An integrated approach to wellness
Modern medical research is continually providing greater insight into the body’s biochemistry and nutritional pathways. As a result, we have a better understanding of how herbal and nutritional medicine can treat the cause of disease as well as the symptoms. Our goal is to provide the most effective treatment with minimal side-effects and toxicity using herbal and nutritional medicine wherever possible. However, we are aware of the vital role that mainstream medicine can play in treating and managing chronic and life-threatening illnesses. It also provides a range of tools and techniques which can help diagnose and understand disease states.
What is naturopathy?
Naturopathy takes an investigative approach to health, exploring the complexities of the human system, including physical, emotional and environmental aspects to create a complete picture that addresses all the elements of human functioning and wellbeing. Naturopaths use a combination of lifestyle, diet changes with nutritional and herbal support to address the underlying causes of disease. Naturopathic practitioners are primary care physicians with knowledge of both conventional and natural medicine. They favour a holistic approach with minimal use of surgery and drugs.

Integration at its best
Many people are intuitively drawn to the idea of combining conventional and complementary therapies. However, it is only when a health experts work together that you can enjoy the benefits of true integration. Each member of our team has a profound respect for every other practitioner, medical or complementary. Every decision is made in consultation in order to establish the most effective, least toxic and least invasive course of treatment for your condition.
The team continuously monitors the efficacy of your treatment. You can feel confident that your herbal and nutritional medicines will not interact in a negative way with any prescription medication you may be taking. While this isn’t common, it is most likely to occur when a patient feels unable to discuss his or her complementary therapies with an unsympathetic doctor. Where both conventional and complementary practitioners are working together, every aspect of your treatment is considered in relation to the whole.
