Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) affects many of us on a daily basis. 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 micro-biome. SIBO is usually caused from post infectious gastroenteritis, medications, chronic stress, 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, 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).

Feeling Exhausted, Overwhelmed or Stressed out?

This is tailor made for you, as these feelings affects all of us differently!

Chronic stress which leads to burnout or exhaustion can cause addictive behaviours, digestive health issues, anxiety, insomnia, menstrual problems, thyroid conditions, fatigue, poor memory retention and affects your HPA-axis (Brain and Adrenals) connection.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises burnout in the workforce – the signs are:-

1. feeling exhausted, no energy;

2. cynicism (thinking the worst, suspicion, bleak outlook for the future) and not seeing the good in anyone;

3. feeling disengaged, no connection to work (not wanting to go to work or be at work);

4. unhappiness (at work or in our personal lives);

5. change in appetite;

6. change in sleeping habits.

Stress/burnout/exhaustion affects our wellness – our mind, body and spirit. It’s important to look at different ways to alleviate your stress levels and incorporate wellness into your daily routine. Its all about creating with the help of a Naturopath a more balanced lifestyle. Self Care is essential as the saying goes ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’!

Katrina incorporates herbal medicine, nutrition, reiki and flower essences along with life style changes into your personalised treatment.

While anxiety is usually a natural and short-lived reaction to a stressful situation, for some people anxious thoughts, feelings, or physical symptoms can become chronic, severe and upsetting, and interrupt daily life. Severe, frequent, recurring, and persistent anxiety symptoms may be considered an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental health disorder diagnosed in Australia affecting around 14% of Australians every year (Australian Psychological Society, 2019.)

What are the symptoms of anxiety? Anxiety is characterized by uneasiness, apprehension, fear or terror, panic, worry, dread, and/or uncertainty. Physical symptoms which often escort the feelings of anxiousness including insomnia, jitters, fear, shortness of breath, sweating, heart palpitations or rapid heart rate, decreased sex drive, diarrhea, chest pain, and/or nausea.

Anxiety can turn into a larger health problem if the symptoms persist and become excessive or when symptoms interfere with regular activities of daily life, or cause emotional stress.

As a Naturopath Katrina uses traditional herbal medicine to create formulas that are tailor made to treat your symptoms. Katrina also uses a nutritional ‘food as medicine’ approach that will nourish your body and help to decrease your anxiety.  Katrina is also a Reiki Practitioner and incorporates the healing energy of Reiki into her treatment plans. Flower Essences are also prescribed as they have beautiful energetic healing properties.

Holistic Menopause Support Package

  • 6 Week Base Package is $650 (testing included)
  • 12 Week Ultimate Package $1095 (testing included)

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.

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 – 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 has created a beautiful, holistic package tailor made just for you!
