Naturopathic Medicine, is a practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the 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, positive 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.
The Role of the Naturopath
Linda aims to educate, empower and motivate the patient to assume more personal responsibility for his or her health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet.
She will not simply treat the manifestation of a disease and its effects but rather search for the cause and treat it. Prevention of disease is accomplished through naturopathic education which builds a lifestyle that supports health and wellbeing.
If you have a sick pet, (mainly dogs and cats) Linda can offer her natural treatments for them as well to get them back to normal health and wellbeing...(without the side effects of drug treatments).
Benefits of Naturopathy
A Naturopath is trained to employ safe and effective natural therapies that will support and stimulate the healing power of the body in the gentlest, least invasive and most efficient manner possible.
Linda uses a range of methods to assist in the healing process including herbal medicine, nutrition – diet and lifestyle recommendations, vitamins and minerals, flower essences, meditation, homeopathy, hair, tongue, and nail analysis, iridology and massage or reiki healing.
The individual is viewed and treated in naturopathic medicine as a whole, composed of a complex interaction of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and other factors. Thus patients suffering from everyday colds as well as more serious, chronic conditions such as allergies, skin disorders, inflammatory conditions, stress etc will benefit from naturopathic treatment.
An initial appointment will take up to 1 hour in which your medical history and general lifestyle will be reviewed in order to determine a naturopathic treatment regimen suited to your individual needs.
Diagnostic procedures such as physical exams, blood and urine analysis may be required in order to establish a treatment and health-promoting program. Naturopathy is suitable for everyone, from babies to the elderly.
