My name is Bridget McDonald (née Backhouse) and I am a degree qualified Naturopath. I am passionate about the healing power of herbal medicine and am dedicated to evidence-based practice.
After struggling with my own health, naturopathy helped me regain my vitality - and that's exactly what I want for you!
Naturopathy has the ability to treat a wide range of conditions and concerns but I have a special interest in supporting the health of students. I know how hard it is to balance all the demands of student life and stay healthy... but with good nutrition, a supportive lifestyle and the benefits of herbal medicine, you can THRIVE during your studies.
Student life is stressful (I've been there!). As a student, I let stress run my life and cause major health problems and now I want to help you avoid the same.
Chronic stress can cause inflammation in the body leading to poor physical and mental health - not a winning combination! Naturopathy provides a holistic and natural way of managing, reducing and treating the impacts of stress on your body, using good food, herbs and lifestyle techniques.
Sleep is vital, especially for students! Getting a good night's sleep is important for the health of your whole body - hormones, brain function, immunity and inflammation, and so much more. Herbs, a healthy lifestyle and improving your nutrition can drastically improve your sleep quality. Naturopathy provides so many natural and safe options for helping you fall asleep and stay asleep!
