Naturopathy: the health solution to living in a toxic world
Using the guidance of an experienced naturopath is nowadays the very best means available to return to a state of true health. Keeping your body clean on the inside, minimising the degeneration of ageing, preventing you from falling victim to debilitating (and fatal) diseases and helping you to lead an energetic and vital life, are all areas that are the domain of the Naturopath. While we mean absolutely no disrespect to the medical profession – we see doctors as essential to health care, in particular emergency care – doctors are simply not schooled in the intricate science or inherited knowledge of nutrition and herbal medicine. Regardless of their mastery of medical science and expert management of acute health situations, they are not taught how to successfully treat chronic conditions beyond suppression or management of symptoms.
At Natural Pain Solutions we successfully treat chronic conditions every day. Our approach is that your body wants to heal, and has a built-in natural healing ability. To observe the natural self-repair of a child’s skinned knees is to witness this everyday miracle. In fact, your body is constantly repairing itself, whether from viral damage, muscular strain, oxidation from toxins and mental stress … all kinds of inflammatory processes are continually being generated by your diet, lifestyle and environment and are being repaired by your body. Problems begin to occur when your body is not getting the correct nutrition, exercise or cleansing it needs to function optimally and self-heal. Eventually, these problems may result in a pathology that can be detected using medical diagnosis tests and hey presto! You have a disease. However, as sudden as it seems, in reality your body has been moving towards a disease state over a period of years.
Naturopaths focus on discovering the true cause of your ill-health.
In naturopathy, we don’t diagnose disease states (that is the doctor’s domain) – instead we use clinical naturopathic testing to identify nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, heavy metal and toxic loads, parasite impacts, pH levels, cell health and a whole lot more to get an in-depth understanding of the internal environment of your body. Circulation to different areas of the body is a particular parameter we look at because without proper circulation it is impossible for nutrients to get to where they need to go.
Clinical testing enables us to do the first part of our job as naturopaths, which is to figure out what is preventing your body from healing. Often clients come to us because they feel unwell but nothing is showing on their medical tests. This is the ideal time to use clinical naturopathic tests to investigate further and find out why you are experiencing symptoms of ill-health – before your body deteriorates to the point where a disease state can be diagnosed.
Naturopaths optimise your body’s self-healing ability – and then teach you how to stay healthy.
The second part of our job is to set about changing the internal environment of the body so that it can repair itself. This is achieved through expert advice on dietary change, targeted natural medicines, acupuncture and lifestyle advice. Normally clients either see our practitioner by coming for casual consultations (initially fortnightly, then monthly) or through a 12 month health program. Our health programs are great value and also have the advantage of establishing a long-term framework to follow an action plan designed to restore your health to an optimal level. They also enable us to monitor your progress through regular testing.
The third part of our job – which happens alongside the second – is to educate you on how to maintain your health long-term, so you don’t have to suffer from the degenerative diseases that afflict most people who consume the typical western diet and lifestyle.
Common conditions treated by Naturopathy:
Below is a list of common conditions for which people come to see us for a naturopathic consultation.
- Digestive problems (IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, bloating, constipation, nausea, - flatulence etc)

- Stress, Anxiety and Depression
- Thyroid imbalances
- Weight management
