Naturopathy is all about finding the innate point of balance within each individual. Naturopaths trust in your body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself and acknowledge that all bodies are truly unique. They look beyond symptoms to identify and treat underlying causes of illness by considering you as a whole person – mind, body and spirit. Your practitioner will search for the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies to address your health concerns.
You can expect a visit to a naturopath to take one hour or more. On your first visit your student naturopath will take a very thorough wellness history, asking about your diet, lifestyle, stress, and environmental exposures. They may also conduct a physical examination, take your blood pressure, check your pulse, take photos of your iris and possibly request further laboratory tests if necessary. Alongside prescribed therapies, which may include nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, flower essences and iridology, your practitioner will work to empower you to make the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve and proactively maintain the best possible health.
You might visit a naturopath for a range of acute or chronic conditions such as stress, arthritis, liver ailments, diabetes, ear infections, gout, asthma or heart conditions.
