I am a passionate naturopath, gut health nerd, speaker, writer, mentor, and mamma!
I know what it feels like to have gut issues. Many years of ongoing symptoms, testing, and visits to health professionals led me to become a naturopath and using naturopathic medicine to help my own gut health issues.
With a family history of Crohn’s disease, food allergies and autoimmune disease, my mission for my own health and that of my family is to change the current path and prevent these diseases from occurring in future generations.
My mission is to support patients with gastrointestinal disorders and complaints, in particular inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic reflux, chronic infections and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
Throughout my studies, I dedicated a significant amount of time focusing on the gastrointestinal system and the microbiome. Since then, I have undertaken further research in this area and also co-authored a book for health professionals on SIBO. I have also mentored and assisted other practitioners around Australia with their complex gut health clients. I am constantly upskilling and immersing myself in all areas and conditions relating to the gastrointestinal system, including reviewing research articles and participating in seminars and webinars across Australia.
While I believe in traditional naturopathic medicine, I focus on using evidence-based practices to maximise long-term health outcomes through individualised naturopathic care. My aim is to assist you in achieving your individual health goals.
Health does not have to be complicated. As a gut health and lifestyle coach, I believe in simplifying people’s lifestyles and creating habits and routines that will provide a foundation for long-term health.
An integrative approach is best for health outcomes and, should the need arise, I will refer you to a trusted colleague. Functional medicine and testing are often used as part of my overall treatment to enhance client outcomes.
I am available for face-to-face appointments at my clinic in Wangaratta and also frequently consult with clients online, helping people all over Australia to improve their health. If you would like to work with me and get to the bottom of your gut health concerns, simply start by booking a gut health call today.
