Acupuncture, homoeopathy, herbal medicine, manipulation, and nutrition all depend on the body’s ability to heal itself if pushed, needled or coaxed in the right direction. Although naturopathy is a relatively recent word, its therapeutic approach and principles represent the essence of a broad holistic attitude to health and disease.
Sandra practices the following modalities as a Naturopath
Nutrition is one of the main modalities practiced by Naturopaths and alone can significantly improve many health conditions.
Vitamin & Mineral Therapy is essential to the development and survival of our bodies. They are involved in a multitude of biochemical reactions in the body as well as maintaining structural integrity, acid/alkali balance, fluid balance and muscle contraction.
Remedial Therapies covers many types of hands on body work. I have chosen to specialise in one of these called the Bowen Technique. This is a soft tissue technique to adjust the skeletal and soft tissues of the body.
Bach Flowers is a remarkable system developed by Dr Edward Bach, who in his search for a safe and effective treatment discovered 38 flowering plants and trees picked at the time in their blooming that, will give them the greatest healing power. These flowers act as a catalyst to positive inner transformation.
Herbal Medicine is perhaps the most ancient form of Medicine and possibly the most universal. Traditionally Herbs are capable of restoring organ function and well-being.
Iris Diagnosis or Iridology is a diagnostic tool, where the iris of the eye is studied for information relating to the health and well-being of the person.
What happens in a consultation
The first consultation takes approximately one hour and following consultations half hour. During this first consultation I ask many questions, read the Iris and take a small piece of hair to use to test on a Vega Machine. This test allows me to check for any imbalances in the body that I may not have been able to pick up from the interview and iris diagnosis or otherwise confirm the information from the interview and iris diagnosis is correct. I have the results from this test a few days later.
Homeopahty is a way of healing that is based on activating the human body’s own curative powers using medicaments extracted from the animal, mineral and herbal kingdoms.
