What is Naturopathy or Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathy is the combination of traditional medicines, natural therapies and conventional health sciences, used to address full body physical and emotional wellbeing. It is believed that the body has the ability to heal itself, but in some cases it just needs natural support to ensure that the ecosystem within the body can function to its full potential and effectively repair and restore the body to a state of good health. Rather than treating a symptom of illness, a Naturopath will aim to identify and treat the underlying cause. Through education and support, a Naturopath can guide you on a path to sustained health and wellbeing.
What are the benefits of seeing a Naturopath?

Through diet and lifestyle advice along with nutritional supplements and herbal remedies, Naturopathy can be used to improve hormone cycle regulation causing menstrual or fertility issues. Natural therapies can also be an effective treatment for digestive problems, fatigue and stress.
