Naturopathy is an approach to healthcare that is based upon the philosophy that the body has an inherent ability to heal and the wisdom to restore health and wellbeing, if barriers to healing are removed.
Naturopaths work to identify and address underlying causes of ill health and disease (rather than merely suppressing symptoms), using safe and non-invasive methods, such as herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and dietary and lifestyle interventions.
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare, where all aspects of the individual are taken into consideration, such as mental, physical, emotional, genetic, spiritual, environmental, social, and so on. Health education, future disease prevention, and health promotion are also central themes.
Herbal Medicine is utilised by Naturopaths and Medical Herbalists as a safe yet strong way to manage symptoms and address barriers to health. Around 40% of modern medicine prescriptions are derived from plants or synthesised compounds, even today! Herbal medicine uses these plants, and many more, as medicine in their whole form.
Side effects are minimal, and it is suitable for all ages. All our practitioners are degree-level trained in Herbal Medicine, ensuring safety in integration with any prescribed medications you may be taking. Herbal Medicine may be prescribed in the form of tinctures (liquid), tablets, teas, or creams.
Functional Testing may be offered by our experienced practitioners if relevant, including GI360, DUTCH, SIBO, Food Antibody, and OATs tests. For more information on functional testing, see our blog post on the topic.
What to expect
Private Consultations | 60 minutes
Your initial consultation is used to gather information to clearly establish how we can help you to achieve optimum health. Our aim is to address any underlying causes of your health concerns. This involves us taking a holistic look at your health, using our skills and training to gain a deep understanding of your health status.
At the end of your consultation an evaluation is made, taking into account all factors that may be influencing your health. We will then develop an individualised treatment plan which may include herbal medicine, natural supplements, and dietary and lifestyle advice and functional testing if necessary. We use the highest quality ‘practitioner only’ supplements, from leading, reputable companies that continue to clinically develop & research their ingredients ensuring maximum absorbability and effectiveness.
Follow Up Consultations | 30 minutes
Follow up appointments are then scheduled at your preference, typically being 2-3 weeks apart. During which we evaluate your progress and work together to add to or adjust your plan/programme.
Please note that all appointments are available in person, or via Skype, Zoom, or over the phone. A treatment period can be anything from 8 weeks to 6 months or longer for more complicated concerns.
