Here’s what you can expect

During our time together

w

First Consultation

  • This is the initial ‘detective’ appointment
  • 60 mins in duration

Online appointment:

It is needed to gather all the necessary information about YOU. This includes a discussion about what you have come to see me for,  previous and current medical and health history, physical observations (blood pressure, weight, height, measurements etc.) and I will get you to email me a picture of your tongue and nails (these tell me valuable information about your health). 

We will address your treatment goals and a specific tailored treatment program will be developed for YOURS TRULY to get you started on. 

We will discuss your first step treatment recommendations to get you started with (e.g. armed with secret weapons to help you: natural medicines [herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, homoeopathic medicine, Australian Bush Flower Essences where indicated], lifestyle or diet tips) and overall beginning treatment plan. We will talk about how I can assist you moving forward to help with your periods, hormones & menstrual cycles (or whatever you have come to see me for). Then you will be referred for further tests if required.

Face-to-Face appointment:

Same approach as above however, I will look at your nails and tongue in person and I will take a close up picture of your eyes for further clues and health information (known as iridology).

Second Consultation

  • This is the review of ‘report of findings’ appointment
  • Normally 2 weeks approx. after your first appointment or enough time to allow for test results (but still plenty to go on with if results aren’t back yet)
  • 45 mins in duration

This is where I will discuss with you what I have discovered about you, have a look over your test results (if they are ready in time) and uncover how we are going to treat what you present with and refine the game plan. By now we have more clues & specific information as to what is going on for you and why you feel the way you do so we can really formulate a more specific treatment.

This is when you will receive tips on things like what to eat, practical lifestyle advice and be armed with specific secret weapons for an easy period and menstrual cycles (or whatever you have come to see me for).

[

Other Consultations

  • These are ‘check in’ appointments
  • Normally every 3-4 weeks approx. (might be every 6 weeks in some cases, depending on what part of the treatment we are working on).
  • 30 mins in duration (can be 45 mins in duration if we have to review pathology tests or do NER – Naturopathic Emotional Release).

These appointments  are  important to check in to see how you are going with it all (review your progress), tweak anything that needs changing, keep you on track, discuss anything that needs covering, reveal tips on what to eat and you are provided with practical lifestyle tips (if not already covered).

We will also get you charting your cycle using temperature & cervical mucus method (if you are still getting your periods & this is appropriate) this gives us very valuable information about your menstrual cycle & period health. It will highlight anything that needs improving as part of your treatment.

We will also be using Naturopathic Emotional Release to work on underlying emotions / stress associated with your symptoms, conditions preventing you from healing. Naturopathic Emotional Release (NER) is also amazing for any sabotages that prevent you from implementing the dietary & lifestyle advice that I provide for you. This will help keep you on track for your health goals! I do this using the amazing technique NER (Naturopathic Emotional Release). Find out more information HERE

After

w

At the end of your treatment you will:

  • Be EMPOWERED and SATISFIED with guidance and direction
  • Feel like your NORMAL self again
  • Be able to LIVE your life with joy, without your periods dictating your social life
  • BE relieved that you have ANSWERS as to why you were having so many issues with your periods, hormones & menstrual cycles
  • Feel REASSURED and LISTENED to

I'd love your feedback

After I have assisted you with your periods, hormones and menstrual cycles:

  • I will send you an email with some short quick feedback questions
  • I would greatly appreciate if you could fill out the questions and return to me via email
  • Thanks in ADVANCE ☺
You could spend hours

(weeks, months or even YEARS!)

going around in circles of frustration, in an attempt to find out what may help improve your periods, hormones & menstrual cycles, by yourself. But to be honest; trial and error is the slowest way to RESULTS.

OR I can help you!

I would LOVE to help you (Periods and Hormones are my ‘THANG’ remember!).

IT IS the fastest solution (no, really! It is!). Treatment is specifically tailored to YOU; remember no presentation of a woman struggling with periods, hormones & menstrual cyels is the same. Which is explains why what works for YOU doesn’t always work for someone else.   

You’ll be fast tracking your way to improving your periods, hormones & menstrual cycle in no time! (wouldn’t that be great!).

You ready? Awesome!

 Frequently asked Questions

I’m not sure if you can help me?

You are in the right place if:

  • Fed up with being told your blood tests are ‘Normal’

But yet you still feel crap with no answers in sight as to why you feel the way you do. And deep down you know that something is up.

  • You’re not satisfied with being prescribed the pill (oral contraceptive pill) for your period issues

It wasn’t what you had in mind, you were expecting a few different options to pursue but this was all that was on offer. And you feel like there must be a better way, a way that is more supportive of your hormones & menstrual cycles (trust me there is!)

  • You’re not satisfied with being prescribed the pill (oral contraceptive pill) for your acne

It wasn’t what you had in mind, you were expecting a few different options to pursue but this was all that was on offer. And you feel like there must be a better way, a way that is more supportive of your body, hormones & menstrual cycles (trust me there is!)

  • You are tired of your period dictating your social life

You find that you are having to plan your social agenda around your periods and the lead up to your period. Continually saying no and feeling guilty, but when your periods run the show it doesn’t really leave you with much other options.

  • Feel dismissed & told period pain is ‘normal’

You go to the GP only to be gaslight and told what you are experiencing is normal and out comes the prescription pad for pain killers, the oral contraceptive pill or antidepressants. But you feel like surely you don’t have to just deal with this (you definitely don’t! period pain is NOT normal)

  • You feel like your hormones run the show and enough is enough

The emotional rollercoaster is hard to bear upon the approach of your period (and you feel so guilty about the way you are around others during that time), you made it through your period (only JUST) and are dreading what the next period will bring.

  • You can’t stand to look at yourself in the mirror

Self-confidence is thrown out the window – you feel ugly with acne, fat and your clothes don’t seem to fit, feel less feminine, self-conscious about excess hair on your face or body. Let’s help your skin glow, to a healthy weight range & help you look & feel fabulous.

    • You would like to break fee from the emotional rollercoaster each month

    Whether it is prior to your period when you are feeling angry, frustrated, irritable, feeling like you are going crazy, anxious or maybe you have hit rock bottom with feeling so flat or depressed. Perhaps you find your emotions just switch at the drop of a hat.

    • Feeling guilty about saying no to sex

    You would like to have sex, but not when you are bleeding all the time, or it is simply too painful to bear.

    • You are so tired you can’t keep your eyes open

    Everything is an effort, doing day-to-day tasks, exercise, feeling like being social with your loved ones. Bottom line is you are EXHAUSTED and to top it all off you are exhausted with having to deal with constant period & menstrual cycle issues. It’s so hard.

    • You would like advice and support with coming off the pill

    Perhaps you have tried before, and your nasty periods came back with vengeance (painful or heavy etc.) or maybe your acne was out of control and you ended up jumping back on it again reluctantly. Or maybe your period was MIA (missing in action) for a long period of time and you are not sure how to get it back again.

    • You have stopped taking the pill & are experiencing hell

    Your periods are a mess (heavy or painful), acne is beyond a joke or your periods are no where to be seen and you are starting to worry.

      Or you have the following or need support with:

      • Period, hormone & menstrual cycle issues (issues with your period – too long, too short, infrequent, period non-existent, heavy flow, light flow, pain, clots, lack of ovulation, exhaustion, low libido, acne, extreme mood changes associated with your cycle either before or during your period etc.)
      • Emotional issues: anxiety, depression, anger, frustration, irritable, feeling flat etc.
      • Low libido
      • PMS
      • PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder)
      • Fibroids
      • Endometriosis
      • Adenomyosis
      • PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome)
      • PCO (Polycystic ovaries)
      • Vaginal Infections: Thrush, Bacterial Vaginosis, Trichomoniasis etc.
      • Urinary Tract Issues: Recurrent UTI’s (Urinary Tract Infections)
      • Thyroid imbalance (Hypothyroid, Hyperthyroid, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Grave’s Disease)
      • Perimenopause (the journey towards menopause)
      • Menopause

      You are definitely in the right place

      Let’s get started!

      How long will my treatment take?

      This one is a little hard to answer as everyone is different; it depends what reasons we find that explain why your periods & menstrual cycles are a mess. It is never usually ONE reason. It is MANY reasons. Obviously, if you have multiple things going on it may take a little longer.

       Generally speaking though; you can expect a minimum of 16 weeks TREATMENT TIME because it takes approximately 3 cycles to correct hormone balance and 16 weeks to correct a nutritional deficiency which is contributing to your period or menstrual cycle issues.

       Remember ROME wasn’t built in a day! Be realistic of your expectations and take into consideration how long you have been experiencing the period or menstrual cycle issues. There is no quick fix. BUT, in saying that…treatment time will generally be A LOT shorter than the duration you have been trying to work it all out on your own or be dismissed by doctors left without answers or a solution AND it is MUCH QUICKER than trying to find out through DOCTOR GOOGLE what to do to help you.

       When you come to see me, I can give you some sort of guidance as to what sort of (rough) time frame you will be looking at. And as we discover all the things impacting your periods and menstrual cycles an even clearer time frame is uncovered as well.
