What is Naturopathy?

Welcome to my new website! I am excited to share with you who I am and what my clinic is about and what it can offer you. I have also just launched my first Women’s Spiritual and Wellbeing Retreat commencing on the 20th April 2015 for 5 nights and for 8 special women only so be quick!

Many people ask me “what is a Naturopath?”

Well this photo helps to explain. Naturopathic Medicine is a primary health care system that encourages the body’s self-healing process though the use of Natural Therapies and Natural Medicines drawing on both Traditional Healing Methods and Modern Medical Science.

Preventing the long term use of pharmaceutical medicine when a natural medicine may work just as effectively if not better, without the side effects.

If you already are on pharmaceuticals we work around that and ensure there is no interactions with your natural medicines. We also have access to superior, high dose supplements and can advise you on a tailored made script for your particular health issues.

Don’t waste your money on self-prescribing retail products. Many people are doing more harm than good by taking incorrect supplements for their particular health issues.

Naturopaths empower people by teaching them about their own bodies and educating them in which conventional pathology and functional pathology testing may be available to assess what is happening inside of the body.

People choose to see a Naturopath as a private patient investing in further investigation into their own health. Whether it is to improve their wellbeing, prevent disease states, increase energy, spend an hour or longer with someone who can listen to assess their health complaints, investigate ongoing symptoms that have had no relief from, be educated on which supplements they should take, access higher dosage supplements, check for interactions in pharmaceuticals and natural medicines or just look at dietary changes and weight loss…………..a Naturopath is there to help you.

It is a specialised area of study and more and more people are starting to understand how a naturopath can assist them with their health.
