What is a Naturopath? Most people don’t truly understand what a naturopath is and what their degree entails:
Most people don’t truly understand what a naturopath is and what their degree entails:A naturopath not only does 3 – 4 years study in herbal medicine, nutrition, diet therapies, flower essences, aromatherapy etc but they also need to study anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, clinical diagnostics, pathophysiology, biochemistry, physical examination. and everything in-between!All of these studies are EVIDENCE AND MEDICALLY BASED. All TGA approved herbs and nutritionals have been clinically trialled and are continually clinically trialled and analysed for their vast array of actions in the body.
Naturopaths really are preventative health specialists.
They cannot legally practice without being registered and insured with a government approved registration body.
Needless to say, naturopathy which is still not integrated into orthodox medicine, has been in a state of evolution with its certification.
Healthy House is very different kind of naturopath though, as we leaves prescriptions til last, and if possible, none. We treat and challenges diet and lifestyle habits and makes this your first medicine. Sometimes just tweaking someone’s diet or lifestyle choices, so that it suits their individual constitution, can be all it takes to get you well.
We not only employs herbal medicine, homoeopathy, iridology, food and lifestyle prescriptions and guidance but also incorporates Ayurvedic, Chinese dietetics and blood type into her naturopathic health coaching
So don’t be scared that we will be selling you multiple supplements!!!
At the same time, be prepared to be challenged on your current habits and belief systems around health, even if you think they are healthy, they just may not be right for you.
And, sometimes, there is definitely a place for a prescription to get you back on track and undo any damage and imbalances that are in action in your body, as we apply changes in diet and lifestyle and emotional well being.
