About Naturopathy

Most people tend to let health take a back seat and becomes a priority only when symptoms become increasingly difficult or painful and when there is   medical diagnosis. Don’t ignore the small, nagging symptoms – it is your body’s way of telling you to pay attention and seek treatment if necessary.

Naturopathy is an alternative complementary medicine approach that focuses on gentle, non-invasive therapies. It includes treatment based on Clinical Nutrition, Dietetics, Herbal Medicine, Iridology and Homoeopathy to enhance the healing process.

As a certified and experienced Naturopath, in my consultation with you, I will assess and offer solutions to address your internal health, vitality and external appearance.  My focus is to:

  • Minimise your acute symptoms
  • Support your healing process
  • Re-balance your system
  • Enable you to live healthily, look  and feel younger longer

Principles of Natural Healing.

The healing power of nature:
Naturopath’s role is to help facilitate and activate a person’s own internal healing ability through natural therapies. The body can heal itself if given the right circumstances and conditions, whether the issue is acute or chronic.

 

Treat the Root cause:
Symptoms simply indicate that your body is out of balance. Naturopaths help Identify the underlying causes of disease so that we can treat it to enable the patient to recover or heal from the illness.  The treatment for patient is customized as each individual is uniquely different.

 

Heal the whole person:
The patient is viewed as a whole person and naturopathic treatment takes into account all aspects  of their life that can impact disease and improve healing. This requires a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment.

 

Prevention is the best cure:

There is also a strong focus on:

  • Prevention of health problems via healthy nutrition, diet, supplements and herbs and evidence-based treatments.
  • Early detection by using certain testing methods e.g. Functional Health Assessments.

 

The Naturopathic Physician as teacher:
Our aim is to educate and encourage the patient to take responsibility for their own health. It is the patient, not the doctor, who ultimately creates healing.
