Naturopathy (also known as Natural Medicine) is commonly referred to as an alternative medical system.
Naturopathy doesn’t try to compete with conventional medicine, rather it endeavours to complete it. This form of healing slots right into the obvious gaps of the conventional health care system. In this sense, all health care systems are complementary to one another.
Naturopathy focuses on natural remedies and the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach and minimal use of surgery and drugs. Its approach emphasises prevention through stress reduction and a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Naturopaths specialise in preventative health care, as well as care for chronic health conditions.
Lisa has a particular interest in:
— increasing resilience to stress
— correcting food intolerance
— improving thyroid function
— increasing energy levels
— correcting mood disorders
(anxiety, depression, and OCD)
— improving sleep quality
— making sense of all the conflicting health information ‘out-there’.
And while Naturopaths + Medical Herbalists do not deal with extreme acute situations (e.g. heart attacks, strokes, anaphylactic shock, and broken bones) we can support you to recover from these conditions (in conjunction with your conventional treatments.) Take this blog-post for example.
Every Naturopath and/or Medical Herbalist has a unique approach to the way they practice. To get an idea of Lisa’s approach, please check out the blog she writes about health: www.lisasaid.so
Lisa Fitzgibbon is a qualified (2006), experienced and registered Naturopath + Medical Herbalist
Lisa has been involved in the Natural Health industry since 2004. She draws on her professional training and experience, as well as her own personal experience to bring you realistic, holistic health advice.
Lisa has the following qualifications:
Bachelor of Health Sciences – Complementary Medicine (Charles Sturt University in Australia)
Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy (South Pacific College of Natural Medicine in New Zealand)
Advanced Diploma in Herbal Medicine (South Pacific College of Natural Medicine in New Zealand)
She is a registered practitioner with NZAMH
Note: Lisa primarily treats adults (those above 12 years old). She does however deal with children + babies in regards to establishing + treating food intolerance.
Having suffered from a hormonal imbalance (and acne) for the past four years and visiting over nine types of practitioners (specialists, doctors, dermatologists and naturopaths) for some kind of solution with no results, I found Lisa.
Her positive and confident approach makes it easy to confide in her about any issues you have and a few months down the track with Lisa, my hormones are in check, my acne has cleared. And best of all I have my happiness and confidence back!
And it gives you a BIG stamp for the quality of advice given and changes I have made. When I was drinking those two smoothies before having breakfast I had to rush to toilet within 30 minutes and it was more like an explosion (your blog has also helped in making me aware this was not good).
As a Naturopath & Medical Herbalist, she often gets asked a lot of the same questions on general health. She also sees a lot of people making the same health mistakes. People get confused by the enormous amount of (and often conflicting) information available.
Her response to this was to create a blog about health: LISA SAID SO (www.lisasaid.so).
This blog is also used as a reference tool for her clients.
“…so entertaining and informative! Keep doing what you are doing!”
“Thanks for an awesome post as always Lisa; you are so thorough, clever and entertaining!”
