Naturopathy is a personalised and holistic approach to health that addresses underlying causes of illness and health issues.

Naturopathic medicine enhances the body’s natural healing ability, and restores healthy function and vitality by combining scientific disease diagnosis with effective medical-grade natural medicines and non-invasive treatments.

We thoroughly assess client case history and health status using a number of specialist testing (functional pathology) and assessment (live blood screening) tools to find the underlying cause of health problems. We also analyse family and personal history, as well as lifestyle factors like quality of sleep, diet, stress, hormonal influences, emotional factors, bowel health and other factors that may be affecting health.

After identifying the cause, we prepare an individualised treatment program, which may include herbal medicine, nutritional therapy or homeopathic medicine, as well as effective dietary programs and lifestyle prescriptions.

Naturopathy also takes a preventative and proactive approach to health. We can help you identify potential future health issues using functional testing and past medical history, and develop a preventative health plan that helps you to take control of your long-term health.
