Acute Consultations

There is increasing concern regarding the overuse of antibiotics and thus more and more people are looking for alternative options especially for common colds and the flu. Indeed, sometimes natural medicine can work wonders. However we are trained professionals and there is a time and a place for both natural and conventional medicine. If your presentation is serious, we reserve the right to recommend you visit a Doctor or emergency room immediately if we are concerned for your safety and wellbeing. We do not put our clients health at risk or our own professional integrity.

There are times when complementary therapies can be used alongside conventional medicine for better results. If you are taking prescribed drugs, we will need a full list of their names and the dosage to ensure we do not prescribe any supplements that may contraindicate.

Below is a list of acute presentations that natural medicine may assist with either used exclusively or alongside conventional medicine (as supported by clinical research):

  • Urinary tract infections: its particularly important to consider complementary medicine in the case of recurring urinary tract infections
  • Colds, viruses and compromised immune function in general (again, particularly if its recurring)
  • Cold sores
  • Sinus infections
  • Bronchitis and chest infections
  • Ear infections including in children
  • Diarrhea particularly following a bout of travel
  • Constipation
  • Gallstones
  • Conjunctivitis

If you are wondering if we can help you then please give us a call to discuss on 07 3398 1977. In most cases a full consultation will still be required. The above list is not exhaustive and remember if the problem is recurring then we can get to the core issue and assist you to resolve it. It’s particularly important you consider long term immune system support if you have been on antibiotics time and time again without resolution of your illness.
