What is a Naturopath?
Naturopaths recognise and work with the natural healing processes within our own bodies, using traditional therapies from nature.
Naturopaths understand that the illness you are experiencing today is a result of complex physical, dietary, mental, emotional and environmental factors. Sometimes your body might need a gentle nudge to help it get back on the path to health.
Naturopathic medicine works with you to discover the underlying cause of your illness and will help your body to adapt, recover and heal itself.
We use many types of therapies depending on what is most relevant to your unique wellness journey. The following are fundamental to naturopathy:
Herbal medicine is an ancient art and science, which in modern times has also become known as phytotherapy. Herbal medicine makes use of complex plant extracts to gently support and encourage healing in the body.
The most well-known form of herbal medicine is herbal tea, however I will mostly prescribe herbs in the form of tablets or liquid formulas which have been designed for your individual requirements. Learn more
'Food as medicine' is a very old concept that is relevant today. The body requires many macro and micro nutrients for optimum functioning. These nutrients are found in our food.
I am dedicated to a whole food approach to healing and will always recommend dietary changes for any deficiencies. Nutrition can also be prescribed in the form of supplementation when necessary.

Flower essences are a wonderful way to gently work through emotional issues. Flower essences help us to get in touch with our own intuition about our lives, health, desires and abilities.
Flower essences can energetically correct underlying emotional issues and foster happiness, courage, strength, wisdom and love.
