What is Naturopathy?

The‭ ‬principle‭ ‬behind‭ ‬naturopathy‭ ‬is‭ ‬to‭ ‬look‭ ‬at‭ ‬a‭ ‬person‭ ‬from‭ ‬a‭ ‬holistic‭ ‬perspective,‭ ‬in‭ ‬other‭ ‬words,‭ ‬as‭ ‬an‭ ‬entirety.‭ ‬Each‭ ‬human‭ ‬is‭ ‬a‭ ‬complex‭ ‬being,‭ ‬consisting‭ ‬of‭ ‬a‭ ‬physical,‭ ‬emotional‭ ‬and‭ ‬spiritual‭ ‬body.‭ ‬The‭ ‬combination‭ ‬of‭ ‬these‭ ‬three‭ ‬elements‭ ‬creates‭ ‬the‭ ‬reality‭ ‬of‭ ‬our‭ ‬health‭ ‬state,‭ ‬and‭ ‬the‭ ‬absence‭ ‬of‭ ‬good‭ ‬health‭ ‬and‭ ‬wellness‭ ‬is‭ ‬termed‭ ‬as‭ ‘‬dis-ease‭’‬.‭ ‬Naturopathy‭ ‬focuses‭ ‬on‭ ‬finding‭ ‬the‭ ‬cause‭ ‬of‭ ‬disease,‭ ‬rather‭ ‬than‭ ‬only‭ ‬treating‭ ‬the‭ ‬symptoms.‭ ‬Naturopathy‭ ‬addresses‭ ‬nutrition‭ ‬as‭ ‬well‭ ‬as‭ ‬using‭ ‬additional‭ ‬tools‭ ‬such‭ ‬as‭ ‬herbal‭ ‬medicine‭ ‬and‭ ‬flower‭ ‬essences.‭ ‬Medical‭ ‬testing‭ ‬is‭ ‬also‭ ‬within‭ ‬my‭ ‬scope‭ ‬of‭ ‬practice.‭ ‬I‭ ‬bring‭ ‬BodyTalk into‭ ‬a‭ ‬session‭ ‬if‭ ‬it‭ ‬seems‭ ‬appropriate‭ ‬and‭ ‬is‭ ‬desired‭ ‬by‭ ‬the‭ ‬individual,‭ ‬and‭ ‬alternatively‭ ‬BodyTalk‭ ‬is‭ ‬available‭ ‬as‭ ‬a‭ ‬stand‭ ‬alone‭ ‬session.‭

My‭ ‬focus‭ ‬as‭ ‬a‭ ‬naturopath‭ ‬is‭ ‬to‭ ‬address‭ ‬each‭ ‬element‭ ‬during‭ ‬consultation,‭ ‬creating‭ ‬individual‭ ‬treatments‭ ‬that‭ ‬focus‭ ‬on‭ ‬the‭ ‬key‭ ‬aspects‭ ‬of‭ ‬a‭ ‬person‭’‬s‭ ‬health‭ ‬with‭ ‬consideration‭ ‬of‭ ‬personal‭ ‬interests‭ ‬and‭ ‬needs.

What‭ ‬is‭ ‬Nutrition‭?

Hippocrates‭ ‬said‭ “‬Let‭ ‬food‭ ‬be‭ ‬thy‭ ‬medicine,‭ ‬and‭ ‬medicine‭ ‬be‭ ‬thy‭ ‬food‭”‬.‭ ‬He recognized‭ ‬the‭ ‬ability‭ ‬of‭ ‬diet‭ ‬to‭ ‬alter‭ ‬the‭ ‬health‭ ‬state,‭ ‬and‭ ‬the‭ ‬deliberate‭ ‬use‭ ‬of‭ ‬foods‭ ‬to‭ ‬eliminate‭ ‬health‭ ‬conditions‭ ‬and‭ ‬promote‭ ‬well-being.‭

Optimum‭ ‬health‭ ‬and‭ ‬digestion‭ ‬relies‭ ‬on‭ ‬a‭ ‬number‭ ‬of‭ ‬factors‭ ‬such‭ ‬as‭ ‬a‭ ‬balanced‭ ‬diet,‭ ‬sufficient‭ ‬water‭ ‬intake‭ ‬and‭ ‬stress‭ ‬management.‭ ‬Our‭ ‬bodies‭ ‬can‭ ‬easily‭ ‬become‭ ‬depleted‭ ‬in‭ ‬essential‭ ‬nutrients‭ ‬through‭ ‬poor‭ ‬dietary‭ ‬choices,‭ ‬regular‭ ‬junk‭ ‬foods,‭ ‬alcohol,‭ ‬smoking‭ ‬and‭ ‬stress.‭ ‬The‭ ‬Modern‭ ‬diet‭ ‬and‭ ‬lifestyle‭ ‬is‭ ‬aimed‭ ‬at‭ ‬convenience‭ ‬rather‭ ‬than‭ ‬disease‭ ‬prevention.

Additives‭ ‬for‭ ‬prolonged‭ ‬shelf‭ ‬life‭ ‬affect‭ ‬digestion‭ ‬and‭ ‬elimination‭ ‬processes,‭ ‬and‭ ‬promote‭ ‬toxic‭ ‬build-up‭ ‬leading‭ ‬to‭ ‬skin‭ ‬conditions,‭ ‬hormone‭ ‬imbalance,‭ ‬sleep‭ ‬quality‭ ‬and‭ ‬mood‭ ‬changes.‭ ‬This‭ ‬means‭ ‬that‭ ‬our‭ ‬bodies‭ ‬respond‭ ‬not‭ ‬only‭ ‬to‭ ‬what‭ ‬we‭ ‬eat,‭ ‬but‭ ‬when‭ ‬and‭ ‬how‭ ‬we‭ ‬prepare‭ ‬and‭ ‬eat‭ ‬it.‭ ‬When‭ ‬we‭ ‬become‭ ‬aware‭ ‬of‭ ‬these‭ ‬principles‭ ‬and‭ ‬apply‭ ‬them‭ ‬to‭ ‬our‭ ‬daily‭ ‬routines,‭ ‬we‭ ‬can‭ ‬begin‭ ‬to‭ ‬live‭ ‬our‭ ‬lives‭ ‬deliberately,‭ ‬harmoniously‭ ‬and‭ ‬beneficially.‭

What‭ ‬is‭ ‬BodyTalk‭?

BodyTalk‭ ‬is‭ ‬a‭ ‬healthcare‭ ‬system‭ ‬designed‭ ‬by‭ ‬your‭ ‬body‭ ‬-‭ ‬to‭ ‬address‭ ‬the‭ ‬emotions,‭ ‬physical‭ ‬or‭ ‬environment‭ ‬-‭ ‬THE‭ ‬WHOLE‭ ‬STORY,‭ ‬and‭ ‬is‭ ‬suitable‭ ‬for‭ ‬people,‭ ‬animals‭ ‬and‭ ‬plants.

Stress‭ ‬can‭ ‬overload‭ ‬our‭ ‬energetic‭ ‬circuits,‭ ‬causing‭ ‬them‭ ‬to‭ ‬fail‭ ‬or‭ ‬beome‭ ‬compromised,‭ ‬like‭ ‬plugging‭ ‬too‭ ‬many‭ ‬appliances‭ ‬into‭ ‬an‭ ‬outlet‭ ‬and‭ ‬tripping‭ ‬a‭ ‬circuit‭ ‬breaker‭ ‬in‭ ‬your‭ ‬home.‭ ‬You‭ ‬have‭ ‬blown‭ ‬a‭ ‬fuse‭ ‬and‭ ‬must‭ ‬go‭ ‬reset‭ ‬it,‭ ‬but‭ ‬often‭ ‬times‭ ‬the‭ ‬body‭ ‬cannot‭ ‬reset‭ ‬these‭ ‬blown‭ ‬circuits‭ ‬on‭ ‬its‭ ‬own.‭ ‬As‭ ‬a‭ ‬consequence‭ ‬the‭ ‬body‭ ‬then‭ ‬must‭ ‬continue‭ ‬to‭ ‬function‭ ‬in‭ ‬a‭ ‬less‭ ‬than‭ ‬ideal‭ ‬state.‭

As‭ ‬a‭ ‬BodyTalk‭ ‬Practitioner,‭ ‬I‭ ‬rely‭ ‬on‭ ‬the‭ ‬guidance‭ ‬of‭ ‬the‭ ‬body‭’‬s‭ ‬natural‭ ‬wisdom‭ ‬to‭ ‬find‭ ‬the‭ ‬proper‭ ‬order‭ ‬in‭ ‬which‭ ‬they‭ ‬are‭ ‬to‭ ‬be‭ ‬restored.‭ ‬Rather‭ ‬than‭ ‬using‭ ‬invasive‭ ‬techniques,‭ ‬the‭ ‬session‭ ‬is‭ ‬focused‭ ‬on‭ ‬stimulating‭ ‬your‭ ‬body‭’‬s‭ ‬natural‭ ‬healing‭ ‬response‭ ‬to‭ ‬establish‭ ‬better‭ ‬communication‭ ‬with‭ ‬the‭ ‬body.‭
