Health Conditions

What sort of conditions can a Naturopath help with?

Naturopaths treat a wide array of conditions ranging from mildly annoying to chronic and debilitating. Chronic conditions respond particularly well to Naturopathic treatment due to the focus on the underlying cause of the problem not just the presenting symptoms.

How long will it take to work?

Your journey back to wellness and balance depends greatly on the length of time the issue has been playing havoc with your body, your body’s individual response and the health condition itself. All treatment plans are tailored specifically for your individual condition so response time varies. Client’s have reported results varying from 2-3 hours to 2-4 weeks. Chronic conditions are particularly responsive to Naturopathic treatment due to the emphasis on treating the underlying cause not just the symptoms.

Some people may be unknowingly suffering from the cumulative effects of suppressive treatments to which they have been subjected in the past and, in such cases, may respond to treatment slowly. As your Naturopath I have the knowledge and experience to know when to ‘wait” while the corrective work is being done, and when to change the treatment plan in line with your progress.
