Herbal Medicine in Mackay

Just as the flowers grow from the earth, so the remedy grows in the hands of the physician. The remedy is nothing but a seed that must develop into that which it is destined to be.

~ Paracelsus

What is Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is the centuries old practice of using the innate properties of plants to support healing. In Australia the use of herbal medicines is regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), ensuring the highest quality and standards of the various forms of herbs are dispensed by Herbalists and Naturopaths.

The dispensing of herbs can take on the form of tablets, liquid extracts, powders or therapeutic teas. As a Herbalist, I use the latest scientific research to guide my prescriptions. This ensures you achieve optimal health.

How I Work as a Herbalist

In both my clinics in Mackay I use herbal medicine as a cornerstone in my naturopathic treatment strategy. Herbs play an integral role in the body’s healing process.

As an herbalist, I often incorporate herbal medicine into my treatment plans. This allows me to create a unique combination of herbs tailored to address your specific symptoms. The diverse active ingredients within plants work together to produce beneficial effects while minimizing side effects.

Your personalised treatment plan will generally consists of a liquid herbal blend combined with simple dietary and lifestyle modifications. My goal for you is to have you feeling improvements within the first week. This strengthens your body to progress through a longer-term treatment plan. Leading to a healthier and happier you.

Treatment Plan

Your results matter, so time will be spent helping you understand what each aspect of your treatment means and how it all connects to ensure you achieve optimal health in a timely manner.

Your personalised treatment plan will combine simple dietary and lifestyle modifications, and theraeputic, evidence-based herbs. These are recommended to speed up your healing.

I aim to have you noticing improvements within the first week. This renewed vitality paves the way for the deeper work that is often required. Each day your body builds strength to progress through the longer-term treatment plan, ensuring you achieve optimal health.

Ongoing Support

Your initial appointment is an hour in duration. I will use this time to understand you and your personal illness or health concerns. To do this there will be a series of questions, delving in to unravel the root cause of your poor health. From here I tailor a personal treatment plan, and support you throughout.

After the initial naturopathic consultation, a follow-up appointment is scheduled two weeks later to refine and deepen the treatment plan, addressing long-term drivers of disease, poor health, and imbalances. To ensure sustained progress and prevent relapses into old habits, we recommend regular, shorter follow-up appointments lasting 20 to 30 minutes. These ongoing support sessions help keep patients on track toward their health goals.

Once the initial health objectives have been achieved, we advise patients to schedule appointments every 2-3 months to maintain their well-being. Over time, as their health continues to improve, we may extend the interval between appointments to every 6 months. This ongoing support is essential for nurturing lasting wellness and empowering patients to lead healthier, more balanced lives.

I will guide, educate, and support your recovery every step of the way. Change is always possible when you know how. With your new awareness and self-compassion you’ll have a fresh appreciation of how amazing your body is. Equipped with your diet and lifestyle toolkit you can remain on this path to a vibrant and healthy you.

A personalised and evidence-based approach to helping you discover how you became sick and what we can do to restore optimal health.

Discovering the Cause

Identifying the cause of your illness or disease is the first step to resolution. We spend the first Naturopathic consultation discovering the underlying drivers to your ill health. There are questions from me, that dig deep into how you came to experiencing your symptoms. It’s also a time for you to understand the interconnectedness of your body and environment. Learn how your mind, body, thoughts, emotions, and external environment influence your health.

Personalised Prescription

Your treatment plan may include prescriptions of high-quality practitioner-grade nutritional or herbal supplements. These are the best way to promote healing and retore balance at a cellular level. These prescriptions are fluid. Meaning they’ll most likely change as time progresses and your body heals. It’s the reason why I structure fortnightly appointments for the first three. My goal is to help you achieve optimal health, without having to rely on supplements forever. But they provide essential support to heal your body.

Dietary
Plan

The initial Naturopathic consultation will include simple dietary modification. My goal is to simplify the process. This helps you achieve progressive goals, moving you closer to achieving optimal health. Be empowered, encouraged, and guided every step of the way.

Functional
Testing

Functional testing may be recommended at some stage of your treatment. These tests help to identify specific imbalances, deficiencies, or reactivity states. I always discuss the recommended testing with you, ensuring the test is clinically relevant and beneficial to your health plan.
