An initial Naturopathic Consultation is a 1.5 hour session which gives us both the opportunity to understand your visions for the future, tailor make a health program and get you on track to reach your goals. We can discuss further requirements to help you to achieve your health outcomes such as laboratory testing, diet specifications, exercise ideals, mind/ body techniques, underlying conditions and treatment regime.
In Australia, we are fortunate to have access to heavily regulated, high quality herbal medicines that consider not only clinical experience of practitioners, but the ancient wisdom derived from centuries of use.
At Ask a Naturopath we use herbal and nutritional medicine for both acute and chronic conditions, and individually prescribe based on the presenting symptoms and the underlying causes unique to each individual.
Herbal medicine – Herbal Medicine is a treatment modality we use in our naturopath services using the inherent healing properties of plants as medicine, and is increasingly being validated by current scientific research and published literature.
Nutrition – We believe in using food as medicine; which is why nutrition is a core focus of our naturopath services.
Unfortunately, our modern diets combined with our lack of time mean we aren’t getting the nutrition we need to thrive. And poor diet ultimately leads to poor health and disease. Fortunately, even small changes can lead to significant health improvements.
As part of our naturopath services, any nutritional deficiencies are assessed with simple dietary changes recommended that are unique to each individual. At times, certain deficiencies may require additional supplemental therapy such as minerals and vitamins.
Functional pathology & gut testing – As part of our naturopath treatments, we may call for specialised pathology & GUT testing to further investigate the underlying cause of various health problems. We use these tests for issues such as gastrointestinal function, parasitic infections, hormonal imbalances, liver function, nutritional requirements and toxic metal analysis.
By delving deeper, we are able to treat not only the symptoms of your discomfort, but the underlying cause; leading to improved wellbeing for years to come. This is one of the best opportunities you can give yourself to start your health journey moving forward.
All Ask a Naturopath consultations are via our online clinic platform.
