Today we're joined by Natasha Sidoti, a naturopath who blends distinctive listening skills and body language cues with modern science to achieve a more telling patient case.
Natasha observes the pattern of languaging and phrasing from a client resulting in some vast clues to what is going on with your patient.
After realising her cc debt was predominantly from health food stores, Tash decided to return for Uni once more and complete her Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy, leaving behind her original career path in Human Resources, Not for Profit work and Office Management.
Her adolescent years were spent in New Zealand, with a step-father who opened her eyes to organic farming and what it means to feel well from the inside out.
Now, Tash has a busy clinical practice in the Northern Beaches of Sydney and also loves speaking with health practitioners across Australia, providing technical support, training and GI-MAP guidance. The best of both worlds!
Over the years, Tash has become increasingly curious about the correlation between client language patterns, gut microbiome markers and digestive clinical symptoms.
This parallel linguistic interest compliments the Naturopathic framework to 'treat the whole person', with equal respect to both the verbal descriptives and functional testing biomarkers.
The more we truly listen to what is said, HOW it is phrased and what is UNsaid.... the more we can do for our patients.
Tash appreciates the nuanced detail one can gain from our unique microbes as much as the detail that can be gaged from client communication patterns.
Combining these observations is where the magic can really happen and longer-term, sustainable improvements are possible.
