Lauren is a Bachelor level qualified Naturopath specialising in Gastrointestinal complaints. She has dedicated her work to functional gastrointestinal conditions such as SIBO, IBS, Dysbiosis, idiopathic Constipation and IBD with a keen interest in the Microbiome.
Lauren also has a keen interest in women's health, hormones, thyroid the reproductive cycle and fertility. Especially when combining gastrointestinal health and the endocrine system she sees the most significant results in her patients.
As a Naturopath, Lauren takes an in-depth case history and utilises functional testing where necessary to investigate and identify what's driving the condition or symptom picture - These include:
- Functional pathology
- Breath testing - To identify SIBO and food intolerances
- Stool testing - Including diagnostic gastrointestinal markers and metagenomic-driven gut microbiome insights (the most advanced form of testing available)
- Organic Acids for metabolic profiling, microorganism and mould identification, detoxification, neurotransmitter metabolism and more.
Utilising this technology she is able to identify the root cause of the complaint and apply the most effective and targeted treatment.
