Naturopathy

Naturopathy considers the whole body
with all its complexities and interrelated systems.

How Can Naturopathy Help?

Naturopathy is a healthcare practice that harnesses the power of natural plant based medicines to facilitate healing and health maintenance within the body.

Naturopaths investigate the underlying causes of issues within the body in order to identify and develop a targeted and methodical approach to treatment. Treatment plans may include both symptomatic relief, long-term resolution and preventative medicine. In chronic conditions applying this approach may enhance quality of life and assist with slowing down further degradation of tissues. As individuals function slightly differently, we treat the unique presentation of the dysfunction or illness within the person. We look for key signs of nutrient and functional deficiency within the body that may be a precursor to advanced deficiency, disease and pathology states.

We use evidence-based medicine, sourcing our information from research studies that are published in credible and peer reviewed medical journals. We operate completely independently from any product suppliers and therefore can provide you with an unbiased treatment recommendation that best suits you and your budget. We use a number of tools to help facilitate healing and optimise performance such as herbal and nutritional medicine, dietary and lifestyle advice. We may also recommend medicines that help release emotion and facilitate healing or enhance an athlete’s focus and performance.

Naturopathy is sometimes referred to as complementary medicine because it complements many other allied health modalities and medicine models in order to facilitate the best outcomes for patients
