Women's Health

As women take on more roles in their lives (career woman, bread winner, mother, caregiver, wife, girlfriend just to name a few) they have less time to take care of their own health. This can lead to stress, fatigue, digestive disturbances and more often than not hormonal imbalances. 

Female hormone imbalances are common and more often than not – normalized in our society. Many women go through life believing certain symptoms (such as painful periods) are “par for the course”. However, heavy cramping, excessive menstrual flow and PMS are often signs of underlying hormone imbalances which may be linked to deeper root causes such as thyroid and gut disorders. 

The use of botanicals, nutrition and lifestyle changes can effectively treat these concerns by mitigating the burden stress, diet, chemicals, medications, inflammation has on hormonal balance. 

Women's health is a complex issue and needs an equally detailed investigation, it's not enough to say there is a hormonal problem, we need to link hormones to other lifestyle factors and heal the whole person.

I have completed post graduate training in Women's Health with Dr Andrew Orr and am part of The Experts Group specialising in PCOS, Endometriosis and Fertility. This gives me access to some of the best specialists in the field for diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Fertility Management

With many women leaving motherhood till later in life and with stress-loads increasing falling pregnant is not always that easy.

Luminous Health recommends a pre-conception care programme is begun at least six months prior to desirable conception. This includes a thorough consultation, education in charting methods, detoxification and addressing any underlying health issues affecting both partners in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle recommendations. 

Herbal and nutritional medicine has been found to be effective in promoting fertility by addressing underlying health issues. Our programmes can be utilized alone or work alongside and support IVF treatments. 

After birth naturopathic treatments can assist in lactation and re-balancing hormones or aid with post-natal depression. 

Luminous Health will cooperate with all other branches of medicine, referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
