Are you tired of planning your life around your hormonal and digestive health issues?
Are you stuck on the perimenopausal hormonal rollercoaster and don't know how to get off?
Are you fed up with not being taken seriously when discussing your ‘female issues’ or ‘digestive problems’ with other health professionals?
Are you sick of test results coming back as ‘normal’ but you're still unwell?
Do you feel exhausted ? Are your periods are out of whack? Is your hair falling out? Do you sleep well or are you having hot flushes and night sweats? Do you have weight around your middle and can't shift it? Or are you putting on weight and can't seem to lose it again? These are all signs of hormonal imbalances.
Is your tummy sore and/or bloated after eating? Do you suffer from acne or other skin conditions? Do you have trouble pooping? Or are you pooping too much? Have you noticed certain foods upset your tummy? These are all signs of digestive issues.
Its frustrating, but it doesn't have to be this way as I can show you how to have hormonal and digestive freedom throughout this transition into menopause and beyond!
My passion lies in women’s wellness, especially the perimenopausal woman as this is where I am at right now in my own life journey.
I love working with women from all cultural backgrounds and diversities to achieve a healthy perimenopause and transition into menopause. This transition can take up to 10 years and affects us all in many different ways. Some women breeze through this transition whilst others feel like they have all the symptoms!
Balancing your hormones and supporting your adrenal and thyroid function along with working on your digestive health is important for each one of us. I have also noticed that IBS and SIBO can also flare up again during this time (even if you have been symptom free for years.)
As a Naturopath I work with a holistic health care method using an individual approach which includes evidence based natural medicine and traditional philosophies.
I will advise on dietary and lifestyle changes that suit you and your culture along with using herbal formulas (these can be non alcohol based), nutritional medicines and flower essences specific to your needs.
Hi, I'm Katrina
I feel your digestive pain and frustration as I’ve been there as well. I studied to become a Naturopath as I was so over my digestive issues and not feeling quiet right. I have finally got on top of them! SIBO had been my underlying cause which had gone undiagnosed and incorrectly treated over the years. I did have relief from my symptoms and got on with my daily life but underneath I still felt unwell.
My SIBO had flared back up again last year and I was greatful that I was able to take the time during lockdown to treat myself. I am now SIBO free. Having both perimenopausal symptoms and digestive health issues (SIBO or IBS) is what I call a double whammy! I knew that I wasn't alone with these symptoms and neither are you. All of these are able to be treated naturally and successfully.
Perimenopause begins in our early 40s and can last for up to ten years before we begin our menopause journey. I am now mid-way through my perimenopausal journey - (I've suffered from most of the known hormonal issues) and now feel well again.
Most of my female clients have begun their perimenopausal journey. Perimenopause is a hormonal rollercoaster which is often referred to as our second puberty.
Some women are just beginning to notice changes (their periods are heavier and some have lots of blood clots), some are experiencing brain fog, mood swings and anxiety. Their IBS/SIBO has flared back up again. You may also notice your thyroid is also playing up - unexplained weight gain, tiredness or just
Are you mid-way through your perimenopause or have you transitioned into menopause? Menopause is when you haven't had a period for a minimum of twelve months. Are you still experiencing those dreaded hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia and other related issues?
A lot of women also experience vaginal health issues, such as dryness, bacterial vaginitis (BV), Candida (thrush), vaginitis, painful intercourse, low libido, recurrent urninary tract infections and many other conditions that can be related to the hormonal changes or pathogens.
Are you seeking the help of a qualified Naturopath that know's exactly what you are going through?
What my clients say
I saw Katrina as my periods were heavy and painful and I was over having to put up with this each month!
I noticed a difference within the next month as my periods were less heavy and the pain had reduced a lot.
The following month I had even more noticeable improvements. After 6 months of getting my periods back into its new cycle I feel so much better!
I suffered from IBS (diarrhoea) for many years. I thought that going to the toilet after meals and up to 5 times a day was going to be my normal way of living.
Katrina recommended that I should be tested for SIBO and it came back positive to hydrogen gas. I was also treated for parasites as had travelled overseas prior to having my IBS symptoms. I have completed my SIBO treatment and I’m now enjoying my life again
I’ve tried so many diets over the years and was constantly yo-yoing with my weight and digestive symptoms. I was recommended by a friend to see Katrina and I tried her Repair, Re-balance and Restore Program and found that this made such a huge difference to my symptoms.
I’ve lost weight and have maintained this along with my digestive issues have gone away!” Now I’m focusing on maintaining my weight loss with Katrina’s help.
I am so happy with what you have done for my wife, she is a new woman! I wish we had found you years ago as she is now able to have her life back as she has pain free periods and her perimenopausal symptoms have gone.
I am more than happy to have you work with me to reduce my stress levels, sleep through the night and I need more energy as I'm about to start a new job (which is a high pressure managerial position).
