This includes live blood analysis and an examination of your symptoms. Treatment uses interventions such as lifestyle advice (diet, exercise, counselling), herbals, vitamins and diet.

We are pleased to be able to take care of your health inside and out by providing the services of Naturopathy and Nutrition.
Why see a Naturopath?
Naturopaths are not an alternative to seeing a Doctor and we do not recommend a person ceases their medication. However, if you can use these natural approaches to improving your health, over time we hope that it allows you to have an evolving conversation with your GP about your medications as your health status improves.
What to expect from your Naturopath consult
During your initial one hour consultation, the naturopath listens to your specific health concerns and asks further questions on the history of conditions and issues you’ve faced. A Live Blood Analysis test (from a pin-prick blood sample) can be performed. This is where a sample of your blood viewed under a microscope and provides signs as to what may be happening within the body. For example, clues may be provided to indicate conditions such as anaemia, inflammation, liver stress, nutritional deficiencies. Together we work out a plan to assist the body to function optimally. Mimi also utilises functional pathology testing and genetic testing.
What to bring
The results of any recent tests. It is also helpful to start writing down a family history of illnesses for your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles.
