What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a system of treatment and healthcare that focuses on the prevention of disease. It follows the principle that prevention is better than cure. It is a holistic system that employs various alternative therapies to support the body’s own ability to heal itself through nutrition, fasting, herbal medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, colon hydrotherapy, detox, body work, meditation and exercise. A naturopath would focus their work not only on treating the symptoms but the person as a whole, taking in consideration the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
In our clinic we use many of the above therapies primarily focusing on the following:
- Naturopathic Nutrition
- Colon Hydrotherapy
- Food intolerances
- Laboratory test
- Massage Reflexology
- Tailor made detox packages
- Supplements and herbal remedies
How do we work?
In a typical consultation we will assess your general health, dietary habits, digestive function, lifestyle and take a thorough medical history. This may include physical examination or laboratory testing. The consultation is very holistic, long and detailed. You will be asked to set personal goals and identify patterns indicative of biochemical imbalances in the body. Together we will reach a mutual agreement on dietary adjustments, supplementation, treatment protocol and lifestyle changes that will support your journey to optimum health. Your treatment protocol will be emailed to you within three working days after your consultation.
