Horizon Health is the brainchild of Dr Louise Lecuna DC. Louise has a passion for health and wellness and is an advocate for women’s health and natural living. Louise started Horizon Health so that it could be a centre where people could come to be cared for in all aspects of their health and well-being. Horizon Health not only looks at a person’s physical health but also helps people overcome emotional challenges that may be holding them from moving forward. At Horizon Health a person’s health is viewed from a holistic perspective and with the view of prevention rather than treating a symptom.about Louise… I have always enjoyed keeping fit and being healthy. My intention with Horizon Health is to provide the best service possible and help others experience optimal health.
At the age of seven I was diagnosed with ADHD along with my entire family. There were many things that changed in my life overnight. We got rid of all food that contained artificial colour, flavour, preservative and large amounts of salicylates. We also eliminated harmful chemicals in our home. We used non-fluoridated herbal toothpaste and non-fluoridated water as my youngest sister was very sensitive to fluoride. I had no idea the impact that this would have on my life.
By eliminating all these foods and harmful chemicals my concentration improved and as I also was afflicted with “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” this disappeared as well. I knew that doing something in the health field was a path that I wanted to pursue.
I studied first as an Accountant but knew very early on that this was not my purpose. I went and lived in England with my husband Marcelo, working in different Investment Banks. I had the opportunity to be a patient of a Chiropractor who told me that I had such a great knowledge about the body and an interest in health and wellness that I should consider doing Chiropractic. I had seen Chiropractors since I was seven who helped me achieve great results and loved how I felt after every adjustment. So it was such a natural transition. I graduated from Macquarie University in 2004 with a Masters in Chiropractic. My approach is holistic looking at all areas of ones being. Whether it be Physical, Emotional, Chemical, Mental or Metaphysical.
After being invited to speak at a NSW Parliamentary enquiry into the overuse of drugs for treating children with ADHD, I knew that I had to tell my story. Some of the horror stories that I heard made me realise that my Mum made the right decision not to use drugs 30 years ago.
I am looking forward to imparting my knowledge and helping children, teenagers and adults experience happier and healthier lives now and for generations to come. It is definitely a process and not a “quick fix” or a “magic pill” but it is well worth the effort. I look forward to meeting and helping you along the journey to great health.
