Naturepure Women’s Health Clinic Naturopath, Herbalist and Nutritionist Rebekah Bryce is passionate about improving women’s health. Her aim is to heal, energise and restore balance, enabling full enjoyment of life. A comprehensive health appraisal is conducted and a range of non-invasive practices are incorporated in the treatment plan.
NUTRITIONAL AND DIETARY ADVICE – one of Naturopathy’s foundations. A poor diet stops the body from functioning well and a build up of toxins can contribute to a range of illnesses. A variety of weight loss, detoxifying and wellness programs are used as part of a diet and lifestyle management plan.
HERBAL MEDICINE – is effective in restoring and balancing hormones. It can assist in increasing fertility, reducing PMT and eliminating menopausal symptoms. Herbs and nutritional supplementation are also effective in strengthening the immune system and assisting the nervous system and adrenals in times of stress, anxiety and fatigue. As an experienced herbalist, custom made formulations are prepared and tailored to individual needs and symptoms. A full herbal dispensary is useful in creating customised medicines in the most bio-available form for best absorption and utilisation.
DIAGNOSTICS – If deemed necessary, various Diagnostic tests may be performed including blood tests, stool samples, urinary analysis, saliva tests, hair analysis and the D.U.T.C.H test (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones). Laboratories used are: Clinical Labs, Melbourne Pathology, NutriPath, Interclinical Laboratories and Aquarian Laboratories. Tests can be useful in determining hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, infections, microbiome and gut health and toxin build up or exposure.
COUNSELLING – Emotional problems, anxiety and stress can interfere with the healing process. Mental and emotional issues can often manifest as a physical symptom in the body and specific attention to healing these areas may be required. Techniques can include stress management strategies and life coaching.
NATURAL FERTILITY, PRE-CONCEPTION AND PREGNANCY CARE – Rebekah has had many pregnancy success stories from her many clients that have had healthy babies through her assistance. Many couples struggling to conceive and looking for an alternative to invasive and costly IVF and fertility treatments choose to seek natural alternatives. Rebekah is experienced in providing preconception care and assists in improving the nutritional and hormonal health of the future mother which can often lead to a positive pregnancy and healthy baby. Once the desired pregnancy is achieved Naturepure Women’s Health Clinic is available for pregnancy care and advice in conjunction with a medical practitioner.
If IVF treatment is already underway, you may have a higher success rate with improved health and support, in this case treatment would be focused on support and working with the IVF / fertility treatment for greater health, stress management, emotional support and management of dietary choices.
Rebekah is also experienced in providing natural family planning and maintenance of hormonal health at any stage of life.
MENOPAUSE and PERI-MENOPAUSE – In times of hormonal change such as Menopause and Peri-Menopause, natural therapies can be extremely useful in relieving many of the uncomfortable symptoms that women can experience. Confidence can be felt through Rebekah’s understanding, reassuring and caring nature as she discovers the issues that need addressing and correcting, helping to restore health, peace and balance to the body.
