Are you flat out caring for everyone around you while on the inside, underneath your brave face you are really struggling?
You’re tired of being tired and know you should feel better than you do.
You feel overwhelmed, stressed and emotional when what you really want is an energetic, vibrant and fulfilling life.
You’re ready to commit to taking the first step, but you know you need someone in “your corner” to guide you along. To be the support for you that you are already offering to everyone else.
Or perhaps you’re looking for support for your child?
You are doing everything you can for them, but thing’s aren’t quite “right”.
They struggle to sit still and concentrate at school and you’re constantly getting phone calls because they are disrupting the class. They have angry and emotional outbursts and are struggling with learning. You know it’s not their fault, but you need the support and guidance of someone who understands. Someone who has walked that path themselves.
I understand, and I am here to help you.
Here at Assertive Health, I like to offer the best of both worlds. Combining traditional medicine practices that have been backed up with scientific research to ensure you receive optimal care and achieve your health goals as easily as possible.
In addition to taking a thorough health history, I offer a diverse range of testing to make sure we uncover the root cause of your health issues so that we are not merely addressing symptoms, but actually addressing the underlying drivers of your dis-ease.
I highly value confidentiality and discretion so that I can provide you with a safe and nurturing environment.
An Holistic Approach
I combine the latest in evidence-based medical research with traditional knowledge to optimise your health outcomes, assessing you as a whole person, including the impact of your environment.
We are all unique, and as such we all need a unique approach to our own health care. When you come to Assertive Health, you will receive a comprehensive health appraisal so that we can discover your unique requirements, and I will develop a fully individualised program to suit your specific needs.
A Sustainable Approach
It’s so easy to be overwhelmed when faced with change. I believe in taking small, achievable steps towards your goal that you can easily implement, leading to sustainable lifestyle changes that you’ll be able to stick to for the long-term.
My role is to guide and mentor you along your journey towards long-term health. I take pride in educating my clients so that they can make healthier decisions for themselves and their families. My goal is to empower you to live a healthy and vital life with high quality nutritional information that you can trust.
All of my treatment plans begin with food. What you eat forms the very basis of your health. I only recommend supplementation when it is specifically needed, and only recommend high quality, well-researched products produced under the strictest of conditions.
At Assertive Health, you are never alone. Ongoing advice and support is always an integral component of your treatment plan.
My focus is on optimising your mental and physical wellbeing through a whole person approach and optimising the functioning of your mind and body through a therapeutic diet, complemented with vitamin, mineral and herbal supplementation.
As a fully qualified Nutritional Medicine Practitioner and Naturopath, I understand the holistic nature of our bodies, and how they work as a whole, rather than as compartmentalised systems.
My focus is on optimising your gut health through therapeutic diet, supportive lifestyle choices, and vitamin and mineral supplementation where necessary to optimise your brain function and overall well-being.
Good health begins in the gut. A plethora of preventable illnesses in addition to mental health, behavioural difficulties and even autoimmune diseases have all been scientifically linked to poor gut health. When the delicate balance of your gut bacteria is disturbed, in addition to nutritional deficiencies and inflammation, you have a perfect storm for poor health and disease.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
