Just last year, a national report card released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare found that Australia was ranked fifth in the world for obesity. 28% of Australians are considered obese with 9.4% considered severely obese. The most troubling element of these statistics is that obesity has strong links to a number of serious illnesses and diseases. This is a health condition which is rising in prevalence yet without a national strategy in place, those struggling with obesity find it difficult to achieve success in tackling the condition.
If you are one of many Australians seeking treatment for obesity, know that a positive path lies ahead. You don’t have to subject yourself to pills and surgeries or starvation diets either to achieve your weight loss goals.

Why Consider a Naturopathy treatment for Obesity?
Obesity is a complex condition. There is no “one fits all” approach to alleviating it, there is no one magic route to moving towards a healthy weight. There are several factors which can lead to obesity including physical and mental health conditions, lifestyles, attitudes, family history, behaviours and nutritional education. To treat obesity, ALL of these factors must be taken into account. Obesity requires a holistic view to treatment, and that is the core principle of naturopathy.
As a qualified nutritionist and naturopath and a specialist in the field of naturopathy weight loss, our clinic director Marisa Camilleri can educate and guide you towards overcoming obesity. Naturopathy treatment for obesity isn’t about us healing you – it’s about helping you to heal yourself.
What happens at your first naturopathy treatment consultation?
During your first consultation, Marisa will conduct a thorough assessment to fully understand your health and wellbeing, your behaviours, medical history and the current state of your physical and mental health. She will spend an hour recording a thorough medical case history, including dietary evaluation, performing diagnostic techniques such as iridology and conducted any appropriate physical examinations to identify underlying health issues. She will seek to understand your needs and goals and the impact that obesity is having on your life. We also specialise in children’s naturopathy and can create a diet plan to fit the whole family
Through this thorough assessment, we can devise a treatment plan that is completely designed around you; a treatment plan that takes into account every single contributing factor to your obesity, and if you have diabetes, we can create a naturopathy treatment plan for diabetes that complements your obesity plan. Together, we can help to immediately begin your journey towards your goal weight, towards living the life you deserve.
