What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy, as we know it, has evolved using the combination of modern treatment and traditional medicines.  A holisitc perspective underpinned by evidence-based practises. 

A consultation with a Naturopath is comprehensive and thorough.  We aim to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of your optimal wellness.  Naturopaths use the information patient's provide regarding such topics as diet, sleep quality, digestive health & function, diagnosed conditions, medical history and results of relevant pathology and functional tests like pieces of a puzzle.  These pieces are put together to give the practitioner a holistic overview of the possible causes of your maladies, your body's functional imbalances and how to treat them.

A treatment plan is then compiled highlighting discussion points during the consultation along with dietary & lifestyle advice. It may also include a prescription of herbal tinctures, nutritional supplements, bespoke flower essence blends and various other nutraceuticals.  It is paramount a patient becomes more aware of the causes of their dis-ease, more educated in the prevention or maintenance of it and more empowered to take the reigns in their journey to overcome it.

As your Naturopath I will always be guided by the Six Principles of Naturopathic medicine and partner with you to facilitate and support your body's own ability to heal itself.

The Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

First Do No Harm

Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

 

Identify and Treat the Causes

Investigate beyond symptoms to establish sustaining factors and underlying causes.

 

The Healing Power of Nature

Trust in the body’s inherent ability to heal itself

 

Doctor As Teacher

Educate patients in the steps to achieve and maintain health.

 

Treat the Whole Person

View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions. 

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

 

Prevention

Identify the catalyst for dis-ease and implement preventative

therapies when required.  Prevention is better than cure.
