The fundamental philosophy of naturopathy is that given the right support and conditions for healing, the body in it’s innate wisdom knows how to heal itself. Symptoms are the body’s language that something is out of balance and needs to be addressed. Naturopathy is the use of several natural tools to support and stimulate this process. The ‘tools’ include diet and lifestyle modification, prescription of herbal medicines or nutritional supplements, the prescription of flower essences and counselling where necessary.

An important underlying principle of Naturopathy is the recognition that the body operates as a complete system, that nothing can be separated out of the whole. Everything is interconnected. All the components of the body influence and communicate with each other, and are influenced by the external circumstances and the physical environment we live in. The quality of diet and nutrient levels, sleep, degree of stress and amount of toxicity exposure are all things that may negatively or positively affect our health and wellbeing. Likewise, any beneficial changes made will affect the body in its entirety.

My aim as a Naturopath is to educate and support clients to make the changes necessary to restore their health and vitality. It is a process of empowering a client to reclaim their own ability to heal and take command of their health, to listen to their body and take notice of their body’s messages and to make adjustments where necessary. The best results are seen with clients who recognise the importance of this and take responsibility for their own healing journey.
