Preconception Care

Preconception Care

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster It is well documented that the health of prospective parents plays an enormous bearing on the health of their future children. Our naturopaths provide support, information, education and dietary advice to help couples prepare for conception to ensure the healthiest bub possible.

Fertility Treatment

Fertility Treatment

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Our practitioners are some of the best trained fertility naturopaths in Australia. Treatment for each couple is always individualised and unlike the conveyor belt treatment often experienced with orthodox fertility treatment, our naturopathic approach seeks to identify and treat the specific needs of each case.  Working alongside a GP, Dr James Latto who has  3 decades of experience in addressing fertility and reproductive health issues,  our approach aims to identify both physical and pathological barriers to conception as well as optimising health to shorten time to conception.  Our practitioners recognise there is no ‘one size fits all’ treatment for fertility concerns  and individualise treatment accordingly.

Women's Health

Women’s Health

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster From teenage years to menopause and beyond, women’s health and hormonal balance can be greatly aided by accurately prescribed nutritional supplemtation, herbal medicine and dietary advice.  Our practitioners are experienced in addressing issues such as PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, amenorrhoea, period pain, menorrhagia, recurrent thrush, menopausal complaints as well as helping women to age proactively in terms of osteoporosis prevention. A women’s life is NOT meant to revolve around conditions such as heavy periods, mood swings, pain or discomfort, these are NOT an inevitable part of being a woman! Our practitioners have helped countless women to be liberated from debilitating hormonal conditions and to experience how a healthy reproductive system should be.

IVF Support

IVF Support

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster IVF can be a very stressful time for couples and utilising naturopathic treatment can shorten the road to conception. Improving general health, addressing weight issues and addressing stress and its negative impact on the body can greatly benefit a couple undergoing IVF. More and more research is highlighting the impact that diet plays on IVF success and our naturopaths apply this research in addressing dietary requirements and nutritional support.  For male reproductive issues, particularly those concerning problematic sperm parameters or DNA fragmentation issues, diet and professionally prescribed nutritional supplementation can greatly improve your chance of a successful outcome.

Pregnancy Care

Pregnancy Care

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Our naturopaths work with our pregnant patients throughout the three trimesters of pregnancy to ensure optimal nutritional support. Addressing key areas such as iron levels, vitamin D levels, the prevention of gestational diabetes, healthy and not  excessive weight gain, preparation for breastfeeding,  preparation for labour and to ensure our patients are in the healthiest state for their start to motherhood.

Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding Support

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Our naturopaths provide care and support for breastfeeding mothers. Addressing diet and using supplementation or herbal support where necessary, our practitioners can make this often ‘bumbly fumbly’ time easier for both mum and bub.  Improving milk supply and addressing maternal anxiety are often key areas where we work to help a mum to establish good breastfeeding. We work also closely with lactation consultants when needed to ensure our patients get the best care possible to try and make this time as easy and stress free as possible.

Postpartum Support

Postpartum Support

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Once a baby is born our naturopaths continue supporting both mum and bub. Conditions such as post natal anxiety, mood swings and fatigue can be addressed successfully using naturopathy.  Ensuring good nutrition in this time is essential for mum to be in optimal health for motherhood.  Checking nutritional status postpartum is part of our care, looking specifically at ensuring healthy nutrient levels such as iron and vitamin D as well as carefully addressing thyroid function.  Our aim is to support mums during this time to make motherhood as easy as possible.

Introduction to Solids

Introduction to Solids

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Introducing solids to a baby is more than just deciding what foods to begin with.  This is a time of using foods to nourish a young growing body and setting up an approach to food for life.  We address what foods are appropriate at what stages as well as looking at the philosophy around healthy eating. Our ultimate aim is to help mums raise kids that can eventually make their own healthy food choices so mum never needs to become ‘the food police’! We also educate parents about common nutrient deficiencies seen in the younger years and how to use foods to ensure optimal nutrition at all stages.

Children's Health

Children’s Health

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster We treat a huge number of children at our clinic, the in-house joke is that as we work in the area of fertility we breed our own patients! Our practitioners have a wealth of experience treating all areas of children’s health. We treat new borns with colic and reflux, we treat from babies to teenagers with constipation, we treat behavioural issues seen in all ages of children, kids with poor focus and concentration, sleep issues, skin complaints, weight problems, sugar addictions to name but a few. Helping children is perhaps the most rewarding area of naturopathic practice as kids respond so well to treatment and by making a difference at a young age we have prevented health issues from becoming chronic concerns.

Athletes

Athletes

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster Good nutrition is often the foundation of athletic success. We see a large number of athletes struggling with trying to find their way through the mass market of sports advertising and sports supplements. Helping structure a healthy diet to accommodate specific needs we help althletes perform at their best as well as improve their immune systems to prevent falling apart prior to competitions.

Men's Health

Men’s Health

City-Beach-Naturopathic-Centre-Anna-Sangster As well as the work we do with male fertility issues our naturopaths treat many health areas that commonly concern men such as prostate issues, bowel health, reflux and heart burn, cholesterol issues, high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, weight gain around the abdomen,  anxiety and stress related disorders.  Naturopathic treatment often prevents the poly-pharmacy we see so commonly where aging men seem to be taking more and more medication for conditions they could treat naturally. We also work in the area of preventative care addressing  conditions that run in families to prevent them ever being an issue. Conditions such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain are NOT an inevitable part of aging and our naturopaths work with our patients to prevent these issues ever becoming a problem!
