What is Naturopathy?

Nurture the body’s natural ability to heal.

The Naturopathy is a vitalistic healing modality. It is based on the understanding that every human being has an innate healing energy, which is responsible for wellness and the ability to heal and maintain health. This’ vital force ‘affects both our physical and the psychological well-being.  As a Naturopath, my primary focus is to support and stimulate this vital force . This is done in a gentle & non-invasive manner.

The focus of a conventional doctor is to diagnose and treat a disease, while as a Naturopath my focus is to understand the cause or causes of your illness and provide a treatment that is aimed to support your own innate healing abilities.

 

As a Naturopath, I view your health as holistic. This means, I believe that Complete Health is not merely the absence of disease but complete wellbeing on a physical, mental, emotional and soul level. I honour your uniqueness and I take your personal challenges and individual needs into consideration, so you can achieve Complete Health.

All treatments plans are completely personalised and are based on your unique needs. Treatments may include herbal medicine, flower essences, nutraceutical as well as personalised diet and lifestyle recommendations.

My aim is to help you understand what Complete Health looks like for you and I am passionate to not only help you achieve this, but also to provide you with knowledge and information, so you can feel empowered about your own health.

What happens during a Naturopathy Consultation

A Naturopathic consultation is an in-depth personal health assessment which will assess your health in a holistic way. I will talk to you about your most important health concern, as well as assess other areas of your health, that might contribute to your health issues. I might use iridology, nail & tongue analysis, as well as a number of other tests, including blood tests to provide an optimal health assessment for you.

I will provide you with a customised treatment plan, taking into account any medication or other treatments you are on, to ensure the treatment will be safe along with them. I will also keep your personal needs like a busy lifestyle and budget in mind when formulating your treatment plan.

The treatment plan can include dietary recipes and handouts as well as lifestyle recommendations and specific supplements or herbal medicines. Each treatment plan is tailormade for you.

To ensure the optimum treatment for you, I will map out your healing journey and use up to date research, to further assess your health state. I might also refer you for regular or functional pathology testing, to better assess your health state.
