Herbal Medicine

 

Herbal Medicine is one of the earliest forms of medicine utilising the remarkable properties of plants to change the dynamics of illness and disease.

Herbal medicines are prescribed these days on the basis of thousands of years of accumulated traditional knowledge along with modern scientific evidence.

Herbs are particularly good for women’s hormonal problems, digestion, respiratory and immune system problems as well as chronic illness.

 

Homeopathy

 

Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine that utilises the energy of plants, minerals and other natural substances to correct the imbalances that give rise to illness.

Homeopathy works particularly well for children, is palatable and has minimal risk of side effects.

It is also very helpful in chronic and stubborn  illnesses.

 

Nutritional Therapies

 

Nutritional Medicine uses diets, functional foods and dietary supplements at therapeutic doses to aid healing, reduce inflammation and encourage repair in the body.

It includes special diets that assist repair and detoxification.

Nutritional Therapies can help digestion, the nervous system, hormonal imbalances and sleep problems.

Testing & diagnosis

 

Vegatesting uses an electrodermal screening technique to indicate food sensitivities, states of depletion, and imbalances in organ and hormonal systems. It is particularly helpful for digestive problems.



Iris diagnosis interprets patterns in the iris that are suggestive of weakness (and strengths!) in the body.



Point of Care testing Depending on a persons clinical picture, on site fingerprick blood tests may be utilised to test for menopause, adrenal fatigue, thyroid status, haemaglobin, diabetes risk and inflammation.



The Food Detective Test is an onsite blood test of IgG food intolerance (54 foods) that is conducted on site with results in one hour.



Further testing

Standard pathology tests such as Iron Studies and Multiple Biochemical Analysis from Healthscope may be ordered if needed, as well as private Functional Pathology tests.



Functional Pathology tests are private pathology tests that can give very beneficial additional information about food allergies, digestive function, parasites, liver toxicity and hormonal profiles.



Hair Mineral Analysis tests for minerals, mineral balances and toxic metals such as mercury and cadmium.
