Jean Martain ~ Naturopath, Nutrionist, Herbalist (BHSc Nat MANTA)
Hello I’m Jean : )
I am a degree qualified Naturopath trained in all areas of general Naturopathic practice. I have a special interest in chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety and autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s). I personally suffered with chronic fatigue syndrome for years while I was studying at university. On my journey to becoming a Naturopath I fell in love with the holistic natural approach to wellness. My goal is to share the knowledge I have gained on my health journey to inspire and empower you on your journey to wellness.
There are so many factors that can contribute to and lead to fatigue. For example, food intolerances, stress, thyroid dysfunction, nutrient deficiencies, virus’s, infection and many more. As a Naturopath I work as a detective to reveal underlying causes of imbalance incorporating the latest scientific research and traditional healing modalities. I work with patients on diet and lifestyle change, nutritional and herbal medicines,
flower essences and I use functional testing and iridology in my practice as other tools to get to the root cause.

Why you need natural medicines in autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s)?
In autoimmune thyroid disease the key focus of your treatment aims to regulate your immune system and deal with the underlying triggers that sent your immune system into over drive in the first place. Conventional treatment uses a medication called thyroxine which is a synthetic replacement of T4 (inactive thyroid hormone) which doesn’t work on regulating the autoimmunity that is causing your thyroid to become inactive in the first place! Herbal medicine works beautifully here to modulate the immune response while we find your triggers and support you to make diet and lifestyle changes to optimise thyroid function and conversion of the inactive T4 to the active T3 thyroid hormones.
The naturopathic consultation emphasises patient empowerment, education, clear treatment goals and qualified support using a combination of traditional healing knowledge and the latest scientific evidence for natural medicines.
