“After the first session and changing my child’s diet, I was able to achieve results! Fiona is able to explain the concepts with a depth of understanding and knowledge that is easy to follow. Her advice has made a huge positive impact to our family.”
“A big heartfelt thank you Fiona for the changes in my son. When he first saw Fiona he was suffering from terrible anxiety and too nervous to leave the house. He is now a different person and so much happier and with none of the anxiety that plagued him prior to his initial consultation”
My aim is to ensure your child isn’t suffering from treatable or preventable ailments. This class offers practical solutions and nutritional guidance to help you understand the underlying cause of your child’s condition. Armed with this information you will feel empowered with knowledge on how to nurture your child’s wellbeing so they can enjoy the optimal health they deserve.
“On the very first morning of following Fiona’s dietary changes, I noticed a difference in both my sons, they were sitting quietly playing and enjoying each other’s company instead of fighting and screaming at each other.
“Fiona has been very helpful in providing a plan for my 6 year old. It wasn’t a band aid solution and took lifestyle changes and effort from the whole family with the information she provided. A couple of months later we have definitely noticed a difference in him and the changes have not only benefited him but our entire family.”
“My daughter has severe eczema on her hands and is very anxious of anything that is unfamiliar to her. I was recommended Fiona because I knew there was something going on with her gut health which was causing her skin to react. However, I was blown away when I learnt the extent of the Guts role in her mental wellbeing. Fiona stepped us through the critical role the Gut plays in informing our entire wellbeing, beyond the physical. With her delightful and humorous way, we are implementing her strategies and I already have my other family members booked in to see her to have their Gut health reviewed. I cannot recommend this delightful practitioner enough.”
“I have been looking for a good naturopath for my year old son who is on the spectrum and found Fiona. She is amazing, lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable. She explains the Gut – Brain connection very well. I’m looking forward to our healing journey together.”
The body’s second largest nervous system resides deep within the gut and it’s in constant communication with the central nervous system found in the brain. This means the gut and the brain talk to each other. If your child suffers from digestive issues such as food intolerances, constipation, tummy pains, diarrhoea or a leaky-gut these can all interfere with the communication pathways and impact the functioning of their brain.
Here we look at the dietary component of your child’s condition and especially how much sugar they are consuming. Sugar is hidden in so many foods and some kids are eating 30 to 50+ teaspoons a day. Eating lots of this highly addictive sweetener is followed soon after by the inevitable sugar slump and the symptoms mimic ADHD. These include poor focus and concentration, behavioural issues, tantrums etc.
This is where I take you through my top supplements to nurture and nourish your child’s brain to better health.
The Brain and the Gut are constantly chattering to each other, conveying messages up and down a communication superhighway between the Brain and the Gut. This allows the Brain to act as a watchdog, to supervise the complex daily functions of the Gut. They work in unison to perform the complicated tasks of digesting food, regulating appetite and metabolism, releasing enzymes to breakdown food, absorption of nutrients and the eventual elimination of wastes.
We have all experienced the sensations of the brain communicating with the gut, maybe without realising it. Most of us can relate to feelings of nausea, butterflies in the pit of our stomach or that gut-wrenching feeling that accompanies anxiety and nervousness. When our brain registers that we are out of our comfort zone, the gut instantly registers this information which results in uncomfortable gut sensations like the ‘butterflies’ in the tummy we associate with being in a stressful situation.
