Success in life starts with a focus on health
During our consultations we will explore a range of options to treat your concerns, which can be easily implemented into your busy lifestyle.
We believe in using food as medicine; which is why nutrition is a core focus of our naturopath services.
Unfortunately, our modern diets combined with our lack of time mean we aren’t getting the nutrition we need to thrive. And poor diet ultimately leads to poor health and disease. Fortunately, even small changes can lead to significant health improvements.
As part of our naturopath services, any nutritional deficiencies are assessed with simple dietary changes recommended that are unique to each individual. At times, certain deficiencies may require additional supplemental therapy such as minerals and vitamins.
Herbal Medicine is a treatment modality we use in our naturopath services using the inherent healing properties of plants as medicine, and is increasingly being validated by current scientific research and published literature.
In Australia, we are fortunate to have access to heavily regulated, high quality herbal medicines that consider not only clinical experience of practitioners, but the ancient wisdom derived from centuries of use.
At Performance in Health we use herbal medicine for both acute and chronic conditions, and individually prescribe based on the presenting symptoms and the underlying causes unique to each individual.
Food Allergies & Intolerances
At Performance in Health we use both the IgE food allergy test and IgG and IgA test as part of our naturopath treatments, to truly understand which foods are causing symptoms and blocking your path to better health.
Rather than prescribing a nutrition and herbal medicine plan and sending you on your way, we go one step further to provide lifestyle coaching which supports your journey towards optimal health. As your coach, we partner you in this journey and together we work out what things are most important to you, what things you are happy to walk away from and what is realistic with your current lifestyle.
Optimal health doesn’t mean leading a restrictive life; rather, it’s about being pro-active about maintaining good health. Feeling happy is an important part of optimal health and optimal health is needed to be happy.
Our role is to help and support you in developing a realistic strategy that you are happy with in taking control of your long term health.
Functional Pathology & Gut Testing
As part of our naturopath treatments, we may call for specialised pathology & GUT testing to further investigate the underlying cause of various health problems.
We use these tests for issues such as gastrointestinal function, parasitic infections, hormonal imbalances, liver function, nutritional requirements and toxic metal analysis.
By delving deeper, we are able to treat not only the symptoms of your discomfort, but the underlying cause; leading to improved wellbeing for years to come.
