IMMUNE HEALTH
Reoccurring inflammation in the body, ongoing colds and flus, fungal infections, cancer, frequent herpes outbreaks, shingles and UTI’s, are all signs of a weak immune system.

The skin is often the body’s first line of defence and common skin aliments such as eczema, psoriasis and acne are things that tell us that something else is happening within the body that requires our attention. The immune system is our defence against internal and external pathogens and there are clinically proven methods to strengthen it.

Autoimmune conditions are when the body develops an abnormal immune response and starts to attack healthy cells. They can develop when we least expect it and do so usually at a time when the body is under additional stress. These diseases often have multiple triggers including genetics, environment and lifestyle. It’s important to bear in mind those who have a predisposition to these diseases via their genetics still have the opportunity to experience relief from symptoms. Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease, celiac and lupus can all go into remission with the correct environment and treatment. Lupus (SLE) is a condition, principal naturopath Cody Kennedy, has a particular interest in. If you would like to know more about Cody’s ongoing work with Lupus please contact us.

As a naturopath Cody’s initial aim is to address the symptoms you are experiencing and provide some relief from them. Ongoing treatment is aimed at addressing underlying causes of disease in order to give sustained relief. A healthy and well functioning immune system is critical. Treating the underlying cause of the disease will help bring the body back into harmony and provide you with the quality of life you deserve.

LYME AND LYME-LIKE ILLNESSES
Lyme disease is an infectious illness caused by the bacterium known as Borrelia, which creates a condition more correctly known as Borreliosis or Lyme Borreliosis.

The bacteria, a spirochete, is transmitted when an individual is bitten by a vector usually a tick.  Lyme disease can impact many bodily systems and organs and can, in some cases, mimic other illnesses ie lupus.

People with Lyme disease are frequently diagnosed with other co-infections and illnesses caused by vector-borne bacteria and parasites such as Babesia, Bartonella, Rickettsia, Mycoplasma and Ehrlichia. We thank the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation for their list of symptoms.

The name ‘Lyme disease’ was coined in the United States of America when an outbreak of juvenile arthritis occurred in the town of Lyme, Connecticut, and the outbreak was subsequently found to be caused by the Borrelia bacteria.

The diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and its associated illnesses and co-infections can be very complex and few Australian doctors are trained in managing this condition.

NATURAL FERTILITY
CK Health has one of the most passionate and compassionate Newcastle Naturopaths to support you when trying to conceive.

Focusing on the care of couples and singles who are trying to have a baby naturally, or through IVF, Cheree Sheldon can provide you with the support, inspiration, and expertise you need to fall pregnant.

Using natural medicine and proven strategies for fertility problems, whether it is a complex, recurrent, or unexplained problem, Cheree is there to help.

Natural fertility focuses on what you can do prior to trying to conceive that will optimise your chances of success. It is pre-conception care to the max!

There are so many things that impact fertility and working with Cheree helps you to uncover what is impacting yours and most importantly, how to improve it.

Low grade niggling health complaints, stress, hormones, weight and environmental exposure can add up to become a larger burden than your body can cope with to support a healthy pregnancy.

One of the massive bonuses of natural fertility care is the reduced risk of lifelong health issues for your unborn child, why wouldn’t you do it?!!

To get you to your goal, Cheree assesses both partners health history, looking in depth at any possibilities that can be given some extra support. She may recommend further testing to look at hormone function or nutritional deficiency for example.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH

Children go through lots of different stages of growth and development.

She will take you through what steps you can take to boost your child’s immunity, improve digestion and set them up to be calmer, happier and healthier.

By educating both parents and children along the journey, Cheree helps you to understand the reason behind the changes and helps motivate you to create a significant difference. You are not alone in supporting your child’s health.
