Naturopath, Herbalist, Nutritionist
Dr Jason Hawrelak's Gut and Microbiome Team - Associate

Naomi is a member of Dr Jason Hawrelak's Gut and Microbiome Clinic and enjoys engaging closely with her colleagues, as well as receiving mentoring from Dr Hawrelak and Dawn Whitten. Naomi delights in unravelling chronic and acute conditions alike, and facilitating her clients to achieve improvement in their symptoms, with a view to resolution or remission where practical.   

 

The health of the microbiomes of the gut and vagina have been the focus of her career evolution, and nothing delights her more than poring over and analysing relevant test results, explaining how the results fit the clinical picture of the individual in front of her, and crafting a methodical approach to bring about relief from dis-ease.

Naomi has helped a wide range of clients, ranging from infants to geriatrics to address conditions including; IBS, chronic constipation, chronic diarrhoea, SIBO, coeliac disease, diverticulosis, chronic skin disorders, fatigue, thyroid disorders, stress, disordered sleep, couple infertility, gynaecological disorders, testicular health, menstrual cycle health, endometriosis, PCOS, UTIs, bacterial vaginosis, and vaginal health.

 

Naomi is a prolific reader and has to dole out books to herself in a methodical and controlled manner so that she doesn't get lost in the literary world, she enjoys exercise of all persuasions and attempts to practice some kind of movement daily; she finds yoga to be an invaluable tool for pain management and strives, and frequently fails(!), to practice it with a mindful intention. In a parallel universe, if obligations were not a thing, you would find Naomi hiking in France or Spain, meandering along the Camino del Santiago, slaughtering the language/s and taking plant-medicine identification courses with her partner and children.
