About Katrina


Katrina from Brisbane West Naturopathy and Nutrition has been working as a Naturopath for the past six years and has a passion for natural health and finding out why ‘I just don’t feel right?’ Katrina graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) from Endeavour College of Natural Medicine (Brisbane) in 2013, opening her clinic in Moggill shortly afterwards – Katrina now offers online consultations and has re-opened her clinic for face to face consultations.

Katrina is a SIBO Doctor approved practitioner which is her latest qualification in regards to treating clients with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This is Katrina’s main area of practice as she understands what you are going through as she has suffered from SIBO in the past.

SIBO and IBS share many similar symptoms such as diarrhoea, constipation or a combination of both, abdominal cramps, bloating and flatulence. Katrina loves to support her clients on their healing journey. It is important to prevent relapses and this is done by finding the root cause of why we have these symptoms. Candida is another common condition that flares up when we are stressed or rundown and is linked with SIBO and food sensitivities and is considered to be a small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO).

Naturopathy has allowed Katrina to work with her clients to heal their gut, reduce their stress and anxiety and to support their adrenals to prevent burnout. Katrina works with women who are going into peri-menopause and menopause by supporting hormone and thyroid health along with inflammatory conditions such as vaginal dryness, hot sweats and autoimmune conditions which are common at this stage of our lives. Post birth control syndrome is where your periods may not have returned or have returned and are now heavy or light or painful or irregular – this is a common problem for many women and is another area that Katrina loves working with.

Children’s health and weight loss are the other areas that really benefit with the support of a Naturopath.

Katrina incorporates both traditional and scientific practices into designing a personalised treatment plan for you. This includes herbal medicine (liquid or capsule), nutrition and dietary plans, easy to incorporate lifestyle changes with the essential support that you need. You may also require functional testing to really get to the nitty gritty of what’s going on inside, for example food sensitivities are very common in all areas of digestive and hormonal health.

Your personalised treatment plan will have you feeling vibrant, full of energy, thinking clearer, sleeping better, feeling lighter and healthy once again – Repair, Re-balance, Restore!

SIBO & Digestive Health

SIBO, IBS, IBD, Candida, Reflux, Bloating, Leaky Gut, Food Sensitivities, Parasites and more….

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) affects many of us on a daily basis and the symptoms are very similar to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). SIBO is associated with the malabsorption of nutrients. Bacteria are normally found in the large intestine where they are happy going about their business of keeping our bodies healthy with the correct microbiome. SIBO is usually caused from post infectious gastroenteritis, medications, chronic stress or altered anatomy – surgical interventions causing scarring, adhesions and malnutrition.

Astonishingly 84% of IBS patients exhibit bacterial overgrowth based on the lactulose breath testing results (SIBOtest.com.au).

SIBO can result in – diarrhoea, constipation, alternating diarrhoea/constipation, food sensitivities, abdominal cramping, bloating, flatulence, burping, reflux (these link in with IBS), joint pain, skin rashes, iron and b12 deficiency and respiratory conditions, such as asthma (SIBOtest.com.au).

Conditions associated with SIBO – fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, coeliac disease, interstitial cystitis, diverticulitis, leaky gut, candida, chronic prostatitis, acne rosacea, restless leg syndrome, (SIBOtest.com.au).

Other digestive health issues include – food sensitivities – histamine intolerance, oxalate, salicylate and sulphate sensitivities, mouth ulcers, haemorrhoids, gallbladder or pancreatic inflammation, autoimmune conditions, bacterial – Helicobacter pylori, parasites – Blastocystis hominis, Giardia duodenalis, and fungal infections.

* Naturopathic Digestive Health Support includes – comprehensive case taking, treatment & dietary plans, supplements and ordering your SIBO breath test. Katrina may also require you to have further testing to be done if required as part of a change in your treatment plan.

Women’s Health for Women of all ages

Perimenopause and Menopause and the conditions associated with this transition; Hormone Imbalances; Post Birth Control Syndrome; Auto-Immune Diseases, Thyroid, Diabetes, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome; Inflammatory Diseases; Cardiovascular Health, Anxiety, Insomnia; Menstruation Irregularities and Healthy Pregnancies.

Women’s heath covers such a vast range of conditions that can be supported and treated with Natural Medicine.  Katrina sees women of all ages in regards many health conditions and imbalances and the above list is just some of them.

Holistic Menopause Support

Perimenopause generally starts in a woman’s 40s but can start earlier in some women. Perimenopause can last between 4 to 6 years (sometimes its shorter other times it can be longer depending on the individual) and is the lead up to menopause (in your 50s).

Perimenopause is the beginning of a lot of hormonal changes and fluctuations within your body. You may notice that your thyroid isn’t functioning as well as it should be, you have issues with your blood pressure, cardiovascular problems such as heart palpitations or arrhythmias. Inflammatory diseases are flaring up causing joint pain, arthritis, Type II Diabetes along with other types of autoimmune conditions (I feel the list is constantly growing with this!)

Most women find that they cannot lose weight as easily as they once did and find that even though they have kept eating the same diet and exercising (which used to work) they are now gaining weight. This is partly due to your metabolism slowing down, hormonal fluctuations, problems falling asleep or staying asleep, night sweats, exhaustion, mood changes, migraines or hot flushes and changes in your vaginal microbiome (pain and dryness) – these contributing factors can cause poor dietary choices as you can feel rundown, exhausted or overwhelmed by these changes.

To help you ease through perimenopause and transition into menopause Katrina will create a beautiful, holistic package tailor made just for you!

* Please note that there is so much a Naturopath can assist you with that will have you feeling vibrant and bouncing through this stage of your life!

Another condition that has a special interest for Katrina is Post Birth Control Syndrome (PBCS) – this can cause irregular periods, hormonal changes (infertility, hypothyroidism), body composition changes (weight gain), Mood Disorders, Digestive Symptoms (Constipation, Diarrhoea, Bloating), Acne, Immune Imbalances, Hair Loss and rebound of symptoms that put you on the pill or contraception initially.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or are still taking any form of hormonal birth control Katrina can certainly assist you whilst taking these products.

Thyroid health, Autoimmune Disease and Inflammatory conditions are on the rise and affects us all in various ways leading to multiple health concerns if left untreated. Katrina uses a holistic approach to treat these conditions and you will be feeling vibrant once again.

Acute Consultations are great for people who have acute conditions such as a cold, flu, headache/migrane, hayfever or are having trouble sleeping or muscular aches and pains.

Acute Consultations are also for current clients requiring another prescription and a quick chat if changes to their current treatment is required.

Autumn and the cooler months generally bring on a number of conditions, mainly a common cold or flu and they can usually be treated with a number of products and a quick check of your diet and lifestyle can bring about good results in a short period of time.
