Natural Medicine

Natural Medicine (or Naturopathy) is a holistic healthcare system that recognises the ability of all living organisms to heal and maintain themselves. The body is programmed to fight for survival, and whether in health or illness, it will strive for an equilibrium which would allow it to function. We all have observed that cuts and grazes heal, bruises dissolve, broken bones knit together again and a cold will run its course leaving our immune system stronger in the end. 

Sometimes the body needs assistance in healing itself when the illness is more serious. Natural Medicine can be the first port of call as it is gentle, works with the body without over-riding its physiological processes, and instead of side effects has many side benefits. It also has to take into consideration the intricate inter-relationships of various organ systems in the body and how they affect each other. A disruption in one area – whether structural, biochemical or mental/emotional – will inevitably lead to a dysfunction in another area of health.

As a Naturopath I will investigate the presenting symptoms of an ailment in order to identify the underlying causes of health imbalance and help to promote the innate self-healing mechanisms within the individual. Each person is genetically, structurally, biochemically, metabolically and emotionally unique and will respond differently to the same pharmaceutical medication or natural remedy, stress, physical strain, social and cultural influences.


Natural remedies such as:

  • foods
  • exercise
  • massage
  • sunshine
  • fresh air
  • water
  • heat
  • medicinal herbs and their extracts
  • minerals and vitamins are used to bring the body back into balance and enable it to recover
  • electro-magnetic therapies such as FSM
