Sheena Smith is an Australian Naturopath who has worked in the health industry in Australia and Hong Kong for many years. She achieved her degree in Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) and an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy from the Melbourne College of Natural Medicine. Since qualifying she has worked with some of the top Naturopaths and Doctors to help both adults and children with different health conditions. Sheena specializes in women's health, digestive issues, weight management, pregnancy and fertility support, sports nutrition as well as diet and lifestyle advice for mental health.
“As a naturopath, I believe that we all have the innate ability to heal ourselves, all that we need is to give our body the correct tools to do so,” explains Sheena, who makes it her aim with each client to identify what specific tools he or she requires to get back to optimal health.
Sheena’s approach often includes an extensive investigation into the client’s past and present symptoms by utilizing diagnostic tests such as nutritional and hormonal profiles, food allergy test and bioimpedance analysis. The information gathered from these investigations can then be used to develop a personal health plan that is manageable and specific to the lifestyle, providing the client with the tools to implement these changes. These tools may include nutritional supplements, herbal mixtures, food lists, recipes, educational handouts and on going support and motivation.
In her spare time Sheena enjoys trail running and spending time with her beautiful young daughter. She believes in practicing what she preaches and is dedicated to keeping up to date with the latest research to provide the best possible treatment for her clients.
