Hi, my name is Kaitlin Bates and I am from Ararat, a small country town in Western Victoria. I am a qualified Naturopath and over the last few years have been developing my knowledge base through education and experiences.
Personally, I started my own health journey in the conventional manner, going to the Doctor and Specialist, where not one person knew what the cause was and just treated the symptoms, not realising those same treatments would cause me continued health problems. At the suggestion of a relative, I began researching and discovering ways to help my own health naturally, through herbs, supplements and diet and lifestyle changes.
Now, my own experience had led me to an amazing career choice where I continue to expand my knowledge and discover new things everyday. I would love to help you discover this world and realise that you don't have to live every day unsure about what is going on in your own body.
WHAT CAN I HELP WITH?
- Crohn's and Coeliac disease
- Cold and flu
- Immune system function
- Joint health
- Hormonal imbalances
- Weight loss
- Irritable Bowel
- Digestive conditions - bloating, nausea
Naturopaths can help the body to heal and maintain an optimal level of health, through herbal medicine, supplements, dietary advice and lifestyle changes. As each person is different, an unique, tailor made treatment plan is researched and devised with you specifically in mind. As we all know there is no such thing as a quick fix, the journey to wellness is a long and bumpy road, and a Naturopath is with you every step of the way.
Naturopath's aren't doctors, but they can give you alternative methods to treatment to reteach the body how to heal. We ask a variety of questions, that may seem unconventional and pointless, but in reality give us a well-rounded complete picture of your health and how each body system is working, from your head to your toes and from the inside out. We discuss family history, diet, lifestyle, stress, sleep as well as each body system. We look at physical signs as well, including the eyes, tongue and nails to help determine what is going on in your body. There may also be a request for further testing
