About Me …
“Passionate About Empowerment”
BHSc (Naturopathy), D.Th.D, D.N.Med, D.Iridol
Hi, I’m Cassi and I’m here to help you achieve mental and physical wellness.
Do you struggle with hormonal issues or mood disturbances such as anxiety and depression? By hormones I don’t just mean our fertility hormones, but also hormones that affect our thyroid and adrenals and metabolism … and in turn how these affect our vitality, our weight, our skin, our sense of self … our general well-being.
Feel like your moods are on a roller-coaster, putting on weight, struggling with anxiety – yet constantly fatigued and wondering “what’s going on?”
That’s where I come in. Not only do I understand the biochemical processes going on in the body, but I’ve experienced it too! Working in the busy corporate / hospitality world running on adrenal reserves not knowing when my next day off would be, going through IVF to reaching menopause and experiencing some of the issues that comes with our bodies when our hormonal patterns change.
I get it … and can provide natural solutions to support you. I practice Functional Medicine (medicine that addresses the underlying causes of disease) and your health will be assessed by me on foundations of holistic philosophy to empower you to achieve and maintain wellness.
Mix my nerdiness with empathy and humour, and that is the type of practitioner I am. I’m passionate about empowerment – it is your journey but I am here to champion you and help you make better choices and guide you towards your health goals. The nerd in me loves to research, to understand what is happening at a biochemical and pathophysiological level, and to study pathology and functional reports. The empathetic practitioner in me will care, listen, be non-judgemental, honour your story, give you time and a safe space to be you. The comedian in me will enjoy a good laugh with you. Humour is an amazing remedy.
At times, this includes the use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques, combined with therapeutic diets, supplements, herbs, stress-management techniques, etc. Providing practical nutritional and lifestyle advice combined with herbal medicine, I create individual wellness programs for YOU – each one is different.
I strongly believe in the Natural Medicine Principle “Docere as Teacher” …. educating my clients on wellness – not just the “what to do”, but the “why you need to” is so important in understanding not just the changes needed to be made for wellness, but to understand the journey that may have led to imbalance in the first place.
Why Trust Me?
I have been practicing and teaching natural medicine since 2007 on the Gold Coast, having first graduated in Nutritional Medicine and Iridology in London in the 1990s, then a further Bachelor of Health Science Degree (Naturopathy) in 2007.
I’ve done thousands of consults, practicing for over 12 years at a very busy integrative clinic (The Medical Sanctuary), and now practice from my home based clinic to offer more flexibility for my clients and educational commitments.
I am registered with the Australian Natural Therapies Association (ANTA) as well as the Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists (ARONAH).
I love animals, and have two fur babies you can meet if you want to. This is Molly, but we also have “cheeky Chase”, our little Fox Terrier boy ….. (don’t worry, if you don’t like dogs they are put away before you arrive and you will only meet them if you ask)
If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, book a consult today and take that first step towards getting back on the path to wellness – you deserve it !!
