How Naturopathy Can Help With Your Chronic Pain

How did you find Genevieve?
I searched the Hills District Mums FB group for a recommendation for a naturopath. I saw you could book online and made the appointment.
How were your pain levels before Genevieve started treating you?
I would describe it as chronic pain that severely impacted my quality of life on a daily basis. While looking at me you would not necessarily know it, I was in pain 24 hours a day. It was my normal.
How has your pain changed since you started treatment?
In less than 5 weeks I have achieved a significant reduction in pain levels. Instead of feeling like 20 years older, I am feeling younger.
What other changes have you noticed once you started treatment?
I have more energy. I have more mental clarity to tackle life in general and I have a more positive outlook.
What are you now looking forward to achieving in your life?
I am really excited to see where this health journey may take me. My health has been declining over the course of 15 years to the point that I suffer from multiple autoimmune conditions. Being able to manage them and becoming more active in general would be great. Even contemplating bike riding with the kids sent shivers down my back, but now I actually feel it could be possible!
Do you have any advice for others?
Keep trying. Keep looking for answers. I felt I was not living my best life in chronic pain and it was a unfortunate event that made me realise life can be very short and the time is now to try again. I am so thankful I got online and booked an appointment. I believe that each small positive change will add up and give me more energy and motivation to make even more positive long-term changes

How Naturopathy Can Help Asthma

How did you find Genevieve?
Genevieve was suggested by a friend.
How was your overall health before Genevieve started treating you?
I now have the tools to understand my varied personal health challenges and the support to take charge of areas that seemed out of my control.
How was your asthma before you started treatment?
Asthma sneaked up on me earlier this year and I went to see Gen shortly after diagnosis of moderate to severe asthma that required both Preventer, Ventolin and emergency care to manage.
What changes did you notice once he started treatment?
Gen gave me asthma specific supplements. The very day I began taking them I started feeling better, and about a week after taking supplements I realised I could try not using my Preventer medication, so in consultation with my GP I stopped using it.
I have not needed Ventolin or Preventer since then, even in response to known triggers in large doses! I am thrilled.
Do you have any advice for others?
You are in control, take charge by finding someone to help you find the keys to your improved health. Someone like Gen who will explore health from all angles including emotional, and work in conjunction with GPs to find the underlying issues unique to you.

How Naturopathy Can Help Chronic Skin Conditions and Rheumatoid Arthritis

I received this email from a client who I helped with chronic skin conditions and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Hi Genevieve, just a quick message to say thank you so much!  Even though I have only seen you twice now I have to say I am feeling so very good. Was out on the harbour (by invitation) the other day and got sunburnt on my arms.

I was waiting for the dreaded blister spots on my forearms …. and NOTHING!!! My family cant believe it as it was truly horrendous with any sun. My mum and younger sister both would like appointments in the new year. I’m really happy with this for them.

Long story but just wanted to say thank you so very much…. I have basically  lived inside  for 2 years because of RA pain and skin/sun problems and really feel free again. Never be able to thank you enough. Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas and New Years.

PS. Whatever is giving me the energy in the morning would love to have for the afternoon lol. I’m medication free (unbelievable) and swimming again, so happy  🙂

How Naturopathy Can Help With Nerve Damage

A couple of weeks ago I asked my sister Genevieve for some advice. I have had severe pins and needles in my hands. I’m only 33 years old and very fit and thought it might just something that would just go away.

It didn’t. I was waking up every night a number of times and would have to stand up and walk around to get feeling back into my hands. Most of the time I don’t even get the feeling fully back because I just want to go back to sleep.

After the first week of taking the product Genevieve prescribed I noticed that I was only waking up maybe once or twice and that when I sat up in bed the feeling in my hands returned in 30 seconds.

I am two weeks in and am starting to sleep throughout the night now. I still have pins and needles at times but can get rid of it in seconds as before it was taking me 20 to 30 minutes to return to normal.

How Naturopathy Can Help Seizures

I came across Genevieve quite by accident.  I had been seeing a naturopath for several months for my special needs daughter who had been having Grand Mal seizures every month from the period of June to the end of October 2016, hospitalised every time.  Up until the end of June my daughter had been controlled on a minor dose of anti seizure drugs for 2 1/2 years.

I decided to find a naturopath in my local area and I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Genevieve while shopping at my local shops. I immediately was given a appointment which was back in late September and have not looked back my daughter has only gone forward due to the knowledge of Genevieve.

My daughter was given several tests including a blood test for MTHFR which she was positive too and also a hair analysis for food allergies,this was a very informative test showing me the right and wrong foods for my daughter who is also a diabetic and on a gluten free diet. Genevieve suggested the GAPS diet I slowly eliminated several food categories which my daughter coped with very well.

We are now going into the third month seizure free and thanks to the care of the wonderful Genevieve and my amazing acupuncture who was referred to me by Genevieve our lives are slowly getting back to normal.

I would truly encourage anyone and everyone with chronic health issues to have trust and hope in Genevieve.

Genevieve cares about you as a person and makes you feel very comfortable.

Thank you Genevieve you have changed my daughters life my regret is that I did not come across you earlier in my daughters life.

How Naturopathy Can Help Stomach Problems

I met Therese at my youngest son’s playgroup. While our children played together we discussed health issues in children before turning to our own health stories. Not long after, Therese came to see me at my clinic and I helped her get back on the road to good health.

As a blogger who concentrates on life as a Swede living in Australia, she took to her blog to talk about how her health has improved in her post called The way back from years of tummy problems.

Here’s the opening lines;

“To live your life fighting pain is unfortunately way too common these days. No matter what type of pain you are suffering from the constant struggle or the roller coaster you are going through makes everyday life harder than necessary and it is easy to loose yourself in the battle. Today I want to tell you about my (in comparison to other pretty humble) story and what helped me to get where I am today. On my way to full recovery I hope! But to start I have to go back in time.”

Please click on this link to read her whole story on her recovery from stomach pains.

How Hair Testing Can Help Behaviour

It’s a short and sweet testimonial this time. One of my clients sent me this in a text message and said that I could share the news with the world.

“Hi just wanted to drop you a line, I cannot believe the change in Mia, she is the child I knew was there somewhere, she is so happy, she opened the fridge got out her juice and her “medicine” this morning, thank you so much for your help and guidance, This test was the best thing we ever did”

It is amazing how we can do a simple test like the hair test to analyse the root cause of your child’s behavioural issues, or what is the catalyst for their allergies or food intolerances.

If your child is having any physical or mental issues, why not bring them in for a hair test and I can see what we can do to change their life for the better.

How Naturopathy Can Help Type II Diabetes

How did you find Genevieve?

I had just been given fairly bad news from my endocrinologist about my kidneys and I sought advice (from as it turned out to be) Genevieve at the Vitamin Shoppe at North Rocks.

How was your health when you first came to see Genevieve?

I had been struggling to get my blood sugar under control (I am a Type 2 diabetic) and my results had just continued to get worse from the time that I had consulted the endocrinologist (my GP had been treating me prior to this). If my 3 month blood sugar reading had not improved when I went back to the endocrinologist then I was informed that I would be placed on insulin.

I had also lost my husband with terminal lung cancer 14 months prior to finding Genevieve and although there was no direct link established, I had recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called lichen planus. I had suffered periods of sub optimal mental health since having my son in 1992 and suffering post natal depression for 2 years prior to diagnosis. It was suggested that I may have pyrroles disorder. A thyroid test also showed my thyroid was not functioning correctly.

How has your health changed since you started treatment?

The first issue was to address my blood sugar levels and by the 3 month check this had reduced by 40% on previous readings. I texted Genevieve to thank her for her help in reducing this issue, and preventing me at this stage from need to take insulin.  Genevieve researched lichen planus and I am also taking regular medication to try and reduce the effects of this condition.

When I return for an oral biopsy they were unable to confirm this disorder and am being monitored every 6 months for possible developments which hopefully will not occur with naturopathic medication (raspberry leaf).

I have only recently started treatments for pyrroles and my thyroid. I have the utmost confidence in Genevieve’s advice on these issues and  will continue to follow her advice.

Do you have any advice for others?

I was absolutely astounded by my blood sugar results that were achieved and look forward to improved health in the future with Genevieve’s guidance.

My advice is to seek Genevieve out and soon (and never loose sight of her). She is a brilliant professional and I will continue to trust her with my heath. You absolutely should try this as it works!

A Natural Way To Treat Mosquito Bites

Before consulting with Genevieve, my 3 year old daughter, Willow, would get bitten by mosquitoes regardless of how much protection spray she would have on & within hours she would swell up, be itchy and very hot to touch.
We could only treat her with a antihistamine and a cream to try and stop the infection/allergy taking place. Usually within a day she would end up with cellulitis and need antibiotic treatment to get rid of the infection.
We found once stating the vitamin B1 it took about a week to notice she was getting bitten much less and within a few weeks bites were almost non existent. If she did get bitten the infection wouldn’t be as bad.
Every morning with her breakfast Willow would ask for her mozzie medicine. I would strongly recommend anyone who isn’t getting results with medical treatments to trust Genevieve and give her advice ago. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that help!

How Can Naturopathy Help Prevent Miscarriages?

How did you find out about Genevieve?

I have known Gen for nearly 7 years after we went to the same mothers group and started seeing her as a naturopath nearly 3 years ago but in between she has always given me great advice!

How was your health when you first came for an appointment?

After having 2 miscarriages and doctors being no help I was feeling completely lost.

How did Genevieve help you?

Gens first thought was to do a saliva test which showed how my hormone levels were not as they should be….she then prescribed various products…within a few weeks I started feeling different and I can now say I am now the proud mama of a 5 month old baby girl!!!!!!

It was not only this …it was the support throughout the pregnancy and she made sure I was at peak health and emotionally supported me through a very nervous and scary pregnancy!

How did your health change?

I credit Gen with the birth of my baby as the doctors were not finding anything wrong with me and she picked it up straight away!

How did Dan’s health change once he started on the treatment?

My hubby was on a lot of meds at the time we were trying to conceive and as normal doctors never look at the male.  Gen asked all the right questions so we then realised he needed to be looked at as well.  Gen prescribed some natural products to help with sperm production as well.

What advice do you have for others?

I would definitely recommend Gen….she is so thorough and looks at all areas of what might be going on …she is very knowledgeable and on top of that gives the emotional support on your journey.
