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 emphasise the importance of developing and implementing individually tailored health plans
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 to assist in the management of various health conditions, including.
Our Naturopaths prioritise the healthcare needs of their patients by suggesting they choose the treatments that are in the patients best interest, 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 patients health & wellbeing.
When needed they refer their patients 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.
