Nurtura Health Program
“An ounce of prevention is worth many pounds of cure” (especially after the fact).
The specific interest of our Naturopaths is to assist you in restoring optimal health for your age and stage of life. The first step is to analyse why you are unwell. Many factors may be precursors to a state of not feeling well, feeling tired all the time, feeling “hormonal” and knowing that your hormones are not balanced, and just not even coping with the day to day stresses of life. In addition, you may have inflammation and discomfort, be challenged with not being able to lose or put on weight, have lost your appetite, and maybe not even able to comfortably empty your bowels on a daily basis. If you are not functioning with vital energy and enjoying life, it may indicate that some of the body’s functions have become impaired, challenged, or compromised in some way, even in the absence of any actual diseases or abnormal pathology.
At Nurtura Health, our Naturopaths choose to undertake a comprehensive assessment on your initial visit. This involves you completing some detailed questionnaires prior to your initial consultation. This enables your Naturopath to preview your previous medical and surgical history, along with presenting symptoms. As a result, the time in your initial consultation can be maximised and allow for additional assessments and analysis to be undertaken. After collating all of this information, the Naturopath will discuss a treatment plan with you. By taking this course of investigation, your Naturopath is attempting to address more than just your symptoms. Obviously something is causing those symptoms. By focusing the treatment to that area, and not just taking a “shot-gun” approach, our Naturopaths work with you to help you achieve the best outcome for your health. It is so easy to “whip” the body, or try to make changes to already compromised health without first nurturing and restoring healthy function. This can result in worsening the presenting condition.
At Nurtura Health, in addition to your initial consultation, your Naturopath may conduct other assessments including Iridology or Live Blood Analysis.
Treatment programs at Nurtura Health may include:
- Dietary and lifestyle advice
- Cleansing programs
- Nutritional remedies
- Herbal preparations
- Colon hydrotherapy (colonic irrigation)
- Bowen therapy
- Lymphatic or remedial massage
- IFAS skin and nerve stimulation
