An integrated approach to IBS and Visceral Pain

At Vibe, we help you to gain control of your health through patient education about your state of health and provide strategies to reduce inflammation, improve energy levels, optimise digestive functions and give you the tools to turn your health and vitality around to restore quality of life.

How our naturopaths treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Through taking a full case history and clinical assessment of presenting conditions we use evidence-based nutritional and herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle coaching, to help repair function, reduce inflammation, tone organs and optimise body systems.

Naturopaths specialise in preventative medicine. It’s no quick-fix or a magic pill, the results a naturopath can achieve are restorative, non-invasive and cause no harm. At Vibe our focus is on chronic and persistent pain conditions.

We can also support your medical treatment with nutrition and diet advice and therapeutic nutritional supplementation, gentle herbal medicines and nervous system support.
