Vera Martins, PhD
Hi! I am Vera, a scientist who fell in love with the healing power of nature and became a Naturopath and Reiki healing practitioner.
Find your place of health and balance
As a naturopath, I provide a 360 degrees coverage of an individual’s health, using not only a variety of treatment tools but also empowering and educating patients about the choices that are right for them. In a naturopathic consultation, you will learn which foods are best for you, how herbs can help you and how to use them, and that even small adjustments to your lifestyle and thoughts can go a long way.
WHAT I CAN HELP YOU WITH
Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, acid reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), candida, parasite infections, and food intolerances. I may recommend relevant functional testing if appropriate.
At whatever stage of your life, a naturopathic consultation can help you creating the foundation for optimal health and disease prevention. A comprehensive health plan may include dietary guidance, key supplements, supportive herbs, and lifestyle changes. Relevant functional testing may also be recommended.
Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, racing mind, “wired but tired”. Discover how naturopathy, and particularly herbal medicine, can help supporting good sleep. Reiki therapy may also be recommended as a very successful tool in reducing anxiety and improving sleep.
Female hormone balance, PMS, PCOS, peri-menopause, and menopause. Relevant functional testing may be recommended if appropriate.
A low immune system can manifest as recurring colds, cold sores and allergies. Also, atopic conditions such as hay fever and eczema can be a result of compromised immunity.
Stress-related issues such as fatigue, low mood, poor sleep, and difficulty concentrating. Stress also affects cortisol production, which controls several aspects of health including thyroid function, hormone balance, weight, insulin sensitivity, and sleep. Functional testing to assess your cortisol profile may be used if appropriate. Reiki therapy may also be recommended.
The liver plays a crucial as the main detoxifier organ in the body, detoxifying chemicals and drugs and metabolising hormones. Therefore, a healthy liver is key for good health. If you have/had a poor diet and lifestyle, including too much alcohol, your liver may benefit from extra support.
