Why Choose Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a distinct and complete system of health care. Six foundational principles underpin the practice of naturopathy:

  1.   The Healing Power of Nature
  2.   First Do No Harm
  3.   Find and Treat the Cause Wherever Possible – Not Only the Symptoms
  4.   Treat the Whole Person
  5.   Education
  6.   Prevention

 

These six principles are kept in mind when a naturopath takes your case, develops a treatment plan and also offers maintenance for long term good health.

 

What Happens in a Naturopathy Consultation

The Naturopath sits down with you for a much longer period of time than your GP, for the initial consult you may sit up to 1.5 hours with your Naturopath. This is due to the fact that a Naturopath considers you as a whole person with a body, a mind and a heart. They want to know about your health situation along all those levels and therefore have a lot of questions to ask.

At the end of the session, they may do some general physical, non-invasive health tests with you, e.g. zinc test, blood pressure. If further tests are required, the Naturopath will organize this for the near future.

After the consultation you may be recommended to change certain items in your diet, or add some additional items. There may be recommendations for your lifestyle as well as vitamin and mineral supplements or herbal fluids to take for a certain period of time.

At last, the Naturopath will stipulate in what rhythm a follow up consultation is required and which tests have to be performed (if necessary).
