Naturopathy is an umbrella term, encompassing nutritional medicine, herbal medicine and energetic essences. It is a holistic healing practice that employs evidenced based knowledge and ancient philosophy, to help promote self-healing on a physical, psychological and emotional level.
Nutritional medicine involves making a connection between diet and health, respecting the importance of a balanced whole-food diet, as well as incorporating nutritional supplementation to correct any biochemical imbalances.
The foundation of Western Herbal Medicine (WHM) is based upon the rich history of traditional medicine from around the world, including European Herbal Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. WHM draws upon the philosophies of these ancient holistic healing systems and adds modern forms of clinical research and standards of manufacturing, that are approved by the national regulating bodies.
Energetic essences balance the vital force that underpins one’s state of health and wellbeing. I use Bach Flower or Australian Bush Flower Essences to formulate personalised flower essences in the form of liquid tinctures. These remedies are part of an integrated treatment plan to address the energetic and emotional aspects of the healing process.
