Why come to see me?

Since this has to be the biggest question anyone who is thinking of seeing a Naturopath has to address I may as well write about it first. What does a naturopath do? Even more of a puzzle, how do you even pronounce ‘Kinesiology’ and what does that do? I hear these questions a lot! For my first blog post ever, I’ve chosen to write about Naturopathy. (More later on Kinesiology)

The Naturopathic approach is simple and pure: ‘Using nature to nurture’.

  • Access the healing power of nature – nature has the innate ability to heal
  • Identify and treat the cause – there is always an underlying cause, be it physical or emotional
  • Do no harm – a Naturopath will never use treatments that may create other conditions
  • Treat the whole person – when preparing a treatment plan, all aspects of a person’s being are taken into consideration
  • The physician as teacher – a Naturopath empowers the patient to take responsibility for his/her own health by teaching self-care
  • Prevention is better than cure – a Naturopath may remove toxic substances and situations from a patient’s lifestyle to prevent the onset of further disease
  • Plus, because you know deep down that emotional stresses make you feel physically sick you will be shown ways to develope awareness to support the healing process with affirmations, meditation and visualization to increase spiritual harmony.

Ask yourself, how bad has your health got to get before you do something about it?

I’m in the private sector so there will be a cost. If you like, it’s the price you pay for getting advice where advice has not been forthcoming. I have the time to give you the time. I’m generous with my time as well, giving free email support between appointments. This is because I want you to succeed in your quest for better health, or at least find the right path for you. Sometimes the wait between one appointment and the next is too long, leaving you struggling to make sense of why you may have a blinding headache and wishing you had never started. A few email conversations can resolve issues such as this giving you renewed hope that you are not alone, that I am here to provide a service.

However, I am not open 24/7 and therefore a GP has to be in the loop at some point, so my Registration form asks for your GP address to acknowledge this. I am not a substitute for medical advice and this is clearly stated on the Registration form too.  I am in tandem with medical advice and this is respected throughout the consultations.

In the confusion of internet advice, coming to see me has been likened to visiting a calm oasis. I have done the research, the continuous professional development, read the books and follow science not trends. This makes sense of what’s out there which is now ‘too much information’. Plus I have experience. I’m always adding to what I know – witnessing the suffering. Being in front of a person who has had a terrible experience with their health.

“What I can offer you – natural, healing, comforting, listening. ”

Now here’s the part that may interest you the most! There is so much to offer that is going to give you your health, or some of your health back, it is a personal joy to have these to give to you. Everyone who comes to see me is treated with respect, given invaluable insight as to why they have fallen ill and is then offered solutions which will bring them back to homoeostasis – balance. Your equilibrium, the balance of your health, is my speciality, regardless of what condition presents. The methods I’ve chosen I’ve worked out through trying every other way and settling for the most comprehensive and effective.

Is it only your fear that’s holding you back?   In truth, fear of change is one of the most common reasons for resistance to change because it stops you taking any action at all.

Not knowing what to expect can hold back the desire to get well. Here, the feeling of being ill takes over.  Feeling anxious can stop us trying something new and makes us resist change by stirring up fears of what is not known. We are creatures of habit. We like our routines and don’t like to be faced with the unknown.

Now here’s a thing. “If we always do what we’ve always done, we’ll always get what we always got”. Change is difficult but guiding you through the process smoothly is my way, with a brochure of good ideas for you to get started when you are ready. Have a read of my ebook ‘7 Ways to Reboot your Life’ whilst you take all this in. The download is at the top of the page.

Feel like you could know more but still aren’t sure then get in touch. I’m a phone call away! That’s a first step on your path to better health. The contact page has all the details.
