Naturopathy: practice of natural medicine and dietary advice
Naturopathy is the practice of using natural therapies to allow the body to heal itself. A Naturopath seeks to find the cause of the complaint, rather than just treating the symptoms associated with the complaint.
Naturopathy encompasses the concept of holism: meaning that there is a multifaceted approach when treating an individual. The person's emotional state, physical state and environment are all considered and worked into the treatment plan: as Naturopathy recognises the influence that all of these factors play on a person's state of health.
A naturopathic consultaion consists of your practitioner taking a comprehensive case history and putting together a personalised treatment plan. No two treatment plans are the same because everyone is different.
You can see an Naturopath for many conditions that you would consult a General Practitioner (GP) for. Many chronic conditions respond well to Naturopathy treatment; however, there are varying levels of evidence for effectiveness of treatments and response for different conditions and symptoms. Therefore, if you would like to know more about how Naturopathy may assist you with any of the following conditions, please discuss with your Naturopath:
Sleep and Anxiety
Dermatological complaints, including eczema (atopic dermatitis) and psoriasis
Weak Immune system
