Naturopathy or Natural Medicine
In naturopathy a wide variety of alternative therapies are utilised in order to support the individual needs of each person in order to support their body’s own innate healing mechanisms. We work to find the underlying or root cause of an illness in order to return the body to a state of optimal health and wellness.
These therapies are based on the premise that they must use the healing power of nature and should be the least invasive and as gentle to the body as possible. These methods and treatments rely exclusively on natural remedies, such as sunlight, fresh air, water, a healthy diet, herbs and nutritional supplementation, at Vitalise Health Naturopathy these therapies include Bach flowers, herbal medicine, nutrition, mindfulness, irridology, some homoeopathic remedies and therapeutic massage.
Naturopathy is also used as a preventative therapy, when you have a genetic history of chronic disease or just in order to stay in an optimal state of wellness.
At Vitalise we follow the naturopathic principals of:
- First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)
- The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
- Identify and Treat the Cause (Tolle Causam)
- The practitioner as Teacher (Docere)
- Treat the Whole Person
- Prevention is the best cure
- Establish health and wellness
