Treating babies and children has always been a particular passion for Natalie, even more so now as a mother herself.
She believes that giving infants a strong healthy start in life helps to ensure a healthier childhood and adulthood. Guiding parents to create healthy, balanced diets: identifying where a child's health is less than optimal, and treating infection and disease where necessary, using a naturopathic approach is immensely rewarding.
Experience has shown children respond well to herbal, homoeopathic and nutritional remedies for ailments ranging from allergies and infections to digestive disorders and behavioural problems.
Natalie understands the importance of supporting parents to make the changes required to assist a child's return to wellness. She spends time guiding parents through food alternatives and new shopping habits, enjoys sharing successful recipes for fussy eaters and often has solutions for a child's compliance problems.
"Last winter wasn't pleasant; my one-year old daughter Imogen was frequently sick either with colds, throat infections or nasty viruses. This year I took Imogen to my Naturopath, Natalie to see what I could do to boost Imogen's immune system and prevent last year's nightmare.
Natalie recommended the routine of a vitamin C powder and an immune-boosting herbal to be started well before winter's arrival. I'm very happy to say we had a great 2008 winter; one or two minor headcolds that went away within a couple of days. Knowing we managed this naturally without vaccination was a great relief, giving me peace of mind knowing I'm giving my little girl a healthy start to life."

"I have been going to see Natalie for over 10 years. Over this time Natalie has not only optimised my general health and wellbeing but she has also significantly assisted me through two pregnancies, births and the post partum period."
I now take my children to see Natalie. She has been able to help them through illnesses aswell as the usual problems, from teething to tonsils. Natalie not only treats problems as they arise but I believe she also helps avoid future illnesses by preventative means through looking at my children's diet, lifestyle and taking a holistic approach to their health.
Natalie's passion for natural therapies and her patients' wellbeing is evident in her caring and compassionate nature. I have on several occasions recommended friends and family to see Natalie and a testament to Natalie's professionalism and the results she achieves is that they have become return clients who recommend her to friends and family."
