Hi, my name is Sophie Shields-Brown, Naturopath, Herbalist, Nutritionist, Iridologist and Remedial Massage Therapist.
I have been involved in Natural Health for a very long time. Food and healthy eating have been an interest of mine for many years. As a young person I grew herbs and have always enjoyed gardening. In my late teens I suffered from migraines and by eating the leaves of a feverfew plant, I had growing, I discovered first hand the wonderful benefits of herbs. It sparked a passion to learn more and ever since I have been on an exciting journey of engaging in the art of natural medicine.
I am passionate about helping people to reach their health goals naturally and will guide you through your diet, together with the use of herbs and supplements, to gain great health and an understanding of what you can do to help yourself to achieve the results you want. Education is paramount and with careful guidance clients gain an insight into how to achieve their health goals. I believe everyone should be treated as an individual and therefore each treatment protocol is tailor made to suit each client specifically to their needs.
Being married to a chef, food is a big part of life for us, we can spend many hours discussing our meal plans! I use food as medicine, but know how important it is for food to taste good as well as be good for you. I have spent years devising recipe ideas that allow food to be adaptable to specific health needs as well as still being enjoyable.
I have 2 children and also have a special interest in children’s health and am always learning how naturopathy can help children with autism spectrum disorders.
Other areas of special interest for me are Women’s Health, Internal Health, Emotional Wellbeing, Skin Conditions and Weight Management.
I am an Accredited Member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society, (ATMS).
Equilibrium Natural Health is located in the beautiful, historic town of Morpeth, near Maitland, NSW.
