Collection: Health and Wellness Programs
The Green Gingko's Health and Wellness Programs are evidenced based Nutritional/Herbal programs suited to you as an individual. We look at you as a "Holistic" whole individual and design programs that suit your lifestyle and your body's needs.
The Green Gingko has a range of programs that can be tailored to suit each individual, ensuring you get the best results for your health. Our programs are eight weeks in duration and our practitioners are there every step of the way to offer help and support along your journey to optimal health.
“Health is wealth”. Health is a vibrant state of wellbeing and enjoyment of life. Our Wellness Programs aim to help you achieve this state of wellbeing by following three basic steps: a healthy eating plan, regular exercise and nutritional/herbal supplementation.
Some of the Health Benefits of our Wellness Programs are;
- Blood sugar control;
- Cardiovascular health;
- Good digestion;
- Healthy skin;
- Improves mood;
- Improves well-being;
- Increases energy levels;
- Stay healthy and active for as long as possible; and
- Weight loss and weight maintenance.
Depending on the results of your initial consultation, our practitioner may recommend one of the following programs:
Optimal intestinal health is vital. At The Green Gingko, we believe the gut is the centre of your physical health. If we are not able to digest and absorb nutrients then other organs and systems will not be able to function efficiently, therefore eventually creating disease.
The purpose of any detox program is to take the load off the organs that detoxify the body, for example the gut, liver, kidneys and bowel, whilst at the same time supporting and improving their performance.
During your Complete Detox Program your practitioner will address these stress influences, along with any food intolerance's that may present and bring your body back to homeostasis.
Stress and lack of sleep are a basic control mechanism in everyday life, but prolonged stress and lack of sleep may be harmful to our body. Long-term stress places an immense load on many organs and systems, especially the heart, blood vessels, the adrenals and the immune system. If you are continually feeling ‘burnt out’, stressed, exhausted and prone to allergies, you may be suffering with adrenal fatigue or adrenal exhaustion.
When at optimal functioning the immune system identifies a variety of threats, such as bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi, differentiating them from your body’s own healthy tissue.
Our Immune Boost Program includes steps to: reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and bronchial airway; balance gut micro flora with probiotics; strengthen the immune system and offer protection against cold and flu symptoms with the use of both herbal and homeopathic medicine; and replace vitamin and mineral deficiencies with supplementation.
Hormones play a key role in our overall health and well-being. If our hormones are out of balance, then we are out of balance. Our hormones will fluctuate throughout our life and can be affected by many factors, such as:
Environmental (External) Factors
‘Xeno’ is the Greek word for ‘foreign’. This is precisely what these chemicals (xenoestrogens) are to the body. Xenoestrogens mimic the effect of hormones, attaching themselves to oestrogen receptors and interfering with normal hormone signaling, therefore creating imbalance.
We understand the importance of giving children the best possible start in life. We seek to find the true underlying cause of both the physical triggers and symptoms that present and to build and strengthen your child’s immune system.
At The Green Gingko we specifically specialise in Children and Adults who suffer from ADHD. We have done endless research into the best possible natural treatment plans to help manage the symptoms of ADHD.
Are you frustrated after following a diet to only regain weight or even more weight shortly thereafter? Are you overwhelmed by trying many different diets without losing weight? Are you always thinking of your weight and the food that you eat every day? Is your weight affecting your health? You are not alone.
We use evidence-based research and design a meal plan that suits your body’s needs and your everyday lifestyle. Our weight loss and wellness programs are nutritionally balanced and designed to meet all of your nutritional needs.
Research has shown that Australian men are often less likely to address their health concerns until they become chronic health problems. This may be due in to the societal expectation that men need to “toughen up” and just “get on with it”. Our Naturopath works with many males to help them improve various aspects of their health. Some of the common Men’s health issue we see are:
- Male Menopause (Andropause) - a decline in testosterone levels accompanied by a rise in Estrogen, this happens gradually over a number of years for the male, unlike a sharp decrease in the female around menopause
- Erectile Dysfunction - Inability to maintain or achieve an erection, which can be seen at any age for men.
- Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia - non-cancerous growth of the prostate, narrowing the urethra that causes urine flow issues and recurrent infections of the urinary tract.
- Infertility - the inability to conceive a child after 12 months of having intercourse around ovulation times with their partner.
- Prostatitis - acute or chronic inflammation of the prostate further causing urinary flow issues
