Avatar Bio-feedback Machine

The Avatar can detect unexplained health problems that other tests may not.  Combining the traditional knowledge of Chinese Medicine, Naturopathy, Homeopathy and modern science, the Avatar can provide a detailed reading of your body on a cellular level.

The Chinese mapped the body’s meridian pathways thousands of years ago.  Every meridian pathway and acupuncture point refers to a different organ or system in the body.  The Avatar biofeedback machine measures disturbances in the body’s flow through electromagnetic energy.  Using a blunt sensor probe (no needles) we can test your acupuncture points on your fingers and feet and are able to identify probable causes of health issues.  The sensor probe, when put on specific acupuncture points will correlate directly with all your body systems such as the digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, and reproductive systems, and register any imbalance.


Have you ever had a bug that you thought you got rid of, but have never been the same since? 

Your body is a barometer and with the help of the Avatar, we are able to detect stress imbalances such as bacteria, parasites, viruses, fungi, chemicals, pesticides, and much more.  The possible reason you have never been the same is that your body is still holding onto the frequency of that bug and assumes you still have it.  Once this frequency is removed, your body no longer thinks the bug is there and your body will begin to do what it is designed to do – heal itself. 

We use the Avatar Biofeedback machine with another device called the Wavefront (Signal Transference Device).  After we have tested your body’s electromagnetic imbalances, we are then able to imprint those imbalances into your very own homeopathic remedy which will balance your frequency. 

The Avatar biofeedback machine measures

  • stress excesses on your organs
  • imbalances associated with your bodies tissues and/or organs
  • and more

The Avatar Biofeedback machine will let you know if you have any

  • chemicals and pesticides
  • viruses
  • bacteria
  • heavy metals
  • parasites
  • and much more in your system.

The Avatar Biofeedback machine is a holistic “full check-up” with instant results. Based on the results of your assessment we customize a remedy program that is designed specifically to meet your wellness goals.  Our programs will assist your body’s energy to be restored to a balanced state thereby allowing the return to optimal health. The Avatar is also a useful tool to help with desensitization to allergens such as pet hair and dust mites.

Once we have a remedy in mind we can place this remedy on the test plate of the Avatar and test your electromagnet field to see if the remedy is suitable for you.  We also test any supplements that we think your body is wanting to determine suitability and tolerance.

If you are experiencing any of the following health problems, the Avatar can help!

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Bloating and indigestion
  • Chemical and pesticide toxicity
  • Depression
  • Food intolerances
  • Hot flushes
  • Mood swings
  • PMS
  • Recurrent infections
  • Skin problems
  • Stress
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
  • Weight problems

Homeopathy remedies – Wave Front

Homeopathy is a medical science developed by German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). It is based on the principle that ‘like cures like". In simple terms, this means that any substance which can produce symptoms in a healthy person can cure similar symptoms in a sick person. This idea is referred to as the ‘Law of Similars’ and was understood by Aristotle and Hippocrates and mentioned in ancient Hindu manuscripts. It was Hahnemann, however, who turned it into a science of healing.

Here are examples of this principle:

  • An onion is a substance that makes your eyes water and your nose burn. If you are having an attack of hay fever with watering eyes and a burning nose, a homeopathic remedy made from onion may relieve it.
  • If you have a history of the bacteria Salmonella (food poisoning), the physical symptom picture may be vomiting, nausea and diarrhoea. We can imprint the vibration (cellular memory) of Salmonella into a homeopathic remedy to help cancel it out.
  • The Green Gingko often consults with patients who have fallen ill following a holiday in Bali, commonly due to a parasite. In this case, we can imprint the vibration of the specific parasite into a homeopathic remedy, in order to cancel out the cellular memory in the body.
  • Further examples of this principle include a tick or a spider bite and the Ross River virus contracted from a mosquito bite.

Change your life and experience these benefits from Homeopathy:

  • Enjoy a clear and focused mind;
  • Feel healthy and full of energy;
  • Improve your skin and look younger; and
  • Lose weight and look great.

Iridology Classes

‘The eyes are the windows of the soul’

Iridology is a tool used to gain insight into your unique constitution and character traits.  It can look into your family/genetic health disposition and in areas where your health needs more support. Iridology is a non-invasive method of viewing the iris to determine where health issues may exist. While iridology cannot diagnose diseases it does help to determine which organs and systems in the body are under stress and at risk of developing specific conditions.

Iridology can also detect any underlying imbalance or biochemical changes in your body.  Through the iris, we can learn about the things which make us 'tick' and how best to support ourselves & our health.

Certain deficiencies such as nutrients and dietary imbalances can be seen in the iris.  As wonderful as iridology is, signs and symptoms will always need to be confirmed with questioning and through consultations.

Iridology can detect the following:

  • Toxins and their locations
  • Stages of inflammation
  • Inherent weakness or strength
  • General health level
  • Biochemical deficiencies
  • Changes in tissue structure
  • Mineral depletion in organs or tissues

Iridology is considered extremely safe because it doesn't employ any invasive procedures. What's more, everything that the practitioner does is displayed on a monitor for the client to see. Book an Initial Consultation with our Herbal Naturopath.

Pathology Testing

The Whole Picture: The Power of Holistic Pathology Readings

In the realm of health and well-being, the human body is a complex and interconnected system. While conventional medicine often relies on standard reference ranges for pathology readings, there's a growing recognition that these ranges may not capture the full spectrum of individual health. Welcome to the world of holistic pathology readings – an approach that delves deeper to uncover a more comprehensive understanding of your well-being.

Beyond the Numbers: Embracing a Holistic Perspective

Understanding Conventional Reference Ranges - In the medical world, pathology readings are often assessed based on standard reference ranges. These ranges are determined by analyzing a large population to establish what is considered "normal" for various markers like blood pressure, cholesterol levels, or hormone levels.

The Limitations of Conventional Approaches - However, what falls within the "normal" range may not necessarily equate to optimal health for every individual. Holistic practitioners argue that these ranges might overlook subtle imbalances that could be crucial indicators of underlying issues.

The Holistic Range: A Personalized Evaluation

Individualized Wellness Assessment - Holistic pathology readings go beyond conventional norms by considering an individual's unique biochemistry, genetics, lifestyle, and emotional well-being. This approach recognizes that each person is a unique tapestry of factors that contribute to their overall health.

Exploring a Broader Spectrum - Our Holistic practitioners often expand their evaluation to include markers that may not be part of standard pathology panels. This can encompass assessments of nutritional status, inflammation levels, and other factors that offer a more comprehensive view of health.

The Interconnectedness of Health: A Holistic Outlook

Mind-Body Connection - Holistic pathology readings also acknowledge the profound connection between mental and physical health. Stress, emotions, and lifestyle factors are considered alongside traditional markers to provide a more complete understanding of an individual's well-being.

Prevention and Wellness Promotion - By adopting a holistic approach, the focus shifts from merely treating symptoms to proactively preventing imbalances and promoting overall wellness. This preventive mindset aligns with the principles of holistic health, emphasizing the importance of lifestyle choices in maintaining optimal health.

Navigating the Holistic Path: What to Expect

Comprehensive Lifestyle Recommendations - Holistic wellness plans may include dietary changes, herbal supplements, lifestyle modifications, and stress-management techniques. The goal is to address the root causes of imbalances and support the body's innate ability to heal.

A Holistic Path to Vibrant Well-Being

In the journey toward optimal health, holistic pathology readings offer a roadmap that considers the intricate interplay of physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors. By embracing this holistic perspective, individuals can work towards achieving a state of vibrant well-being that extends beyond mere absence of disease.

Flower Essence Reading

Floral Essences - What Is A Floral Essence & Can It Be Healing? | goop





Unveiling the Power of Flower Essences: Nature's Healing Elixirs

In the vast tapestry of natural remedies, flower essences stand out as gentle yet potent healers, offering a unique approach to holistic well-being. Rooted in the wisdom of nature, these liquid extracts capture the vibrational energy of flowers, holding the key to addressing emotional imbalances, supporting mental clarity, and promoting overall harmony within the body.

Understanding Flower Essences: A Dance with Nature

What Are Flower Essences? At the heart of flower essence therapy lies the belief that the vibrational imprint of a flower can positively impact our emotional and mental states. Unlike essential oils or herbal extracts, flower essences don't contain physical components of the plant. Instead, they carry the subtle energetic signature of the flower.

The Creation Process - Creating flower essences is a meticulous process involving the delicate handling of blossoms. Flowers are typically chosen for their unique energetic qualities. The blossoms are floated in pure spring water under sunlight, allowing the water to absorb the essence of the flower. This energized water is then preserved with alcohol to create the final tincture.

Unlocking Emotional Healing

Addressing Emotional Imbalances - Flower essences are renowned for their ability to address emotional challenges. Whether it's the lingering impact of past traumas or the daily stressors that life presents, these essences work on an energetic level to bring balance and healing.

Laying the Foundation for Mental Clarity - Many individuals find relief from mental fog and confusion through the use of flower essences. The vibrational energy helps clear mental clutter, allowing for greater focus and mental clarity.

Personalized Healing Journey

Tailored to Individual Needs - One of the beauty of flower essences lies in their adaptability to the unique needs of each person. A skilled herbalist or naturopath can guide individuals in selecting the right essences based on their emotional and mental well-being.

Integration with Other Therapies - Flower essences complement various therapeutic approaches, including herbal remedies, dietary changes, and lifestyle modifications. Their gentle nature makes them suitable for integration into holistic health practices.

Practical Application: Incorporating Flower Essences into Daily Life

Simple Usage Tips

  • Add a few drops of the chosen flower essence to a glass of water and sip throughout the day.
  • Place drops directly under the tongue for a more immediate effect.
  • Incorporate them into self-care rituals, such as meditation or journaling.

Patience and Consistency - As with many natural therapies, the effects of flower essences may take time to unfold. Consistency in usage and patience are key to experiencing their full benefits.

In the realm of holistic healing, flower essences offer a gentle melody of nature's wisdom, inviting individuals to embark on a journey of emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. As with any natural remedy, it's essential to consult with a qualified herbalist or naturopath to ensure personalized and effective usage.

Dutch Testing - Hormones

The Dutch Test: A Window into Hormonal Health and Beyond

In the realm of holistic health, the Dutch test emerges as a powerful tool, offering insights into hormonal balance and a broader spectrum of health markers. 

Decoding the Dutch Test: A Holistic Approach to Health Assessment

Understanding the Basics - The Dutch test, short for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones, is a non-invasive and comprehensive method for evaluating hormonal health. Unlike traditional blood tests, this approach utilizes dried urine samples to provide a more in-depth analysis of hormone levels, metabolic pathways, and potential imbalances.

Why "Dutch"? The name "Dutch" is derived from the acronym and reflects the innovative nature of this testing method. By collecting multiple samples throughout the day, the Dutch test captures the diurnal rhythm of hormone production, offering a dynamic picture of hormonal patterns.

Benefits of the Dutch Test: Beyond Hormones

Comprehensive Hormonal Analysis - One of the primary benefits of the Dutch test is its ability to assess a wide range of hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and their metabolites. This comprehensive evaluation provides a nuanced understanding of hormonal balance, which is crucial for overall health.

Insights into Hormone Metabolism - Beyond measuring hormone levels, the Dutch test delves into hormone metabolism. It evaluates how hormones are processed and broken down in the body, offering insights into potential issues with detoxification pathways and identifying areas for targeted support.

Assessment of Cortisol Patterns - The Dutch test excels in assessing cortisol, the primary stress hormone. By examining cortisol levels throughout the day, it reveals the body's response to stress and helps identify patterns of adrenal function, aiding in the management of stress-related issues.

Personalized Wellness Strategies - Perhaps one of the most valuable aspects of the Dutch test is its ability to guide personalized wellness strategies. Based on the results, our Herbal Naturopath can recommend targeted interventions, such as lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and herbal support, to address specific imbalances.

Taking the Next Step: What to Expect

Ease of Testing - Undergoing a Dutch test is a straightforward process. Patients collect urine samples at various times throughout the day, providing a comprehensive snapshot of hormonal activity. This can be done in the comfort of your own home, making it a convenient option.

Interpreting Results with our Herbal Naturopath- Upon receiving the Dutch test results, we schedule an appointment with our herbal naturopath. In this session, the findings will be carefully interpreted in the context of your overall health. Our herbal naturopath will then provide personalized recommendations for a holistic approach to well-being based on the specific insights from the Dutch test.
