Aims of Naturopathic Treatment

Do you want to feel better, eliminate health problems, live longer, understand your health issues, become stronger and healthier, and basically solve the cause of your health problems?

Naturopathy may be the answer. Combining both conventional and natural medicine, naturopathy takes an integrated and holistic approach to health and the human body. Utilising a mixture of nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, iridology and more, naturopaths aim to investigate and treat the underlying causes of your health issues.

Naturopathy can help you with...

Women's Health

"I think it's my hormones!" is a common complaint from many of our patients. There are functional pathology tests to diagnose causes of problems with hormones, thyroid, and insomnia.

The reproductive hormones, mainly oestrogen and progesterone, are more accurately tested this way.

Blood tests only measure the amount of hormone in the blood, but not how much of the hormone has actually reached the cells. Salivary hormone testing is done at home, and then posted to the path laboratory.

Fatigue

Fatigue is commonly due to adrenal gland burnout. It may also be due to nutritional deficiencies in iron or certain B vitamins. It may also be a hormonal imbalance, including thyroid inactivity.

Long term fatigue of any cause can also lead to adrenal burn out. It then becomes a vicious circle.

You can have tests done for this to see just how stressed or underactive the adrenal glands are. The treatment is usually by high dose herbal and nutritional remedies, and also maybe a change in diet and lifestyle.

Detoxification

Hippocrates is known as the father of medicine. He advocated 'The Seven Doctors of Good Health and Vitality.' These are:

  1. Fresh air
  2. Sunshine
  3. Fresh water
  4. Nutritious food
  5. Regular exercise
  6. Adequate rest and sleep
  7. Regular relaxation, play, and happiness

An eighth one, which is very vital, is the elimination of toxins. This occurs through five channels in the body:

  • Bowels
  • Kidneys
  • Skin
  • Lungs
  • Liver

If any of these areas become overloaded, it puts greater stress on the others. This is why good detoxification programs are beneficial.

Digestion & Gut Health

Treatment aims at getting to the cause of the problem, rather than supplying band aid solutions.

Reflux, bloating, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, etc. may all be symptoms of varying causes, such as food intolerances/allergies, gut parasites, chronic stress, poor diet, or genetic imbalances.

Weight Loss

There are so many different diet theories that it seems complicated and often confusing.

When I give my patients a diet plan, I choose a diet that suits their individual body type, blood type, health issues, current cooking knowledge, and lifestyle.

Some people suit raw, some suit cooked, some vegetarian and some need meat. Food allergies and intolerances must also be taken into account. Food cravings need to be acknowledged and accommodated. Emotional eating has to be acknowledged too because it just doesn't go away that easily.

Stress

Long term stress can cause a depletion of the adrenal hormones. Most individuals who have depleted adrenal glands just go through life with fatigue, not knowing what is wrong with them. These people may be suffering from adrenal exhaustion or adrenal insufficiency.

Symptoms associated with adrenal insufficiency include fatigue, hypotension, lowered resistance to stress, salt cravings, hypoglycemia and lowered immunity. Adrenal insufficiency also frequently plays a role in conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and even depression/anxiety issues.
