Our goal is to educate, support and empower our clients to live healthier, happier lives.
Our focus is on Family Wellness, Women’s Health & Fertility and Weight Management.
You are assured of effective and professional care from our experienced, caring and knowledgeable practitioners that include Naturopaths, an Acupuncturist, a Clinical Hypnotherapist, a Remedial Masseur, Bowen Therapists and a Medical Intuitive.
One of our points of difference is the depth of investigation to identify and address the underlying cause or 'driver' behind a presenting health condition, rather than simply provide symptomatic relief.
We use quality, evidence-based practitioner-only products to maximise results.
We welcome clients from Metropolitan Melbourne, Essendon, Ascot Vale, Moonee Ponds, Strathmore, Avondale Heights, Brunswick and Pascoe Vale as well as Virtual Consultations with Skype, Phone or email.
I thought I better update you about our successful & safe labour and delivery of our baby girl. I would also like to thank you all for your support and education leading up to the day. We could not have asked for a better labour and more healthy and alert baby.
We welcomed our daughter into the world on Tuesday 17th February at 2.17am, a day earlier than her estimated \"due date\". Weighing 2.8082kgs & 49cm long.
The labour commenced on Monday morning at around 5 am starting with regular, 10 minute contractions.
Lily was born within an hour of getting to hospital. I did not get the GBS antibiotic injection , due to her being born so quickly after the waters broke. So excellent outcome.
I am proud to say that there was never a time I panicked, requested pain medication, abused my husband or asked someone to make it stop. I felt in control the whole time and calm & accepting of the process. It certainly hurt like hell at times, but all of my support leading up to the labour and helpful education certainly went a long way.
Lily cried out the moment her head came out & was lively from the get go.
I had no tearing or stitches, just some \"grazing\". I delivered the placenta on my own and did not need the injection.
We had a lovely supportive midwife as well, which made the process that much better.
Our daughter is very well, lively, strong and a crazy mad feeder. She has been sleeping well and a very good baby, so far.
I am happy to say I only had 2 Panadol for \"pain relief\" (what a joke) throughout the whole labour and took no pain relief after either.
So thank you all again, (especially around my final last attempt to get rid of my GBS bacteria).
I really appreciate all you input and I do feel like a real success story!
I just want to let you know that I have given birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday, Amelia Laurie. Thank you very very much for all your help. It\\\'s not over exaggerating when I say I could not have done the preconception and pregnancy journey without you and all your health advice a support. Amelia is the picture of health.
Labour went well and Amelia was born in 5 hours!
Thank you very very much again Doreen
Thank you again Doreen - you have been the best naturopath I have ever seen.
I am SO much better than a few months ago. Also I worked a shift today. I haven\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t had the health/ energy/ motivation/ clear mind to work for about 5 years!
Although I still am not 100%, I definitely am feeling better.
I can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t speak highly enough of Doreen\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s work. I came to her as a previously fit and healthy 49 year old woman who had been very unwell for 2 years following gallbladder surgery: having severe migraines, diarrhoea, fatigue, bad skin, no libido and feeling generally dreadful about life. Within weeks of treatment the diarrhoea had abated, my sleep and mood improved and within 3 months migraines had significantly reduced and my skin and everything else is well on the way to full recovery. I really enjoyed Doreen\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s thoroughness and her commitment to finding the root causes of issues and addressing them. I particularly appreciated her \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'leave no stone unturned\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' attitude when it came to trouble shooting tricky issues and I found her approach to file notes (starting with an overview of the goals that are important to me in life that my health needs to support) -very effective. I found Doreen\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s scientific rigor, coupled with a myriad of diverse alternative therapeutic modalities and her positive energetic approach a very powerful combination - she is very much a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'one stop shop\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' - which was very handy in getting my health back on track as quickly as possible when feeling time-poor. I highly recommend Doreen for anyone looking for a truly \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'best practice\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' practitioner. Her support team are also very warm and supportive as well as being very efficient and competent. A solid 10/10 all round!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"
Weight loss success story from a happy client today who has lost 32.2kg with us in 7 months!
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Thanks so much Doreen for getting my life back on track and helping me drop 32.2kg since June last year! I feel fantastic - more energy, less bloated as well as feeling more focused and motivated.
Your support and encouragement help be achieve my goals and improve my long term health. My starting weight was 125.4kg, today 93.2kg. I am so happy and appreciative!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"
I have been seeing Doreen for the past 2.5 years. Her knowledge and passion for helping her clients is second to none. I would highly recommend her! She has helped me through 2 pregnancies and I really appreciate the support she has given me before, during and afterwards.
You\\\\\\\'ve meant a lot to me in my healing journey with Chronic fatigue. (I rave about you to any who are looking for a naturopath).
You\\\\\\\'re one of only two doctors who helped me out of so many. You have a rare quality found in doctors (..people..). you connect with people without ego/no nonsense, and from there, help people because you\\\\\\\'re not blinded by this - you listen to people with precision to find the truth. I really appreciate you.
