Don’t Suffer With Symptoms Of Irritable Bowl, Come Speak To Your Local Naturopath in Perth!

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common condition in Australia that can affect how the bowel functions.  It can affect as many as one in five Australians at some stage in their lifetime and is more common in women.  The chance of developing irritable bowl is increased if a close relative has it.  Most people start developing symptoms of IBS during their late teens or early twenties.  Because the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are quite non-specific, many people suffer over the years with poor health, not knowing what condition they have.  Many people are unaware that natural treatment from a Naturopath can help improve their condition and health dramatically.  Our Naturopaths at Pure Health And Wellness Clinic in Perth aim to improve your overall health and wellbeing and are effective in treating and managing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome

There are many different symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.  The main symptoms can include:

  • abdominal pain or discomfort that is often relieved by passing wind or faeces
  • stomach bloating
  • chronic diarrhoea or constipation.
  • Symptoms can be worse around times of stress

Your Naturopath can help

  • Take history. There are a number of ways your local Perth Naturopath can help reduce your symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.  Not all people with irritable bowel suffer from the same symptoms, so the first thing your naturopath will do is take a full case history to truly understand your condition. This will allow your Naturopath to formulate an appropriate treatment plan specific to you and your needs.
  • Diet. One of the most important things your Perth Naturopath will discuss with you is your diet.  A major part of any naturopathic treatment plan for IBS is identifying specific foods that aggravate symptoms. Your naturopath can help develop a meal plan that excludes food sensitivities and intolerances while including all macro and micronutrients.  Your naturopath will also ensure there is plenty of fibre in your diet and remind you to always keep hydrated.
  • Herbal medicines to treat symptoms. Naturopaths possess extensive knowledge of natural herbal medicines from years of in-depth training.  They can formulate a natural medicine to treat specific symptoms such as diarrhoea or constipation.
  • Probiotics.  In some cases, the symptoms of IBS are caused by altered gut microflora.   In this case, appropriate pre and probiotics can help to restore the balance of bacteria in the gut, improving symptoms.  It is always important to speak to your Naturopath before taking and probiotics or probiotics, as contrary to what some people believe, they are not all the same.  Different strains work in different parts of the digestive tract and help in a different way.
  • Lifestyle.  Your Perth Naturopath will also discuss your lifestyle and how that may be affecting your overall health.  At Pure Health and Wellness in Perth, our aim is to improve your health and well being.  Our naturopaths may discuss appropriate and realistic lifestyles changes to improve your health and quality of life.  This may include things such as exercise or how you deal with stress.

Contact the friendly team at Pure Health and Wellness Clinic in Perth if you would like to know more about Irritable Bowel Syndrome and how they can help improve your health!


Your Perth Naturopath Can Help Manage Anxiety Naturally

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions experienced by people in Australia. As many as one in three women and one in five men experience anxiety at some stage in their lives.  If you or someone that you know may be suffering from anxiety, you should consider a visit to your local Perth Naturopath.

It is natural to experience some anxiety and stress at certain times in our lives such as during exams, starting a new job or other personal issues. However, usually, when the stressful situation passes, the feelings of anxiety disappear.  These symptoms of anxiety, however, do not completely disappear when people suffer from anxiety.   People that suffer from anxiety experience a number of symptoms that can have a crippling effect on their lives.

Symptoms of Anxiety

Symptoms of anxiety can develop slowly over time.  People that suffer from anxiety experience symptoms frequently and persistently and are not always connected to an obvious stressful event.  Symptoms of anxiety can be broken into three groups:

  1. Physical.  Quick breathing, restlessness, feeling tense, wound up and edgy, pain attacks, hot and cold flushes, racing heart, tightening of the chest.
  2. Psychological. Obsessive thinking, catastrophising, worry and excessive fear.
  3. Behavioural. Avoidance of situations that cause anxiety.

Your Naturopath can help manage symptoms of anxiety

Symptoms of anxiety can be triggered by heavy metal toxicity or an imbalance of zinc and copper levels.  Your Perth Naturopath can offer testing to measure toxicity, imbalances and deficiencies as well as allergies and sensitivities which can impact your emotional and psychological well-being.  Once your Naturopath has identified the imbalance, they can then come up with a suitable treatment to restore balance in your body.

In addition, your Naturopath can discuss other natural steps that you can take to improve your mental health.  These can include:

  1. Healthy Diet.  Certain nutrients are essential for good health and the maintenance of neurotransmitters in the nervous system.  Omega 3 fatty acids which can be found in some fish can improve symptoms of anxiety. Magnesium which can be found in dark, leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, yoghurt, avocados and bananas can control mood swings, irritability and stress.
  2. Exercise.  Not only is exercise great for your health, it also helps spend some of that nervous energy caused by adrenaline surges. Regular exercise can also help with difficulty sleeping.
  3. Avoid drugs and alcohol. Alcohol and drugs can contribute to an anxious state, creating imbalances in neurotransmitters and receptors in the brain.
  4. Finding ways to relax through meditation or yoga.
  5. Positive self-talk strategies.  Anxiety is made worse by negative self-talk that we tell ourselves.  Learning to identify negative self-talk and replacing it with positive self-talk can help you to re-think a situation.

Our team at Pure Health and Wellness Clinic is dedicated to helping clients achieve optimum health through a range of naturopathy, natural therapies and lifestyle changes.   We treat people at any stage of their lives, as adults or children.  Contact our friendly Perth Naturopath team to find out more.


Stop Googling Your Symptoms! Come Visit Your Perth Naturopath!

We all do it….. we feel unwell and we head straight to google to look up our symptoms.  We eagerly scroll through the google results to see what health problem we may have and what we can take to treat it!  In fact, a large proportion of Perth people are googling their symptoms rather than seeking health advice from a medical professional.

Googling your symptoms does not replace seeking professional help

While googling your symptoms is a relatively normal thing to do, it is important to understand the difference between researching online and seeking health advice from a medical professional such as a Naturopath.  When reading health information online, keep in mind that anyone can publish content online.  The information that you read can be inaccurate and cause unnecessary worry and stress.

Visit a Naturopath

Most people who attend naturopath clinics are searching for health answers.  They want to know how they can get well and stay well.  There’s no better way to do this than visiting a professional Naturopath.  Naturopaths offer a natural, holistic treatment that draws upon a range of complementary and natural medicines to help you get well and stay well.

What is a Naturopath?

A Naturopath is a highly trained medical professional that has attained a Bachelor Degree in Naturopathy.  Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the natural healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.

Common reasons to visit a Naturopath

There are a number of reasons that you might visit a Naturopath.  Just a few include:

  • Perhaps you have been feeling rundown and tired and unsure what to do about it.  Visits to the GP and medication have made some short term improvements but you still suffer from low energy.
  • You may be feeling stressed, anxious or depressed and you don’t want to rely on medications to help or are looking at other natural treatment options.
  • You may be seeking advice on how to improve your diet.  Or you think you have a healthy diet but find that certain foods make you feel unwell.

At Pure Health and Wellness Clinic in Perth, we are committed to improving the health and well being of our clients.  Our specialist team includes a Naturopath, Massage Therapist and two qualified Homeopaths.  Our experienced team use a range of natural treatments including naturopathy, homoeopathy, natural medicine, herbal medicine, nutritional support, hypnotherapy, aromatherapy and therapeutic massage.  Contact us at Pure Health and Wellness Perth if you would like to make an appointment, for more information or to book a free health assessment.

Stay Healthy This Flu Season By Visiting Your Perth Naturopath

It’s that time of year when we can feel the winter chill starting to creep into the air in Perth.  Time to unpack our winter woollies and stay warm with slippers and hot chocolate.  And while we all enjoy a little cold weather, we don’t enjoy the sniffles and coughs that come with it!  As the temperature drops and the nights get longer, the number of people in Perth with sniffles, coughs and sneezes slowly increases. Are you doing everything you can to protect the health of you and your family this flu season?  Read on for our tips from Pure Health and Wellness Clinic on how to protect and treat your family and make this your healthiest flu season yet.

The flu and the common cold

Both the common cold and influenza (the flu) are highly contagious viruses.  These viruses can be spread easily when you come into close contact with an infected person, or an infected person coughs, sneeze or blows their nose near you.

 

Symptoms of cold and flu

Many people have a hard time knowing whether they have a cold or the flu… especially since the symptoms of both are so similar.

  • Cold: Slow onset of symptoms, chesty cough, no fever, stuffy, blocked nose, sore throat, headache, no muscle pains, no chills
  • Flu:  Sudden onset of severe symptoms such as fever, chills and body aches, dry cough, fatigue.

 

Optimising your immune system is the best defence against cold and flu this winter

Here are some tips to help you boost your immune system and protect the health of you and your family

  1. Regular exercise.  One of the best ways to protect your health is to keep fit with regular exercise.  Avoid the temptation to snuggle up inside and stay active this winter.
  2. Stay hydrated. Drink water and clear fluids to stay hydrated and prevent viruses from adhering to the mucous membranes in your nose and throat.
  3. Manage your stress. Stress can decrease the ability of your immune system to fight off infection.  Try to keep your stress under control with rest time, meditation or music.  If you need help, speak to one of our Perth Naturopaths at Pure Health and Wellness Clinic.
  4. Eat well. Eat a diet rich in immune-boosting phytonutrients, such as those found in yellow, red and dark green fruits and vegetables.
  5. Talk to your Perth Naturopath at Pure Health and Wellness Clinic about other ways to boost your immune system

So you got sick…

Okay so you’ve tried your best, but you still managed to get sick.  Time to take it easy, look after your health and catch up on some Netflix.  If you are unwell, come and talk to us at Pure Health and Wellness Clinic.  At Pure Health and Wellness Clinic, we provide naturopathy and support during illness and times when you need to keep your health at its optimum.  At Pure Health and Wellness Clinic, we aim to improve your overall health and well-being.

What Is The Difference Between A GP And A Naturopath In Perth

Sometimes people wonder what the difference is between going to see a GP or a Naturopath in Perth. Today we are fortunate enough to have options when it comes to taking care of the health of ourselves and our family.

We have access to a General Practitioner (Doctor), we can get some very good health care and advice from our local pharmacist and we also have the benefit of choosing to see an alternative health care provider such as a Naturopath in Perth.

One of the most noticeable differences is the prescription pad! Many GPs will provide you with a script for drugs to treat whatever ailment you went to discuss, on the other hand a Naturopath will not give you a prescription for drugs.

Hypothetical Scenario

A middle aged man visits his GP complaining of constipation, feeling depressed and having trouble sleeping. His GP organises some blood tests to check on things.

On his return visit he finds that his cholesterol is too high and his blood pressure is also a bit high.

At the end of his consultation, the GP has prescribed, sleeping tablets, antidepressants, blood pressure tablets and laxatives.

If the same person went to see a Naturopath in Perth he would be treated very differently.

A naturopath will treat the person as a whole and look at everything that is going on in the person’s life which could be contributing to the poor health symptoms being experienced.

Naturopathic treatments take a holistic approach to treat any medical condition. The practitioner will seek to provide immediate relief of symptoms and the long-term reduction of its effects by implementing key lifestyle changes and eliminating root physiological causes.

There are many conditions that can be treated successfully with counselling, exercise & diet. Some of these conditions include:

Depression
Insomnia
Constipation
Cardiovascular disease risk factors

Treatment Options With Your Naturopath Perth

A qualified Naturopath Perth uses many types of natural medicine, therapies and treatment plans depending on the needs of each person, and here at our Pure Health & Wellness Clinic we use modalities which include;

Naturopathic care, which is a system of healing that relies upon natural, non-invasive treatment strategies including;

Nutrition – Nutritional medicine uses vitamin and mineral supplements to improve the body’s availability of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to prevent or combat illness or disease and return the body to its optimum state of health.

Herbal medicine – Herbal medicine is the use of plant-based remedies to treat and illness or bring the body back to its optimum state of health. Plants have a complex chemical nature, and they have been used therapeutically for thousands of years.

Aromatherapy – Aromatherapy uses essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds to achieve psychological and physical healing. Essential oils are either applied to the skin (in a diluted form) or inhaled to derive their benefit. An example of this is an eucalyptus inhalation to help alleviate the symptoms of congestion when suffering from a cold or flu.

Swedish Massage – Swedish massage also called classic massage – has shown to be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness, it increases the oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles.

Homeopathy – Homoeopathy medicine is based on the principle of like cures like, where substances that produce symptoms in a healthy individual can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. It is used as a means to stimulate the body’s ability to fight infection and susceptibility to disease.

Our team of well trained Naturopaths use various aspects of diet, rest and exercise to form a part of a personalised full naturopathy treatment strategy for each individual client, after completing the necessary clinical tests to determine exactly how their body may be moving away from it’s normal healthy balanced state.

Naturopath Perth Clinical Testing Methods

Our clinical testing methods include;

Saliva & Urine tests RBTI Analysis is a series of urine and saliva tests that help our naturopaths monitor complex body functions, the results of which can indicate problems with digestion and nutrient absorption.

Blood tests – live blood analysis is a useful tool that may identify factors contributing to health concerns.

If you have any concerns about the state of your health or that of a family member, please contact our Naturopath Clinic in Perth to make an appointment with one of our naturopathy practitioners.

Your Professional Naturopath In Perth

A Naturopath in Perth is a professional therapist who accesses your health from a holistic point of view, rather than from a disease or symptom aspect.

Naturopaths have a whole of body approach to disease, dealing with ill health and body dysfunctions by treating the person as a whole.

Qualified Naturopaths are trained in many fields of natural medicines and therapies including:

  • Herbal medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture
  • Nutrition
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Iridology

A chat with your Perth Naturopath will help to identify the cause of your symptoms and set you on a journey to better health and a life with less stress and disease.

I Am Always Tired, Should I Visit A Perth Naturopath?

If you are feeling tired and not your usual self most of the time, this is a very good reason to visit your local Naturopathy clinic.

You must always put your health first, so yes make an appointment to see your Naturopath as soon as you are able to.

A common condition of extreme tiredness is called Adrenal Fatigue, a little known condition that is often misdiagnosed by mainstream health professionals.

This misdiagnosis can mean that this condition is never treated and resolved properly, so many people just keep going about their lives feeling exhausted all the time.

Your Natural Health Clinic is just a phone call away and making an appointment to talk about your tiredness and fatigue or any other issues, can make a huge difference to how you feel every day.

There are many other causes of extreme tiredness such as:

  • Low vitamin B12 levels
  • Anaemia
  • Poor blood sugar control
  • Lack of sleep
  • Post viral fatigue
  • Bacterial diseases
  • Poor diet

Naturopaths are fully trained and highly qualified natural therapists, therefore if your tiredness is due to a medical condition that requires mainstream treatment, you will be referred to your general practitioner for further investigation.

Choosing Naturopathic care is not about choosing between traditional medicine and Naturopathy, as both treatment options can have their part to play in your well-being.

To make an appointment with a Naturopath at our Pure Health and Wellness Clinic in Perth, contact us on 08 9378 2774, email us on info@purehealthandwellness.com.au or complete our online enquiry form.
