A system of healthcare that promotes the treatment of illness by activating the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. It aims not to treat symptoms but seeks to find the underlying root causes of the presenting issues and return personal responsibility for health to the individual.
Our Essential Health Assessment covers symptom assessment, optimal health basics, good nutrition, and gut health. It does not use Health Optimising medical technology. If in Clinic, the EHA will include the use of the Nutritional Profiler which provides an analysis of your mineral, toxin, and heavy metal status.
Combined with nutritional adjustments, psychological support, and lifestyle recommendations, naturopathy uses the vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of nature – to support the whole individual, strengthen their immune system and build the body’s defence against illness.
Biochemical integrity relates to how you nutrify and hydrate your body, avoiding toxins and malabsorption. Physical imbalance can be the root cause of ill health as it impacts the functioning and circulation of the body. A robust mental state is equally important for defending against disease. All three must be dynamically in balance to restore wellness.
