I am a qualified naturopath and clinical nutritionist, with a wealth of experience in health spanning over 40 years. In 1976, I completed a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours at Monash University, majoring in Biochemistry and Microbiology. After I completed my honours research year, I was employed by the Royal Women’s Hospital located in Melbourne, Australia, as a bacteriologist. I worked there for several years before leaving to start a family. After my children married, when I should have considered retirement, I embarked on a 4-year full-time Bachelor of Health Science Degree (Naturopathy) course at Torrens University. My unique tertiary university education and clinical experience have provided me with the knowledge and passion to treat such conditions as bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the digestive system, such as SIBO and IBS, and other gut complaints. Indeed, I am one of a select group of practitioners who have been approved by sibodoctor.com and sibotest.com. I have also embarked on a comprehensive course of over 200 hours in Functional Immunology. This has been an invaluable course among others I have done, to address autoimmune issues such as the thyroid disorder, Hashimoto's. Furthermore, owing to the fact that I have been fortunate to train under the giants in genetics and nutrigenomics, such as Dr Ben Lynch, a pioneer and global authority in this field, and Australian experts, Dr Denise Furness, PhD, geneticist and nutritionist, and Carolyn Ludowsky of MTHFR Support, I am able to assess your genetic make-up and how this may impact your health, fertility, and other chronic conditions. Indeed, I am passionate about helping couples achieve optimum health and wellness to improve their chances for natural conception and healthy pregnancy outcomes. My goal is to improve your health, well-being and quality of life, by assisting you with evidenced-based dietary advice, lifestyle changes, natural medicines and nutritional supplementation. With my knowledge of genetics and nutrigenomics, immunology, and my extensive knowledge of biochemical pathways, microbiology and physiological processes of the body, I can recommend and design a nutritional and lifestyle program that suits your unique genetic profile and your clinical history. As a solution-oriented health detective with a passion and knowledge in nutritional biochemistry, immunology and the microbiome, I seek to uncover and treat any underlying causes to your health conditions, rather than merely concentrating on alleviating the presenting symptoms. Ultimately, while the chances of totally changing the mindset of the general population is unlikely, I am determined to IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF ONE INDIVIDUAL AT A TIME.
