Obstruction of the airways by excessive mucous production and oedema of respiratory mucosa.

Learn how to recognise Asthma from other respiratory diseases and First Aid treatment (What to do – how to treat) as well as supplements and Homoeopathics to reduce the severity, discomfort and occurrence of the disease.


This can be structural (eg. Scoliosis, Herniated Disc, Fracture) or functional (spasm/cramp/muscular pain). Learn how to treat whatever your pain problem using diet, movement/positioning, supplementation, or adjusting your mental focus using Hypnotherapy to reduce pain.



Hypertension/Hypotension - Causes vary:

Hypertension: (High Blood Pressure) Stress, Tension, Obesity, Lifestyle, Medication, Disease (eg Cushings, Kidney disorders)

Knowing how to recognise and treat the symptoms and the disease is paramount to recovery and enjoyment of a ‘normal lifestyle’.

DEPRESSION: Anxiety, Stress disorders, OCD

Rather than the ‘medical approach’ using Anti-Depressants and Tranquilisers, the focus is on the cause and effect on the individual. In adjunction to Herbal and Homoeopathic supplementation used to alleviate the symptoms; Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy sessions can be utilised to teach relaxation techniques and to recognise ‘Stress factors’ and how to deal with them. This includes a wide range of stresses from Anxiety to Panic Attacks.


Irritable bowel, diarrhoea, constipation, flatulence, nausea, heartburn, distention, ulceration. Be advised that normal digestive process involves no pain or discomfort. These can be signs of poor eating behaviour, imbalanced gut flora and digestive enzyme imbalance or of something more sinister ……Fatty Liver, Ulceration, Helico Bactor Pylori (ulceration) etc.



The condition may be present in one or both sex partners and may be temporary and reversible. The cause may be physical (abnormalities of the reproductive system eg Endometriosis or low sperm count), hormonal imbalance, dysfunction or anomalies in other organ systems or the result of psychological or emotional problems. It is best that both parties (potential parents) are assessed to determine causal factors. Supplementation and management will assist the process and ensure the healthiest outcome for parent and offspring. It is also an opportunity to discuss what is expected/understood about the progression of Pregnancy for a healthy Mother and Child.


Angina, Palpitations, Tachycardia etc. There may be a reason for your symptoms that can be easily treated without resorting to a lifetime of medications. The utilisation of lifestyle changes and alternative supplementation may see you correct and treat your condition.

MS, Endometriosis, Hot Flush

Understanding your condition and what to do about it give you the means and ability to take some control over what is happening to your body. Most women are unaware of what the signs and symptoms are trying to communicate about what is happening to their body. Be reassured that in the majority of cases these conditions can be managed successfully and often cured simply, quickly and without the need for invasive surgery. All options will be openly discussed with you......it is your body after all.


What is a Migraine? A recurring vascular headache characterised by a prodromal aura, unilateral onset, severe pain, photophobia, nausea. Duration may last for days. Cause: Unknown, allergic, (carbohydrates, chocolate, iodine, alcohol) bright lights, stress (physical or mental) Learn simple techniques for lessening the impact or avoiding it altogether. Causes are as varied as the individual and treatment is a reflection of this and may include Herbals, Supplements, Homoeopathics, Hypnotherapy (for stress and pain management).



What is Nutrition? Is it the same for everyone? Nutrition is the sum of the processes involved in the taking in of nutrients and in their assimilation and use for proper body functioning, maintenance and repair. The successive stages include: Ingestion, Digestion, Absorption, Assimilation and Excretion

Each person has (similar but) different needs. The very young need to have food introduced in a particular way to avoid or lessen the risks associated with food allergy and so they can grow the correct gut flora.

Those suffering illness or disease need to be treated accordingly. Medication can also have a great effect on the digestive tract and the assimilation of nutrients.

Some diets can be restrictive (eg, vegan) and care needs to be taken to ensure adequate nutrition and gut flora.

The elderly have special needs as their bodies are not as efficient as they used to be and supplementation may be necessary to ensure adequate nutritional intake.


Ideally, special needs should to be met before Pregnancy for optimum outcome (eg Folate vs Spinabifida). The best start you can give your baby, happens before he/she is born. There are certain (preventable) medical conditions (eg. Spinabifida, Cretins syndrome, Gestational Diabetes) that you should be aware of before you get pregnant and certainly during gestation (Pregnancy).

You can be assisted through your entire Pregnancy from Conception, Morning sickness, Nutrition, Stretch marks, Labour, Birthing, Lactation and Immunisation and introducing foods to your baby. Pregnancy is NOT A DISEASE, but a beautiful natural process. With today’s busy lifestyle and heavily processed foods however, it is often about what is convenient rather than what is best.


It is never recommended for you to stop prescribed medication or to self medicate. At the Polly Clinic your individual needs will be taken into consideration. All medications will be reviewed and assessed, including side effects; and we will work together to reduce your symptoms and improve your health so that you may be able to lessen or with the awareness/approval of your Dr or Medical practitioner, cease medication altogether should it be become unnecessary.

You have been prescribed medication for a reason. If we can lessen or eliminate the reason for the medication, it stands to reason we can reduce or eliminate the medication.



Eczema, Psoriasis, Ulceration, Lupus, Dermatitis, Chloasma.

The reasons for these conditions is many and varied. First we need to understand the individual with the disease and through Differential Diagnosis, attempt to find and treat the cause as well as the symptoms. The usual medical (allopathic) treatment often involves the use of steroid creams and ointments. The naturopathic approach involves treating the individual and their symptoms. For example, one person may have eczema that is red and itchy and on their face. Another person has eczema, but affects only the skin on their hands and fingers which is extra dry and splits open with stinging pains and bloods fissures that are slow to heal. Two very different disease pictures and two very different treatment protocols. Always treat the individual.


Any emotional, physical, social, economic or other factor that requires a response –emotional or physical in nature. It is the EFFECT that the stress is creating in your body, your mind, and your relationships and your ability to deal with or alter the way you deal with/perceive the stress. It’s about DEALING with what is happening. Why when something happens will one person get Angry, another Depressed, another Anxious? Why do they all have different stress responses?

Learning to change your perception or stress techniques can change your life. This is done through Hypnosis and Psychoanalysis, with the aid of Homoeopathics to treat the symptom picture while techniques are practiced and adjustments are made. If Stress is affecting your digestive system (nausea, indigestion, poor appetite, vomiting, abdominal pain) or causing muscular aches and pains, then these Physical forms of stress also need to be addressed.

WEIGHT: Obesity, Weightloss, Anorexia

Sometimes weight loss/gain is as simple as energy (calories/kilojoules) in verses energy (calories/kilojoules) out. That if the amount of food energy you consume (eat) is greater than your output (exercise) the remainder of the energy will be stored. Excess energy is conveniently stored by the body as FAT. By adjusting your diet and lifestyle…..miracles can happen.

Sometimes, it’s not that simple. There may be a metabolic reason for weight gain/loss eg Hyperthyroidism [weight loss]or Hypothyroidism [weight gain], or you may suffer Syndrome X (Slow Fat Metabolism). You may have a digestive disorder; Crohns, diarrhoea, Colitis, or disease which is preventing you from utilising nutrients (Cachexia).

Perhaps it is a psychological issue. Over eating to fill an emotional void or to avoid relationships. Self loathing. Undereating (Anorexia) due to body dysmorphia (the way you view yourself) food intolerances or perfectionism/control issues.

Whatever the issue, whatever the reason, help is available. After assessment, we will be proceed on a plan expressly tailored to your needs and requirements.
