TRUDY CADOO - NATUROPATH
As a Naturopath, I believe that health is more than the absence of disease. It is the balance of many factors including mental/emotional and physical wellbeing. I enjoy working with a wide range of clients from children to the elderly, athletes to expecting mothers and all who believe they could benefit from the wholistic and integrative approach of natural medicine. I have a special interest in Children’s health, Wellness programs, Weight Loss programs and Detoxification.
With a warm, realistic approach I am passionate about empowering people to wellness through naturopathic principles. I have enjoyed over 12 years in the natural health field, 10 of those as a naturopath.
What Is Naturopathy?
Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy, is the practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human 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 effect.
The foundation of Naturopathy is the philosophy of the "healing power of nature". This means if the body is in a healthy and supportive environment it has an innate healing capacity. Treating underlying causes, as well as the presenting symptoms rather than suppressing them ensures I provide a wholistic approach to treating disease and illness.
After gaining insight and total understanding of the overall health and well being of my patients, I then use a combination of personal care and attention, traditional knowledge and skills along with scientific research to form a complete health assessment. This enables me to fully understand all underlying causes of the condition and thus determine the most suitable and specific treatment.
Treatment may include nutritional medicine (therapeutic nutritional supplementation), dietary changes and interventions, western herbal medicine, flower essences along with counselling and lifestyle advice to enhance, promote and restore well-being.
