Nutritional Medicine provides a holistic outlook on how nutrition impacts health, the relationship between diet and disease, as well as a focused understanding of how nutritional, dietary and lifestyle factors impact ones wellbeing. Nutritional Medicine combines food as medicine traditions and dietary therapy with recent scientific advances in nutritional biochemistry and therapeutics. Caryn views food, diet and nutritional supplements from the perspective of their therapeutic potential. She provides dietary advice to her clients and prescribes nutritional supplements, to assist in the treatment of a broad range of health conditions. Caryn’s aim is to identify the cause of dysfunction, educate the patient and develop a treatment plan, to re-establish and maintain wellbeing.
Naturopathy is a blend of natural therapies tested over time and supported by the best available scientific evidence. It does not just address symptoms or try to suppress them, but looks for the cause in order to resolve the imbalance.
Naturopathic principles are based on treating each person as an individual and treating the whole person, not just the affected area. Sometimes this may mean relying on supplementation and herbal medicine for treatment, but we strive to use natural options that are the least invasive as the primary option.
Naturopathy can alleviate a wide range of conditions and is suitable for all ages. Some of the more common conditions which Caryn can help with include fatigue, stress related ailments, digestive problems and hormonal imbalances. However, you do not need to be unwell to benefit from Naturopathy. Naturopathic treatments boost the body’s natural healing potential, restoring harmony and preventing disease.
Consultation Information- What to expect
“Everything is connected. To only look at the specific body part that feels unwell misses a large amount of information. For example, if you are experiencing bloating or digestive discomfort, I’m not only interested in your digestive health; I also look at your stress levels, diet, immune system, hormones, sleep, and physical fitness, because all of these can profoundly affect your digestion. I will look at how your systems are functioning, how they are interrelated and what needs attention in order to optimise your health.”
Caryn provides face to face Naturopathy and Nutrition consultations, undertakes an analysis of symptoms, undertakes research where needed and utilises testing where necessary.
On making your initial consultation appointment, you will be sent a comprehensive health assessment questionnaire which will also cover your medical history, current supplements and medications, presenting health complaints etc. Please bring this with you to your consultation.
The initial consultation includes a dietary analysis and a full health assessment.
The initial consultation may also include some of the following diagnositic tests:
Bio-Impedance Analysis – measuring fat percentage, muscle mass etc.

Treatment options include nutritional or herbal supplements, dietary planning, lifestyle advice etc – it is a comprehensive initial consultation and will take approximately 1hour.
The number of consultations needed will depend on your presenting symptoms and treatment plan Caryn draws up for youin the initial consultation – so she will be able to give you an idea on how often you will need to come back. Usually after 2-4 weeks you will have a first follow up.
