Stress, health, wellness, sickness and our immune systems – these are all things that have been top of mind for many people over recent months.
If you’ve been suffering from, or struggling with, an ailment and not had much luck finding a solution you are probably looking for new options. And maybe even a natural alternative.
Naturopathy is one of those natural alternatives but something that not everyone knows a lot about. To try and learn more and find out how it can assist our overall health we spoke with a patient of Mullen Natural Health Centre – one of the leading naturopathy practices in Australia, located right here in Hamilton.
Shawna turned to Mullen Health two years ago.
She was looking for answers, help, and, hope, after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (and two more autoimmune conditions) about seven years ago, which left her in significant pain.
One medical solution was to take low levels of chemotherapy for the rest of her life but Shawna was concerned about the impact that would have on her immunity.
So, she decided to seek alternatives.
“Diet and lifestyle changes made dramatic improvements in my pain levels and effectively stopped the progression I found that I couldn’t quite keep that happy state all the time,” Shawna said.
“Stress would throw me into a pain tailspin as well as wintertime; both together left me suddenly crippled with pain that I couldn’t get under control with my usual methods.”
Using a variety of testing methods – many that most of us would not have heard or dreamt were available – Mullen Natural Health Centre was able to establish what was out of balance for Shawna.
A treatment plan of supplements, exercise, and supportive natural therapies was put together for her and the result?
“I am out of pain! And thanks to Mullen Health, I know WHY and what to do when (or If) it comes backs again,” Shawna said
Of course, we are all different and results for everyone will vary but if you are in Newcastle and looking for a new way to address your health in this new normal, perhaps naturopathy could be for.
Shawna told us that she was: “forever grateful to Peter and the team at Mullen’s for helping me out of a nightmare of pain and continuing to monitor my health regularly so that I don’t fall off the rails again.
I wish I had grown up going to a naturopath as regularly as I went to a GP – I’m sure my life would have been healthier for longer,”
