KATE

My natural health journey began in my early 20’s when I was introduced to Homeopathy. Since I was a young baby, I suffered from excema, followed by pneumonia, recurrent bronchitis, asthma and allergies.  I was prescribed antibiotics, sprays for my irritated nose and of course ventolin, which made me feel like my nervous system was about to explode.  As you can imagine, my digestion was pretty bad by the time I hit my 20’s.  Things began to turn around when I was introduced to Homeopathy and discovered what it was like to feel well.  I began to learn what I needed when.  What remedies I needed and what foods did or didn’t agree with me.  For the first time in my life, I felt I could manage my own health.  This is what I want for you.

I just had to study Naturopathy but after some years of practice, I felt there was a missing link. I decided it was time to move to India for two years, where I studied Homeopathy with several Homeopathic doctors who would treat 60-100 people every day.

In my second year in India, I studied with a Homeopathic Doctor known as a leader in his field of ASD, ADHD, cerebral palsy and other childhood disorders. Dr Praful Barvalia runs two clinics and now a hospital.  He works alongside a Geneticist, Psychologist, Orthapaedic Surgeon, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists in a collaborative way for the benefit of the many children and families he works with.  He also created and continues to run a school for special children.  Nearly all of these children are treated with homeopathy and they have a philosophy that every child is special.  They were given opportunities to reach beyond their perceived potential which was very inspiring.  It was here I felt I learned the missing link and developed a deeper passion for working with children.  Here is one example of research into Autism and Homeopathy from Dr Praful Barvalia and his team.

With over 20 years experience as a naturopath, counsellor and family support worker, I have seen and worked with many children and families juggling a variety of issues.

I understand how stressful it can be when your child is out of balance, and the impact it can have on the entire family. For this reason, I like to begin working with your child or children.  Often other family members become anxious, exhausted or burnt out. In these situations, it may sometimes be valuable to work with each member of the family. A combination of natural therapies can then be utilised to rebalance the whole family unit.  Ultimately, I want you to be able to manage your family’s health.

Food plays a major role in behavioural issues, and I will work with you to uncover intolerances and imbalances in the diet. We will then use homeopathic remedies to help stimulate the body’s own natural healing process and if required, herbal medicine to help nourish various organ systems.

This well rounded approach helps you and your family find a healthy, happy balance, creating the vital family you deserve.
