Want to know more? Watch my short videos that cover the process you’ll go through and explain what naturopathy is about.

So what is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a health care system that practises holistic medicine.

It includes the use of herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle advice and supplements to work with imbalances.

We can also use various forms of testing to identify issues.

Naturopathy recognises that everyone is individual and we look at all the systems of the body when looking for the underlying causes of disease.

5 key treatment tools I use

5 key treatment tools I use

Balance

It is surprising how important the brain, stress and mental health can impact the whole body.

So much is run by the chemical messages from the brain.  I can help you identify what needs to be rebalanced.

Science

There is no way any real diagnosis of your health can be made without an in-depth knowledge of your body's systems.

I embrace  science,
including DNA profiling, like any diagnostic tool, using it in combination with natural healing to get you well.

Nutrition

You can’t get around it – nutrition is very much connected to our well-being.  Also one diet does not fit all and what is healthy for one person can have a negative effect on someone else.

Sometimes even small changes can have a big effect, especially around allergens..

Lifestyle

Lifestyle factors may not be immediately apparent, yet can cause long term health issues. Sometimes it’s just not being health-focussed, other factors can’t be immediately removed, like pressures at work.

We can support your mind and body in this situation and still work toward better health and wellbeing.

Herbs and Supplements

I love working with herbs as it is working with what nature gave us to keep us well.  Herbal remedies can have quite profound effects when they are used in the correct situations and quantities and generally well tolerated.

Supplements are useful for correction nutritional deficiencies and lead us back to optimal health.

Genetic Profiling for Personalised Health

Personalised genetic profiling offers an insight in to how your body responds to diet, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle at a cellular level. Scientists have known for some time that, as well as environmental and lifestyle influences, overall health and wellbeing is also determined at a cellular level.
The test itself is easily self-taken via a simple cheek swab. The results take about two weeks to return then I will go through the findings in detail with you. We'll discuss how you can best take advantage of this wonderful insight into the real you.

Gene Expression

Though we are born with our DNA already encoded into every cell in our body, we can make choices that affect how our body responds to its external environment.

The DNA contained in our cells send ‘messages’, known as ‘gene expression’, that tells the body how to respond.

The important thing to note is that gene expressions are modifiable, which means our genes are not our destiny, and DNA damage can be repaired. Through the right profile interpretation and intervention planning, we can make the right nutritional, exercise and lifestyle choices for long-term health and wellbeing.
Your Report

The test I recommend is provided by the Fitgenes laboratory in Australia via Nutrisearch here in New Zealand. You will receive a comprehensive genetic profile report that provide a lot of information around the impact of gene expression and guidance around choosing better nutritional choices that match your genes.

This is a very targeted and personalised approach to healthcare. Your report is totally unique to you.

This technology provides a fabulous guide to help establish a plan to increase your health, especially as we plan for your short, medium and long-term fitness and wellbeing.

Common conditions I can help with

wheat-field-image
Allergy or Intolerance - what's the difference?
An allergy is where the immune system generates an antibody to a substance.  Intolerances occur when the digestive system is unable to process food.
 gluten-image
Food intolerances - ignore them at your peril.
An allergy is where the immune system generates an antibody to a substance.  Intolerances occur when the digestive system is unable to process food.
Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This means that there is inflammation deep into the tissues of the digestive tract.
Insomnia and Stress - you can recover
Lack of sleep in the short term it can make you feel tired, grumpy, short tempered and unable to think straight. However, if you constantly don't get enough sleep it can lower your immune system and can even make you gain weight.
There are many causes of sleep disturbances and there will be a time in most people’s lives when they have problems sleeping.  You may have trouble getting to sleep, maintaining sleep or both.
When looking at people’s sleep issues there are three main areas that I look at, so these are the ones that are covered in this article.
If sleep is and issue for you then have a look at this article I wrote for Clinicians.
Osteoarthritis
As we age the chances of developing oesteoartritis increases. This type of athritis caused by wear and tear can impact our mobility and our enjoyment in life. Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints, arthritis symptoms include pain, joint inflammation and swelling. Are there special foods that will help relieve your arthritis symptoms?
So what is going on when we get those aches and pains; usually affecting the major joints such as the hips, knees, lower back, neck and also the hands?  Well osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage wears down and the joint becomes damaged. Cartilage is a connective tissue found in the joint, providing free movement avoiding friction and support to the joint.
Have a look at this article that I wrote for Clinicians that explains: What osteoarthritis is, what are the symptoms, lifestyle changes and supplements that can help support this condition.
Urinary Tract Infections
The urinary tract is made up of several parts, all of which can become infected. Infections in the bladder is most common and this condition is known as cystitis.
There is also urethritis, which is infection of the ureters or the tubes connecting the bladder to the kidneys. 
More serious is when infections move up into the kidneys, which we do not want to damage.
Approximately 85% of Urinary tract infections (UTI’s) are caused by the bacteria e coli.
Infections are generally more common in women for biological reasons as the opening to the urinary tract is in close proximity to the vagina and anus.
Cross contamination of bacteria can occur from both these areas. It is possible for men to get UTI’s but it is less common.

Supplements and Herbal Dispensory

One of the most powerful  treatments in my naturopathic ‘armoury’ are the natural herbs, essences and supplements that have been used successfully for many years. 

While not the only solution, a combination of herbal essences and the right supplements can provide support and relief while we work to re-balance your body’s systems.

Order repeats online

Are you an existing client with a prescription? If you run out there’s no need to come and see me to continue treatment. Just click the link, fill in the details and I’ll organise your prescription to be delivered after internet payment is approved.

Prescription Repeat Order

Hi Jane. Could I please have a repeat of the treatment prescription you supplied me.

Thank you!

I will be in touch shortly to confirm the order and provide costs and payment details. The prescription will be dispatched approximately two days after your payment is received.

I recently returned to NZ after a 4 year OE. I was feeling very tired and lethargic and went to see Jane. She recommended a number of changes to my diet, supplementary vitamins and a herbal tonic.

I very quickly found my motivation levels increase and was enjoying the outdoor lifestyle that I had so been missing overseas.

Sandra
Freemans Bay

I went to visit Jane when my 15 month old had a persistent cough that had last 2 months.  Jane prescribed an excellent mixture that worked well within a couple of days.

I use the cough mixture when I see a cold coming along and it works a treat. My boy has been well most of this winter and I call Jane's Miracle Juice.

Ger
Waitakere

Having had Crohn's disease for over 20 years, I was looking for a way to keep the disease in check.

I found that, through my consultations with Jane, I experienced a dramatic improvement after only a few months. Through diet and naturopathic remedies, my disease has been in remission for over a year.

Simon (pseudonym)
Corporate Executive

I would highly recommend Jane Cronin. She explained in a really easy to understand way what was happening with my body. She was really empathetic, listened and explained things in such an accessible and sensible way, and then followed up with the plan and further info. The information, tools and health benefits she has given me...have been a real life-saver

Metagenics Detox Programme

3-Stage Detox over 6 Weeks Fully Supervised

Staying Healthy in a Toxic World

In our modern world, environmental toxins are very common but can also be generated internally by 'bad' bacteria, yeasts and parasites in your digestive system affecting your health and vitality.

Metagenics' detoxification program can be one of the most effective strategies for rapidly improving the state of your health. Its strength and efficacy requires Natural Health Practitioner Supervision.

Health Questionnaires

Follow the links below and you’ll find some online health questionnaires for you to use. These can be a great guide to gauging your current health and wellbeing so we can measure the changes you experience as your health improves.

I strongly suggest you complete the general Health, History and Wellbeing questionnaire before your first visit – this will allow me to get a picture of your needs so we can spend our time more productively at your first visit. 
Health/History Wellbeing Questionnaire

This is the questionnaire I ask all my clients to fill out before the first visit. I'm only as good as the information I work with, so take your time and make it as complete as possible.

Fill in your Health/History Questionnaire online
Mood and Stress Questionnaire

This questionnaire helps indicate signs of Depression, Anxiety and Stress.  It can help you gain an insight into your present mood and stress.

Download the Mood/Stress Questionnaire
Dr. Wilson's Adrenal Fatigue Questionnaire

To get started go to this link, fill in the questionnaire and print out the result. You should be aware of your scores when booking  and bring them to your first consult.

Bookings and prices

Unlike many health practitioners Naturopaths spend the most time in our first session, discovering as much as possible about how your entire system works.

Our first session will take 1 hour depending on your needs and issues. After that most follow-up sessions are for 1/2 hour, with maybe longer if new issues or complications present themselves.

I also have a number of tests available, from advanced DNA screening to standard blood tests to hair and skin allergy tests. These can be invaluable in nailing down exactly how your body is responding and to what.

Initial Consult - $120

At this first meeting we will sit down together and look at your goals and the challenges you are experiencing with your health. We will then look at how all your body systems are performing in order to determine what may be driving your health issues. By looking at all areas we can determine the root cause and work on this rather than looking at what may be just 'obvious' symptoms.

Some free tests may also be performed such as a zinc taste test to look at zinc levels or a urinary indicans test, which identifies bad bacteria in the digestive system. I may also include iris, tongue and nail analysis.

By taking our time and looking at the big picture we can then create an action plan for short and long term goals to improve your health and well-being. These are summarized in a personal treatment plan, which we will progress and adapt over time.

What you will get

•  1 hour consultation
•  Basic tests as required
•  A written treatment plan specifying goals we wish to achieve, how we aim to get there and any instructions for lifestyle or nutritional changes that will help your well being.
•  Suggested protocol of herbs or supplements required to action the plan
•  Handouts to support the treatment plan such as food exclusion diets (e.g. gluten free diet) or to support special requirements, recipes to support specific diets, instructions for tests etc.

Follow-up Consult - $60

This is where we follow up usually between 1 – 3 weeks after the initial appointment and see how you are progressing. We review progress against the treatment plan and make adjustments accordingly. The number of follow ups depends on your progress.
