What is wellness?

Wellness is a state of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing beyond the manifestation of obvious disease symptoms. Wellness is concerned with achieving health for each individual.

Meet Cath Lilburn

Naturopathic Herbalist

I have been in practice for 25 years helping people’s physical and emotional wellbeing and I am passionate about educating people about their health. I work as a Herbalist but am grounded in a complementary, best of both worlds approach to health care which means I do what is best for each person I see and work in conjunction with medical doctors.

 

I originally studied a Bachelor Economics/Bachelor Arts (honours) at the ANU in Canberra before jumping headlong into the natural healthcare field. I finished an apprenticeship at a Canberra clinic while studying a Diploma of Herbal medicine with Dorothy Hall. In 1998 I moved with my husband to Newcastle and worked at a multidisciplinary practice while he completed his Medical degree. While living in Newcastle I studied with the very experienced Herbalist, Nancy Evelyn.

 

In 2002 I moved to Wollongong and worked at All Natural Therapies in Corrimal before starting a family and working from home. I love the flexibility of a home practice and offer patients a calm, tranquil clinic environment when they come to see me for their health care needs. I also offer Telehealth consultations for my clients who do not live locally and if they are unwell or in lockdown.

 

I am committed to ongoing education and regularly attend conferences and seminars. I receive monthly clinical mentoring with one of Australia’s most respected Nutritionist/Naturopaths, Rachel Arthur. In 2018 I completed a course on Integrative support for people with cancer taught by Integrative Naturopathic Oncologist Lise Alschuler.

 

have completed a Bachelor of Medicine Management (with professional honours in Complementary Medicine) through the Dept of Pharmacy at University of Tasmania. This degree was a research focussed degree with an emphasis on evidence based medicine, so this further grounds me in the best of both worlds: evidence based medicine and traditional/complementary medicine.

Catherine is a very caring and compassionate practitioner. She listens carefully to what I have to say and provides me with the necessary tonics and supplements to help me. She is very professional and interprets blood test results to tweak what she prescribes me.
