Nature cure

Naturopathy, also called ‘Nature Cure’, holds as its primary focus the belief in the healing power of nature. Naturopaths believe that the body, mind and spirit are naturally inclined towards balance, and provided with the right circumstances, will organically find and maintain equilibrium. As a Naturopath, I apply a variety of healing philosophies, techniques and tools such as Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Flower Essence Therapy, Lifestyle/spiritual counseling, Energy Balancing Treatments, Iridology, Detoxification/Cleansing Routines and much more, offering personalized recommendations encouraging balancing in the mind, body and spirit.

Naturopathy treats the person and not the disease, therefore any and all health complaints (physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual), can be addressed with naturopathic medicine.

Naturopathic principles:

  • Vis Medicatrix Naturae – The healing power of nature. There is ‘vital force’ or ‘life force’ which, given the right conditions, will self-heal or self-correct.
  • Prevention is preferable to cure.
  • The root (underlying) cause of dysfunction is identified and treated, not the branches (symptoms).
  • The WHOLE person is treated – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
  • Health is much greater than just ‘absence of infirmity’ – health should be abundant vitality.
  • The PERSON is treated, not the disease. Each individual is unique and each person responds in a different way.
