What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare based on the belief that the body is always working towards optimum health and has the inherent ability to heal itself. When we truly understand that the mind, body and spirit are connected, we can find ways to live a life full of meaning, health and vitality.
Naturopaths are trained in Anatomy and Physiology, Clinical Medicine, Western Herbal Medicines, Nutrition and Lifestyle Modifications. We treat each person as an individual, and look for the cause(s) of dis-ease to support physical, mental and emotional health.
In-depth consultations and non-invasive techniques are used to assess one’s health, then using the healing power of nature a personalised prescription is provided which may include:
|Herbal Medicines||Nutritional Supplements||Dietary advice|
|to improve quality of life, prevent and treat various dis-ease||to target nutritional imbalances and support healing||to restore balance, support detoxification and prevention of dis-ease|
|Lifestyle advice||Flower Essences|
|to promote overall well-being and reduce stress||to enhance emotional healing|
Naturopathy Key Foundations:
|First, Do No Harm||Healing Power of Nature||Treat the Cause|
|(primum non nocere)||(vis medicatrix naturae)||(tolle causam)|
|The Hippocratic Oath taken by all medical professionals, to first consider the benefits vs risk when offering an intervention||Nature by design is neither lacking, and nothing is superfluous. Look to her for guidance.||A cascade of interventions masking symptoms is not sustainable. Find and treat the source.|
|Treat the Whole||Doctor as Teacher||Disease Prevention|
|(tolle totum)||(docere)||(ne morbo)|
|The mind, body & spirit are inexplicably linked; a holistic approach and personalised medicine are necessary.||Naturopaths trigger within you, your own ability to heal yourself. Sometimes all you need is the right information.||Prevention really is the best medicine! Naturopaths promote health.|
