Jeanette’s journey with natural therapies started when a close relative was diagnosed at a young age with Type 1 Diabetes. This resulted in her reassessing her family’s health and diet with a focus on healthy eating. When her two children were born Jeanette developed a passion to know more about the body and this led her to completing a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
Jeanette’s focus as a Naturopath is to treat each client as an individual as she is a firm believer in everyone’s uniqueness, thus her treatment plans are individualised to each client. Jeanette will address any symptoms presented but will also look to treat the cause of any disease process. She is passionate about educating her clients to take control of their health. Jeanette treats her clients using a combination of western herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, diet and flower essences.
Jeanette works closely with other health professionals where required, and ensures her treatments are evidence based. She regularly attends educational seminars to keep her knowledge current. She practices as a general Naturopathic practitioner but her special interest areas include weight loss, mood, anxiety and stress disorders, thyroid issues and menopause.
Even as a child Jessica knew that she wanted to help people. As an adult she saw how living a holistic lifestyle and making natural health choices could hugely improve your wellbeing and how important that was for her to share with others. She is now an experienced and dedicated Naturopath who began practicing in 2002. Having worked in the health industry since 1993, she came to see that there was more to health care than a symptom based approach. Her love of science, chemistry and the workings of the body lead her to study science and psychology at UWA and biochemistry, genetics and biomedicine at ECU. It was Naturopathy, however, that provided the holistic approach to health that she was looking for.
Jessica is all about family health and wellness so she is very excited to return to Karrinyup Wellness Centre after extended maternity leave. She loves working alongside other practitioners and the shared care that provides for her clients. Since becoming a mother Jessica’s love for working with families has grown, whether it be helping their journey in becoming parents or helping each member to grow and flourish. She is passionate about paediatric care and providing the best start in life for our children. Jessica also enjoys working alongside clients assisting in energy, sleep, stress and mood support; hormone balance, including adrenal and thyroid; detox and gut health; and immune and allergy support.
Jessica has a love of herbal medicine and incorporating individually tailored medicines for her patients. She will draw on different tools for each of her patients to really understand what is underlying any health concerns. These can include functional medicine and testing, iridology, nutrition, biochemistry, homeopathy, flower essences and muscle testing. Jessica aims to ensure a balance of physical, spiritual and emotional care to her patients and her practice.
Jessica believes there is nothing more rewarding than impacting someone’s health for the better. Natural medicine approaches are life changing and make what she does so worthwhile. Everybody deserves to feel good and reach their potential.
