Shan at Luonto offers naturopathy & herbal medicine consultations, as well as basic diet, lifestyle and emotional balancing advice.
Services & Pricing
An Initial Naturopathy Consultation will generally last between 60 – 75 minutes. It involves a comprehensive case-taking and health analysis which includes taking your medical and health history and completing a full dietary, mood, lifestyle, physical and environmental assessment.
Depending on the case, some supplements and/or herbs may be prescribed in your first appointment. If any functional testing is recommended (stool, urine, saliva, blood spot, hair tissue) you will be given a referral form and/or kit, or you may be able to have some of these tests done via your GP. All of this information will then be analysed to create a specific treatment plan fully customized to your unique health situation!
A Future Follow Up Consultation will then be booked in 1-2 weeks to track your progress and discuss your health. Future Follow Up Consults can then be tailored to your unique health and financial situation.

Shan at Luonto will only be seeing both partners for fertility or pre-conception consultations. We will not see female clients on their own if it is for a pre-conception or “trying to conceive” consultation. This is due to the increased need for males health to be addressed as well as the females. Making a baby is comprised of 50% the male and 50% the female, and Andrology Australia states that “for about one in five infertile couples the problem lies solely in the male partner. It is estimated that one in 20 men has some kind of fertility problem with low numbers of sperm in his ejaculate” (https://www.andrologyaustralia.org/your-health/male-infertility/). It is often been the case that the woman bears the responsibility of becoming “healthy” and obtains treatment for fertility issues, however it is becoming increasingly apparent that treating solely the female in fertility cases is bordering on negligent health care. If the male is not addressed with the same investigations issues can arise further on down the track, such as the couple finding out the male has sub-optimal sperm. Ladies – this is not solely your journey! Commitment from both partners is essential. If you decide you are not wanting both partners to be treated, of if the male partner refuses to attend consultations I can refer you to another practitioner who may be able to assist through Skype consults.
Female gynaecological consults can still take place as a normal Initial Consult if the client is not trying to conceive. A disclaimer and waiver will be need to be signed as part of the intake sheet.
Future Follow Up Consultation (30 - 40 min) | $70 | Health Fund rebates available
