Dr Sharon Chant is a Functional Medicine doctor. As a Functional Medicine doctor, Sharon strives to maximise your health with nutrition, meaning the right foods for your body and your metabolism.
Exercise, healthy mind and good thoughts, quality sleep and spiritual practices are all needed for optimizing mind, body and spirit. Vitamin and mineral supplements may also be needed to reach your optimal health.
Dr Chant had 20 years in Homeopathy before commencing Medicine in her mid 40’s. She was brought up in a family where their family doctor was ahead of his time and used Vitamins and Minerals to balance body function; so this was where she headed when she graduated from Medicine.
She has a bachelor of homeopathy, a bachelor of medicine (hons) and has completed further studies with the Institute of Functional Medicine and the Walsh Institute (Bio Balance).
Dr Chant tries to find the underlying cause of the discomfort and ill health. Could it be a food allergy, toxin, infection? Perhaps a gene that is not working at its best level.
Dr Chant’s special interests include nutrition, mental illness including anxiety and depression, autism and behavioural disorders, bio-identical hormone restoration, diabetes management, SIBO, adrenal health, thyroid health, pre conception and pregnancy planning, anti-natal and post-natal care, tick borne illnesses and women’s health including pap smears and breast exams.
