Discover Our Difference and start embodying your true healthiest self today.
WHAT TO EXPECT
An initial appointment with Natalie involves understanding your current and previous health conditions. It will take between 1-1.15 hr hours, depending on your consultation type.
At this time, your medical history and general lifestyle will be reviewed to determine a naturopathic treatment regimen suited to your individual needs. We will also conduct several tests to help measure your body’s health.
Diagnostic procedures such as physical exams and blood and urine analysis may be required to establish a treatment and health-promoting program. Naturopathy is suitable for everyone, from infants to the aged.
Some testing is included in the initial price and may include:
- Zinc Tally test
- Health Appraisal
- Blood Pressure
- Tongue and nail analysis
- Other Screening Tools
Natalie is trained to employ safe and effective natural therapies that will support and stimulate the healing power of nature in the gentlest, least invasive, and most efficient manner possible. She will use a wide range of innovative methods to assist in the healing process, including herbal medicine, nutrition – diet and lifestyle recommendations, vitamins and minerals, flower essences, homeopathy, hair, tongue, and nail analysis, laser therapy/acupuncture, and VEGA assessment.
Any prescribed homeopathic treatment will last from one to three months
Natalie recommends only the highest quality, most effective products. That’s why she uses specific ‘practitioner-only products’ for optimal nutrition. These include the Metagenics supplement range.
Functional Pathology Tests
These tests may be required for further diagnosis. These tests are not covered by Medicare, so you need to pay for them, whether through a Doctor or through Natalie (it is the same price).
These tests may include:
– Hormone testing through saliva or urine shows the different oestrogen metabolites not picked up by the blood.
– Adrenal Stress – measured by saliva cortisol levels throughout the day.
– Thyroid test including T4, T3, reverse T3 and antibodies. Most doctors only test TSH, which doesn’t give you all the necessary information.
– Iodine Urine (an essential nutrient for the Thyroid).
– Pyrrole Urine Test
– Allergy / Food intolerance Testing
– Pfeiffer Profile – includes Vitamin D, Zinc and copper ratios, whole blood histamine, and homocysteine.
– MTHFR Gene Testing
– SIBO breath test for gut health –
– Comprehensive Digestive Stool analysis
Natalie will tailor your tests and treatment plan to suit your individual needs taking into account your budget requirements.
She is gifted at explaining in simple terms the biochemistry of your body and why you may need support.
It can be a lot of information in one sitting, so she gives handouts to take home with you to read.
FOLLOW-UP NATUROPATHY VEGA CONSULTATION
During this 45 minutes appointment, you will be provided with information outlining the findings of your test results, a comprehensive treatment plan, and relevant information for you to read. We will also discuss any supplementation you may require (supplement costs apply).
Achieving wellness is about achieving balance in all areas of your life. A simple and effective personalised health and well-being program will be designed to encourage, motivate and support you to achieve your health goals.
Vega follow-up appointments are usually between 1-3 months apart, depending on your health requirements. Any tests required to be performed at follow-up appointments are an additional cost to the consultation fee.

Other appointment times and ZOOM/Skype/phone consultations are available upon request.
ZOOM and Skype CONSULTATIONS
ZOOM and Skype Naturopathic consultations are a great way to connect without worrying about travelling. It’s the same experience as if you were sitting in the clinic, face to face.
Zoom and Skype allow you to be more flexible with available consultation times, which are not restricted to clinic hours. This is especially helpful if you work 9-5.
To get started with a ZOOM or Skype consultation, firstly, you’ll need to have downloaded ZOOM or Skype on your computer, phone, or iPad (device); go to the ZOOM and Skype webpage for more information:
Once you have created a ZOOM account, you’ll need to do the following:
- I’ll send you a meeting ID provided.
- Click Join.
- If this is your first time joining from Google Chrome, you will be asked to open the Zoom client to join the meeting.
Once you have created a Skype ID, you’ll need to do the following:
- Add me to your contacts list (please do this before our real consultation time). My Skype ID is foxynat19.
- I will then add you to my contact list as well.
- At our arranged consultation time, you’ll need to be on your device & logged into Skype (status: online). I will video call you.
Once the consultation finishes, any information that has been discussed, a proposed treatment plan outlining any suggestions &/or instructions, and an invoice will be forwarded via email. I will advise you through your treatment plan of any supplements to be purchased and will arrange postage via Australia Post or a patient script sent via Metagenics or Simpleclinic.
Payment for the ZOOM and Skype consultation can be made by direct deposit online or by credit card (before consultation).
Please note that for the consultation to run smoothly, it’s essential to have a good internet connection. If not, it can lead to distortion and issues with the clarity of sound & video. If this continues to happen, the consultation will be concluded over the phone.
Please also feel free to email me if you have any further queries.
Only the best practitioner-only supplements are used. Most are made in Australia under strict TGA regulations. The strengths are therapeutic and unavailable in conventional health food stores, supermarkets, or pharmacies. Many are of a quality far superior to the recommended Australian standard and will achieve the best health results possible.
This will ensure the best possible health and wellness outcomes for you.
