Skype & Phone Consults with Pam Hird
Making it easier to make time for you. Online naturopath consults from the comfort and convenience of your home, office... or the beach.
We all lead busy lives, and one of the first things we sacrifice when we get busy is our own health.
Whether it’s work, study, raising a family or the general rush of modern life, there’s always something or someone needing our attention, and our time.
So we tend to push our own needs aside, ignore those niggling health issues, and tell ourselves, ‘it will wait’.
You’re not alone. I was was guilty of neglecting myself too.
While playing hockey, I was also studying, working, running a household, maintaining a strict workout regime, and trying to start a family.
But I was plagued with stress, fatigue, panic attacks, sleep disorders, occasional depression, irritable bowel syndrome, gut health issues, adult acne and PCOS. It probably won’t surprise you to learn, I was having difficulty falling pregnant, which eventually led to embarking on my IVF journey.
I was burnt out.
But I still felt it was selfish to look after myself. So I continued saying yes when I meant no, and pushing myself when my mind and body just wanted to rest.
Until I realised I couldn’t do my best work, or look after anyone around me, until I looked after myself first. And that’s when everything began to change.
Having been there, I know how hard it is to find time for ‘you’. Which is why I offer the convenience of online Skype consults. Without any need for travel, you can join me online from wherever you are, and start feeling better sooner.
Completing a degree in Naturopathy, and multi-disciplinary qualifications in Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and Personal Training, I had all the tools I needed to improve my health.
With a combination of science-based testing, pathology and hair analysis, I diagnosed deficiencies and imbalances contributing to my symptoms. I was able to treat these conditions naturally with tailored meal planning, high quality nutritional supplements, herbal medicines and lifestyle changes - including learning to make time for me.
I use these same methods for my patients in clinic, and online, providing a personalised approach to treat the individual as a whole - not just their symptoms. A part of my role as a naturopath is also to support my patients in making healthy lifestyle changes, and finding easily manageable and enjoyable ways to help you regain control of your health and happiness.
I offer all of these same benefits to my patients by Skype, with the added convenience of fitting into your busy schedule without any need for you to travel.

The convenience of online consultations
Many health practitioners battle with last minute cancellations. The reason? People usually make an appointment for themselves in a quiet moment, when they have time to think and reflect on their health, and those little issues they’ve been meaning to get on top of.
But then life gets in the way.
And the first items on the to-do list to get the chop are the appointments we make for ourselves - be it with a naturopath, nutritionist or a hairdresser.
Online consultations are designed to fit into your schedule, and allow me to come to you virtually, wherever you are - whether that’s your lounge room, your office, or the beach!
Benefits of online consultations
My Skype patients can access all of the same services, including testing, practitioner-only nutritional supplements and herbal medicines, which can be delivered direct to your door following your consultation.
Studies show 6 in 10 people now turn to internet searches for health advice and symptom checking. Unfortunately, Facebook groups have also become a hot-spot for people seeking and sharing opinions on everything from dietary advice to cancer cures, instead of seeking the help of a qualified health practitioner.
Relying on Doctor Google is not only ineffective, but it could be dangerous. One recent Australian study found approximately half of all consumers of web-based health information with chronic health conditions would benefit from support in finding accurate health information on the Internet.
Which is why I’m removing the guesswork for you, and providing access to personalised online health support from an experienced and qualified practitioner.
And I’m not alone. The field of telemedicine is growing rapidly and the United States is predicted to reach 7 million users of telemedicine this year. Practitioners across all modalities including natural health, GPs and medical specialists are reaching out to patients to offer the convenience of virtual online appointments, while also enjoying a greater work-life balance themselves.
So, if you’re ready to start feeling better but you don’t have the time to travel to a clinic, or you simply want the convenience of your own online Naturopath, book your online naturopathy appointment today and let’s get started on your healing journey.
