How would you like to dramatically boost your energy levels, achieve better health, balance hormone levels and increase your chances of conceiving a healthy baby?
Did you know that a visit to a naturopath could result in ever lasting positive changes in the way that you will feel and function?
Naturopathy provides concepts and strategies for building health care practices into models of preventative medicine rather than common model of illness management.
A naturopath takes a holistic approach to your health and looks to identify exactly what issues are affecting you and takes the necessary action to treat the cause of your problems rather than just symptoms.
Philosophically, naturopathic medicine views acute disease as the body’s attempt to purge itself of accumulated toxic substances. Therefore, most degenerative diseases are the body’s attempt to survive at a lowered state of health.
Over time your body is forced to accept toxins it is not capable of detoxifying and eliminating. Prolonged toxicity in the blood, infection and tissue inflammation results in decreased vitality, function and ultimately, in the degeneration of tissues.
If you experience allergies, digestive problems, fatigue, skin conditions, weight problems, fertility issues, stress, anxiousness or simply feel out of sorts then a qualified naturopath can help. A naturopath utilises treatments that work with your body’s natural healing process rather than just suppressing your symptoms.
This approach allows you to not only overcome any problems that you may have, but also improves your general wellbeing, boosts your immunity and increases your energy and vitality.
Western civilization is facing a progressive increase in immune-mediated, gut-related health problems, such as allergies, and autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Genetic factors are an unlikely explanation for these rapid increases in disease incidence.
These diseases are associated with impairment of gut barrier function and research shows the host defence mechanisms in the gut have decreased during the past decades.
Many disease complications can be greatly improved, and often completely healed, by the restoration and maintenance of a healthy intestinal environment. Treatment protocols that start at “the gut level” can often address many of the symptoms and inflammatory process of illness, by getting to the root cause of the condition.
An integrated, well-balanced intestinal environment not only improves the assimilation and digestion of nutrients, but also reduces reactivity to food antigens.
The delicate ecology of the human intestinal microflora has a subtle, yet pervasive influence on our general health. In cases of dysbiosis, when the microflora is damaged or imbalanced, by stressors both externally and internally generated, it is imperative that gut integrity must be restored first.
Deficiencies of many vitamins are common and increasingly being recognised as a cause of many chronic diseases. Important examples of the value of appropriate supplementation in the prevention and treatment of disease include the use of B vitamins to lower homocysteine (marker for higher risk of cardiovascular disease), the decreased risk of cancer with diets high in antioxidants and reduced risk of birth defects for babies whose mothers take vitamin supplements.
The Journal of the American Medical Association recently confirmed the value of nutritional supplementation and the inadequacy of our modern diet to supply strong, well-balanced nutrition or to satisfy the nutritional requirements of all. At the core of many treatment regimes is the choice of the correct multi-vitamin.
A well-selected multi-vitamin can provide vitamin, mineral, trace element and nutritional support for all conditions.
