Welcome to the Arcadia Health Centre

The clinic is conducted according to the philosophy of Natural Hygiene that emphasizes the importance of lifestyle as a key factor in the maintenance and recovery of health.

The Arcadia Health Centre is the first and only clinic practicing Natural Hygiene in Australia which is conducted by licensed and certified members of the International Association of Hygienic Physicians (established in 1961). Our procedures include, fasting, diet, activity, rest, environment, psychological and emotional influences, and are designed to remove the known and obvious causes of disease and provide the person with the requisites of health. These are applied to meet the specific needs of the individual.

The Centre receives patients from all over the world; many from the U.S.A. and Europe. The following are the most common ailments for which we are consulted, allergies, asthma, arthritis, cardiovascular problems, especially hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome or M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyeitis), colitis, ulcers and other digestive problems, obesity and eating disorders, migraine and other headaches, insomnia and nervous disturbances.

Our techniques have been employed continuously, in various clinics and institutions around the world, since the development of hygiene in the 19th Century. Modern science has now validated the principles and teachings and extensive documentation exists to support the practice.

The recovery of health demands both skilful care and a conducive environment. The care at Arcadia Health Centre is supervised by professionals specifically trained in the appropriate disciplines necessary to apply the principles of Hygiene. The environment is quiet, peaceful, scenic and unpolluted. It provides a haven for rest of body, mind and senses.

A significant distinguishing feature of our care is the emphasis on the treatment of the individual patient, not the disease. If many people have the same disease (diagnosis), all will have needs and capacities peculiar to themselves. The focus of Hygienic care is on the individual, we do not attempt to force the individual into the system but to adapt the system to the individual requirements.

Currently, Arcadia Health Centre is one of the few clinics in the world recognized as a teaching institution for graduate doctors by the International Association of Professional Hygienists Inc., Youngstown, Ohio, U.S.A.

Private Health funds will refund on consultations only, this varies from fund to fund. Our policy is to give separate receipts for the daily consultations, these can then be submitted to the insurance company for refund. Medicare does not cover at all.

If you have any questions about the Centre, or if you would like to make an appointment or receive further information, please do not hesitate to telephone the secretary.
