Throughout our lives and with living in the 21st century, our hormones can become quite out of balance. This often leads to pain and discomfort. Our hormones can also potentially lead us down the road to more serious health concerns if we do not balance them. During Peri-menopause and Menopause hormones can really become imbalanced leading to so many undesirable signs and symptoms.

A Comprehensive D.U.T.C.H. Hormone Assay is a very accurate test and shows us a snap shot of what all your hormones and doing. This enables us to use holistic approaches and natural medicines to bring the hormones back to balance to relieve your discomfort now and potentially prevent health concerns in the future.

Using this information and preparing a program personalised to you and the results from your Hair Mineral Analysis can have you feeling the best you have felt in years!

pH Testing

Our body is always striving for a state of balance known as homeostasis.  Stress and lifestyle often make our body too acidic, often throwing our system out of balance.  Our body tries to correct this acidity by releasing calcium from the bones, placing it into circulation in an attempt to buffer this acidity.  After years of acidity we may find ourselves developing Osteopaenia or Osteoporosis amongst other health concerns.  Alkalising our system and returning it to ideal balance can make us feel brand new on so many levels. 

Let one of our team of caring, highly qualified practitioners get your pH back into ideal range!

Zinc Testing

Zinc is one of the most utilised minerals in the body. It is responsible for thousands of metabolic processes and  is instrumental in the wellness of your body’s cells and immunity.

A simple in-clinic test can determine the status of your zinc levels, allowing us to return you to your ideal range.  This ensures that your body and immune system are working optimally.

Other tests for your wellbeing are also available.  The correct testing procedure can be ascertained and discussed with you at your next naturopathic consultation.

At the clinic it is common for us to receive little thank you notes from appreciative clients. It is a wonderful feeling to know we have helped someone and made their lives better.

“I have been a client of Tracie’s at the Sutherland Shire Naturopathic Clinic for quite a few years.  During my consultations with Tracie,  I have had  Iridology, an Indican Urinary Analysis and pH test to assess the health of my digestive and immune systems. Tracie personalised programs for me, I commenced treatment and have never looked back. It was picked up that my liver and kidneys weren’t working the way they should be.  Tracie corrected the imbalances with her wonderfully healthy natural remedies. Using Iridology, she even picked up my pain and straining from a previous injury which was very impressive and has now been relieved. From Iridology to just my normal check ups, Tracie has really helped me with the knowledge and many years of experience  she carries within this field, I couldn’t imagine how my body would be from the inside out if I didn’t have Tracie on my side. I thank her from the bottom of my heart as I am a completely different and healthy young woman again. “
