What is Naturopathic Nutrition?

Naturopathic Nutrition combines knowledge of up-to-date medical science with the wisdom of natural therapy. It is based on the principle that, given the right conditions, the body has an innate capacity to heal itself.

Whether you have a specific illness, an acute or chronic condition, or you just feel generally below par, nutritional therapy can help to improve your health and enjoyment of life. Good health is the feeling of abundant energy and the ability to cope well with the physical, mental and emotional demands made upon us. Attaining this level of health can be hard in the stressed fuelled modern world that we live in but you can get detailed and personalised advice in the form of a personal nutrition plan to help you get back on track.

There are 8 fundamental principles in Naturopathy which are fundamental to my practice:

  • The Healing Power of Nature – Naturopathic practitioners work to restore and support these inherent healing systems when they have broken down by using methods, foods and techniques that are in harmony with natural processes.
  • Vitality – Life force can be stimulated or suppressed.
  • First Do No Harm – Naturopathic practitioners prefer non-invasive treatments that minimise the risks of harmful side effects.
  • Find The Cause – Every illness has an underlying cause, often in aspects of the lifestyle, diet or habits of the individual.
  • Doctor As Teacher – A principal objective of naturopathic medicine is to educate the patient and emphasise self-responsibility for health. Naturopaths do this by empowering, motivating and informing the patient.
  • Treat The Whole Person – Health or disease comes from a complex interaction of physical, emotional, dietary, genetic, environmental, lifestyle and other factors. Naturopathic practitioners treat the whole person, taking all of these factors into account.
  • Preventative Medicine – The naturopathic approach to health care can prevent minor illnesses from developing into more serious or chronic degenerative diseases.
  • Establish Wellness – The primary goal of the naturopathic practitioner is to establish and maintain optimum health and to promote wellness.

So through my intense training and education as well as my own personal experiences I aim to support people from all walks of life to feel the best that they possibly can

I saw Andrea in 2017 for fatigue and weight related issues. The consultation was in-depth and very thorough which allowed her to build up a full history of my life. She is very welcoming and calm and I felt completely comfortable sharing my health concerns with her. Andrea’s advice on how I should move forward with my diet and lifestyle was explained in easy and simple terms – her knowledge and expertise was clearly demonstrated. I have no problem in recommending her to all those who need some help to gain control of an illness, to lose weight or to feel well whilst living a busy and stressful life.
