Naturopathy | Naturotherapy Melbourne | Natural Therapist | Naturopath Carlton North
Naturopathy can be used to prevent, control or reduce the symptoms of many conditions. Along with lifestyle, dietary & exercise advice, a variety of therapeutic modalities are utilised to promote health.
Naturopathy is an effective and safe treatment for a wide range of health disorders. Naturopaths believe that the body has the power to heal itself if it is properly respected and given the very best nutrients and environment. More and more people are realizing that the suppression of symptoms is not a satisfactory way of achieving health. Health is not just the absence of symptoms of disease, but rather a balance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual factors that allow the person to live a rewarding and fulfilling life.
The Philosophy of Natural Medicine
1. First do no harm
2. Nature has healing powers
3. Identify and treat the cause
4. Treat the whole person
5. The physician is a teacher
6. Prevention is the best cure
7. Establish health and wellness
Along with common sense, lifestyle, dietary and exercise advice, a variety of therapeutic modalities are utilized to promote health. The current range of therapies our Centre offers includes clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, vitamin and mineral therapy, celloids, flower essences (‘Bach’, ‘Falling Leaves’, ‘Snow Modified’, ‘Complex’), counselling and many more.
During an initial consultation the presenting symptoms and relevant medication/s are noted and where necessary symptom relief becomes a priority. The remaining consultation will involve taking a thorough history, and an assessment of lifestyle and dietary habits, the function of various body systems, an iris analysis, zinc levels. A thorough examination is important to be able to ‘identify and treat the cause’, ‘treat the whole person’ in order to ‘establish health and wellness’! The treatment plan will include one or more of the therapies mentioned above. The client will be given a health appraisal questionnaire to complete at home and asked to bring in a urine sample (not all cases) for the return visit. The results may support the need for Detoxification – Bowel &/ Liver.
Please note that it is not always necessary to radically change diet and lifestyle or eliminate the foods, substances and activities that a client enjoys. Our Naturopath will work with the client to determine the treatment that will be comfortable, achievable and most effective for them.
