What is Naturopathy?

The goal of a Naturopath is to reach beyond easing symptoms and seek the actual cause of your problem. Stimulating your body’s own healing ability to increase your vitality because treating the source of imbalance will produce the real results!

The aim is to revitalize and heal your body. A variety of techniques may be used including herbal medicine, nutrition & lifestyle recommendations, vitamin & mineral supplementation, homoeopathy, iridology and flower essences to achieve this goal.

Naturopathy is based on the six principles of healing:

  • First do no harm
  • The healing power of nature
  • Identify and treat the cause
  • Heal the whole person
  • The naturopath as teacher
  • Prevention is the best cure

Naturopaths endeavour to empower clients to make new life choices that lead to better health and wellbeing.

Naturopathy can help with many health conditions by strengthening your body and stimulate the bodies own restorative abilities. Many clients have seen results with a range of health issues.

Naturopathy can assist you with general health or recurring acute and ongoing health conditions.Using traditional and evidence based natural therapies in conjunction with conventional health sciences I work along side your medical/and or health care practitioners encouraging a multi-disciplinary approach
I can provide Health Assessments & Therapeutic Wellness Programs.Laboratory and in-clinic testing, dietary advice, herbal medicine, vitamin and mineral therapy and prevention and lifestyle counselling.

Some of the many things a Naturopathic Consultation can assist you with include:

Digestive problems

Naturopathic Medicine has had huge success rates treating gas, bloating, heartburn, diarrhea, and constipation. Naturopathy can also help with serious digestive diseases including Crohn’s disease and colitis.

Hormonal conditions

Often complex cases, but once the root cause is established, results follow. Conditions including thyroid issues, pre/peri/post-menopause symptoms, and infertility

Weight gain and weight loss

Naturopathic Medicine offers customized plans based on nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, stress, toxicity, and hormones, because there’s no one-size-fits-all diet plan.

Chronic fatigue and low energy

Caffeine isn’t the answer. We need to measure the patient’s adrenal glands and review their nutrient levels.

Anxiety and depression

Patient-specific Naturopathic testing and correcting of neurotransmitters can be very advantageous to patients who suffer from depression and/or anxiety.

Chronic bacterial and viral conditions

Including mono, colds and flu, shingles, even herpes.


Whether it’s muscle or joint pain, Naturopathic Medicine looks for the root cause of the inflammation. Often, pain is connected to food sensitivities and other biochemical imbalances. Many nutritional supplements are as effective as painkillers, and don’t come at a cost to your health.


Type 2 diabetes is growing at a disturbing rate. But a huge percentage of type-2 diabetics can improve – if not cure – their disease through diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes.

Heart Disease

Yet another illness largely affected by lifestyle. Current research shows that we must look at inflammatory markers


I consider one of my strengths as a Naturopath to be, listening to you, assessing your current health both physically and emotionally and coming up with a  plan for your individual requirements and goals. This way you are given a holistic solution to enhance your well being that is personalised to YOU and will benefit YOU greatly.
