Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process. It has been in practice for many centuries in Europe and is a tried, tested and trusted therapeutic approach.
HOW IT WORKS
After a comprehensive case history the Naturopathic treatment may include lifestyle recommendations, detoxification suggestions, herbal medicine, usually as a tincture, a homoeopathic remedy, and/or nutritional supplements. Naturopathy is a wholistic approach to pain and illness management.
MOST COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS
Naturopathy can alleviate a wide range of conditions and is suitable for all ages. Some of the more common conditions treated include fatigue, stress related ailments, digestive problems, PMT and general aches and pains, fertility and pregnancy support. Naturopathic treatments boost the body’s natural healing potential, restoring harmony and preventing disease.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
On your first visit, which lasts around an hour, the naturopath will assess your health history. This includes an exploration of your diet, lifestyle, stress and environmental factors, as well as family members’ health. Physical examination may include checking your hair, skin, nails and tongue, taking your blood pressure and/or performing or recommending clinical and laboratory diagnostic tests.
