This Is Not Going Away

PPIs are one of the prescribed medications in Australia but the concerns are escalating.  Not just from a naturopathic or nutritional perspective regarding the extraordinary concept of lowering gastric HCl by approx. 80% but much much more worrying concerns.  I talked...

Could it be Reflux?

Chronic coughs, rhinitis, postnasal drip or even asthma?  Have you ruled out silent reflux? Aka laryngopharyngeal reflux. Patients experiencing silent reflux don't present with heartburn or any typical GORD features but ultimately suffer from a similar failure of the...

Learning the Language of Men’s Endocrine Health

  We should all be as skilled in investigating & treating male hormone imbalances as we are female ones, yet this is often not the case.  A lack of confidence in this area, which seems to be an issue for many, in particular will compromise our ability to question male...

Managing Your Random-Regulars

So often in mentoring I hear about patients practitioners have struggled to treat primarily because of irregular points of contact....you know the type, the client who is an Irregular Regular or Random Regular, booking in to see you just once or twice a year or just...

What’s New in K2?

It seems like K2 is the supplement on everybody’s lips right now and for good reason.  This is particularly true in Australia where we’re seeing a flurry of new K2 products on the market thanks to a relatively recent TGA approval for this particular form of the...

A Great Time To Be A New Practitioner

"Health issues are rarely one individual textbook condition like they were during my studies.  The interaction of the body is complex, and Rachel has given me valuable insight into how to link various pathology markers & physical aspects together.  Test interpretation...

Do you mind if I record our appointment?

I read an interesting news item in Medical Observer this week about the increasing number of patients either overtly or covertly recording medical appointments on their smart phones.  Have some of your patients already asked if they could do this?  Mine have and I’m...

You might have heard me talk about using an ‘upstream’ rather than ‘downstream’ approach in nutrition – the concept is very naturopathic… look at the water source and address things there rather than just tweak things downriver! One of the most important upstream...

Australia’s Food Intolerance & Allergy Guru Will See You Now!

I’ve booked my flights and packed my bags (at least in my mind!) already.  The annual Science of Nutrition in Medicine Conference is on 2-3rd May in Melbourne & there’s one name on the bill that alone I would be attending for – Dr Robert Loblay.  He’s the head of the...

The Sleep Prescription

How often do you find yourself writing sleep prescriptions for your patients?  I do – frequently. I’ll include in my recommendations something like – ‘nap for 20 minutes every alternate day’ or, ‘commit to getting into bed 1 hour earlier 3 nights this week’ or...

Another Piece of Naturopathic Nutritional Wisdom Goes Mainstream

Over 20 years ago (ouch!) while studying at Southern School of Natural Therapies, I heard for the first time that calcium perhaps had a ‘dark side’!  At the time, and still to a large extent now, calcium is publicly portrayed as something you simply can’t get enough...

New Mentoring on a Monday

Howdy everyone, thanks to popular demand (and perhaps something some people have against Tuesdays!! 🙂 ) we've opened up a new group on the 2nd Monday on every month at 1.30pm NSW time for mentoring.  It's brand-out-of the bag-kinda-new with a small group of...

Optimal Thyroid Function In Pregnancy?

Thyroid function is critical to successful conception, healthy pregnancies, babies and mum's post-partum wellbeing, so we need to take the time to ensure we’re monitoring it properly. First of all you need the right tool for the right job & that means we need...
