naturopathyA Naturopath’s role as a primary healthcare professional is to diagnose and then treat the cause of human illness utilising only natural health care methods. Naturopathic medicine is totally drugless and non surgical.

Naturopathy is “wholistic” which means the naturopath treats the person as a whole rather than like a specialist who only looks at one specific area. Time honoured natural treatment methods like western herbal medicine, homeopathic  medicine,  vitamin and mineral supplementation, dietary therapy, body work and therapeutic massage, therapeutic exercise  and positive lifestyle advice are typically used.  Diagnosis is via standard pathology testing and thorough history taking .

Many Naturopaths may also run nutritional tests, salivary hormone tests and hair analysis and iridology(careful examination of the iris of the eye) to give them insight into the cause of persons condition. Once the initial complaint is addressed, Naturopathy is concerned with helping patients maintain this newly acquired health for life through regular Naturopathic assessment and care.

Personalised Approach

Everyone is different, the reason you have a particular health concern is not necessarily the reason someone else has that same condition. Because of this I take an individual and tailored approach to your care plan. Your care plan may include many Naturopathic approaches including :- positive lifestyle changes like making dietary changes, therapeutic exercise , sleep hygiene and stress reduction techniques. Balancing hormones, improving gut health, supporting adrenal function, and addressing nutritional deficiencies. Organising pathology testing, reading current tests that you may already have...and the list goes on, depending on your individual needs and situation. This is definitely not a cookie cutter approach.

I may even need to concurrently refer you to another healthcare professional for specific advice.

If required you will also receive pathology request forms via post or email, and pathology kits via post. These typically may include saliva testing for hormones, nutritional deficiency testing, hair mineral analysis, food sensitivity testing, complete digestive stool analysis to test lower gut function and range of other standard and functional tests. Please note tests are an extra cost, you will pay for these tests via the lab running the tests and its entirely your choice. Reports will be sent to me and we will then discuss the findings. And then additions to your initial appointment recommendations can be made with this new information.
