Has been practicing as a Naturopath in Perth since 1994. He originally studied under some of Australia’s great Naturopaths and Herbalists, people such as Ricki Anderhuber ND, Val Allen ND, Dr. Robert Buist and Ruth Trickey ND as well as International teachers such as Dr Leonard Mehlmauer, Dr. Joseph Pesic and Dr Jack Tipps. He completed his studies at Perth Academy of Natural Therapies winning the awards for Best Performance in clinical practice and for Naturopathic prescribing.
Over time Gordon developed a particular interest in Iridology and Sclerology (the study of the white of the eye) and for eight years was the Principle lecturer in these modalities at Perth Academy of Natural Therapies. In conjunction with Elspeth Taimre ND he was instrumental in bringing Dr. Leonard Mehlmauer to Australia to lecture and help further his knowledge in Iridology and Sclerology. He combines his knowledge of these modalities with his knowledge of Herbal medicine, Homoeopathy, Flower Essences , Nutritional medicine and laboratory testing including Live blood screening & Salivary Hormone and Hair tissue mineral analysis to assess and prescribe for his patients. He regularly contributes articles to both Newspaper and Magazines and can be heard on talkback radio.
Gordon is passionate about Natural Medicine and has completed numerous post graduate courses in many of the different modalities available. Including a post graduate course in Herbal medicine. He is continually amazed and inspired by the complexity, efficiency and process of the human body and the incredible interaction of psyche ,physiology and energy systems that make us what and who we are. Gordon follows the principles of Naturopathic philosophy and believes in individually prepared naturopathic therapies.
He couples this with an innate belief in the power of the body to heal itself given the right environment and materials.
These include a balanced diet, sufficient rest, appropriate work, recreational time and spiritual pursuits which in turn equate to a positive outlook and a love of life!
Gordon is a member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association and the National Herbalists Association and is a registered provider for private health fund rebates.
