Naturopathy

Our Naturopaths combine scientific understanding of health conditions, with evidenced based supplementation and advice, to treat both the underlying cause of illness and the presenting symptoms.

Naturopathy provides a holistic approach to health, taking into consideration the body, mind and emotions and how these elements interact with each other to affect bodily function. Modern Naturopathy is an integrative approach to health care; combining scientific understanding of diagnosis, disease processes, testing and bodily function with the belief that the body has an innate intelligence to maintain wellness, if given the right circumstance and conditions. As the cause of mind, body and emotional imbalance can vary from person to person, our Naturopathic Team emphasis the importance of developing and implementing individually tailored health plans to treat the person and not the disease. Naturopathy employs evidenced based nutritional and herbal supplementation and dietary and lifestyle advice to address the underlying cause of imbalance and support the body in its ability to restore wellness.

Who can benefit from Naturopathy?
Naturopathy has a strong emphasis on prevention and is particularly effective in the treatment of chronic health conditions. Naturopathic practitioners are often referred to where a detailed case history and dietary review is needed and specific dietary, lifestyle and supplementation advice is required, for example, in conditions such as;

  • Suspected food sensitivities and intolerances
  • Chronic skin conditions
  • Digestive health issues
  • Obesity and metabolic syndrome
  • Weight loss
  • Anxiety and low mood
  • Menopause
  • Gynaecological disorders such as PCOS, Endometriosis
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Autoimmune conditions

Functional disorders are another common reason why people see Naturopaths. A functional disorder is a disorder that exists despite no diagnosable pathology, such as in the case of;

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Infertility
  • Gynaecological disorders such as premenstrual tension
  • Fatigue

Preventative medicine is another common reason why people see Naturopathic practitioners. Preventative medicine offers patients the opportunity to be proactive in their own healthcare and participate in preventative health strategies, such as in the case of;

  • Overweight/obesity
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Healthy Ageing
  • Wellness checks

These conditions are all examples of where there may be a number of underlying causes and a holistic approach is effective in restoring health and wellbeing.

Meet our Naturopathic Team
The Studio Naturopaths prioritises the healthcare needs of their patients by suggesting they choose the treatments that are in their best interests rather than choosing only those that themselves can provide. Importantly, our naturopaths recognise the limitations of natural therapies and take an integrative and collaborative approach to their clients’ health & wellbeing. When needed they refer their clients to other medical and allied health care practitioners and if possible, recommend practitioners who are happy to see patients who want to continue natural remedies and treatments.

Our Naturopaths are committed to being equipped with the most relevant cutting edge knowledge in natural health care and are dedicated to guiding, educating and supporting you in creating positive and long lasting changes for you and your family.
