Alison Mitchell, Naturopathic Medicine
Total years in practice: 11
Alison Mitchell I graduated from University of Western Sydney in 2007 after 4 years full time study. I was privileged to learn from some of the best naturopaths in NSW and to have the basis of my education from a scientific background. This allows me to give my patients a high standard of treatment that is based on quality research and diagnostic testing. I love naturopathy because I am determined to get to the bottom of the cause of illness, and not just put a band-aid over the symptoms and send you on your way. It’s like a puzzle where I get to put all the pieces together, do the research and nut out what is really going on for you. My approach to treatment is to keep it as simple as possible, to always work with your goals. I also like to incorporate nutritional education into my appointments, with the aim to empower you to take control of your health and make lasting changes. I’m a bit of a foodie. I love cooking and eating fresh, delicious, nutritious, unprocessed food, and discovering new foods and recipes. I’m also an advocate of the 80/20 rule – 80% for your body and 20% for your soul. I love the philosophies of naturopathic nutrition because it’s not just about calorie counting, it’s looking at the healing properties of foods (food as medicine) and understanding how to achieve balance with food. I love sharing my nutrition knowledge and educating others about the best choices for optimal health and well-being. I am passionate about helping people reclaim their health and vitality by blending traditional healing methods with the latest research. I treat all ages, males and females and a wide variety of conditions, however I have an interest in women’s health, digestive, urinary, and skin conditions. I am thorough and caring in my approach, and believe in an individualized approach to treatment and diet.
