What Is Naturopathy
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare, founded on the belief the body has an innate ability to heal itself. It recognises the uniqueness of each person and uses the power of nature to heal and nourish the body.
As a qualified naturopath I have completed comprehensive studies in chemistry, biochemistry, human anatomy and physiology, microbiology, pharmacology and pathology. Studies are then broadened to include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine and dietary planning
YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST YOUR SYMPTOMS!
As a naturopath I work with you to identify the WHY instead of just treating your symptoms, supporting your thyroid and overall health and wellness. A really simple example is if you came to see me for constipation , I could work to return your poop to normal, but without identifying WHY you have constipation it will more than likely come back.
The human body is incredible in its ability to heal if it has the right tools for the job. Naturopathy is the practice of providing the body with those tools to help and heal naturally.
To restore balance I draw on a variety of tools including herbal medicine, dietary and lifestyle nourishment, nutritional supplements, kinesiology and flower essences – just to name a few!
I also believe in an integrated approach (or as a like to call it sometimes a ‘cheer squad’) when it comes to optimal health – this may include referrals to other health practitioners as well as working with your doctor if the need is there.
It really is all about you!
I know how empowering it is to have a supportive practitioner you can trust. My focus is to provide a nurturing and supportive environment so you are able to become the healthiest and happiest version of your self.
