Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a treatment which looks at all aspects of health to create a holistic view of your current health picture. This includes the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of health.

 

Naturopathy can:

  • Unlock the missing piece to the puzzle as to why you may not be feeling right

  • Increase your energy and vitality now and into the future

  • Set you up with good health habits to take forward into your life

  • Educate and empower you

  • Stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal

  • Prevent chronic disease and disability

 

As a naturopath and clinical nutritionist, Deborah will take a detailed look at your health. This means gathering information from you and looking at any pathology results you may have like blood tests for example. With that information plus your consultation she will make a holistic analysis and assessment to then deliver a treatment plan to you. Treatment options include herbal medicine, vitamins and mineral supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice. This in-depth analysis and generally has 3 parts to it.
