Naturopathic Consultations available in our Southport clinic
Face Fit Naturopathy Services. With nutritional therapy and herbal medicine, we aim to support the body’s own healing abilities and empower people to make impactful lifestyle changes necessary for optimal health and wellbeing.
Naturopathy is based on the healing power of nature. Our Face Fit Naturopath strives to find the cause of your concerns and enhance your health and wellness from the inside by working closely with you to understand your body and mind.
Your first appointment with our naturopath will go for around an hour. During this time, we will take a thorough medical history, and ask about your diet and lifestyle, your current health, any medication/supplements you are taking and review relevant body systems such as the digestive system.
We ask lots of questions in your first consultation to gather detailed information about your general health and symptoms to investigate what could be causing/contributing to your health complaint. Its our time to get to know you as an individual and discuss with you what your health and wellbeing goals are so that we can work together to achieve these goals.
At the end of your first appointment, we may recommend and organise further testing for you. Naturopathy is evidence based and we like to ‘test not guess’ to help improve treatment effectiveness and accuracy. This may include referrals to your doctor for further assessment/pathology testing and/or functional testing such as gut microbiome testing depending on what you need.
A follow up appointment is made around 2-4 weeks after your initial appointment to give you time to complete your testing.
– 1 hr
Your first follow-up is where we begin your treatment! Results from your testing along with information gathered in your initial appointment are reviewed and a treatment plan is set for you. Your treatment plan will include Naturopathic assessment, treatment goals, dietary recommendations, lifestyle recommendations and your recommended prescriptions. Specific herbal medicines and nutritional supplements will be recommended to support and treat your health complaints.
After your first follow-up, it is important to continue to review and track your progress. Your treatment plan or individualised herbal mix may need to be updated/tweaked as you start responding to your new dietary and lifestyle recommendations
Naturopathy / Naturopathic Consultation FAQs
When seeing a Naturopath, you can expect to have someone there to educate and support you to make dietary and lifestyle adjustments that will help you achieve your health and wellbeing goals. It can take time and is a process to make changes to your dietary and lifestyle habits. Your naturopath is here to guide and educate you on how you can make these changes and what will be sustainable for you long term.
Skin complaints can take time to heal, especially if they are chronic skin complaints. We advise patients that they should notice improvements in their skin by 3 months – however each person is different, and this also depends on completion of your treatment plan too. As skin complaints can also be caused from hormonal imbalances and digestive dysfunction, these factors can also take some time to treat and assess.
With the help of our experienced Dermal Therapists and your on-going commitment, you will know you are on the right path to healthier skin and a more confident you.
If you are finding it difficult to complete your treatment plan, this is the best time to see your Naturopath so that we can support you even more by finding other ways to make it easier for you and help remove the barriers to change. We are here to support you and help you stay on track!
Naturopaths can help treat acute and chronic health complaints, they can also work on optimising your inner health, but did you know they can optimise your skin health too? Preventing skin issues before they even start!

What our clients say about our Naturopath, Evie.
“Evie was so understanding with our challenges with our daughter with fussy eating and mood swings and after testing, provided a comprehensive treatment plan that explained so much information and lots of ideas to try and work with our daughter to help her. Evie has a really lovely nature and I felt comfortable explaining everything to her to get the best outcome.” – Clancy
“I have only had one consult so far with Evie but left the appointment feeling great. It was really in-depth which I appreciated and she straight away got the ball rolling to have tests done so that we can start treatment as fast as possible. She was super lovely and made the whole process very easy and comfortable.” – Mia
“I was struggling with chronic migraines, dizziness and anxiety when I first started seeing Evie. Within a year my migraines are almost obsolete, I no longer experience dizziness and my anxiety is under control. I often would come in with other issues which she has always found solutions for. She has also given me amazing referrals for other treatments and is always considerate of any financial limitations. She is incredibly caring and passionate about her work and I couldn’t recommend her more highly! Thank you so much again for everything you’ve done.” – Emily
“My skin is starting to clear up massively just after one week, it’s just scarring leftover. I really hope it’ll stay this way – but needed to tell you!” – Pauline
“ My experience with Evie so far has been great, I started seeing Evie as I’ve been having breakouts on my face and thought she would be able to help me clear my skin! It’s only been a couple of weeks since our last appointment but I’ve noticed such a difference already with how I’ve been feeling with my gut and seeing my skin clear up. I’m really looking forward to my next appointment with Evie to see the change in my skin after 5 weeks, I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thankyou Evie! “ – Chelsea
