What to expect during a consultation
Your initial visit will last approximately one hour during which the naturopath will enquire about your current state of health, symptoms, medical history, as well as any medications or vitamins that you are currently taking. Lifestyle questions regarding such matters as your dietary habits, sleep patterns, exercise regimen and stress levels will also be addressed. Iridology and Kinesiology are often performed to gather further information on the condition of the various body systems.
Naturopathy, or the Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae) encompasses most of the therapeutic techniques in Alternative Medicine. Its origin goes as far back as man. And is based on the principles that the body is self-healing. The body will repair itself and recover from illness spontaneously if it is in a healthy environment.
A naturopathic treatment plan may include nutritional advice, vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal remedies, and life style counseling.
Iridology is the science and practice of analyzing the iris of the eye, to determine the state of the tissues within the body.
Iridology can reveal a predisposition to certain disorders and disease long before they have reached the awareness threshold. And, can be used for prevention of disease allowing for a more holistic approach to health and treatment of existing disorders.
Herbalism refers to the use of plants to treat a variety of medical conditions.
The herbs are administered in many ways and are used both internally and topically. Herbs facilitate the healing of a person as a whole and may be used for all physical and some mental/emotional disorders.
An individual can be allergic to anything he or she comes into contact with, like foods, herbs, vitamins, chemicals, pollen, etc.
Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of chronic illnesses which, when left untreated can become serious. N.A.E.T. (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques) is a safe and effective way to eliminate allergies.
Cleansing & Detoxification
There are many ways to cleanse the body. We believe in meeting the individual at their current state, listening to their needs and goals, and fine tuning the cleanse program as needed during the process. We may choose a mild or a deeper cleanse, according to the particular condition or according to the person’s preference.
Although basic detoxification begins with diet, detox programs may include fasting, juicing, nutritional fortification of the liver, lungs, kidneys, bowels, and blood.
Toxins not properly eliminated from the body are stored like fat eventually accumulating to the point of causing disease. A detoxification program removes toxic wastes from the tissues, blood and cells of the body, thus facilitating optimal health.
