Who is Naturopath Mikaela Duffy?
I’m a fully qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist and Bodyworker – assisting clients throughout the Brisbane area and now with appointments online. I have a passion for energetic bodywork through the mediums of herbs, remedies, foods, and quantum healing modalities.
I love supporting physical and emotional health with this variety of approaches – Biofeedback Technology, Reiki, BodyTalk and Herbal Body Treatments.
I specialise in health, fertility, and post-partum care and provide home visits for new mums to support their physical and emotional wellbeing during their special time. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
What is Naturopathy?
The principle behind Naturopathy is to look at a person from a holistic perspective, in other words, as an entirety. Each human is a complex being, consisting of a physical, emotional, and spiritual body; the combination of these three elements forms the reality of our health state, and the absence of good health and wellness, is termed as ‘dis-ease’.
Naturopathy focuses on finding the cause of disease, rather than only treating the symptoms and addresses Nutrition as well as using additional tools such as Herbal Medicine and Flower Essences.
How I approach Naturopathy
As a Naturopath, I create treatments that focus on the key aspects of a person’s health taking into consideration food, lifestyle, energetic balancing, personal interests and needs. If required, I bring BodyTalk, BioFeedback Technology and Reiki and even Medical Testing into a session.
I am also aware that my industry has gained a reputation for heavy selling and bags full of products, however, when it comes to supplementation guidance, I have a strong philosophy of ‘less is more’.
By utilising the various tools of my practice, my focus is on finding the root cause to give advice that is individual, practical, and achievable.
What is Nutrition?
Optimum health and digestion relies on a number of factors such as a balanced diet, sufficient water intake and stress management. Our bodies can easily become depleted in essential nutrients through poor dietary choices, regular junk foods, alcohol, smoking and stress. The modern diet and lifestyle is aimed at convenience rather than disease prevention.
Additives for prolonged shelf life affect digestion and elimination processes, and promote toxic build-up leading to skin conditions, hormone imbalance, sleep quality and mood changes. This means that our bodies respond not only to what we eat, but when and how we prepare and eat it.
When we become aware of these principles and apply them to our daily routines, we can begin to live our lives deliberately, harmoniously and beneficially.
What is BodyTalk?
BodyTalk is a healthcare system designed by your body - to address the emotions, physical or environment - THE WHOLE STORY, and is suitable for people, animals and plants.
As a BodyTalk Practitioner, I rely on the guidance of the body’s natural wisdom to find the proper order in which they are to be restored. Rather than using invasive techniques, the session is focused on stimulating your body’s natural healing response to establish better communication with the body.
