Kim Minos - Naturopath

Kim is a graduate of the Australian College of Natural Medicine with further study at Victoria University in Western Herbal Medicine and Health Sciences in Natural Medicine. He has sixteen years experience in complementary medicine working as a naturopath, herbalist and teaching naturopathy.

 

His love of plants started as a child which led him to a career in landscape gardening, bushland revegetation and environmental education. Kim has an innate understanding of the healing potential within nature. This love extends to growing a large variety of herbs in his garden ( see blog) which he uses to create his own herbal remedies and teas.

His first experience of a holistic approach to health care occurred in Thailand where he observed traditional healers working in villages. This experience opened his understanding of the potential of a holistic approach to healing. This was the catalyst for him to study Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine.

Kim has a unique approach to naturopathy, blending his wisdom of the healing potential of nature with his university science based learning to entwine the art and science of health and healing. Kim also draws on his own healing journey as he healed himself from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. This has given him compassion and understanding for the healing experience of his clients.
 
He has a holistic approach where body, heart, mind and spirit are considered in bringing about health and wholeness. Each patient is seen as an individual where he works empathically with them, addressing underlying causes to bring about wellness. He assists his patients through education to understand how they can become empowered in their journey towards optimal health and well-being.

Love Meditation

by Jen Taylor.

The thing I enjoy most about meditation isn’t just the practice of creating more stilling of the mind but also the awareness of bringing mindfulness into everyday activities.  In fact my experience of having to sit for some time has been somewhat challenging, many I have spoken with also share this inner conflict.  With a preference for the body and mind to be more active, I have at times felt challenged by the idea of trying to still the mind.  From patience and consistency though, I have found that the benefits are profound and now too have proven scientific results.

Delay Dementia

Currently there are a lot of stories and information in the media about dementia. We would like to offer you some clarification.

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.

Emotions & Psychological [...]

By Dr Elinor van Ommen.

“Am I too sensitive?” , “why can’t I move on from this?”… these are common questions I hear, and I often meet people who are in distress that relates to difficulty processing emotion.
