Vanessa Lamaro is an ANTA accredited Naturopath with a Bachelor of Health Science. Vanessa has been in clinical practice as a Naturopath in both Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast for the past 15 years, assisting her patients to overcome their health challenges and optimise their vitality and wellbeing. Over that time she has treated a very broad range of health concerns and has developed a strong competency in supporting people in most areas of health and disease.
Vanessa is a passionate health advocate and absolutely loves her work. She is continuously upgrading her skills through ongoing education and through peer-group case sharing. Though Vanessa has a broad range of expertise, her special interest lies in the areas of hormonal health (including gynaecological, thyroid and adrenal health) and fertility. She has co-authored nine eBooks on fertility and has developed a range of supplements targeted at addressing fertility and gynaecological issues. She assists her patients to break free from the often debilitating symptoms that dis-regulated hormones can cause and loves assisting couples to become families.
She believes in collaborative care and uses the best of both natural and medical expertise in assisting her patients. Her approach is to dig deep and to look at all causative factors that may be contributing to an individual’s unique health challenge. She uses thorough case-taking strategies and functional pathology testing to discover the most likely causation of her patients’ complaints and from this data creates a treatment plan. She recommends therapeutic herbal, nutritional and homoeopathic medicines and coaches her patients to create change through targeted dietary and lifestyle strategies. Vanessa also believes that true health and wellness comes from a balance of body, mind and soul. Assisting her patients to develop greater happiness, self-nurturing, self-kindness and life-balance are a big part of her work.
