There are so many conditions that can be supported by naturopathic treatments – anxiety, sleep, digestive problems, menstruation issues, menopause, hormonal imbalances (men and women) and energy.  This is not an “either/or” situation.  We work along with doctors and other health professionals in supporting you.

Why do people come to us?  In some cases, they want to try natural approaches before taking things further; in other cases they have chronic conditions and want to try a naturopathic approach.

Our naturopathic approach involves nutrition, lifestyle and herbal medicine.  All of the plants we use have proven effects.  They are also easy to use!  We give you a formula and you take an agreed dose each day.

Our focus is practical.  We will listen to you and provide you with healthy solutions based on sound scientific principles and using the latest academic research on natural treatments.  We take the time to listen and to understand your individual lifestyle in arriving at an appropriate treatment plan for you.  We know life isn’t perfect and we work within your constraints to develop an agreed plan with you.

There is so much you can do to improve your health.  We work with you and support you on the way, listening to your feedback and modifying your natural health programme as needed.
