Tara graduated from Perth Academy of Natural Therapies in 1996, and has over 20 years experience in the Natural health industry.
In 1998 Tara opened the Naturaliste Healing Centre in Dunsborough, a multi- disciplinary clinic including Naturopathy, Accupuncture, Chiropractor, massage and Physiotherapy. This was a highly successful clinic which she sold after 5 years to begin a family.
Tara currently works from her home in Yallingup, Naturopathic Care, a beautiful rural setting that offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere for patients to come and explore their health journey.
Naturopathic Care is focused on evidence-based, patient-centered healing, using a wide range of testing techniques from hormone or urine analysis, to Iridology and Live Blood Analysis, to tongue and nail signs, and Hair mineral analysis for mineral levels in the body and hair testing for food intolerances, to investigate as to why the body is out of balance. I work with Integrated Gp’s in my area to get you the best possible pathology testing. We work together as a team often integrating other modalities to support your health journey.
I employ individualized treatment protocols focusing on dietary changes, lifestyle tweaks, herbal medicines and nutritional supplements based on correcting your deficiencies and supporting biochemical pathways
My passion as a Naturopath is about educating people about how to eat well and live well, for them to take control of their own health by making the changes of eating better and eliminating lifestyle practices that are not supporting this process.
My commitment to you as a patient is 100% and when you commit 100% also, the results are phenomenal. I love to work with people who are ready to make the changes to their health to become a vibrant, healthy you.
As well as everyday health concerns that people face, Tara is particularly interested in digestive health and detoxification. A healthy body starts at the center of the body which is the digestive system and if this is functionally properly, then good health follows. Liver and gut health go hand in hand and it’s amazing how clearing out the liver can give a person so much energy and vitality.
I also work with many Thyroid patients, from hypo, hyperthyroidism, to Hashimotos and Graves disease. Thyroid problems are increasing at an alarming rate and most of my clientele come from a place of being under diagnosed or diagnosed but are still experiencing severe thyroid symptoms. I work holistically with thyroid patients to bring balance to their thyroid and reversing their disease process.
