A holistic approach to stimulate the body’s natural healing capacity.
Rooted in the belief that the body has an innate wisdom to be able to heal itself, given the right circumstances, Naturopathy is a system of healthcare that seeks to restore the body’s vital energy and stimulate its natural healing capacity.
It views people as individuals and recognises that we each respond in our own unique ways to influences, whether they are mental/emotional, structural, nutritional, social or cultural. Encompassing a variety of therapies and techniques, including; bodywork, nutrition, iridology, homeopathy, herbs and hydrotherapy, Naturopathy offers a holistic approach to medicine in order to view the person as a whole and address the root cause of a problem rather than simply focusing on the ensuing symptom(s).
Appreciating the connection and interaction between the structural, biochemical and mental/emotional components of all beings, Naturopathy recognises that disruption in one area invariably leads to dysfunction elsewhere. Therefore, its ultimate aim is to rebalance and reenergise the body in order to facilitate healing and continued good health.
Naturopathic philosophy is based on ancient wisdom that can give a deep understanding of human nature and the nature and course of disease. This wisdom is sadly being dropped from many modern scientific courses and, as I am passionate about the continued teaching of naturopathic philosophy, I have written a practitioner course which encompasses Naturopathic philosophy, Homeopathic philosophy, Principles of Homotoxicology, Tibetan medicine, Unani medicine, 5 Element Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. This course also contains modules on psychology, psycho-social skills, hydrotherapy, iridology and the effects of dentistry on our health.
I continue my training as a Naturopath by regularly attending professional development conferences. I have also written a Naturopath course (more information here) and am a founder member of the Society of Naturopaths. I am also the General Naturopathic Council coordinator for the Naturopathic Nutrition Association.
