She loves to use her legs as transport, loves a cheeky glass of red every now and again and can’t live without her daily coffee ritual.
The combination of two stressful events happening at once saw her health take a complete nosedive about 10 years ago.
Her stomach started hurting all the time. She couldn’t bring herself to eat regularly, and when she did, the food didn’t taste like anything.
She missed quite a bit of school over this period due to her debilitating digestive symptoms.
She had a gastroenterologist look through her bowel and stomach with a camera, only to be told her colon was very healthy and that she had chronic gastroenteritis/IBS of unknown cause.
In the end, he mother booked her in with a naturopath and it changed everything.
The naturopathic approach has transformed Lauren into a passionate advocate for lifestyle medicine. So much so, that she decided to study to achieve a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), so she can help others with Nutrition and Herbal Medicine, too.
Using what nature has already provided for us to promote health and wellness just makes sense. Lauren wants to make a plan with you so you can feel empowered to take control of your symptoms to work, travel and enjoy your life without limits!
Consultation with Lauren

This is primarily a session in which Lauren gets to know you and how your health issues impact your everyday life. It is essential to understand how your life is impacted because this is what will guide treatment.
Lauren may order some testing for you to have done, as well, to get a greater understanding of what’s happening in your body.
In follow-up consultations Lauren will assess the progress of your health since the last consultation and you’ll work together to tweak things so you continue to improve.
