Mindfulness Meditation

“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety.The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before”.– Psychology Today

Naturopath – Kush Vatchha N.D

Naturopathy can be applied to almost any health condition. Not only to treat existing conditions but to maintain health and prevent disease.

A system of treatment based on:

  • The body has the ability to heal itself
  • The base cause of disease must be removed for the healing to take place
  • Treating the whole person, entire body, mind and spirit
  • Taking responsibility for one’s own health
  • Building health, not just fighting illness

Naturopathy can be applied to almost any health condition. Not only to treat existing conditions but to maintain health and prevent disease.

Treatment plans are based on herbal medicine, nutritional support (vitamins & minerals), diet and lifestyle as well as flower essences. Pathology tests will be carried out and any other testing will be carried out to understand and treat your
symptoms.

Hormonal Imbalances

Hormonal Imbalances refer to the irregular production or regulation of one or more hormones in the body. Depending on the type of hormone different effects on the body can occur, therefore no two hormonal imbalances are the same. Hormonal imbalances may cause bloating, irritability and feeling sluggish. Other symptoms may include but are not limited to irregular periods, sleep problems, chronic acne, ongoing fatigue, memory fog, problems with indigestion, mood swings, depression, headaches, appetite and weight gain, loss of libido and breast changes. The treatment is specifically aimed at restoring the normal regulation of the hormones. Examples of when hormonal imbalances can occur include during menopause, puberty, stress for prolonged periods, skincare products that may contain endocrine disruptors, weight gain and more.

Hormonal Imbalances

Natural Fertility

Unfortunately, many couples have difficulties conceiving naturally and/or carry a pregnancy term. Our naturopathic treatment focuses on a unique holistic approach to help provide insight and information about some of the causes of the infertility issues and explore the different types of treatments. In some cases, instances of stress and anxiety, toxicity levels in the body, deficiencies or even hormonal imbalances can act as barriers against conception. Through naturopathic treatment, we work to determine if there are any lifestyle, biological or any other kind of factors that may be contributing to difficulties in conceiving.

Natural Fertility

Depression

In Australia alone, an estimated 45% of individuals will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. Today, approximately 1 million Australians are currently living with depression. If you are experiencing feelings of low mood, irritability, sadness or any other negative emotion that lasts for longer than weeks, years or even months, then naturopathic treatment may be the solution for you. Depression can get in the way of everyday functioning, whilst severing relationships with family and friends. We address the cause of of your feelings through specialised counselling techniques and methods in safe and caring environment, together with herbal and nutritional support.

Depression

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue stems from the adrenal glands, which are deficient in providing you with the support your body requires andt are functioning below the necessary and optimal level. Adrenal fatigue is commonly associated with high levels of stress, different types of infections and lower levels of certain hormones and neurotransmitters. As the name may suggest, adrenal fatigue symptoms are mainly fatigue and even food cravings, specifically salty foods. This condition can also be identified via low blood pressure and frequent urination. If you have a weak immune system, difficulty with getting up in the morning and preserving energy throughout the day, inability to cope with stress and have higher energy levels at night, you may be experiencing some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal Fatigue

Low Energy & Sleep Disturbances

It is not uncommon for many of us to experience low energy during a busy schedule, as well as issues with sleep. Some reasons for low energy and difficulties falling asleep may be due to mood disorders, anemia, fibromyalgia, an over or underactive thyroid, arthritis and more. We work together to determine some of the key causes of low energy, and work through your current circumstances to enable you to sleep through the night. This will ensure you get optimal amounts of sleep the natural way. Having low energy throughout the day can interrupt how we function and our efficacy, leading to higher levels of distress which can also impact the amount of sleep we get each night.

Low Energy & Sleep Issues

Allergies & Intolerances

Allergies and intolerances can present in many different forms, including rashes on the skin, digestive problems, and in more severe cases, anaphylaxis which may lead to fatality. An allergy is usually experienced due to an immune system reaction.
In fact, allergies and intolerances can be inherited, with an approximate 20-40% chance of developing an allergy if a family member also has an allergy. Some symptoms of intolerances include sweating, increased blood pressure, diarrhoea, burning and itching of the skin, breathing problems and more. Some food allergies may result in hives, respiratory issues, vomiting or nausea, runny nose and more. Through Naturopathic methods, we work to pinpoint some of the most effective treatments that are unique to you and your symptoms.

Our Happy Clients

We are grateful to be able to post testimonials from our patients, and below you will find some of those stories.

I was suffering from Menopausal symptoms for over 6 years. I was feeling very run down, irritated, nervous, couldn’t sleep well, no libido, had many bad headaches. I suffered from mood swings, many hot flushes and night sweats, along with tingling feet .

Those were the main symptoms. After seeing Kush I have had many things restored/boosted, my hormonal imbalances have been adjusted using herbs, supplements and using skin products that are without any chemicals. After 18 months I now have a few mild hot flushes that should dissipate, as my body has had adrenal support and my progesterone and oestrogen levels have been balanced. I can only recommend you don’t wait for 6 years for the miracle end to menopause.

I would like to let you know,how grateful i am for your help in the healing of my twice dislocated hip,after my surgery for a hip replacement at 81.The surgeon today was amazed at my ability to walk.Thank you so much Kush.

Christa

I have suffered from very itchy hives and sometimes swollen eyes and lips, over most of my body since 2011, and had to take antihistamine tablets every day.

At best I would be able sometimes to go for every 2nd day. After seeing Kush and starting on her remedies in October 2015 I was only needing ½ a tablet every 2-3 days and after 5 weeks have not needed any antihistamine at all. Thanks to Kush I am feeling very well in myself and not worried all the time.Thanks again Kush.

Patsy

I have had sinus problems for years. It is in the family. The only treatment was antibiotics. That helped relieve the pain and discomfort but did not cure it. .

I was recommended to try a Naturopath by a friend. I had doubts but I was sick of taking antibiotics constantly. The treatment was mainly with herbs. After a few weeks, I noticed some relief. I have been having treatment for some years. Late last year the sinus became quite bad. The new herbs and supplements Kush introduced to me gave me relief in a much shorter time. The herbal incense at night makes sleeping easier. To be able to smell and breathe normally again is wonderful. I believe in the natural way of treating the sinus. It is not harmful to your body like antibiotics is.It has definitely made a difference to the quality of my life.

I saw Kush as my husband and I were having trouble with conceiving our second child after trying for six months. I'd remembered one friend saw a naturopath after trying for six months and another went after trying for seven years and, like both of them, we also conceived in the very next cycle..

I'm so grateful to Kush for her expertise with selecting the specific vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements and for treating my adrenal glands and nervous system in order to help my body to be replenished with the necessary nutrients to be ready to house a new developing baby again.

Amanda

I have been suffering dreadful menopause symptoms for about 18 months. I was having 5 or 6 hot flushes every night, my skin was itchy, my libido was almost non existent, I had put on 10 kg and I looked as though I was 7 months pregnant.

I was emotionally fragile and pretty cranky too. I decided it was time to try to sort my poor body out and, not wanting to go on HRT, I went to see Kush. My first appointment was only 4 weeks ago and I cannot believe the difference!! My hot flushes have almost disappeared, I have only had about three in the last two weeks, my skin is no longer itchy, I have lost 3 kg and my libido is returning. I am not so emotional and cranky any more. The herbs and drops that Kush recommend that I take have changed my body and my outlook. I am so pleased and so grateful to Kush.

Marg

I was in a desperate situation when I found Kush two and a half months ago. My anxiety levels were so high I couldn't go out into social situations.

Her kind, caring, empathetic approach combined with her naturopathic expertise is helping me to overcome my fears and feel better about myself. Her herbal treatments have helped with my anxiety so much that I am now able to enjoy life and social gatherings without feeling like I'm going to have a breakdown. I've used so many skin care products on the market, including microdermabrasion and DMK facials to reduce the freckles on my face.

I was so disheartened as I had wasted so much money on products that didn't work. I decided to try more of a natural approach and came across Kush's skin care products, I was a sceptical at first but I'm so glad I gave it a try as my freckles have already faded so much and my complexion appears brighter and more rejuvenated, all under three months.

I can't praise Kush's skin care products enough, she has designed a range all from specially formulated plant derived ingredients which is affordable and that really works!

Kush has been fantastic naturopath for me, especially in advising me on the sun damage and freckles on my face. Not only does she use her naturopathic skills to heal you from the inside out (nutrition, herbs and supplements),

she also has the knowledge and products to treat skin topically - namely my sun damage. Her Kush Health products are just divine and made without any nasty chemicals, something I'm paranoid about with most skin care products. I've been using her Kush Health serum & moisturiser for three months and my freckles and sun damage spots have already faded so much, I can't wait until they are no longer visible! I am also eyeing off the body butter for the summer months coming up. Recommended naturopath :).

Amelia

Thank You Kush, for your care and attention over the last past year. The herbs and supplements for the cramping in my legs and my lack of sleep, have greatly helped in remedying

these problems.

Your grief counselling too, has enabled me to cope with my husband's death and its aftermath.

Being able to embrace change and turn the negatives into positive thinking in many areas has been most helpful.

Thank you once again.

Lesley

"We were introduced to Kush in June of 2010, at a time when our 14 year old son was down with a severe case of Glandular Fever. Our doctor couldn't prescribe any medication for him

except antibiotics.

The treatment Kush prescribed with the natural remedies enabled our son to recover so much so that after five weeks from initial diagnosis, his blood test returned a negative result to the Fever. A big surprise to us all and our doctor. However, with this illness, ongoing fatigue can be an issue and Kush was able to provide Andrew with remedies to keep it under control.

Thank you again for your help and support."

"I work in a very high stress job that involves daily deadlines. The herbal mixtures Kush has made up for me have been incredible in reducing my stress levels. I feel as though I can

now get through the day without feeling like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown!"

Cesira

"I was exhausted when I came to see Kush last winter, 25 weeks pregnant with a heavy cold and sinus infection. She started me on vitamins & supplements which helped my body recover from

the infection and support my baby through the rest of the pregnancy.

I want to thank Kush for her thoroughness and advice. Amazingly I continued on through the remainder of my pregnancy without illness. Pregnant women do no despair! Go and see Kush, she'll sort you out with everything you need to support your body during pregnancy, and help you out when you're exhausted as I was.

Follow up your consults, take what she recommends, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!"

"I was extremely stressed and not coping, Kush gave me flower essences, and within twenty minutes, I was calm and in control. Ever since that episode, I have been taking and loving flower essences. Thank you saved my life."

Pia

I found that Kush's naturopathic treatment at the beginning of my recovery from an eating disorder was a very useful balance to the dietetic treatment and psychotherapy

I was receiving. Kush's treatment involved a whole body and mind approach. The herbal treatment in particular greatly assisted me at the initial stage when coping with the physical challenges of an increased dietary intake. This nutritional support helped to increase my appetite, restore my digestive processes and reduce the anxiety that I had built up around food and eating. I would recommend naturopathy as a complementary therapy to support somebody facing this particular type of challenge.

"I suffered for many years with headaches and migraines with no relief from bought pain relief. I was told about naturopaths but had never tried them, and was referred to Kush, who has

helped me with herbal treatment, and I have been migraine and headache free for about 18 months now, and I will never buy pain relief from chemists anymore."

Yvonne

I consulted Kush six months ago, about fibromyalgia and arthritis. My energy levels are improving and my general health is much improved. While I am achy at times, I am happy with the treatment I have received.

Liz

"I have come to Kush during two stressful periods in my life, spaced almost 1 year apart. The first time my energy levels where impossibly low, that I couldn't function during the day

and had bad headaches. The second time around, during another stressful phase in my life I was actually sick and again, low on energy, with no vitality. Conventional medicine had no answer for me other than antibiotics which in my case do more damage than good.

Each time Kush has been able to identity and address several issues in my body. The treatment included herbal tonics and powders and always kept illness and symptoms at bay. The results were very good-energy being the first thing coming back.

My health is in a very good shape now, much better than ever before. It is amazing what health conditions we can get use to and accept as our burden forever, where it can really be fixed. I have never received such a thorough and attentive help when it came to my health.

I also gained a lot of knowledge through Kush that will be useful for life. I understand my body a lot better and see it as a whole – where everything is related and problems aren't treated with Band-Aid solutions but eliminated at the root, and a lot of problems can be avoided that way. I look at it as an investment into my quality of life and definitely recommend naturopathic services."

Marianne

"My kids started seeing Kush three years ago (aged 2 and 4) as they were sick all the time – ear infections, asthma, eczema, food allergy, cold and flu, and chest infections, etc.

and they had been prescribed antibiotics almost every other week by our GP for a long period of time, I was desperate to find an alternative way to help my kids with their health at the time. Since we started seeking Kush's help, she went through all our diets, and started to rebuild my kids' immune system with her customised herbal tonic and supplements, we are all so happy that my kids haven't have any major illnesses since then, and haven't been on antibiotics for about 2 years now!

I was so impressed by her holistic approach, I started seeing Kush for all my health problems – constipation, sinusitis, and stress/emotional issues, Kush has been treating me with herbal tonics, supplements and flower essences. I have also attended her meditation classes and I am a lot calmer now, and able to deal with the overwhelming everyday life of being a single-parent. I am so glad I have made the decision to seek advice from Kush, and I would recommend her to everybody!"

"Kush is genuinely dedicated and interested in her clients, treating them on an individual basis.
Her creams which she has cleverly made up have assisted with the healing of scar

tissue from the radiation I had during my cancer treatment.

I was informed from medical people that the scarring would take a long time to heal, not so when I used the creams and oils which Kush had given me.

I recommend her to anyone."

Sue

"I would like to say a massive thank you to Kush Vatchha for coming into my life!
I first decided to visit Kush when I experienced peri-menopausal symptoms. There was no way

I wanted to head down the path I saw my mother and older co-workers down.

The day I started stripping off my dressing gown in my kitchen in front of my children whilst having a hot flushes was the day I needed to see change. Night after night of insomnia; extreme fatigue.

10 weeks later, I am a new woman. No more hot flushes, now sleeping and rejuvanised.

Kaylene

My daughter was suffering extreme anxiety and had great difficulty coping with even simple things in everyday life. My own efforts and those of professionals that I had sought out were

having no positive effect.

She began her Naturopathy treatment with Kush and the turnaround has been remarkable. The combination of herbal medicine, diet change and Kush's counselling has brought about a much improved outlook, a positive response to coping with issues and has enabled her to return to work.

Martin

“Kush has been such a tremendous help to me over the last 18 month in dealing with anxiety, fear of flying, low energy, headaches and bad food habits. I consider Kush part of my non negotiable Self Care team

.

She has a wealth of information, is very caring and straightforward and has a genuine interest in educating her clients and helping them to reach a better quality of health and healing. Thanks Kush for your dedication and patience in helping me to take better care of myself and improve my food habits.”

Anna

"I am a 27 year old Female now living a healthylife style thanks to Kush and her treatment with natural medicine. I went through a tough period 2-3 years ago, I was addicted to drugs (ICE) and was struggling with all aspects of my life which caused a lot of stress and mental illness including anxiety and depression.

Kush used a combination of herbal medicine, diet, flower essence and holistic counselling, to treat me and through this I was able to defeat my addiction to drugs. This was the turning point for me and I am so grateful for the treatment and help I recieved if it wasn't for that I don't know if I would be where I am today. I now have a new perspective on life.
