Meet Merridy

NATUROPATH

As an experienced practitioner of Naturopathy in Adelaide, Merridy’s approach is unique. She focuses on identifying the cause(s) of imbalances or disease in her clients and offers them practical, sustainable solutions for the long-term, while providing immediate support for acute conditions. Merridy believes strongly that given the right nutrients, the body will heal itself and it is with this in mind that she seeks to help her clients restore their health. Her use of nutrition and lifestyle recommendations make her solutions achievable and effective.

WEIGHT LOSS SPECIALIST

With 63% of Australians now overweight or obese, we need to acknowledge that support is needed. Many people are overwhelmed by overweight issues and find it difficult to get started on a path to recovery. Weight loss is not just a matter of what you eat & how much exercise you do daily. It is far more complex and that is where Merridy can step in. She is an experienced practitioner in weight loss in Adelaide and has numerous clinical success stories. Her weight loss programs are all customised to suit the individual.

SKIN SPECIALIST

Merridy’s approach to managing skin conditions will always include consideration of the state of the gastrointestinal tract or gut. This is because a poorly functioning gut can be a trigger for many other health conditions. To ignore it, is to ignore the real cause of the skin problem. Just applying a cream topically is rarely going to resolve the problem. There needs to be a coordinated dietary plan, along with education on NDC’s (Neuroendocrine Disrupting Chemicals), treatment of stress & sleep deprivation in order to achieve improvement.

ALLERGIST

Many people nowadays are reactive to certain foods and also have allergies to pollens, grasses and moulds. This reactivity is a real problem and much of it comes down to the over-processing of our food and/or the fact that our immune systems are not what they once were. The flour that is made into bread today is a far cry from what it was like 20 years ago. Our immune systems suffer an overload of toxins from the environment and the promotion of sanitising our homes constantly. Merridy’s approach, as an allergist in Adelaide, is to find the cause of the imbalances or allergic reactions and treat them appropriately.

Merridy is a fully accredited member of ATMS (Australian Traditional Medicine Society).

Merridy-Casson

A Fabulous naturopath who role models everything she stands for. I've been seeing her for years and highly recommend her skills.

I cannot thank Merridy enough for all her hard work and efforts she has put in to help me. Since my very first appointment with Merridy; I have noticed massive changes to my body and how I was feeling. She doesn’t waste time during sessions and gets to the bottom of things. I never knew I could feel so good, and within just 3 sessions, she has solved all my problems and concerns relating to my body. Merridy should so be proud of her work and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking naturopathic assistance.

I recently completed my 10 week course with Merridy. She is very professional & also very friendly. I didn’t know what to expect at my 1st visit, but she made me feel very welcome & at ease from the moment I walked into her office. I have MS & she listen to me, and we worked together in what I could & couldn’t eat. Her food suggestions were always planned around me. The same applied to my exercise program she prepared.I would highly recommend Merridy to anyone considering to see a nutritionist. I had to travel from Gawler, but it was well worth the drive to Everard Park.

I first started seeing Merridy after a massive flare up of Psoriasis prior to Christmas, wanting to control my symptoms without the need for medication and painful steroidal creams. After extensive discussion detailing my lifestyle, we worked out my potential triggers and went about using a holistic approach, making some changes to my diet and lifestyle. The results to my skin and overall health have been fantastic. Merridy has helped me where other doctors (after many years of treatment) could not. I have also had some other unexpected health benefits from her treatment such as weight loss and improvements to inflammation issues in my ankles and joints. Anyone looking for a knowledgeable and experienced naturopath who is able to show you how to implement natural principles in a practical way, I would highly recommend Merridy’s services.

I started seeing Merridy when I was feeling lower abdominal pains, bloating and getting regular migraines. Visits to the GP and Gynae weren't giving me the answers I was looking for. Merridy had made me feel very comfortable with her kindness, professionalism and knowledge. I am happy to say that I no longer get migraines and have improved on my eating habits. I highly recommend Merridy.

I started seeing Merridy as I wasn't quite feeling right and wanted to get my heavy metals and hormones checked. When the results came back I was high in copper so I tried the detox for 4 weeks. It wasn't too hard to give up coffee, wheat, dairy, alcohol and I tried to eat organic where I could. The first week was the most for the elimination of toxins and after the 4 weeks I had lost 4 kg and felt that my hormones were more balanced. Since doing this I still try to stay away from wheat and cows milk and I have started my own vegie garden as I found it hard to get organic vegetables. It was well worth doing this for the 4 weeks.

Considering I wasn’t that much overweight when I started my detox (start 59.6kg) I’m thrilled with the amount of fat loss. I did this as my clothes were giving me muffin top & I was undoing top buttons of pants when sitting. Clothes had become very snug. They are now loose. Yipee…!!Along the way though I have enjoyed many other benefits that I didn’t think about at the start.My sleep is great every night.My skin is clear, doesn’t get dry & generally looks brighter.My hair is shinny.My nails are super strong.No more bloating & fluid retention. Energy to burn.Thanks for your support & knowledge Merridy. I’m a much happier me.Joanna

Merridy worked wonders getting my health back on track. I've lost weight, I've improved my mental health and I have a far better idea of what I'm eating and why. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in her field, she's also a lovely lady who I've really enjoyed chatting with on many occasions. I definitely recommend going to see her.

Merridy has been absolutely wonderful in helping me with my allergy symptoms, eczema and over all health. I have had eczema my whole life and severe allergy conjunctivitis for the past few years, with only short term relief from other medical professionals during this period. Since seeing Merridy and undertaking a low histamine diet, my eyes have improved significantly and my skin has never felt so smooth and eczema free! I highly recommend Merridy and her services.

I first went to see Merridy in Sept 2014 feeling absolutely terrible and having a lot of stomach problems. Merridy was fantastic in listening to what wasn't feeling right and starting me on the right track to feeling better. Since we started I have had a vast improvement in my overall health, the stomach problems that I thought were 'normal' have now almost disappeared and are diet related so I am now able to avoid the foods that cause the issues. I still have follow up appts periodically to check how I am going, I have also been doing cell health tests and have been extremely happy to see my results have been steadily improving.I recommend Merridy to anyone who isn't quite feeling right but considering it the norm, you will be amazed at how much she can help and how amazing you feel once you get on track :)

Best decision I ever made. It took me lots of courage to contact Merridy and I got response from her within 24 hrs. I have been trying to lose weights for a while now but I always put on extra after few months instead. I was quite stressed, depressed, worried and bad mental stage at my 1st consultation with Merridy. After our 1st session, I felt Merridy really listens to me, no judgemental and always gives me the advice to look the problem different angles and guides me through the reasons why my body + mind + guts are all in very bad stage. Then she guided me through step by step. Honestly, after our package, I changed a lot of the way how I look at my life, better understanding of my body, eat much better and be happier, more confident in life. I didn't drop much of weight but I lost quite a bit of cm around my abdominal, gain a bit of muscle.

My reason for seeing Merridy was to lose 3 or 4 kg and learn to maintain my weight. I lost 6 kg and 6 cm off my waist, feel fantastic and confident I will be able to maintain this weight. I am 68 and my biological age has gone from 72 to 62 in 10 weeks.I found Merridy very friendly and felt relaxed and comfortable from the first appointment. Merridy provided helpful hints along the way, and there are some lovely recipes on her website.I would highly recommend Merridy’s services.

Merridy gave me 3 very simple pieces of advice which when applied from day 1 successfully changed my health and therefore my life. This was about 4 years ago & not only myself but also my husbands weight & health benefited too. I'd like to upload a picture of my 'greens' at every meal! Thanks Merridy for the great start & if anyone is having doubts - just do it!

I went to see Merridy last year with a huge range of symptoms including constipation, reflux, food intolerances and Pain. Merridy ordered some tests and I was diagnosed with SIBO. After a comprehensive program of supplements and diet all of my symptoms have gone. Merridy was available for my many questions by phone and email and I felt finally like someone understood. Merridy clearly knows her stuff and I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.

I would definitely recommend Merridy, she is professional and friendly and always looking out for ways to help with your health. I came in trying to lose 5 kilos which i had tried to lose on various diets to no avail. I have lost almost 4 kilos so far and put on muscle. I have also improved my biomarker by 2 years. Something I wasn't expecting is that my anxiety and depression would be eased on the diet. Merridy suggested I may have a reaction to gluten and I found that after one night eating gluten again, I felt terrible. So I intend to experiment and will probably adopt this way of eating into the future to help me with anxiety and depression. I'm glad I'm seeing someone who looks at your whole health, not just weight loss.
