Not your average Naturopath
Hi I’m Jade,
I love helping people reclaim their lives when they were led to believe there was nothing else they could do.
While I’ve been in clinical practice for almost six years, it’s the last three years that have seen my passion ignite.
Three years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis after 17 years of painful periods and being dismissed.
Not long after, trying to conceive for several months, we then went through IVF due to dual-factor infertility (male and female).
Much to our delight, we discovered that our our one and only viable embryo had actually split into two, resulting in identical twins.
But with this came a high risk, high-intervention pregnancy which resulted in our girls being born at 33 weeks due to a rare twin condition called TAPS (twin anaemia polycythaemia sequence).
Pair all of this with a cesarean birth, a challenging breastfeeding journey that I fought so hard for, a hard, sleep deprived, yet fulfilling first year of motherhood, and a marriage separation in the second year post-partum, you could say I’ve experienced a few things.
It’s due to these experiences that my passion and advocacy for reproductive health and supporting mothers has deepened, leading to creating a health team of four Naturopaths and regularly being interviewed on multiple podcasts, being featured in Bridget Hustwaite’s book “How to Endo”, and many other media sources.
The best way to truly get to know me is by following me on my instagram @jadewalkerhealth where I’m completely transparent in my own life as a twin mum in my daily stories, and share loads of info on endometriosis.
If you’re going through IVF you might also like to watch my IVF Story on YouTube.
As a degree-qualified Naturopath who’s worked amongst many health professionals, I have been able to help many people recover and live lives they didn’t think were possible.
Personally, I experienced a long-term battle with terrible period pain, gut issues and wavering moods before finally realising I had SIBO and endometriosis. I went on for years (in fact 18 years ’til diagnosed endo), not getting answers. Multiple visits to the ED, doctors and even a laparoscopy, and every time I was told everything’s “normal”.
It wasn’t until studying a bachelor of health science in Naturopathy that my eyes opened to the possibilities of 1) what my condition could be and 2) what can actually be done to heal.
So after researching, healing myself, and helping hundreds of clients, I now dedicate my life’s purpose to helping other women be able to experience better quality of life.
The key conditions we work with include:
- Endometriosis and adenomyosis
- Infertility and supporting IVF
- PMS and other period associated conditions
- Children’s health
- Hormonal acne
- Coming off the pill
- Unexplained digestive conditions
- Mood disturbances
- Autoimmune conditions
- CIRS (chronic inflammatory response syndrome e.g. mould toxicity)
We are also well versed in:
- The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP diet)
- Low FODMAP
We regularly refer clients for a range of functional tests that include blood tests or at-home tests. Functional tests are usually much more in-depth tests that give us a better picture as to what’s going on in a specific area, as opposed to your run of the mill standard blood tests.
Some of these functional tests include:
- DUTCH – Dried urine test for comprehensive hormones
- Co-Biome by Microba – gut microbiome and intestinal health testing
- OAT – Organic Acid Test
- SIBO breath Test
- KBMO Food Intolerance Testing
We can also support you with both figuring out the best tests you need for your current health status, and how to better interpret them, even when you were told they look normal (e.g. iron and vitamin D reference ranges are often not optimal, thus why you might still feel fatigued).
As is the beautiful thing about our profession, there is no one set protocol. You are unique. From general lifestyle and dietary advice, to fully directed prescriptions and programs, prescriptions can range from $0-$400. It is always your choice to invest in your treatments, but we will talk about what’s going on to get you the most effective and meaningful outcomes.
We also use an online prescription service allowing you to have the prescriptions mailed straight to your house within 2-3 business days.
Your virtual practitioner – available anywhere in the world.
Modern technology now allows us to experience holistic health care from the comfort of our own home – no need to travel through traffic.
We offer the core of our practice through an end-to-end encrypted TeleHealth system.
Our clients love this option for its flexibility and saving precious time. It also means you can be close by to your furry friends and children.
