WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?
Naturopathy is the creation of conditions which enable the body to heal itself. The basic principle of Naturopathy is that the human body has the ability to heal itself if given the right nutrients and environment. This encompasses a broad holistic attitude to health and dis-ease where health depends on harmony between body, mind and spirit, and also between man, nature and the environment.
The Naturopath uses a variety of methods to restore and promote the body's own functional ability according to these essentials of life. ALL symptoms of ill-health are signs of disharmony within the whole person and it is the person that requires treatment, not the disease.
Once the body is cleansed, nourished and balanced it has the ability to heal and recover from disease, as well as maintain health and long life.
Food is a powerful source of preventative and therapeutic medicine. The body and mind can only function properly if given proper nourishment. Nutritional medicine is about providing the body with the best possible fuel and nutrients to enable it to function optimally. Cleansing of the digestive system is also an important part of nutritional medicine.
Also, as important as the fuel we give our body, is the ability of the digestive system to digest and absorb those nutrients. We are exposed to many toxins, chemicals and additives in our foods and the environment today and these can affect how well our body utilizes its fuel.
There is a lot of confusion in today’s world about what we should or shouldn’t eat, so many different theories and diets are flooding the media. So many, in fact, that it is a struggle to decide which information is the right fit for each individual. Natural medicine and nutrition takes the confusion away.

RBTI - analysis
RBTI analysis is used to measure the componenets and residues in samples of urine and saliva, to determine what is happening in the body at a biochemic level. By analysing the carbohydrates, pH, salts, cell debris, nitrates and ammonia, it is possible to see where the body is out of balance, and how well or how poorly you have been digesting and assimilating your food, and therefore what energy you have available from that food.

we eat, we live on the energy created by the food that we eat"
