Introducing Heather Summers!

Introducing Heather Summers, Senior Clinician, Optimal Health Group

Having qualified as a Naturopath in 2020 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), at Endeavour College of Natural Health Brisbane, Heather utilises nutrition, western herbal medicine, flower essence therapy and lifestyle modification and support with her clients.

In 2011, Heather was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and after being told by conventional medicine that there was nothing that could be done to improve her condition, she turned to holistic medicine and healed herself. Her special interests now include supporting others with Autoimmune conditions, to help them to truly understand these conditions and to establish the root cause. 

Her other passion is women’s reproductive health and fertility. Throughout her clinical practice over the past four years, she came to realise that there was very little support for women with reproductive issues within the current system, which was evident from the number of women that came to her for help. She now treats conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, PMS, PMDD, perimenopause and menopause. Further to this, she supports women that wish to stop taking hormonal contraception and provides education for them around their cycle and how to effectively practice The Fertility Awareness Method, depending on whether their goal is to conceive or to abstain from pregnancy.
