I am interested in all enhancing all of my patient’s lives from the moment they get up to the moment they go to sleep, and all the time in between. With the right advice and your tailor made treatment, your body can rebalance and restore its natural flow and energy and heal itself.
Naturopathy uses the following modalities:
The use of herbs is a safe and effective way to support the healing process in the body by targeting certain organs and tissues. Herbs can balance hormones, provide support in times of stress and manage pain among many other things. We use them in liquid (herbal tincture) and tablet form and also in creams.
By following the saying ‘food as medicine’, our first line of treatment would be to use food to balance nutritional deficiencies detected. We prescribe nutritional supplements where these imbalances need further support, along with lifestyle advice, depending on the individual in question.
Homeopathy is an energetic medicine, prescribed according to the patients signs and symptoms. The technique stimulates the body’s innate healing ability by using diluted preparations. Based on the principles of ‘like cures like’, homeopathy works on the premise that is a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small (potentised) amount of that substance may cure the illness. For example, a patient says that when she has hayfever, her eyes water. She is prescribed homeopathic ‘Allium cepa’ (onion), this may reduce watery eyes. Homeopathy is gentle and safe to use for all, especially babies and children.
A modality that dates back to the 1600’s, looking into the Iris gives me an insight into how you use your energy to digest food, your immune status, ability to detoxify and eliminate waste and how you maintain and repair your body. How will it help? It helps me gain a better understanding of you from an energetic perspective. It is not a diagnostic tool.
Bach flowers (founded by Dr Edward Bach circa 1920) are the essences of around 38 individual flowers, all said to relate to a different human emotion. For example, the Bach flower Mimulus is used when there is anxiety or fear around a specific thing or event. The remedy can provide courage to overcome this fear. Bach flowers are safe for everyone and fantastic for kids.
I have also trained in Neuro Emotional Technique and Energy Balancing Technique and use these modalities during my consultations with excellent results.
Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T)
As we know, emotions can effect your whole health. By using N.E.T I can help you decrease stress by helping you identify and ‘let go’ of negative emotional patterns. N.E.T is a safe, non invasive and natural way to resolve long term health issues that have an emotional componant. It is also used as a stress relief tool.
Energy Balancing Technique (E.B.T)
Discovered by Dr Devi Nambudripad, it is a method that helps to balance energies in the body.
Using Dr Nambudripad’s Oriental medical theory, a food intolerance is seen to cause an energy imbalance in the energy meridians. This can subsequently cause a blockage in the meridian flow of energy, contributing to sensitivities and allergic reactions/intolerances. When Energy Balancing Technique removes or clears the blockage in the meridian, that particular allergen has been shown to remove adverse reactions with future contact. This treatment is non invasive and gentle for all ages.
