Total years in practice: 10
Hi, I'm sonia mcnaughton.
I’m a newcastle based naturopath, nutritionist and medical herbalist with a special interest in thyroid conditions and female hormonal issues.
I specialise in helping you have the energy you need to live the life you want.
Through my personalised health solutions – including nutritional analysis, standard and functional pathology, in clinic investigations and iridology – i work to support you in the areas of hypothyroidism, hashimoto's, hyperthyroidism, grave's disease, pms, painful periods, menopause, hormonal headaches, mood changes and food cravings.
My life was brimming over with fun, family, friends and a job i loved…
Yet i was constantly exhausted, irritable and forgetful. I was gaining weight, losing my hair, permanently sick, and injured by the easiest of exercise.
After 10 years of ever worsening symptoms i was finally diagnosed with a number of autoimmune diseases and placed on a cocktail of medications - yet i felt no better. Endless expensive appointments with the very best in orthodox medicine to the most extreme alternative therapies left me feeling hopelessly confused and hopeless.
When a very learned and kind immunologist told me to accept my health would most likely continue to deteriorate and i would need ever stronger medications i made a choice to take back control. I hit the books and went back to college to study what i could do to feel better.
More important to me than the awards i won studying the triple qualification in nutrition, naturopathy and medical herbalism was my restored energy, stable mood and lust for life from putting what i learnt into action.
My experience has left me passionate about providing simple-to-follow, scientifically valid, natural solutions to help you achieve your best possible life.
