What is Naturopathy and how can it help me?
In today’s world the pressures of daily living can lead to the disturbance of our natural equilibrium. The stresses of work, inadequate family or personal time, lack of sleep and environmental challenges all play a factor in our overall health.
Symptoms of imbalances are warning signals of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Imbalances are a result of a process rather than a misfortune. Given the right conditions: physical, emotional and spiritual, the body can self-correct.
The philosophy of naturopathy or natural healing is to stimulate the healing power of the body. Its focus is on prevention and lifestyle.
A client and a Naturopath form a team that work together to address the body holistically.
As a Naturopath my goal is to teach you tools to help you achieve optimal balance. It is my role to help you recognize the process that has started the imbalance and to help correct the lifestyles that promotes it.
The 5 Pillars of Physical Health
Body: When the body is functioning as it was intended, without excess stress and following a balanced diet and regular exercise it has the ability to be healthy.
Mind: Our outlook on life is a significant factor in our well-being. Our peace of mind is greatly enhanced when we are grounded in a spiritual life that brings perspective and meaning to the challenges of life
Family: Our family life, our friendships and our community life is a support that as human beings we all need. The more intimacy we share, the more we give of ourselves and the more we feel supported by our “tribe “Family, the more we boost our overall health and longevity.
Finances: We know money does not bring happiness and fulfillment to our lives. However, the fear of lack of money plays a huge role in our ability to manifest our true potential. It can be the source of much stress in our being and family. Finding meaningful work and building a relationship with money that is not based in fear of lack is a contributing factor to our ability to enjoy life and live in the moment.
Society: It is an innate desire in human beings to want to give and to contribute to the wellbeing of the world and the society. Unfortunately when our lives are filled with stress and imbalances we tend to alienate ourselves. It is in the giving that we find depth and meaning to our lives.
Spirituality: Our ability to connect to our higher purpose and Divine self may be compromised in times of stress and uncertainty. We may find ourselves feeling alone and without direction. We may feel that we are walking in circles never getting anywhere. It is important to take a moment everyday to simply connect to yourself.
What should I expect from a visit to a Naturopath?
A visit to a Naturopath will be unique and catered to your needs. A first visit is usually about 1hour and a half and could be more. As I work with the whole person I will consider a variety of factors. We will talk about lifestyle, diet, stress, environmental factors and family history. The setting is comfortable and casual and all information is confidential.
Some of the treatment paths I work with as a Naturopath are:

What can be helped with naturopathy?
Many imbalanced conditions may benefit from a natural care visit. Under no circumstances is there a diagnosis placed on the client or a claiming to cure the below. The point of the treatment path is to work in conjunction with any other allopathic treatment necessary, to respect the client’s choices and to support the healing process.
