Introducing Naturopath Chloe Wilkinson
2019 brings a new, but familiar face to the New Leaf Naturopathic Team – Chloe Wilkinson.
Many of you may know Chloe as the person who’s helped keep the clinic running for the past few years – but you may not know she’s also a naturopath.
In February 2019 Chloe will begin seeing clients at our Marrickville clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. You can book your appointment online here or give us a call to start your journey with Chloe.
Like all the naturopaths at New Leaf, Chloe is an Inner West local but grew up in the Snowy Mountains. She is passionate about cooking and educating her clients about the simple pleasures in life.
We asked Chloe a few questions so you can get to know her and how she practices.
Q. What led you to become a naturopath?
CHLOE: After working in the advertising industry full time I began to burn out and lost touch of what I was working to achieve. I decided to study Naturopathy purely to help people.
Q. What is your naturopathic philosophy?
CHLOE: Simple things are simple! I like to strip everything back to basics because often things are overlooked and that way it is much easier to get to the bottom of what’s going on. On top of this LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN! You know your body best and you know when something isn’t right.
Q.Where do you see naturopathy, herbs & nutrition making the biggest impact on your client’s lives?
CHLOE: Everywhere! It is honestly a case by case situation but the essence of naturopathy as a holistic therapy that takes everything into consideration means the end result isn’t one dimensional. If I had to really drum it down to one thing I would say most people see that they are in control of their own health and it really isn’t that hard when you put in the work – a new sense of empowerment.
Q. What can patients expect when they come and see you?
CHLOE: A no nonsense approach to finding out what lead to them to come in the first place, evidence based practice and lots and lots of questions.
Q. If there was only two or three things you ask your clients to do to improve their health and wellbeing what is it?
CHLOE: Cook and eat the rainbow (cooking is really easy and people should not be afraid of it!) and sleep!
Q. What is your go-to self care routine – your reset before or during the busy times.
CHLOE: JOMO – the joy of missing out – having the power to say no and to be ok with it is my first point of call for all self care.
Q. What is your favourite breakfast?
CHLOE: I can’t narrow it down to one! Poached eggs on quinoa and potato rosti cakes with avo, radishes, maybe a bit of pesto? If Im time poor – oats, chia pudding, berries, coyo and every seed in the cupboard.
Q. What is your favourite thing about Marrickville?
CHLOE: Lamia super deli – but an extension on that the amazing culture the Greek and Vietnamese migrants brought to this area and managed to maintain.
