The beauty of naturopathy comes from the fact that no matter your age, health status or health goals, everyone can benefit from its healing principals. Here are the top five ways naturopathy can help you become your happiest and healthiest self in 2020.
Treatments as Unique as You!
Did you know that a standard first consultation with a naturopath can go for up to 1 hour? All this time spent with you means that we get to know you very well. This allows us to get a very detailed understanding of not only your health concerns but who you are as a person. When we get to know you on this deeper level, we are able to tailor your treatments to suit your individual needs to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us.
Tolle causam – Treat the Cause
During these extended consultations, naturopaths love to dig deep to find the root cause of your health concerns rather than just trying to eliminate any symptoms you may be experiencing. Headaches? Period Pain? Acne? Naturopaths don’t simply want to eliminate these symptoms, we want to get right to the bottom of why this is happening for you so that we can treat the underlying cause. This deep level of treatment allows us to get sustainable and long-term results for our patients.
Gentle Yet Powerful
Naturopathy uses the healing power of nature to allow the body to naturally aligns itself back into a state of balance. Although no two naturopaths will treat exactly the same, we all base our treatments around nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, energetic medicine, diet and lifestyle therapy. All these treatments are gentle and non-invasive and encourage the body’s innate ability to heal itself without any nasty side effects.
Why Can’t We Have Both?
And you can! Naturopathy works amazingly when used as a complimentary therapy with Western medicine. Having a multi-disciplinary team on your side throughout your treatment has shown to improve health outcomes and reduce healing time.
Unlike western medicine, naturopathy thrives in the area of preventative health care. For this reason, you do not need to be sick or have a diagnosed medical condition to see a naturopath. Our gentle and effective treatments really shine when we use them in this way. If you know you are coming into a busy period of your life, we can help you better cope with stress before it starts to take its toll. Want to avoid the dreaded winter cold and flus? We can help boost your immune system to keeping you fighting fit. You can even come and see us for a routine check-up and health review to make sure you are on the right track.
