Naturopathy recognises the healing power of the body's own and inborn intelligence and applies the following principles:
the body can heal itself given the right conditions
investigates the root cause of the illness rather than symptoms
observes the whole person and considers individuality
prevention over cure
Healing is a matter of time, but it is also a matter of opportunity.
Naturopathic Nutrition promotes the use of whole, nutritious, and organic foods as well as rainbow vegetables and fruits. Diversity in the colours of vegetables and fruits we consume is fundamental to optimal health. Why is this? Each colour pigment contains a different compound offering different benefits and supporting different functions in the body.
As a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, I always consider the healing power of nature, striving to bring the body back to homeostasis. A constant acidic state of the cells and tissues may inhibit this process. While the body is extremely clever in maintaining the acid/alkaline balance, I prefer to recommend some extra tools to achieve that optimal alkaline reserve. I work with GPs to obtain medical and laboratory tests in addition to functional tests as diagnostic tools. Combining these results with our findings from your case history furnishes us with a pretty good idea of what is going in the body.
