Working with nature and the body
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, referred to a healing energy that flowed through all living beings, this, he called ‘the healing power of nature’.
The philosophy behind my work is to use tools such as Iris analysis, herbal medicine and other natural means to awaken this healing energy available to all of us.
Herbs have been used for millenia and continue to be used by over 70% of the Earths population. I am committed to using herbs and natural means of re-balancing the body where possible. Using minimum intervention for maximum effect. There is also a strong scientific basis behind my work, research based studies have confirmed the use of many herbs and diagnosis sometimes entails lab tests of hair, saliva and stools, depending on the problems that are presented.
Herbal medicine can help with such diverse conditions as digestive disorders, hormone balance, blood sugar balance, detoxification, stress, anxiety, nerves, bones and joints, as well as most conditions that affect the human body.
The beauty of herbs is that they can be used for conditions that are not considered serious enough to justify a visit to the doctor, yet these 'minor' conditions such as digestive disorders, hormone problems and weight gain often have a serious impact on our happiness.
If you look at health as a continuum, with optimal health at one end and disease at the other, then en route to disease, you will have less energy, or you may experience discomfort in some part of your body. If these early signs are treated with over the counter drugs, they may disappear. But the root cause will not have been addressed.
Optimum Health -> Signs -> Symptoms -> Disease
From a Naturopaths point of view, the best time to tackle the problem is when the first signs appear. Paying attention to what your body is telling you is the first lesson in wellness. The sooner we listen to what the symptoms are telling us, the easier it will be to bring the body back to a healthful state. My work with you will help us to identify the root cause of the symptoms you have been having, and I will give you herbal and natural treatments to help your body return to health.
During a consultation, we will look at your what your current symptoms and problems are, I will help you to understand the reasons behind these symptoms, and look at ways in which we can help your body back into health, using herbs, flowers, natural supplements and lifestyle changes.
I work with each person in their physical, emotional, mental and energetic needs. I use iridology and sclerology to see what is happening inside the body and to identify which organs and systems need balancing. I use Herbs, natural foods, flower remedies and supplements to help the body return to balance, complimented by detoxification techniques as priorities come up.
I can also test for various conditions such as allergies, digestive imbalances, parasites, hormonal imbalances, gut permeability, if these are required, they help me to fully identify what the priorities for treatment are.
