What is Naturopathy & Herbal Medicine?

Naturopathy involves practices derived from a combination of traditional knowledge and current scientific research.

 

The philosophy of Naturopathy is that our bodies have the innate ability to be healthy and heal themselves, and if that is not happening, there is something which is impeding this ability.

 

The first part of treatment therefore, is to identify and remove aspects of diet and lifestyle which could be causing harm or disease within the body.

 

Sometimes however, our bodies need extra support, which we can achieve through nutritional, supplemental and herbal medicine.

How it Works

The recommendations made during a Naturopathic consult are safe and effective, working with underlying causes of illness, rather than a symptom based approach.

 

Through identification of the root cause of illness and progressive, natural treatments, it is possible to treat a wide range of conditions, from mild to severe, acute to chronic, from new-born to elderly, in all systems of the body.

 

As well as a treatment, Naturopathy is also an effective preventative medicine, helping the body to maintain health for years to come, decreasing risk of disease through education of healthy diet and lifestyle habits which nourish the body and mind.

Naturopathy can work alongside medical approaches, often improving the effect of necessary medications, and minimising the risk of adverse effects. I will at times refer patients to complimentary therapists such as Acupuncture or Osteopathy, taking into account not just physical health, but mental, emotional and energetic health too.
