Naturopathy encompassed modalities such as Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Iridology and Flower Essences, that provides an individualised approach to health using both evidence-based natural medicine and traditional philosophies to help stimulate the body’s own healing capabilities.
The key in Naturopathy is looking at the root causes of the whole person.
It is not about treating a symptom.
Food is Medicine.
Nutritional Medicine, encompasses a holistic approach in optimising nutrition according to individuals needs as food has a strong influence on the biochemistry of the body. From the quality of what we eat to where it comes from, to how it is produced, prepared and the quantities consumed.
The foundation to good health requires the correct form and balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and water. However lifestyle choices can throw this delicate balance into dysfunction and make our bodies more susceptible to chronic disease..
Herbs are still the most ancient form of medicine. They contain medicinal properties through the active constituents that give the plant its power. It is these specific constituents that have such a powerful affect on the body to regulate the dysfunction occurring. Working closely with your practitioner ensures no interactions with medications and only healing can take place.
The utilisation of pathology and functional testing helps to establish what the body is doing on a cellular level, from how it is functioning to what it is doing with the food we eat and more. It is important to treating disease, monitoring disease progression and the prevention of disease.
Flower essences are a type of vibrational therapy that have been used since ancient times.It has been used traditionally to heal physical, mental and emotional imbalances. Many healers throughout history understood physical manifestations of disease to be a result of emotional imbalance. Flower essences work by the principle of resonance within the subtle human energy field, which impacts one’s physical and emotional health. The essences work through vibrational energetics, rather than biochemical, to stimulate the body’s natural capacity to bring itself back to balance.
