I’ve had the good fortune of specializing in natural healthcare for women for over 17 years. My interest in natural medicine was sparked when I was young. In fact, I started studying exercise physiology when I was 16 years old and ended up devoting my university degree to naturopathy, herbal medicine and nutritional medicine. I have dedicated my career to the application of this information to women’s health. My vision is to help you enjoy more freedom in your life by improving your health.
I feel fortunate to do the work I am passionate about — and I think this comes through to my patients…and is a big reason why Women’s Health & Hormones has enjoyed so much success! A big thank you to all the wonderful women who have trusted me enough over the years to share their story and embrace my advice. Thanks to the power of Mother Nature’s medicine I have witnessed the life-changing capacity of the human body to heal and re-balance in the most incredible way possible.

What happens in the first visit with Emma?
The first step is to attend an Initial Health Appraisal with Emma. We have patients from all locations around Australia and the world and offer phone consultations or skype consultations for women who are not able to attend our local clinic.
At this appointment, Emma will discuss your symptoms with you and assess your medical history. After analysing your case Emma will know whether she can help you or whether you may be better suited to a different type of treatment or practitioner. If you are a good candidate for our clinic, Emma will discuss the treatment options that are available to you, her recommendations and an expected treatment timeline. Emma may ask you to attend an in-house testing appointment or refer you for external diagnostic testing and hormone testing if necessary. Emma is often able to prescribe one natural medication at the Initial Health Appraisal to get you started on the road to feeling better while we are gathering more information. Emma has a limited capacity to take on new patients and we have found this is the best process to get you the help you need.

At your second consultation you will receive a comprehensive Treatment Plan including all of our recommendations. Our goal is to both relieve your symptoms and address the underlying cause of any hormonal imbalance or other health concern. Addressing underlying causes will allow you to see long term results from your treatment. Nutrition, stress and lifestyle are some of the areas we will cover. Herbal and nutritional supplements may be prescribed to re-balance your hormones and restore and enhance your health and wellbeing. You are always in control. Everyone’s personal budgets are different so we prioritize our recommendations according to your goals. You may be asked to make some simple changes to your diet and lifestyle and we will give you as much support as we can to make this as easy as possible.
