody #lovelifeagain #regainyourvitality
Sadly, in our profession it’s all to common to hear that one of our peers or colleagues has pulled out of the game .. We are losing bright, intelligent, and passionate professionals far too prematurely - many within the first 5 years of practice .. Choosing to pursue naturopathy is definitely not choosing the easy path. As we all know, there are ups and downs, constant challenges, many late nights, lots of worrying, and endless amounts hard work .. The current paradigm of our profession means that, for most of us, we must simultaneously be the practitioner, the receptionist, the accountant, the marketer, and more - all roles balled into one demanding job .. Being ready for or expecting this, especially after enduring a exhausting 4 years of study, is something that many young naturopaths express they are not adequately prepared for, nor can they sustain themselves .. And sadly, in many cases, we lose them all too soon .. Naturopathy is one of the only health professions that doesn’t have a formal supervision or or ongoing post-graduate training framework in place. Imagine what magnificent practitioners and a strong workforce we could create if we invested more time and care in our fledglings and had structured intern programs like the medical profession does? .. No one will hand this to us on a silver platter - we must takes steps to implement these changes ourselves .. We owe it to naturopathy and to all the past, present, and future naturopaths of our profession who are caring for the country and helping people to heal .. #seedfund #mentor #intern #bethechange
SLEEP!!! 🙌 It may seem counterintuitive, but studies have found sleep to be more important than exercise for weight loss⁉️⁉️ Poor sleep mucks around with the hunger signalling system (reduced leptin & increased ghrelin levels), so you are more inclined to eat. 😳 This doesn’t mean you don’t need to exercise, I didn’t say that!! But getting adequate sleep is super important, and should be a top priority, particularly if you are trying to get kilos down. So, where you can- get an early night, and don’t feel guilty next time you have a lie in. You’re doing it for your waistline 😉😝

#burdenedbody #Repost @leone3609_harvesting_health ・・・ HOW DOES CONSISTENT STRESS AFFECT YOUR THYROID? 🤔 Our adrenal glands and thyroid work together to regulate many physiological functions including our stress response. All metabolically active tissues require thyroid hormone & deficiency can manifest in various ways. * elevated cholesterol & homocysteine *heart palpitations *sensitivity to heat & cold *hair loss, dry skin *brain fog, poor memory & cognition *low mood, anxiety & depression *impaired memory & concentration *neck pain, sore throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing *constipation &low appetite *pallor, anaemia *weight gain *sleepiness, lethargy & fatigue *yellowing of hands & skin *pins & needless, numbness When we are exposed to consistent unrelenting stress, the adrenal glands ask the thyroid for help. If the thyroid is overtaxed, hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis May develop. These conditions occur as a result of trauma and stress (physiological and psychological). Reverse T3 is made as a response to this stress as a method of maintaining homeostasis (life) as a means to conserve energy, thus reducing metabolism. This is a measure of being overwhelmed & it is important once optimal health is restored to continue lifestyle suggestions to assist with improving the stress response. #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #thyroidhealth #hashimotosdisease #hypothyroidism #hypothyroid #adrenalfatigue #stressedout #thyroidhormones #holistichealing #holistichealthcoach #foodasmedicine #antiinflammatorydiet #eatwelllivewell #glutenfreelife #autoimmunedisease #thewaytohealth #eatcleanfood #mindfulnessmeditation #emotionalfitness #journeytohealth #healfromwithin #mindbodysoulfitness #fillyourcup #listentoyourbody #mindmatters #harvestinghealth #naturopathcoomera

DO YOU ENJOY THE SMELL OF RAIN? ☔️ 🌧 Interestingly, the smell of rain can actually improve your mood and reduce anxiety! On the Gold Coast today it isn’t its customary sunny ☀️ Self, instead it is bucketing down!! ☔️ Apart from the smell of rain, perhaps the fact that I can relax in bed a little longer as it’s too wet for much outdoors, as well as having a chance to catch up on bookwork, also decreases my anxiety! What is it you do in wet weather? #goldcoastnaturopath #seq #petrichor #coomera #rainysundays #timetorelax #catchupday #wetandrainy #restandrestore #taketimeout #bedhog #needaboat #sunnyqld #websitework #onlinemarketingstrategy #marketingmanager #naturalhealthcare #naturopathicmedicine #herbalmedicine #nutritioncoach #iridology #functionalmedicine #healthygoldcoast #qldhealth #alternativemedicine #preventativemedicine
{ Cinnamon Vernum } also known as true cinnamon is one of my favourite herbs to recommend using as food. Cinnamon is great for stabilising blood sugar levels and tricks your taste buds into thinking you are having something sweet. So if you are wanting to beat those sugar cravings add 5g (1 tsp.) of Cinnamon vernum to your food each day. You can pick this up from most of your health food stores or indian spice shop (remember to get true cinnamon not cinnamon cassia). I love adding it into my coconut yoghurt, smoothies, chai lattes, over my pancakes or in chia puddings. . . . #herbalmedicine #naturalmedicine #goldcoastnaturopath #naturopath #instahealth #guthealth #healthyfood #health #healthblog #sugarcravings #goldcoastbusiness #goldcoast #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #wellness #wholefoods #nutrition #mindfullness #thewellnessemporium #hormonalimbalances #womenshealth #burleighheads #naturalhealth #healthy #hormones #naturopathy #bloodsugarbalancing #cinnamon #sweet #foodasmedicine

DO YOU STRESS THE SMALL STUFF? 😱😤 Lately, I’m very tired 💤 as I’ve been burning the candle at both ends (work related) and I find when I’m tired I start to stress over little incidental things. ⠀⠀ Good health requires adequate sleep 😴 to maintain a healthy mind and this equates to a healthier body. ⠀⠀ Is your health suffering when you can make a change for the better? ⠀⠀ #sleepdeprived #stressedout #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #mindfulnessmeditation #changeyourmindset #positivevibesonly #balanced #journeytohealth #mentalhealthawarenessday #emotionalfitness #mentalhealthmatters #healfromwithin #emotionalfitness #mindbodysoulspirit #holistichealing #powerofpositivity #takebackyourpower #believeinyou #mindmatters #nomorestigma #fillyourcup #lovelife #healthandwellbeing #harvestinghealth #courageous #lifeisforliving #selfcaretips #ipreview @preview.app
Premenstrual syndrome 🌟 Symptoms include mood swings, breast tenderness, food cravings, irritability, bloating and fatigue, about a week or a few days before your period. PMS can be caused because of excess estrogen or progesterone deficiency. These can be influenced by stress, unhealthy diet, nutrient deficiencies and more. Things to do if this is occurring for you: - eat a wholesome diet, eat More fruit and vegetables, in particular cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli. These help excrete excess oestrogen out of the body. - eat more warming nourishing foods. - PLENTY of water And light exercise such as walks or yoga! Herbal medicine is also really great for regulating your hormones, which your naturopath can prescribe 🌿 - - - naturopathic appointments available Monday and Saturday’s, or Skype consults available too!
WHAT IS HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA 🤔🤓 It is the most common cause of elevated cholesterol levels. Diet often plays a role in the pathogenesis but this is not the only factor that can cause high cholesterol. ⠀⠀ Hypothyroidism - the thyroid is the chief regulator of most physiological & metabolic functions, including cholesterol levels. ⠀⠀ Adrenal Dysfunction- when we are in a constant ‘fight or flight’ mode, the body is in a state of inflammation & oxidative stress, causing homocysteine levels to rise. ⠀⠀ Impaired Liver Function- cholesterol is synthesised by the liver and thus to a large extent determined by this organ. ⠀⠀ So although diet is an obvious contributor, the Naturopathic clinician will examine & asses other body systems & develop a treatment plan to support those that are implicated in each individual case. ⠀⠀ DIETARY CONSIDERATIONS * reduce intake of saturated and trans fats * reduce intake of refined carbohydrates & sugars * increase ‘good’ fat intake (salmon, avocado, olive oil etc). * increase green fibrous vegetables * increase whole grains in diet (unless GF) * increase foods high in Niacin #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #cholesterol #liverfunction #hypothyroidism #goldcoastnutritionist #eatrealfoods #thewaytohealth #foodasmedicine #eatwelllivewell #wholefooddiet #glutenfreelife #nutrientdense #antiinflammatorydiet #foodisfuelforthebody #eatforhealth #naturalfoods #wholebodymedicine #organiclife #guthealthmatters #healthytreats #healthyfats #digestion #constipation #healthygut #healfromwithin #yourlifeyourchoice #functionalfoods
Yesterday was one of “those days”! Extremely busy at work, running late to pick kids up, and mind full of my to-do list. . Arrived at school late, threw on my shoes from the floor of the car, rushed inside to get my daughter, chatted briefly to another school mum, talked to the teachers, then after about 5 mins total of collecting my child, arrived back to my car. I looked down to find I had been wearing 2 different shoes! Not even similar shoes- one slip on, one thong!! I almost died with laughter & embarrassment 😂🤣 . The universe was giving me a whisper to “slow down” before it turns into a scream that can’t be ignored. . So, today I’ve taken more time to stop & BREATHE, let a few unimportant things go, & realised I can’t do it all! . Anyone else had one of “those days?” . Feel free to share if you’ve had a similar 🤪🙄🤣 incident! . #keepingitreal #naturopathsarehumantoo

WHAT IS DIABETES MELLITUS? 🤓🤔Diabetes MELLITUS (DM) is a metabolic disorder caused by an absolute or relative lack of insulin. Type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disorder), generally begins in childhood due to a destruction of pancreatic beta cells- these patients require supplemental insulin all their lives. Type - diabetes is related to genetic susceptibility combined with an environmental trigger (virus, cows milk protein, leaky gut) which leads to insulin is, autoimmune activation & subsequent immune attack in beta cells. Type 2 diabetes however, is associated with being overweight. All overweight patients develop insulin resistance- only developing diabetes when they can no longer increase beta cell production of insulin. Type 2 diabetes (non insulin dependant), generally begins in adulthood due to poor dietary & lifestyle habits. Oxidation stress is a key player in both types of DM. Diabetics have an increased risk of - * heart & blood vessel diseases * permanent blindness * kidney disease & kidney failure * nerve damage * foot ulcers & amputation SYMPTOMS INCLUDE * frequent urination * excessive thirst * extreme hunger * unusual weight loss * increased fatigue * irritability * blurry vision These are symptoms common to many other disorders. If you suffer from these vague symptoms, best to consult with a clinician to assess your diet & lifestyle to identify any contributing factors & start your journey to recovery. The Naturopathic clinician uses nutraceuticals that are proven to improve blood sugar parameters. This is then supported by dietary ‘tweaks’ to improve health #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #bloodsugar #insulinresistance #diabetestype2 #diabetestype1 #autoimmunedisease #dietary #lifestyleguide #nutrients #holisticmedicine #wholisticmedicine #foodasmedicine #wholefoodsdiet #exercisemotivation #alternativemedicine #preventativemedicine #preventativehealth #healthmatters #guthealthmatters #goldcoastsmallbusiness #goldcoastnutrition #blindness #kidneydisease #holisticmedicine #herbalmedicine #nutraceuticals

WHAT IS WILDCRAFTING? 🌱🌿 As naturopaths we use many different herbals in clinic and for the most part, these are already available in liquid tinctures. Went to a fab talk last night by Heidi Merika on ‘wildcrafting’. Basically, gathering local native ‘weeds’ to make powerful medicines! This isn’t anything new, rather this is an age old tradition (in Aust by Indigenous people’s) that we have let slip by, simply because it is time consuming. This is a reflection of the pace of the times we live in!

Lately I have been incorporating visualisation meditation into my routine rituals and it has really helped to change my mindset and focus on what I want to see in my life. Your thoughts, your words and your actions all become your reality… so start dreaming up what you want to see in your life. How to do a visualisation meditation? Visualise what you want to see… write this down and say it out loud. Then spend 5 min meditating on this particular vision. After the 5 minutes is up, write down anything else that popped in to your thoughts. Practice this as often as you can. Remembering that dreams CAN become your reality <3 . . . #herbalmedicine #naturalmedicine #goldcoastnaturopath #naturopath #instahealth #guthealth #healthyfood #health #healthblog #goldcoastbusiness #goldcoast #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #endometriosis #wellness #wholefoods #nutrition #mindfullness #thewellnessemporium #hormonalimbalances #womenshealth #burleighheads #naturalhealth #healthy #meditation #naturopathy #dream #dreams #mindset #visualisation

{ H E R B S - 4 - H O R M O N E S } These two are some of my favourite herbs when addressing hormonal issues. Peony (paeonia lactiflora) & Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) are often used in combination in hormonal remedies including PCOS, endometriosis and androgen excess. Peony exhibits anti-inflammatory and oestrogen modulating effects and has the ability to inhibit the production of testosterone (so great for conditions where high androgens are present such as in PCOS, hormonal acne and hirsutism). Licorice also has the ability to reduce serum testosterone in women and contains phytoestrogens that block androgen receptors. It is also a powerful adrenal tonic, also exhibiting anti-inflammatory effects and often used in conditions such as PCOS, infertility and androgen excess in women. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #herbalmedicine #naturalmedicine #goldcoastnaturopath #naturopath #instahealth #guthealth #healthyfood #health #healthblog #PCOS #goldcoastbusiness #goldcoast #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #endometriosis #wellness #wholefoods #nutrition #mindfullness #thewellnessemporium #hormonalimbalances #womenshealth #burleighheads #naturalhealth #healthy #hormones #naturopathy #adrenalfatigue #acne
“I Never Get Sick” - this is good, right?? Well actually NO. 😱 Read on to understand why. Adrenal insufficiency/ fatigue: this results from chronic stress & an impaired adaptive mechanism over long periods of time, with a strained response to both physical & psychological stressors. An untreated adrenally-fatigued client generally functions normally when environmental situations are optimal,but has a tendency to increased tiredness 💤For eg, if intense exercise is done, or meals missed, the client will suffer from hypoglycaemia. Often these individuals suffer from illnesses more frequently, with more intense symptoms, often lingering longer. HOWEVER, if extremely adrenally fatigued, the client may say, “I NEVER GET SICK”. The client may wear this like a ‘badge of honour’, however this indicates to the health professional that the client LACKS THE RESERVES TO MOUNT AN IMMUNE RESPONSE! The symptoms we experience when sick (diarrhoea, vomiting, fever, sweat, mucous) are all the pathways the body uses to eliminate pathogens. If the body cannot do this successfully, then the disease state may become chronic. As clinicians the priority is to restore adrenal function & improve the client’s stress response. Herbal medicine offers respite from the effects of everyday stress & can tonify and restore adrenal function. Certain nutraceuticals are also implemented to assist with restoration of adrenal function. Once energy has improved, it is vital to remember to always KEEP A RESERVE OF ENERGY IN THE BANK. Don’t push it & burn it just cause you have it!!

What it is that makes us US? .. Is it the tools we work with? Or the supplements we prescribe? Or the herbs and nutrients we master? .. Medical doctors and other health professionals can prescribe supplements, does this mean they’re naturopaths too? .. Or is it our core philosophies - the values and beliefs we have about health, healing, and the human body? .. We must define our own framework, before someone else defines it for us .. How do you define yourself as a naturopath? .. Photo by Noah Buscher on Unsplash .. #reclaimourname
Frittata is a quick easy meal to have for lunch or afternoon snack. #mealprep You don't need flour or milk.... just mix your veges together with eggs and bake. #glutenfree #dairyfree I use savoury yeast flakes to give a 'cheesy' flavour. This time I experimented with vegan cheese as well... but don't think it needs it. #recipe Grated zucchini & carrots Fresh herbs like thyme Salt, tsp mustard 6x eggs 1/4 cup savoury yeast And bake until set #easy I find my kids are STARVING when they come home from school. I like to prepare healthy food for them to eat like this frittata... to reduce snacking on processed foods (chips, biscuits etc) It is also a great way to eat more veges. ✔ #eatyourveges #healthysnacks #schoolsback #healthykids #guthealth #paleo #keto #detox #nutrition #goldcoastnaturopath

WHAT IS YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF? 🙏 Some days we are so busy trying to be a parent, spouse, confidante, entrepreneur etc we forget who we actually are! A little bit of reflection and self care may allow us ‘breathing space’ to get in touch with our authentic self. When we can be true to ourselves, the flow on effect can be so beneficial to those around us.

WHAT IS IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME? 💥🚽 The majority of IBS cases stem from@low stomach acid and/ or intestinal permeability. Other causes include intestinal hypersensitivity or dysmotility, where the body is accustomed to reacting with either diarrhoea or constipation & has yet to Learn a regular bowel motion response. Neurotransmitter imbalances (stress anxiety and depression) also impact intestinal motility. Have you ever had a ‘gut wrenching’ experience or a ‘gut’ feeling? How many trips to the bathroom do you need before taking an exam or an important interview? Increased inflammation from post viral gastroenteritis may also be a cause due to dysbiosis (imbalanced gut & intestinal micro flora). Some dietary contributors to dysbiosis are - * high protein diets * diets high in refined carbs or sugars * increased sulphite intake DO YOU SUFFER FROM IBS? The Rome Criteria to determine if you do, is- 1. Altered stool frequency either more than 3 bowel motions a day or less than 3 per week 2. Altered stool formation (lumpy/hard/loose/watery) 3. Altered stool passage (straining/urgency/fecal incontinence/incomplete evacuation 4. Passing mucous or blood in the stool From a natural clinician’s perspective, it is important to address the cause & then provide symptomatic relief, whilst re-inoculating the bowel with beneficial flora. Once the initial healing phase has been established & completed, the client is able to manage a healthy digestive & evacuation response with stress management, exercise & dietary changes. 👌👍 #irritablebowelsyndrome #diarrhoea #constipation #dysbiosis #guthealthmatters #functionalmedicinecoach #foodismedicineformybody #bloating #cramping #gutwrenching #anxietyanddepression #ibsawareness #ibsdiet #irritablebowel #irritableboweldisease #holistichealthcare #guthealthy #guthealthiskey #goldcoastnaturopath #coomera #uppercoomera #goldcoasthealthandfitness #gastroenteritis #gastrointestinal #gastrointestinalhealth #goldcoasthealth #wellnesswarriors #dietiskey

What is Holistic Health? 🙏 Nurturing not only our body with food, but our spirit with ‘soul food’ and our mind with positive, happy thoughts helps us achieve wellness. When we are angry, sad or frustrated- this affects our immune system and inflammatory pathways causing disease.

How Can We Show a Sense of Community? 😻Often in society today, people are competing with one another rather than supporting one another. People are also often too busy to show others respect in simple ways- replying to texts or emails, just to acknowledge the trouble someone has gone to. Lately I am finding many people have lost that community spirit. A sense of community actually enhances health & leads to longevity. So a lack of community spirit actually impacts the health of those who don’t give a damn! #communitymatters #communityspirit #communityhealth #respectoneanother #bekindtoallkind #sharethelove ❤️ #communitysupport #healthyspirithealthybody #holistichealthcare #healthymindhealthybodyhealthylife #harvestinghealthylifestyle #goldcoastnaturopath #goldcoastsmallbusiness #goldcoastgirlsinbusiness #supportivesister #healthycommunity #coomera #seq
For many naturopaths, entering and working in the healthcare sphere can feel more like being on a battlefield than working within a system that has the patient’s best interest in mind .. So often, the mainstream fire hostile shots our way, accusing us as being the ‘competition’ or worse, the ‘enemy,’ when in truth we are friend, not foe .. There exists so much untapped potential for truly collaborative care - a model that would provide relief for the GPs inundated with too many chronically ill individuals who have too little time to treat them effectively, or for the entirely preventable escalation of our modern, western diseases - diseases that naturopathy is ideal for managing and treating .. We offer support, resources, and expertise that they don’t have .. Time to tap into the potential and return to pursuing the best interests of the individuals we are both treating .. #untappedpotential #friendnotfoe #wearenottheenemy #collaborativecare
