Naturopath - any recommendations?
I am looking into getting an allergy test and treatment for frequent headaches and migraines. I am in Hallett Cove and am keen to find a Naturopath or Nutritional Therapist nearby...any recommendations?

Thanks Simon...I am going to the doc next Monday. I come from a family of migraine sufferers so am used to having them on and off but not as frequently as they have been lately. Years ago I went to the doc about them and all they could do was prescribe heavy duty pain killers that would make me so drowzy that I decided to steer clear of them. Quite often it's hard to know what's causing the headaches and although pain killers help in the short term, I am looking for some help with diagnosing the cause and possible natural treatment of such. I suspect I will have to cut out certain well known trigger foods, such as chocolate (yikes!) and caffeine.
One of my colleagues suffered terribly from migraines was told to cut out wheat, dairy and sugar. She sticks to it - no headaches, is better for a while so forgets - migraines back in all their glory. Worth a try.
Thanks for sharing Zoot - it's always good to hear other people experiences. I have just today decided to cut out choc (not easy i can tell you!) and caffeine...but sugar and wheat is tricky - biscuits are too hard to ignore! Having said that I'd rather feel well and be migraine free.
