Naturopathic care is the treatment for acute and chronic conditions affecting people of all ages from children to the elderly, and can be used in conjunction with medical care where necessary.
The aim of naturopathy is to regain homeostasis, which is lost in illness. Homeostasis is the self-regulating or balancing mechanism of the body, which maintains wellness. It is the goal of your Naturopath to identify the best ways to support your body in this task. Naturopathy encourages the healing power of nature by restoring bodily function and increasing vitality to enable the body to heal itself.
Naturopathy utilises a combination of natural therapeutics and healing techniques including: herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutritional supplements, flower essences and dietary advice. Naturopaths draw on naturopathic diagnostic techniques such as hair, tongue and nail analysis and iridology as well as utilising medical tests and assessments. These, together with a detailed case history, form the basis of the therapeutic care plan.

One of the many important naturopathic aims is to educate, empower and support you so that you can take a more active role in your own health care. By helping you adopt a healthy attitude and diet, you are guided to build a lifestyle that supports you and your family’s health and wellbeing.
