‘Alitura’ is a latin word meaning ‘feeding, nourishing’ and ‘nature’. As a Naturopath, I believe in ‘The Healing Power of Nature’, which I incorporate strongly into my Practice. The healing power of nature is one of the six foundational principles of Naturopathy which recognises the human body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. This begins at the cellular level. The focus of an initial treatment with me aims to identify and remove any obstacles to optimal health and to facilitate the natural healing ability in the individual.

Alitura Health incorporates the Ginseng leaf in its logo that strongly reflects another of the six foundational principles of Naturopathy; ‘treat the whole person’. Multiple factors contribute to your health, including diet, lifestyle, genetics, spirituality, environmental issues and more. The herb ‘Ginseng’ has deeply rejuvenating, restorative and strengthening properties that work to elevate the health of all bodily systems: mind, body, spirit. Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb with uplifting and energizing properties, aiming to restore the individual on all levels. It is also a useful herb in improving sports performance which is a personal passion of mine. Whether you are a gym junkie, weekend warrior or athlete, I aim to energise and improve your athletic abilities and help you get results and achieve your goals.

Chinese Emperors once valued the Ginseng plant more than gold.
I believe we should value our health more than gold!

My journey to working in the health industry began in 2009 when I first began studying as a Naturopath. My qualifications are in Naturopathy, Nutritional Medicine and Western Herbal Medicine. I have worked in Clinical practice since 2012 alongside great Naturopaths, Integrative GP’s, Holistic Chiropractors and many other amazing Practitioners that have helped shaped my journey.

My Naturopathic treatment uses therapies that are gentle, non-invasive, effective, and do not have adverse side effects. My role throughout your health journey is to educate, motivate and empower you to engage actively in restoring and managing your own health. As a naturopath I will aim to uncover, evaluate, and address relevant obstacles to healing and focus on identifying the underlying cause(s) of your health concerns. I take extra time with my patients and provide highly individualised care and personalised therapies specific to your genetics, nutrition status, lifestyle, and capacity for implementing suggestions, not just a set of instructions to follow. I look forward to sharing your health journey with you!
