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.
Making an appointment with Lindsay was the best decision I’ve made. As a busy mum, I was lacking the energy to get through the day and was feeling run down. In a few short sessions, Lindsay has taught me so much about my health and we’ve made a few small easy and practical changes to assist me in achieving my optimal health. I’m feeling the best I’ve felt in years and I can’t stop telling people about my experience. Lindsay goes above and beyond and is always available for questions. She has such a warm nature and it is so evident that she is passionate about helping others!– Erin J.
Emma is our family Naturopath and finding her was akin to finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Not only has she helped my son recover from anaemia and years of recurring tonsillitis, she’s been a constant support to my husband and I whilst travelling. She has also supported my Asperger’s daughter; ensuring she has all the extras she needs to match her amazing brain, while solving her itchy skin issues. She was always available to discuss our progress and was willing to work with us solo or parallel to medical staff. She has a very grounded approach to all the different ways that our bodies need to be supported in order for us to be healthy. I can’t thank or recommend Emma enough!– Joanna P.
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.
Over the last 3+ years, Lindsay has helped me gain more of an understanding and awareness of my overall health. I now feel the best I’ve ever felt, and I’m very grateful to have her help and support. She is a beautiful and nurturing person that I have recommended highly to family and friends.– Stef K.
From the initial consultation with Emma, I have felt supported and valued as both a patient and a mother. As a new Mum, it can be so overwhelming. Emma has always guided and helped me with recognizing the importance of being at my best so that I can care for my daughter to the best of my ability. Emma’s approach to Naturopathy is one that resonates with me. I believe her experience in the industry, as well as being a Mum herself, has given me a realistic perspective on overall good health for my family. I am grateful to Emma for her care and endless knowledge. I feel blessed and lucky to have such an amazing woman as our family Naturopath.– Stacey H.
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.
My life changed when I started seeing Lindsay. Her gentle and warm approach made me feel very comfortable in opening up to her; this was really important to me. In one session, she had me on the right path to better health and wellbeing. I highly recommend Lindsay’s services.– Chiara H.
I saw Emma after being prescribed medication that wasn’t relieving symptoms that were seriously affecting my ability to work and care for my 2 toddlers. After a very thorough conversation, Emma clearly explained what was happening to my body. I felt like finally someone had really heard me and understood me and my body; there was light at the end of the tunnel and that I was going to be ok. Fast-forward a month and I am feeling back to my usual self. I 100% credit Emma with this change. Emma has incredible knowledge, unbelievable understanding and explains everything in a great way so you feel informed.– Bianca E.
