Claridge Naturopathics was founded in 1983 with the goal to give people power, choice and education about their healthcare. Each of our team members comes to work every day with the drive to better the lives of their clients. Just like you, we are regular people with work pressures, family pressures and all of the urgencies of the 21st century. This understanding enables us to be realistic and empathetic when it comes to designing your individual treatment plan. Furthermore, we are clear that if we show integrity and respect with all of our interactions with you, we have the best chance of delivering the results you deserve.
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness. This model is based on the principle that the body has the ability to heal itself and endeavours to prevent (and correct) disease and dysfunction without the use of drugs or surgery. Instead it uses evidence based Natural Therapies, including herbs, micronutrients and homoeopathy. It also incorporates lifestyle education, such as diet, exercise and stress management, to help people take control of their health and happiness. Our ultimate goal is to have you living a life with a clear understanding of how to stay well, without the need for ongoing medication.
Nutrition can be broken up into two categories: Macro and Micro. Macro nutrients are the caloric components of our foods; generally, known as carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Micro nutrients are the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, phytochemicals and antioxidants that are essential for nutritional health. Naturopaths and Holistic Nutritionists are the only practitioners who are tertiary trained in diagnosis and treatment protocols involving both macro and micro nutrition. Therefore, we can help you understand whether diet change, and/or supplementation, is the best strategy for you. Additionally, our qualifications in this area allow us to access, and prescribe, stronger and higher quality forms of micro nutrients. These amazing products help us to ensure you achieve your health goals quicker and more effectively.
The main premise of Holistic Care is that ‘one size does not fit all’. It requires your practitioner to analyse ALL elements of your lifestyle before creating a treatment plan. With this in mind, along with our focus on improving your psycho-physiological function, we are focused on habit change. Using our unique S.M.I.L.E. strategy, and Health Audit process, we factor in: environmental, dietary, activity, social, stress-management and life direction considerations when treating you. We also use evidence based supplementation to speed up the correction of your issues and always work toward empowering you to take control of your health.
I’ve been seeing Rob for 20 years or so and have always benefited from his skill and passion. Rob has encouraged me to have faith in myself. I have had some serious health issues and, after I had major surgery, I headed straight to Rob. With his encouragement, I embarked on a challenging journey of adjusting my diet which has been a life changer for me! It’s great that when I ask Rob when I need to see him next he responds with “when you feel you need to”; no unnecessary long series of appointments to be booked ahead. I just love it that Rob is proactive and now has an Annual Health Audit system in place! I cannot recommend Rob highly enough.– Ros M.
I went and saw Marnie in February 2020 and she has improved the quality of my life more than I could have ever imagined in a very short time. In my late 20s I was diagnosed by a GP with Fibromyalgia and have suffered from chronic pain for several years. When I went and saw Marnie, I was at my worst: I was not sleeping, I could not function at work, I was overweight. I did not know where to start to get my health back on track. Marnie put me on a meal & nutrition plan and I saw instant results, I was finally able to sleep, I would wake up and not be in pain, my foggy head went away and I lost weight. Over the 12 week program I managed to lose 15kg. I would never have ever imaged that the results would be this fantastic. I finally have my health back, and I feel amazing. I highly recommend Marnie. She has been such a fantastic support over the 12 week journey.- Anna F.
For 16 years, Rob has cared for our family, through traumatic health issues as well as improving our general health and wellbeing. Rob is a health professional who is continually learning and sharing his knowledge so that we can all strive to reach optimal health. His sincerity, honesty and attention to detail inspire confidence and I think that the wonderful team that has built up around him is proof of this.– Wendy B.
Finding a medical professional that has a genuine interest in trying to find the root cause of any symptoms, as well as show an interest in you overall health and well-being is almost impossible. Marnie does exactly that. I have been blown away with the amount of effort that Marnie has put into helping me to achieve my goals, the lengths that she has gone to with research and recommendations to assist with dietary requirements has been phenomenal. She has presented in a level of detail that I have never seen before; her consultations have been truly collaborative and she considers all angles (including my opinions & preferences) before making any suggestions.
I cannot recommend Marnie highly enough, a true professional that has a great sense of humour and genuinely cares for her client’s well-being.Chris E.
Rob has looked after my health, and that of my family members and friends, for over 25 years. The depth of knowledge Rob has across all issues from a simple head cold, to issues affecting the disabled, never ceases to amaze me, and I ALWAYS walk away from an appointment confident that I have a path back to optimal health.– Mark S.
I didn’t think I needed to see a Naturopath, but my wife made the appointment for me. I was actually really surprised at how much I got out of it. Marnie was knowledgeable and thoughtful. Her everyday tips and remedies have me feeling 10x better. I highly recommended beginning your health journey with Marnie.Tom H.
