CHILDHOOD & ADULT VACCINATION
Mental Health is more than just mental illness. Poor mental health can prevent you from coping with the stresses of daily life, working productively and enjoying life to its fullest.
Do you feel:
- Anxious or worried
- Depressed or unhappy
- Quiet or withdrawn
- Guilty or worthless
Have you noticed changes in your behaviour or feelings, weight or appetite? Do you have problems sleeping? You could be suffering from poor mental health. Book an appointment today with one of our GP’s to discuss this. You may be eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan Referral which entitles you to Medicare rebatable services from a Psychologist. For more information there is an Access to Mental Health Care – Patient Information Sheet available to read and print.

Chronic Disease Management
A chronic disease is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.
Ante-Natal & Maternity Shared Care
We can help organise health screening for you and your baby as well as organise your maternal care at either a public hospital or a private obstetrician.
Naturopathic & Functional Medicine
We offer integrative and functional medicine at our Beachmere Clinic. This service was born out of a desire to offer a truly integrative approach in managing common chronic diseases like gut dysbiosis, autoimmunity, insulin resistance (diabetes and weight loss) and cardio-metabolic disease.
Depending on the complexity of the health issues, we recommend a longer initial appointment lasting between 20-40 minutes. For especially complex cases we may require a longer time-frame.
In the integrative clinic, we utilise all conventional medical methods such as history taking, physical examination and conventional blood tests, imaging and specialist reviews. Depending on the health issues being investigated, we also use some additional functional diagnostic modalities through private laboratories. While the latter forms of testing are not commonly requested by medical practitioners in Australia, we consider them useful additional tools to gain further insight into the cause of your medical illness.
The Integrative Clinic is not bulk-billed. Please enquire with our reception staff for fees. Partial Medicare rebates are available with a valid.
We use your own blood to heal you.
