Body Institute Frequently Asked Question’s

Adelaide Naturopath Karina on the phone at Body Institute in Goodwood.

Naturopaths support your health, whole body. 

We discuss your current symptoms, the way you’re feeling and the way your body is functioning.
A Naturopath will seek to determine the cause of your symptoms (diet, lifestyle and genetics will all play a role here). Then we work to support your body and have you feeling the way you want to feel.

If you have copies of your recent, relevant test results, bring them along with you.

If you are currently taking any supplements or medications, please bring details of these with you.

You’ll also be asked about your family’s medical history, so it’s a good idea to have a chat with your immediate family about any hereditary illnesses.

We offer a FREE pre-consultation discovery session. So you can chat to one of our Naturopaths, with no charge and no obligation to find out if seeing a naturopath is right for you.
There’s no pressure to book a consultation here, it’s just about you getting to know our practitioners and how they can help.
Please note our Naturopaths will not give any health advice in these sessions, just a generalised explanation on how we work and how we can help you.

You can book a free, pre-consult discovery session right here.

If you live remotely, work long hours or have little ones at home and find it hard to get into the clinic at Goodwood, we can organise an online / telehealth consultation.
These are exactly the same as in-person consultations, but you can stay home in comfort (and in your PJ’s if you like!).
You wont need to download any software for an online consultation. Once it’s booked in, you’ll be sent a link to a secure video connection. At the time of your appointment, click this link from your smartphone, tablet or computer and you’ll be online with your practitioner.

In the clinic we utilise Live Blood Screening. This is a finger prick blood test and we use it to assess hydration, inflammation, immune reactions and nutrient deficiencies.
We can also refer you for further, functional pathology.
We frequently have clients testing for hormonal imbalances, using the DUTCH test, food intolerances, using an IgG test and gut dysbiosis using CDSA + parasitology stool analysis. 

4 x 1:1 Consultations with a Naturopath
1 x Live Blood Screening
1 x functional test (IgG intolerance or CDSA + P)
Personalised Meal Plans
Unlimited Acute Care Consultations
Generous supplement budget to support your gut health

We love working with complex skin conditions like stubborn acne.
Our principal naturopath, Karina, can work with you to heal both internally (via naturopathic consultations) and externally (via facial treatments).

We find a combination of soothing irritated and inflamed skin and treating the internal drivers to be the most effective way to treat skin conditions
We also stock a range of natural, chemical and fragrance free skincare products specific to acne and eczema prone skin so that you can continue to support and heal your skin at home, between appointments. 

The Signature Facial is a 60 minute facial treatment using all natural, vegan and organic skincare products.

The Acne treatment facial is a 90 minute appointment and includes both a 60 minute signature facial and a naturopathic consultation so you can be sure you are being supported both internally and externally in your skin healing journey.

Body Institute Google Reviews

We pride ourselves on delivering a top notch service at Body Institute.
Below are few of our realtime reviews direct from Google.

I decided to make an appointment with Karina after she was highly recommended to me by two of my friends. When I first went to Karina I was experiencing problems with low energy levels, stress, reproductive concerns and gut issues. Karina and I worked closely together over the year and I was feeling better than ever after a series of check-ins and treatments. If I ever ran out of a prescribed supplement, instead of booking a whole new appointment, Karina allowed me to email her and would post the product out to me the next day. This was SO helpful as a full-time Uni student. After recently going on a working holiday to Fiji I returned feeling not so great and booked a DR appointment for blood tests and stool sample which of course, did not detect any 'abnormalities'. Frustrated as I was still feeling very sick, I contacted Karina straight away. She booked me in for an appointment that week and was so helpful in finding the cause of the problems I was experiencing. If you are looking for someone who listens to your health concerns and provides advice that is tailored to your lifestyle, practical and realistic, I couldn't recommend Karina enough.

Karina is an incredible naturopath, extremely easy to communicate with and her knowledge is amazing. My husband and I have both had huge success and the best part is the flexibility of online/phone consults (saves us a 6hr trip!). I will always recommend her to anyone as she has absolutely changed our life!
