Practical Health Naturopathic clinic uses Iridology, patient history, blood screening and a Biometer for diagnosis and a combination of Diet, Nutrition and Supplements for treatment.
Is a non-invasive method that detects currents running through the body to show any imbalances, weaknesses or underlying causes of illness. I use the Biometer to test for,
- Toxins and Chemicals
- Hormone and Stress levels
- Vitamin and Mineral deficiency
It also indicates to me where the pathogen is located in the body or the organ that is under duress.
Blood Testing is a blood screening technique that allows you to see your own blood on a screen. This test is for seeing deficiencies, inflammation, oxidative stress, liver stress, leaky gut, parasites, allergies, immune status, viral/bacterial infection and much more.
Diet, Nutrition and Supplements
Diet often plays the key roll in a dysfunction found within a body system, therefore discussion about the foods you consume daily is very important along with the times you choose to eat and often food combining can cause acidic or alkaline reactions that may be counteractive to digestion. ‘Supplementation’ is often required for nutrient loading in order to change an imbalance within the body. The supplements I use are Metagenics, Bioceuticals, Blackmores, Brauer Professional, Apex, Orthoplex, Mediherb & Bioactive, plus other smaller ranges specifically designed for specific conditions. Often the body can be overloaded with or carrying toxins. The toxins may come from pesticides, parasites, bacteria, virus, stress or heavy metals. I can design a ‘Detox Protocol’ for you to implement to detoxify the body from the overload that you may be carrying. Once you have followed and completed a ‘Detox Protocol’ you can feel more energetic, less stressed, lighter, recover from pain /injury faster and simply enjoy a sense of wellbeing. Every condition that presents itself is due to an overload or imbalance within the body, that is why detoxifying and diet adjustment can greatly assist with correction.
Created by Geelong Therapist Thomas Ambrose Bowen (Tom Bowen 1916–1982). Bowen Therapy is a dynamic remedial bodywork technique that works on the connective tissue structures of the body. It is relatively gentle and can be very relaxing. It helps to rebalance and harmonise physical, emotional and energetic states and often results in fast and lasting relief from pain and discomfort.
It is applied using a series of specifically designated moves on the body. This activates and promotes inner healing resources so as to assist homeostasis of the body’s many systems.
Epidermal Cupping is used for two reasons. Firstly, when I can not release the muscle through massage alone, I apply the ‘Cups’ and then later return to work on the muscle. The second reason is to help with respiratory problems. The ‘Cups’ are placed upon the ‘Lung Points’ on the back to help draw out and dissipate the infection.
