Top five reasons why you should visit a naturopath

Naturopathy, which is a holistic approach to wellness, has long been known as nature’s gift to whole health and harmony.  

Most of us strive for optimum health and wellbeing.  This usually means accessing the abundance of health services and products available at our fingertips. There is no doubt that traditional prescription medicines will always hold a fundamental place in our health regime.  However, more Australians are striving for a more balanced proactive approach to their health. And this is where naturopathy plays a vital role. 

So why should you see a naturopath? There are five great reasons!

1. Naturopathy focuses on disease prevention

Naturopathy focuses on the underlying cause of a condition and applies treatments that work in alliance with the natural healing mechanisms of the body rather than against them. A naturopath not only treats the health challenge but also provides clear strategies to patients on how to empower and improve their life by minimising illnesses from the outset. 

2. Naturopathy may assist with prevalent health conditions facing most people today

Naturopathy services may assist with prevalent health conditions including cardiovascular health, hormonal imbalance, fertility, menopause, digestion, immune system improvement, stress, sleep disorders, allergies and skin conditions, migraines, degenerative illness such as arthritis and also preventative health strategies. 

3. Naturopathy uses non-invasive and natural treatments

A naturopath uses non-invasive and natural therapies to tap into the body’s self-healing abilities.  Physical symptoms are examined, as well as the influence of lifestyle factors and emotions on the person’s whole health. Nutrition from wholefoods and superfoods can be used to strengthen and nourish the body. There are a range of practioner-only products that are safe to use and are evidence-based.

Naturopathy can work in harmony with traditional western medicines    

If you can find a naturopathic practitioner who works alongside pharmacists and GPs to safely integrate evidence based natural medicine with western medicine – then you’ve hit the jackpot! This whole health approach can put your mind at ease knowing that experts have created treatment plans tailored specifically to your health needs.

4. Naturopathy consultations are affordable

Naturopathy consultations can range from $75 to $100 for an hourly consultation (please note prices may vary). That’s the cost of a facial or massage! And when you think of the benefits to your health and wellbeing, you won’t hesitate.

Go to the experts

Combining both prescription medicine and natural medicine may be a daunting and complex option, but with the right advice from experts – namely pharmacists, GPs and naturopaths; a successful whole health strategy is possible.

The key is to do your research.  Find a pharmacy where pharmacists work closely with naturopaths to be able to safely and effectively integrate prescription medicine and natural medicine for optimum patient outcomes.

Be ready to ask lots of questions as pharmacists are there to help you uncover all your medication choices – both traditional and natural.
