Naturopathy uses therapies to support and stimulate a healing power from within the body, “in the gentlest, least invasive, most efficient manner possible”. Naturopaths aim address underlying health rather than simply treating the symptoms. We use functional laboratory tests to get to the root causes of patients’ symptoms including: iridology, nail analysis, tongue analysis, urine analysis, basal temperature and pH testing. In chronic and complex conditions we often recommend laboratory testing which may involve blood, urine, hair, saliva and stool tests. We have specialist knowledge in understanding blood test results. Treatments include diet changes, food supplements, herbal remedies and lifestyle changes.
