Sage & Ginger Services

At Sage & Ginger we are committed to empowering you to be your best self.

My Services

An initial consultation will be 1 hour to 1 and half hours and will involve a comprehensive health assessment including an analysis of your tongue, nails and eyes. Details of your lifestyle, including stress levels, diet, environmental influences, medical history including relevant family health history will be recorded, any physical signs and symptoms will be assessed. Functional pathology testing may be required to determine the underlying cause of your health concerns.

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is based on the principle that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself given the right support. The principles of natural medicine are applied to determine a therapeutic treatment plan to address your health and wellness needs. Dietary modifications and lifestyle advice will be provided to enhance the body’s ability to heal. Supplementation of herbs, teas, flower essences and nutritional products may be necessary at the start of treatment in order to provide additional support to the body during the healing process.

Nutrition

An initial consultation will involve a comprehensive health assessment including an analysis of your tongue, nails and eyes. An evaluation of what you currently eat will enable me to determine any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to your health condition.

I believe that nutrition is more than the food we eat and using evidence-based research and a focus on ‘whole-food’ eating, you will be shown the importance of true nutrition and ‘food as medicine’ and not just simply using ‘food as fuel’ to provide the recommended daily amounts of nutrients.

Have you considered where your food comes from? Has it been grown in a sustainable, pesticide-free way? Are you eating locally-grown foods, in season or supermarket produce that may have been stored for months, losing the valuable nutrients required for optimal health.

Simply by consuming fresh organic food, you can improve the state of your health, potentially eliminating allergies, sensitivities, fatigue and improving your immune system. As everyone’s body responds differently to food depending on what, how, when and why you eat, I will support you to find a way of eating that is right for you. Not a diet, but a ‘whole-food’ eating program.

Iris Analysis

Digital photographs using an iridology camera are taken of your eyes and included in a report that will detail your inherited constitution and potential areas of weakness pertaining to your health. The report will be emailed directly to you.

Australian Bush Flower Essences

Flower essences have been used for centuries as an effective way to address emotional issues that may be hindering your path to health by restoring a sense of harmony in mind, body and spirit. They work by influencing subtle energy systems as the flow of energy passes through meridians and chakras, impacting consciousness and stimulating a correction in any energetic imbalance. Used as part of a routine naturopathic treatment plan if required, a flower essence consultation may also be taken separately. The consultation will take approximately 30 minutes and an appropriate blend of flower essences will be provided.
