Naturopathy

Naturopathy uses treatments like nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy and massage to help the body heal itself. Disorders commonly treated by naturopaths include fatigue, digestive complaints, stress, mood disorders and depression, allergy and sensitivities, chronic fatigue syndrome, ADD/ADHD, fertility problems, premenstrual tension and menopause, autoimmune issues and thyroid problems. Naturopaths can also help you lose weight.

Originating in Germany, the medicine of Naturopathy has been recognised since the 19th Century, but Hippocrates himself, known as the father of modern medicine and living over 2000 years ago, treated his patients using similar principles still practised by naturopaths today. Despite many claiming that naturopathy has no scientific research to back it up, historical evidence shows that the healing power of nature has kept people well for centuries. We are of this earth. Using products of this earth is making sense to more and more people in the Western World today.  Traditional cultures such as the Tibetans and Chinese have continued to use natural medicine to keep their populations well and they have some of the longest living people in the world today.  So maybe it’s time for you to give this amazingly powerful healing a go!

Underlying Principles

First do no harm. Try to minimize harmful side effects and avoid suppression of symptoms.
Physician as teacher. Educate patients and encourage them to take responsibility for their own health.
Treat the whole person. Consider all factors (e.g., physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, genetic, environmental, social) when tailoring treatment to each patient.
Prevention. Assess risk factors and in partnership with patients, make appropriate interventions to prevent illness.
Healing power of nature. Seek to identify and remove obstacles to the body’s natural processes for maintaining and restoring health.
Treat the cause. Focus on the causes of a disease or condition, rather than its symptoms.
