JSE stands for “Journey of Self- Empowerment” and that is exactly what I aim to do for you. Empower you on your journey to better health. As you may know trying to achieve better health is not a linear process. It is a journey with ups and downs; that with the right support can lead you to your intended destination. JSE health was born out of a desire to help others achieve vitality not just the absence of disease and to live the best life possible.
JSE Health is a holistic health service integrating modern medicine with natural remedies/management to provide the best overall healthcare. Why limit the options for your health when you can take the best evidence and what nature has to provide? Complimenting medical therapy or integrating as appropriate.
With the increasing demands on public health care, ageing population, exponential increases in lifestyle disease and mental health concerns; there is something amiss in the way we are managing our overall health. A different approach is needed to turn the tide of ill health and bring back vitality.
At JSE health I take the time to establish the contributing factors that maybe impending on your health/health goals. Whether you have a medical condition or just want to have more energy, JSE health aims to assist in vitalising the body, mind and spirit. The focus is you as a whole person not just an isolated set of symptoms. Time is spent with you, listening to your history and looking for interactions between your genetic tendencies, dietary habits environmental and lifestyle factors that influence your long-term health and chronic diseases.
The treatments I provide therefore include nutritional, herbal, medicinal and lifestyle advice. We are more educated than ever and want clarity on why we are being provided certain treatment options and to be included in the decision making process. When you work me I will ensure that you are involved every step of the way and will explain all the options you have. Your health is your wealth and it deserves the focus from a practitioner like me as I really care about you reaching your optimal health.
I am Courtney Dixon, and I am the sole proprietor of JSE Health. I have over 10 years’ experience as a hospital pharmacist working in various roles and capacities in the hospital sector. I’ve always maintained the goal of making health care safer and optimising outcomes. My vast medical experience is backed by my clinical studies which include a Bachelor of Pharmacy, Graduate Diploma of Clinical Pharmacy and now an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy.
While I see all manner of health concerns in my clinical practice and I love variety, I have a particular interest in neurology/mental health and integrating with medical management. I understand that while 100% natural treatment and lifestyle is ideal, and I want to help you achieve this, I also understand that sometimes people need medications / medical procedures in order to manage a condition. I believe in taking the best from all treatment options to obtain the most optimal outcome. There is no pressure or judgement to fit a particular mould. It is about what is best for you to get to your health goal(s) and work with you to achieve that.
I have had roles from deputy director of pharmacy to being a project officer in eHealth implementing electronic medication charts. I have developed medication safety projects and practices in the NSW Health, QLD health and assisted in the establishment of the first student run multidisciplinary clinic in QLD with CQU. I have also presented at state and national health conferences with focuses on education, cardiovascular health and critical care. But clinical duties and clients have always been my passion. Having worked in such environments highlighted to me the importance of considering the overall health of a person and not just their physical complaints. This is what led me to studying Naturopathy so that I could have even more impact in improving others health and wellbeing.
I believe that every person has a story to tell, a unique set of circumstances, genetic, physical, thought processes and emotional needs that leads them to the health they are currently experiencing. You can't fix a problem by only adjusting one function you need to look at how everything interplays. If you can’t support the whole person then treatments will fail again and again. Sometimes the problem is not the barrier you think it is.
