The body is supported and encouraged to heal and strengthen itself
A naturopath practises medicine based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. While firmly science based, modern naturopathic treatment also preserves the traditional wisdom of natural medicine.
It is the naturopath’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create an optimal internal and external environment.
In order to promote a picture of health, a holistic approach is utilised. Finding the reason for the symptoms or illness can often aid in maintaining a long term picture of health. As recently seen on Catalyst (“Could food be making us sick – very sick?”), modern medicine is identifying beliefs that traditional knowledge has been treating for years. Recent research is identifying that the health of your digestive system, particularly your bacteria present, can heavily interfere with the way your body functions. Naturopaths have been following this belief for years.
The naturopaths at the Australian Menopause Centre are here to help our patients (and others) reach and maintain their picture of overall health. If there are any health issues that our hormones are not addressing, do not address or cannot address, a referral to our naturopaths is given. Following a thorough history, it is up to the naturopath and the patient to create a treatment plan to build an environment and/or strengthen the body to heal itself. This picture of good health is often under-rated and sadly undervalued. As Hippocrates said, a wise man ought to realise that health is his most valuable possession.
Due to our goal of helping people Australia wide, all naturopathic consults are completed telephonically.
