NATUROPATHY- what is it??
Naturopathy is the western version of other holistic nature- based medical systems, that rely on natural eclectic remedies and diet management, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Naturopaths take an holistic approach, tailored to individual needs and we will ask detailed questions about your medical history, lifestyle, eating and sleeping patterns, bowel movements, menstrual cycle, work, relationships, likes and dislikes, as well as measuring your blood pressure and pulse.
As part of the consultation process we may call on a range of diagnostic techniques including Iridology, Vega Testing and Chinese Diagnostics to reveal predispositions or systemic weaknesses. These methods can detect anomalies before they may be detected by standard methods.
We use a range of natural treatments such as functional foods, medicinal herbs, detoxification, therapeutic nutrition, homoeopathy, bio-energetic techniques, massage, and hydrotherapy to stimulate self-healing processes, enhance immunity and emotional well being. We are able to offer advice to clients who wish natural therapeutic support prior to, or following, surgical procedures, high doses of anti-biotic cover, or any injury or trauma.
We aim to provide the best range possible of naturally based therapies, and we will continue to embrace learning and development in those fields which have been shown to be successful.
