ELISSA EASTGATE - NATUROPATH BHSc
Nutritional Medicine, Herbal Medicine, Flower Essences.
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. I try to get to the root of the cause, rather than just treating the signs and symptoms. This is done through diet, lifestyle changes and if needed supplementation.
What I like about natural medicine is that we are very patient focused. We get to spend time with you and listen to your concerns. I primarily work through food as medicine and if needed supplementation with herbs and/or vitamins.
The main areas of health I treat (however am not limited to) are:
- Allergies/Intolerances (including people on the FODMAP diet).
- Mental health issues including: stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks.
- Weight loss.
- Digestive issues including: Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, IBS, Coeliac's.
- Diabetes Type 1 and 2.
There are many areas that natural medicine can treat. There is always a larger picture when looking at 'dis-ease', which most people are never fully aware of. Natural medicine is never a quick fix, however with the right tools (diet, lifestyle, emotional support), long-term the results are more permanent.
