If you aren’t feeling your best but can’t seem to put your finger on the reason why, you may be among the many people accepting life at a sub-standard level of health.
What is naturopathy?
Naturopathy is more than just supplements! It is a holistic system of healing that incorporates a range of treatments and natural therapies, with the underlying belief that your body is able to fight infection and disease itself, given the right support. Naturopathy assists one to restore the equilibrium of the body, allowing the immune system to better defend against infection and disease. Food is used as medicine along with specific herbal remedies that help the healing process.
What do we use in naturopathy to help you?
Food is medicine. It contains all the nutrients and minerals that are required for good health. Together, we look at your daily diet and work tweak it to suit you and your body. We don’t eliminate, we substitute so you are still left with real food to eat!
We prepare plant based tonics that contain natural constituents and compounds which can biologically remedy a variety of illnesses. These are not always required but they can really help the healing process for some people.
Hands-on manual therapy releases built up tension and stored negative emotions to treat both physical and emotional disorders.
The practice of treating like with like in diluted remedy form.
We aim to use the least amount of supplements as possible. Not using supplements is great! Although, sometimes they may be needed to give a helping hand. Especially useful when immunity is compromised by illness.
