Christine Howell – PRACTITIONER

Christine Howell

Why did you become a naturopath ?

As a child I suffered from chronic bronchitis for many years. My parents had me treated by an acupuncturist, Chinese medicine doctors and finally naturopaths. It was my fascination with natural therapies as a teenager that created my long time love affair of naturopathy. I was determined that this was the career path for me. Some 20 years later, I’m still privileged to be doing what I love to do!

 

Why did you join The Lucy Rose Clinic?

I chose to join The Lucy Rose Clinic to expand my knowledge and professional experience in treating thyroid conditions. Having practised for many years, it felt like the ideal time to specialise in such a rewarding role. The Lucy Rose Clinic is such a fabulous company to work for. We are involved in a vast array of training experiences from thyroid specialists around the world. Our team has such a wealth of knowledge between us, so we have expert information at our fingertips.

What is the most memorable moment you’ve experienced at Lucy Rose?

The most memorable experience I have had working at Lucy Rose….well that’s a hard one! Would it be the weekly encounters I have with my patients who are finally getting their optimal health back and enjoying healthier and happier lives. Perhaps, the David Brownstein Australian tour back in 2016, where we travelled to his public speaking engagements and learned a kaleidoscope of information on his thyroid treatment protocols. Then there are our national training events each year where we indulge in days of nutritional, herbal and thyroid related research and catch up with all our staff nationwide. Too many memorable moments, to narrow it down to just one….

How do you think you can help patients?

I feel I can help my patients through better understanding of their thyroid conditions. Through the use of comprehensive diagnostic testing, thyroflex tests in clinic and compiling a thorough case history – thyroid treatment is so much easier to undertake. With the right answers, we have the definitive information we need to move forward and get patients felling well again. As symptoms disappear and good health is restored, lives are forever changed.
