A Naturopath approach aims to promote, restore and maintain health by naturally balancing the mind, body and soul.
Naturopathy first emerged in Ancient Greece, with the philosopher Hippocrates suggesting that a whole being must be analysed, with all aspects of their health and wellbeing duly considered to understand the cause of a disease and begin to cure it with natural remedies and resources.
It is based on the underlying principal that all systems within the body are interlinked; true health is only possible when the mind, body and spirit are in synch and dependent on one another for total harmony. When one of these aspects is disrupted we see symptoms manifest themselves in different areas. Prevention is key to maintaining good health and it’s recommended that you consult a naturopath even when you look and feel that you are in good health. Understanding how to maintain balance can help ensure that you stay that way.
Each person is unique; genetically, bio-chemically, structurally and emotionally. Be it inherited or acquired, each person has strengths and weaknesses and responds differently to external influences.
Our Naturopath will carefully assess your lifestyle and guide you towards self-healing via diet, supplements and further therapies that complement naturopathy. Drugs may be recommended alongside other treatments, though this can often mask symptoms or place further stress on the body, rather than promoting harmony.
