What is Naturopathy?

Modern Naturopathy embodies the best traditional teachings with a practical, achievable way to improve your health, energy and vitality.

The founding philosophy of all natural therapies is that the body has an instilled will to live, remain healthy and if unwell – return to good health.

When taking your case history, a Naturopath considers your total health presentation to fully understand the underlying cause of your illness or lack of well-being. Questioning focuses on your symptoms, as well as a detailed discussion of other physical and emotional aspects that have contributed to your current health presentation.

An individual treatment plan is then designed for you that focuses on correcting the underlying cause of your ill health as well as providing more immediate relief of symptoms.

What to expect?

A typical initial treatment will include a comprehensive case discussion and take approximately 1 hour. Your treatment will start straight away and you will leave with recommendations that you can start implementing immediately, as well as any remedies that are prescribed.

Most people report improvement very quickly and we continue working together until your ideal state of health is achieved. Over time, it is the confidence and power that you regain over your own health that is the most satisfying aspect of Naturopathic treatment.

In recent years, the practice of quality natural medicine has flourished and integrated with mainstream healthcare in many ways.

Clinical Nutrition & Dietary Planning

Sensible, practical and manageable dietary advice is provided as part of your consultation. Information that is based on sound experience and research will be recommended and adapted to your lifestyle so that you can start incorporating genuine change immediately. No fads!
