Contemporary Healthcare offers a consultation style to suit individual needs, budget and location, embracing the natural healing principles to optimise thoughts, breathing, hydration, nutrition, sleep and movement, combined with other naturopathic practices and herbal medicine. I integrate Western and Eastern philosophy, weaving tradition with modern research including experiential and intuitive knowledge to nurture the body’s self-healing wisdom.
During a consultation and depending on the appointment type we may explore your dreams and aspirations, goals and priorities, past medical history and family medical history, symptoms, diet, lifestyle, supplement intake and any other information you wish to share. With your permission I may also carry out clinical examinations, for example: blood pressure, tongue observation and use subtle energy diagnostic methods such as medical dowsing and medical astrology.
Consultations are designed to give you time and space to safely reflect, encouraging you to connect more deeply with the healing process. Health appraisal questionnaires are used to illustrate metabolic individuality, biorhythm (your unique patterning), energetic and elemental constitution, physical, structural, emotional, psychological, behavioural and spiritual characteristics to engage the whole you and your environment. This enables us to discover physiological imbalances and biological disturbances at a root level.
My primary role is to guide and support you with practical self help techniques, designed to your specific needs and co-created so that you leave the consultation feeling listened to, cared for and inspired to implement positive change.
To ensure a safe process all suggestions and recommendations take into consideration of existing treatment plans for possible interactions and/or contraindications. In some cases I may (with your permission or at your request) make referrals, dialogue with other health professionals and suggest gold standard laboratory testing to further investigate.
It is advisable to follow-up two to three weeks after the initial consultation and then at four to six week intervals to monitor, evaluate and discuss your progress, repeating and altering Wellness Programs and Prescription Care Packages where necessary.
Each person responds differently to their care plan depending on general levels of health and fitness, financial investment and commitment. It can take time, patience and discipline to see long-term body-mind changes, especially in complex or chronic cases and unresolved conditions or situations.
Step by step each appointment adds another layer to the healing process. If your situation is beyond my ability to tend, I will refer you to a practitioner who can better meet your needs.
