How often do we stop to think - were periods meant to be this painful? Was menopause meant to be this unbearable? Do I have to just accept that I get thrush after taking antibiotics? These problems and many others are definitely common, as natural health practitioners we think it's important to make the distinction between normal and common. We definitely don't think you should accept an ongoing health issue just because it's common.
We are passionate about helping you to turn your health around so you can live a life full of energy and free of the problems of hormonal imbalance.
The youngest members of our families are the most sensitive to falling unwell in rapid and dramatic ways. Thankfully, they are also prone to recovering in an equally rapid fashion. Because of their responsiveness, children generally require a lot less intervention than adults. Our practitioners have experience in working with children of all ages, from just a few days after birth, and throughout infancy and childhood.
We've worked with couples at all stages of their fertility journey for over a decade, working with couples who are wanting to conceive naturally, and those who are undergoing IVF treatment.
We believe the best outcomes are achieved when both you and your partner are on the journey together. Fertility problems can put enormous strain on a relationship, and working together as a team in this process can help to strengthen your relationship rather than it be a source of stress and pressure on your relationship.
