Naturopathy is a holistic approach to healing your body. Naturopaths consider every aspect of the body, mind, spirit and environment as they help you restore balance and health.

When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love.

What is Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a natural approach to health that focuses on supporting your body in finding balance and well-being through non-invasive methods. By addressing the root cause of health issues rather than just the symptoms, naturopathy provides a comprehensive and holistic solution to health concerns.

Unlike nutrition-based therapies, naturopathy considers all aspects of a patient’s life – physical, psychological, and emotional. Consequently, a treatment plan includes not only nutritional advice but also herbal remedies, supplements, and lifestyle guidance, such as self-care tools. This approach ensures 360-degree coverage of your health.

As a naturopath, my approach to health and well-being is personalised and holistic. I believe that every individual has a unique place of optimal health and balance at different stages of life. When given the right conditions, the body has an innate ability to restore itself and reach that ideal state. In my practice, I see myself as a facilitator who empowers and guides patients on their journey to find their own place of health, balance, and happiness.

How I Work as a Naturopath

At Total Healthcare Naturally, my approach as a naturopath revolves around understanding each patient’s unique needs and offering personalised consultations for an in-depth assessment of their health.

Before your initial 60-minute consultation, you will receive a health questionnaire to complete. During the consultation, I will delve deeper into your specific needs and explore key aspects of your health, such as diet, digestion, sleep, lifestyle, and emotional well-being. You will receive a personalised treatment plan that may include nutritional supplements, a  herbal prescription, and lifestyle advice.

A 45-minute follow-up consultation is typically scheduled two weeks after the initial appointment to assess your progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed. Follow-up consultations are crucial in naturopathy, as they allow us to progressively work towards an end goal and achieve optimal results. The number of sessions varies depending on each case. During follow-up consultations, I can assess your progress, discuss any changes since your last visit, and readjust your treatment plan as needed. If you’ve undergone any tests or visited your GP for health concerns, we can also discuss those results.

This clinic only uses high quality clinically effective supplements and herbal medicines.

I aim to have you noticing improvements within the first week. This renewed vitality paves the way for the deeper work that is often required. Each day your body builds strength to progress through the longer-term treatment plan, ensuring you achieve optimal health.

Ongoing Support

After the initial naturopathic consultation, a follow-up appointment is scheduled two weeks later to refine and deepen the treatment plan, addressing long-term drivers of disease, poor health, and imbalances. To ensure sustained progress and prevent relapses into old habits, we recommend regular, shorter follow-up appointments lasting 20 to 30 minutes. These ongoing support sessions help keep patients on track toward their health goals.

Once the initial health objectives have been achieved, we advise patients to schedule appointments every 2-3 months to maintain their well-being. Over time, as their health continues to improve, we may extend the interval between appointments to every 6 months. This ongoing support is essential for nurturing lasting wellness and empowering patients to lead healthier, more balanced lives.

A personalised and evidence-based approach to helping you discover how you became sick and what we can do to restore optimal health.

Discovering the Cause

Identifying the cause of your illness or disease is the first step to resolution. We spend the first Naturopathic consultation discovering the underlying drivers to your ill health. There are questions from me, that dig deep into how you came to experiencing your symptoms. It’s also a time for you to understand the interconnectedness of your body and environment. Learn how your mind, body, thoughts, emotions, and external environment influence your health.

Personalised Prescription

Your treatment plan may include prescriptions of high-quality practitioner-grade nutritional or herbal supplements. These are the best way to promote healing and retore balance at a cellular level. These prescriptions are fluid. Meaning they’ll most likely change as time progresses and your body heals. It’s the reason why I structure fortnightly appointments for the first three. My goal is to help you achieve optimal health, without having to rely on supplements forever. But they provide essential support to heal your body.

Dietary
Plan

The initial Naturopathic consultation will include simple dietary modification. My goal is to simplify the process. This helps you achieve progressive goals, moving you closer to achieving optimal health. Be empowered, encouraged, and guided every step of the way.

Functional
Testing

Functional testing may be recommended at some stage of your treatment. These tests help to identify specific imbalances, deficiencies, or reactivity states. I always discuss the recommended testing with you, ensuring the test is clinically relevant and beneficial to your health plan.
