Approach to Treatment
Julia enjoys working in partnership with her patients – assisting, supporting, motivating and mentoring you to achieve your own best health and well-being. Her focus during consultation is to listen to and understand your health concerns and symptoms. During your consultation Julia will take a detailed account of your symptoms, asking questions about all different areas of health (including diet).
These questions, together with iridology, tongue and nail diagnosis to assess areas of concern, will enable her to develop a comprehensive picture of your health, successfully ascertain and address the cause of your ill health and develop customised treatment. Julia may also request other tests, if required, such as blood tests, stool analysis, salivary hormone testing, and food sensitivity testing.
This thorough approach allows Julia to make an accurate assessment of your health, from which she develops an individual treatment plan to suit you and your needs. This may include prescription-strength natural medicine supplementation (minerals/ vitamins/ herbal medicine) and nutrition and lifestyle counseling.She enjoys educating her patients so you understand your own health, feel informed, encouraged and thus empowered to take an active role in your own health.
