Intimate Ecology is a holistic health service supporting people who experience health issues in the area of the vulva, vagina, bladder and urinary health. Intimate ecology also offers support for genitourinary /penile health issues. 

Unlike other approaches to this important part of anatomy Intimate Ecology addresses a range of factors that might be preventing you from experiencing liberation from chronic and recurrent symptoms. 

Do you get regular bouts of vaginal thrush?

Experience Bacterial Vaginosis frequently?

Feeling self conscious about your vaginal odour and discharge?

Stuck in a cycle of over the counter treatments or regular pharmaceuticals?

Get symptoms every time you have sex?

Do you find you are worried about your intimate health and it’s affecting your relationships?

Experiencing regular urinary tract infections?

Worried that your hormonal and vaginal health might be impacting your fertility or pregnancy?

Found that something has changed and your not quite sure?

Experience pain and inflammation in your pelvis and genitals?

Not really sure what to do and how to fix it?

All of these scenarios may be related to the microbial inhabitants of the genitourinary system (bladder, vagina, penis, seminal). New understandings in this area show that there is a range of factors that can affect the balance of your intimate microbes making you more prone to infections and disturbances.

Being able to identify and address these influences on your microbes means that you can adjust and modify them, ultimately changing your intimate health and breaking the cycles of infection, pain and associated health issues. 

The path to health and liberation from symptoms is different for everyone. Intimate Ecology can work with you to find an approach that optimises your health and helps you to regain your confidence and wellbeing.

Intimate Ecology’s clinical approach is integrative, being able to work with you and your medical provider or independently. Intimate Ecology utilises holistic case taking, pathology testing and microbiome assessment to customise an approach that is as unique as you.

Intimate Ecology is based in the Yuggerah nation and acknowledges and pays respects to the Yugambeh, Koombumerrii and Bundjalung people, past, present and future, of the Gold Coast.

Practitioner education and Intimate Ecology

It seems that like society most educational establishments skip over the important parts when it comes to vaginas and intimate health, treating intimate and sexual health as a taboo.

Intimate Ecology offers a practitioner education service helping holistic therapists such as Naturopaths, Nutritionists and Herbalists upskill in the clinical assessment and address of the vaginal and genitourinary microbiomes.

Intimate Ecology offers regular intensive courses, practical webinars and short courses so that you can serve your clients better. All courses are eligible for CPD.
