Aside from offering a range of natural care health services, our clinic provides specialist health care in several key areas.
Autoimmune conditions are becoming alarmingly common in Australia and most western countries. Once a person is diagnosed with an autoimmune disease they are at an increased risk of developing a further autoimmune condition. Research has convincingly confirmed that pathogens, stress, chronic inflammation of the gut, genetics, allergies and food intolerances can all play a role in the development of autoimmune disease. Experienced naturopaths at Darling Health will ensure that potential causative factors are addressed and therapies that will reduce inflammation and aim to quieten the hypersensitive immune responses will be employed.
We all want to raise healthy, happy and intelligent children – but sometimes, despite our best efforts, our kids get sick. It’s not surprising; today’s typical child is exposed to a myriad of unnatural environmental and dietary toxins. At Darling Health, we treat a wide range of children’s health problems including food allergies and intolerances, ear and sinus infections, eczema and rashes, asthma, weaning and infant nutrition, ADHD and behavioural disorders, autism and Asperger’s syndrome, poor immunity, colds and flu, OCD and other neurological disorders. Acute 30-minute kids consults are now available with Claire Luckman.
Late nights and poor lifestyle choices such as junk food, smoking, alcohol and drugs can leave you feeling sluggish, lethargic and not firing on all cylinders. Weight gain, recurrent headaches, muscle pain, short-term memory loss or mental health issues can be a sign of toxicity in the body, as can infertility and recurrent infections.
Some couples fall pregnant easily, but for others, it can be an ongoing struggle that lasts months or years. At Darling Health, we specialise in preconception health care which educates both parents in ways to improve their health before deciding to conceive, which can have a profound effect on the health of the baby, as well as reducing miscarriage risk and improving pregnancy outcomes.
You’re pregnant! It’s an exciting time, but can also be a daunting one as you wonder how to provide your unborn baby with the best possible start in life. Should you change your diet? Start taking supplements? How can you keep your stress levels low? We find many couples benefit from extra support and guidance at this time.
If you suffer from mental health issues such as stress, depression or anxiety, you’re definitely not alone. Mental health conditions are escalating in our society, with around 10 percent of Australians now suffering from depression. Studies show that eating disorders, insomnia, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease are also on the rise. Naturopath Carmen Cooper has extensive experience in aligning all body systems to treat anxiety, depression, mood disorders, insomnia, fatigue, postnatal depletion and adrenal fatigue.
At Darling Health, we specialise in treating women throughout their reproductive years – from puberty through to menopause. Hormonal imbalance and gynaecological health issues usually result from a combination of inherited and genetic patterns, environmental toxins and nutritional imbalance.
