Perth Naturopathic - Naturopathy Services
What is Naturopathy?
The term Naturopathy was coined around the turn of last century yet its roots date back thousands of years. The term is used to describe a way of treating people that used only natural products via modalities such as Herbalism, Homoeopathy, Iridology, Nutrition, Massage, Kinesiology, Acupuncture, Flower essences and many others.
Naturopathy is built around a number of principles and these include:
- First do no harm
- Treat Holistically - i.e. consider the physical, emotional, mental and the spiritual when treating someone
- The physician is a teacher - they are there to educate and empower their patients and imbue them with the responsibility for their own good health
- Prevention is better than cure - just as your Dentist wants to see every six months so does your Naturopath. All of us will stray from the path and in the long term prevention is cheaper than cure
What do we use?
At Perth Naturopathic and Herbal Clinic we have a strong emphasis on the use of Medicinal Herbs in both tablet and liquid form. We also use Homoeopathic Remedies, Diet and Nutrition, Flower Essences, Nutritional Supplements, Amino Acids, Oils and Creams.
So often called Alternative medicine, Natural remedies have been around as long as humans have. From the first time a leaf was used to bind a wound to the ancient folkloric herbal remedies of almost every culture, to body works and the advent of homoeopathics in the 18th century natural remedies have been with us for ever.
In fact many of the medical drugs that are used these days are taken from copying the chemistry of nature and then manipulating it to achieve a specific result e.g. Valium from Valerian. Seems unusual to call it alternative medicine doesn't it.
Fertility Services - Male & Female
One particular area of interest for Gordon Carruthers N.D. one of our Naturopaths is male reproductive health. So much emphasis is placed on the female of the species when fertility issues, misscarriages and genetic iregularities occur.Recent research suggests that the health of the male partner is just as important.
The health, age and habits of the father have important ramifications for the child. Thankfully nowadays alot can be done in terms of sperm DNA testing and regimes to turn a poor semen analysis into a healthy one.
Prostate health is another area of concern for men and once again Naturopathy offers hope. Not only to improve inflammation. Also improved PSA readings (a measure of Prostate health) Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and complimentary care for Prostate Cancers.
