Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a distinct and complete system of health care.

The foundational principles underlying the practice of naturopathy include:

  • Do no harm
  • Find and Treat the cause wherever possible
  • Treat the whole person, not only the symptoms, using education and preventative medicine.

Naturopathic medicine uses natural therapies to tap into the body’s self healing abilities.  Naturopathic medicine has developed into a well respected and sought after natural treatment for many individuals who want to try alternatives to pharmaceuticals and to improve their overall health and way of living.  Today naturopaths use scientific evidence as well as traditional evidence in practice.

    Herbal medicine

    The holistic effect of herbs works on a physical and energetic level to restore health. They can be used as teas, in fluid extract or taken as a tablet for acute or chronic illnesses.

      Nutritional medicine

      Hippocrates said “Let your food be your medicines, and your medicines your food”. Daily nutrition may need to be adjusted to meet the basic biochemical requirements to maintain health. Nutrition from whole foods and superfoods can be used to strengthen and nourish the body.  Sometimes supplements are needed to be prescribed when the body is out of balance.

      Mind body medicine and lifestyle advice

      This is an important area of health that is often neglected. It includes learning about relaxation, reducing stress and the mental patterning that creates our illnesses in the first place. Dealing with our stressors through visualisation, meditation, affirmations and exercise can create a calmer person and a more positive outlook on life.
