Naturopathy is a comprehensive and natural approach to improving health and treating illness. It is a distinct profession of primary health care providers who emphasize preventative medicine and the promotion of optimal health through patient-centered education and individualized treatment.

Utilising a new approach to health care, current biochemical models of pathology and scientific research are integrated with a holistic perspective that considers the personal and family history including environmental, emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.

As a system of medicine the holistic approach predates Hippocrates ‘the father of medicine’ who himself emphasized environmental factors, diet and lifestyle in the development of disease.

Fundamental to naturopathic philosophy is the understanding that the body possesses an innate intelligence that works towards maintaining balance or homeostasis. Naturopathy aims to support this process by addressing nutritional imbalance, enhancing eliminatory functions, balancing cellular and systemic responses and supporting the individual as a whole.

Treatments may utilise a range of modalities:

  • Clinical Nutritional
  • Dietary changes
  • Herbal medicine
  • Homeopathic medicine
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Detoxification
  • Flower Essence therapy
  • Spirituality and Counseling

obstacles to vitality are removed, leaving the body free to return to its natural and vital state.
