One of the ironies of the current situation is that as the pandemic tightens its grip, many people are finding it harder to get the health care they need. Most alternative health practitioners in Australia are no longer able to see patients in person due to tight new restrictions.
Luckily there are a number of people in our region who are ready and willing to bridge this gap using digital technology.
Belle can help
Belle McPhee is an experienced herbalist, gut health and GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) practitioner. She works with all areas of gut health, as well as inflammatory conditions, hormonal imbalance issues, auto-immunity, depression, anxiety, and other psychological conditions.
Belle told Byron Healing she’s set up to do consultations via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and WhatsApp. ‘Whatever way I can connect with people during this difficult time for us all,’ she said.
‘I’m trying to keep stock of immune support supplements (supply is intermittent!’) and of course I’m making up herbs for people,’ Belle explained.
‘I can send to your door via Sendle or Australia Post – which means everyone can stay at home, where they should be.’
Belle is a big advocate for social distancing at this time, as well keeping surfaces wiped down, including door edges, door knobs, light switches, keys, cards and phones, as well as regular hand-washing.
Belle has lots more information about what she does, plus many glowing testimonials from many people she’s helped, from all walks of life, at her website. Satisfied clients include Northern Rivers locals and people from thousands of kilometres away.
She seeks to empower each of her patients by helping them join the dots of their health history, understanding and educating on what is needed (particularly tonics and food), and then staying with each individual on the journey to wellness.
For the ‘foreseeable future’ Belle is offering all her consults at 20% off, to ‘make sure health stays affordable for us all.’ She’s also offering online fermenting workshops zia Zoom ‘so while we are all at home we can learn the best skills for supporting our gut health and immunity.’
Belle has a free eBook, to keep up with everything she’s doing. You can join her mailing list at the same time.
