Naturopathy offers an alternative approach to medicine based on the theory that diseases can be successfully treated or prevented without the use of drugs by using more natural plant derived herbal medicines and using techniques such as control of diet, exercise, and massage. Naturopathy is both an art and a science where by the Naturopath holistically assesses your body and becomes attuned to how your body responds to herbal supplements and changes in your lifestyle. Naturopaths are prevention medicine specialists. Tyack Health’s Naturopath relies on scientific evidence in her clinical practice and complements other medical, psychological and musculoskeletal care.
The role of a naturopath is to work with a person to promote the natural healing of the body. Naturopathic medicine is based on treating the cause of an illness and aims to treat the body as a whole. The disease, illness or pain that the patient presents with may have a singular cause, but often has many different causes. A foundational naturopathy belief is that health is more than just the absence of disease and works on strengthening the body's natural defences. Naturopathic theory focuses on the human body’s ability to heal itself if it is supplied with the correct environment and the basic ingredients that can build new healthy cells.
Tyack health’s naturopath works collaboratively with the broad spectrum of other practitioners at Tyack Health and facilitates a healing environment for patients where both common and complex issues can be unravelled and prevented from returning.
Janelle has always had an interest in health. She struggled with eczema and acne growing up and completed her first liver cleanse whilst in highschool, in order to address her skin problems. Fast forward many years, after time spent working as a primary school teacher and then travelling around Australia, her struggles with eczema, which covered her whole body, lead her down a much more involved alternative healing path. It was on her journey that she learnt more about homeopathy, nutrition, gut health and fasting.
Every patient is unique and assessed as such. During your consultation, your naturopath will gather information to form a holistic view of your lifestyle, diet, exercise and family history. The presented ailments or complaints are then better contextualised to identify the root cause of your condition.
Treatment recommendations are built on understanding the root cause and also your preferences for how you prefer to be treated. During consultations the naturopath will make an effort to educate you about your health situation, so that you can better understand the impact of choices you make in your everyday life and the impact they can have on your long term health.
Naturopathic remedies when administered correctly assist to restore your body’s core balance leading to improved physical, mental and emotional health.
Do you experience any of the following?
If you have answered yes to at least two of the above you may very well be likely to have a condition called Adrenal Fatigue.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
It is usually caused by some form of stress, be it physical, emotional, psychological, environmental, infectious or a combination of these. Stress can take its toll in various ways; loss of a loved one, relocating, vehicle accident, losing your job and serious illness can be some of the worst stresses and then there are also the less obvious but ongoing ones like stress or unhappiness at the workplace, difficult relationships, environmental toxins and poor diet. Our adrenals respond to any kind of stress by releasing the necessary stress hormones to help you cope with your unique situation. When the amount of stress overextends the capacity of the body to compensate and recover from that stress, adrenal fatigue may present itself.
Adrenal Fatigue can also lead to other conditions or imbalances in the body. Below are just a few examples:
Deficiency in nutrients: When our stress levels are high our body’s demand for certain nutrients to help us cope with the stress increases. When these needs are not met we might start to get deficient in certain vitamins and minerals, especially magnesium and vitamin B. These deficiencies can lead to certain symptoms and can also exacerbate the adrenal fatigue symptoms.
Allergies: this can be associated with adrenal fatigue due to the increased release of cortisol – an important stress anti-inflammatory hormone – in response to histamine. Histamine is normally released when there is an allergy response. This causes the adrenals to work harder and the more fatigued they become the less cortisol is released causing histamine to inflame the tissues even more and allergies to increase and get out of control.

Fertility Naturopath Janelle Twine is experienced in working with hormonal health, in particular both female fertility and male fertility. Natural hormonal balancing through herbal medicine, supplementation, nutritional correction and lifestyle changes are a safe and effective approach for fertility treatment.
Janelle provides individuals and couples with an in-depth pre-conception plan that is developed to meet each individuals needs during an initial in-depth and thorough consultation to help address the following concerns:
It takes a healthy egg and healthy sperm around 4 months to mature therefore a pre-conception plan takes at least 3-4 months to address underlying issues relating to your fertility. Chemical exposure from food, water and the environment has an impact on your fertility as it can affect the health and longevity of your egg/sperm. These chemicals also act as endocrine (hormonal) disrupters which can play a key role in creating an imbalance in your hormones. A clean, healthy diet and lifestyle, balancing your hormones and correcting nutritional deficiencies, with the right support can significantly improve your fertility health and your chances of falling pregnant to enjoy a healthy pregnancy and baby.
