Hi, I am Leanne Stockwell. I’m a Naturopath, Herbalist, Kinesiologist, Speaker and lover of all things to do with Natural Medicine and wellness.
WHY a career in Natural Medicine for me?
I grew up with a Mum who was a very busy Emergency and Recovery department Registered Nurse. She was a whizz (still is) and great at her job. However, she had a cupboard full of Natural medicines and was always reading about herbs, vitamins, different supplements, Tai Chi, pressure points etc.
She also took me to our local (amazing but pretty “left field”) chiropractor who cured me of tonsillitis when I was 13. SO, the upshot of all this was that I grew up with an understanding of natural medicine and an unshakeable belief that it worked….really well.
So after deciding I wanted to be a business/marketing person I went off to do a business degree and started working in retail marketing in Sydney. After a few years, I realised that something was missing, and I really wanted to follow my passion – Natural Medicine. So I packed up and moved to BrisVegas in 1993 to study Naturopathy, Massage, Nutrition and finally Kinesiology….and to cut a long story short, here I am today, still in BrisVegas doing what I love.
I completed my studies at the Australian College of Natural Medicine and have now been practicing in Brisbane for over 15 years. I use my Naturopathic knowledge as well as my skills in Kinesiology to get to the CAUSE of your health issues and get you back to being HEALTHY and feeling amazing again and free from illness.
As you probably know, when our bodies are unwell and out of balance, it’s not always just on a physical or biochemical level. Often, our emotions are also involved and can play a small (or large) part in our health issues. Clearing Emotional triggers, traumas and ‘baggage” is hugely important and always addressed when I work with my fabulous clients.
One of my greatest loves and greatest tools is Kinesiology. It helps me to pinpoint and treat many disorders in a more effective way. It shows us exactly what’s going on for you and also what the priority treatments and supplements are for you. The result is that you feel better much more quickly and you only take the supplements which are the priorities for you. This means fewer pills and potions AND less expense, not to mention a quicker result for you !!
I have a passion for working with women and am becoming known for my work in the areas of hormone imbalance, thyroid disorders, allergies, weight loss and detoxification. I also love working with children and getting to the bottom of their allergies.
One of my missions (in this life) is to rid the world of breast cancer. Big call – I know, but I see so many opportunities for Natural Medicine and lifestyle changes to make a major impact on this awful disease. I like to imagine a world in which there is no breast, uterine or ovarian cancer because women are really well-informed and have made the necessary changes in their life so that it never happens to them.
