Meet the team
Jana has been with Calanna Wholehealth for over 3 years and a practicing Naturopath for over 7 years. She is professionally registered with ANTA, a Natural Fertility Educator and trained in Live Blood Microscopy and is passionate about helping people find the right balance in their health.
"Every day, science validates the importance of living a balanced and healthy life and where that doesn't happen, disease can sometimes occur. For each individual, the underlying cause of imbalance may be slightly different. Naturopathy is unique in that it allows a practitioner to further investigate the cause and provide a treatment that considers the whole person. For some people, a combination of western medicine and natural treatments produces the best result. As a Naturopath who is trained in herb-nutrient-pharmaceutical interactions, providing safe, effective and scientifically supported advice allows people to feel not just long-term relief from their symptoms, but confidence in their treatments and their practitioner.
Often those who see Naturopaths do so as a last resort. Where other practitioners couldn't help and you know you can, is exciting for me and rewarding when they report their positive results. But it's never just up to me. Many of my clients have to make big changes to get the results they're after. The commitment they show to improving their health, and the outcomes we achieve together, I find very inspiring."
General Manager and Pharmacist Matthew
Matthew has worked in pharmacy for over 20 years and has been the General manager for the group since 2005. He has always enjoyed helping people and being part of the community and says pharmacy allows you to do both through your knowledge on ailments and medicines and your easy accessibility to the community. He has always been interested in providing people with a number of solutions to their problem along with preventative advice which is a key focus for Calanna Wholehealth who have been providing access to naturopaths, a sleep clinic and medication compounding for decades.
Matt believes that as health professionals it is their role in the community not to just explain to people what ailment they have and how the medicine will fix it but also to help people live longer and healthier lives and prevent illness and disease through a number of different options including mainstream medicine, complimentary medicine, diet and exercise. While Matt's role in the group is very diverse and sees him dealing with every aspect of the business, one of his favourite parts of his job is still just being in sore helping customers. When Matt isn't busy with work he spends time catching up with friends, goes to the gym or for a swim, run or walk to keep his body moving and to recharge the brain. He also enjoys gardening reading and watching a good movie. His top tip for maintaining overall health?
"Keep active most days (even if that is just a half hour walk or some light stretching) and learn what foods and supplements are best to fuel your body".
