Leading Melbourne naturopath Jason Eldridge has long been a renowned specialist in treating inflammatory and digestive conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. His passion has lead him into specialising in oncology support.
“My own experience with Crohn’s disease and subsequent frustration with western medicine led me on a personal healing journey and then onto healing others.”
Jason has been practicing naturopathy for over 15 years, helping many people get well and stay well by using traditional knowledge together with the very best of modern research.
Jason aims to uncover the underlying spiritual cause for disease and suffering, to bring deep levels of healing using safe, effective natural remedies to help you realise the soul’s full potential.
Jason is a lecturer at the Endeavour College of Natural Health (Australian College of Natural Medicine) where he teaches ‘Food as Medicine’ and ‘Rayid Iridology’. He lectures Rayid Iridology both nationally and abroad. He has undertaken extensive study with Denny Johnson (the founder of Rayid) and is a qualified Rayid Practitioner and Rayid Teacher with Rayid International.
Jason also has undertaken extensive research into nutrition and mental health, assisting in the development of HealthQuest Neurograph to assist practitioners in the analysis of brain neurotransmitter deficiencies such as serotonin and dopamine. Jason also developed the biochemistry module for HealthQuest helping practitioners interpret pathology tests from both a western medical and nutritional perspective.
Jason has a long standing passion for natural therapies and has been helping people back to vibrant health since 1991 when he started his own All Earth Health food store.
Kinesiologist, Wellness & Nutrition Coach, and Reiki practitioner.
Over the past 17 years, I have been passionately studying and learning about the human body, mind, and spirit through various formal and informal learning environments.
Over that time, I have been blessed to cross paths with some incredible teachers and mentors, who have taught me the importance of looking outside the box for answers, to have faith in the human spirit to overcome adversity, and to believe in our potential to do great things with this one precious life that we have been given.
My own life experience has included a few personal healing journeys, which have seen me heal myself of several health conditions in my early twenties, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, as well as more recently successfully putting an Autoimmune thyroid condition (Hashimoto’s) into remission.
Why do I share this with you? Because I believe my own journey and story is one that I can draw valuable experience from in helping others through their own healing journeys, as it has shown me what it takes to get well – and stay well. I believe that each of our healing journeys are going to be unique, and that what worked for me may not work for you… but what I DO know, is that there are some fundamental ingredients required to set people up for success in their health and life.
I know how challenging it can be to feel like you are at your wit’s end and all you want is someone to hold your hand and give you some direction and guidance that will help get you the hell out of there. So I see my role as your guide.. I will walk beside you, initially holding your hand if you need me to, and at the same time empowering you with the tools, skills and resources you need to be well and be happy! My intention for you is to become empowered in your own health and wellbeing, so that you don’t need me in your life anymore!
At the same time, know that I am not here to do the work for you… only you can do that. And I will only work with people who are willing to take responsibility for themselves and their choices. I help those who want to help themselves…
So… does it sound like we could make a good team? Can you see us working together? If yes, then let’s make a date to put this plan into action!
Naturopathy is a system of natural therapies which recognise the existence of a vital curative force within the body.
The origins of naturopathy can be traced to ancient Greece. Hippocrates, the “Father of modern medicine” once said “Nature is the healer of all disease” In his holistic view he recognised the body, mind and spirit linked to four elements (air, water, fire, earth) of the natural world. This organism that is body, mind and spirit is an amazing self repairing machine, given the appropriate conditions. The role of the naturopathic healer is to facilitate this process through teaching the natural way of life which advocates fresh air, pure water, wholesome foods and exercise to promote and maintain optimum wellbeing. Nature Cure is based upon these principles. Although the trials and tribulations of modern living have given rise to a contemporary naturopathy enabling us to adapt to the less than desirable conditions of the stressful modern world. The contemporary Naturopath draws on both an understanding of Western health science and traditional healing methods to treat a wide range of health conditions.
