Clinic Information For New Patients

Extra details for new patients including car parking, comprehensive consultations, testing and bonus information

Thank you for choosing Well Being Institute of Australia to provide you with health care advice and treatment.

Our philosophy is to provide patients with high quality care and education.

Please complete the online questionaire and bring copies of reports, pathology results or any other medical related documents to your appointment.

Consultation Fees

Details of current consultation fees and Medicare rebates are available at reception and are also included in your online booking form. I understand that many people are doing it tough with the Covid-19 Pandemic and the second lock down has prompted me to reduce the initial one hour consultation fee to make it easier for you. This applies until 30 September 2020

Appointment Times:

Please arrive 10 minutes early so that you are relaxed and ready to get the most benefit from your consultation.

I am usually ready on time.

Clinic Car Park:

Our car park is accessible via the lane way behind the adjacent shops in High Street. Drive into Ward St, take a sharp left into the lane behind the shops and turn right into the car park at the rear of the clinic.

P.S. Please refrain from applying aftershave or perfumes prior to your appointment

How Long Is An Ideal Consultation?

Conversations take time. So do meaningful consultations. If you are like most clients, then you probably have at least three health concerns that have been getting you down for some time.

Your health questionnaire and previous test results are reviewed. Appropriate tests are ordered and the underlying causes of your health concerns are explained so that you can benefit from an individualised treatment plan.

Subsequent consultations review your progress and make sure that you are on track to getting your health and energy where you need them.

Three Useful Functional Medicine Tests

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Test

Anyone who is fatigued, stressed or feeling rundown benefits from this highly useful test. Discover your levels of healthy minerals such as calcium, magnesium sodium and zinc as well as levels of toxic metals such as mercury and lead.

NB Please wash your hair with normal shampoo (but not a dandruff shampoo) 4 to 24 hours before your appointment and do not apply any hair care products or gels. Ideally you will not have coloured your hair in the previous 6 weeks.

Microbiome  Test

This test is designed to assess your  microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that cause disease or that disrupt normal microbial balance and contribute to perturbations in the GI flora and contribute to illness.

The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers. It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses, and parasites.

It may be helpful for anyone with IBS/IBD, Abdominal cramps or pain, leaky gut symptoms, SIBO, Diarrhoea. Bloating or Fatigue

The Adrenocortex hormone profile

This test is a non-invasive saliva test that gives you helpful information of your stress response and adrenal imbalances. Lifestyle, physical and psychological stresses put constant demands on the adrenal glands. If they become depleted adrenal fatigue or insufficiency may be experienced.
