Practical Naturopathy, Homeopathy & Herbal Medicine
 

Meet Narelle

Naturopath and Classical Homeopath

I am a qualified Naturopath and Homeopath working in Melbourne's eastern suburbs for over twenty years and a mum of three.  With a background in Sociology and Psychology, I am able to understand each individual who comes to see me and offer personalised treatments.  There isn't a "one size fits all" treatment - everyone is unique and have different needs.

The aim is to guide and assist your body to restore itself to a state of good health with practical and affordable treatments to help you to feel really well.

Wellness is your greatest asset for a long and fulfilling life.

Feeling well is not just the absence of disease.  Feeling well is having the energy to finish your day.  It is sleeping well and allowing your body to rest and recover.  It is a clear mind and an even temperament.

 It is time to stop feeling average!  

 

Why Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is based on the principle that the body has the intrinsic ability to heal itself.  The role of the Naturopath is to guide and support your body to heal and restore a state of good health. 

So why Naturopathy?  Because Naturopathy is all about treating you !

Naturopathy takes all those niggling annoying symptoms that affect you on a daily basis and works to provide a supportive framework for you to feel really well.  Symptoms do not need an official name to be treated - a description of your symptoms is enough for a Naturopath to prescribe treatments.

Since every person is unique your initial consultation takes 90 minutes to allow time for all areas of your health to be assessed.  Then each medicine - be it herbal, nutritional or homeopathic - is customised to meet your individual needs.  This means each prescription you are given is personalised to your individual requirement thereby maximising the therapeutic success.  

Follow up consultations are scheduled in to review how the prescribed treatment is working and to ensure you are seeing benefits and improving.  Prescriptions are then modified and adjusted to take into account these changes.

Acute consultations are for both new and existing clients for any short term illness requiring symptomatic relief.  An acute illness is any illness or injury that develops suddenly and lasts only a few days or weeks.  Some examples of acute illnesses are colds, flu, earaches, gastro, acute muscle pain, acute joint pain, hay fever etc.  Symptoms are discussed and treatment is aimed at providing symptomatic relief.

 

During the current COVID-19 outbreak you may wish to use an acute consultation to support your immunity.

 

Naturopathy can treat or support many conditions and Narelle has extensive experience in treating many problems such as:   

Women's Health and Fertility

The barometer of a woman's health is often her hormones.  I help with specific reproductive conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis and menstrual problems as well as perimenopausal symptoms.  

 

 I also look at  balancing the entire hormonal system to ensure women feel a sense of balance across their entire cycle.

For women needing help with fertility I work with regulating your cycle and other underlying contributing factors (including your partner).  I also work with IVF and other Assisted Reproductive Treatments to give you the best chance at falling pregnant. 

Stress, Anxiety & Fatigue

The classic modern case of stress, exhaustion and anxiety.  That feeling of never being able to stop,  agitation, irritation, foggy thinking, poor memory, unrefreshing sleep and that general  sensation of being unable to cope.

 

Stress is an epidemic and with stress often comes anxiety - that feeling of agitation and irritation along with an inability to cope can be overwhelming and isolating.  

My treatment plans help with managing and preventing stress as well as improving your own overall wellbeing. Options are also offered for the acute and immediate times of feeling unable to cope.

Weight Loss

I offer individual dietary plans suited to your needs along with your own personal herbal prescription to help you along the way.
