Services & Therapies
Naturopathy is a health profession which approaches health problems in a wholistic way without the use of conventional drugs. Improved health and well-being can be achieved with the help of iridology and a choice of remedies which can include vitamin and mineral supplements, individualised herbal formulae, flower essence, aromatherapy and creams. Dietary and lifestyle changes are also incorporated.
The practise uses the healing power of natural therapeutic techniques so that both the mind and body are supported during the process of healing. It is suitable for all ages, and can alleviate a large variety of illnesses and conditions such as digestive problems, fatigue, PMT and menopause. An individual does not necessarily need to be unwell to benefit from natural therapies. Naturopathic treatments enhance our body’s potential to heal, which can help prevent disease.

History Of Naturopathy
The practise of Naturopathy traces back to the 18th century natural healing systems, which include hydrotherapy and nature cure. A German immigrant named Benjamin Lust introducted naturopathy to the US in 1902 by founding the American School of Naturopathy. This was at the time where dietary principles (e.g. minimising saturated fat) has become popular in society. By the 1960’s, the practise of naturopathy had gained significant popularity and continues to expand in knowledge to this day.
