Kristen believes that prevention is better than cure and that we live in a world where we often mask a lot of our symptoms, which provides us with short term relief without any long term benefit to our symptoms or body. This is where Kristen can help you by identifying and supporting the root cause of your symptoms providing you with long term improvements to your symptoms and overall health. By working with her patients to provide individualized treatments plans that are effective and achievable. With a special interest in stress management, sleep disturbances, fatigue, anxiety and digestive disturbances – including bloating, IBS, cramping and the gut brain connection.
Kristen has previously worked in community pharmacy for over 5 years which has given her some great insight into medications and their benefits/risks.
Kristen is fully insured and a member of the Naturopaths & Herbalist association of Australia (NHAA).
