Never happier than hitting
the fall line down a steep couloir.

Mr James Hancock

B.SC. Health Naturopathy, Fellow ANTA

As a biochemist I was a skeptic of Natural Therapies. After developing a chronic inflammatory disease and undergoing symptomatic medical treatment, I was challenged to delve deeper and open my mind and experience to the curative potential of integrative Natural Medicine and its richer understanding of the levels of Human health.

Special interests

Natural fertility and Inflammatory bowel disease.

Philosophy

You can’t change your chronological age.
But you can optimize your biological age & potential.
I enjoy going backwards skipping and laughing!

Margaret Boyd-Squires

BHSc.-Naturopathy, DipAppSc -Naturopathy, CertRelaxationMassage. Member ATMS since 1995

Philosophy

"First and foremost Margaret believes in disease prevention.”

Margaret is a Naturopath with over 25 years experience. Her specialty is detox and gut imbalance which is often at the core of many symptoms. She believes in reducing inflammation as it is a driver of many diseases, and she recently published a book on this topic. Weight loss, immune, hormonal and adrenal imbalances and problems with skin, tiredness and lymphatic congestion are things she frequently and successfully treats. She uses a combination of diet, herbal medicine and nutrients. Her lymphatic drainage is renowned for aiding the removal of toxins from the body and she also offers ear candling.

Margaret uses screening tools to help recognise how different signs and symptoms may relate to your health status. This screening is an optional tool often carried out at the initial appointment and at any time during the treatment. It allows you to see the positive effects that your diet, lifestyle and supplemental program are having on your health. Through this screening Margaret may be able to develop more effective health strategies tailor-made for you.

Functional pathology tests will be undertaken where necessary including food intolerance testing, genetic testing, heavy metal testing, adrenal, thyroid and hormonal function tests, and microbiome testing. Patients are also encouraged to bring along any medical test results that they already have.

Margaret has a loyal following of patients, many of whom have been consulting with her for many years.

Testimonials

I presented to Margaret in July 2015 with many ailments but the biggest being my severe Crohn’s Disease. After 4 months of seeing her I have felt better than I have in years. She has educated me about food and its properties and helped me get on top of my Crohn’s by really thinking about what I am putting into my body. Last week (November 2015) I was given the fantastic news by my Gastroenterologist that I am in clinical remission for the very first time in almost 4 years!! Margaret’s role in this has been pivotal and I cannot thank her enough for what she has done for me. I highly recommend Margaret and her services.

Jane Collopy

B Health Sci (Naturopathy), Member NHAA, Cert IV Massage, Grad Dip Ed, B Arts/B Theology.

My work as a naturopath has been formed by my family. My parents were doctor and nurse, and stories from their patients and friends continue to remind me that their prime value was looking after the person in front of them, not just the disease they presented with. This value was consolidated for me when we looked after my dad through to his death from brain cancer, and many years later when I looked after my mum through end stage kidney disease.

What I love about being a naturopath is helping patients understand the huge amount of change they can achieve in their health through natural means, be it diet and lifestyle, supplementing nutritionals, or stimulating and balancing the body with herbs and homoeopathics. At the same time, it is really valuable to know how to combine this with the benefits of western medicine, particularly in the treatment of cancer. My passion for helping patients live well with cancer, particularly through chemotherapy and radiation therapy, has led to the publication of my first book, Safe and Effective Natural Therapies to Help You Through Cancer, due for release in the last part of 2015.

“Awareness of what is causing our health complaints empowers us. Once we understand the drivers, we can intervene with often very simple changes to get much better results.”
