Naturopath Townsville…. What is it all about?

A question I often get asked is…. What exactly does a naturopath do?

We are natural health practitioners that work closely with diet and lifestyle habits and behaviour’s. Our focus is on nutrition from the foods we eat, nutritional medicines, herbal medicines and homeopathy.

Our point of difference is that we take a holistic approach to health that runs alongside traditional naturopathic philosophies as well as an evidence-based practice. We are unique in the way that we look at your diet, your lifestyle, and your nutritional intake because quite often these are the major players, driving your symptoms and/or condition. We also take a close look at emotional factors, stress levels, mood, sleep patterns, family/genetic history, and environmental toxin exposures.

An initial consultation generally goes for about an hour - this gives your naturopath plenty of time to get to know you and your health concerns which helps us to understand and address any underlining cause driving your health complaint which in essence, is one of our naturopathic philosophies - to treat the root cause of disease and not just the symptoms.

What does a naturopath treat?

Naturopaths treat a variety of symptoms and conditions - pretty much all conditions! Our treatment plans are non-invasive and because we run alongside nature and nurture, we are working together to improve your health outcome.

Some common complains and conditions we see in clinic include;

  • Digestive conditions (constipation, diarrhea, SIBO, IBS, dysbiosis, leaky gut, reflux, bloating, pain)
  • Stress, fatigue, mood disorders (anxiety and depression)
  • Learning and cognitive function in children
  • Food allergies/intolerances
  • Sleep and insomnia
  • Skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis, acne, ulcers, boils, skin rashes)
