My name is Carmen and I am a naturopath at Moonee Ponds Mind Body Health. My interest in natural therapies started about 14 years ago when I saw a naturopath for chronic asthma and hay fever.
I’m glad to say I don’t suffer from either anymore and the journey has brought me to where I am today.
I was attracted to naturopathy as it is a system that not only treats the symptoms of disease but also identifies the causes of illness. I use natural therapies such as diet & lifestyle, herbs, lymphatic drainage, vitamins and minerals to help bring the body back into balance so it can heal itself. Flower essences can also be added in order to address the emotional drivers of illness.
Before naturopathy I worked as a midwife and women’s health nurse for 15 years with experience in delivery suite, postnatal ward, neonatal nursery, and specialist clinics such as young mothers, drug & alcohol, family planning, menopause and gynaecology clinics.
Assisting couples to get pregnant, supporting women throughout their pregnancy and then seeing them as a family once the baby is born is ideal as I also enjoy treating children of all ages.
It is most satisfying when people have positive improvements from debilitating conditions such as hay fever, chronic sinus, pain, fatigue and arthritis to name a few.
Encouraging and assisting people to lose weight is beneficial as it is not only about the weight but about the prevention of chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease. After all it’s not only about living longer but living healthier.
So come and see me at Moonee Ponds Mind Body Health. I would love to meet you and help you reach your health goals for the coming year.
