Of Italian/Austrian heritage, Suzie comes from generations who have used nature for medicine. This might be a warm tea made from chamomile and fennel for a baby with colic. If someone had bronchitis they would be taken to the nearest pine forest in the Italian Alps at dawn. There they would take deep breaths when the pine leaves are the most open and their therapeutic properties are strongest.
It felt like a natural progression to formalise her knowledge. She soon found that if anyone at home was in need of treatment, Homeopathy was the modality she would first reach for but also using herbal medicine and nutrition to support the treatment. She is a mother of two and has parents in their mid 80s and 90s who are on no medications, except homeopathy and natural therapies.
Susie treats every patient as a whole by taking a thorough case history and she looks at removing the root cause of the disease state to find a balance between mind, body and spirit so as to bring stability to general health and increase vitality.
What Susie loves about homeopathy is that it not only can help with acute conditions but also long-term, chronic problems which often do not respond to conventional medicine. Most importantly, it is a way of caring for the whole person in such a way that there is no harm done.

Question: “What’s the best part of being a homeopath?” Answer: “Helping parents keep their kids healthy and happy and then working with the parents to help maintain their own health”. Linlee uses a pragmatic approach to health care. She includes a practical amount of nutritional support alongside homeopathy, which proves to be an especially effective combination for kids with glue ear, recurrent ear infections, conjunctivitis, large tonsils and coughs. Over the last 20 years in practice, Linlee has found that a major role of homeopathy is to help get kids off the antibiotic treadmill. This is where Linlee’s rich background in nursing and natural health is very helpful. She is happy to work with your local Doctor, if necessary, in order for you to get the best health care solution possible. “For children, where compliance to a treatment regime is often difficult, homeopathy shows the best results out of all the complementary health methods available. It tastes good – say no more!” Linlee has published many articles about the treatment of teething, post-traumatic birth problems, post partum depression, early behaviour problems, and developmental disorders. Her book “Challenging Children: Success with Homeopathy” contains a collection of stories from homeopaths around Australia who are treating these problems and each of the practitioners at the Harbord Homeopathic Clinic has contributed a case. The stories shows the breadth of what can be achieved even in difficult cases and what will happen long-term, so that parents know what to expect from homeopathic treatment. It was written after careful reflection on the priorities and needs of families who are seeking an alternative style of treatment. Natural Therapy page Join Linlee on Facebook
BSc DRM AdvDipHom
Penny studied Homeopathy and Remedial Massage at Nature Care College in St Leonards after completing a Science degree majoring in Anatomy at Sydney University. Penny has a special interest in family issues, and she has experience in the following areas of childhood: behavioural issues, sleep, nightmares, ear problems and digestive disorders. For the mothers, Penny focuses on assisting female hormonal issues, anxiety, mood swings, fertility management and stress. Penny has three children and her life experience in combination with her studies have given her an in-depth understanding of many of the issues that come with raising a family, from both a child and parent centred view. Penny’s sensible attitude to health as well as her ability to often find the lighter side to difficult times allow her to assist in finding perspective in the midst of family stress. Her experience in nutritional health issues complements the homeopathic medicine. At the 2012 Australian Homeopathic Medicine National Conference, Penny presented a paper on the treatment of glue ear for which she received much positive feedback. Basically her research found that treatment programmes using ear mix, plus a carefully chosen constitutional remedy, and some dietary advice had a high success rate. This is a finding of great importance since otitis media is such a common reason for children to be taken to the doctor for treatment. Natural Therapy page

Louise Ross-Campbell is a fully qualified naturopath and mother of two who lends her warm, friendly and professional nature to the clinic reception on Thursday and Friday. Her welcoming presence and extensive experience in the areas of nutrition and health, allow her to provide you with compassionate and knowledgable healthcare support. Please feel free to come into the clinic and ask Louise if you require assistance with a decision about which nutritional supplement to use, or if you require assistance with taking a hair sample for your Hair Analysis testing. She will be glad to help with your enquiry. Louise says “I am dedicated to supporting and teaching people how to feel as well as they can.”
During my twenties I saw a homeopath for my numerous health issues, it was during this process that I fell in love with homeopathy. I had been prescribed frequent rounds of antibiotics and other conventional treatments and slowly became aware that my health was deteriorating. After taking control of my health and my recovery I favour a more natural approach to medicine that encompasses body, mind and emotions. My family and I choose natural medicine as our preferred choice of healthcare and my 3 children (and our dog, Bear) are a testament to homeopathy as they seem to sail through life’s challenges.
I use an intuitive way of prescribing and I draw on an understanding of the ten components from the “Thinking Environment” to help create the best conditions for patients to maximise their outcomes. I appreciate the journey of healing is a joint process and I offer my full support during the process.
Through my own personal experience of suffering with emotional, skin, gut, chronic fatigue and respiratory issues this has led me to a deeper knowledge and understanding in these areas. General family healthcare, anxiety, depression and helping clients to limit their antibiotics usage are also my areas of interest. I enjoy supporting peoples’ own immune systems so their bodies’ can naturally fight against infectious diseases while at home or away travelling.
I am constantly expanding my knowledge in Homeopathy and beyond, and I feel being open minded to a variety of approaches and methods leads to successful prescriptions. I am also a trainer and educator in Homeopathy and Access Consciousness and I am available for talks in the clinic and externally. I regularly hold workshops to inform mums and dads on how they can use homeopathy in the home. Check out our events on the clinic Facebook page for our next talk. I am also involved with mentoring students and interns in the clinic and through the Australian Homeopathic Association at Woodford Folk Festival.
