Combining the traditions of food as medicine, dietary meal planning along with scientific advances in the use of nutrients at therapeutic doses, management and prevention of disease - that is the treatment of Nutritional Medicine.
Nutritional Medicine incorporates the study of food pharmacology, the food system, biochemistry, human nutrition, relevant government regulations and public health, and considers how each can impact our health. Anyone interested in improving and maintaining their health can benefit from seeing a Nutritionist.
Naturopathy's primary goal is one of supporting self-repair. Arguably the most appropriate approach in the challenge of chronic disease and the broad range of syndromes. As the human body is a finely tuned organism, given the correct monitoring, treatment and support - it is capable of self-healing.
The healing power of life is the only healer and the physician should do no more than help it on its way. This is our guiding ideal. No-one doubts that self-repair is a vital phenomenon. However, modern medicine has moved away from the classic principle that all healing is self-healing.

In both cases, sometimes only minor changes can make a huge impact on how you feel and respond to other treatment modalities. Chronic problems can take longer (sometimes months), its good to know that improvement will be felt within a few days to a few weeks - this does greatly depends upon the persistance and effort of the client. As a general rule, treatment duration is around 1-3 months for each year the problem has persisted.
