Woodvale Naturopath – Kim Allen
My interest in Natural Medicine began more than a decade ago after completing a short course in Aromatherapy. I developed an interest in health from a young age and loved the philosophy of Natural Medicine, that by understanding the underlying cause of why we are not well and then addressing those causes, we could make a positive difference in all areas of life rather than simply treating the symptoms.
Having a Naturopathic Consultation is a great way to gain insight into your current state of health, understand how you got there and more importantly, what tools and techniques can be used to improve it. This may include diet & lifestyle adjustments, herbal and nutritional supplementation, mental & emotional support and, if needed, referral to other health practitioners. My main aim with any consultation is to understand how you wish to improve your health and then work with you to find the best way to achieve that. I am also a big believer that life is about balance and health changes should be realistic and made to make life more enjoyable, not less!
A Naturopath can assist you with many things including managing stress, hormonal imbalance, digestive trouble, low energy levels and sleep problems, however no health concern is off limits. If you are not experiencing any specific health difficulties, but simply want to learn more about what you can do to enhance your health and wellbeing, a consultation can be a valuable ‘maintenance tool’ in keeping track of how you’re doing.
I am also pleased to announce that Supplement Review appointments are now available. This style of appointment is shorter than a standard Naturopathic Consultation and is designed for someone who wants to ensure they are on the right track with any herbal or nutritional supplements they are taking, understand the correct way to store and use them and receive advice of any potential interactions with medications.
If making a positive change to your health with Natural Medicine feels like the right path for you, please do not hesitate to book an appointment to talk about how I can help you. I look forward to working with you soon!
