Julia Brosnan, Adv. Dip. 
Western Medical Herbalist

After experiencing severe hyperthyroidism postpartum, I have a first hand experience of the struggles that come with thyroid imbalances. Through herbs and specific nutrient supplements, I was able to overcome the condition and regain control over my health, without using any medications that had been prescribed. In fact, 6 months later, the endocrinologist didn't believe that I had not used one drug to get it under control!

Now in the midst of perimenopause, I have a deep understanding of the challenges of this phase of life, and the massive impact menopause has on the thyroid - it needs far more support. It is imperative that the body has nourishment from the right foods, herbs and essential nutrients so that the changes of menopause are easier to navigate.

Whilst some women prefer to use HRT to manage symptoms, I prefer to see if the natural way can support me first. Why prolong the duration of what is a very natural process for the body to go through - coming off HRT later on in an older body that needs even more nutrients to manage the ageing process, will ultimately make the journey longer and harder, and with complications or side effects that come with most drugs.

With customised packages that include biomarker testing, I can help you optimise your thyroid health, and facilitate a smoother menopause journey. Contact me today to learn more about how we can achieve this.

Julia is very easy to talk to and has provided me with expert advice. I would certainly recommend her. - Carole W.

I used to have hot flashes and a couple of other problems I got in touch with Julia, she gave me some herbals that really helped me. Thank you so much! - Imrana I.

Julia is a wonderful and gifted herbalist. Huge thanks for all of the treatments and help you have given me over this time. - Gaynor B.

I worked with Julia for 18 months - 2 years (I think). I came to her with hand rash and also hypoglycemic. The first thing she did was put me on herbs to support my thyroid which went a long way to sorting out some of my other issues. We did a few protocols and a lot of thyroid and adrenal work and I am now happy to say I have more energy, less tired and have also lost a stone in weight which I was struggling with. Can't recommend her enough. The font of all knowledge! Thank you Julia. - Becky S.

Honestly wish I'd found you sooner. Thank you. - Charlene C.

I'm much more settled in my spirit. I am strong. Thanks again. - Sharon M.

It is going well, Thank You. Slowly incorporating everything into my routine, I am enjoying the process and can feel a difference already. - Frieda S.

Could not recommend Julia enough. Such a lovely and caring lady and really listens to how you are feeling and what is best for you. Has helped me get better when I really thought it wasn’t possible. She is amazing! - Tasha B.
