Mums are the ones who take care of everyone but who look’s after them? They are also the ones who take responsibility for their children’s health, give medicines and organize after school activities. Many mums work and juggle housework with childcare. They are the main users of natural therapists in Australia.
Too many children are treated poorly by doctors, stuffed with antibiotics and given drugs for behavioural problems. We want to educate mums about the benefits of changing the diet and adding minerals and supplementation and the huge improvements you can see when you do that.

Autism, ADHD and learning difficulties are on the rise. 1 in 10 children are now diagnosed with Autism and 1 in 5 will have allergies or asthma.
Many mums need support and advice to enable them to stick to a course of natural treatment, and education to enable them to succeed at their chosen course of action.
Let’s not forget Dads in the equation for they will often be carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders…they may be working full time and missing out on their children growing up, or are taking the responsibility for providing financial support. Or maybe they are providing the main caring role as their other half has gone to work full time. Modern family dynamics have changed so much and therefore men’s roles have too. Often they are not prepared and not equipped to deal with those changes. Families may have been split through divorce, grief or addictions. Dads may be suffering myriad health issues from diabetes, adrenal exhaustion, hay fever, high cholesterol to high blood pressure.
Some up and coming blogs and talks at the clinic will include:
- What can you use instead of antibiotics for ear infections?
- Dairy Free? What can you have instead?
- How can I make a lunch box healthy?
- Herbal options for PMT or menopause
- How to lose weight but keep the carbs!
- How to deal with stress
- What do you eat if you are diabetic or have insulin resistance?
- Cancer prevention
We generally ask a lot of questions in order to get a “complete picture” of the person. Our appointments may be structured as one long appointment or broken down into 3 smaller chunks. This is in line with our view that we treat Holistically. It means that we look at every aspect of a person’s mental, emotional, spiritual and physical state. We believe that we need to find the “root cause” of “dis-ease” in order to effectively treat. This is in direct opposition to the orthodox medical model which breaks people down into “parts” and treats each part accordingly. For example: High Blood Pressure? Take blood pressure tablets: High Blood Sugar? Take Insulin.
We try to see behind that and treat the cause while paying attention to providing symptom relief.
