As a naturopath, Sophia is determined to improve life for people living with significant fatigue syndromes such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Both conditions have a dramatic impact on quality of life but often patients have had to battle getting recognition of the condition, not only form health professionals but also understanding from their friends and family.
Patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are often very complicated and complex cases – with multiple areas of health being impacted simultaneously. Sophia works with each individual patient to elucidate how a myriad of symptoms can interrelate to present with a patient’s unique symptomatic presentation.
Sophia was initially inspired to become a naturopath through her own health concerns. Having experienced first-hand the frustration of expenditure and endless stream of health professionals, supplements, dietary restrictions and feelings of helplessness with no answers and little benefit.
Drawing on her extensive experience as a pharmacy dispensary technician over the past 11 years, Sophia is uniquely positioned to aid patients navigate how to effectively implement natural medicine alongside or in conjunction with conventional pharmaceutical medication.
Sophia went on to study naturopath at Endeavour Collage of Natural Health and completed Bachelor of Health Science, in addition to her Cert IV in Pharmacy qualification.
As a practitioner, Sophia understands that what works for one patient doesn’t work for another. As such, Sophia has a strong emphasis on in-depth case-taking and functional testing to have a clear understanding of the underlying causes of symptoms and a treatment plan that will get results.
