Use the power of nature to improve your health and wellbeing.
The Naturopaths at My Wellness Centre have undertaken formal tertiary studies to become qualified registered practitioners.
Whilst it is often referred to as alternative medicine, Naturopathy originated in the late 1800s as a collective means by which to reduce or prevent disease using natural methods.
Naturopathy is based on six key principles:
- Do no harm
- Treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptom
- Treat the whole person, not just their ailment
- Use the power of nature to heal
Naturopathy can be used to treat a wide range of health issues:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Allergies and sensitivities
- Mood disorders
- Musculoskeletal complaints
- Reproductive & fertility
And much more…
What can I expect?
Your practitioner will advise how lifestyle choices such as eating whole foods and eliminating toxins from your body can dramatically enhance your health and wellbeing.
Original naturopathic practice is based on the belief that poor health prevails when the core or chi energy is depleted; that when the body is devoid of naturally derived vital nutrients and/or inundated with chemicals/drugs/toxic lifestyle, disease becomes established.
Naturopathy focuses on the fact that the body has the ability to heal itself, given the right conditions. As chronic disease has become more common, naturopaths are developing the skills to work side by side with the medical doctors.
Prevention however, is the key: preventing increase in symptoms and more importantly, preventing onset of disease in the first place.

Whole Food Supplementation
Are you getting enough nutrients in your daily intake of food?
Most people are only getting 30-60 nutrients per day in the foods they eat. We require 90+ for ultimate health and wellbeing. Soil erosion, loss of top soils, and artificial fertilization are the main reason why our foods are mineral deplete. Stress, processed foods and an ever increasing amount of environmental pollutants contribute to today’s poor nutrient uptake into the cells.
What is the most deplete nutrient in our foods?
Minerals – macro, micro, trace and ultra-trace minerals. What do minerals do? Minerals influence all our biochemical pathways to break down foods, remove waste and provide us with energy.
Why are minerals deplete in our foods?
- The problem with our soils began since man occupied new territories 300 years ago and changed the land surface.
- Then with agriculture in the past 150 years, the soils have become mineral poor, even with added fertilizers.
- These fertilizers do not contain ultra trace minerals. Mostly they contain only NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium).
The top soils are gone …. out into the ocean.
Sea salt has 84 trace minerals. We need all of them for optimal health & wellbeing. However, the minerals in sea salt are in their inorganic form. Our body has difficulty breaking them down into the ionic minerals or organic form.
Mother Nature is very clever though!
She created photosynthesis. This gives the sea veggies the ability to absorb the inorganic minerals and store then in the organic form. The Japanese culture recognizes this. Daily intake of kelp in the diet of the people of Okinawa is said to be the major factor of their high number of healthy centenarians.
Aloe is well documented for its healing properties.
It alone contains over 30 nutrients. It is also a great carrier of nutrients to the cells.
Thirty+ years ago, Geri & Wayne Hillman discovered the healing power of combining nine specific sea veggies with Aloe Vera and, with the help of nutritional scientists, created Body Balance. Read their story here These are some of the benefits of drinking BodyBalance every day:
- More sustainable energy. Gone is that horrible mid-afternoon fatigue.

- More comfortable digestion. Reduced bloating. No longer overeating.
- Great for kids health – Less inflammation. Reduced number of colds, ear infections, runny noses.
- Great for the elderly – An extra 120 nutrients per day can be the difference between staying at home or being in aged care.
- Great for the athlete – Who loses valuable minerals through sweating during exercise.

Homeopathy and homeopathic medicines were established in the late 1800’s. It is a system of medicine based on the principles that agents which produce certain signs and symptoms in health also work on those signs and symptoms in disease. That the more a substance is diluted, the more powerful it becomes.
Most homoeopathic preparations are extracts of naturally occurring substances, like plants, animal material and natural chemicals. With changes in the environment over the last century, at My Wellness Centre we are increasingly seeing the need to use complex remedies (more than one substance in the preparation), in order to assist with reducing Toxin Load and re-establishing the chi energy necessary for health.
My Wellness Centre uses remedies from highly reputable companies including Brauer, Heel, Bioresearch and Reckeweg. They are safe & effective to use with all age groups. Responses are usually immediate and very effective. Homeopathic remedies are brilliant for rebalancing your energy or Chi; they are so simple to use for all age groups including babies; frequently included in your recovery programme.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
What is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)?
HTMA is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair.
HTMA is regarded by many doctors, naturopaths and nutritional therapists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.
Why test for minerals?
Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the body’s pH and water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions. They are the basic ‘spark plugs’ of life.
Ideally we should get all the minerals we need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately today this is rarely possible. Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental pollutants, chemical food additives and stressful lifestyles also have a detrimental effect on our nutritional status.
Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children, to name just a few.
Consequently, we need to test and monitor our nutritional status more than ever.
Benefits of HTMA
- Safe, scientific, non-invasive pathology test.
- Reliable data on more than 35 nutrient and toxic minerals, and over 25 important mineral ratios.
- Valuable health information often not revealed in standard blood and urine tests.
- Discovery of nutrient mineral imbalances or toxic mineral excesses that may be affecting your health.
Test performed by InterClinical Laboratories on behalf of My Wellness Centre. Includes personalised patient and practitioner interpretive test report that assesses your current mineral status, highlights areas of concern and recommended dietary changes and supplements for improved health and wellbeing.
