Naturopathic medicine is a holistic approach to health which combines evidence based practices and a belief in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. With an acceptance and appreciation of the healing power of nature, Julia utilises natural therapies including herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary planning and lifestyle guidance to restore health where health has deteriorated, optimise health where good prevails, and prevent or slow health deterioration.
Naturopathic consultations are individualised to your specific needs through a holistic and evidence based approach to wellness. Depending on your requirements, prescription of herbal medicine, nutritional medicine and/or additional testing may be employed.
Herbal medicine has been used for many years. Drawing on both traditional knowledge and modern scientific research of herbs, herbal medicine is used to help adjust the body and mind back to a state of balance. Herbs can be used for acute illnesses, such as coughs or colds, as well as for chronic states such as stress or autoimmune conditions.
Nutritional medicine is the assessment and modification of dietary habits, nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. An individualised dietary plan will be developed, as well as provision of nutritional supplements if deficiencies cannot be corrected through diet alone. Ongoing education and support will be provided to enable you to implement the necessitated changes, ultimately ensuring that you are able to reach and maintain your health goals.
In your initial consultation, a confidential and thorough case history is taken which includes your current, past and family medical history, as well as your diet and lifestyle. Additional information needed for assessment may also be gathered using techniques such as iridology, appropriate physical examinations, and referral for functional and/or pathology testing. This will be followed by the development of a treatment plan using the most effective nutritional / herbal supplements and practical changes to diet and lifestyle.
