WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself.

What can Naturopathy in Brisbane do for you?

Naturopathic principles are based on:

* Treating each person as an individual,

* Treating the whole person and the underlying cause of their illness not just the symptoms,

* Educating you, the client/patient, as to appropriate nutrition and lifestyle choices that will enhance your health.

* Developing preventative measures to reduce recurring health problems.

 

This is achieved by providing a range of holistic treatment options, including:

* Herbal Medicine to help prevent and treat various illnesses

* Dietary and Nutritional advice for restoration of health and prevention of disease

* Lifestyle advice to promote well-being and to reduce stress

* Soft tissue manipulation to rebalance the body’s systems and to reduce pain

 

The Goal of Naturopathy is;

* To create a lifestyle that supports health and well being

* To prevent minor health issues turning into major illnesses.

What happens in a consultation?

PatrickMany people in Brisbane are unsure what to expect from a naturopathic consultation. The focus of a Naturopathic consultation is to ascertain the underlying cause of your health issues. Your initial consultation with Patrick will often take from 45 minutes to 1 hour, with follow-up appointments lasting 20 to 30 minutes. This is because a thorough assessment of your health status needs to be made, examining all aspects. A naturopathic consultation involves a taking a history of your health issues, examination of your diet. Ideally bringing along a record of a usual weeks food and beverage consumption would be really helpful. A consultation also includes an analysis of recent pathology results, non-invasive tests or examinations and a discussion to determine your health goals and the treatment plan realistic to your life. Attaining a complete understanding of all your health matters enables an individualised approach to alleviate symptoms, recognise the cause and pave the way back to optimum health and vitality. What types of health problems can Naturopathy Help? Virtually any health problem you may have can be helped with Naturopathic care.

Although Naturopathy is able assist in a wide range of health conditions, it excels in a number of areas.

These include:

Digestive Issues:

Digestive problems such as bloating, excessive flatulence, heartburn, constipation and abdominal discomfort are very common health conditions. Naturopathic medicine regards the digestivesystem, and recent scientific evidence supports this, as central to our overall health and wellbeing. Treating and improving digestive function can have widespread implications on all aspects of your health. For many of us major heath improvements can be achieved by simply improving your diet.

Respiratory and Immune Health – colds/flu/sinusitis/allergies:

The best medicine for respiratory and immune health is preventative medicine. Eating a nutritious diet, engaging in regular moderate exercise, a little sunshine, relaxation and good sleep have a profound effect on the health of our lungs and immune system. The health of our digestive system, the balance of good and bad bacteria in our gut, is also vitally important to the well-being of our respiratory and immune health. Again, major heathimprovements can be achieved by simply improving your diet. Appropriate herbal and nutritional supplements will also be recommended when needed.

Hormonal Imbalance:

Hormonal imbalance, which covers everything from menstrual irregularities and mood swings to menopause in women and testosterone to prostate problems in men, doesn’t have to be a permanent factor in your life. Dietary adjustments and the appropriate use of herbal and nutritional supplements can improve hormonal balance.

Nervous System Disorders:

This area encompasses general stress, sleeplessness, depression and energy and fatigue problems. These problems along with obesity and diabetes are a modern epidemic, natural interventions; nutritional and lifestyle modifications can have profound effects on these common symptoms.

General well-being and health maintenance:

Why wait until you are sick to do something about your health? We find it natural to maintain our car, house and wardrobe but often forget about a regular tuning for ourselves. If you are healthy on the inside you will look and feel a lot better. Many of today’s chronic diseases begin with a little weight gain, increased stress and a gradual fall into poor dietary and lifestyle habits. A regular health assessment can identify possible risk factors and offer you solutions aimed at maximising your health.
