Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine.
is a system of medicine based on the healing power of nature. Naturopathy is a holistic system, meaning that naturopathic doctors (N.D.) aim is to find the cause of disease by understanding the body, mind, and spirit of the person.
To Naturopaths the secret of good health lies in using the healing power of your body through natural medicines, not drugs.
What is Naturopathy?
In Naturopathy health isn’t simply the absence of disease. It is a state in which a person feels able to live to their full potential on a physical, mental, spiritual and emotional level. As your Therapist I know that healing comes from within you at a cellular level, so the aim is to identify the underlying cause of the illness.
When this has been assessed, a variety of natural, non-invasive remedies are utilised to activate and strengthen your body’s organs and systems to function at their optimal potential level. Through activating the body’s vital life force to eliminate the cause and restore the body to a state of balance I am taking very seriously the medical motto “first do no harm”.
How does it work?
I will ask you questions about your lifestyle, diet, medical history, and present medications. I may also use laboratory tests, or physical examinations such as iridology, hair, skin, nail and tongue signs to assess your health status and aid my diagnosis.
When can Naturopathy be used?
It has been proven to help with many acute and chronic conditions to do with the immune, skin, heart, circulatory system, and digestive system to name a few. As a responsible Naturopath I will advise you to consult your general practitioner when you have symptoms that may indicate a serious disease, so that we can work together in your treatment.
