The best of both worlds
Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre uses the best of both medical and naturopathic treatment systems to ensure optimum health outcomes for each client.
Many people do not really understand what a Naturopath is. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that emphasizes prevention of disease and the self-healing process through the use of Natural Medicines.
Naturopaths usually set up their own clinic as each Naturopath may work differently depending on the areas they choose to specialise in, testing equipment they use, appointment time length, products and brands they use etc.
At Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre we work extensively with scientific testing. I also have a passion for blood pathology and prefer work as close as possible with GP’s to ensure that our clients are also up to date with all relevant medical testing. It is about using the best of both medical and naturopathic treatment systems to ensure optimum health outcomes for each client.
We also have access to private lab testing that is not covered under Medicare. This is for clients who prefer to just pay the lab directly for testing that they choose to have for investigation into their health issues.
Testing includes, but not limited to:
Blood Pathology – such as full serum chemistry, iron studies, thyroid studies, lipid studies, full blood count, vitamin B12, vitamin D, other vitamin levels, heavy metal testing in blood, cardiovascular testing; alternative thyroid testing (RT3); Adrenal Testing; Hormones and many more
Functional Pathology – saliva testing for adrenals and hormones; extensive stool sample testing and 5 day parasitology; Full Liver Detoxification Profile; heavy metal testing through urine or hair; pesticide testing;
In Clinic Testing – the latest in scientific equipment, used by the Australian Institute of Sport for testing Oxidative Stress (antioxidants compared to free radicals) – this can assess your risk of disease and aging quicker than necessary. It is a great anti-aging tool as well. This equipment can also monitor the effectiveness of detox programs by testing before and after.
Clients also have access to In Clinic Blood Screening for thyroid, testosterone, blood sugar, hormones for menopause and perimenopause, adrenals and many more.
Urine Biochemistry is also tested In Clinic.
Alternative testing includes: Integrated Iridology, Hair Testing 500 Items for Incompatibility; Bach Flower Readings; we also do spiritual balancing and Reiki for those people interested in this line of therapy.
