Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine, known as Nature's pharmacy is a gentler and more supportive way to effectively address health complaints and enhance      vitality and the prevention of illness and disease.

We also offer compounding.

What is compounding?

"Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients."

Once upon a time, all prescriptions were meticulously compounded.
Compounding started thousands of years ago. Each tribe had a "medicine man or woman".
However in the 1500 the monks in Europe took it to next level as they became scholars in herbal medicine.

They grew herbs and sought them for their healing properties. They extracted tinctures, and made powder form of herbs to administer to the local population as medications.
The best part is that they kept meticulous records of the properties and effects of the herbs, gave them names which are still used today.

"Vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature."

This is one of the six principles as dictated by the first Doctor of natural medicine- Hippocrates

1) The Healing Power of Nature or Vis Medicatrix Naturae
Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.

2) First Do No Harm or Primum Non Nocere
Utilize the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic therapies.

3) Identify and Treat the Cause or Tolle Causam
Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

4) Treat the Whole Person or Tolle Totum
View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.

5) Prevention or Preventare
Focus on overall health, wellness, and disease prevention.

6) Physician as Teacher or Docere
Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

With the advent of mass drug manufacturing in the 1950s and ‘60s, compounding rapidly declined. The pharmacist’s role as a preparer of medications quickly changed to that of a dispenser of manufactured dosage forms, and most pharmacists no longer were trained to compound medications. However, the “one-size-fits-all” nature of many mass-produced medications meant that some patients’ needs were not being met.

Compounded medications are made based on a practitioner’s prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.
Our naturopath is very experienced in this modality.
She can custom make herbal formulation either in powder form, into a gelatine (vegan) capsule or in liquid form.

For certain clients a custom made prescription can save money, especially when there are several conditions to address at the same time, so instead of buying multiple bottles of pre prepared supplements which can be costly, a single preparation is made and the best part is that as the conditions improve the next prescription can be further adjusted as well.
Read the story below in Specialist care.
Our naturopath is a practitioner member of the best Australian herbal medicine manufacturing companies, thus having access to Australian made very best herbal preparations, to custom make prescription.


Iridology is used as an analytical tool to study the coloured part of your eye called the Iris.

 Known as the blue print of your body system, Iridology is used as a map of the body system assessing its delicate fibres and tissues, which can tell a story of the physiology and hereditary predispositions.
The Iris can show both inherent and acquired aspects of your body, giving indications of potential hereditary strengths and weakness of the body system.

This is an important tool used for helping to understand the way an individual body functions.

An iridology assessment is available at our clinic.


Ilca Andrikis has successfully treated chronic conditions such as Ross River Virus with herbal medicine.

The hospital specialist had told this client that he would be experiencing the following symptoms: excruciating pain in the joints, fever, weakness, fatigue, foggy head, for at least the next 2-3 years and there was nothing much that could be done about it.

Conventional medicine was only able to offer Voltaren and Panadol-osteo to this particular client, the only other option was Celebrex. 

All three of them have nasty side effects and especially Voltaren cannot be used for long periods of time at all. 

This client is a strong and fit man heavily involved in obstacle race, he was utterly shuttered.

However this client went from not being able to walk in agonizing pain in most of the joints, with chronic fatigue to no pain, being able to train every day, participate in marathons and no fatigue in sight.

To this day this client is still experiencing no symptoms of the virus at all.

Herbal medicine is real medicine without the nasty side effects.

With herbal medicine Ilca compounded a special prescription to target the inflammation, whilst stripping the virus out of the body, supporting the immune system, and adding another herb to increase energy levels and quash the chronic fatigue.

The prescription was adjusted several times, and this is the beauty of compounding saves time and money and offers a more effective treatment. 

Within three months all was pretty much back to normal.

Twelve months on it’s like it never happened.

So where conventional medicine failed to help this client, herbal medicine triumphed restoring full quality of life to this client.
The client's GP was amazed of the results. 

So if you suffer from a chronic condition and you are sick of taking medications that impair your quality of life, come and see us now, herbal medicine is not only REAL medicine  it's BETTER than conventional medicine.
