Naturopathy - with Christine
We all possess the ability to heal ourselves
Naturopathic medicine is a multidisciplinary approach to health care. A blend of the traditional knowledge of natural medicinal medicines whilst using current advances in science.
I will work in well with your doctors treatment, incorporating a holistic treatment that will include diet and lifestyle counseling and may also include herbal and nutritional supplements and flower essences.
I will focus on investigating the cause of your condition while implementing symptomatic relief where possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR CONSULTATION
During your initial consultation, I will give you plenty of time to talk. We will discuss specific health issues, and your health history and what you would ideally like to achieve. This is done in a caring environment where you will feel safe and supported. We will then discuss naturopathic options focusing on diet & lifestyle with the support potentially of some herbs and vitamins. We will work together to support your health and emotional well-being in a practical and caring manner by creating a health plan together, tailored to your specific needs, based on where you are now in your life.
