More and more Australians are turning to natural health and healing because it supports the body in gaining long-term optimal health, rather than the bandaid approach of just treating symptoms.
The art of holistic naturopathic healing encompasses the modalities of herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, and nutritional supplementation. The addition of flower remedies, iridology assessments, tissue salts, and celloids allows further flexibility in treatment prescriptions and restorative agents.
How can a naturopath help you achieve your wellness goals?
Functional and pathology testing
There is a misconception that you need to go to your local GP to organise all functional testing, however your naturopath has access to a full range of pathology tests to help determine the cause of your symptoms.
This testing allows your naturopathic practitioner the confidence to manage cases with the most appropriate therapeutic prescription.
Some of the tests available are: female hormone panels, cortisol and adrenal panels, sleep profile, thyroid profile, allergy and intolerance tests, full blood count and vitamin profile, stool testing, cardiovascular profile, coeliac profile, essential mineral and heavy metal analysis, and even COVID-19 testing.
Naturopaths know that disease prevention is crucial to good health, and that’s why we always look for the best way to keep the body in balance.
We take symptoms seriously. We look for the underlying cause of the symptoms and address that root cause so that we can prevent any further imbalance. We aim to minimise ill health from the outset.
Provide natural treatments
Naturopaths use non-invasive natural treatments to support healing. We use food as medicine and offer treatment plans which incorporate healing wholefoods as well as nutritional supplementation.
We use herbal medicines to target symptoms and rebalance the body.
We also consider lifestyle choices and how your environment impacts your health.
Informative and educational approach
As naturopathy is a holistic approach to healing, we offer a broad spectrum of advice on how to positively impact your physical wellness.
It’s important that patients feel a positive change in thinking toward their health, and that we can help each person to understand their body and the best approach for their healing.
Each treatment plan is individually tailored to provide the best healing outcomes to you.
Everyone is different, and that’s why we provide individualised care with your best interest (and health) at heart. Our ultimate goal is to rebalance your body and stimulate its ability to heal.
