We base our clinic’s services on the five elements that sustain life – water, air, food, sunlight and the fifth element of electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF). These elements allow a healing momentum to arise and thus enable the body to return to homeostasis or a ‘perfect balance’ and health.

We apply methods that have been used by Naturopaths for centuries – just with a very modern twist.

When researching what is the “best” treatment for your condition, no matter what it may be, navigating the ‘mine field’ of complementary medicine information and treatments can be overwhelming…

However, when you relate to the body from a holistic and functional perspective, you understand promoting adaptive capacity to restore balance is paramount – but how to proceed?

At Core, our experienced practitioners correct mitochondrial dysfunction, modulate the immune system, support effective detoxification, heal the gut, and regulate the nervous system…

Evaluate functional lab work, utilize microscopes, urine and saliva assessment, decipher organic acid and stool analysis, and provide ‘gold standard’ metabolic and longevity assessments including VO2 Max testing …

Understand the impacts of traumas and mental / emotional / spiritual disturbances, balance hormones, assess nutrition, test heavy metal burden and micro nutrient deficiencies, incorporate genomic and epigenetic testing…

Use the best natural medicines and nutraceuticals whether anti-inflammatories, adaptogens, nervines, binders, hormone regulators, medicinal mushrooms, or proteolytic enzymes…

AND are up-to-date on the latest and greatest in all things “alternative” treatment, providing adaptive medical technologies like Hyperbaric Oxygen, Hyperthermia, Ozone, ReOxy IHHT and Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapies – all under one roof…

When you are diagnosed with a chronic disease or potentially life threating illness, you quickly become an expert in ALL of these different areas as quickly as you can and furthermore surround yourself with those who already are.

An understanding of “the big picture” when it comes to holistic healing, be it for cancer, auto immune disease, peak performance or anything else is essential for best outcomes.

Our Approach

The directors of Core Naturopathics see the future of health care based around a preventative or wellness model. People will proactively seek options, make choices and strategise for the prevention and treatment of their dis-ease.

Our approach provides the resources for you to adapt more effectively and therefore return to homeostasis and a state of self-regulation. Our clinic supports individuals by providing the resources, management and skills required to independently resolve this natural process.  Our ‘deceptively simple’ approach is to build and ensure a healing surplus of energy. Each system within the clinic is directly supportive of each other, which induces a “telescopic-like” response – as you extend the telescope you are able to see further.

All recommendations and therapies at the clinic are based on measuring and supporting the governing control mechanisms of health:

  • Are the right switches being turned on or off?
  • Is the signal getting through?
  • Is your system overburdened, blocked or lacking in some way?
  • How far from balance has your system moved and what is required to restore capacity for self regulation and health?

A system of care whose focus is on health maintenance and its regulation, rather than one focused on disease and the use of medications to suppress its symptoms.

PerfectionOptimal Health

The next ‘big leap’ in the field of healthcare will not come from any new device or discovery but from the broad adoption of traditional approaches that support the body’s self-healing ability and capacity for adaptation.
