THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND WHAT I DO
The philosophy of naturopathic medicine focuses on treating the whole person and addressing the underlying cause, or causes. That is because our health is affected by a complex set of factors, including physical health, mental and emotional wellbeing, our genetic tendencies, environmental influences, and dietary intake. Naturopaths recognise these intricate interactions, designing treatments that reflect the needs of each patient.
