WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?
Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy, is a practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human mind and body. By integrating conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies and traditional medicines, naturopathy treats the patient's mental, emotional and physical states for a lasting effect.
The foundation of Naturopathy is the philosophy of the "healing power of nature". This means that the body has its own healing energy within and with the help of naturopathic treatment; the body can repair itself and recover from illness if it is in a healthy and supportive environment.
ABOUT NATALIE FOX
Natalie Fox BHS.ND (Hons) completed her degree through the University of New England and Health Schools Australia in 1998.
During this time Natalie also completed a four and half year residency with her mentor Dr Arthur Newman. Dr Arthur Newman was a well known leader in natural health for over twenty five years on the Gold Coast. He was a qualified Naturopath, Chiropractor and Acupuncturist.
After the completion of her studies, Natalie stayed on with the practice and began working as a Naturopath and took over Dr Newmans patients when he retired.
After sixteen years of being in practice, Natalie has become very proficient in the field of bioenergetic medicine. This method of practice is mainly performed on a Vega Diagnostic Machine.
Being specialised in a unique diagnostic method of treatment enables Natalie to contribute a service that is quite different from any other. While still encompassing the many varied aspects of naturopathic medicine. After screening treatment may include various homeopathic, vitamin/mineral/herbal supplements, or laser/acupuncture therapy.
Naturopathy encompasses many modalities that effectively complement one another. By being able to utilise many different modalities in her practise Natalie can help to provide patients with a better total health wellness outcome.

I first went to see Natalie for a throat infection almost 7 years ago. I had been getting them chronically for about 5 years, and this one was particularly virulent. I couldnt believe how quickly I recovered from the illness after my appointment! Under Natalies general care, my chronic throat infections have completely discontinued, and I am in the best health of my life. I am so thankful that I live in an area where naturopathic and homeopathic medicine is available. Thank you Natalie for the best medical care I have ever received!
Natalie Fox was recommended to us in 2001. My son was 2 years old and had an active social life. He was a very healthy child. That winter, however, we caught every cold that came our way. We took our son to Natalie so we would not spend another winter like the previous one. I appreciated the thoroughness of her interview of his characteristics and tendencies. We did not feel rushed and her knowledge of her field was obvious. She figured out what his constitution needed to bring him back to healthy balance and he spent the next seven years with nothing more than an occasional cold. She is skillful and empathetic and we are thankful we have established a relationship with her.
I have always been drawn to seeking health and well-being through holistic approaches. I am so grateful now to know Natalie, and so greatly appreciate the care and thoroughness, the breadth of knowledge and integrity that she brings to her work. She has helped me effectively and efficiently with every issue Ive brought to her, from allergies, to mood swings, to digestive problems, to heart health and hormone problems. It gives me a sense of well-being just to know that she is here, and that she is my naturopath.
Natalie has worked with me for eight years and guided me through a number of ailments including trauma, mental illness, female issues and post partum depression. I have been very grateful to have her in my life and the life of my family. Her incredible intuition and knowledge have impressed me immensely as has her ability to treat the cause and not merely the symptom. She was the first naturopath to make me aware of food allergies and how they affect so many aspects of my life and consequently reduced mental imbalances that had caused much suffering. Likewise, through recognizing my blood sugar problems and liver issues she was not only able to address physical problems but emotional ones as well. She supported, advised and counselled me through my pregnancy and has been my sons healthcare provider offering a great deal of good advice for starting his life in a natural and healthy manner. I am truly indebted for her wisdom and friendly care.
