My name is Larissa and I am a naturopath in Sydney. I am a degree qualified and registered naturopath, clinical nutritionist and herbalist. I am also a very proud mumma and wife, adventure seeker and health nut.
I was introduced to naturopathy, at a very young age by my incredible mother. My upbringing was extremely nourished by home cooked meals, nutritional and herbal supplements, lots of outdoor activities and exercise.
This lit the fire for a burning passion for all things health related. My health allows me to live a life filled with so much love and joy.
For me health is freedom. Optimal health allows me to wake up and squeeze the most into my day.
I am not perfect. My journey with health has met its struggles and challenges.
Herbal medicine utilises the powerful medicinal constituents of plants to support the body’s innate healing ability. Herbal medicine is prescribed in the form of liquid tincture, tablet or dried herb taken as herbal tea.
Dietary change is fundamental to achieving optimal health because all of the structures and functions of the body are built on nutrients. There is nothing more satisfying than using food as medicine to nourish the body to provide strength and resilience.
Naturopathy is a holistic form of medicine built on the premise that health should radiate from all areas of life including social, physical, emotional and psychological.
Additional nutritional supplementation may be required in cases of increased nutritional requirements, where dietary interventions alone are not sufficient to achieve a therapeutic outcome.
