Introducing Cush Reid - Naturopath - Wellington

My world changed when my health crashed as a result of the stresses of twenty years in the corporate environment. The birth of my youngest child at this time meant I had to change or go under. I turned to my long held interest in natural health and the mind body connection to search for answers to my own ill health and to discover just what was wrong with my baby.

Qualifications I am qualified in Nutritional Therapy; Functional Evaluation; Herbal Medicine; Rongoa Maori Medicine; Test Analysis; Fitgenes Gene Testing; Certified Gluten Practitioner; Neuromuscular Therapy; Life Coaching; Bio-Impedance Analysis (body composition); Live Blood Screening and BodyTalk. At Waikato Institute of Technology I was fortunate to be taught Human Science; Disease Processes; and Bio-chemistry by the Nursing Department. This experience has given me an understanding of the orthodox approach to health as well as a good science based knowledge and qualification. I love learning and enriching my knowledge.

I am able to apply my analytical thinking from my business career to my patient cases and this system has helped complex and difficult cases reveal to me the way forward to restore optimal function and good health.
How I like working I use a functional medicine approach to my clinical practice using my knowledge and experience to support this many faceted way of working. I take a broad focus on the mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and social aspects of well being and wholeness of health. The goal of this approach is to find the root cause of any unease or dysfunction in the body and work with this to restore optimal health and a balanced lifestyle. I use the following tests to identify and prioritise the areas to focus on: functional evaluation; zinc taste tally; urinary and oral pH; comprehensive diagnostic stool analysis; hair tissue analysis; salivary cortisol testing; food sensitivity testing; Fitgenes testing; blood tests; and various questionnaires.

My particular areas of experience are in nutrition; gluten sensitivity; the digestive system; stress; fatigue; adrenal fatigue; depression; anxiety (including adults and children with ADHD, ASD and OCD); weight management; hormonal health; gene testing; and the effects of stress on the health and wellbeing of the mind/body complex. I am particularly passionate about encouraging, supporting and educating my patients to develop and maintain a healthy body and lifestyle which brings the benefits of great energy levels; healthy ageing and enjoyment of life.

I am a certified BodyTalk practitioner and encourage my patients to add regular BodyTalk sessions into their treatment plans. To read more go to http://cushreid.co.nz/bodytalk/
