My name is Larissa Gilroy and I am the founder of Larissa Jane Naturopathy. I have always had an interest in health and looked for ways to improve my own and my family's health. My road to studying naturopathy came about as a result of chronic digestive and anxiety issues. I wasn't able to find the answers to my health concerns through mainstream medicine despite thorough testing; in fact most of my results were within the healthy range. It wasn't until I sat down with a natural health practitioner who spent some time learning about me and began to join the dots between my otherwise non-related symptoms that I began on the road to re-establishing my health. Most importantly, I began to FEEL better; my energy improved and so did my vitality for life.
What I learned from this process is that individualised healthcare is so important. We are all different and one solution does not work for everyone.
As my health improved, so did my confidence and I began to look at studying natural medicine. When I began my course the most daunting part was going in the carpark lift as I still had a lot of symptoms of anxiety. As my studies progressed I began to understand how my body systems were functioning, especially my nervous system, and I learned the skills I needed to support them. Now four years later I happily catch the lift every day!
I love what I do and feel absolutely honoured to be able help you re-establish your health and experience increased vitality in your life.
When I’m not studying health, I love to hang out with my family, cook delicious meals with my hubby and cycle around the beautiful Brisbane river.
