A multidisciplinary approach to holistic health

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a complementary form of medicine that acknowledges and supports the body’s own healing abilities.

Naturopaths aim to treat the whole person individually and educate and empower you to take responsibility for your own health.

The emphasis is on using evidence-based and traditional natural substances such as food, herbs and nutritional supplements to create balance, promote wellness and prevent chronic dis-eases.

Naturopathic Principles

Naturopathy is guided by six foundational principles;

Early Detection & Prevention Of Health Issues

Naturopathy has a strong focus on the prevention of health issues and the early detection of a person’s likelihood of developing a health disorder (predisposition). Naturopathy is also very effective at treating acute and chronic health issues.

Naturopathy aims to;

Minimise symptoms

Support the body’s vital force (its capacity to self-heal)

Re-balance the system so that illness is less likely to occur in the future

Educate the patient to look after their own health and the health of their family

What To Expect

Initial Assessment

A well-trained naturopath will want to know about your diet, lifestyle, family background and environment, as well as the history of your illness or complaint. This information is important so that the naturopath can discover the cause of the illness. You are treated as a whole person.

As well as taking a detailed health history, the naturopath may use other diagnostic techniques, such as:

Blood Analysis

Functional Testing

Hair Analysis

Iridology

Kinesiology

Stool & Urnine Analysis

Treatment

A naturopath employs a range of non-invasive techniques and these include
(but are not limited to):

Nutrition and dietary advice – one of naturopathy’s foundations. A poor diet stops the body from functioning well, and a build-up of toxins can lead to a range of illnesses. Whole, fresh and unprocessed foods are recommended.

Herbal medicine – herbs are as potent as pharmaceutical drugs and can be used to great effect.

Homœopathy –  homœopathic treatments are used to stimulate the immune system.

Hydrotherapy (water therapy) – another foundation of naturopathy. For instance, the use of hot and cold compresses might be used for certain conditions to influence the flow of blood and body heat.

Physical therapies – such as massage, Bowen, acupressure, bio-puncture or mechanotherapy.

Kinesiology and integrated bio-dynamics (IBD).

Counselling techniques – emotional problems and stress can interfere with the healing process. Counselling techniques can include stress management strategies and life coaching.

Naomi Rogan

Director/Senior Consulting Naturopath
Adv. Dip. Health Science (Naturopathy) Reiki Practitioner Remedial Therapist Cert IV Holistic Counselling/Mind Body Medicine

Naomi Rogan brings over 30 years of experience in the Australian healthcare industry, with 22 years of expertise as a Clinical Naturopath. She is an accomplished Naturopath and a proud mother of 3 children, 2 chickens, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. In her leisure time, Naomi enjoys bushwalking, visiting the beach, walking her dogs, and spending quality time with her family.

Naomi has worked in several busy practices across metropolitan and rural WA areas, collaborating with allied health professionals and medical practitioners. She is the director of two thriving integrated clinics in WA, working closely with her team in a collaborative healthcare approach.

Naomi is deeply passionate about naturopathy as she has personally experienced the difficulties of suffering from chronic health conditions. As a child, she struggled with eczema and had to rely on steroids to manage it. As she grew older, Naomi developed autoimmune disorders such as alopecia, psoriasis, and anemia. Her journey in understanding and managing these conditions led her to explore alternative treatments that could address the root cause of her health issues. Through this journey of self-healing, Naomi gained valuable insights and knowledge that she now uses to help, heal, and educate her patients.

Naomi works closely with her patients, using empathy and evidence-based approaches to wellness and incorporating the latest technology in testing and quality natural medicines.

Naomi collaborates with other healthcare professionals in both clinics and conducts thorough testing when necessary to obtain a comprehensive understanding of her patient’s current health. This enables her to create personalised treatment management plans for each patient, which can help alleviate symptoms and address the underlying disease patterns, ultimately restoring their health and vitality.

Naomi is highly skilled in managing complex cases and supporting individuals who struggle with multiple health conditions, numerous medications, and a long list of symptoms. She excels in breaking down and systematically addressing an individual’s health concerns, empowering them to take control of their health, and understanding and treating the underlying causes. Her strength lies in guiding individuals towards effective management of their health issues.

Lisa Mackay

Adv Dip Health Science (Naturopathy)
Certified Metabolic Balance® Coach
Adv Cert Natural Fertility Management & Better Babies Preconception
Health Care Adv Cert Rapid Transformational Therapy TFT Diagnostic Level

Lisa has over 20 years of experience working both in private practice and with pharmacy groups in the Perth metropolitan area and remotely in Western Australia and Bali.

Lisa’s journey into natural medicine began early on, sparked by a traumatic car accident that necessitated the use of the jaws of life for her rescue. Though conventional medicine successfully treated the immediate emergency, Lisa was left grappling with undiagnosed PTSD and subsequent adrenal fatigue. Frustrated with the limitations of traditional approaches in resolving her symptoms, she embarked on a personal exploration of the root causes underlying her health challenges.

After experiencing significant success under the care of a Naturopath, Lisa found inspiration to share her knowledge and support with others who, like her, felt lost and debilitated by symptoms and their underlying factors. This transformative experience led her to become a dedicated advocate for helping individuals address and overcome health challenges through natural and holistic approaches.

After studying a preconception care program during her post-graduate studies, Lisa incorporated her knowledge into her pregnancies, inspiring her to share her expertise with other couples to optimise their chances of having healthy babies.

Lisa’s passion lies in inspiring women to reclaim their vitality. Through a personalised approach, she fine-tunes their diet, lifestyle, and nutrition, allowing them to relish life’s luxuries without compromise. For Lisa, it’s all about striking the right balance rather than deprivation.

Lisa can offer support in the following key areas:
