WHAT TO EXPECT
An initial appointment with Natalie involves understanding your current health as well as any previous health conditions. It will take between 1-1.15 hr hours depending on the type of consultation you are having.
At this time, your medical history and general lifestyle will be reviewed in order to determine a naturopathic treatment regimen suited to your individual needs. We will also conduct a number of tests to help understand the health of your body in a measurable manner.
Diagnostic procedures such as physical exams, blood, and urine analysis may be required in order to establish a treatment and health-promoting program. Naturopathy is suitable for everyone, from infants to the aged.
Testing included in the initial price and may include:
- Zinc Tally test
- Health Appraisal
- Blood Pressure
- Tongue and nail analysis
- Other Screening Tools
Natalie is trained to employ safe and effective natural therapies that will support and stimulate the healing power of nature in the gentlest, least invasive, and most efficient manner possible. She will use a wide range of innovative methods to assist in the healing process including herbal medicine, nutrition – diet and lifestyle recommendations, vitamins and minerals, flower essences, homeopathy, hair, tongue, and nail analysis, laser therapy/acupuncture, and VEGA assessment.
Any prescribed homeopathic treatment will last from one to three months
Natalie recommends only the highest quality, most effective products that’s why she uses specific ‘practitioner only products’ for optimal nutrition. These include the Metagenics supplement range.
Functional Pathology Tests
These tests may be required for further diagnosis. These tests are not covered by Medicare, so you need to pay for them whether through a Doctor or through Natalie (it is the same price).
These tests may include:
– Hormone testing through saliva or urine to show the different oestrogen metabolites not picked up by the blood.
– Adrenal Stress – measured by saliva cortisol levels throughout the day.
– Thyroid test including T4, T3, reverse T3 and antibodies. Most doctors only test TSH, which doesn’t give you all the information you need.
– Iodine Urine (which is an important nutrient needed for the Thyroid).
– Pyrrole Urine Test
– Allergy / Food intolerance Testing
– Pfeiffer Profile – includes Vitamin D, Zinc and copper ratios, whole blood histamine, homocysteine.
– MTHFR Gene Testing
– SIBO breath test for gut health –
– Comprehensive Digestive Stool analysis
Natalie will tailor your tests and treatment plan to suit your individual needs taking into account your budget requirements.
She is gifted at explaining in simple terms the biochemistry of your body and why you may need support.
It can be a lot of information in one sitting, so she gives handouts to take home with you to read.
FOLLOW UP NATUROPATHY VEGA CONSULTATION
During this 45 minutes appointment, you will be provided with information outlining the findings of your test results, a comprehensive treatment plan, and relevant information for you to read. We will also discuss any supplementation you may require (supplement costs apply).
Achieving wellness is about achieving balance in all areas of your life. A simple and effective personalised health and well-being program will be designed to encourage, motivate and support you to achieve your health goals.
Vega follow-up appointments are usually spaced between 1-3 months apart depending on your individual health requirements. Any tests which are required to be performed at follow-up appointments are an additional cost to the consultation fee.

ZOOM and Skype CONSULTATIONS
ZOOM and Skype Naturopathic consultations are a great way to connect, without the worry of having to travel. It’s the same experience as if you were sitting in the clinic, face to face.
Zoom and Skype also allow you to be more flexible with available consultation times, as these are not restricted to clinic hours, this is especially helpful if you work 9-5.
To get started with a ZOOM or Skype consultation firstly you’ll need to have downloaded ZOOM or Skype on your computer, phone, or iPad (device) go to the ZOOM and Skype webpage for more information:
Once you have created a ZOOM account you’ll need to do the following:
- I’ll send you a meeting ID provided.
- Click Join.
- If this is your first time joining from Google Chrome, you will be asked to open the Zoom client to join the meeting.
Once you have created a Skype ID you’ll need to do the following:
- Add me to your contacts list (please do this before to our confirmed consultation time). My Skype ID is foxynat19.
- I’ll will then add you to my contact list as well.

Once the consultation finishes any information that has been discussed along with, a proposed treatment plan outlining any suggestions &/or instructions as well as an invoice will be forwarded via email. I will advise you through your treatment plan of any supplements to be purchased and will arrange postage via Australia Post or a patient script will be sent via Metagenics.
Payment for the ZOOM and Skype consultation can be made by direct deposit online or by credit card (before consultation).
Please note that in order for the consultation to run smoothly it’s important to have a good internet connection, if not it can lead to distortion and issues with clarity of sound & video. If this continues to happen the consultation will be concluded over the phone.
