Relying on the healing power of nature

focusing on the underlying causes of disease
For naturopathy treatments to work, underlying causes of illnesses must be addressed, rather than simply treating a patient’s symptoms.
FOCUSING ON YOU AS A whole person
By taking into account your individual physical, mental, emotional, environmental, social and spiritual factors when forming a bespoke treatment plan.
Emphasing prevention rather than cure

Naturopathy Practitioners use some of the following therapies/tools:

Frequently asked questions
about nutritional therapy
It depends on who you are…
If you’re a business owner, Naturopathy can decrease your stress levels and help show you how to eat better when you are in and out of meetings all day.
If you’re a parent, Naturopathy can help you and your family eat better and be a bit healthier. New mum’s can experience a lot of fatigue from sleepless nights so working on diet and sleep patterns can help a lot. Naturopathy can teach you how to eat move and be healthy long term too.
If you’re a student, revision can take hours, research and coursework deadlines can be stressful. Many students come to see us about their eating habits and how they struggle to concentrate for long hours. We can help with that.
If you’re active or use your body as the “tools of your trade” you can not afford time off work or sport due to injury. We give exercises to help you recover long term as well as manual therapy to get you better.
If you’ve tried traditional and conventional approaches in the past, but these have failed to help address your health complaints, then naturopathy may be for you.
Naturopathy may be good if you deal with any of the following conditions:
- Hormonal imbalances, such as those that cause irregular periods in women, infertility, low libido, etc.
- Digestive issues such as IBS and Acid Reflux
- Food allergies or intolerances
- Autoimmune diseases
- Recurring headaches and migraines
- Insomnia and sleeping problems
- Weight Management
- Chronic pain
- Respiratory issues
- Chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue and lethargy
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Mood-related issues that you feel are tied to your lifestyle, such as anxiety or depression
- Pregnancy (or if you’re trying to become pregnant)
Naturopath’s do not prescribe medical drugs but instead coach the client/patient on how to get healthier. Being healthier will give the body a better internal environment to allow for healing without medical drugs. Naturopath’s do when necessary advise on the use of some supplements as part of a healthy eating plan. Naturopath’s also understand and appreciate the need for medical drugs when necessary and do not recommend the cessation of medical drugs without the supervision by a GP.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” Hippocrates.
Nutrition is the foundation of a naturopathy and it’s practice. Whole, free range and when possible organic food is used for both health promotion and disease prevention. Naturopath’s recommend diets individualised for each person, though typically this means a balanced whole-food diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, wild-caught fish, lean animal proteins, whole dairy products.
In order to maximize the quality and nutritional value its often recommended to minimise the environmental impact and foods that are in best in their natural state, obtained locally, and eaten seasonally.
Naturopaths understand and appreciate how difficult and complex dietary changes can be, and assist their clients through these changes by providing bespoke recommendations.
No, in the UK Naturopaths are considered “traditional Naturopaths” that are more like a health consultant or wellness counsellor or health coach than a medical doctor. Naturopaths in the UK are fully trained and practice the traditional roots of Naturopathy but are not Medical Doctors as they are in America.
If is always difficult to say as it depends on the person, their condition and how they respond to recommendations. Further testing and clinical lab testing may needed to measure progress.
