BROOKE KLOWER

Brooke Klower is the owner and a naturopathic practitioner at Balanced Beings. Brooke started Balanced Beings when a large gap was seen among the lack of natural treatments and practitioners treating pediatrics and mothers. Brooke Klower is a naturopath but first and foremost a mother. Through her own health journey and her children's, she realised more holistic options need to be available to mothers.

Brooke has special interests in an array of paediatric conditions from autism spectrum disorder, histamine intolerance, pyrrole's disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to food intolerances, eczema, colic, reflux, diarrhoea, nutritional deficiency's, constipation, vaccination support, sleep issues and eating support. 

Brooke also understands that the health of children starts from breastfeeding, postpartum, preconception and pregnancy and therefore she loves focusing on this area. Brooke also commonly sees sexual health and women's conditions such as thrush, urinary tract infections, bacterial vaginosis, erectile dysfunction, herpes simplex, HPV, infertility, libido, hormonal irregularities, amenorrhea, endometriosis and PCOS. 

Brooke uses naturopath tools such as client education, nutrition and nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine, lifestyle modifications, hydrotherapy and flower essences within treatments.

More about Evie 
Favourite Herb:
Ginger - I love that ginger is versatile and I often use it as food as medicine. I find it is amazing at warming digestion to reduce most digestive symptoms and is great for circulation and feeling energised. I also love it because it helps reduce systemic inflammation in the body which is common in so many conditions such as - painful periods and joint pain. I also love the taste in lemon, honey, ginger tea and in soups etc. 

Favourite Nutrient:
I was also going to say zinc! However, I also love B vitamins as they play a role in so many different pathways in the body such as liver detoxification, neurotransmitter synthesis, hormone metabolism, energy production and cell metabolism. Super useful with issues such as fatigue, anxiety/low mood, stress/burnout and hormonal imbalances. 

Favourite Food:
Eggs - again, so versatile in cooking and contain many nutrients overall. High in protein and fats to stabilize blood sugar levels for optimal energy and mood and eggs are also high in B12 for healthy nerve and brain function. Eggs contain choline which also helps reduce the risk of some birth defects.
