I’m Nadia and I’m a Bachelor qualified Naturopath based in Highett. I find success in utilising those ancient and traditional principals behind health:
1. Symptoms are your body’s way of communicating imbalance
2. Your body (and I mean mind body soul) has an innate mechanism for self healing
3. We work to identify and remove obstacles for this innate self healing to occur.
Of course there are those conditions that require minimal work and those that are very multifaceted and Naturopathy can also work in combination with western medicine/treatment to increase effectiveness of this treatment and/or resolve the side effects of this treatment.
But a bit about me.....I guess I had always been one of those ‘well yet not well’ individuals. Those who have no major illness but are always plagued by digestive or energy or immune or other deficiencies that can be an ongoing thing to ‘manage’.
Until I learnt simultaneously as practitioner and patient the intricacies of chronic fatigue, adrenal exhaustion, autoimmunity, fibromyalgia.
Motivated by, not only helping those who need, but also educating on ways to prevent these and other conditions, which are increasingly prevalent in a society that pushes harder and harder on us all.
I find that those with fatigue, stress/anxiety, hormone and digestive imbalance and immune issues seem to find me, though I treat a wide range of conditions. I also support child and family health and have a 20 year background educating young children.
I offer detox packages, Iridology consults, acute appointments as well, and work on the knowledge that true healing involves a journey of, not only the physical, but mental and emotional self.
So I absolutely love working with other practitioners and therapists. And love following those who promote self care.
And in terms of someone who’d always been ‘well yet not well’, I turned 40 this year and can honestly say the health I have now (and fitness) is the best I’ve ever known. Your health is a gift that should be enjoyed every day
