Dr Beth Steels

Some of our clients at New Farm Hypnotherapy Clinic need a little help and advice about nutrition and healthy eating. Dr Beth Steels has been in clinical practice as a biochemical nutritionist for over 20 years. Her focus as a practitioner is to look for the underlying causes of imbalance or an illness and focus on re-balancing metabolism allowing the body to correct itself, rather than just treatment of the symptoms.

Over the years of clinical practice as well as the clinical research, she believes that, while we have to understand modern medicine, fundamental physiology of the healthy body and metabolic changes that occur with dis-ease, we are also defined in health by  “what we eat and what we think”. Beth is a great asset at Brisbane Hypnosis Clinic – New Farm Hypnotherapy.
