What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy, also referred to as Naturopathic medicine, is a holistic approach to health and wellness with a key focus on the healing power of nature. The role of a naturopath is to identify the underlying cause of presenting ailments and facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This is achieved through the aid of herbal medicines, nutritional support and lifestyle adaptations.

How can Naturopathy help?

Naturopathic medicine can support a range of acute and chronic conditions including:

Digestive disorders – indigestion, reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies and intolerances

Immune conditions – allergies, hay fever, asthma, colds and flu’s, bronchitis and frequent/ recurrent infections

Autoimmune conditions – celiac disease, lupus/SLE, scleroderma, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thyroid conditions and multiple sclerosis.

Fatigue – chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal exhaustion, general lack of energy

Naturopathic medicine is a preventative form of health care. You don’t necessarily need to be unwell to see a Naturopath, maybe you just want to tune your eating habits or learn how you can improve your general wellbeing.
