Celeste Jones - ND
Clinical Naturopath, Integrative and Functional Medicine Practitioner
My name is Celeste. I am a degree qualified Clinical Naturopath, Functional and Integrative Medicine Practitioner.
Within clinical practice, I have access to an extensive array of both functional and conventional pathology testing, and utilise in depth-case questioning to gather a detailed case history. Considering deficiencies, intolerances, microbial health, neurotransmitter, hormone and adrenal function, biochemical imbalances, epigenetics, organ system functions, toxin exposure, detoxification and more.
Treatment plans are personally tailored according to your clinical assessment and test results. Prescriptive interventions regularly include; practitioner only nutraceuticals and bespoke herbal medicines, food as medicine, biohacking, and mindset coaching tools so patients feel equipped to make the required behaviour changes.
Holistic care is at the core of my approach with any condition, whether chronic or acute in nature. Intertwining the latest evidence-based and scientific research with traditional healing practices. I do not believe in isolation of parts, we work together on your mind, body, and spirit so you can become the best version of yourself possible, in all areas.
My passion for facilitating the intersection between mainstream and natural medicine allows patients to feel supported in an integrative manner.
My health story
At 18 years old I was living with anorexia nervosa which led to hormonal imbalances, amenorrhea, chronic cystic acne that covered my entire face, back and chest. Resulting in multiple courses of antibiotics, cascading into digestive issues and severe bloating. Simultaneously, I was experiencing, anxiety, depression, and OCD. My self-confidence was non-existent, leading me to be house bound for months. After feeling like all options had been exhausted, hope was sparked after my Mum had taken me to see a Naturopath, who not only helped me, but inspired me to pursue this as a career.
Throughout my degree, I started to experience chronic fatigue, pain, and burnout. Soon after I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, MTHFR, epstein-barr virus, and hypermobility spectrum disorder. However, I continued to work on my health and implement what I was learning, gradually peeling back the onion layers to return to optimum vitality, happiness, clear skin and regulate my menstrual cycle.
Personally, I deeply believe our bodies hold the capacity to heal when they’re provided the right environment. Perhaps through my own experience, I hold the empathy, warmth, and understanding, so many of us are searching for in clinicians. Wishful that my story brings you hope.
Journey to Functional Medicine
Whilst growing up natural healing practices were instilled into my lifestyle by my Mum and Grandma. Homemade vegetable juices, shots of olive leaf extract, sultanas were lollies, and if any health concerns cropped up, guaranteed to be followed by a phone call from my grandma telling us what page to turn to in ‘How to Get Well, Dr. Airola’s Handbook of Natural Healing’
A childhood embedded with natural healing practices was the seed planted. After experiencing my cocktail of health issues (as outlined in my health story) this was the catalyst for me to enrol into university to pursue naturopathic medicine.
Throughout my naturopathy training I spent many years working in community pharmacies, health shops, natural medicine spaces, a hospital and nursing homes. I couldn’t help to notice a pattern of both polypharmacy (over prescription of pharmaceuticals) and green allopathy (over prescription of supplements). Leading me down the path of functional medicine and the ‘test don’t guess’ philosophy. Subsequently, providing ‘data’ for precise, accurate and personalised interventions that aim to address the root cause of disease and underlying drivers of illness, whilst avoiding overprescribing, inaccurate interventions, and symptomatic suppression.
Dedicated to ongoing learning, I have completed practitioner training in functional medicine, currently studying a Master of Biomedical Science with specialisation in Food Biochemistry and in the application process towards postgraduate medical school. Upholding further career aspirations of becoming a Nutritional Biochemist and Integrative General Practitioner. Extracurricular activities include, writing articles on behalf of Doctors for Nutrition, magazine publications, keeping up to date with the latest research, receiving mentoring and attending practitioner trainings and seminars.
