Naturopathy is one of the oldest healing approaches on the planet.
Today, Naturopaths have the added benefit of being able to combine this traditional knowledge with the latest scientific research to create a powerful integrative healing system.
Naturopaths believe that the body has the inherent knowledge to self-heal, given the environment and conditions to do so.
To optimise health, Naturopaths draw from a holistic combination of modalities, including botanical medicine, targeted use of foods as medicine and lifestyle optimisation techniques.
Naturopathic medicine is based on six fundamental principles:
The Healing Power of Nature
Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.
Identifying and Treating the Causes
Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
First Do No Harm
Utilise the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
Doctor as Teacher
Educate patients in the steps to achieve and maintaining health.
Treating the Whole Person
View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.
Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
