What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic health care practice that aims to optimise health by working harmoniously with the body’s natural healing capacity. Naturopathic care is centred around natural treatments such as herbal and nutritional medicines, as well as diet and lifestyle advice.

Naturopathic practice is based on the knowledge that all of the body’s systems are connected. A health concern presenting in one place may in fact relate to issues in other body parts. For this reason, Naturopaths thoroughly investigate the functioning of various bodily areas, to identify and address any imbalances.

Naturopathic assessment comprises of thorough case taking to identify unique drivers of health concerns, as well as dietary and pathology analysis.

How do I know if I would benefit from seeing a Naturopath?

Anyone can benefit from seeing a Naturopath, even if you don’t have a specific health complaint. Naturopathy aims to nurture good health, not just treat disease.

Naturopathy can be particularly beneficial for those who feel like something is not quite right, as this is your body’s way of telling you it needs help. This may present as fatigue, digestive issues, insomnia, menstrual problems or weight changes. Even if routine medical investigations haven’t revealed any issues, Naturopaths have various alternative tools to help you find the answers you’re looking for.

Naturopathy is also excellent for people with chronic health concerns who prefer a more natural approach, or who would like additional support alongside conventional medical treatment.

Naturopathy is perfect for the person who wants to really understand their health, and who wishes to take a proactive part in their healing journey.

What does a consultation consist of?

Naturopathic assessment comprises of thorough case taking to identify unique drivers of health concerns, as well as dietary and pathology analysis. The ultimate goal of Naturopathic care is not just to alleviate symptoms, but to nurture long term optimal health. The initial consultation comprises of an exploration of your health concerns and overall health history, including a discussion about your symptoms, medical history, family history, lifestyle and diet.

After this consultation, Aimee will collate the information gathered to create a unique treatment plan that will be presented in the next consultation.

What type of pathology testing is used?

Aimee is passionate about pathology analysis, which helps reveal nutritional deficiencies or body systems that require support. Aimee reviews previous Medicare blood test results and/or tests requested by Aimee from the GP.

Functional testing may also be employed in special circumstances to assess food intolerances, hormonal profiles or gut microbiome quality.

What does a course of treatment entail?

In the second consultation, Aimee presents you with your own ‘Roadmap to Health’ – a document outlining your personal short-term and long-term treatment goals. This roadmap also includes a personalised treatment plan using a combination of herbal and nutritional supplements and dietary strategies.

In follow up consultations Aimee monitors progress on short-term and long-term health goals and addresses any new health concerns that you may have.
