It’s a question I get asked a lot. And after all this time, I still find it hard to explain in a handful of words ?.
Naturopathy is a holistic system of healthcare which focuses on identifying and treating the underlying cause of disease and ill health.
The body possesses an inherent ability to heal itself – always trying to come back to a state of homeostasis or balance – like you witness with wound healing. However, sometimes it may need extra support along the way ⚖️.
We use a combination of evidence based research and traditional knowledge when it comes to treatment. Naturopathic medicine helps support the bodies natural ability to heal itself through the use of gentle therapeutics. Individualised treatment plans are tailored to your needs and may include dietary and lifestyle recommendations, nutrient supplementations, herbal medicine, energetic medicine such as flower essences or homeopathics or through body work ?.
Rather than symptom prescribing (though this can sometimes be necessary for the short term), we work to address the underlying/root cause of what is happening for you.
An initial consult generally lasts 75-90 minutes in which with your consent, we go through all aspects of your history and health including mental, emotional and physical health, we look into your diet, your lifestyle, your family history, take observations including nail, tongue, iris analysis and anything else that is relevant to your case ??.
For most people, naturopathic treatment has a de-layering effect, like an onion ?(or cake ?)with its multiple layers. Not everything will be resolved after one consult or treatment. Depending on the complexity of the case, multiple consults may be required spaced out over a few months.
But if you’re someone who is sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and want to feel vibrant again, than Naturopathy is for you! ????
