Delivering natural health

Caroline Robinson Naturopath in Ponsonby

As an accredited Naturopath and former registered nurse I bring a wealth of experience to help you address your health concerns allowing you to feel great and achieve optimal health and vitality. I work with women, men & children and use a combination of good nutrition, proven natural health medicines and supplements, and lifestyle solutions.

Whether you need help with nutrition, weight, stress, energy levels, hormone imbalance, or you have digestive issues such as IBS or food intolerances, making an appointment is a step in the right direction.

I am passionate about sport and fitness and still play hockey at a senior competitive level.  I love spending time with my 3 children and husband and truly believe in balance when it comes to your health – which for me includes the odd glass of wine!

Naturopathy provides well balanced natural health care that is designed to be realistic and that fits in with your lifestyle. So while some lifestyle changes may be required, these will be done in steps that are manageable and achievable for you as an individual.

My clients describe me as a great listener who makes things simple to understand and put into practice.  I’m empathetic and easy to talk to which means you can tell me just about anything! I look forward to meeting you.

Caroline’s Naturopathy Practice

Naturopathy is a passion of mine and over the years I’ve worked with people on all sorts of health concerns and challenges.  Sometimes its’ obvious what the issue(s) is but other times it’s a mystery and the only thing I have to go on are the words ‘somethings just not right’, ‘I’m exhausted all the time’ and ‘I have this ongoing issue but no real reason for it’.  That’s what I love about my job the opportunity to help people who are often ready to give up, frustrated and resigned to living this way. 

Key areas of focus for me are:

  • Digestive issues, food intolerances, bloating, IBS, indigestion, constipation
  • Stress, fatigue, low mood, low energy and adrenal fatigue
  • Women’s health, hormonal issues, PMS, PCOS, Endometriosis, painful periods
  • Thyroid health
  • Detoxification – digestive and liver

Protocol expertise:

  • Weight Loss and Metabolic Balance: Discover a science-backed, personalised approach to achieving your weight loss goals and improving your overall health with Metabolic Balance. Read more about working with me on weight management here.
  • Gut Health and the G.E.M.M. Protocol: Address the root causes of allergies, infections, fatigue, and more with the innovative G.E.M.M Protocol focused on restoring optimal gut health.

Whilst these are the most common concerns I see, I also work with a raft of other health challenges including insomnia, skin health (acne, psoriasis, eczema & dermatitis), men’s health, cardiovascular health (high blood pressure & cholesterol), allergies and immune health. Whatever your concern, don’t continue to live with it. Book a consultation with me now to discuss your goals and start your journey toward better health and a better life.

Supplements & Herbs 

A key part of naturopathy is the use of supplements and herbs to support and maintain your health and overall wellbeing. I prescribe Practitioner-only products as they are scientifically researched, of high quality and are clinically effective. I use a range of suppliers so I can access the most effective products for your particular needs. Brands include Metagenics, Integra Nutritionals (G.E.M.M.), Thorne, Mediherb, Bio-practica, Douglas, BioMedica.

Testing 

Chronic and mysterious health issues often need further investigation.  I offer a wide range of Naturopathic functional testing which can be invaluable in discovering underlying health issues. These can provide me with a more in-depth diagnosis helping me to provide the best possible natural health plans. I offer the following functional tests and a range of other tests if required.

  • DUTCH Complete Hormone Test
  • Complete Microbiome Gut Mapping Test
  • Organic Acids Test (OATS)
  • Allergy/Food intolerance testing
  • Comprehensive thyroid functional assessment
  • Stool and blood testing (through Labtests)
