Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a system of health care which promotes the body’s own self-healing mechanism using natural therapies such as Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Hydrotherapy, Physical Manipulations, Colonic Irrigation, Fasting, Detoxification, Exercise and others, following Naturopathic principles. 

The roots of Naturopathy can be traced back to the Greek philosopher Hippocrates, and the Hippocratic School of Medicine in 400 BC. Hippocrates valued the principles of Eastern medicine and believed in viewing a person as a whole, seeking the underlying cause of a disease by using the laws of nature to stimulate healing.

What is a Naturopathic Consultation?

During a naturopathic consultation we will investigate your health from many angles. Using high-tech Bio-resonance Technology we will analyse your organ functioning, vitamin & mineral levels, heavy metal toxicities and do a full body bio-health scan to identify if there are any tissues that are under particular stress. You can learn more about bio-resonance here.

Once we have identified the areas of stress, the same technology is then used to treat. We will also formulate a treatment plan which may include nutritional recommendations, naturopathic detoxification techniques, acupuncture, lifestyle advice and/or the use of purposeful supplementation. ​

For chronic conditions we recommend a course of treatments and have put together a comprehensive 5 Step Treatment Plan that includes the initial consultation, analysis and treatment of pathogens & microbes, DNA, cellular structures, tissues and organs.

Naturopathic Principles

1. The Healing Power of Nature:
The body can heal itself, given the right condition and treatment. There is a ‘Vital Force’ which is stimulated to promote health.

2. Treat the Cause, not a symptom:
Identify the underlying cause of illness rather than eliminating (suppressing) symptoms.

3. First do no Harm:
A Naturopath will always choose the most natural, least invasive and least toxic treatment, to avoid creating other imbalances or side effects.

4. Treat the Whole Person:
Recognise a patient’s individuality by taking into account individual physical, mental, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors.

5. Prevention is preferable to cure:
Prevention is preferable to cure in order to keep the bodies Vital Force at all times at its optimum.

6. Doctor as Teacher:
The Naturopath educates their patients by bringing a better understanding of health, how to maintain it and how to avoid getting sick. This way the patient can take responsibility for himself.
